we are doing the orlando area in may and i really simply cannot just do disney again. truly. lay it on me, what's fun and nature oriented in the area?
forget what i posted, it was too mean.
oops double post
just ranting. just hating mcmansions today and wishing that poor people had enough to eat and a sense of security and a solid roof over their heads no matter what...seems completely absurd that we can't manage that when 5% own 95% of the wealth. ok, done.
so this lady was on the radio bitching about having to give at the holidays, how everyone makes her feel like crap about not giving (she does not donate to anything for any reason)-citing that she was POOR. she was too POOR to give even five dollars, that it was a real hit to HER family, etc...and the host was commiserating, saying "everyone does what they can" etc...until she reveals her salary as 60K a year. in cleveland ohio (believe me, i know there is a huge difference across our country. i would say that would equal at least double in NYC or LA). now, i don't say this is a fortune, or enough to retire, but isn't that enough to not consider yourself Poor? it rubbed me so the wrong way.
i want a balled tree but we can't get it til xmas eve in that case...i have always had an artificial tree b/c i hate the thought of killing a tree, but i miss the smell. what do you guys do? anyone had luck with a balled tree that you kept in the house for more than 3 weeks??
so at PTA last night (which i worked setting up the dinner and then SERVING it all, so do get some brownie points there??) we had a door prize raffle. so there sits a beautiful red crate and barrel french press. i have been wanting one for ages and, ironically, our coffee pot broke yesterday. so dd's name gets called and she picks a .49c necklace. so me, worst mom ever, connives and wheedles for her to go trade it in for the french press!! i am such an ass. but damn, my coffee is good this morning. anyways, i promised a necklace making event on saturday with her best bud.
i can't find it and it's our only line.
