It's Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I walked in the door around midnight last night, there was a beautiful vase full of flowers on the table.  Bestie and Papoose #2 got them for me.  Is that the sweetest thing ever, or what?????

The house also smelled wonderful from the turkey pot pie Bestie had made for the family earlier that night.

Papoose #1 is coming home for the weekend.  I'm a happy momma.

We will all be going to get our Christmas tree on Saturday night.

Still don't know if the parade is a go or if they will cancel it.

As you all know, I adore all animals.  I especially love my horses.  But, I have to say in all honesty, the fact that they may/will be opening up slaughter houses to deal with unwanted horses is actually very incredibly good news for horses.  I would rather know that they are being put down and processed for useful purposes than to see them starve to death.  If there is a place people can take them if they can no longer care for them, or the horses are aged or for any other reason are unwanted, that will cut down on all horses suffering in the end.  As it is now, horses are slowly starving to death all over the place, they are neglected, they are having their brands cut off of their bodies and being turned loose to live or die in the middle of nowhere.....having all sunshine and daisy ideals about stopping horse slaughter and the bills that passed to support that, is the most cruel thing that has happened to the horse industry in decades.  Anyhow, that's my two cents.

Just because my friends and I can and will keep our animals till the day they die, doesn't mean everyone can or will.  We need somewhere for those poor beasts to be taken.  Think about it from a different perspective.

All of these people that keep killing their kids need to be tortured and killed.  No waste of taxpayer money evaluating, prosecuting and feeding them for the rest of their lives.  Mother fuckers need to be disposed of.

Papoose #2 has Saturday school from 8am to noon tomorrow for tardies she got from us not getting out of the house on time a few days a couple weeks ago.  Oops.  That shit needs to never happen again.  We are so naughty.

Although I believe that our government is a massively corrupt and greedy entity, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in the world, really.

Except maybe Australia.  And they won't have me permanently, to be sure.

I only slept a couple of hours last night, broken sleep, because my dumb ass had a cup of coffee last night, on top of the diet coke I had been drinking from lunch all the way through my drive home.  Dumb ass.

One of our mangers in training has an old pos cell phone.  One of the things the manager on duty has to do is send our hourly sales to all the other managers and owners.  Well, this particular fellow didn't have anything on his phone where he could group his contacts in order to send these group texts out to everyone, so he downloaded what he thought was an app to fix that.  What it ended up being was some sort of chat room type thing.  He starts messing with it a little after midnight the other night, and hilarity ensued.  He had dozens of people texting wtf back and forth to each other, people being woke up who had to be at work at 3am etc.  Nobody could figure out wth was going on and why all these texts were flying around.  The poor guy won't live that one down for awhile.

I am at a dead point on my desk at Job #1 right now.  In between having enough to do, because I'm waiting for things from other people in order to move forward.  I hate that.  I hate not being busy.

I wanna be in bed with a good book right now.

Have a good day peeps.


  1. It's so sad that animals suffer....but one does have to put it into perspective with all of the humans (ill-treated children, struggling elderly, Uganda, etc.) out there suffering daily. I've learned so much about the proper care of pets in having my own (holy hell...the food, the vets, the attention they need...the grooming...oy) over the years -- it's a commitment plain as rain. You don't just pick up a puppy 'cause it's cute. You're marrying the dog 'til he drops (which I have to remind Mr. Fussypants with regards to Ernie, his uber-nemesis). In driving my new country streets, I've been stunned at some of the sad, thin sick-looking horses....and I've wondered....I agree with you wholeheartedly on this issue.

    I flat out adore that Papoose #2. She is a walking Buoy of Kindness, Gentleness and Grace. I just want to hug her every time I see her.....=)

    I'm glad that Bestie is there to warm your spirit and look after you. A Home to regroup in is a beautiful thing.

  2. I agree with both you and Kathleen... when we take animals in to care for and make them domesticated pets, they become dependent on us for their well-being. Then when we can't or don't want to care for them any longer, they are unable to survive on their own. That wild instinct has become tamed and they are at a loss without their humans.

    Very sad.... but you are right- it is better to humanely put them down than to turn them out to starve, suffer, die... makes me sick to see that.

    So glad the week-end is here! Rainy nice week-end! Of course I'm a dumb arse that signed up for OT on Saturday - WTF was I thinking?????
