I think I just got called out on Facebook.

Judi mentioned maybe I wasn't blogging anymore on Facebook. Combined with Uncle Michael's demand for a new post, it seemed time. Although I have to type all of this with my left hand because of my maimed right hand. It's a good thing I'm not a righty. Oh, wait- I am. Well, at least I don't have cause to wash my hands ninety million times a day. Oh wait- I do. So, aside from my new love of Vaseline, what else is going on?


Only Greeley could look grumpy while eating bacon.

And ice cream push pops. Look! I added another kid! Just kidding. It's Greeley's BFF Petey.

My house looks almost presentable up there. Let's change the angle, shall we?

Closer to the truth there.

What else? Miss Atlee had a birthday a while ago- so we sent cupcakes to school. Cupcakes with Peeps!

And then just a random shot of Greeley eating a bag of frosting. With green kitty whiskers.

Now excuse me while I go cuddle with my jar of Vaseline.

Shiny Fire.

So, I was looking for something to post that is just a cute baby kind of thing... but I don't seem to have any photos transferred off of the camera yet. Then I found this.

And half way through? You get to see the dog that I never, ever, ever thought I would miss after she left...and yet, do. Which is why she'll be back in May when Mom and Dad head off to the Canadian Rockies. On a related note, I'm sorry I didn't keep you all updated that they left the country again. Bad Blogger.

Planned Parenthood.

You know what?

Kids are a lot of stinking work.

This one?

Yeah. He's damn cute, but he's also a lot of work.

Yeah, her too. Not as much, but work.

Him too. Well, not as much work as he costs a lot to keep in video games.

That one up there? She's definitely a lot of work.

But this isn't a post about how important it is to me that I got to choose to have my children and all the work that raising them entails. It's a post instead about how Planned Parenthood is important to me. It is very important to me as a thirty (ahem, -ish) year old woman with NO health insurance. While my mother has advised me that if possible I should just skip the whole cancer experience- and that is certainly my goal- access to doctors for my girl parts seems like a good thing.

And I really hope Planned Parenthood is around when my children are older- both my sons and my daughters. Even if they don't feel comfortable speaking with me about sex and contraception (which, of course, I hope they are)- I hope there is a place like Planned Parenthood for them to go for information and birth control.

And so, I ask you... have you signed yet? Have you written your senator yet?

"Did you hear? The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding. They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk. It's time for you and me to stand with Planned Parenthood. Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill — and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it. "
