Holy Hectic.

Forgot about the blog again… started writing in it 2 weeks ago… then forgot. Woops.

It’s been a hectic, crazy, wild life since I last posted. We are still secretly spying on the girl I posted about prior, she’s still psycho. Now I have a new one to add to the bucket of crazy, which I will not go into detail about now.

T-ball has been crazy cute. Rayne absolutely LOVES t-ball, has her little sports shirt, and we should have pictures within the next week or 2 (and yes I will be posting!). We have been enjoying Hawaii best as we could, but once again I got sick over and over with the stomache pains, and it kinda slows us down. I have recently crochet a super adorable little pink and green hobbes doll for a friend of mine who is due with a baby girl end of July, now I have orders to make a couple more of them for some of my husband’s co-workers :). Along with this, I have a baby blanket for my neighbor I’m working on which is beyond awesome (pictures when it’s done!) aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we got a new car… ahhhhhhhhhhh new car… the schmexy brand spankin new car! This thing is going to help with enjoying Hawaii, since it gets epic gas milage compared to the RX-8. Miss the zippy sports car, but totally digging the new one.¬†
We are going hiking this weekend, and have also decided on a super epic theme for my “wedding” we are doing. Decided to do it back in Rapid so that family can make it out, rather than spend a butt load on plane tickets to Hawaii (although I really wanted to get married at a Volcano). It’s a theme wedding, and not until 2014, sooooooooo ya’ll will have to wait a couple years to hear about that one ūüėČ . Upon further investigation, I have started checking into my geneology (thanks to the bestie who has been searching relentlessly for her own). I have realized that I am related to a TON of Mennonite ministers. If they have the last name Gundy, and are Mennonite and an active member of the church, I’m probably related in one way or another lol. Still check into my grandpa’s side, and my dad hasn’t gotten back to me about his side of the family (honestly not that suprised), but I’m getting there! Other than that it’s been normal, every day, boring sitting at home and doing homework… OH! I got my Associates degree beginning of May! I get to do my Commencement Ceremony this Sunday ūüėĬ† exciting but nerve wrecking! Tiiiiiiiiiis about it. So I will let this go and update this weekend!

Religious Outburst

Oh Facebook. Facebook Facebook Facebook. A joy you are to my entertainment needs. Another debate has risen off of such a simple statement. a Statement refering to a woman who was stabbed in a local walmart parking lot, and how they hoped she would “rest in peace”, and then it turned to why the man deserved what he got, why he didnt deserve what he got, and then WABAM, the religious bangers hit the post. I have never wanted to punch someone in the face so bad in my life. Try to make a point, get slammed in my face I’m going to Hell no matter what points I make, I’m wrong, my beliefs are wrong, and I’m just wrong. This person would not bend or break under any circumstance, that she may be wrong with how she was stating things, not that her beliefs were wrong, but how she was stating things that were quite offensive to others. I believe this one was started about sucide victims not being allowed into Heaven because they didn’t ask for forgiveness before they committed the “sin”.¬† I mentioned something about being judged at the gates to Heaven, and asking for forgiveness there, NOPE.¬†Oh I am wrong. that would mean that Hitler and Osama Bin Laden were allowed to ask for forgiveness. o.O wuuuuuuuuuut?

I have never…. been so confused…. But it’s ok. We mentioned about choking someone down with her own personal beliefs, and she says:

¬†“I respect everyone has differing opinions on what God says, but I know that mine aren’t opinions, they are facts coming straight from the Bible.”

Oh an don’t forget, the Bible isn’t up for interpretation.¬† Her word is right, and there is nothing more to it, you don’t do what she says, you’re going to¬†Hell, because you’re¬†a “sinner” in her book.

Wew. Really? Apparently any other religions have no say in the matter, because Christianity is all mighty. I totally respect everyones views on this topic, but this woman was relentless in saying that we are all doomed if we don’t do what the Bible says, in black and white, with no interpretation. Which pretty much means we are all going to Hell.¬† I am not a Chrstian, I claim no denomination, I have my own personal beliefs that are mixed with numerous different¬†bits and pieces¬†of¬†different beliefs, but that’s wrong I’m doomed.

Once again, I totally respect other’s¬†people’s choices, and their own beliefs, but I do not support or respect people who feel the need to tell others that if they do not bend and convert to what they are doing and believe in, you¬† are completely and utterly doomed for¬†Hell. My number one rule, is to¬†NEVER tell someone¬†they are wrong, but respect their views, but the minute someone says that there is no other option, is when I blow my top and try to make valid¬†points.

So lets try this again. What are your views on those that push¬†a certain religion on others? What are your beliefs (in a non-negative, pushy, you’re going to Hell kinda way)? And why can’t anyone just be POSITIVE?

No more negative energy, just bring in the positive, let it be what drives you, and keeps you rolling in life, and lastely, do NOT let anyone tell you, that you are going to Hell. They have no drive or say in what or where you will end up. That is up to whoever, or whatever your believe in, not them.

Unintentional Spat.

So, from the great stupidity that prompted the “HOW DARE YOU” post a few back, we have also ran across another one from our dear friend Ashley. Although this happened a few days ago, it started a whirlwind of debate and of course a lot of problems, again.

There is one thing that “Most” mil spouses know not to say, and that is that they are military.
we will start from the beginning, Military spouses are NOT affiliated with the military in any way except that their spouses are “in the military”.¬† This idiot thinks she has any and all rights to claim to be a “military person”.

Now here is what went down, and i had to dig through numerous messages to find this since the chick blocked me.

She was sitting at the LA airport, waiting 4 hours for her husband (who is in A-school) to come pick her up. She figured out about the USO, which is a little area that military¬† members and their families can go to relax between flights or while waiting for someone to pick them up, usually on PCS or deployments, they can be found at most big airports.¬† she “checked in” at the USO with the update of¬† ” Ahhhhhh I love being a military person!”

Now I may be a bit mean sometimes, and I may be a bit over the top, but seriously no spouse deserves the right to say that they are “military” unless they are active duty, reserves, or a retired/veteran.¬† So I responded with :

“ok, I have to put this out there, since your still a newbie and stuff. You cannot claim you are a “military person”. You, yourself, along with me, and Rena and any other spouse that did not serve, are not military people. we are citizens. We do not wear combat boots, we do not go to war, we do not go to boot camp, and we do not live in sub par¬†conditions to defend our country. Our spouses do. The only people that¬†are permitted to say they are military people are those who are enlisted, or are veterans/retired. This is just one thing that irks the hell out of me, and many other spouses. I admit the USO is a great thing for families of service members, and it helps a lot of families out, especially those PCS’ing, we’ve used the LAX one when we were heading out here, but saying something to the extent of being in the military when you are not is going to get you into a lot of trouble. Just and FYI. Not being mean, just stating the facts.”

Now, prior to posting this on her status update, I proceeded to pass what she said to a few spouses, veterans and active duty members. Each and every one of them was offended and just upset about what she said. Taking credit for something that she had no right to take credit for (mind you this was building up before I posted this… We’ll get into it in a minute), along with just not understanding that a statement such as that could honestly be heard by the wrong person, and she could end up in a fight, or getting her ass chewed by a higher up. She is outcasting¬†herself, and my “comment” was just to clarify that what she did was unacceptable, and she needed to switch it up or she was going¬†to get in trouble.

Shortly after that was posted, I got deleted and blocked, along with 2 of my friends who also were mil wives trying to help her out, who had nothing at all to do with that post.  Wow. this girl. *sigh*

Lets get this point across. This girl is the wayyyy¬†overly ZOMG¬†MIL BLAH WOOOOOOOOOO! she also has posted things that were wrong, such as something about “shooting little towel heads”, someone has called her out on, she tries to post stuff to show how much better the Air Force is to any other branch, which is later disproved since her information is outdated. THEN to top it, she was the one bashing other branches. This girl is in for a whirlwind of hurt, and trouble, and I can see her hurting her husband’s career. I give it a year before she screws up to the point where her husband gets one of those “Muzzle your bitch” talks, as my friend would say.¬† Oh well. She lost 3 people who could have helped her get far. Now she can learn on her own.

Abandoned who what where?

My friend Rena has been sending me messages with different abandoned places throughout South Dakota, a mutual passion we have, and upon further research I have found MANY different abandoned places within Oahu. I’m researching as much information as I can so I can make a trip around the island, takes some fabulous pictures and get a bit of something from this place.
The one thing I can never get enough of, is the history of a place. Abandoned townships such at Ft. Igloo in South Dakota, or old abandoned school houses, buildings, farms, whatever I can get into. We’ve made plans for th week I’m back to check out some places, a bonding girl thing in a way I suppose. I wish I had more people here to make this more of an adventure… It’s definitely something I shouldn’t do with the kiddo, but something I really need to do.

So fellow bloggers, if there are any suggestions for different places in Hawaii (on Oahu specifically) that I would be able to check out, please list them, and list any links! So far, I’ve only found one up on North Shore, but with all the history, the king and Queen of the island, and the culture, there has to be some pretty awesome areas that just haven’t been published yet…. I am willing and able to hike, treck, hop, and crawl into any area I need to get into! ūüôā

Let us discuss: WTF is going on with People?

Well, it appears I can’t sleep, and I’ve found a topic I want to discuss, so I’m going to throw this one out there. Has anyone noticed that death rates are up? And I don’t mean the natural death rates, I mean crazy murders, suicides, stupidity, etc.

I admit, I’m a momma’s girl, and I talk to my mom fairly regularly, along with a lot of people back in South Dakota, and I can honestly say almost every time I talk to someone there is something about some crazy random thing happening, or a murder, or kidnapping, etc. that is going on. For example, one of my mom’s customers were driving from Rapid City to Keystone to go to dinner, some guy was standing in the middle of the road, and SHOT THEIR CAR. For no reason, had no idea who these people where, just did it for shits and giggles. WHO DOES THAT?! Here’s another one, I do believe we have had 2 or 3 kidnappings since the new year of random people, who are later found murdered or something along the lines of a horrible tragedy, in a ditch, or a person who blew themselves up in an elevator, or some idiots hurting animals in the worst possible way (New Years some kids put fireworks in a dogs mouth), or crazy drivers crashing head on into vehicles or running people down, the list just goes on and on.

My question is; WHY. Why are all these people suddenly doing all these horrible things? Of course this happens daily, everywhere, but it seems to be noted more in the news. Is it because Newscasters are just bored or out of topics to discuss? Are people thinking that because “ZOMG WE ARE GONNA DIE IN DECEMBER” that they have nothing to worry about? What exactly is prompting all these people we would never expect to do such horrible things, to do unimaginable damage to so many people?

Now I know most have seen these people on television claiming to be “Doomsday Preppers”, which quite honestly I think is a very entertaining show, but do you believe these people? What are your honest opinions on this 2012 situation? Would you murder, steal, or rack up your credit cards thinking that there will be no consequence for your asininity since the world will supposedly end?¬† I just don’t understand… The world was going to end in 2000, the world was going to end in March, the world was¬†going to end in October, now the world will end this coming December. Do people honestly believe that because the Mayans didn’t “finish” the calendar, that means the world will be blown to smithereens?

Here’s my thoughts on the Mayan Calendar incident:
Some Mayan dude starts creating a calendar, and it is passed down from generation to generation, to keep this production going. One lucky Mayan has an extremely lazy, lets say son. This son puts around and just, forgets and decides that “oh gee, I forgot, Oh well, not my problem, lets just freak a shit ton of people out in the future”, or better yet, he probably just didn’t give a damn. Ya know, my view on this is probably ridiculous but I’m sure lazy people were around in Mayan times just as they are here.

Aside from this theory, Mayan’s didn’t actually incorporate a leap year, which we have every 4 years. Now, if we look at the Mayan Calendar, and insert a leap year every 4 years since the time the Calendar was created, we would be looking at doomsday being ohhhhh…. 8 months ago? Of course there is speculation of this, with all kinds of rumors, even some truths, about what they were looking at. But I want to see the actual documentation that the Myan’s supposedly predicted this doomsday happening. I want to SEE it. I want PROOF that this is what they said, not some loony Priest, Pastor, or Minister. Of course this is just my own personal opinion, but honestly, I’m just sick of hearing about it, and how people take advantage of something they have no idea is true or not.
Oy.

Little Piece of Paradise

With how often I blab about hating Hawaii, I have to admit it really is quite beautiful… I’ve decided to upload a few photos I’ve taken since I’ve been out here, Mind you most are of the kiddo, but eh! She’s cute so it’s okay. On a side note, I have actually begun enjoying living here. I gave up on being miserable, and have decided to just make the best of it, especially since we are going to be here the next 2 1/2 years. People always comment on how I’m so “lucky” to be living in paradise, or how I should be greatful to live in a place so wonderful, but I just can’t bring myself to actually feel like I’m living in paradise. I am a regular citizen, living in a city (mind you 2.3 miles from the beach which is a plus), struggling to make ends meet, and it doesn’t exactly help much that I have no car and my husband works clear over at Pearl Harbor. I’m gonna get there though. I have a few health issues to work through and then I will be back on the boat of getting into shape, playing more with the kiddo and the crazy pup, and of course making my way around the island and truely exploring the culture. I’ll get there. and I’ll make this my own personal paradise. Sooner or later ūüėČ

Toddler Torture Tactics

April 11, 2012 · Filed under Uncategorized · Tagged , , , ,

Oh. My. God. New torture tactic. Deny toddler of juice. Seriously. It’s hilarious yet frustrating. I’ve never seen her spaz out over something so … random. I mean. it’s juice… maybe juice is secretly the “LIQUID OF THE GODS” to children.¬† So second post for the day, and I’ll be done. Just wanted to update on torture ideas for kids, so I shall list the things my child feels¬†are torture.

1.) Deny the liquid of the Gods – As they lose their energetic power, and break down into fits, eventually falling asleep where they are freaking out at.
2.) Deny candy –¬†Will lose all self control, and tear house apart from temper tantrum, shoot flames from ears and nose.
3.) Time Out – Ohhh the dreaded time out… SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM oh it’s over? Lets play!
4.) No Mac and Cheese, Dear god the world will end if there is no mac and cheese….
5.) No going outside (bad weather) – BUT MOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!?!?! I DON’T CARE IF I DIE FROM PNEUMONIA! I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE!
6.) No snack (dinner almost ready) – BUT I WANT A SNACK! NOWWWWW! (demon exits child’s body)
7.) Bed time РBLARRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH  laser beams of death shoot from eyes.
8.) Getting up early – whine, whine, whine, whine, Poptarts? ok, Whine.
9.) Denial of Toy at store/ Time out at store – *sniffle* DEATHSCREAMOFDOOM*sniffle*
and finally…..
10.) The clean your room tactic – whine, pout, pick up one toy, DONE! (tell to finish cleaning room) Pout, wander around room in circles, pout, “I have to use the bathroom” *goes to bathroom*, Pout, “I’m so thirsty!” *takes drink*, Pout, picks up two toys, DONE! 6 hours later, bedroom is “clean”… because I clean it. *sigh*

Oy. Children are Sooooooooooooooo fun.
