- Super Z and the Devil
I talked to Mrs. Lee, Super Z’s teacher, a couple of weeks ago. She assured me that there has been no talk of the devil at his preschool. She says that they tell bible stories about Noah, Jonah, Jesus and such, but they never talk about the devil or Hell. I was very glad to hear that.
Of course, that left me stumped. I have no idea where he was getting his ideas. It had to be a seed that was planted somewhere. I have been looking at everyone that he talks to a little more closely.
The good news is that he seems to have gotten over it. He hasn’t woken up with nightmares in weeks and his questions these days are more likely to be about ducks and big school than the devil.
- My bank account drama
My money is back. My life savings has been returned to me. How sad is that…$874 is my life savings? I have my new debit card and have learned to fear ordering on the Internet.
- My Job
My boss/friend, Leigh is out on maternity leave and I am about ready to take a flying leap out of my window.
- The glass ceiling
Much to my surprise, it does exist. There are certain men at my job that have a problem respecting women. They seem to think that a woman isn’t worth listening to, unless she is an attorney, a department director, or their boss. That is pretty sad to me. I have worked with these men for years. My good ideas have been pretty consistent and important, if you ask me. Why is it like pulling teeth to get them to listen?
- Religion and politics
I have tried desperately to write several blog entries lately regarding both religion and politics. It has been very surprising how difficult this is for me. I have been hard wired somehow to not feel comfortable expressing my beliefs. How sad is that? I mean, I know what I believe…and I believe it rather strongly. But when it comes to sharing it with you guys (the world) it is just SO HARD. Why do you think this is?
Do you think it has anything to do with me growing up in the south? I am here to tell you that the close-mindedness thing is not just a bad wrap. The majority of southerners (not all, just most) tend to be very close- minded. There is only one way to think about things. And I assure you, I don’t think about ANYTHING the RIGHT way.
How do I get over this? Do I really want to? Why does this upset me so much?
