Elsewhere On the Internet (and an Early Morning Story)

It’s 5:15 a.m. and I’m awake. I’ve been waking up at 4 recently, unable to go back to bed after my third bathroom trip of the night (thank you, childbirth) because by that time I’m no longer exhausted enough to drown out my darling husband’s snores with sleepiness.

Side note: Isn’t snoring the worst sound in the world? Ok, maybe the third worst, following nails on a chalkboard and cats in a blender. Not that I’ve ever heard cats in a blender. But I can imagine, and it’s not pretty.

Sometimes I can jam earplugs in and throw a pillow over my head and find a couple more hours of elusive rest. But I’ve had this cold recently, and the stuffy nose and the cough and poor tender head make me ache while I wait for the meds to kick in, and by the time they do … I’m pretty much awake.

By the time the clock hit five, I knew I was done, so I threw the covers off and headed down the hall to write this very post. The light was on. Huh. Strange. Stranger still was the sound of the TV. Ok, no longer strange.

Here’s what I found:

This little goober didn’t go to sleep until nearly eleven last night, even though she was put to bed before nine. It was the same old But I Need game, which (I’m pretty sure) children have played since the dawn of time. You know the one.

But I need a drink!

But I need to go potty!

But I need my night light!

But I need socks that don’t bother my feet!

But I need a hug!

But I need a different song on the ipod!

But I need to be tucked back in!

You get the idea. Anyway, my little non-sleeper was out in the living room watching TV. Which she is not allowed to do on school days. Apparently, she thought that rule only applied to afternoons and evenings, so she forced herself awake after six precious hours of sleep to enjoy some tunes.

New rule: No getting up until 6:30.

Except for Leif. If he wants to get up pre-crack of dawn and leave me to sleep in peace … I’d be ok with that. Love you, Honey!

So I wrote some stuff last week that I’d love for you to read. Click, read, comment, share – especially share. Word-of-mouth is where it’s at, baby. Plus, I really can’t afford fancy advertising. It’s ‘spensive.

The Occupy Wall Street goons are still on display. President Barack Obama feels their pain and understands their frustration. Iran thinks they’re swell. Iran also stones rape victims for ‘sexual immorality.’ As a general rule, I like not to agree with Iran on pretty much everything.

Obama called Mitt Romney a flip-flopping flip-flopper, which is completely true, of course. However, there’s this saying that come to mind about glass houses and throwing stones…

Priorities in Topeka are messed up, y’all. Social welfare programs and inflated benefits and pensions are not more important than legally protecting victims of domestic abuse.

Elsewhere On the Internet

I can barely believe it myself, but here is a Roundup post! I know, right? It hasn’t even been a whole month yet. I am hoping to make these weekly things, so that by the time I link you guys to something, it’s not horrendously out of date. For instance, it’s hardly news now that Texas Governor Rick Perry has entered the presidential race. But two months ago, it was big news!

Anyway.

I wrote some stuff last week that you should read. Then go tell your friends! Word of mouth is the best advertising, y’all.

Writing about Sharia is always fun. I get the best most interesting comments. Usually along the lines of me being a hater or Islamaphobe or something. I roll my eyes. Of course I’m a hater of any doctrine that instructs people to kill a rape victim for sexual impurity. In this particular case though, I give props to a young lady’s family for defying convention and not murdering their daughter.

Attorney General Eric Holder is either a liar or he’s incompetent. The end.

I wrote about the importance of strong missile defense in America. Here’s the bottom line: It’s mega important.

Some have likened the Occupy Wall Street squatters to the Tea Party. Hahahahahahaha! ~deep breath~ Hahahahahahahaha! Yeah, not so much.

The latest round of Obamacare mandates are guaranteed to raise the cost of health care. Who cares if the care is crappy as long as everyone gets has to wait six months for it?

And there’s the Week 3 Recap for Glee. The show wasn’t that bad (politically speaking) last week.

Happy reading!
