Queen

Last night in my effort to stalk up the freezer with microwavable dinners I picked up the movie Queen. As in British Queen Elizabeth. It's all about and her family when (princess) Diana died. Let me just say that you must be a Diana fan to like the movie to start with, but Its one of the few I have wanted to re watch as soon as it was over. It's all dialog and all about the Queen and Tony Blair (I like him more after seeing the movie) and I like the royals quite a bit less after seeing the movie. The move begs me to ask a few questions
1 Can wealth and privilege really cause you to disassociate with your people, Can you really be put on such a high pedestal that it's hard to see the floor?
2 Why would someone mourn a family member like that? They took these boys deer hunting and she wasn't even cold yet!
3 Compassion where was it? As being a Christian where was her compassion?
4 It makes Americans look like golden retrievers, and gladly so, I would much rather be viewed as loyal as royal wouldn't you?
and last my conclusion

Diana could have never been a true part of there family. They did not understand her she was the golden retriever of that family only that she was living with lions not dogs (with a lioness at the head of the family). Who would think that you could confuse compassion and being able to show love towards other humans could be misconstrued by her royal family as impropriety and immoral behavior? Diana only wanted to be loved and to love others, it's clear that she wanted to be loved, after all why would she go so far as to look for it?

OK, you have intrigued me. I might have to buy this movie and check it out. Sounds interesting.

I miss everyone. My life has been very stressful, and my folks will be here tomorrow for a looong weekend and I am in the middle of a huge computer upgrade at work. Too much to juggle. I just want to scrapbook, is that asking too much??

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…
