My Least Favorite Congresspeople – Part 2

I didn't set out to separate the Senators from the Representatives, it just kind of turned out that way.  Since it did, on to the House, again, in no particular order.  Trust me, there are plenty of people there who deserve to be called out.

The Battle With Cancer

I don't know anyone who hasn't been affected by cancer, whether on their own, a family member, or a friend.  Some have lived, some have even been considered cured, and some have died.  Cancer is a nasty, hateful bitch.  Yes, I assigned a female gender, although I have no justification for doing so.  Cancer destroys … Continue reading The Battle With Cancer

I Did Not Acknowledge Siblings Day

So Monday was National Siblings Day.  My Facebook feed was filled with photos of brothers and sisters.  I did not participate.  I do have a younger sister, but our relationship is... strained.  Actually, that would imply that there IS a relationship, and there's not.  I've tried.  A few times.  It doesn't work.  One person can't … Continue reading I Did Not Acknowledge Siblings Day

And … Continue reading In What World Do Confederate Flags Fly at Family-Oriented Festivals?

The Brain that Won’t Shut Off

If you have anxiety, then you understand the title.  One of the phrases that I absolutely hate is, "Don't worry."  Really?  You think that's possible for someone with anxiety?  If anything, that makes a person with anxiety worry even more. Here's the difference between a person who doesn't deal with anxiety and one who does. … Continue reading The Brain that Won’t Shut Off

Pro-Choice Means ALL Choices

I had already read the story, but this morning, there was an interview (http://abcnews.go.com/Lifestyle/daughter-bigger-purpose-life-family-carrying-terminally-ill/story?id=46128337) with Royce and Keri Young, the couple who made the decision to continue through a pregnancy, knowing that their baby would die shortly after birth, so that they can  donate her organs.  It struck me how they're so at peace with … Continue reading Pro-Choice Means ALL Choices
