A list, because today starts another adventure in single-parenting (thank god only until Wednesday afternoon) and I can’t spare the effort to make narratives out of these:
This makes me sad. Not only because 41 countries in the world have better infant mortality rates than we do, but that so many countries are struggling with this problem. It has been shown again and again that the health of the mother, the education level of the mother, and the mother’s access to trained birth attendants are key to an infant’s chances of survival, but still mothers (and women in general) are treated as an afterthought in so many of these countries. There is so much reform that needs to be done in the world, but here is what I am passionate about, so you all get to hear about it again.
Nooooooooooooooooooooo. *shudder* Seriously, as if I needed one more thing to lay awake at night thinking of.
Our day started at 4am. I do not win at being patient, nice, or chipper when I am tired. In fact, I lose at that.
I have yoga today, and I think I may fall asleep but I don’t care. I neeeeed it.
