Random Stuff

1. In less than a week I will be putting my toddlers into the car along with my mother and driving for 13 hours. Yeah, that is probably the worst idea I have ever had . . . . . . . .

2. I am driving to my high school reunion. That should be weird! I have great friends from high school, but to be honest I was looking at the Facebook list of people attending and I don't remember very many them. At all. I am so excited to see my girlfriends and two of them will be meeting the twins for the first time.

3. Ocean is really making me laugh these days. I was watching TV and he asked if he could watch with me. He watched really hard for about one minute, then he told me that "I not watch TV with mommy, mommy TV yucky, I go to Home Depot with Daddy." We were at a restaurant and Hubby asked what I wanted and I said I really wanted some booze. Osh yelled out "I have booze too!" Luckily, I have not yet been arrested for that. He was jumping on the couch and on Hubby and Hubby asked him not to jump on him (we have long since given up on asking them not to jump on the couch). Osh said "Why Daddy, you have a baby in you tummy?" Ha! Hilarious!

4. Pool season always shows me who got the good boob jobs and who got the cheap ones. When the boobs are 6 inches apart and on the side of your chest like fish eyes, you should probably see if you can get a refund.

5. My body is one big infected mess. I had that bacteria, now I have a UTI and one of my kidneys infected. I got a shot of antibiotics and now take 150 mg of antibiotics a day for 10 days. If that doesn't do the job, I will be doing hospital time. I think hospitals are disgusting and I hope that the meds will do the job because I don't want to spend time there. No thank you!

8. I go to bed pretty early these days. With all my infections and everything I am just beat. I have gotten addicted to internet debate boards. I read one and never participate, but damn! There are some crazy people out there. If feeds my drama llama big time. I don't prefer that kind of drama in real life, so I get my jollies reading about other people. Welfare queens, abortions, people who breastfeed until kids really don't need to be breastfeeding anymore. It's really interesting. If you are ever really bored you should look up "Baby Center Debate Team." You're welcome. Don't forget your popcorn.

7. I few weeks ago I was so tired and frustrated with my children. I was on my own because Hubby was in class and I had worked a long day and they were just driving me crazy. I got so upset and totally freaked out. I called Hubby to come home. I felt so terrible about it, the next night when I picked up the kids from daycare we walked to a park and had a picnic together. I just needed to remember that I'm not the worst mother ever and that we have fun together. We had a lovely time and I haven't had a meltdown since. I hate that feeling!





  1. It must be meltdown week. :)

    I agree about the boob jobs and hope you survive the 13 hours. You are nuts. I mean that in the nicest of ways.

  2. Pack plenty of clean snacks. We make 16 hr straight through drives often and my biggest advice is plenty o' snacks. We do not have a DVD player in the car, so we pack toys (be prepared for them to drop them. ALL on the floor and expect you to pick them up) and lots of clean food... nothing messy like bananas. more like bread, pretzels, bagels, cookies, etc.
    You can also pick up some new small toys and pack them in brown lunch bags. Put snacks in some brown bags, too. Then you can periodically toss them each a bag. Opening it kills some time and the novelty of a new toy will last u til the next rest stop.
    Leap Frog TAG readers are the fav toys for travel here, but they didn't get those until age 4. Your kids might be too young.
    Doodle pros are god for travel.

    Hope you have fun at the reunion. I've always enjoyed mine and Lee's (we went to high school together-he was 2 yrs ahead of me). Take lots of pictures - and hand your camera off and be sure to get in lots of pictures, too.

    So sorry to hear about all the antibiotics. :-(

    1. Man, type-os. "until". not text speak. "u til". And I am not married to Lee. :-)

  3. Have fun at the reunion! And safe travels.

    Online debates are interesting. :)

  4. Hey, 13 hours is crazy. We did a 16 hour drive when the twin were 10 months old BUT I figured it would be easier to drive during the night since they were used to sleeping those hours anyway and it worked out. I don't know if that's possible for you but I'm just putting it out there =)


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
