Seriously, where did this year go? Now I know what sleeping beauty felt like because I feel like I must have slept through a few months! Well, minus the evil witch, handsome prince …. and kisses!
There was so much stuff I planned to do this year, but none of it got done! I made new year resolutions, the normal stuff like losing weight, and set goals, and none of them got done! I’m not going back to school (one of my goals), I’m still eating Oreos on the reg, and please don’t get me started about the White Chocolate Raspberry pancakes we have at work!
On July 13, 2014, Conrad Roy committed suicide. The fact that he killed himself, although tragic, was not what made this case unique. Suicide is thought to be the 10th leading cause of death among Americans, with someone committing suicide once every twelve minutes. What made this case stand out and grab national attention was his long-distance girlfriends, 18 year old Michelle Carter, involvement. How could someone Conrad had only met a couple of times be held responsible for his suicide? The answer to that question would soon be found in Conrad Roy’s cellphone.
In the days that followed Conrad Roy’s suicide, Michelle Carter spent a great deal of time playing the grieving girlfriend. She contacted Conrad’s mother and sister, she posted on social media about her boyfriends death and organized a charity baseball game in her home town for Conrad. Everyone felt sorry for the young grieving girlfriend but that would quickly change.
Although it was a suicide, the police still had to do an investigation to make sure everything fell into place. What they found on his mobile phone shocked his family and friends. When they pulled phone records from the past conversations between the two, they found thousands of correspondence, and almost all of it depicted Michelle as the ringleader of her boyfriends suicide.

Fellow parents, I’ve hit a point in my parenting where I am now relying on children’s cartoons to get me through my emotional fits, has that happened to anyone else?
There is this little goody two-shoes tiger, you all probably know him from his debut on Mister Rogers Neighborhood. He was the tiger that lived in the clock, the little shy one? Remember? Meow …. I run at the sight of my own shadow …. Meow?
Well anyways ….. even if you don’t remember that’s okay because he is not the same anymore! Now he is an emotional toddler learning life Lessons and teaching them to other young’ins through songs!
My fellow parents, you know exactly what I’m talking about! Your Mom always seemed to know how to insert an embarrassing quote or saying into every conversation and you thought “Boy, I’ll never do that!”
Wrong wrong ding dong!
(That’s number one btw!)
So I thought it would be fun to take a minute and create a list of the weirdest things never thought I would say …. ya’ll ready?
Last Sunday came and went like any other Sunday, except this one brought with it a giant life lesson. By the end of the day I’d asked myself a question that everyone should be asking themselves and found the answer was far more simple then we allow it to be.
Are you tired of sitting in waiting rooms only to be seen for five minutes by an uninterested Doctor? Tired of talking to a Doctors back while they are looking at a computer screen the entire time? Do you want a Doctor who CARES?
Well then you need to come check out the newest medical office to hit the scene, Kayleigh’s Klinic!
This amazing klinic is staffed with caring professionals (my daughter and I) who want to take care of all your medical needs! Our office is open on weekends as well, with a second Doctor who will take your head right off!
We have served tens of patients already to date, and we’ve even had ourselfs a celebrity patient or two (Thanks Barbie) but I’m just name dropping now!
Our revolutionary care promises you will be well taken care of here with us. Some amazing care you can expect from our Doctors includes:
Having a thermometer stuck in your eye if you don’t open your mouth!
Don’t like shots …. no one cares!
If you cry or complain you will be given a bonk on the noggin and a binky!
Ever wondered if you bounce? You’ll know when you leave here, if you don’t!
The doctors will work feverishly to find out what ails you, they may even get into heated discussions about it and storm out of the room, but that’s just their genius at work!
Gone are the ways of the outdated reflex testing, here we hit one another with various parts of your body, let’s see if you flinch!
Do you like a good cuddle? Your going to get one!
We don’t believe in band-aids … Band-aids are for wimps! (Plus our janitor Man-Child uses them all, but never has any boo-boos … huh?)

Your privacy is our first priority …. but you will be stripped off all your clothing and left laying somewhere for days, we won’t have a clue where your clothing is, it just seems to disappear!
Apparently we don’t have any medicine here … the DOCTORS like to drink it all before work!
That is just a handful of the amazing things you can expect from us here at Kayleigh’s Klinic.
Were located just south of KitchenVille in down town LivingRoom! Just look for the haggard Mother standing in the yard crying.
Walk-ins are welcome, registrations is a breeze and checking – out, well … no-one ever checks out!
So come visit us the next time you have a medical emergency … we will kill ourselves trying not to kill you!
It’s embarrassing to admit, but I’ve really neglected my health over the course of my life. My children go to each and everyone of their schedualed visits and are healthy little Bugs, but I have never put much effort into my own health.
When I was younger it stemmed from a lack of health insurance and money! I couldn’t afford to sit in a Doctors office and be told to drink pleanty of fluids and rest for $200 dollars! So I put on my big girl pants and sucked through it …
Man-Child has a condition called Tourette’s. He doesn’t scream out in appropriate things like most people think …. THANK GOD! I have worked with people who do have that form of Tourette’s and I can honestly say that’s not something I would wish on my worst enemy! It’s a very embarrassing condition because you’re aware of what your doing but cannot stop it.
His form of Tourette’s is different. His ticks are more physical in nature and present themselves in the form of involuntary head and shoulder movements. He also clears his throat constantly and coughs. Sometimes it is very irritating when you talk to him because it takes him much longer to say something. His ideas get jumbled and come out in bouncy sentences because he gets nervous. The more aware he becomes of his ticks the worse they get.
See that Mumma bird up there? I imagine she is mad because one of her buttheads mentioned leaving the nest. She came home, overheard them talking about their plans to leave her and went crazy on them! I felt your pain Mumma!
Mumma – That’s it! I do and do for you little shits and this is the thanks I get! Instead of cleaning your nest room, you were making plans to leave? You did it now, I’m so not puking food into your mouths tonight! Now pluck your brothers feathers and get to bed!
