The Virtuous Lady

To revere a minister to the point of accepting the idea that no matter that the minister has been deposed for cause by his denomination his calling is to be honored is not to be a virtuous lady, but to be a blindered mule.

And to twist the 5th commandment from Honor thy Father and Mother to honor an unworthy son is to twist God's word.

Have people forgotten the T in Tulip? The total depravity of mankind?


God bless those who seek righteousness.

"Tain't What it's Cracked up to be!

As a product of the so-called age of the liberated woman, I have often wondered if the "fulfillment" of my profession is directly related to how tired I am. Well, I got the answer today in an article I read on Yahoo News, which I quote:

"Employed mothers reported spending on average 44 hours a week at their outside job and 49.8 hours at their home job, while the stay-at-home mother worked 91.6 hours a week, it showed."

93.80 working hours for the mom employed outside the home, on average. Well, in my daytime job we routinely work 50-60 hours a week with no overtime pay, so let's adjust those stats just a wee bit. 109.8 hours of work a week, my home job and outside job added together. Subtract those hours from the sleep I could possibly get if I weren't doing either job.

It would seem I am working 18.2 hours more than the stay-at-home mom, and sleeping 18.2 hours less.

Let me know when I am feeling fulfilled, y'all!

Please don't mind my yawn.
