I heard these two quotes from PJ O’Rourke on NPR the other morning. They made me smile.
Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we’re looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn’t test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
P. J. O’Rourke
There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.
P. J. O’Rourke
I also heard that he was born in Toledo, Ohio. I had no idea.
I’m sure you’ll all be happy to know that I am at the point where I seem to be able to eat anything I want! 🙂 I picked up a couple of the expensive Frozen Bento Boxes that I like from Trader Joes to celebrate. The only thing I haven’t tried yet is Mexican Food. I may do that next weekend.
It’s been a rough couple of days because:
1. my fridge died and had to suddenly go buy a new one and have it delivered (happy to be in the position that I could just go take care of it) Annoyance of finding places for food, and shopping for fridge and coping with delivery. It’s done now though
2. I have had a relapse of my Thoracic Outlet Syndrome symptoms. No one to blame but myself. I should have recognized the onset weeks ago and had a nice simple massage to fix it. Lots of stretching and pain pills and a massage scheduled for tomorrow that will surely help and cause so much soreness.
3. Had my first HDR Cylinder treatment yesterday. It was truly to gruesomely uncomfortable and creepy to describe, so I won’t! I did however get to meet a doctor in the practice that I had not previously met and I really really liked him, and I had the really fun nurses. When dealing with something that uncomfortable it was really a blessing..(Found out I am almost maxed out on Radiation so they dropped one of the treatments, which means Friday is my 2nd and LAST.)
4. I can’t stop shaking. I am so cold all the time. (My husband covers me up with blankets when I’m shaking. It’s nice to have someone tuck you in.) I am going to go post in my little group “Ask the Doctor” on facebook where my friend the Doctor will answer random questions and everyone chimes in with opinions. Such a fun little resource.
I leave you with this random photo from my phone. I was arranging pictures in a frame and snapped this picture to remember the order. The top left is my kids and I. The top right is My sister and I. The bottom left is me, then my sister. And the bottom right is my sister and her late husband Kevin, and my niece Allie.
