When did a political office begin to dictate that the person in the office was to live life like a royal?  
If the average American citizen is paying the salary of a politician why do they live life like the super rich?
For a person to be able to achieve a political seat they have to have connections and money.  So why are the political officials being paid so much money?
The average American struggling to pay bills every month and saving for a one week vacation every year with his family is paying the salary of the president.   Why does the president take three vacations or more a year? 
If the average American family has to have two incomes to make it, what is Michelle Obama's job?
Shouldn't the president's wife have a profession?
What about the rest of congress and those seated in the Senate, and their spouses?
What are their salaries and is the average American citizen getting a salary anywhere close to that?
Why doesn't the government fund the parks so average Americans can visit the parks that the average American citizen pays for without having to pay a fee?
I believe that the political officials in this country are over paid.  The over payment of these political people is a detriment to the enjoyment of life for the average American citizen.
The average American citizen is working to pay bills.  The bill payment cycle is a constant revolving door to nowhere.  The bill cycle is to me very much like the treadmill that the hamster runs on daily.  Paycheck to paycheck we (the average American citizen) are working to pay the next bill with no end in site.

Whats Been Happening

      This is a picture of my son the day he moved out.   for some reason every picture I took at that time is blurry and shows motion in the picture.  
      My son moving out has had some different effects on me.  I began learning about perspective and how we as people chose to look at the world.  This new way of understanding, I think has helped me through my son's decision to move out at 18 before he finished high school.
       I could not remember my log in information which is why I have not blogged in a while although I have had info to share and crochet projects that I have been working on to share with my crochet friends and followers.
       I am presently working on obtaining my bachelors degree and my projected date of completion is August 2013.  The crochet projects have really taken a back seat because of the continual progression through classes and the choice to spend some of my time on other projects and casual computer gaming.  
       Some of the projects I have been working on are: landscaping, redecorating, and cooking.   I have been working steadily on my favorite backyard project the dry creek bed.
      The redecorating is going on in what used to be my son's room.  I have patched holes and painted the walls with primer and scraped the popcorn off the ceiling.  I am envisioning a mild yellow paint and a complimenting yellow and large art deco style print wall paper on one wall.  The curtains for the window I have not yet been able to pin down.  Of course I also plan on redoing the adjoining bathroom the same color but have not even primed the walls yet.
        Cooking,  I am watching Italian cooking shows and have enjoyed cooking some of the dishes that have made my water.  Fanny thing is my husband who would never eat an artichoke heart has!  I had made this dish with stuffed shells and it called for cutting up artichoke hearts and putting it into the mixture of meat and cheese and stuffing it into the shells. 
      He loved it,  so I am having a good time with that and I am still in school making straight A's and constantly working on my perspective. Gardening which is a passion of mine and something I do even when crochet has been my other hobby full time.  I am a giant kid and I never want to grow up, I enjoy doing the things I do and I believe this is how I need to live my life.  Who wants to be so bogged down in a job that tires them to the point they are unable to do the things they love?  That is no way to live, just saying.
