It's official, my body is just whacked out.

I do not have gestational diabetes... again.

So, we're kinda back to square one on what the crap is going on with me. The thought now is that, perhaps, my body is just processing carbs straight into glucose..... and that's what is going on. Oy.

And just let me take a moment to whine and complain about the bruising on my inner elbows.... OUCH! And the lovely knot that has formed from the very last stick of the day yesterday.... all I can say is that it's a good thing that one was the last one! It hurt! The tech said that the needle was the same gauge as the butterfly needles that a different tech had been using on me... I think she lied to me.....
Needless to say, none of this has done anything for my needle phobia..... except to make it worse...

Little Boy

That really is a baby... and not an alien... At least that's what the doctor tells me. :-)

I found out this past Friday why I have been sooooooo inhumanly exhausted. I'm severely anemic. Great fun. So, I get to take 325mg of iron twice a day. And..... (this one is tons of laughs) although I passed the 1 hour glucose test that screens for gestational diabetes, my doc says that I am putting out glucose in levels that are freakin' him out. So, I get the great fun and dubious pleasure of going back for the 3 hour glucose test this coming Tuesday. Oh, the joy....

But, hopefully, that will tell us what in the world is going on with my whacked out body. I told my husband that I don't know why this surprised me. Nothing ever comes easy or without "issues" with me. The bum agreed.

It has been said that the American government is, 'of the people, by the people and for the people.'

But I say, Really? Is it really?

When is the last time you felt that the people who represented you really understood you? Knew where you were coming from? Felt the same struggles you feel?...

Or, actually gave a flying rat's hiney?

'My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of the Iraq regime has been completed.Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq This action will be complete within 30 days.

It is now time to begin the reckoning. Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom , Spain , Bulgaria , Australia , and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains every one not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening. Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

THEN EVERY YEAR THERE AFTER IT'll GO TO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM SO IT WONT GO BROKE IN 20 YEARS. The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine ? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France .

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.

On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France or maybe China .

I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France , Germany , and Russia . Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bonne chance, mezamies.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York

A special note to our neighbors.

Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not upset us for a change. Mexico is also on List 2 its president and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra thousand tanks and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put 'em? Yep, border security.

Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska- which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, 'darn tootin.'

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America It is time to eliminate homelessness in America .

To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.

God bless America .. Thank you and good night.'
