All by Myself...rantings of a railroaders wife!!!

I feel like a sad country song in the making. I am visualizing this image of Renee Z. in Bridget Jones Diary singing "All by Myself".

Now I know how the wives of military families feel when they have to send their husbands off for months at a time.

Hard times are upon us due to the powers that be who have decided to continue making the rich richer while middle class America falls to the wayside. Hey, I have an idea...let's bail out the every day American, pay off existing is then put back into the banks, banks can lend again once the mortgage debts are covered, and the American people can feel free to start spending again. The economy will then get the boost it needs and production and distribution will be back in action allowing everyone to keep their jobs. Instead, money is (as usual) dispersed at the top and expected to trickle down. Ha, what a farse!!!!! Do you really think the rich are going to spread the wealth???!!!!!! Lord forbid that they be without their limos or jets. In the meantime families are losing, homes, health insurance, and self respect!!!!! Because big business has made their cutbacks, my mother has lost her job and my husband is being forced to work out of state, away from his home and kids, just to make ends meet. How much longer do the American people have to hold on before life as they know it is changed forever?

Ok, now that I got that out of my system!!!!! Seriously, I am doing good. Making the best of a bad situation (as always) and looking for that light at the end of the tunnel. (That's a southern thing by the way...we tend to throw out little slogans to make light of a dreary conversation.)

Rain, popcorn, and a good movie...Ahhhhhh

Ok, so I have a confession to make...I have recently been turned on to a new author. If you have read my previous posts you would know that I looooove sappy, oooeeey, goooeeey love stories. I love romance comedies, novels, whatever gets the insides stirring. Now, this author is not new to the romance novel community but new to me. Her name is Nora Roberts. Yes I know, you can't believe I have never read a Nora Roberts book!!!! Sad, but true. The reason for this new found interest is the movies I have been watching on Lifetime.

Add rain, popcorn and a comfy blanket...viola, perfect bliss!!!! I can't wait to get started on the books. I will be lining up my summer reading list very soon.

I've worked on a few new scrappy projects. A good challenge always gets me motivated. Here are a few...
