Today is one of those days at work where all the crazies, the problem patients and demanding patients all decided to come/call at the same time. I’m ready to throw some pill bottles up in the air and say a nice big FU to the next person who gives me shit.

Today in “vaccinate your children or I will throw you into a fire” news:
Measles cases are the highest they’ve been since the disease was eradicated from the US in 2000. So why are parents choosing not to vaccinate? Find out the facts in NOVA's “Vaccines - Calling the Shots”, airing on PBS tonight (10 September) at 9pm ET. It's one of the best explanations we've seen of the science behind vaccines.

I watched this pbs doc yesterday. I enjoyed it, it was informative and did not gloss over some of the cons of vaccination.  But really, vaccinate yo kids please.  The benefits far outweigh the risks.

One of the girls that works at this small medical clinic where I work came by and ranted to us about her employers. The clinic is owned by the doctor and her husband (who is not a doctor btw). She was telling us how stressed out she was because they keep hiring new people that they expect her to train and monitor. And when those new people make mistakes she gets yelled at. We asked what happened to their regular girl and it turns out she quit. Because the doctors husband had been constantly sexually harassing her. It had gotten so bad that she took legal action against the clinic and a court order to force the husband to stay in his office while she was at work. But his wife kept forcing her to go in his office to retrieve papers and shit because he “wasn’t going to bite”. She left work crying everyday and decided to quit rather than deal with the doc and her husband. Ugh hearing all that made me soooo fucking angry!! I just want to punch that man in the balls and smack some sense into his wife. Your husband is sexually harassing a young girl and all you can do is force her to continually be in his presence? And say he won’t bite? I wish I could do something but what can you do? I guess the best I can do is make sure my daughter understands it’s not okay to let stuff like that ever happen and teach her to fight like HELL if it does.

Some days I feel like I have this parenting shit DOWN. I manage to eat despite baby being clingy, I put baby down for decent naps, I take her to the park, she goes to sleep and I spend between 730 and 1130 getting all my chores and relaxing done. BAM, super mom achievement UNLOCKED.

But then there’s the days where lunch is a drumstick (the ice cream), the baby wants to be stuck like a booger to ME only, I accidentally let her eat grass at the park because I was tired and just wanted to see what was going on on the internets, baby doesn’t want to nap, and I feel like a terrible mother because I was soo tired and just wanted to zone out online but I couldn’t cuz I felt guilty of not taking advantage of this precious baby time.

Ugh, today was a nice mix of both of those kind of days. And yes, I did have a drumstick for lunch. LAY OFF ME I WAS STARVING!

But really, there’s something awe-inspiringly beautiful about the “Inner Life of the Cell.” Check it out here. And with narration (in case you’re not a cellular biologist).

Oh my this is the most interesting thing I’ve seen all day
