There's gotta be a law....

I awoke this morning to some horrible doses of reality.

1. I am officially IN my 30's. Last year I was 30 but this year I am IN my 30's, and I am not sure how I feel about that.

2. This one is more devastating. I picked up the newspaper and the front page story horrified me (it's never a feel good story on the front page anymore). A woman who shot herself in the stomach (the day she started having contractions) with the intent to kill the fetus, excuse me, her baby, will NOT be going before a jury! You can read the whole story here. The reason she won't be going to court is due to the wording of the law they were using to charge her. Apparently it doesn't apply to an expecting mother. I am OUTRAGED that a woman can on the day she is to deliver take a gun to her belly and it not be called flat out murder. In today's world expectant mothers have such a tough job keeping that baby safe from all the weirdo's out there hurting them to take the babies. Now the babies have to fear their own mother may hurt them before they even get to take their first breath. Not that a mother should hurt them at any point in time but ya get what I mean. Then to not even see the mother be punished by law......GGGGGRRRRRRRR this make me fuming mad!

I had to vent and now I am off to try and salvage some of my morning and make it a happy day.
