Are you loving how you're living

Is it treating you well Do you greet the early morning alone Are you leaving who is loving you In spite of it all Are you closing it down To get away from it all

I was born in America!

born with the fists of a saint
Way out of range

born with the fists of a cowboy
Home on the range

You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time.

Emotion: sadness/grief
Flavor: Pungent
Season: Fall
Color: White
Sound: Sssssssss

Breathing exercises and Nettle tea for me!

Waxing Gibbous

Who came up with that?
Hey, I like it!
Reminds me of gibbon monkeys
and the Brothers Gibb
Big goofy shining white
Expectant blob with a promise
Waning Gibbous sounds like a country singer name

Mueller Time


13 Russian Nationals indicted in Mueller investigation on charges related to meddling in US elections
The Internet Research Agency, operating out of St. Petersburg, was described in the indictment as a hub for a sophisticated operation designed to reach millions of Americans to disrupt the political process in the United States. Its annual budget was millions of dollars; its stated goal was to “spread distrust toward the candidates and the political system in general.” 
The goal of the Russian operation, which was dubbed the “translator project” and began in 2014 with a monthly budget of $1.25 million, was “information warfare against the United States,” the indictment alleges.  
-from NYT article.  This is where your money is going, dear True Russians.

xl Blue Persuasion

This meditation video kinda helped my throat chakra.  The blue and the font remind me of Bewitched and Disney Cinderella for some reason.  I really liked the silky blue light and the singing bowls.  Some of the words were good too, some of them a little unsettling.  Faith.  I have a hard time with that word, I guess because I relate it to religion.  Also, the, thoughts are reality and words are thoughts and words are reality deal really alerted my senses as I, of course, started thinking of Trump.  God!  Anyway, at one point in the video the words- Words create reality, Truth, Wisdom, something like that, I was thinking, what if the words that are creating reality are lies and stupidity?  This is dangerous to human health.  This must not go on any longer.  How can we stop this?

Thanks Donald Trump you fucked up my throat chakra!

Fuck the NRA

The NRA is a terrorist organization that is holding the US hostage.  The gun laws outweigh a citizen's right to live.  Fuck you.  BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS. CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM NOW.  NRA should be banned from funding our lawmakers.

"With this sort of firepower, the gunman didn’t even need to have good marksmanship or anything more than a basic understanding of his weapons. All he needed to do was pick up a loaded gun, point it toward the helpless people in the distance and pull the trigger until it was empty, discard the spent rifle and pick up another one."

From this article.

Bess Kalb responds to thoughts and prayers tweets from law makers funded by the NRA.  "God have mercy on your NRA-kept souls"

The certainty of more shootings from 2012

Why a Congressional Ban on Bump Stocks is unlikely from Oct 7, 2017.  A week after our worse mass shooting to date.

A mass shooting increases the number of enacted laws that loosen gun restrictions by 75 percent in states with Republican-controlled legislatures. We find no significant effect of mass shootings on laws enacted when there is a Democrat-controlled legislature.

From Mass shootings don't lead to inaction--The lead to loosening gun restrictions.

The Autopsies for the the Victims of the Las Vegas Mass Shooting.

We are averaging one school shooting every 60 hours in 2018

When is it going to stop?  
What are we going to do?

To those who solely focus on the 2nd amendment. You have the right to bear arms of 1791 when this amendment was written: Brown Bess, Muskets, Rifles and flintlock pistols. We must ban assault weapons. These are weapons of war.

day 2-deactivated

We are done. :(  It's a good thing, I know, but I can't help feeling a bit sad about it.  She asked to wurse about 1-2 hours before we normally wake up and I almost gave in because she asked so sweetly, but I thought it was closer to wake up time and said no.  She threw a little fit that made me feel not so bad about saying no.  She just turned her back towards me in disgust. :)
I can feel a spark of freedom, but right now I guess I need to mourn a little.  It's funny because I have been wanting this for the most part.  Especially since my anxiety or hormones or both have been uncontrollable and uncomfortable.  I keep thinking that maybe nursing is causing this feeling.  I guess we shall see, because it doesn't seem to be the copper IUD.
I keep trying to find relief in tinctures and tea, but I think I'm going nowhere with them.  Right now I am trying Ashwagandha, Reishi and Kava tea.  Oh and sage to dry up my milk. 

Crying over dried milk

What am I?
An old woman now?
No more babies, no more nursing
The factory is closed.
I'm crying over dried milk
just because
I'm crying over dried milk
cuz those days are done
Crying cuz the mid-life crisis has just begun
I can hold you and rock you, hold you and rock you
until you leave my nest
For now I will cry over my deactivated breasts.

It's time to pacify the pacifiers
Retire what made us all tired

Crying over dried milk
until my freedom soaks in

Galaxias Mamma

I love drinking these things

I love wursing

-Fio age 2.5, sweetly said a week before I take the thing she loves away.  :(

Sunday/Monday is the first night/day of no nursing since she was born.  We are done.  I'm kinda sad right now.
I know I will be happier once it sets in.

Don't fuck with Sara Moulton

She's a saint and I want to cry.

Dear Sara Moulton,  I love you.  I know there are plenty of these terrible tales that are far worse than yours, but to think that you encountered this pains me so much!  Not you!!!  You are right, "everybody has to say no this is not acceptable."  Your sweet smiling face is going to mean so much more to me now.  I can't believe you say fuck and did coke!  I know, your presentation makes you seem perfect and everything that is good in the world and you know what, it still fucking does.  I love you Sara Moulton.  Thank you for telling this story of yours.
