Can't You See I'm Busy?!

Certainly the days and weeks and even months that have separated this post from its siblings bear witness to my sloth. But then, perhaps sloth isn't the correct word? The correct word is "inevitable distraction". Hmmm... that isn't a so much a word as a catch-phrase or an album cover title or a self-help book title. So there it is... I told you that this would happen in my first post. It isn't like I didn't warn you. But I know myself and I know how easily distracted I can get...

I guess most of my distraction comes from trying to figure out why our government is still trying to distract us from the truth of the war in Iraq? Check that... I'm still distracted trying to understand how so many people have been distracted by the governement from the truth about the war in Iraq. I am frustrated and angry and to the point of surrender. I want to vomit over the new crop of Democrats and even Republicans who have suddenly come out of the woodwork to (*gasp*) criticize the current administration's handling of this war on terror. It makes me sick to my bones. This what we've got. Someone said that we get the government we deserve. I can't for the life of me understand how anyone could deserve a government like this one. But, here we are...

To be fair, I'm also distracted by the normal distractions of life: disappointment with life, a soul-sucking job, family obligations, a new grandson (who makes this all worth bearing), technology, sports, bills, yardwork and a son-in-law who is about to be shipped to Iraq. Hmmm... I guess we're back to this thing again. Oh well. I, for one, am tired to the point of a hissy fit over this whole war. I'm sick of hearing about it and I'm sick of every so-called expert's opinion. I just want to drop out of the whole world and let it fester in its own juices. That won't happen, of course, but I want to.

In the meantime, I hope this blog understands and appreciates my plight. I realize that you are here, patiently waiting for me to click the "post" button. I know there is much to be added. One day, when my distractions are controlled, I'll be here. Until then, I've got nothing to say; not a damned word. Remember, I warned you about this.
