The Most Pathetic Song in the World

March 31, 2009 by


I was listening to the radio yesterday and caught part of a catchy song. At first I thought it was Nickelback. The lyrics were self-absorbed and whiny, and the sound was, well, Nickelback-y. Turns out it’s actually by a band I’ve never heard of, Theory of a Deadman. The song is called “Not Meant to […]

Security and the Green Hill

March 26, 2009 by


I noticed this article today. The line that jumped out at me was, “the 14-year-old girl went missing from a baby-sitting job in 1998″. This is why I feel it’s so important to build a community of people who know and trust and look out for each other. People shouldn’t just disappear. Especially little people.

If it’s meant to be…

March 25, 2009 by


A friend of mine went through what was a really rough break up for her and it seemed that the thing that gave her the most comfort was the phrase “If it’s meant to be it’ll happen.” I’m really bad at being comforting in these kinds of situations, and since that made her feel better […]

Living in the Country

March 23, 2009 by


A lot of my Facebook friends have been taking the “Where should you be living?” quiz, and the most common result is “The country”. I can appreciate that. Some of my favorite pastimes are hiking around in the hills and trees, enjoying beautiful sunrises, and spending a pleasant evening with friends out on the front […]

Taking out the Trash

March 20, 2009 by


I don’t know how it is in your family, but when I was growing up, taking out the trash was a “boy” chore.  At first it was my Dad and then when Clayton got bigger it was his job.  It was the only chore that did not get shared, (not that I am complaining).  I […]
