These are a few of my favorite things

I am sure that some people find my blog kind of boring. Unlike fellow bloggers who come up with a variety of topics, I tend to write (and by write, I mean ramble) mostly about the following:

  • money (expenses, spending, taxes, etc.)
  • sports (easy to do when you live in the City of Champions AND are not a big baseball fan)
  • kids (well, mine specifically)
  • politics (though I have been lying low on this subject for awhile)

It is easiest to write about something I feel passionately about. Or, as is often the case with me, something that bugs me. When I was trying to come up with a name for the blog, I was debating between "Facie's ramblings" and "Facie's rants" (in either case, I probably should capitalize the R, but I am so sick of people capitalizing things they should not, that I left it lowercase out of spite). Since I tend to ramble more often than rant, I went with the former. And considering some coworkers asked if my blog was called "Facie's Rants" (well, my actual name) and I did not exactly want most of my coworkers to read the blog, I figured I made a good call with the name.

Since I have rambled on enough, I will leave with a comment about each of my favorite things:

  • I don't understand why in today's economy someone would buy a house with 100% financing and an interest-only loan for the first few years. I saw it on HG TV the other day, and I was actually mad at the couple.
  • For some reason, at the moment, I don't really care if the Steelers make it to the Super Bowl again, though, as always, I want them to get to the playoffs. On the other hand, I would love to see the Pens win it all again.
  • Jordan made it through her first day of first grade, and it went pretty well for both of us. Hopefully tomorrow's full day will go as well, though I am a little nervous about dropping her off at the cafeteria to wait with the other kids when she still does not really know anyone.
  • I don't think Obama is doing that bad of a job. Not great, but it is still early, and he is up against a lot. If I understood the health-care reform proposal (and if I had the desire to read over 1,000 pages), I would comment on it. Maybe some nonpartisan person can enlighten me someday soon.

Rambling over for now.

I just read an article on the P-G website about how PA still does not have a budget. Here is my favorite quote from the article:

"Next, House Democrats plan to call a meeting of a six-member conference committee that meets in public to hash out the differences between House and Senate spending plans. Last time the group met, members spent hours squabbling about who should be chairman, how sessions should be conducted and whether the meeting room was large enough."

Can we purge the legislature and start anew?
