I am feeling a bit of righteous indignation today and I’m trying hard to make it go away. Problem is, I think it is somewhat warranted. And this bit of righteous indignation is not just because of one thing – but several in general so when I think about them as a whole, I think the “bit” goes to more like “considerable”.

Ever watch the movie “9 to 5”? Remember that part where Mr. Hart (the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot) takes MAJOR credit for something Violet did? Well, lets just say – I’m feeling like Violet this week. I love it when Doralee says she’s going to change him from a rooster to a hen with one shot.

AND – Sam’s last birthday he saved his money from his grandma and from us; hunted, studied, shopped around and basically found the best bicycle for him and bought it with his very own money. He was so excited about it. He cleaned it with a diaper even. For the most part, he kept it parked in the basement since we seem to have bike thieves living amongst us. He forgot a few times, but mostly it was kept downstairs, tightly locked and safe. Last week we had the main drain back up into the basement. I know, fun fun! We took almost everything out, bleached the floors, put new carpet in Sam’s room, new Linoleum in the laundry room and had everything taken apart and in mass disarray for a while. Yesterday, he called me at work and wanted to know what we had done with his bike. Making a long story short, it was stolen out from under our porch. I’m trying to remember “in my anger, do not sin” but that is a hard instruction to preserve. Especially since my anger is so immense at the moment.

On a lighter note - Robbie, Sam and Lizzie all tried out for parts in the play Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which is being put on by a church in Wentzville and they all made it! Robbie is Ruben, Joseph’s oldest brother and Sam and Lizzie are in the children’s choir. When Lizzie tried out she got up on stage, said “This is just like American Idol” and then in her best Simon Cowell, British accent (which was quite good actually) stated “Just don’t tell me I’m pitchy, ok?” Sam did very well also, but he’s not as gregarious as his sister. Robbie got up and sang two songs and it amazes me still how well he can sing. I forget that sometimes because I don’t get to hear him very often.

Well, I’ve updated. I know it’s been awhile and I apologize. Could be worse – could’ve been a year.
