I’m the Winner at Shopping!

Saturday was a fun day spent in the Twin Cities area with my mom and my sister.  We started out at the thrift shop in the Sun Ray strip mall area.  After several hours spent there, in addition to a store next door that is going out of business, a stop at TJMaxx and at Gordmans, and I ended the day with something like 12 shirts, 6 skirts, 2 pairs of shoes, and a couple new pieces of fun spring/summer jewelry.  You can’t beat that!  Here is a picture of some of my Day of Shopping Booty! Huzzah!

Half-hearted Excuse About Why I Haven’t Posted Anything Recently

So, I lost my job last week.  It was totally unexpected, and I was really sad and angry for a couple days.  Needless to say, I got right back on the horse and started applying for new stuff that same night.  Ended up getting an interview the following day, and I’m starting somewhere new next week.  The office has a dog, so that’s very exciting.  It’s a small office for a local company owned by a husband and wife, and I’m incredibly thankful that it came about so quickly.  I’m hopeful that this will be my last job…but I’m not quite 30 (close, but no cigar), and who knows what the future will bring…there are a LOT of years ahead of me yet.
While I know I haven’t posted anything on here in a while, I have been doing an okay job of keeping stuff up on Twitter and Facebook.  My FB account is pretty private, but Twitter is out there for all to see…track me down if you want: @stampin_hannah
Here are some pictures of my tiny owl collection.  They make me happy (especially the one that glows and changes colors), so maybe they will also give you a little bit of happiness, too.

Anatomy of a coat hanger abortion

Dr. Jen Gunter

The coat hanger isn’t sterile. It isn’t even clean.

If the woman, or girl, is alone she thrusts it blindly upwards into the vagina. She’s hoping it will get into her uterus and do something. She may or may not know that to get into the uterus the coat hanger has to navigate the small opening in the cervix called the os.

A coat hanger is technically narrow enough to get through a pregnant cervical os, but the end is sharp not tapered so it can lacerate and perforate. Getting any instrument through the cervix safely also requires visualization and knowledge of the correct amount of force.

If she’s lucky enough to get the coat hanger through her cervix it could easily sail right through the back or side walls of the uterus. The uterine wall is soft and easily perforated with the wrong instrument or unskilled hands. If…

I’m Not Gonna Lie…It’s Been a Lazy Weekend

This is what I’ve been up to for a while tonight.  Between the Sims, three different Bingo apps, and the Duggars on Netflix, I’d have to say this has been one of the most unproductive weekends I’ve had in a long time.  There’s lots of stuff I could have gotten done tonight…but I just wasn’t in a tidying mood.
When you don’t have kids, and your landlord won’t let you have any animals, you’re still allowed to have those weekends, so I figure I’ll keep enjoying them while I can.  While kids are not in the near future, they’re going to happen at some point.
I have to admit, I wish the Sims Freeplay was a little more like the Sims for computer, but as a free app, I’m pretty impressed so far with the quality of the graphics, as well as with my tablet’s ability to keep up with everything.  Since it was free for us, and also on the cheaper end of the current tablet options, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  Verizon has done something good, for once!
Well, I’m starting to get notifications from the Sims that one of my tasks is done, so I’m gonna get back to that for now.  More posts to come tomorrow (hopefully)!
