So one of my favourite ways to get blog ideas is to check and see what other people are writing about. Since I can't top Jo's announcement, and since I haven't made over any dressers like Kelly lately, I've decided to do what Rhonda did this week. Just a little ranting. I think it's going to be better for me than the people reading it!

Rant 1: Um, gossip kills me. I know I am a repeat offender of this little thing, but sometimes it’s the worst when it’s about you. I’m not saying I heard anything bad about me, ‘cause I didn’t. I did, however, hear something that really gets me sour this weekend tho, and I know I’d be extra mad if it was about me.
So lets say two people are talking and they are like “So and so and so and so have been married for ___many years and they don’t have kids. I wonder why not?” Um, please. First off, as if it is any of their business! Second off, maybe timing is not right for them. How’s about people stop planning other people’s lives and just live their own. Heck!

Rant 2: I realize that planning a route for snow plowing must be tough stuff, but c’mon. If the weather person says it might snow, maybe you should get ready. I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have the roads salted and plowed after it starts snowing. We all know how quickly it can come down and how road conditions change around here, so we need all the help we can get to make it safe. Oh, side rant: if it’s snowing, raining hard, below zero or foggy, drivers, please use caution. We’re not all idiots around here, but for those of you who are, please endanger your life somewhere else.

Rant 3: I don’t think you can call this a rant, but I suppose it is just a bunch of run on sentences put together about a common thing, so yea, a rant.
I love love love my family and friends. I love that they are so nice and awesome and caring and lovely. I love the way they make me smile and call just to see what’s up. I love family and friends that I know I can count on, who will celebrate happy moments in your life, and who will be there when I need a shoulder to cry on. I love having moments of one on one where you can tell and keep secrets, where you know they guard and value your opinions, and not judge. Oh, so many things I love about each family member and friend I have. So thanks to all of you. I just love you.

I suppose this is the end of my ranting for today. My eyes are buggy from the computer screen (I don’t think I got enough sleep last night). Thanks for tuning in, or maybe tuning out by now…haha.

dont you just love a good rant! I would have to agree with your rants! I feel the same way! I have to admit that I do gossip a bit, but I am trying to improve!

ps...totally still thinking about how badly i want your "new" coat!

Ranting is ALWAYS good...I do a lot of it at work since it's the cause of most of my ranting!! I agree on the gossip thing...I've only been married months and we have so many people asking us and others trying to start non existant rumors!! Anyway keep the blogging and the ranting's always good to vent...because a lot of the time I'm sure most people agree with you and just don't rant themselves!!!

LUJU said...

Ditto on rant #1! I get that a lot. Heck, I've been married for 4years, I'm mormon, and I live in UT. People probably think I have a disease that keeps me from chitlins. Good garbage!

Kristine & Davis said...

holy cow you guys have only been married a year and they are allready wondering why you dont have kids??? what the heck? As much as i dont want to gossip, i really want to know what two people said that ... ;) just kidding.

as much as i agree about people using caution when driving in the winter... some people use too much caution. like on my way to work yesterday there was this lady going like 25 km/hr down portland street.... seriously i know it was snowing but it wasnt THAT bad!!

I love to rant! People do need to stop wondering about kiddies...lots of people can't have kiddies and may not want it to be the topic of discussion. Oh well...I guess gossip is bound to happen.

Kristiane said...

I LOVE the ranting. In fact, I'm thinking of trying it. It's always good to get that stuff off your chest :)

Here's my rant! The other night (Friday into Saturday morning) there was a stinkin' HRM plow outside out house making all kinds of racket at 3am. I think there was about 1/4 inch of stupid snow on the ground! Well, then there's this morning...we have 3 inches on the streets of Bedford and NO SNOW PLOWS! What the...? Where are they all? I know they are busy but come on! That's all I had to say, so I added it to yours instead of doing my own! Sorry! By the long have you and Josh been married? Don't you think it's time to start thinking about a family? Really Julia! KIDDING!!!!! You can steal mine anytime, especially after Baby Boy is born, I'll need all the help I can get!

...Donny & Karlee... said...

Okay, you crack me up! I am with you on the snow plow thing though! They need to get it together a little!

JO said...

good idea, Sometimes I go weeks without posting because I can't think if anything to post about. I agree with you on the snow thing. I always wonder how people get to work in conditions like this!
