Food and Us

Did you know that if every man, woman and child on the planet ate as much food as we do here in the US we would need 2 more planets to sustain us.  People let's think about this.  It's great that we have plenty, but just because we do does it mean we should?  We used to have an abundance only for festivals, weddings and funerals but every other day we lived a subsistence living.  We made do with so much less.  I am amazed at how much I can eat-  Are you?   We are obese, lethargic and unproductive.  Think about it and make a life decision on what to do about it.

Time, On Time, No Time What Time

You know you are a parent when your teenager can't seem to respect time.  An on going battle is waging in my house.  I feel that if you are bringing the said child to an event of her choosing that the child should be waiting for you not the other way around.  I know once or twice is not too offensive but on a regular basis as part of the norm it is infuriating to me.  I feel that the child has no respect for me as the one doing the driving.  I schedule other things around her event.  I want to bring her to these events but the continual waiting is aggravating.  So now If I have to wait I either do not go or I leave without the teenager.  Enough said.
