Hmm… spent all day yesterday getting ready for and barely making my flight to Chicago so it wasn’t until this morning that I heard all the hoopla about the air traffic controller who fell asleep on the job while a plane with a sick patient was trying to land.
Dude, as if flying isn’t scary enough. Oh and, this makes what? The 7th time something like this has happened this year? As in, seven times the past FOUR months? SMDH.
But as potentially horrible as that situation could have been, folks falling asleep on the job still makes more sense than the woman in Newburgh who drove her four kids into the Hudson River after a fight with her boyfriend/ baby father.
And what on it- Now that the 25 year-old killed herself and 3 of the 4 children, folks are coming forward to say that the woman had been behaving strangely and seemed overwhelmed in the weeks leading up to this tragedy. Really? And no one thought to check up on her and offer to help?
I can’t. We need to be more to kind to one another. Life is hard, everyone could use a helping hand.
*gets off of soapbox & starts to pray for the 10 year-old who managed to escape from the sinking car*
Random: Has anyone tried these Insanity workout DVDs?
Flipping through the channels over weekend and happened upon the crazy looking info-mercial. And I was INSTANTLY intrigued.
Cause the Lord knows, my relationship with the gym has recently become sketchy at best. I just can’t stand the smell, the machines are either occupied or broken and the person working out next to me ALWAYS seems to be coughing and sneezing. And is there anything worse than the sick person at the gym who’s trying to “sweat” out a cold but doing nothing more than infecting everyone around them?????
READ: I need another way to address the soft & squishy situation that’s happening on my tummy and thighs. IMMEDIATELY.
So tell me, is this just Tae Bo 2000 or does this nonsense really work?
I just finished reading the details on the burqa veil ban that takes affect in France today. Hmmm. I must say, I’m consistently amazed by how deeply the threat of terrorism has changed in the world in the past 10 years. The international level of unabashed fear and intolerance has hit an all time high and continues to rise. And not for nothing, it’s really sad and unsettling.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for safety. But something about this law feels extremely discriminatory.
