So I'm still here just over two weeks now waiting for the results. The paper work states that if by three weeks I don't receive the results I'm to call the clinic. I've had things disappear in the mail before so if it doesn't arrive next week I won't be all that surprised.
No new symptoms pointing towards pregnancy. Still all the same as last reported. I know its too early for me to call this one a wash.
Something happened last night. A close friend called me crying. Now I have to ask all of you out there to first think before you open your mouths and utter the first hurtful thing that comes out. I know that I do it too at times. Last night my friend got judged harshly for how she was handling a situation with one of her kids. Her youngest was bawling his eyes out at a nationwide chain store because she wouldn't buy him the expensive toy he wanted. We all know that toys are expensive. We all know that we can't start a routine of buying a toy every time we are out with the kid either because its not affordable and two the child will think even with bad behavior it should be rewarded.
Well someone got all up into my friend's face about her parenting. The obnoxious, judgmental female shopper told my friend she should remove herself and her children from the store. She even went as far as to follow my friend to her vehicle and take a photo of her license plate. This of course freaked the heck out of my friend.
I know my friend's kids. They are for the most part really well behaved but when tired, hungry, bored, or wanting something they aren't going to get they get annoying. We all did that as kids to our parents, even the best of us, the angels still got on our parents nerves.
Why the heck couldn't that woman stop and just think before she got into my friend's business? Do we now have nothing better to do than to sit in food courts at mega stores annoy those with children and tell them that they should be parenting? I don't know if this woman had children but if she did I wonder how bad of a mother she is herself. I wonder if she would like someone else putting their nose in her business when she is trying to correct her child?
This woman judged my friend without knowing her. My friend's spouse is deployed. My friend is both mom and dad to the kids right now. Its not easy being a single parent from what I've seen.
