World Series (starts Wednesday) Yankees vs Phillies. Game on NYC. Game on.
Did you know ladybugs suck the joy right out of fall? In the last week it’s been like the Great Ladybug Convention of 2009 inside my house. Good thing I have a swiffer and I’m not afraid to use it.
Have you ever had the most awesome idea for blog post and then surf around and realize someone else already posted your awesome idea? It really sucks.
This just in – Stacy, The Random Cool Chick wants to meet up when she comes to Philly mid November. Ya! I’m up for it and I’ll even drag my kids along! That should be good for a blog post or two.
I was invited to a ladies neighborhood party on Friday. You know the ones, where the neighbors sell things like tupperware or baskets? This time it was organic health food and beauty products. I’m not good at these kind of things. I really don’t want to buy anything but the guilt factor takes over. (I’ve written about this before.) So I end up with 4 bottles of grapeseed oil, 3 boxes of organic oatmeal cookie mix and 2 bottles of zoom-zoom red nail polish all of which will be stuffed to the back of the cupboard behind the preservative laden box dinners and the dye filled fruit snacks. Your total will be $138.56 please. But neighbor relations are important to the suburban culture (so I hear.)
I shouldn’t whine. Everyone was very nice. Somehow I ended up spending the evening talking to the two pregnant moms and I had very little to say. I’m not sure they wanted to hear about my emergency surgery after Thor’s birth, the fact that I threw up for nine months straight or that I lost all the baby weight within two weeks. I played the wallflower card and pretended not to speak english.
When you eat salsa and chips and you run out of chips but you still have a lot of salsa leftover in the bowl, what is the correct thing to do? Eat just the salsa or get more chips? But then what if you take too many chips and then have no salsa. Do you just get more salsa? See this could be a never ending cycle.
H1N1 revisiteth? I sincerely hope not. That means no fever Thor you hear? And no ralphing chunks either.
Have you ever been inside a Toyota Prius? The techy stuff is really cool and all but it looks like it’s ten feet long when you’re trying to see out the front window. CP was considering this car for when he moves but I think we are crossing it off the list. Now if I can just convince him to get that Jetta…and trade me for the minivan…all my evil effort will have paid off.
Chick woke up at 6:30 on Sunday morning. I made her lay with me until 7 (where she sang to me and played with my hair while I tried to sleep) then I slapped her in front of Mickey Mouse with a sippy of water and some cereal and went back to bed. I jolted awake about 8:40. Oops. No fear. I had a headache the rest of the day from getting a lot more sleep than normal. So that bad mother/tv thing always bites you in the end.
Two weeks till Punkin Chunkin people – two weeks! I’m not sure if it’s just on local Comcast on Demand but if you go into On Demand, select History and Nature tv shows and the Science Channel there’s Punkin Chunkin shows. Awesome. I can’t wait. I hope my neighbor and her kids are really prepared for what we’ve invited them to. My favorite line from the show? The Chunkin machines were described as ‘the finest in Redneck engineering’ by one of the contestants. Love it.
Do you have a Random affliction? Know someone who does? Then send them over to Keely’s place. It’s better than therapy and way cheaper too. That’s www.theunmom.com
