Random Thoughts of a Depressed Mind

I've been down for about a week now. I don't know why, but I always battle depression in October. For about the last 15 years, I get pretty depressed when October rolls around. The weird thing is this is pretty much my favorite time of year. I love the cooling, the early dark, the leaves changing, etc... The last two years was pretty mild, but I'm feelin' it pretty heavy this year. I can't sleep at night and when I do fall asleep I don't want to get out of bed. I'm having a hard time focusing on tasks at work. I'm a little more on edge around Jamie and the kids. I'm pretty much constantly focused on the negative aspects of my life. Anyway, all that to say I could probably use a prayer or two.

Here are some questions to ponder (or even respond to):
  1. Is it possible to discipline your kids appropriately and have them not grow up hating you?
  2. Why doesn't God kill all those "GOD HATES FAGS & SOLDIERS & YOU" people from that church in Kansas?
  3. How can my A's win 3 straight against the Twins, but not one yet against the Tigers?
  4. When was the last time anyone saw a truly joyful Christian? Why are homosexuals way happier than us?
  5. Why isn't anyone starting a revolt against the US Govt for what is nothing less than financial rape through our taxes?
  6. When will Christians stop believing W is a good thing for this country because he claims to be a Christian? Everybody out there (even if you love him) knows in their gut that he is less than honest. I'm not saying anybody else would be more honest, but stop making him out like he's the best thing since Martin Luther. Other than tax cuts (primarily for the wealthy) and war, name one other promise he's kept. How are all of your "faith-based initiatives" doing? W is the best liar I have ever seen, because people believe him. When Clinton said, "I didn't inhale" or "I did not have sex with that woman" or "We will cure AIDS by the year 2000", we all went, "Yeah, right, whatever." He was a horrible liar. But the crazy thing is we think W is a better Pres because he's a better liar. Anywhoo...
  7. Is anyone else extremely disappointed in the 21st Century? Where the crap is my flying car?! And why am I still walking on sidewalks? Aren't they supposed to be moving for us?
  8. When they talk about Steve Irwin's death, why do they always refer to the stingray as a "gentle creature"? Hellooo...it's got "sting" in its name!
  9. Why is Rich Mullins dead and Paris Hilton still walking and breathing?
  10. How much longer till October's over?
