–Have any of these screaming, ranting, acting like lunatics people actually read the 1000+ pages of the Health Care Reform bill? I just want to know if they’ve actually sat down and read the entire thing. I haven’t. I don’t plan to. I probably should. Just this morning I couldn’t help but shake my head and laugh at the TV as a random citizen screamed in Arlen Specter’s face that one day he would “face God” and that “God would judge him” for “this”. Really?! No offense, but I’m thinking that “God” could give two farts to the wind about health care reform.
–I was a little put out last night. I caught the last 30 minutes of the season finale of “Kendra”. She was my favorite “Girl Next Door“. She recently moved out of “The Mansion”, got married, and is expecting a baby sometime around Christmas. I was put out when she was asked about a nanny for her child. Both she and her hubby were all gung ho over getting a nanny. She said that she was given the advice that she would require one. That she would be so very tired for the first few weeks after giving birth that a nanny was the only thing she could do. She must have one. ….. ….. ….. I’m sorry. This is the biggest load of crap. I wish someone hadn’t told them this was the best thing, but of course I don’t know them so… Thousands of women give birth everyday and take their children home and guess what? THEY TAKE CARE OF THEM BY THEMSELVES. I know it’s apparently a far fetched idea to some, that a mother would actually have the responsibility of taking care of her own child, but everyone I know with kids has done it. We’ve had no trouble. Sure, we were tired. We just wanted that baby to, please for the love of all things holy, just sleep through a night. We wanted that random smell to go away. But you know what…. that’s what happens when you have a baby. You have to sacrifice a little sleep, a little rest, a lot of time. If you need help, call your family or friends. Now I do understand that she is moving a very long way from her family, but there is no reason that for the first few weeks there can’t be someone hanging around to give a helping hand. I hate celebrity types who get “nannies”. It’s about as bad as scheduling your C-section. I understand doing that if it is medically necessary, but C-sections are supposed to be for emergencies only, not just for your convenience or because you are scared to give birth the normal way.
–Why is the price of gas going up? Again…
–I think that school starting back the end of July or the first week of August is all kinds of wrong. August is normally the hottest month of the year in these parts. (Ha! I said “in these parts”.) Why put all those students on those extremely hot buses? Why sug’, why? Why do they have a Fall Break now? We didn’t have a break in the Fall. We started school the middle to end of August, had Thanksgiving break, had a Christmas break (not a “Winter” break), had Spring Break, then got out of school the middle to end of May. Now they start too early, get too much time out, and go too long. Why sug’, why?
–Did Rick Pitino actually do that? He’s like a god in Kentucky. What will people think of him now? I kind of think he’s a little like the creepy, dirty Uncle you don’t want your kids around.
