Our Bethany has been much fussier than normal.  She demonstrated this for Bob Doman with NACD today.  I'm praying for a resolution to the problem since we don't know what is causing her misery.  She did have a seizure on the way home and was calm after that.  I'm wondering if her medications are part of the problem--one seizure medication causes anxiety.  Maybe I will try adjusting them again.
Life with a special needs young person is exhausting at times!  On the plus side, she is now letting me know when she wants to go to bed, and that is often around 9pm.  She will stand in front of me and fuss until I put her in bed.  : )  I wish she could talk.

There are just too many examples of government overreach.  This one is regarding the Gibson Guitar company which has been in business since the 1800's.  It is one of the few companies hiring people, but it has the misfortune to be in Tennessee which is a "right to work" state.  Obviously, the company has not bribed the right people in Washington.  Sometimes I just want to scream.

Sad update to Phonehenge:  the judge is insisting that Phonehenge be torn down, so the building was demolished yesterday.  The judge delayed sentencing of Kim Fahey until September.  His crime?  Building a unique building without getting the proper building permits.  This was after he had attempted to get permits several times and the department had lost them twice.

He probably won't go to jail since he is tearing the building down, but he could have received a six year sentence.  This man has never been in trouble with the law--how is justice served and how are property rights protected?

It seems to me that our government is too big at both the county and federal level.

And today I read yet another example of government overreach.  Is this really what government officials should be doing?  Why?
