    It’s the fact that legally the relationship outside the bedroom is not allowed to be equal that makes it need to be “pushed.” Just like African Americans had to “push” their way into the same schools and “push” for voting rights. If I could be banned from the hospital room of the person who has shared my bed for decades when someone else in the state would have rights of a spouse just because they present as a couple (common law states) I’d feel the urge to “push.” And because I have seen what it means for a disabled person to have the person they chose have automatic, unquestioned rights with my parents (mother paraplegic with dementia) I cannot stand by and let people be left alone because some state has the gall to say “leave it in the bedroom and don’t bother us with it while we ignore that life happens outside it”

    Somebody help me- I’m in Iowa. They’ll be here (formal, captive-audience announcement or not) until after the Caucuses. Then I’m right on the border so see all the ads for Illinois’ primaries with who’s left… do what you will your head gets filled with droppings… er… stump speech quotes

    I admit I was bored this week. I also was, for the 5th time this winter, sick, to the point where the world is your bed and the couch but you feel too bad to sleep and have trouble concentrating on the TV and your books, and had been stuck there for a few days.

    And forget about it the next day

    Spelt is the ancestor of wheat, close to it genetically. Slightly less gluten, but still not usable by those of us with Celiac Disease

    I believe it’s only the version with the required lamps that’s bi-monthly, and other variations with different requirements on other days. Or there would be no lamps left.

    a lot of it is what is added by the body to carry the child (or children) and takes a while to reabsorb, much less the weight as in fat that is also necessary

    Dr Oz also suggests splitting a multivitamin in 2, taking half with breakfast and half with supper, so the vitamins you missed are in your system whenever needed. Which (having been raised by a guy with a Ph.D in biochemistry, the branch that studies the things that make the body work) is just about the only piece of advice I use from him. On days when I know I did well dietarily will split it again, take a quarter at a time

    We’ve only had 1 dog who played fetch, in all our histories with them. Which is why I have no clue why the ball ended up in the basket when we got the new puppy stuff. We were in the aisle, her tucked away in her puppy kennel as we got the fun stuff we’d waited to get until we actually found her and I turn around and start to say “there’s a collie!” and the woman who trained her started to explain about Shelties and I explain it was just that he looked big because our Sheltie had come home that day. But the ball came home, and the first time someone threw it she ran after it, looked at him, and apparently realized if she took it back she could run after it again. She believes love is shown by food and by throwing, and so professional pitchers must, to her, have big hearts

    People need to be bored. Every now and then. Gives the mind space to rest and start putting ideas together without what we’re “doing” getting in the way. A mindless task works, or meditation, or other things, or just admitting you’re between things and are going to wait out the spell before the doctor calls you in and not get out the smart phone or read about what was going on in the news 6 months ago in the waiting room magazines
