About the title. I’ve been fighting something respiratory for more than 3 weeks now and it has exacerbated my asthma to the point where I am having a really hard time keeping food and liquids down because I’m coughing to the point of vomiting. It was bad enough last night that my mom was mobilizing to take me to the ER if I didn’t stop vomiting. Could y’all pray for my asthma to calm the heck down? I have asthma issues so rarely that this is scaring me.
**UPDATE** Sitting in the ER getting breathing treatments because I can’t catch my breath and the cough is making me vomit. Fun fun fun. The doctor just asked if I wanted hairball meds on my paws. I may or may not have glared at him.
What the fur?!?!?!? There was a thing on Facebook trends about Rush Limbaugh saying that the Obama administration is paying lesbians to go farm in red states. (I’m not linking to the story because I’d rather swallow ground glass than give a moron like him any page views.) Snopes.Com had this to say about it.
Anglicans and the rosary./strong> There is such a thing as the Anglican rosary and this is what is. (I have two in my purse.)
Ryan Lochte. The guy is a 32 year old frat boy. Are you really so surprised that he pulled that stunt in Rio?
The toothpaste story. I really some of the parents of my classmates in middle school had given this talk to their kids. I still have scars.
Spot on. Most of you reading this are also Kelly’s readers so you’ve seen this but… her blog post last Thursday/Friday was amazing and oh so true. It resonates with me as Daniel’s mom because I know his diagnoses have probably caused me more grief than they have caused him. He is a really happy kid and seems oblivious to the fact that he is not at the level that his neurotypical cousins and classmates are.
Ew! I was seeing pieces of this during commercials for the Olympics and finally remembered to look it up on Youtube.

And given that I’m choking from laughing so hard, maybe I shouldn’t be watching these…
