 Beach vacation – SociallyAwkward style!

Okay so this didn’t *really* happen. (And, as much as we looove our fur babies, vacation time means the kids stay at home with a sitter while we frolic and recharge.) But, we are both huge beach bums. We do a yearly trek down to the Emerald Coast to soak up some sun (well – him more than me). Anyone else just love the sound of the ocean? The feel of that salty breeze? I swear as soon as we get close I can feel my stress melt away.

Darn it. Now I really want to go back.

Everyone deals with anger differently

We all have different levels of anger. Our anger manifests in unique ways. When people push my buttons, I react swiftly. Like a fire, my rage burns bright and quick, then fizzles. Steve, on the other hand…

Well, Steve is like an immovable mountain. Things rarely get to him. I mean, seriously – the world could be crumbling around him and there he would stand, stoic and logical as always. Always one step ahead of the game. Except for that .0001% moment when something really gets to him and he flies of the handle. And EVERY TIME it’s some teeny, tiny, insignificant thing.

It’d be hilarious if it wasn’t so dang shocking. o.O

Vitamin D: catching some sun on a nice summer’s day…

My immune system and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship. Mainly, it hates me. Most days we are not on speaking terms. Because of this, I have a vitamin D deficiency. I take supplements (like, a LOT) but there’s no cure than good, old-fashioned sunshine, am I right?

Only, I’m also pale. Like, vampire pale. Like, just a shade darker than albino pale. So, while I need vitamin D, I can only handle the sun in small doses.

I’m not even kidding on this. I wear INFANT sunscreen – which is supposed to last 80 minutes before reapplication is necessary. Yeah, no. Try 30, if I’m lucky.

Makes going to the beach a fun time. 😉

Anyone else have this problem? Has anyone else considered one of those burkinis? Because legit, I have. What do you do to combat the harsh sun rays? Inquiring minds want to know!

Liberty (and justice) for ALL…

Sometimes I get so tired. Tired of all the hatred, dissent, division, and fear. Or, tired of feeling helpless, voiceless, and lost. Most of all, tired of praying and wishing for a better tomorrow, when it all just feels so impossible. Our world crumbles into chaos. Due to this, we fight — we kill — in the name of supposed liberty. But do we really understand what we fight for?

Liberty, at its core, is simple. It means freedom, or the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views. Seems like a pretty straightforward idea. But, that simple idea gets twisted into something almost unrecognizable by the people who claim it as their battle cry. Maybe we should focus on the pledge, “…liberty (and justice) for all,” more than the phrase, “Give me liberty, or give me death.”

Funny how people forget that the right to freedom claims no color barriers, no restrictions.

Funnier still how people oppress others’ freedoms in the name of their own.

Except, I don’t find it funny. Not one bit..

And, I will not be silent.

Game of Thrones (GOT) Season 7 Premiere – My Reactions

Ours is a staunch GOT household. We do not, as a rule, watch a lot of television. One show before bed (our living room TV has legitimately not been touched since last Thanksgiving. Or when our pet sitter stays over. But I don’t count that because WE aren’t technically the ones watching it…)

Anyway, all that to say that GOT is one of the only shows we will watch on the same night it airs. So when they finally – FINALLY, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! – aired the season 7 premiere, I was oh so ready. And I may have gotten a little excited during Arya’s intro. Or cried a little too hard at the scene with the Hound in the middle of the night. Or — well, let’s just say a lot of different emotions were involved. So, I thought I’d share them here. 🙂

What about you? Favorite parts of the episode? Least favorite? I’d love to compare notes!

P.S. Enjoy the comic! <3
