Keep Your Xmas

Posted on

I lose money and I lose hours at work that I need to get work done, and the money per hour that I would be getting if I was there. I’ve spent money I can’t afford to spend for a reason I don’t believe in, and all in the name of a materialistic society that perpetuates itself to a level of ridiculous I can’t even name.

You can keep your Christmas. You can keep whatever it is in it that you love so much even though it’s complete bullshit. I’ve read your bible, cover to cover – while most christians haven’t, I did. My decision to forego religion was like most of my decisions, informed and impassioned. You know why you’re instructed to read only certain passages? Because that book is FUCKED UP. Let’s not even discuss how many versions there have been, who’s had their hands in it and the science that completely debunks it, repeatedly.

I hate this time of year, the world is overrun with materialism and greed and the kids are falsely sweet because their entitled asses want something from their parents that they don’t deserve. And when I do get out to go to the damned grocery store or any retail anything, I’m asked to give up money, guilted even. I’ve never once had someone tell me I changed their life with a gift I’ve bought them. My son isn’t a better young man because of crap I bought him, in fact, I regret buying him an Xbox years ago, it benefits him in no way shape or form, I should’ve bought him a bookshelf and books to fill it.

I don’t want your Christmas, and I don’t want the other commercial bullshit holidays either, Valentine’s Day – I bet Christians thought that one up, let’s celebrate a massacre, that sounds like a great plan. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day – none of that either. If these kids can’t appreciate their parents, the calendar shouldn’t be what reminds them to go get some BS card from Hallmark to commemorate feelings they don’t have.

I’m sick of the materialistic world, the one where I’m supposed to believe in some phantom that wants me to live in “his image”, I mean really, what the fuck does that even mean? His image is a lie, it’s some BS made up and a race that’s been disputed for years – if he even existed at all!. Religion gives people a false ideology, principles based on mythology and worse, a self righteous attitude that can make a person more susceptible to mental defect. Because to believe in that shit you have to forego your ability to reason and just believe, and “have faith”. It is of great concern to me that people are still so enraptured by a lie (despite proof of the alternative – no religion is necessary), but that’s the human condition, screw accountability, let’s just be heathens and ask forgiveness. It’ll be fine in the end.

Child Support

Posted on

Having a child is a commitment unlike any other in life, it is at times the heaviest responsibility and at others…the most delightfully spiritual relationship you’ve ever had. Children are a lot of work and as they say, don’t come with instructions.

My ex’s sister said to me once that I was lucky that he even wanted to be involved with my son. At the time I laughed at her ignorance and to this day it is still the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard another female say. All that aside, us moms are not “lucky” to have to deal with our exes, our children deserve both of their parents – fair, adult parents, unless they’re a disgusting criminal like my ex became.

My lawyer told me once that at a proceeding I couldn’t make it to that my ex had told him that he would never pay more than $400 a month in child support. It wasn’t about my son for him, it was about what was going into my pocket, regardless of the care I took of my son, the money I spent being sure his needs were met and he was fed and we were insured, etc…it is no small feat to carry a household alone.

None of that was even a thought. He asked me once why I even needed it because I was doing fine. LOL! Asking an inane question will get you an inane answer, I said, “I gotta get my whiskey somehow”. Huzzah!

For those of you that pay child support, it’s not about you, it’s about being sure your child can have the things in life that you did not, and a single parent cannot do that most of the time. At best a single parent can provide the needs and a little of the wants on Christmas.

Get over yourselves and take care of your kids.

The Blockage

Posted on

Guys I have to apologize, I have really had a hard time this week. Not with life, haven’t been stressed or anything, just haven’t been able to write.

Believe me this is frustrating. I’ve opened my blogging platform everyday with the intention and have had a few starts but they quickly fell flat.

Some of you may argue that all my posts fall flat and to you I say good day.

But to the rest of you, I am sorry, the writer is having a blockage in the brain area. This weekend holds promise thoguh with a Christmas party that I have to attend with hubby tonight and tomorrow will be watching his Grandmother act in a Christmas play at her church…..fun.

The bright spot is the open bar tonight…I wonder how close I can get to the bar for our table….you know, less chance of showing how drunk I am. šŸ˜‰

If There Was No Christmas

Posted on

Christmas is coming and for the last several years I’ve held a question in the back of my mind, will this always be considered a “religious” holiday?

What about those of us that don’t practice or believe in religion? We like to spend time with our families too and this is the only time of the year that’s widely recognized as a holiday season, what happens when religion no longer prevails? Do we lose the season?

What would there be if there wasn’t Christmas?
