What was supposed to be a beautiful, relaxing weekend at home turned into a wet



It wasn't all bad though.

We made beautiful colored eggs

By melting crayons on hot eggs.

And we spent a little time outside enjoying the semi-warm day.

And dreaming of summer time fun.

Cold Snap

Sunday afternoon, I went to a cook out wearing capri pants and flip flops.

By Monday morning it was 30 degrees, snowing, and I had a cold.

I think the weather and my health are coincidental, but it just made for a lovely (read: shitty) beginning to the week.

For two days I wobbled between the couch and my bed, clutching my pillow and throat spray like life preservers.

Finally I am feeling better, but I have little energy. Today is a full day, with gym class, pottery class, grocery, violin practice, library, photo pick up, and dog training.

Plus I have to finish my city taxes which is always leads to heart palpations and a cold sweat.

Up next: Camping with 6-9 year olds. What every mom needs to know before braving the wild!

Who are you and what have you done with me?

I suggested to my husband that we purchase a Wii.


That is so totally not like me.

Needless to say, I'm laying here on the couch watching my family set up their "mii's".

What the horkin-hayballs got into me?

*Updated to add that my husband is jokingly saying that he now needs to ice his shoulder because he hurt himself playing baseball on the Wii.

My husband pulled our daughter's tooth tonight.

And I passed out.

Well, not completely out. Just couldn't hear, my vision went black, knees were weak and I nearly puked.

I really don't know why it happens. I was blaming it on my pregnancy since the first two times this happened, I was early in the pregnancy.

The first time it happened was when she split her lip and her chin on the window sill. The second time occurred with the pulling of the first baby tooth. And now this.

My guess is that I am a serious weakling when it comes to my children bleeding.

This is ridiculous. What if something happens to one of them while my husband is at work? I can just see it, my daughter will have to call 911 for me because I passed out and hit my head.

I'm so weak.

I think I need to do some mind strengthening just in case.

Yep, it's the Thin Mints. My god I could eat those all day, everyday.


I had a dream last night that NASA randomly called me up and needed me on a mission. The entire thing was so bizarre.

My daughter just told me that she had a dream about red bees.

It must have been the night for weird dreams.


We are off to visit family in the south today. I am entirely not thrilled, but mainly because of the drive.

I made the executive decision that we would drive down today and return tomorrow evening. A decision that my husband was quick to agree with.

Sunday will be a lovely day. Nothing but laying around reading, drinking coffee and relaxing.

(Now that I've said that, it will probably be insanely busy. But, whatever.)

Death of Me

We often have 'junk' food in our house. The grandparents, especially my husband's mother, send us home with little goody bags all the time.

Having it doesn't mean that we eat it.

More often than not, I put the stuff in a drawer and forget about it until weeks, sometimes months pass.

Then, I just end up throwing it all away.

As a matter of fact, yesterday I just threw away Halloween candy.

We don't buy candy, cookies, etc. from the store. I rarely make cookies at home (just threw away a batch of chocolate chip cookies I made 4 weeks ago that were fermenting in the cookie jar).

However, there is one thing I cannot have in the house, lest I eat excessive quantities. And much to my chagrin, we have an abundance of this every thing in the house right now....

Guess which ones are my favorite?

Finally, my hCG count is negative. Apparently that means it is less than 10.

We've decided to wait until after my birthday (7/19) to try again. There are many reasons. Most of them sound stupid, except to me.

I listened to The President speak this evening. He said that he waited to make a statement about the AIG bonuses until he knew what he was talking about.

That's something we could all use to learn. Don't speak on a subject until you know what the hell you are talking about.

I think I'm in love with the man.

And now I'm going to sleep.
