So, since I don't have tons of pics to edit, I had to find another way to spend hours on the computer. I'd dabbled in pinterest before, but now that I finally got my invite...wow. Wowzers. Amazing clothes. Fabulous recipes. Inspirational organization pics. And quotes. Hundreds and hundred and hundreds of quotes.
It's bad ya'll. Add that to the fact that netflix FINALLY streams to Guam...it's not looking good. This is what happens when I'm alone in this great big house for five months with little to no adult interaction! I'm like one of those hermit recluse teenage guys with terrible acne who grow up to live in their mom's basement and make people call them Warlock. Ugh.
Here are just a tiny few of the pins I found today. It's bad ya'll. Have I mentioned that?
This first one is a little political, I guess, which isn't really me, but I thought it sort of brought up a point that some people seem to forget.
|I do not know anyone who has had to deal with this unspeakable horror. I'm not trying to make light of this situation, or offend anyone. Except, of course, rapists. I just think that people need to realize this.|
And yes, while I did read the Twilight books, I thought they were light, fluffy, silly things to pass my time. I thought Bella stands for everything that is wrong about what society teaches girls nowadays. I cannot STAND it when people talk about Twilight compared to Harry Potter. They are not even on the same planet. I'm trying to find some eloquent way to put it, but I can't come up with anything. It's like comparing a piece of sand to the most delicious, exquisite, sweetest, creamiest, best wedding cake that you've ever eaten in your entire life? It's just not even something worth comparing. Ugh.
Might have this printed and framed :)
|Shoulda put my foot down and named Warren Westley.|
|Sorry. I just can't get enough of HP fans making fun of Twilight. HP fans just GET me.|
Okay, fine. I'm a little obsessed. A lot. But I truly love those books. I really do. They really and truly are a defining part of my life. And I think I've finally convinced my husband to read them!!! HIP HIP HOORAY!!!
And wanna know what sort of sucks? All these fun quotes and pics on pinterest about HP, every time I come across one about it being over, or shaping someone's life, or something gay like that...I cry. I actually cry. UGH!!!
Which reminds me, I've been getting so much support and loving emails and comments about Nick being gone for MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS, and I just wanted to say that I really appreciate everything. The single most important, helpful thing that you can do for me is to pray. Pray specifically, and use my name. Prayer is the most powerful tool we have. If you're not used to praying, or you feel silly praying for someone you've never met, just pray something along the lines of "God, please help my friend Jennifer remember that your grace is suffiencent for her. Remind her that all she has ever or will ever need, your hand has and will provide." It's easy. And it will help me. It really will.
And, don't forget that I'm certainly not the only one going through rough times. Yes, there are quite a few military guys (and women, ugh) who find ways to weasel their way out of deployments, to unload their responsibility onto someone else, to force others to pick up the slack. But for every asshole out there not doing his part, there's dozens more who ARE. And they've left their wives (and husbands) at home to raise their children and keep their houses from being condemned by the health department. I don't have it any harder than any other military wife (or husband) out there. Except for the ones married to the weasels. So while I appreciate your thoughts and prayers from the bottom of my heart, I just want to make sure you don't think I'm unique. My situation is NOT unique. There are tons of us. So maybe say a prayer for all the wives (and husbands) who are feeling lonely tonight.
And then say an extra one for me. Because I really do need it.
PS- If you want to start pinterst, leave a comment with your email, then set aside approximately nine hours of your day. Daily. I'll invite you and you can get hooked too.
Oh shoot, I forgot one! I gotta verify if SK really said this though, because it doesn't sound like him. I might be being mislead. Although, if they put it on the internet, it's gotta be true...
