starting things off today with this video… i think of all you cat owners out there… and there are many… and i know that the ungrateful bastard must surely have many of the same thoughts….Birdie?
is that just not the funniest thing ever? ok well maybe it’s not, but it’s pretty danged funny
so everyone’s all up in arms about this breastfeeding thing… my opinion? not that it’s worth anything…
i don’t now that the child is going to be permanently damaged. i think the mom has some issues – unless she’s totally broke, living under a bridge and has no other way to feed her kids…. there are so many divided opinions on this one. but i think the best way to look at this is to take our cues from the good ol animal kingdom… those mommas don’t nurse their babies for 3-7 years. they wean them off by instinct… and generally, they are weaned off the teat when they are able to eat solid food. i have to wonder if those kids from the Time article are eating food as well as nursing? and if not, man, her milk supply storage units don’t look nearly large enough to feed a 3 and 5 year old!
one other thing, her teats look mighty danged good for a momma who’s been nursing two kids for 5 years… what’s up with that? airbrush anyone? if no airbrush, that that just sort pisses me off ha!
well, this time next month coach will be on the field of his new sabercat home… i will be home drawing, writing, and stressing over finding myself some credible employment… man, i can’t wait! we are both so excited…(not being sarcastic at all)
i guess it’s time to start packing. i hate packing. when i was living life true to my gypsy soul, i didn’t own squat – only what would fit in my car. now that i’m considered a bit more “normal”, it would seem that i have acquired a load of crap. when did that happen? sheesh. sort it, trash it, pack it, move it…. unpack it, sort it, trash it, set it up. gee… and there are those who’ve been asking what i’m going to do with my time off…. pft
the other thing about leaving a job and moving on? all of the sudden people around you begin to realize your value… the things that you do in the job that are important… what it’s going to take to replace you as you are leaving…
the other day i was compared to a soft, broken in teddy bear that is always close by and comforting… only now, the teddy bear is being taken away and a new one will be replacing it… the new one will be hard and stiff requiring that breaking in time that no one enjoys… lol i laughed at this comparison
visited with my fantastic neuro guy yesterday… and he’s going to continue being my primary doctor for all things MS…thank goodness! although he contacted a guy down in the RGV area who is top notch and apparently was or is the president of the neurological society… and a trusted neuro. all my records will be sent to him and he will step in should i have some major relapse or other MS crap that needs to be handled directly… the two will coordinate my care… i like this – oh and i’m going to get a new drug once it’s all approved…. yeppers… safe and much more effective than what’s out there right now… i like that it’s not a “new” drug so has years of data behind it already… years… i’m looking forward to it… and it’s a pill! BG-12… the numbers are great… more effective on relapse rate and on disability progression. and no needles! the cool thing is that if i take it and it doesn’t do anything for the MS, no harm no foul. the only side effects are flushing and waste management tends to work a bit harder (which ain’t a bad thing around these parts)…
ok… i’m done rambling this morning… TGIF!
