Last night, I tweeted that I was sitting in the bathroom, wrapped in a towel, watching a documentary on Chinese adoption, and bawling my eyes out. I then mentioned that my sanity was "now in question". On their own crying over Chinese adoptions or being wrapped in a towel or sitting in the bathroom don't really equal insanity. It's the combination of the three. Not to mention, my hair was also wet and sticking out, and well, I just looked like a crazy woman.
I haven't finished the documentary, but y'all it just broke my heart. Baby girls are aborted (read killed) or abandoned or murdered after birth just for being girls. China has a one child per family policy, and boys are preferable. Nice huh? The thing is, I knew all this, but this documentary just reinforced what I already knew. One thing that I found interesting was that the adoptive couples had waited "over a year" for their babies, and they made it sound like an eternity. As of today, the wait for a child in China is up to six years. When I'm tempted to complain about Bulgaria, I look at that and realize it's not so bad.
On to lighter topics. We have Netflix, and I like watching shows/movies while I'm doing stuff around the house. Y'all I tried to like "Mad Men". Everyone watches it and goes on and on about it. I watched almost all of Season 1, but I just can't find any redeeming qualities. I know a lot of people love it, and I'm not judging. But the cheating, lying, sex, and constant drinking are just too much for me. I find the whole show sad and depressing. Which is why I'm looking for something else and watching documentaries on adoption in China. Any suggestions on shows that are a little less . . . well you know just a little less everything?
We had a great weekend. On Saturday, we went to Thump parade, swam and hung out with family, and then headed back to the Thump for a while
and almost melted in a pool of sweat. I forgot my camera so yeah no pics. Yesterday, it was church and lunch followed by a quiet afternoon at home.
It's gotten so hot that I'm being forced to run inside. In the North, winter drives people indoors, and in the South, summer does it. We're looking 100+ temps everyday this week. Ahhhh, summer in Texas . . . thank the good Lord for air conditioning!
Have a fabulous Monday everyone. Stay cool!
