As I was entering my twenties and making the choice to go to college and not get knocked up and end up on welfare my favorite line when asked why I wasn't having babies is that they would be related to my family and after what it had done to me I would never put a child through that. When I was pregnant my sister in law kept saying things like 'I can't believe you would do this to me, who is Going to take care of my kids, You're messing everything up.'

I finally told my mom that I couldn't have kids because of a HEREDITARY thing I must have got from her.

That shut her up about the kids, and man did I get the 'good catholic' crap too. Aren't moms wonderful!!

It's funny, I remember that as the youngest daughter I have been free childcare for every niece and nephew, and now even their children. The thing is...these children, well mostly the adult one, still act as if they were raised by wolves.
I do want to have kids, but medically I haven't been able to carry full term. I guess part of the frustration is remebering her having told me if I had been a good catholic God would never have done this to me. Emergency room doctors just love hearing that line. Especially the one that impregnated me the first time.

I'm remembering my grandmother telling me that she was lucky, she would never have carpal tunnel because she only did the right things with her hands...raising children and cooking bread. Implying, of course, that I am not doing anything right as I am childless at 38 and have no desire to bake bread. Guess what??? She is 94 and was just diagnosed with carpal tunnel brought on by her age. Now, I don't particularly feel good about it but
DO want to just look at her, if she were still 90 telling me what a lousy grandaughter I am, and scream "In Your FACE!!!"
I, however, don't even type well enough to ever get carpal tunnel. No kids, no bread and lousy typing skills have saved me!
Good luck on your surgery though...my sister and mother have had the same surgery successfully.

With both wrists out of use for awhile, does Ezzie get some extra -- how should I put this -- "jerk work" to do? Or does nothing stand in the way of your pleasure?

Best wishes on your surgery! Tell that doctor to splash a little vodka into your IV, just to keep things interesting.

Hence the reason for the apple strudel! I get it now! Bake while you can! lol! I'm sure I should be having the same surgery, but I avoid the doctor at all costs-especially now that we have no health insurance...

I wish you best of luck and fast recovery! We'll need another martini party when you get back!
