Domesticated....

Help! I've become domesticated!

Catching up on a post for the weekend, which actually didn't include much for me. The kids went to the Puyallup fair with mom and Uncle Bill. I stayed home with grandma and did some stuff around the house.

Things accomplished:

Cleaned the kitchen (dishes and all)
Made good dinners - early
Undirtied children (multiple times!)
Put away 2 baskets of laundry (out of the 5 we have down there *sigh*)
Did 2 loads of laundry (out of the 5 remaining loads - *still* catching up)
Took screws off the bed where the legs are missing
Moved the bookshelf, movie shelf and nightstand out of the closet
Moved games from tv stand to movie shelf (I can now close the door on the tv stand)
Discovered doors for the bookshelf! (I have some ideas on using them, too)
Picked up dirty clothes from the floor
Moved working dvd player from my room to downstairs (with help)
Hooked up said dvd player and verified it does work
Cleaned out some of the bookshelf
Took some of the books off the movie shelf and proceeded to scatter them over my room *facepalm*

Things to do:

Finish cleaning the bookshelf
Move books from movie shelf and floor into bookshelf
Install doors on top shelf of said bookshelf
Move nightstand to another corner
Clean off desk
Clean off hope chest and set up altar
Bring all dishes downstairs
Empty garbage into a garbage bag and take downstairs
Take all recycling downstairs (fortunately not many of dishes or cans)
Move bed and dresser legs to a drawer in the dresser in the closet (including screws recently removed)
Pick up all Tarot cards from floor
Rearrange electrical cords so that not everything is in one outlet and there's no cords going across my closet door
Take down the remaining pictures that were grandmas
Find all my wall hanging type stuff and put it up
Wash mirrors


I'm working on these things bit by bit. It won't be too much longer before the bedroom is *my* space. I need to find my oil burners though, so I can burn some lemon or something and cleanse the area metaphysically as well as physically. I did manage to find some time over the weekend to relax, though the kids were home earlier than I'd expected. Of course, it was early evening before I got to sit down (5 pm or so) and get online - the kids were, naturally, home at that time. *facepalm*

They had a good time, I'm told. They came home sporting body paint. Garrett chose a dragon for himself - green and blue. Jae chose a train for herself pink and blue. Apparently, they made the choices all on their own. Interesting to watch how they're interests develop.

Interesting

One of my favorite Tarot (non traditional tarot deck) decks to use is not in print anymore. There is, however, a website that's interactive. I used this site to do a reading for myself this morning. It's a simple 3 card layout, with the broad question of what I need to know for my day.

For those who are interested in the images: Morgan's Tarot

What turned up:

The Dream
Transmutation through Union of Opposites
It's a dog eat dog food world


Keep my head out of the clouds, nose to the grind.

Edit: I'll fix the link later, when I can look up how to write the html for it again. Urg.

Edit again: I think you were right, all it needed was a space. Nifty. Thanks :D

Whoa....

There are things in this world that never fail to amaze me. Humans are one - and this isn't always a good thing.

I just read (and agree with):
Plane stopped

The actual news article, and comments:

Plane stopped

The comments on this...astound me.

Driven by fear? Yes, I'll agree. What the hell do you think racism is?? The large part of it is driven by fear - fear borne from not understanding. Question, okay, I'll give you that. I may have wondered a little if it were me with my kids - but I certainly would not have demanded to disembark the plane, especially after it had started to taxi.
You have the right not to board the plane, please use it. Don't you inconvenience me or 100 other people because you're paranoid.

Of course all she could think of was 9/11 - it's been pounded into us relentlessly since it happened. How could she not think of it? Every time Bush wants something done, he waves the 9/11 flag. That creates paranoia, which in turn makes it much easier for him to take away our rights right under our noses.

She should be grateful that these men, who were not born in our country, love our country enough to die for it. I'm proud that they are, that they are a part of our armed forces in some degree. It's a hell of a lot more than she's doing, that's for certain. It's a lot more than I'm doing, I can say that. I'm grateful that any American - born here or not - is willing to join the armed forces and possibly forfiet their lives.

Unfortunately, I think people like this woman invalidate everything we stand for. Morals? Who needs those when you have paranoia! Oh, I forgot....she comes from the land of the KKK. If it isn't pale, it needs to be feared.

I, personally, feel that both American and this woman owe those men more than an apology. I mean, they must have to live with this on a daily basis. I think Bush should apologize for making people so paranoid. Seriously. Of course, I think Bush should apologize for a lot of things - including being born. Never too late for post-natal abortion!

For any government agency that may be reading this, I'm not serious. I'm too lazy to take such actions. I'd rather just bitch about it and glower a little. Besides, I've never been to prison and I don't think I'd like to try it out either, thanks. Not quite like a trial membership at the gym, now is it?
