When Shoes Attack

Is it just me or do they look like they're starting to organize?

Currently laying by my back door. All Spiderman's.

Did you know Old Navy made yoga pants?
No? They DO and they're AWESOME! I recently purchased two pairs and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They're super comfy and I think they're amazing because my butt looks smaller. And cute. I should only wear them from now on.
Plus they have a fun slogan to go with them.
Goga. I'm not sure what it means....but if it makes my butt smaller I love it.
Go and get yourself a pair and let me know what you think of them.
Go right now.

I'll wait.

There IS Hope....

Today Spiderman and I had an appointment with a fertility specialist. I don't really want to share too much right now, but I'm hopeful.

We'll just have to see what happens.

Deeply Flawed

Do you ever feel like you've become the worst possible version of yourself?
The meanest, cattiest, rudest, bossiest, most selfish version?
Sometimes I stop and listen to myself or see how I'm behaving and I instantly regret it. I'm embarrassed and spend days repeatedly beating myself up about it.
I guess the ideal thing would be to stop myself before I do and say these things right? But most of the time when I'm like this, I don't even realize it. I'm just grumpy, or not feeling well or just feeling like a huge bitch. Like this weekend. I had a migraine for several days and was hormonal. Several times I caught myself being just awful.
I wish I could say that I was perfect and never lost my temper and never said or thought a mean thing in my life...a saint if you will. I don't really foresee that happening anytime soon.
I have less of a problem accepting the faults of others than I do my own. I wonder what that says about me? The only thing I can do, I guess, is try better tomorrow because "tomorrow is another day with no mistakes in it....yet." (from Anne of Green Gables)

This Shouldn't Be So Stressful...

But it is. I'm making a sweater for knitting class and I'm hugely behind. I originally took the class to help me relax, but it's having the opposite effect. My house is a mess because all my spare time is spent trying to knit furiously.

I actually shouldn't even be blogging.

I'll blog more when I've caught up!

I'd Like to Thank The Acadamy

I was given the Honest Scrap award by Mimi today. The object is to tell 10 scraps of information about yourself and pass the award along.

  1. I am afraid of large dogs. I don't know why.
  2. While I am primarily right handed, I am left hand dominate in several activities.
  3. My favorite color is blue.
  4. I took knitting classes to help me relax and it's only stressing me out more.
  5. I had a massage last Friday that left bruises all over my body. I'm delicate like a peach apparently.
  6. I have a black thumb but keep trying to grow things anyway.
  7. I have a short attention span and get distracted easily.
  8. I was raised Catholic, but am not sure 100% what I believe.
  9. I have a quick temper.
  10. One of my favorite things is to have a hot bath and then climb into a bed made with fresh sheets.

That was fun. I now pass this award on to 3 bloggy friends.

I'm curious to see what your list is.

They Just Let Anyone Have Kids Don't They?

Did anyone else witness child abuse on television last night? I'm referring to the interview with the mother of the octuplets. There were SO many things about that interview that bothered/angered me that I feel that I have to make a list.
  1. 14 children? And no job?? And no partner???
  2. As someone in the medical field I feel that the fertility Dr. should be held accountable. I mean, it's irresponsible to let her have that many kids that she cannot take care of.
  3. But wait, she'll be able to take care of them once she receives her psychology. Good luck with that one, lady.
  4. She seemed a little obsessive about having children so she could have people to love her. Maybe you should have to take a psych test before you can have that many children. It's just a thought.
  5. People are NOT supposed to have litters of babies. It's not healthy or safe for the babies to be in there with 7 others. 8 babies all vying for limited resources. They will all grow up to have problems. Respiratory, developmental, cerebral palsy...etc. As a parent if you can possibly avoid the risk of having your child born with issues shouldn't you do it? It's selfish and irresponsible.
  6. She didn't seem to give a crap about what any of the children wanted, or what was best for them, just what SHE wanted. When they interviewed her other children, they didn't seem thrilled to have 8 new brothers and sisters to compete with for mommy's attention. Kids aren't stupid you know. They seemed to have a better grip on reality than the mom did.
  7. She said she had invitro because of her advanced age of 25. 25?? I'm ancient then.
  8. This crazy chick has 14 kids and I can't manage to be blessed with one? Does this seem fair?
  9. And finally....she looked like she had her lips done. It was annoying, because if she did shouldn't she be saving that money for all those damn kids?

Did any of you see the interview and if so, what did you think?

Just Plain Crazy

Today was my first day back from vacation after nine days off. It was not pleasant. I don't know if it's the weather, a full moon, or what but everyone's flippin' nuts today. Patients, family members, co workers.....all crazy today. Is it just me or are you finding crazy people today too?
Spiderman sent me this video because yesterday I was watching Rock of Love Bus. I thought I'd share it with you. It's pretty humorous and goes with my theme of crazy today.

Remind Me Never To Get Old....

Today I took my grandmother to the doctor and then grocery shopping. It was a big day out for her. Grocery shopping for my grandma is an all day event. She was actually a little mad at me because she likes to go to multiple stores to compare the prices of meat. We stopped at the local discount grocery store because she told me that she had "no food". This amazes me because
  1. my sister is temporarily living with her and does most of the grocery shopping. She even works at the bank located inside this grocery store.
  2. later when we were putting away the bags and bags of food she purchased, we couldn't even find room for all her stuff. The freezer in the basement was completely full and her cabinets were overflowing. What is she stocking up for the Apocalypse?

We stopped to visit my sister at the bank while we were there. She also added a few things to the shopping list. When I pick up the requested potato chips, my grandma says that "she never buys those" but insisted that we get two bags because they're the best. Several times she discovered something on her list that was in an aisle we had already passed up. When I told her I would go back for them she sighed saying "nevermind, I guess I can do without them." (I did go back for many of the things she wanted) She also kept apologizing profusely for taking up my time and for me to not get angry with her. I was constantly reassuring her that I was on vacation, had set the day aside for her, and had absolutely nothing else but a nap planned for the day. She also kept telling me that she hadn't been out of the house since Christmas. This cracked me up because I know for a fact that she has to go to her doctors appointments once a week for a lab draw and my mother has taken her to Walmart several times before she left for Mexico. She is such a drama queen. At least I know where my melodramatic tendencies come from.

It was an exhausting day and I really need a nap.

The Most Awesomest Cake in the World

Happy Birthday to ME!
(I may even share)

Thirty One

Today is my birthday. I'm officially into my thirties now. Sometimes I wonder "How did I get here? Didn't I just turn 18?" It blows my mind how fast time goes.
My mother wrote a lovely post for me and you can go here to read it complete with baby picture and all.
Spiderman got me a gift certificate for a massage and a pedicure. I wanted to use them today, but woke up to piles and piles of snow. I want to make a cake, but didn't have eggs so I had to go to Walmart.
I don't think I've ever seen the Walmart parking lot this empty. I was one of maybe five people in the store. I have to say I really enjoyed that part. Walmart is usually crammed with people. It's one of the many reasons I hate going there.
My sister came over and we went out to lunch. Here she is by a huge pile of snow at the foot of my driveway. As we drove through town I snapped some pictures.

Good luck finding my newspaper on the porch. I think I'll stay inside for the rest of the day and make my cake.

I had intended to leave the house today. Really I did.

Then the blizzard happened.

But I kept myself busy with the computer. I added friends to my facebook and joined Blogher and Twitter.

I also found this cool video. Take a look. I have it on my IPod.


Feeling somewhat better today. Actually going to leave the house.
Since I'm still not 100%, I can't manage two whole posts today but I did post over here . Go on over and read it.

Full of Snot

I'm on vacation this week. Nine whole days (if you count the weekends) that I do not have to be at work. And what am I doing on my fabulous vacation? I have a head cold. Awesome isn't it? My head weighs 300 lbs and I can't breathe through my nose at all. I've used several boxes of tissue already.
For the past few days I've been laying on the couch in sweat pants and watching crap TV. See, there are benefits to being sick. I just hope that I feel better tomorrow. I hate to waste a whole vacation.
