Three things that are not connected to each other in any way that are really bugging me this week...
1) Our electric bill. The company here charges us an additional fee of $27 a month simply for supplying electricity. The wattage, use or location is irrelevant, we just get the charge. In our last home, which was older and bigger, sometimes our entire bill wasn't even $27. Get me out of here.
2) Yesterday I spent over an hour compiling a grocery list and clipping coupons. My cart was filled last night with off-brand products and $20 worth of coupons in order to feed our family fruit, vegetables and milk everyday. The family in front of me bought ELEVEN steaks (I counted) and a case of coke...with food stamps. I'm not going to touch the politics of this, but let's just say that I couldn't tell you the last time I bought steak...
3) Creepy quote from a Christian Birth and Labor book:
"You are at a most vulnerable time for spoiling your mind, heart and soul. Most often a women has succumbed to one of Satan's lies transmitted by the culture or the doctor. This is a little like Eve eating the forbidden fruit. It starts with just one intervention like going into the hospital for an induction, that is not God's timing. You have already taken your birth out of God's hands and design and put it into man's and Satan's."
Seriously? Give me a break.
Hoping to post something POSITIVE later today, now that I have this off my chest!
