I have a situation.... I can't go into here because the people involved might read it...... I'm frustrated and I don't know where to turn........... UGH!!!!!!!

In other news, I was just cruising around reading some blogs I don't normally read (I'm killing time at lunch). I stumbled across a couple of blogs written by one person and the English was horrible. I know I'm no English major but this was really, really bad. I immediately assumed this person was not American. Wrong!! Born and raised in the good ol' USA and educated in our school system. Wow, that is really bad. I can only assume that this person does not proofread what they write or run spellcheck.

I am such a snob about spelling and grammar. I read a lot and I have found that the quickest way to read is if something is well written, as in good grammar. It doesn't have to be perfect, I know I'm not perfect, but at least make an effort. If a blog has lots of grammatical errors I will stop reading it. It's not worth the effort to try and figure out what they are saying. It doesn't take that much longer to proofread something. I will write my post, run spellchecker, publish the post then read it. Sometimes I edit it 3 or 4 times for stupid mistakes. It still only takes about 2 minutes.

Okay, I'm feeling a little grumpy and grouchy today over things I can't discuss :) We may be on the verge of buying a house in Colorado. We would rent it out until we moved then we would have a place to move to. So, in the interest of sanity, I think I'll go look at Kohler faucets, they generally don't piss me off :)

I too hate bad spelling and grammar...and usually call people on it (if I can in a friendly way). Having someone else read your stuff before you make it public via e-mail or flyer is a good thing.
Hope you are feeling better now...where in Colo? That is really cool!

The thing that kills me is when people write as if they're texting on a cell phone... "R-U OK?" Ugh. I know my spelling and grammar skills are not perfect, and I also go back and edit, even after posting.

I hope there is some resolution in your situation, what ever it may be.

I hope things settle soon too, whatever's happening. Take care!

Maybe not the why, but the how

 Last post I was struggling to find the why. Why am I working out? Why do I want to be healthy? Why do I need to take care of myself? Yes, t...
