Newsweek article

Fabulous article showing how the bible supports gay marriage.

For the record, I have no problem with homosexuals, nor do I have a problem with them being happily married. What's the big deal? If you love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with them then why not get married? The sexuality part of it is what goes on in the bedroom, and that's really none of my business.

What's the big deal?

I really like my car, I don't see the point of changing it. Why get a new car if I like the one I'm driving? Now this is my own non-professional opinion, but I really think that if you can't pay cash for anything right now then you shouldn't get it, just with the way the economy is. I feel like my opinion doesn't help with the recession, because if you're not buying then your not helping. And on that car thing, with the big three manufacturers going bankrupt, I realize it hasn't happened yet, but still, I would be buying a car that may be very worthless next year. My current car, my Saturn, that I bought myself, and have had for 12 years, I love, but I guess since it's manufacturer is GM I need to look to the foreign models since they seem to be doing better. I don't know! Again, these are all my non-expert opinions, but I am under the impression of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I hate that expression by the way, but it does fit my current situation. I also hate researching the best vs. the worst and the middle and I would be happy with this one but not this one... really though, I don't get why I would get a car unless my current one was not drivable. I have been without car before, and this, even if it's an old car, is better than no car at all, and I am very grateful.

if only...

I really would give to everyone if I could. For Christmas I give to a few different charities usually, and this year we are scaling back on everything. I can give to the charity through our church and I am giving to one other, a family that lost everything in a fire. I really felt guilty yesterday when I got a call from some charity that wanted me to give money to help terminally ill kids have a good Christmas. I can't do it this year, sorry. I got off the phone and talked to my husband, and he helped me feel better about saying "no". That telemarketer didn't need to make me feel guilty like he did, I do give. Maybe I couldn't give to that place but I do give what I can. I hate making excuses for stuff like that...
