Hey Look! Boeing is going to talk!

Uh huh. Yeah.

According to this article, they've been called back to the table by the FMCS (another fed agency that loves to use letters) Now the negotiations are under the asupices of the FMCS and they're doing it in Washington, DC.

Yeah, cuz last time that whole negotaiting thing at Disney World just didn't cut it.

I'm guessing there wasn't enough mickey mouses down there for them so they had to move it further north.

You may be able to tell that I'm nearing my breaking point. This was never fun to begin with, but for crying out loud, this is ridiculous.

Boeing is refusing to NOT lay off the 2,000 IAM workers and the IAM doesn't want them laid off. While I can see both sides of that argument, there absolutely HAS to be some middle ground. That's just one sticking point in this contract bruhahah. One. They didn't even get past that one last week when they sat down to talk.

I still think they need to call in Sister Sheila with the mad ruler-to-the-back-of-the-hand smackage skillz. Let her loose on those yahoos in DC and see how fast they come to an agreement.

Meanwhile, Lance can't get the most menial of jobs because apparently he's over qualified. Seriously.

Excuse me while I tear my hair out and run screaming down the street for a few hours.


  1. Hope it works this time. Bring that Sister Shelia.

A Poem to an Abusive Man

I've been doing a bit of research on abuse, domestic violence and how it usually ends. It's not pretty and it's painful and I hurt every time I read another woman's tale of horror.

Did you know that emotional abuse is as detrimental as physical abuse? And that most emotional abusers continue on to become physical abusers? I didn't. I do now. I found a site where formerly abused women, on the path to recovery from their abusers, have written poems. This one below is one that haunted me.

Thank You

You wooed me with poetry
I bit on the hook
Had I only first read
The name of the book

I would have avoided
The very first page
For pages kept turning
Revealing the rage

The ups were a great high
The ride was a bash
But I rode with my eyes closed
To avoid seeing the crash
I knew it would come soon
But I never knew when
The rage and the leaving
And the path to the end

You had to control things
Determined you would
Emotionally destroying me
Every way that you could

Elderly Abuse

I heard a loud thud the other morning around 3:30 a.m. I checked my monitor but he'd once again turned it to the wall so I was unable to see if he was still in bed. I went downstairs right behind my sweet husband and dad was on the living room floor moaning and holding his head. He'd fallen. Hard.

The first picture is the day of the fall. The second is the day after. The black eye keeps blossoming. He has a gash on his head, hidden by his silver hair and he skinned his shoulder/arm. He's a mess.

Was he using his walker? Nope. 85 year old toddlers cannot be told what to do. Or rather, they can be told what to do, they simply won't comply. Ever. In fact they get down right angry and throw fits. It's not pretty.

His physical therapist came to the house the next day and strongly told him to use his walker EACH TIME HE STOOD UP. Has he? Nope. Nyet. He was very angry with me yesterday because I kept asking him to use his walker. Also, I asked him i…

I'll Love You Forever, I'll Like You For Always...

I rely on the kindness of strangers...

Or not so much strangers as readers of my miserable blog.

I received a beautiful card in the mail from my long-tine reader (perhaps my ONLY reader) that lifted my heart. Thank you, G. Parkes. It was kind of you to think of me. Seriously---you are so sweet. Thank you.

Perhaps we can meet in person one day. I'll be in Utah after Conference. We'll see how it goes.

I've been caring for my autistic grandson since July. It seems longer sometimes---and that's not a complaint. I adore this little man. He holds my heart. He fills my arms and my heart in the way that my own small babies used to do. When mine reached the age where they didn't want to be in my arms any longer, I felt their absence. Their absence from my arms was heavier than actually having them in my arms. It was an ache that is difficult to describe, a phantom pain where something once was but now is no longer.

Before my husband and I went to the cabin th…
