Yep. Doing that as much as he'll let me - he's pretty touchy. I'm lying on the floor next to him with my laptop and he's sleeping on a few of my old nightgowns that smell like home. He's on a heating pad on low since we have the A/C on (it's about 92 degrees Fahrenheit here in Chicago today). So far he's sleeping and breathing pretty easily. Oh my.
Thanks karlkat. I was actually just coming to tell you! It's something. They couldn't give her more as her prior record is clean. If she does "anything" again, she will face a more severe punishment. Know, though, that the monster is pregnant again, and will have to give birth in jail. As someone said, "It will be a long time before she experiences anything like a happy moment, again." I heard that the judge was annoyed that more people had appeared to express their outrage, than to the murder case of a 92 year old which was also taking place at the time. While he of course has a point, I continue to commend every single person who becomes a "voice of the voiceless", and pray that not one of them ever backs down!!! *hugs*
Karlkat, you are so much more than welcome for Marielle's candle. I always feel that they are such a small thing, in light of such a great loss. But I know in my heart that they see them. For Dexter, I agree with you that that @!$£%$ should get the maximum for her crimes. Somehow, I don't think that my heart would feel that any punishment was enough, but the fact that she has been officially labelled "Guilty", at least, to me, shows that someone cares and that maybe, someday, the punishment "will" be enough. Hugs, my friend. x
