We had a very dense fog descend on our area the other day. It was quite eerie.

On a good day, you can see the valley (trust me on this one guys) and miles and miles down the road.

Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

I'm SO ANGRY right now.

I can't breathe.

My heart is hurting.

I cannot hold back the tears.

I swear I hate some people sometimes.

I keep thinking about my cousin and his little adorable buddies.

Having to save each other from a gun wielding mad person who is on a mission to kill anyone who got in his way.

No compassion whatsoever.

How can anyone be so evil and cruel?

Children at school, as young as FIVE years old.

Elementary school, kindergartners, KINDERGARTNERS!!!!

The babies, they were just babies!

Oh God I'm so mad.

My heart is aching and I cannot breathe.



 Gun control.

I got time on my hands

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today, so I made a list of things that don't tickle my fancy....

Straight to the list

1. Tags: clothes tags are a given. No one likes them. They are a nuisance and a waste of resources in my opinion. However, if there is one thing I despise more than clothes tags, it has got to be bedding tags. I HATE THEM! Nothing makes my skin crawl worse than the sensation of comforter or pillow tags rubbing against my skin. While I make sure to cut the tags off my bedding, I cannot do the same with other people's stuff.

2. Orange and/or citrus scented/flavored anything: I love a nice chilled glass of orange juice. My go to breakfast of choice is a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a side of orange juice. I also enjoy the occasional orange/mandarin/tangerine fruit and that is as far as my love for orange goes. Orange candy, orange soda, orange/citrus fragrances I cannot tolerate and they go straight to the trash. The smell of the fake stuff makes my stomach churn.

3. Cops

4. Flu shots: fact: the flu shot will not give you 100% protection against the flu. Fact: flu shots are mandatory for healthcare workers...unless you have a doctor's note. Fact: I've gotten the flu shot for the past 5 years. Fact: I've gotten the flu the last 3 out of the last 5 years. Fact: I currently have the flu. Fact: to hell with the flu shot. 

5. Uneven roads/potholes/craters in roads/steel plates: DC is notorious for uneven roads and crater sized holes in their roads. Some roads are so uneven, it feels like the car is going to lose a wheel, if not the entire vehicle falling apart while driving on it. NoVa on the other hand has a problem with manhole holes. There is one particular section of Rte 1 that feels like an obstacle course from having to constantly navigate around what seems like hundreds of  random sunken manholes which might as well be potholes. 

6. Hot drinks: they are great in theory. Nothing better than a hot cup of coffee, chocolate or tea on a cold day. But as soon as I finish a cup of whatever, I immediately feel really hot, like burning sweaty hot, and then my stomach starts to feel funky and I must chase it with an ice cold drink of water which gets me back to feeling as cold as I was before I had the drink. Lose-lose situation for me. Maybe I'm just weird.
