That's my sad face. I took that photo with a little video cam while Kevin was overseas in Baghdad a couple of years ago and emailed it to him. I'm feeling pretty shabby today, so I won't keep you long.
I am sorry for being so depressing, guys... I really am. Someone sent me this video today and it really set me off on the wrong note. Kevin called me a 'worry-wart' before he left for work today. I cry for humanity quite often. He knows me well. The video is about biogenetic engineering and genetically altered food. If you think you aren't interested enough to watch it, I would urge you to think again. EVERYONE needs to see this video. To see the video, click the link above or under the title of this post. It just reminded me of how short our time here is... and how so many people are going to miss the boat. That, my friend, is something worth crying about.
I am in a bit of a funk. Even wanna-be Texas cowgirls get the blues. We took a 'mommy is too sad to do school' day off today and cuddled while we watched a video about Davey Crockett, played educational software, cleaned house, ate some genetically altered salad and 'refined' frozen pizza (heated in the oven, of course), and read library books. I am about to crawl into bed and grade papers until my hubby gets home after midnight. If I don't have anything more exciting to blog tomorrow, I may just start the "30 Days of Nothing" and take a hiatus for a while.
On a positive note, Chipotle's Mojo Mama emailed me and said she was sending me a T-shirt for being such a loyal fan. I am going to "spread the burrito love" around Arkansas (free advertizing) and get them ready to be taken over by Chipotle's rockin' food in the future. She said one day, they may build a Chipotle here... but ... by then,... I'll probably be munching on burrito bols in the Lone Star State. I can only go so long without my 'potle. I say, "You go girl! 'If you build it, they will come'."
Pray for my sad, pathetic self if you think about me. And if you don't think about me... don't. Not even the Milano cookies made me smile today... all 8 of them! I can't wait to see my husband's smiling face when he comes home from work. There's nothing like being in his arms when I'm down in the dumps.
