Coffee is Kicking Some Sense Into Me

I really don't know where my dislike of Halloween started , I used to dress up as a kid and loved it.My wife reminded me that I dressed up in the early days of our relationship as well. I do secretly enjoy watching the kids get ready for Halloween, but what bothers me is the adults dressing up. I really don't know why.

Whatever the reason , I was reminded by something I tell my kids all the time. Sometimes in life you you have to do things that you don't want to do. There is no sense complaining about it , because complaining about it only makes it worse for you and the people around you.So I will bundle up tonight and  take my kids trick or treating and I will most likely enjoy it .

This is not a Scrooge on Christmas morning moment, I am not waking up this morning after 3 ghosts visited me last night and now will keep the spirit of Halloween in my heart. I still don't like it. It is not about me though. I look into my kids eyes and see the excitement and it reminds me of the excitement that I felt long ago for this holiday .

Everyone please have a safe and Happy Halloween!

My Thoughts as I drink my first cup of Coffee

It is Saturday morning and I have the house to myself today. There is plenty of things to do to keep me occupied though. Before I start my chores it is very important that I drink my coffee , this is to loosen the cobwebs from last night as the cobwebs are disappearing these thoughts came out.

  1. I find it interesting that people don't understand that the selfish decisions they make can really affect the people that they care about,their position in life and could really impact their future . I understand that people can be unhappy in their current situations and need to change that , but sometimes the need to change their situation can result in a snap decision that can make your situation worse. I obviously have a situation in mind , I pray that whatever damage has been done will be minimal and easily fixed.
  2. I do like Carl Palidino, but not sold on him as Governor. Even though I share in many of his thoughts that doesn't mean that I believe that he will make a good leader. To me his character is in question, I can't get out of my mind the e-mails he sent using racial slurs ,whether it was a private e-mail or not it shows poor judgment. This does not mean I will be voting for Andrew Cuomo though, I may have to write someone in.
  3. I wonder if the dropping ratings for Soap Operas can be blamed on Facebook. I think that Facebook and social sites like it is a wonderful place to connect and re-connect with friends and family. It is also a place where people air out their frustrations as well, which you have every right to do so. But the conflicts that are posted on the site can provide the same ,if not better drama than Days of Our Lives. It is your profile , do what you want with it.
That's it for today , got to clean my house ,mow the lawn . If I get that done , then I won't feel so bad about the nap I am going to take later!
