What's On My Mind #2

Still working hard on my current “Work in Progress”.  So this is another week of what is on my mind.

1.                  Have any of you been watching and reading the Steubenville Rape trials?  I have.  It’s close to home.  But this week, what’s bothering me about the case is the media response.  They seem to have forgotten that this is a trial about rape.  Not about the lost prospects of the rapist.  I’m quite disheartened by the coverage on the “poor boys” and not the poor victim.  What have we come to? 

2.                  Easter!  It’s so close, that I can all ready taste the blue peeps.  Easter is my favorite holiday.  It seems though that each year I get further and further toward the candy and the turkey and the event, and forget the real purpose of the day.  I need to work on that this year. 

3.                  Teenagers.  They are hard.  I thought that the hard part of being a parent would be the first five years.  I was so wrong.  The first fourteen years were easy.  I glided right through those years with common sense parenting and book reading and trial and error at times.  The period from fourteen on has been horrendous.  I always thought it was nurture that would win out, but I have been proven so wrong.  Nature is the winner. You can’t override the nature of a person no matter how hard you try, no matter how great of a parent you are, no matter how firm a parent you are.  Nature will win out.  I’m sad to say.

4.                  Fire.  I am wondering if you are made from the element, if you would still feel the pain of it against your skin? Or would it just be a part of you.  I can’t decide.  I can come at it from the point of view that if you are made of fire it can’t really burn you weather inside or outside.  But then, I wonder if maybe fire can still burn you on the outside as that is where your pain receptors are and you would still feel the burn of it.  Yeah, I still can’t decide. 

So what’s on your mind this week?  Anything new?  Anything weird?  Anything fun?  Share.

    I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!

  5. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  8. Heya! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot
    of work? I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like
    to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

  9. Courtney,

    Goodluck to you, you're going to keep needing luck while raising teenagers! I feel for you as I was one of those horrible teens to raise. My poor mother, it didn't matter what she did I just wanted to be left alone! Please try not to take what your teens do personally. They aren't thinking and probably won't again until they leave the home! I will keep my fingers crossed for you though!
