I didn't post yesterday.  It wasn't because I ran out of steam, or had nothing good to say.  In fact, yesterday I could have played along with Emmy and KMama in their meme for Proud Mommy Moments!  But I was in the middle of a medical mess.  I still kind of am.  So today, instead of the usual Friday Confessional with Mamarazzi, I am going to drop an F-Bomb.  This was something Mimi over at Living in France used to do.  Whether she does it or not still does not matter.  She is hilarious and you should visit her(along with all the other fabulous ladies I have mentioned!)  And now onto my rant explanation.
