Vacation week

March 19, 2009

Well vacation is here and almost gone……it has been relaxing…..I think. Well the process of moving has been turned up some. Job fairs are coming soon and it looks like Austin is the place to be. Thats where we want to go Austin.

I ache inside to think we may have to stay here longer but not foolish enough to go if there is no job. W is struggling to move. As a child she moved OFTEN and ended up attending 18 different schools. Do I understand fully? In some ways yes, she likes the security of what we have. I get that, I do. She wants our kids to have that security and they do. We have had our tough times like every couple does, but we have gotten through it.

Moving is stressful, very stressgul as anyone knows. I would miss here in a heartbeat…the ocean. It has been a part of my life since I was a baby. I drive over it everyday and see it everyday…it is a source of stress relief.

If we were to ever move out of state I would love to go to Maine. It’s beautiful!

and your point is…

I came across one of the other blogs I read where this person was discussing that people always think she and her partner are sisters and they are say they are not. She then decided to switch to the word wife and has gotten some progress with that.

I call W my wife because legally in some places she is. We are married. The funniest thing I hear is that people tell me they are okay with that. I have noticed this is a re-occuring problem lately. I know when I tell someone I in fact have a wife what are they going to do tell me I don’t like that? That in a sense would be like me telling someone that I am okay with them being short but maybe they should grow some so I will feel better. This is my point people…I understand that people will be surprised at first…but they are okay with what exactly? Do they immediately think of us having sex? If they do then then is pretty shallow. We don’t drool all over each other. We hold hands occasionally. What about the deep throaters in the malls? Does anyone ever say anything? Nope. If it’s outside the “norm” then everyone gets in a tizzy.

How do you define “norm”? I see it mostly comes from the religious point of view.Christian mostly. We have many different religions here and to base the norm on one is not normal period. We live in a time where religion is a part of many lives and it should be. It should NOT be part of making decisions in the government. To make a decision for the good of the people should be it. Not based on what the bible may say. People left England many years ago to escape religious presecution. Aren’t we doing the same thing here when telling a group of people they cannot be married because of the bible? The word bible may not be used but it is the founding bias for our presecution. People should not be based on someone’s religion. It is written into our constitution separation of church and state.

So I am really thinking next time someone says I am ok with that I will say and your point is…

On we go…

as Rosie would say….life is flying these days. Feb was a blur of people being sick..including the moms here. Thankfully not at the same time but the only bad thing with that is it cuts into normal time.We have spring break starting in about 10 days woohoo….

I have mentioned before I/we are so ready to move…..but the economy is not helping matters at all….so it is in our best interest not to right now….even in teaching if the budget is cut the last hired is the first fired…sigh I want out of here…to the point where I feel irritated knowing we have to stay….or more like it crying. I am tired of not having any kind of network here you must hide….it SUCKS guys…and chokes who you believe you are….not that I scream hey guess what I am but damn…..if you want to hold your wifes hand I dont want the “look” or someone is ok with it. With what? Would you tell somone who was disabled I am ok with watching you use a wheelchair…come on…yes can you tell I am sick of it?!
