Via my friend Nick: Not what you want staring back at you during your kid’s band concert.
S#it My Friends See....
From my friend Rob who spotted this fabulous rig while driving this weekend north of Los Angeles. The best part??? The bumper sticker “Vegetarians Taste Better”
"Prepare For Landing"
The Scene: A conversation with my 4 year old during the "flight attendants prepare for landing" phase of our flight.
Me: I need to tighten your seatbelt we are about to land.
Son: (annoyed & pushed my arm away) Moooom!! No.
Me: The pilot said it could be bumpy, I need to protect you as we go down.
Son (screams): WE ARE GOING DOWN? THAT'S AWESOME!!!
The Take Away: I have to admit this was (kind of) funny, but probably not so much for the dude sitting front of us. Perhaps that's because my kid was kicking his seat half the flight... :(
Random Things I spot on my Commute To Work:
Pediatrician + Drug Coupon = Lesson Learned
Like so many families with children this time of year (Winter/Spring Flu Season), I spend quite a bit of time at the pediatricians office. Most of the time it’s pretty routine: bring my sick kid into the doctor’s office; the doctor checks his lungs, eyes, ears, nose and throat; if there is sign of infection, she will prescribe an antibiotic(s) and then send us on our way. On...
BREAKING NEWS: WE WILL BE RADIATED TO HELL IN 3...
I just logged onto Huffington Post and apparently, come this summer, we are all FUCKED! According to this scary article, the US will be radiated to hell and back before the Fall. Now, not only does this news have me rethinking my request to my husband tonight to consider having just one more baby (the result of holding a 4 month old boy today at work), but I’m now also rethinking my...
HUSBAND "FAN" MAIL
Dear Anonymous, I got home last night from work to find your mail in our mail box. You obviously took the time to track down my husband to our home address, but unfortunately you didn’t leave a return address (or give your name). So hence, the blog post. I want to thank you for the encouraging words. However, you should know that Jesus has loved Pete for 40+ years, even during his time...
A pregnancy reality check....
When I saw the photo of Jessica Simpson in the red dress last week, I immediately thought day’um!! Simpson reminded me of ME when I was pregnant: MASSIVE, swollen and uncomfortable. Basically, she too is all tummy and boobies (yes, I said boobies). And then I saw her Elle Magazine cover today. Yes, that Simpson looks NOTHING like the pregnant me. As I stare at this flawless photo,...
GAS STATIONS GOUGING YOUR DEBIT CARD
It appears there is a new way that gas stations are gouging customers when they fill up. And I’m not talking about near record gas prices, but rather when you use your debit card to fill up at the pump. Did you know that many gas stations are starting to charge a “hold” on your checking account to make sure you have the funds to cover the purchase? This happened to my mom...
