Almost there

Time is absolutely flying by.  I had my baby shower on Friday and it was great.  I received many great gifts from my bedding and a play yard to really cute clothes and shoes.  I still need several more things (diapers, eek!) but I feel like we have a pretty good start thus far.

I am approaching my 36th week and nineth month of pregnancy.  I can’t believe my due date is less than five weeks away!  Robert still moves around like crazy except now he likes to kick on vital organs and my ribs.  It can be quite painful, but I’m still having fun.  Several stretch marks have popped up on the bottom of my stomach, unfortunately, but I suppose that’s not such a bad price to pay to finally get my little baby.

I think at my next appointment my doctor will start to check on my progress, i.e. if I’ve started to dialate yet.  I’m excited to find out where we’re at in this process.  I’ve been getting the feeling that Robert will come early but who knows.  I could be completely wrong on that, and I won’t be at all surprised if I am wrong.  I guess all we can do is wait and see.

You have GOT to be kidding me.

A man is being prosecuted for killing a cat in a drunken jealous rage.  If convicted, he could spend up to two years in prison.  This story is absolutely unbelievable to me.  If someone killed my beloved pet I would probably sue that person, but should he really go to jail?  Why is it that animals in our country have more rights than humans?  Animal rights activists are going to be all over this calling for this man’s prosecution and two year imprisonment because of this incident.  I feel badly for the cat, I really do.  It suffered unnecessary pain and harm, but I do not think this man deserves to have two years of his life taken away because he killed a CAT.  Maybe he should take some anger management classes and be forced to pay his ex-girlfriend in damages caused by this incident, but Prison?!  Really?  Come on!
