Mindless Blatherings

I really should have gone shopping this week – we are OUT of fresh fruit and veggies but I’ve been trying to stretch things a bit this week, and to use up some of our frozen or canned stuff and…..well….here we are. It’s Friday and I did spend – well dangit – I can’t find the reciept.

I’ll have to find the recipet and then I can update…it was approx $50. I bought a large block of Sheep Cheese.

There is a part of me that is feeling a little bit pressured to hide things like paying a large amount of money for cheese when that money could be someone else’s entire weeks budget for food.

At the same time, I’m not trying to live anyone else’s life. We have made some choices for our life (and health), and some other choices were made for us (allergies, intolerances, etc) and we have to live with (and within) our choices.

Yes, I do buy speciality cheese, but not all the time, and we ration it out. I won’t be apologetic for the choices that I choose to make. So….that’s that.

That’s the deal with being open about stuff, and then dealing with the reality that you make choices that are different than others, and then dealing with your preception of what others might be thinking based on your choices.

It all comes down to judgment doesn’t it?

It’s amazing how judgmental we can be, and I think that we expect the same kind of judgment to come to us that we dish out. I hate judgment. It sucks! I try hard to not judge, not that I’m always perfect at it, but I try.

Okay – I could get all deep here, but I was just trying to whip up an update about how we are doing and what’s going on, and I’m getting all sidetracked…

I blame it totally on the downstairs renters. They are totally blaring their music right now and all I can hear is the thump, thump, thump of the bass in whatever song they are listening to. It’s AWESOME!

They’ve had a party every night for the past week and a half and it’s getting old. We’ve asled them to be considerate of the fact hat we have a family living upstairs, and then….that night they are still going strong at 4am. IT ROCKS! In SO MANY WAYS!

So, I’m tired! I’m also wondering how this fall/winter/spring’s cold, wet, dark, rainy season is going to affect me. I can feel the tiredness already starting to hit. That sucks, too!

Alrighty, well, now that I’ve spread my love and cheeriness all over the Internet – I think that I’ll just be done now.

Don’t forget to check out the store and to ENTER THE GIVEAWAY! Click here to read about the details.

And seriously, if you’ve never commented here or are lurking and unsure about de-lurking….come on….I won’t bite. I promise! Well, maybe only a little bit and only if you ask me to.

Someone has to win, and it might as well be you. Right?

  1. I bought almond butter trying to get myself off peanut butter and thinking it would be healthier for me…and well I am allergic to it! I have exima all over my eyes and they are so swollen and puffy and totally itchy and the stress levels have been not so bad and that is the only new thing I have added to my diet so I figure it has to be it…so weird…so annoying!
    not sure what that has to do with your post but there it is anyways! oh yeah I remember now, it was cuz you said you buy certain things are part of your eating choices!! now I remember where my train of thought was going!
    so I think I have been spending about the same amount for groceries but buying way less processed foods and more healthier foods. I bought rice crispies (cheap) and mixed it with the kamut crips (not so cheap) and walla I have a healthy not so expensive cereal…and the kids like it!
    I also have them right off milk now but I think Em is allergic to soy, it gives her a tummy ache so I am going to try rice milk for her. Since I have been off dairy I have noticed some major differences in me! not just the exima but in certain way too much information daily routines…anyways I feel better!
    k blabbering here maybe should post this on my blog now!

  2. With regard to your renters.. who controls the fuse box for the house? If it is you, then put a lock on it so they can’t access it.

    Then when they are blaring that rockin’ music at 3:00am … if you pray real hard maybe there might be a sudden power outage in their suite. It would be most unfortunate, but the lord works in mysterious ways.

    Even better… have Jon rig up a wireless receiver to one of their circuit breakers (using a relay). Then the lord can work without having to even unlock the fuse box.

    And even better… rig the remote transmitter so it is tied to the decibel volume in their suite.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if their power turned off automatically each time they turned the music up too loud.. even if you’re not home? I think so. So does God. He has a good sense of humour like that.


    (All parts for such a device can be found at radio shack and should cost about $20, not including solder and iron.)

  3. Wh had renters under us like that before we bought our house. The solution we did was mean and spiteful I guess, but it felt good. We woke early as we went to work during the day. I took a hammer and hit the floor many times where their bed would be under. After a few days of this, they were more considerate at night!
