30 Days of Truth - Days 16 - 23 in one

So I'm getting lazy.

Here is where I combine days 16 - 23 in my days of truth. I feel like I have been staring at some of these topics Forever, some of which I can only come up with a few sentences for. Thought it might be more interesting to throw them all into a longer post together.

Here we go.

Day 16 - Something or someone you could live without.
Hmm, a few choice people, but we won't go there. Things I could live without?
Having to do laundry, having to clean my own house (because who Doesn't want maid service?!), bugs (inside the house ... not that we have them ... but outside is ok, just don't come In my house!), mayonaise on anything - ANTHING - except if it's mixed in with tuna... and let us not forget eggs. No, not mayo mixed with eggs - well wait, that's gross too. But I mean eggs cooked in any way that isn't mixed into a recipe. For instance, using eggs as an ingredient in cake, meatloaf, etc = good. However, making fried, scrambled, deviled, sunny side up eggs... omlettes, quiche, etc = bad. Gag.

Day 17 - A book you've read that changed your views on something.
How I wish I could come up with something to really write and be passionate about for this post. As someone who could not read enough books growing up, sadly it's been a long time since I have read any books not baby or toddler related. I do hope to make the time soon to really get back into reading again, maybe this is a post I can answer in the future.

Day 18 - Your views on gay marriage.
This one? Is personal to me.
This one deserves a longer post for another time, but for now I will keep it short.
EVERYONE should be allowed to marry the person they love, no.matter.what. I believe you do not choose to be straight, gay, etc - you are born that way and there is no changing it. My uncle is gay. And he has been with his partner for 23 years. There is no reason why they should not be able to be legally married if that is what they wanted. I can not understand why the people who are so against it care so much. How is it hurting them.

Day 19 - What do you think of religion or politics. Uh, boring. I think almost anytime someone brings up religion or politics people are going to disagree. Or fight.

Religion. I was pretty much born a Catholic. My dad is Catholic, my mom is Baptist - my siblings and I were raised Catholic. Over the years I have at timse struggled with my faith, thought about changing my religion as an adult. Now that I have children (and my husband was also raised Catholic), we are raising our children the same way. But open minded we stay on a lot of issues. (As you can see from Day 18 above.) Whatever religion someone practices is cool with me.

Politics. Can you also be born a democrat? Because I think I was. If however there is a democrat running who is well, not up to par and someone from another party is better? I will vote for the best person. Thankfully, they Usually tend to be a democrat. :)

Day 20 - Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Um, drugs are bad.
And alcohol is good!
Seriously, Never did the drug thing. Not even pot. Smoked cigarettes briefly (thanks to my cousin who I love <3), tried cigars (disgusting) ... never branched out any more after that.
Alcohol though? That was (is?) my thing. Do you KNOW me? Love love love it. End of story. (In moderation of course.)

Day 21 - (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Duh. You go to the hospital. Really now, who would say forget that.

Day 22 - Something you wish you hadn't done in your life.
Dropped out of college.

Day 23 - Something you wish you had done in your life.
Graduated college. BUT there is still time, so that's on my list.

And that wraps up days 16 - 23. Here's to hoping I haven't bored you to death. Time to go yell at the twins again (who are NOT napping quietly like their big brother by the way).
