Same Old Same Old

Just checked my Twitter and discovered my Progressive Friends bitching about Pres. Obama's decision to allow off shore drilling for oil, keep GITMO open for a few more months and our involvement in Libya in an attempt to establish a no fly zone. Imagine their surprise, since they think they're in tune with what America wants, when they read the latest Politicususa blog. It appears that 67 to 69 percent of Americans agree with those three decisions. As a matter of fact, according to a poll in the Wall St. Journal, where Mr. Easley gets his numbers for that post, the only decision of Pres Obama's last 5 decisions they don't agree with is staying in Afghanistan. 

As the blog pointed out, these favorable figures a year away from an election don't add up to "one term president" as the Progressives and the GOP seem to believe. You can read the post here if you'd like:


Now that I'm all caught up with the news about how badly Pres. Obama is handling things, I'd like to turn my attention to more important things.

1. Bella's kitty came HOME!!!! Three cheers for King Fuzz. Hip, hip, hooray! (Say it two more times please).

2. Organic turkey breast lunch meat at $1 an ounce tastes like...wait for it...turkey breast lunch meat. About the same flavor as Sara Lee, which I'm told isn't as good. Apparently I have fried taste buds or something. Even the cat wasn't interested and he LOVES turkey. Whoo Hoo! Look at all the money I'll save by NOT buying it again.

3. If I plan on getting my Spring Cleaning done before Easter, I'm going to have to start it this weekend. I am so not looking forward to removing everything from the kitchen cupboards and washing everything down. I absolutely hate washing windows. However, I really, really love having a spanking clean home at Easter time. Ok, the truth is, I'd love to have it that way all the time, I just don't really, really love doing it.

4. We are expecting temperatures to finally reach the 70's by this weekend. I am washing my Spring coat as we speak. I should say I am washing the Spring coat that has hung in my closet for the last 3 years because it wouldn't fit on my body. IT FITS! YAY ME! I am accepting all offers for a pat on the back since I'm going to have to save my strength for the Spring Cleaning. *sigh*

5. Since the doctor doesn't want her patients pigging out on ham due to the preservatives and salt involved, we are having turkey breast without the Thanksgiving trimmings this Easter. I am on the hunt for some interesting veggie side dishes to make up for the lack of stuffing and such. I am having cranberry sauce because Hubby won't do without it, and mashed taters and gravy of course. Everything else is going to be different...somehow. Haven't figured it out yet, but I'm working on it.


  1. Sherry:

    Congratulations! So now that your Spring coat fits, you are entitled to boast a little. Now, if I can get my waist measurement reduced to the point where I can wear those new slacks I bought a couple of years ago, I will also feel entitled to boast a bit. :)

  2. Sherry,
    Over here in the Land of Backward Weather where we promote thermal underwear as a fashion trend, we seem to have bypassed autumn in favor of getting straight into winter. Unfortunately, in the eyes of Mrs. O, this being cooped up-edness simply allows more time for spring cleaning - and never mind any seasonal statute of limitations.

  3. Whit,

    Thanks for the pat on the back. Total loss to date...26 pounds and counting. I don't know if this will help you much, but all I'm doing is loading my plate with veggies and whole grain. Eating more fruit and cutting down on meat, dairy and sweets. I eat pretty much everything unless it comes in a can.

  4. Mr. O,

    This cleaning thing is a bit tricky. For you, Spring Cleaning happens when it's Fall here. What you are experiencing now is Fall Cleaning, which happens there when it's Spring Cleaning time here. It's a lot of work, regardless of the season. I'm so not looking forward to starting it tomorrow. It's making me tired just thinking about it.

  5. I'm to pissed off at all the politicians to think!

    Is it Friday? Or Thanksgiving?


  6. Sherry, did you know there are approx 317 ways to prepare spam? let's get all the recipes and forward them to DC.....

  7. ice,

    It's Friday, and I'm still going to eat turkey breast for Easter Sunday Dinner. I'll leave the Hams in Washington DC. LOL

  8. TAB,

    Lets just send them the Spam. With all that hot air, they ought to be able to figure out what to do with it themselves. lol

  9. I love Spam...shhhhhh, don't tell Tab. Yes, kitty came home, happy us...oh phew...i smell the faint odor of potty...ah, time to clean the litterbox. ugh.

  10. Bella,

    Yup, the downside of house kitties is the litterbox. I don't like spam, and that's good since it's not extremely nutritious. LOL
