VALLEY OF FIRE


Thursday, July 04, 2013

A SPARK FRIEND GAVE ME THE IDEA FOR THIS TOPIC. I DOUBT SHE AND I HAD THE SAME IDEA WHEN SHE SUGGESTED IT.

WHEN YOU HEAR THE TERM "VALLEY OF FIRE" I BET MOST OF YOU THINK OF A BIBLE PASSAGE. WHEN I HEAR IT, I THINK OF ABOUT 10,000 OTHER THINGS. MOST OF THEM INVOLVE HEAT OF SOME KIND. NOW, KEEP IN MIND THAT I AM WRITING THIS ON 3 HOURS OF SLEEP LAST NIGHT AFTER ALL THE PEOPLE GOT DONE SHOOTING OFF THEIR FIREWORKS. I DOUBT TONIGHT WILL BE ANY BETTER. I TEND TO GET A LITTLE GOOFY WHEN I AM LOW ON SLEEP. BUT HERE GOES.

WHAT PRODUCES A VALLEY OF FIRE AND IS IT POSSIBLE TO PUT IT OUT? FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE WOMEN (AND I HOPE MOST OF YOU ARE) THE FIRST THING THAT CAME TO MIND TO ME, WAS WHEN WE GET A U.T.I. THOSE THINGS ARE AWFUL! IT'S KIND OF LIKE PEEING RAZOR BLADES. AND THEN THERE IS THE "VALLEY" FROM THE OTHER END. I EXPECT TO SUFFER FROM THIS ONE TOMORROW AS I AM HAVING LUNCH AT "JALAPEŅ-OH!" THIS RESTAURANT SERVES THE HOTTEST AND SPICIEST FOOD IN TOWN. I LOVE THEIR STUFFED JALAPEŅO POPPERS THAT ARE THEN BAKED IN A SUPER SPICY ADOBO SAUCE AND SMOTHERED IN PEPPER JACK CHEESE. HEAT ON HEAT ON TOP OF SOME MORE HEAT. BUT I WILL PAY FOR THAT LATER IN THE EVENING WHEN I SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE BATHROOM. I HAVE TO REMEMBER TO RE-CHARGE MY NOOK TO TAKE IN THERE WITH ME. STILL, I COULD NEVER GIVE UP MY SPICY FOOD.

AND THEN THERE IS THE "VALLEY OF FIRE" THAT MANY OF OUR HUSBANDS APPEAR TO LIVE IN. AT LEAST MINE DOES. HE FEELS LIKE HE NEVER DOES ANYTHING RIGHT. COULD BE BECAUSE HE NEVER DOES. AND HE REALLY NEEDS TO LEARN THAT HE SHOULD NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE ABILITY OF A WOMAN TO FIND SH&% OUT. WE HAVE RADAR FOR IT THAT IS INSTALLED SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BIRTH AND THE NURSERY IN THE HOSPITAL.

AND FOR THOSE OF YOU STILL WORKING, THERE IS THAT VERY SPECIAL VALLEY THAT WE RESERVE FOR SOME OF OUR BOSSES. THAT IS THE VALLEY WE WOULD MOST LIKELY USE TODAY, ON THE 4TH OF JULY, WHEN WE TAKE A FIRECRACKER AND SHOVE IT UP THEIR ........ WELL, YOU GET THE PICTURE.

    I saw your post on mine about husbands not talking. Mine goes back and forth with the right and wrong thing depending on how he wants to maniputate me. I am not a manipulator but I can be manipulated. You would think after all these years and experience I would stop falling for it! Nope, I hold out a lot better though. Usually he is the one that does absolutely nothing wrong Mr. Perfect, he is like that at work too. It is annoying. I did not work with him but when I was working it was in the same field and I heard "comments" from others about how he talked down to them. Well now I get it first hand. Then there are times he puts on the hurt puppy act, and tries to act like everyyhing is his fault, (not sure if he is really taking the blame though...). But we still do not talk, oh he can talk about his work but I open my mouth and he can't seem to get out of the room fast enough, or his eyes start to dart away. So yeah I know what you mean, it was a lot easier to deal with when I worked because then I had people I could converse with but now? Nothing. I get to stay home read usually, watch some tv not much. What little I do is with him at night. I hate not having grown up conversations any more. Or intellectually challenging discussions if that is better about anything. I am so bored mentally, and without the mental connection we do not have an emotional connection therefor we do not have much of a physical connection. I guess that is where we are at now, does that sound like what you are going through too?
