wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.

annoyance...and relief

As I was reading my issue of In Touch magazine tonight (no I don't subscribe, but occasionally, when I go to the grocery store, I pick up a copy of some trash magazine like that- it's a guilty pleasure of mine that I can't justify ever...bc it's trash. and it's a waste of money.  but i did it anyway) I got so ridiculously annoyed.  I am sorta in the middle of the magazine right now, well not ME personally, but that's where I'm reading.   I would never be in this particular article-- people who are "too skinny."  Props to hollywood for not just bashing celebs that are "too fat"...but really-- yes, some of these people ARE too skinny-- but REALLY here's the deal-- in the margins, BOTH pages, the ad that was showing was for SLIM QUIK.  You want to tell us that this is how a woman should look/shouldnt look/whatever, then you want to be "concerned" for these girls for being too skinny, but you want to shoot a message that we need to be skinnier by putting that ad on THAT page?  seriously?  there's no way that was coincidence.  that was just STUPID. 

enough of that.

on to the relief part of my blog-

heartforhaiti.tv
you can donate here for haiti relief if you would like.  you can also purchase incredibly cute tshirts, and every penny of the proceeds of those sales go towards haiti relief.  they have men's, children's, and women's-- more than one style, and more than one color in some styles.  they aren't expensive, and really...who cares if they were?  the money's going to haiti.  haiti...haiti is poor.  and haiti needs our help.  you can do it.  come on people now...smile on your brother...everybody get together... :) enough.  but really- you SO can do it!

goodnight! crying baby needs his mama.

Hey Alisha! I totally agree about the ads. I was reading an Associated Comment article that a friend of mine wrote which was about a Christian issue and going to Heaven, when an ad popped up about another book, or movie, (it's been a couple of months ago and I've slept since then, but I remember that ad). Anyway, it was about "Burning in Hell" flames shooting up the whole works! Needless to say, I was shocked. I wrote a comment to the author of the article, stating how I enjoyed her article but AC should have had better taste in placing their ads. I understand that they do post "related" articles as advertisements, but that to me was very Distasteful. Anyway, I totally agree with you.

Love & Prayer,

PJ
