Regarding: Love Your Enemies

I am not at all religious and most know I have barely turned the page of a Bible, but I do know how to Google.  And it was Matthew that said “love your enemy” and that is exactly what I did yesterday.

We are a house divided.  And that becomes even more glaringly apparently.  In Nov, during elections.  And in Sept/Oct, during playoff baseball.  How is he even a Yankee’s fan anyway?  He grew up in Virginia.

At 8:30, Michael commented at how fast the game was going, being in the 6th inning.  SSSHHHHH.  Extra innings started around 9:45.  And at about 11:30 I had made it (and dragged Michael along with me) to the top of the 14th.  McDonald singled.  I seem to recall that Ortiz got him over to 2nd.  Scutaro walked.  And then Ellsbury.  Ellsbury had already hit two homers in the first game of the doubleheader (a loss) and this game was EVEN more important since the Rays had won as well.  And Ellsbury came through for us again. with a 3-run Homerun with 2 outs.

Michael was gracious.  And mostly asleep.  And I turned it off with the faith that Ellsbury’s 3-run shot in the top of the 14th was enough to secure the win.  Thank god I was right.

Those people with Carolina Duke House Divided stickers can kiss my ass.  They have NO idea what it feels like to live in a house divided for 162 games a year.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. And well, you and I have managed to be friends all these years. lol It’s difficult living with someone who is a fan of the biggest rival of your team. I’m a NY Rangers fan and Charlie was a NY Islanders fan. And well being a Yankee fan, some of my best friends are Sox fans. We manage a good-natured ribbing…
