Monday Mourning

I ♥ Monday :-(

Unfortunately, there is no heat in the building resulting in this being the second day I've frozen. Clearly there has to be some kind of rule against working in the cold. Granted it is supposed to be in the 50's today, but it's not right now and I'm still cold! Also to add to the misfortune, since the holidays are over, everyone will be back in the office. I enjoyed the silence, but I guess it's time to move forward!

This weekend I went to an after Christmas party and got punk'd big time by my alleged friends! It was funny afterwards, but during I really didn't know what to think and it wasn't all that humorous to me! All in all it was a good time though and nice way to start the year. Squirt left yesterday so I have resumed my role of hermit crab foster parenting. They are pretty interesting little creatures. I talk to them, they come out, walk around a bit and then I put them back in their little home. It's a good relationship...definitely the easiest pets I've ever taken care of. Speaking of pets I got attacked by 110lbs of Sarge at 1am last night. He jumped on my bed, took my spot, hogged the covers and made everything hot thanks to his fur. Not a good nights sleep at all...I woke up every hour. Of course he jumped off the bed when it was time for me to get up and went back to sleep on the floor. Silly dog!

In the news this weekend John Travolta's son, Jett died at the age of 16. The exact cause of death has not been determined, but speculations are either Kawasaki Disease or the improper medical attention for autism. The Travolta's are Scientologist and as a part of their beliefs, they do not consume western medicine or have treatments. While it is not up to me to judge who or what anyone believes in, at some point is non-treatment for a child based on the parents beliefs deemed child abuse in the eyes of the state? I know that it is a touchy subject, but if his and the lives of so many other children could potentially be saved with common medication at what point does the parent have the right to deny life to that child? Should there be an age limit to which the child must receive proper medical attention? I really hope his death was not the result of something that could have simply been treated.

I wish you a nice WARMER Monday than I am having...
