Happy 36th Birthday Roe V. Wade

Abortion has been safe and legal now for 36 years. I hope it stays that way. And I will do what I can to keep it legal, and women safe from back-alley abortions that could kill them. I believe it is the choice of that individual woman, her partner if she chooses, and her doctor. It is a difficult decision to make, and I will never hold a woman's choice against her.

And thank you President Obama, for lifting the global gag rule on family planning groups.

I will not tolerate attacks on me for my views. If you choose to post a response, I expect it to be civil.

Things Heard Around The Smith Household 2

Moose was been home from school sick last week. We were sitting next to each other and he was still in his pj's. He looked at me and very seriously explained, " Mom, you know when my pj's are up like this, it's because my penis is up. It's up because it's inflated with pee. That's why it stands up sometimes" (He really DID use inflated!) So I looked at him very seriously said back to him, "Why don't you go to the bathroom?" He jumped up and ran off after saying"Ok!"

I tried to laugh quietly until he was on the way back.

I Wonder those punk "protesters" would react to a store owner standing just inside of their shop filming them.

I must say how ironic it is that one of them was on the news carrying a sign saying "The streets aren't safe". Really, I mean, really. No shit, especially from morons like you and the "young brutha" who just wanted to express his anger by using his skateboard to break a window.

Go home, any point you wanted to make about the violence of others has been soured by the violence you have wrought.

Right now like a lot of other people, and for various reasons, I feel anger toward the BART Police. One of the big differences between me and a lot of the other angry people? I'm not destroying the city I freaking live in. What a bunch of morons.

Happy New Year

Well, here it is. 2009. Have I made any resolutions? Nope. I've got some goals to meet, and will work on those.

We had a quiet evening and hung out with the kids watching "Hot Fuzz" and "Indiana Jones, Crystal Skull". If you can believe it, I had to ask Smith what the second movie we watched was. (I wasn't too interested in Indy this time.) We've seen Hott Fuzz several times and usually spot something neww each time. If you haven't seen it, go rent it!! Believe it or not Moose picked that one out.

So we watched movies at home and munched on a spread laid out on the table after Smith got home. I usually don't cook on New Year's Eve, so we made a deli, and Costco richer for my laziness last night. The kids picked some things out that they wanted. Moose wanted "stinky cheese", (Camenbert), and Snake wanted "fancy ham", (prosciutto). Ya, our kids are foodies - they don't have any other option, really.

At midnight we sipped champagne and kissed (of course!), the kids had sparkling pear juice, and then they ran outside. Smith pulled out his...3 packs of 15 year old firecrackers and the guys blew them up. It was a great night.

We slept in late, had our cinnamon rolls and bacon, (just like Christmas).nd the boys are now outside running around with a friend. Smith and I or sitting around watching the tube and playing on our computers. We have a trip planned for tomorrow, we're going to Monterey.

I hope every one has a good 2009, and gets everything they want from it! Best wishes to you all!
