Sloth Sunday

Natural Science Center of GreensboroSaturday turned out to be a very interesting and fun day! I didn’t quite get my 9 miles in, as broadcast.  But I did do 7, which is 7 more than sitting on the couch.  So I am satisfied with that.

Then I steam cleaned the upstairs carpets. It is a twice-a-year endeavor and I have gotten rather efficient at it.  I was done in about 45 minutes.

Michael had mentioned that he wanted to see the Titanic Exhibit at the Natural Science Center before it left in Jan.  SO not my thing.  But he does lots of things I want to do so I went along as a good sport.  The exhibit was so-so (to me) but there was more!

WHO KNEW that the Science Center was also a sort of mini-zoo!  I can spend hours watching animals (hello, Animal Kingdom) and they had tigers, meerkats, wolves (that had puppies), monkeys, sea otters and a petting zoo.

And you know I had to find out about volunteer opportunities.  Volunteer’s are taught had to handle the smaller animals (rabbits, armadillo’s, etc) and I would never pass up an opportunity to play with some animals (insert joke here).

Today we are back to Sloth Sunday.  Which really means 3 loads of laundry and errands.  I am out of carrots.  And I am bound and determined to make chocolate souffles later.

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.
