A small thought on Obamacare...

I LOVE the Discovery Health Channel. I can watch most of the shows any time of day (although I typically only watch TV in the evenings and only for an hour or so).

The other evening my sister and I were watching a fun show called Deliver Me. It is a great show, but this isn't about that.

AFTER Deliver Me came a show about Homebirthing. This is a trend here in the US and overseas where pregnant women deliver at home with NO SUPPORT. Their husbands (or "partners") are there, but no mid-wife, doula, doctor, etc...

This isn't a debate about homebirthing.

Will you get to the point already? :o)

One of the first segments of the show was of an ob/gyn office in Great Britain. The waiting room was MASSIVE and pregnant women were EVERYWHERE! Most of them looked like they had been there for quite awhile and were digging in for the long haul.

All I could think as I saw that room is HERE is socialized medicine at its best. Long waits. Large waiting rooms filled to capacity.


Choosing to take away choice.

Ironic, isn't it?

When we were in the ATL...

I thought I'd share a few photos of the visit to Atlanta in August. Mostly we spent time with neighbors and just hung out around the house. JMonster did do a white trash bit and ran around in the sprinkler system in his undies. Here are the pics to prove it. Too cute!


Loving life!

Run! Run!

I think this one shows the story of our lives.

Girl's weekend

So, I never did an official post of our girly weekend in downtown Fort Worth. Here are a few fun pics of the fun!

We got our tosies done

Flat Baloney! (And some random dude hitting on everyone?)

Fun Friends

More fun friends!

Twinkies! But can you guess which is which?

Seriously!?! We're all together and everyone is texting?

Once upon a time...

Once upon a time there was this girl (okay, technically she was a woman, but that makes her cringe so we'll use the term girl loosely here. Follow me now, people...) and she started a blog.

She started this blog to get her thoughts out of her head so her hubby wouldn't be vomited on as he walked through the door (once again, technically, she didn't REALLY vomit on him. Just words. But lots of them. All the time.) and so she could feel heard just a little bit.

But then she moved. Across the country. And lived with her manic sister. Who is also ADD. (Just testing! She doesn't read my blog, so now I get to talk about her in whatever fashion I want! And she can't say a darn thing!)

And now her blog has gone to pot (are we talking marijuana here? I think not. When we say gone to pot, what do we TRULY mean? Anyone know?) and she is sad that all of the things she has wanted to write about and show are still locked inside of her head.

It's time to take the key and unlock the door. And allow her to spew all of those stories, photos, and rantings en masse. All at once. In the span of just a few days.


Are you ready for the onslaught? Be sure to wear your rubber boots, raincoat, and carry your umbrella. It's about to pour...

Out of the mouths of babes!

JMonster says the darndest things.

They come out of nowhere and tickle you to the core. Here is one of his most recent. (I'm putting this on here now since it has to do with our move and it is happening NOW!!!!!)

JMonster was talking to The Rev a couple of nights ago. He wasn't using ichat since the internet has been disconnected in the house in Atlanta, but was doing the old fashioned phone discussion. JMonster was walking around my bedroom and just chatting up a storm (which is unusual on the phone...he tends to talk a lot, but loses interest on the phone).

He sits down on the floor next to a box...a moving box I have filled with pieces of cedar planking I removed from inside the drawers of a dresser I gave to my younger sister last week.

I hear JMonster announce "Daddy! We now have some boards so we can build our house!" as he opens the box and pulls out some of the cedar.

Can you hear me laughing out loud as I roll around on the hardwood floors?

If only building our house could be that simple!
