here is a facebook post by a young lady I know through church...
I know it's after 2 a.m. and we are playing our music pretty loud. But we are celebrating my bro in laws 30th and in four hours my nephew who is in the army and has been in Afghanistan for ten months will return back to Afghanistan for a long time. Am I sorry? Not one bit. Thanks for understanding.
my response:..."wow, I could not disagree with this perspective more"
I hate and do not get involved in Facebook 'squabbles'...but this just burns my biscuits.
It is good that this family has something wonderful to celebrate. BUT thinking this gives her the RIGHT to tell her neighbors "Am I sorry? Not one bit. Thanks for understanding" is just too immature and self centered for me. What if the neighbor has a newborn? What if the neighbor works a swing shift and that is his only time to sleep, What if the neighbor is a police officer who just came home from a 16 hour shift and has to wake up again in 4 hours to start a new one (and that has happened to my son). What if the neighbor has a mom with Altzheimers who loses it if she does not get to sleep by 7pm (and that has happened to me)
How dare this young woman think her celebration trumps the needs of her neighbors.
Thankfully I do not live near her, cuz 'friend' or not, I would have called the police!
okay vent over.
Sunday is gonna prove to be a busy day...that is why I am up before 6.
Gotta set up the crockpot for dinner. then,
Church, I'm not teaching as a group of young men and women from Ambassador Soccer Camps will be doing our church services...and I did not want the 5th and 6th graders missing out.
Switching cars with my son, as he is driving to Yosemite with a couple of the Soccer coaches. He has been hosting Victor a young man from Brazil and Matt a young man from England. My son drives a Hyundai commute car...I (recently) have something a li'l more comfortable for such a long trip.
Fremont, gonna drive to Fremont to deliver a kitty to an old friend of mine, Lori. She is adopting one that, well, actually the above woman's husband posted on facebook....and Fremont is a little over an hour away...But it gives me an excuse to visit...it has been a good 20 years since I have seen Lori. And, dgd, Adriana just may be going with me.
That means probably won't be home till early evening.
Still need to pack projects for Expo. I leave on Thursday. sooooooo excited. I am actually working a booth! I'm to work the Kiwi Lane booth on Friday...
Okay, get crockpot done, charge camera for the Yosemite group, worksheet for Sunday school, get off computer....and maybe squeeze in a bit of exercise before church.
