Stress Day

The Big story in the news is 1/4 people are stressed out and know it. No kidding. I spend a lot fo time trying to keep myself from screaming incessantly. So, I read, and garden when I can, and walk. I have limited my double shots on ice for the expense, but it is amazing how much money one can spend when trying to save money.

What stresses you out? For me, it's being double and triple-booked, and having to leive accorfding to accomodate other peoples' schedules. I also don't do well with people who are "energy vampires" and also narcissistic energy vampires at that. They love to tell you how in a hurry they are, and could you hurry up when you talk to them because they are SOOO busy. I have words for that, but this is a family blog.

Ah well; we suck it up. I guess since I'm on pet peeves, I'll touch on the harm reality shows have caused us. It is creating a big brother, it's OK to spy on people mentality. We equate clean with empty, and those who have anything are potential "hoarders." We are all about our "stuff," but chastise those who have bills or publically humliate people who are not pencil-thin, rich enough, style savvy enough, good enough singers, you name it. Individuality is bad, and you never know when Big Brother is watching.

Witch informers operated this way in the 17th century. We are a paradox; we stress diversity, but practice and in a passive/agressive way, encourage conformity.

For give me, I'm in a bad, bad mood.

On the plus side, Thanksgiving is two weeks away. I'm going to write poetry and further organize myself, which I do enjoy. I'm going to walk, and wrap Christmas presents, and maybe go out Black Friday just to observe and enjoy. I used to like doing that with my mom. We loved our road trips, and special little presents and surprises that we made. She made the greatest ornaments out of plastic cylindcrial pill bottles and hand-knitted doll purses. Even if we live in memory and dreams, the holidays can be ours, can be peaceful, can be good.

God speed to all veterans and soldiers; remember to fly the flag this Thursday.
