So my husband worked out of town yesterday. He left yesterday morning at 5am, and got home at 11pm last night. We ate a quick bite, and went straight to bed.

So Hubby woke up at 4am I'm guessing for a quick trip to the bathroom. He shakes me awake and say "Hey, it's raining" Now it's been a pretty mild summer, mid 90's few 100's this year, but raining?!? NO WAY. So I say "Hunh? Inside?" <---- Yeah, I'm a genius when I wake up, right?

Hubby says "Yup, it's raining in the bathroom....don't try to make sense of it, just come here"....Sure as #### it's "raining" in the bathroom. The upstairs apartment is leaking into our bathroom. GREAT!!!!

Our "manager" is supposed to be here with someone to fix stuff at 10am. Meanwhile, the celling is bulging, and water is dripping. I saw the upstairs neighbor and told them there was water leaking from their bathroom into ours. I asked them to talk to the manager, not run their water and check to see if there is water coming from anywhere.....what did she do? She left.



Up date, there is now a huge hole in our ceiling. They almost had to break into the neighbor's apartment because they have changed the deadbolt, and their toilet tank has been leaking for God knows how long, and they "never noticed". GRRRRR. We have to wait for the ceiling to dry out before it gets fixed.

- Difference between the teachings of Jesus and the teachings of the church

I don't think I have to explain, but I will. I think it's very simple really, and I don't/can't understand why everyone can't get it.

Jesus said love all, care for all, include all. Everyone and everything is God's creation and God's creations should be loved and cared for.

The church (and IMHO the Episcopal Church does a little better than most) says, love those that don't make you uncomfortable, care for the people who are like you, and include ones who you understand. Those who make you uncomfortable, aren't like you and you don't understand must not be God's creation, because God wouldn't create different.....right?!? I mean really, God doesn't want us to grow and change, God doesn't want us to evolve and think, God doesn't want us to be inclusive and God sure as shit doesn't want us to EVER be uncomfortable or confused or thoughtful. OH, and inclusive, caring and loving, God sure wouldn't want that.

SIGH, I hope the sarcasm comes through!

- Gay Bishop Not Included so No One Feels Uncomfortable

- God Wouldn't Give Women Spirituality, Now That Would be Just Silly

- the 4th

We went to the Bay Area this past weekend and spent some wonderful time with the family. Saw some friends, and loved every minute of it.

I have transfered jobs, and have a new learning curve, which has it's positives (I'm not bored) and negatives (I'm not bored).

I haven't had time to knit, but I have had time to read which is wonderful, I love to read.

I saw a movie this weekend, I would suggest, Kung Fu Hustle it's great. My step-son LOVES it and tells everyone he sees "I've got Kung Fu Hustle!"

Well that's a quick update on what I've been up to. Life is busy as usual, and I need to clean my house....sigh....I wish houses were like some oven and you could set it to self clean.
