Sometime before Thanksgiving I went AWOL. Yes, it’s me and yes, I used to post on this blog. I can’t believe it’s been over 2 weeks since I wrote anything. I left my loyal readers probably shaking their heads and wondering if I had actually gone off the deep end. Yet, the very opposite is true. I have actually been enjoying life even with all that horrible teething going on. I have realized my baby is about to become a little boy. He is now 8 months old. Time has went by too fast. So, I am slowing down and watching it go by now. 

I have also enjoyed not having that irrational urge to publish a new post every single waking second. It’s sorta like coming off a nasty drug addiction. Now, that’s not to say I won’t be posting anymore. It simply means, I am taking a break from the amount of posts I will be publishing. I hope all of you that do read my blog on a daily (scratch that) now monthly basis, will stick around because you never know when I might get bored with the real world again or decide to post something interesting.

I never thought I would see gas go back to pre 2000 prices, but atlas it has. I took this picture last night on my drive home. Funny thing is, C. Beth has a post with a gas price picture, too. (She didn’t go where I’m about to go though…) In my opinion, this has needed to happen for awhile, better yet we need to come up with some alternatives- and, as much happiness as this brings me as it does you…it has MANY political implications. I’m not going to get into exactly why I think gas has micraculously went down all.of.a.sudden. I do think it’s safe to say that I’m pretty sure it has something to do with that guy leaving office in January. Which, if I think about it a bit more…why exactly couldn’t that have been done sooner?

I’m going to go out on a limb here, (even though I’m definitely not going to get into why prices have dropped) remember when those naysayers who said the housing market was too good to be true and pointed to a global meltdown about a year or two ago and NO ONE listened.

I know many of you probably don’t agree with my political outlook, so as I continue, you may want to LOOK AWAY…yeah, somewhere over there. Again, I am NOT going to go into why I think gas has dropped. (I’m just giving you some fuel to feed the fire, so to speak. No pun intended.)

With that said- I feel oil was definitely the reason we went into Iraq and if you can’t see that, well, obviously you aren’t reading this. Let’s travel back to when the U.S. was about to invade Iraq. Now, do you recall the burning of Iraq oil fields by it’s own people? Ok, so think how high gas prices have climbed in the last 8 years. Ok, I hope you have that mental image. Hold it there. Then take those implications and think about how oil demands have dropped this summer, the era of a president is ending and that the economy is shit- Whatcha got? You bet ya bottom dollar- some pockets are lined and overflowing about now. So, why wouldn’t you drop the price after making yourself super rich?

Discussion? Won’t you feed the fire, too?

I wanted to share how badly I wish RIGHT NOW that we LIVED in Virginia AGAIN.

I want to vote in a SWING STATE, damnit!

So for all you undecided voters or voters thinking that this race is already over and thinking that you need not vote, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GET out your vote, especially if you live in Virginia.

I think I might cry if I knew you didn’t.

*Song title is by Leigh Nash (It’s a beautiful song, if you’ve never heard it click here and you can.)

On a softer note; Bryan, Garrett and I headed to the beach Monday afternoon and enjoyed the view. It was a beautiful day and we rivaled in being a family. We also appreciated our blessings of being a family, living at the beach and simply to be alive and able to experience such an Ocean Size Love!

To capture the day, we of course took some wonderful pictures. I thought I would share them.
