It was a bad night....


Last night was such a bad night! I swear that I must be super woman and nobody bothered to let me know. Hubby is sick so we must stop the world and cater to him. Now really, honestly let me be fair here. He is very very very good to me, and he does a ton for me. This however is not going to stop me from complaining about him right now, because I had a bad night! So, I'm sitting at work yesterday and my shoulder starts hurting like crazy!
A little back history here: February 2009 we go bowling, have a great time and go home. Next morning I get up, I have a lump that has formed from where the neck and back connect to about the middle of where the shoulder blades are, and can't move my head or right arm. I figure it's a pulled muscle, suck it up and keep going on. Come July, my neck and back are still killing me and there is still the lump, so I go to the Dr. They think it's inflammation, put me on meds for a week plus a cortisone shot. That does nothing. They send me for an X-ray...nothing. They send me for a CT scan...nothing. They send me for an MRI...I have a slight fracture in my neck and am losing bone marrow, but nothing to be concerned about and not the problem. They do a bone scan to check for bone cancer...nothing!
Fast forward to current day: the lump is still there, I am still in pain, and yesterday my shoulder starts killing me. Now I was just sitting there, not moving, and it starts hurting like hell. So I put my hand up on my left shoulder, and it to is now swollen like crazy. The best way to describe the pain is it feels like there is a knife in my back and someone is twisting it around and around, constantly. Pretty much the same in my shoulder now.
So I get home, hubby already knows the pain I'm in and do I get any sympathy at all....NO! It's do this for me, do that, you shouldn't answer the phone so much, what are you gonna do for dinner since you didn't pull anything out (oh yeah hubby you were home ALL day), be fair...he did end up buying dinner for us. But UGH! I wanna go take a shower and go to bed early, I hurt and I'm just pissy....but no, I can't do that, I must take the dogs out to go potty and obviously I am the only one in the house that can do that. So where is my sympathy? Where is my help? Why me?!?!? Yes, I'm having a pitty me moment right now. Ok being fair again here, hubby typically does take very good care of me when I am sick, but when it's pain, I just think he doesn't get the amount of pain I'm in. Sometimes I wish he could feel it for just 5 min (wouldn't wish this on someone for longer than that) and then maybe he could/would appreciate the pain that I am in.
Ok I'm done whining and complaining now, I'll go about my day, but thanks for listening (or reading) anyway. I really do appreciate it. Oh and I know you'll give me sympathy as well, because well we women just understand each other so thanks for that as well! Hope you all have a great day!

Wednesday Review

Disclosure: No payment was received for this blog post.

For Christmas this year, the lovely office manager where I work gave me some of the Japanese Cherry Blossom body lotion from Bath & Body Works. Now I have always been a huge fan of the Sweet Pea and have been loyal to it for about 7 years now, refusing to try any other, but who am I to turn down free? Not only am I huge fan of Bath & Body Works, their lotion is fantastic and always makes my skin feel smooth and silky, but I am now in love with the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent. This scent lasts much longer than the Sweet Pea. My husband does complain if I put it on right before bed saying that it is to strong and he can't handle it, so I can't put it on before bed, but it lasts for hours. I only use a dime size amount that I rub on my hands and then down my face and neck and I'm silky smooth and smelling good! I will be going to buy myself some more of this when I run out. They have an entire line of this scent in store from lotion, to bubble bath, perfume, soap and even room scents! You can check out the entire line here or any of your other favorite scents!

365 Project!


I am participating in the 2010 Mommytography 365 Project! For this year long project I will be posting an image a day, to get me out shooting, using my camera and learning new things with it daily. Anyone interested in photography can join, no need to be a Mommytographer. We have teens to adults, male and female, as well as people from all over the world. Come join the fun!

Oh no hubby is sick and I messed up.....

 So hubby has come down w/ what the kids had over Christmas and I'm so not happy. I have requested that he stay in the bedroom and away from ME! I don't want it!!! I've gotten lucky this far and I have every intention of staying lucky. So I got home from work took his temp and sure enough he's got a fever, so I get him Tylenol and a cold glass of water and back out of the room I go. I get the kids, make dinner (ok we had leftovers) and a few minutes later hubby is out of the room...OMG...get back in there fast fast fast! He wants something to eat so scoot hubby scoot and I will have you something whipped right up. Toast and jam it is, since that's what he wanted. Well even though our bedroom door is connected to the living room he doesn't want to yell for me every time he wants/needs anything and I understand completely. No little ringy bell in this house so I hand him his cell phone and say just call if ya need something. Ladies I'm telling you now that was a HUGE mistake! I want a ringy bell thingy that I might just could ignore and not the phone ringing every 5 min when he needs his head rubbed. NEVER again will I hand someone a cell  phone and say just call the house if you need me. NOPE! So if hubby ever gets sick get him a bell, preferably one w/ out the dingy thing inside it and tell him to ring if he needs you, but what ever you do don't hand them the phone and tell them to call!

Ok so here it is...

First I have to say that being bipolar does not make one crazy, insane, unstable, need to be in an institution, or psychotic! So for me this coming year my goal is to get out more information about it. Too many people make assumptions about people who are bipolar. I'm coming out, I'm tired of hiding it like it's a unforgivable disease. I'm tired of being worried that people will find out...THIS IS WHO I AM!
So lets start with what bipolar IS: Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric illness  characterized by extreme swings in mood, from highs (mania) to lows (depression).
Now what this means for me is: I may go from happy mom/wife, to crying mom/wife, to really pissed off mom/wife in a matter of minutes. Now, when I take my medicine this is not so bad. Do I have some days that are worse than others, ABSOLUTELY! But, I also have days where I am pretty calm all day. Those days are not so often these days as many things can change that from stress to weather, to just having a bad day.
Treatment for each individual with bipolar can vary. Some can do with just therapy, while most need medication and life long medication. Does it suck, yes! Do I like taking 4 pills a day, no! But for the sake of my family and my sanity, I do it. Even still with medication I have difficulty sleeping and concentrating some days, ok most days. I go from one thing to another. The best way to describe it for me is, it's like someone is in my head with a remote control flipping like hell through the channels. It is not like this for everyone and mostly it is the worst at night.
I will be posting more on this subject at a later date. For now if you want to learn more about bipolar you can get info here.

Product Reviews

Once a week I will be posting a product review. These products will have been purchased by myself, and I will not be compensated unless otherwise stated. I will be reviewing things that we use as Mom, wife, or just the average every day person. This review may be on an item, food, a restaurant, or even a store that I shop at. In any case I will be doing a review once a week. I think for now, I will do my reviews on Wednesday's. If that day changes I will post the new day so you can read about the reviews. If there is anything specific you would like me to review please contact me by email.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season so far, and has a great week!

I tell kids the darndest things....

Today  my stepdaughter Megan was asking me about stomach pumping and how it was done. So I explained to her the big huge tube they shove down your nose and the nasty black charcoal they put down it and then how it makes you vomit. She asked me how I knew all of that, and I being the honest person I am told her...I tried to OD when I was 17. Well this kicked into the how old were you when you got pregnant w/ Lexi, so being the honest person I am told her I was 15 when I got pregnant and 16 when I had her. She says "that had to hurt!" Well dear child, childbirth at any age 16, 25, or 93 is going to hurt. She says "No, that really had to hurt!" Again sweety, childbirth at any age "really" hurts! She says to me "No, I meant the sex part and all that!" So me and my honesty says "OH...that part...OMG that part is EXCRUCIATING, I'd rather give birth 10 times then do that!" Think I held her off for a few years?!?!

I have found a new love...

Disclosure: No payment was received for this blog post.

I have the worst hair, from frizzy, to a ton of split ends. I increase the damage to my hair every single day by using a hair straightener on my hair. Upon getting good deals at Walgreens and coupons, I picked up some of Dove's newest line Intense Damage...OMG is all I can say. My hair has been so incredibly soft since I've been using it. I will be buying this product again. You can try this also by getting a free sample here. Go ahead, try it, I dare ya to! I know you will fall as much in love w/ this product as I have. I have always loved Dove, I use their shampoo, conditioner, body wash and deodorant...but the new Intense Damage line is absolutely incredible! I have been using it for about 2 weeks now and I have to say that my hair feels it's best in a very long time, and the conditioner does not weigh my hair down.

I'll be back later to post some more, but I had to share my pleasure w/ all of you.

Pictures for the calendar....

These 2 were being Romeo & Juliet...they are so silly!

They are so pretty and such good friends! Who thought 2 stepsisters would get a long so well.

Oh the drama!

They love to pose!

These are just a few of the pictures we took for his calendar, but we had a real good time taking them!

What a wonderful Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas, the kids were all very happy w/ what they got. Lexi almost didn't get one of her presents. Scott realized she hadn't opened it and we were searching all over for it. It was a poster of the Twilight wolf pack, and silly silly me put it in w/ the Christmas wrap. In my defense it looked like a roll of Christmas wrap! Hubby spoiled me rotten!

I've been bugging to use his MP3 player so he got me my own!

My Kodak printer that I have been bugging for so I can print out coupons. It also does a wonderful job at printing pictures....I am soooo thrilled w/ this one!

2 Victoria's Secret bra's and 3 choni's (panties)...he even got the right size!!!
And he got me a $100 Visa gift card to buy some more work clothes! I love him so very much! Poor guy everything I got him didn't fit. I bought him a really nice jacket from Macy's a size was to big. I bought him a shirt and hoodie from American Eagle a large and they were to tight in the arms, and a pair of jeans that I swore I grabbed the right size and screwed that one up all together. I feel horrible for it. So today when he gets up we have to face the crowd and go to the mall to return! Not happy about that one, but I want him to have his stuff. While he is doing that, I'll be going to New York & Company and do some clothes shopping! Not only do they have 70% off everything, but I also got a printable coupon for $25 off $75. You can get your printable here. You must use a Visa, and it doesn't expire until 02/28/10!!
I hope you all had as wonderful of a Christmas as we had here. I'll be posting the pictures of the girls that we took for them to make their dad's calendar.

Santa's Prayer on

Christmas Eve

By Warren D. Jennings

The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,

But Santa still knelt by the side of the bed.

"Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.

There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.

I must jump in my sleigh and streak through the sky,

Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.

I will visit each household before the first light,

I'll cover the world and all in one night.

With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,

Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.

To get in the house is the difficult part,

So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.

My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.

The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.

I will fill all the stockings and not leave a track.

I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.

I can do all these things Lord, only through You,

I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.

All this is to honor the birth of the One,

That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.

So to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,

Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job."

I hope everyone of you have an wonderful Christmas and have many blessings in the coming year.

It's a great day today!

So I'm sitting here at work (working very hard, can ya tell) and it hits me...the Christmas spirit. I've been in the Christmas mood and I love Christmas, but I guess from wrapping presents lastnight and realizing that everything is going to be fine is what has made me settle some. I always worry about one getting more than the other and trying to make it all equal between the three of them, but sometimes it's so hard. It's hard to spend the same amount on all 3 and then still have equal amount of gifts because one gift they ask for may just be the full amount you have to spend on them an then they get one gift? I've always set a dollar amount on how much I want to spend, or rather I take what I have to spend and split it between the 3, and get them what I can w/ that. I try very hard to get them the things they want on their list, but it doesn't always work out. Lexi got some money from her Grandparents and now she is bugging me to spend it. She wants to buy the Vampire Diaries series, guess what Mom got her for Christmas and it's so hard to keep saying no w/ out her figuring out that I got it. I don't want Christmas to come and be over now that the "spirit" has hit me. Kind of late for it to be hitting me isn't it. Next year I swear I am gonna start my shopping early. If I have a couple extra bucks I'm gonna buy what ever is on sale. I think it'd make getting those stocking stuffers easier to. I'm also thinking that next year I will ChaCha and not cash out until I find something that I need to buy for them for birthday's or Christmas. I also do surveys and such so I will save that money also.

On a less brighter note, I still have absolutely no idea what I will be getting my husband for Christmas. I was going to just give him the money for his floor mats that he got for his Jeep (who knew they could be so expensive) and call it even. But no, not him, he couldn't make it that easy on me. I swear husbands are the hardest people on earth to buy for, and I think they do it on purpose. Maybe it's their way at getting back at us for all our mood swings and hormonal break downs through out the year. That's the only explanation I can come up w/. Why else would they be so complicated? It certainly would be for pure entertainment, now would it.

I can't seem to find a pink eye shadow that I like. I don't want anything to bright, or out there, but a nice pink. Every time I get a pink, it turns out to be to white looking and I don't like it. I don't have the money and I refuse to pay a lot for some make up. I've tried Cover Girl, Maybelline, Loreal, and Rimmel. None of them seem to have a pink that I like and I'm about tired of wasting money on make up. All I want is a pink...geez doesn't anybody make a nice pink anymore? Anymore it's all glitzy and glittery and well lets face it, I'm not 21 anymore and have to wear the "grown up" makeup these days. Gosh I wanna be young again!

I am so confused today!?!? I am so very much in love w/ my husband, he means the world to me and he is my best friend in the whole world. I can't imagine spending my life w/ anyone else, he is my match, my soul mate, my other half. Right now I feel so much love for him that I want to run in the room (he's sleeping has to work tonight) and squeeze him so tight and never ever let go. BUT there is the other part of me who is feeling panic, and sadness, and I want to cry! WELCOME to my life!!! I am bipolar! But days like these I hate, I wish they didn't exist. Why can't I just have one emotion at a time, why can't I just be freakin normal?!?! Me, me, is it I can sit and ask why me, when I have a husband who is loving and supportive (now that he knows and understands and I'm medicated). Poor Scott, who puts up w/ my mood swings, my insane anger to intense happiness, and then the crash and I start bawling like a baby. Most days I am one or the other, or I flip quickly from one to the other, but thank God for Scott's sake he's asleep because I am going through a moment where I feel them all at one time....AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH! I hate it! I want to be one emotion....HAPPY! I'll take content, or somewhere in the middle, but please oh please Mr B stop flipping through my emotions so you can see how long it is until I lose my effin marbles!


Ebay has decided after hearing from so many people that they will after all waive their fees as they had initially promised the family! Thank-you Ebay for finally seeing what the right thing to do here was.

Ebay you are horrible!

I am here to say that I will not support you, or purchase off Ebay EVER again unless this is fixed! I can't believe you could or would take from a sick child and his family that are so much in need right now. I'm appalled at your actions!! Here is the story, and where you can get more information about how Ebay has hurt one family so much. I will be emailing, calling and writing letters just to let them know of my anger and frustration w/ them. If enough of us gather to do this, and continue to spread the word, maybe just maybe Ebay will do what they have promised and agreed to. They should be ashamed of themselves!

Missing Utah Mom....

Do you ever just wanna slap someone in their forehead and say just think about it. This man IMO has guilt written all over him. Who on earth takes their 2 & 4 yr old out to go camping at 12:30 am in subfreezing temperatures, only to return later that evening. Oh and in those few hours his wife disappears w/ out a trace. I just don't believe in me at all that this man is innocent. I know, I know innocent until proven guilty....but this has Scott Peterson wrote all over it. I feel so terrible for those 2 children whose mom is missing and it will probably be a unhappy ending. I'm so flustered by this case, as much so as I was w/ the Lacey Peterson case and the Caley Anthony case. Common sense says he is guilty. I hate that people like this think they can do it and get away w/ it. Why not just leave? Why put those poor babies through that pain? This is not a temporary pain, this is a pain that will last for life. I hope and I pray they find her alive and well, but I doubt it very much they will. Why is it they are only calling him a person of interest? Why is he not a suspect? And what is the difference? I'm amazed that not even his own family...ok let me be fair, but his brother-inlaw can or will say that he is not capable of doing it.

Christmas is just 8 days away and I'm so excited. Well I'm happy and sad. I LOVE Christmas, and I love the spirit of Christmas and all the cheer in people. It always seems that people are in much better moods this time of year, no matter how stressful it is. But I'm sad that Christmas will soon be over, back to the doom and gloom in people. BOO! This year went by so very fast didn't it?!? I can't believe that it's almost 2010. Funny though, I'm a year ahead of myself and argued w/ someone at work that next year is 2011. So either, I can't count, or I'm rushing life, or it could be that I'm over worked these past few weeks. I vote for #3!

Just 2 more work days and I have a day off. This is my last 6 day week for a few weeks. Now I will get to go back to my normal, 6 days every 3rd week. Next week I only work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I can't wait for that 4 day break! It will be much needed. Saturday can't get here and be over w/ soon enough. My stepdaughter, Megan will be flying in and spending 2 weeks w/ us. I love that little girl (ok she's 13 and not so little anymore) so very much. I can't believe that my husband and I have been together for 6 years now. Time has gone by so quickly. We have been married for a 1 1/2 years, and I love him so very much. Yes, he can drive me absolutely insane at times, but he is my best friend and I can't imagine life w/ out him. Now if he would just tell me what to get him for Christmas!!!

Goodbye to Meatball....

Well Meatball will be leaving for his new forever home tomorrow! I have such great satisfaction in knowing that we were able to save his life, and he got a second chance at life. I am so happy for him! I will not however miss the barking day and night from Guapo who absolutely hated having a new dog in the house. I hope that we will again some day be able to foster and save another dogs life.
I went to the Dr's today and got all my med refills. I'm very happy w/ my Dr and how easy they make appts available to me. I called yesterday and they were kind enough to work around my work schedule and make and opening for me before lunch. Most of all, I love that there is never a long wait. I'm always in and out of there within 30 mins. No waiting in the waiting room for 30 min, then getting back to room and then waiting another 30-45 min. I love small town Dr's!
Work has been so good this week. No complaints in that department. Everyone has been in a fairly good mood. I do however hate all the stupid drivers that I have to deal w/ to and from work. I can't believe how ignorant and inconsiderate they are. All I ask is that you do the speed limit and don't cut me off, or slam on your breaks in front of me for no given reason other than you and your friends think it is funny. I used words that I never used on a girl yesterday, who 7-8 times felt the need to cut me off, nearly clipping my front end and then slamming on her brakes in front of me all for the entertainment of her friends. That or she just wanted and or was hoping I would hit her so that she could get a new car. Sorry idiot girl, I have really good reflexes when I am driving. Husband would absolutely kill me if I wrecked my car, and probably not once ask if I was OK.
Christmas is so close and I am so not done shopping for it yet. I have no clue what to get my husband. Any ideas for me? I wanted to get him something for his Jeep that he just got a few weeks ago. He wants seat covers, but when we were looking at them they were like $400. Sorry honey, I just don't have that kind of money, though I wish I did. I don't know what to buy the man who has everything. He doesn't say "I want" w/ out going out and buying it after finding the best price. Bless you husband for leaving me nothing to buy you. I do have one idea of what to get him for Christmas from the kids. I am going to take them out and take pictures and get a calendar made for him. What do you think? Is that a good idea, or is it something only a woman would like? Hmmmm...what about one of those digital photo frames? Is that maybe something a man would like, or is that a chic gift to? I am so absolutely bad at this gift giving things. I still haven't a clue what to buy my son. He's hard to buy for as well. All he wants is video games, but 1 they are expensive and he'd probably only get 1 or 2. And 2 I'm sick of him only ever wanting to play video games. He needs to learn there is more to life than just video games. What is it w/ boys and only wanting video games? Do they not realize that they are expensive?
I'm realizing each year more and more, we have no real family traditions at Christmas and I just don't know what to do. What are your family traditions? Maybe I will steal and idea, that is if you don't mind of course.

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I am so glad that I was able to save Meatballs life, but the barking all day and all night of 3 dogs is really really going to make me lose my marbles! Guapo, my 2 lb Chihuahua does not like him....AT ALL! Tequilla, my 6 lb Chihuahua, doesn't really care, but if Guapo is gonna bark she is going to back him up. And Meatball thinks they are trying to play. So my choices right now are....stand in the kitchen and tell him to stay off the counters all day..not as much barking. Be any where else in the house and listen to non-stop barking of 3 dogs. OR put them all in separate rooms and feel like an ass because I did it!
I can really really feel the crankiness come on. I'm so tired from working 6 days a week. 1 more week of this and then I'm done for a few weeks and back to the normal 6 days a week every 3rd week. The over time is nice, but the exhaustion is shitty. I'm trying so hard not to be cranky, but I get a little pissy when I'm working 48 hours a week or 52 next week and I still have to clean the house!! WTF?!?! I'm tired, I'm cranky and I don't want to spend my ONE day off cleaning. Uh oh...the crankiness is slipping out. But really, WHY? Why do I have to clean when I've worked 6 days a week? Why can't I sit and be lazy (like I am right now as I am typing this) on my day off? Well I'm off to finish up laundry and scrub me some floors! Woohoo!

The Daily Dribbles

Thank You Very Much from the Daily Dribble, couldn't have come at a better time! So here goes:

-To the wonderful lady who thought she was going to cut me off and when I didn't let her, flipped me off and cussed me out...thank-you very much!
-To the wonderful employee who is late almost every single day...thank-you very much!
-To the bad people who dumped off Meatball at the pound and he almost died...thank-you very much! (No really THANK he will be in a better home where he is loved)
-To the man who was kind enough to tell me how bad my smoking is...thank-you very much! (It is not MY smoke that is gonna kill you since I don't smoke near you, I've only seen you once in my life and I wasn't smoking at the time, just buying them.)

I'm sure I could go on and on and on w/ my thank-you's but I will stop there. This felt good!!

Look what Meatball can do! He is constantly standing on the counter drinking out of the faucet that we have left running because it is so cold outside and we don't want our pipes to freeze. Good news today!! They believe they have found a perfect match and forever home for Meatball!!! I'm so happy and excited for him. He is such a sweet dog and he is going to make someone really really happy. 

Please if you have room to foster, or you want a big dog, please consider adoption. Check out Big Fluffy Dogs to see if they have a group near you! We will all thank you for it, and the love and appreciation you will get from the dog is beyond compare.
Meatball will be back home w/ us soon. I can't wait for him to be home and comfy. This has had to be a very stressful time for him. 1st to come so close to death, then to be thrown into the arms of strangers (loving strangers, but I'm sure still scary) and then taken the next day to the vets to be neutered, and given shots, and now he'll get to come home today and get settled. I hope we are able to find him a good home, that he can stay in forever, and be loved.

I was not around yesterday and that adorable puppy above is the reason why. This is Meatball, he is a Saint Bernard / Great Pyrenees mix. Meatball is 5 to 6 months old and weighs 60 lbs. Last night he was in a kill shelter and had only 1 1/2 hours to live if he didn't find a home. My husband and I decided that we would foster him until he finds his forever home. Someone who can love him and give him the care he needs. How someone could put this sweet face to death is beyond me. He is such a great dog! He hopped right in my car and laid down for the ride to his new home. When I got him home, we gave him a bath right away and removed his death tag, broke my heart seeing that around his neck. He is a giant of a dog, and he thinks he can sit on my lap, but he doesn't fit. It's really funny when my 2 lb Chihuahua barks at him and he runs and hides behind me. Today he went to the vets and got fixed along got updated on all his shots. We will get him back tomorrow morning and start working on getting him trained. He needs to be housebroken and learn some basic commands as well as not to jump. So if I go absent for a few days, it's because my hands are full right now trying to care for this baby until we find him a suitable home.

I have the itches....

Well it's that time of year! The dry skin has set in and I'm going insane. My skin gets to the so dry you scratch it till you bleed dry. I don't know how to fix this. I'm gonna lose it! Yes, I do one of the biggest no no's and that is I take extremely  hot baths and showers, but I have to to feel clean. I put lotion on as soon as I get out of the shower/tub and still I end up itching like crazy. I have tried tons of different lotions, from really cheap to really expensive. I have tried oatmeal baths, and several other home remedies. So please if you have any ideas share them. I will try anything just to not have dry skin and itch like this anymore.

^ That is me, sitting here all day waiting for my sister to have my niece! They induced her at 7:00am this morning and here it is 8:12 and still Olivia Rose has not decided it is time to enter this world. This is going to be one stubborn little girl, who is going to always do things her own way. I have been patient all day and now, it is almost time for me to go to bed and still no new niece. Come on Olivia Rose just get here already!!!

Today at work we were talking about debating, one of my favorite things to do. However, there are topics that are untouchable w/ me and I just can't debate because I feel so passionately about my view and it's best that I don't talk about those. So my topics are abortion, animal cruelty/rights, religion, and child support. So without stating opinions, what are the topics you are very passionate about and nobody dare debate w/ you on?
