What annoys me ...

I have to share what annoys me with you - although no one who reads this blog has ever done this to me - but I need to get it off my mind.

It really annoys me I get e-mails, or notes, or messages, or IMs, or whatever that say something like "ALL homeschoolers should support this guy" or "ALL Christians should avoid reading this book." or "ANYONE who breathes air should not watch this movie."

Okay, really ... do ALL of them really do whatever the e-mail says? I think not. And secondly am I SO dumb and SO stupid that you feel you must tell me what to do because you know another wife/mother/female/Christain/Homeschooler who feels that way? And must their opinion be somehow more informed and more important than mine and hence you need to tell me what to do? It is annoying. In fact, it's very annoying.

Yes, I know many homeschoolers support Huckabee. I will not vote him simply because of that. So stop sending me links about why I should.
Yes, I know many Christians are up in arms about A Golden Compass. Frankly, I am not. And also, none of my kids are old enough to see the movie. And if I want to read the book, I will. I don't need you to tell me about it. Nor do I need Religious leaders sending out memos regarding the same thing. I think instead of worrying about this one book, it might make more sense for our leaders and cognregations/etc to focus on, oh, teenage mothers, people who can't feed themselves, people who can't afford their medications, poverty, helping those with drug and alcohol addictions who can't find other help, etc. And maybe people are doing that, but spam my e-mail box with stories about how you are helping and doing good in this world.

Thank you.


  1. I agree with you 100%. Everyone is welcome to their own opinion and I do not think it is necessary to impose that opinion on others.

    With regard to the candidate to vote for, I feel this is a very personal choice and I would not even let my husband influence that choice.

    I also have a real problem with people trying to tell me what books and movies to read and see. I had the same problem with the Harry Potter series. It is up to you whether you choose to let you children read and see.

    In essence, everyone needs to mind their own bees wax.

  2. Ron Paul supports homeschoolers too ;)


Seeing your comments makes me smile! Thank you so much =)
