7 Quick Takes Volume.7

Sharing is caring!

I am officially 32! I had a birthday yesterday which was up there on the *crappy list* because everyone in my house including myself had some sort of stomach virus…good times!
My awesome neighbor made me this amazing key lime pie for my birthday of course I am feeling a million times better and celebrated with it this morning for breakfast…don’t judge!

The hub and I have a costume party to go to tonight. If no kids are puking we shall be there. I will be a cute witch not sure what my husband is going to be yet..(he’s having issues with his costume)
As you might imagine I have a God given name…not Conservamom but Elia. Well I was actually named after my aunt Elia and my grandmother Elia. On Tuesday October 11th was the 34th anniversary of my Aunt Elia’s Death (she passed away at 24) and my grandmother’s 2nd anniversary of her death on Wednesday October 12th. Now it’s not looking so good for me on October 13th,lol luckily it’s my Birthday that day….let’s keep it that way God!! Any who my aunt gave sent me this beautiful picture of my grandmother holding me when I was about a year old with my aunt Elia’s picture in the background. I found it fitting that this would be the perfect picture for the week 🙂

So as some of you know i’ve been training for a 5k. I got this picture the other day from a friend and couldn’t help thinking this was the perfect visual of me running!!lol
I had a good argument with a friend yesterday on the whole occupy wall street dopes. The thing that set it off was this picture. What do y’all think? In my opinion I think this kid hit nail on the head.

In honor of tonight’s party I figured I’d kick it back to the old school with one of my old Halloween costumes. Enjoy!!

    Wow. You sound angry but like the people of OWS you are obviously directing your anger at the WRONG people.
    1.Yes I have had the same issues as you. For your information I have a child with a heart condition that until recently would not get covered by ANY insurance carrier and we had to pay OUT OF POCKET for quite a few of his test/procedures etc. So yes I have been where you are at.

    Elizabeth, I have tried and tried to read and understand what they are trying to get at but it's all a mess on OWS. From the information they keep putting out basically they want to due away with capitalism because it's failed us and they want to blame Big corporation/big business. Bottom line capitalism hasn't failed our government isn't really being responsible with our money.

    The kid in the picture is not in the situation of most of the "dopes" in Occupy Wall Street (which I support 100%). The vast majority are people who lost their houses when the sub-prime bubble burst, who were laid off and then diagnosed with serious medical conditions even though they no longer had medical insurance to pay for it, and kids who dropped out of college to help their

    I like the OWS picture–I think it makes a great point. I try very hard to listen to and understand other positions, even when I disagree, but I'm kind of stumped by this movement. What, precisely, is its purpose? On a lighter note, I love the picture in #5–I feel that way even when I'm not actually running (which I mainly am not!).

    Glad you are feeling better! My 2 year old had some flu thing that thank goodness, only lasted all day yesterday. (puke and other end too and only wanting mama to hold her) I got nothing done, but she is better. And if it were possible, I love her more.

    Love the picture of your grandma and auntie. Elia is a beautiful name and even more special to named after such special people.

    I think I made my point and I think my friend understood and agreed but she's blinded by her feelings on the matter and feels someone needs to pay. 🙁 It's sad.

    I love the Occupy Wall Street picture! My college debt is killing me. I wish I made better decisions – starting to save early seems like a good one. I certainly don't blame wall street for my problems. What a well written piece. :o) Did you win your argument?
