Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, y'all. I didn't get to go trick or treating with Bubba....I'm at the radio station. But I've been told he had a fantastic time down with my mom, and W gave out candy for a while at her house. Then Bubba gave out candy, and after having a treat from his stash, he fell asleep on the couch snuggling with my dad. How awesome is that?

Life is about the same. W still miserable, he hurts so bad all of the time. I see him going further and further downhill and it scares me. Still haven't gotten any settlement paperwork from workers comp but it's supposed to be in the works. We started the process for filing for disability, but haven't got anything finished yet. W is dragging his feet, but we have to get it in so we can get the process going, since they always deny, then we have to appeal, then wait after the second denial for a hearing. Then hopefully we win the hearing and can start getting the disability. Meanwhile, we have to keep our heads about water the whole time. Blah.

Not much else going on. Since I don't think W ever reads this, I can say that the in-laws are coming for a surprise visit next weekend for Bubba's birthday. My child will be FIVE YEARS OLD!!!!! Holy hell how did that happen?

We have a date night tomorrow night, so Bubba is sleeping over at G-ma's tonite and tomorrow. W and I are going to see Larry the Cable Guy, courtesy of the radio station. No meet and greet tho, which I'm a little bummed about. JW, the boss, is going to try to get Bubba's tshirt signed, which will be cool. Haven't run out of room on it yet, but it is starting to fill up.

K, I'm gonna sign off. Got a quarter plus left of this damn football game, then I can go to the grocery store. Planning on doing some heavy cleaning tomorrow, in advance of the inlaw invasion, which I can't tell W about, just have to pretend it's overdue (which it really really is.) Then our big night out. Got a smashing outfit for it, courtesy of Carmen at the office. She's been giving me a bunch of clothes she doesn't wear anymore, which is awesome, she has great taste in clothes and they all fit me well, too.

I scored a pair of brown dress boots at the mall today, for twenty bucks. And since I still had a gift card to the mall, I didn't technically spend any money! Woo!

Happy Haunting, catch ya later.

Ho Hum

Hey y'all. How are you doing? About the same here. Hasn't been much to talk about so I've kinda just avoided this place. Still reading every body, commenting here and there, but I'm just lying low I guess.

W's back is still bad.....waiting on settlement paperwork from worker's comp because they say there's nothing else they can do. We started to process for filing for disability, which is going to be long, drawn out and not easy. I know they'll deny him, which we'll then appeal, and then they'll deny again and we'll have to get a hearing which takes forever to get.

Bubba still isn't in preschool. I've heard they are working on the waiting list and getting kids in, but so far, no word for him. He has until March.

I've been working way too much. Between the office and the extra shifts I'm pulling at the station, it seems like that is all I do. Then of course I have endless amounts of chores at home.

We are still addicted to the Wii. Bubba has so much fun with it and honestly, I do too. We love to do the fitness challenge every day and see how our age changes. I also got W and Bubba both hooked on Monopoly on Pogo. Such a fun filled life we lead....playing video games and watching TV is pretty much what we do at home.

Ok, the office work all piled up is calling to me, I just don't wanna answer it (but I have to.) Hope to hear from y'all.

Happy Halloween, since I don't know if I'll be back by then. Bubba will be going to G-ma's with W because I'll be working at the station.

Something NOT written by me.

I swiped this from one of my Yahoo Groups. No clue the real author, and I've put the link to the yahoo group post below....this really makes you think. I know it would never happen, but wouldn't it be nice? Again, I'm not big into politics but this really makes sense. And I cannot wait for all the damn ads to be done with on the radio and tv for this election. Blah

....this was sent to me by a creative mind that is a single parent struggling not to go into foreclosure. I thought that it had its merits so I'm passing it on; If nothing it would give the big money people that put us in this mess something to PONDER; while we the average citizen can only wonder WHY? Perhaps it's time to take back OUR AMERICA!!!.

To All My Friends Who Think "Outside the Box"....I'm against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG.Instead, I'm in favor of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a We Deserve It Dividend.

To make the math simple, let's assume there are 200,000,000 bonafide U.S. Citizens 18+.Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 and up..So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon that equals $425,000.00.My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a We Deserve It Dividend.

Of course, it would NOT be tax free. So let's assume a tax rate of 30%.Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes. That sends $25,500,000,0 00 right back to Uncle Sam.But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket. A Husband and wife has $595,000.00.What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family?

Pay off your mortgage - housing crisis solved.
Repay college loans - what a great boost to new grads
Put away money for college - it'll be there
Save in a bank - create money to loan to entrepreneurs.
Buy a new car - create jobs
Invest in the market - capital drives growth
Pay for your parent's medical insurance - health care improves
Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean - or else
Reset the Welfare and Medicare/Medicaid Systems to weed out the fraud.

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back, as well as those that lost everything in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas after the hurricanes. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.If we're going to re-distribute wealth let's really do it...instead of trickling out a puny $1000.00 ( "vote buy" ) economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!As for AIG - liquidate it.Sell off its parts.Let American General go back to being American General. Sell off the real estate.Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.Here's my rationale. We deserve it and AIG doesn't.Sure it's a crazy idea but it is extremely LOGICAL!How do you spell Economic Boom? Talk about an American moral booster! This plan is about all Americans and is not based on race, gender, or socio-economic status.I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion We Deserve It Dividend more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC.And remember, The Family plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.Ahhh...I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

Kindest personal regards, A Creative Guy & Citizen.Perhaps a few more creative minds in Washington and a few managers who can manage would serve the American people from getting into such direPositions. Make your vote count in placing some new blood in Congress.Time to turn over the controlling party politicians and elect those thatCan act in the interest of all Americans. Thought this is a creativeIdea to help Americans."
