Once again, I am facing a long weekend. My son, though, has his very first Karate class in the morning. He is headed to the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville. I am pretty excited because he is taking from a dear friend of mine.
My baby has a big head. Literally. Off the charts, over 100th percentile. His head circumference line on the measurement chart goes almost straight up. I may be a twisted mother, but I think it is funny. Partially because I know that his head looks fine in proportion to the rest of him and partially because it is my fault. Honest. His pediatrician measured my head. Then she said “Yup. It’s you.” Ummm, thanks? Anyone remember Ed and Bev Bighead? Yeah.
Austin and I were talking yesterday about archeology. I began to wonder at what point there will be nothing left to find. Earth is finite. Eventually, I think there would HAVE to be no more new things to find. Maybe not for a long, long, LONG time, but logically, it makes sense. It was a weird thought to have, though.
I am mad about the current situation in Washington. Why can’t people see past party lines and just do what is in the best interest of the people? SERIOUSLY? Our government might shut down? It is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. Now, I don’t claim to study politics. In fact, I usually claim not to. I do not understand the stubbornness of opposing something based on personal beliefs instead of the good of the people they are supposed to represent. I don’t understand saying “Yeah, we will go with what you say, as long as you make X budget cuts in X areas…oh? You did that? Yeah. Never mind. We aren’t going to go with what you say, even though you compromised and met us in the middle, exactly as we asked. APRIL FOOLS!” Shutting down the government? Worst. April. Fools. Joke. Ever. I can’t imagine what it must be like to fight tooth and nail against opposition that is there for opposition’s sake, no matter what you are fighting for. I can’t imagine having every thing you want to accomplish fought against simply to make a point. Simply to “put someone in their place” as though it was necessary. It makes me angry. This is politics, not Hollywood.
Ok…enough ranting. I need to sleep, but first I am going to enjoy watching Merlin.
