THE question

What's the one question everybody that you mean after you've entered high school asks you? The one that you ask yourself 20 times a day, nearing the end of your junior year in high school?  Ya know, the question that you hate others answering with such confidence and you have no idea..


I'm almost 22 years old and I've had many answers to this question- being a teacher went to being a photographer to being an ag. teacher to being a dental hygienist to being an Air Force wife to being a dental assistant to- ERRCH! Stop right there. You really don't have a choice but to stop right there... because I don't know what I want to do.

The whole time I was a cashier Jeremy pushed me to find a better job. One that I don't come home and complain about and one that pays better. So I found one, and now he's "encouraging" me to go to school and get a degree in something. I honestly have no idea!! I like the receptionist setting.. it's a happy place behind a desk.
I've never taken accounting... I've been thinking about doing that..
Or I could be a... -and that's where I get stuck. I don't have any ideas!
Jeremy thinks I should be a real estate agent. :/  No thanks. I'd rather not. It just doesn't sound like fun. An interior decorator sounds like more fun!!! (You wouldn't know it looking at my house!)
I'm a very sympathetic person, I would love to do something that helps people!

If anyone has any ideas, please share them! I'm just sure that I'm thinking inside the box and not looking at all of my options!

I've always said "I'm not trying to conquer the world, but I want you to believe that I'm trying"

Have I ever confessed my unmistakable hate for putting laundry away? I don't hate folding it, I do that as I take it out of the dryer. I must really dislike putting it away though...

As I take shirts out of the dryer I lay them flat because it's silly to fold a shirt just to go put it on a hanger (eventually). That's TWO piles of shirts laid flat and TWO laundry baskets full of pants, shorts, jeans, all the underwear we own and socks...
I'm going to put an add out there- $10 to put my laundry away!!  That's just a joke {for now}

On this note I read a blog the other day about moms hiring someone to do their house cleaning. They asked for my opinion so I gave it... If you hire someone once or twice a month just to get you caught up seems perfectly logical!

That's all I said but I have more to say- if you are a stay at home mom.. you shouldn't get too far behind. I'm not saying they don't do anything because I know it's just the same as working 40 hours at a paid job. But there are nap times and quiet times. As someone who has just started her 1st 40 hour job... I can't imagine having kids and working 40 hours!! There is barely time to do anything after you get home and get through dinner... But I still can't wait to have kids :)
KUDOS to ALL moms!!

I believe

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has with GOD , the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .
Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student : Absolutely, sir.... See More
Professor : Is GOD Good ?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student : Yes.
Professor :A0 My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm? (Student was silent )
Professor : You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good? Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good ?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from ?
Student : From . . . GOD . . .
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct? Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil ? (Student did not answer)
Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who Created them ? (Student had no answer)
Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son . . . Have you ever Seen GOD ?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD ?
Student : No , sir.
Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD , Tasted your GOD , Smelt your GOD ? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still Believe in HIM ?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith .
Professor : Yes, Faith . And that is the Problem Science has.
Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )
Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No HĂȘt, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold. Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.
(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )
Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness? Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . . But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, where you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor : So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student : Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed ? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD . You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can';t even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing. Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )
Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor, Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The Class was in Uproar )
Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?
(The Class broke out into Laughter )
Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir? (The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable) Professor : I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH . That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.

That student was Albert Einstein!!
