It’s my birthday today. I’m dangerously close to 40, and it’s starting to stress me out a little. Yesterday, the power went out for about five hours, the temp in our house got down into the high 50’s, and we had to wear robes over our clothes. One of my kids woke me up a little too early this morning to tell me about something he had accomplished on Lego Star Wars, so that was frustrating. Our minivan had to get towed into the shop this morning, and our other car is driving like a diesel. It’s not a diesel. If the van doesn’t get fixed in time, the kids will have to ride the bus to school, and that makes them a little crazier when they get home. Hopefully we’ll get our tax returns back soon so we don’t have to put the repairs on our credit card. Meanwhile, in Syria….
Please spend some time looking at this picture…. What you are seeing here are people from a Palestinian camp called Yarmouk that has been besieged in Syria for almost a year. There is no food. They are lining up to receive food supplies from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.
Also, it pissed me off when John Travolta mispronounced Idina Menzel’s name the other day on The Oscars.
