Since I'm feeling pretty pissy anyway, I might as well share some of what has been bothering me other than the usual, endless "momma, momma, momma" that bombards me all freakin' day long, every day. Let me add the requisite disclaimer here about how much I love my children, my family, my life, so on and so forth: I love my children, my family, my life, and so on and so forth. Any words I write here are no indication of the health of my homelife. Okay, now, let's get down to the nitty gritty.
I'm so tired. Tired of never getting to finish things I start. I'm tired of criticism. I'm tired of waiting for other people to do what they need to do before I can do what I need to do.
I know that my life is very common and not particularly interesting to someone whose life is spent focusing only on his/her needs, wants, and interests. But people should never make the mistake of thinking that "common" is inferior in quality or importance. If there is a hierarchy to life as the scientists have told us, then they should also remember that the base or bottom of the hierarchy is that which supports all the rest. We 'lowly' and 'common' types are the ones who make it possible for other, more 'influential' types to do whatever they do that they think is so all-important. Those 'on top' should NEVER believe that they are better than those that hold them up. Nor should they ever forget that they can't be on top without all of that support, seen and unseen. You cannot build on an unstable foundation. And if you neglect your foundation it will deteriorate and fail eventually. This is true for buildings as well as relationships and societies.
None of this is original or all that important to say, but this is my little place to say whatever the hell I want to say.
