Bowl of Fuck

By M Davies   /     Jul 31, 2008  /     Mommyhood, The WTF File  /     0 Comment

When I brought home Owen from daycare he decided he was going to run and jump in the baby wading pool.  With his shoes on.  They are soaked all the way through.

In addition, apparently Gabby pooped on her shoes at daycare and in turn, daycare shoved them into a bag and sent them home instead of cleaning them with a baby wipe.

So, its crocs tomorrow.

For both of them.

I’m exhausted

By M Davies   /     Jul 30, 2008  /     Family, Mommyhood  /     0 Comment

This week has been super busy for me.  I’ve been trying to keep in touch with everyone, but I’ve been crashing out around 9pm each night from sheer exhaustion, and its only Wednesday. 

Today I went back and forth between Plymouth and Dallas 3 times.  My car was 3 of the little lines before E this morning.  I put 10 gallons of gas in (around 40 bucks).  It took me up to the big line before F (but not F).  I dropped off the kids came to work, then went back to Dallas to pick up Owen around 1 and brought him back down to Kingston for his appointment at 2.  I then took him back to Dallas after the appointment.  Then I came back to work in Larksville.  My car is now 1/2 Full or 1/2 Empty (whatever your cup of tea is).  Booo.  And now I’m going to have to go back up there at 5 again to pick both of them up.  I will be back on that line next to E again by tomorrow morning, I can assure you.

As I was saying, Owen was back at the urologist earlier.  His hydrocele/hydroceles (there may be more than one going on, OH JOY!) have not gotten any better or diminished at all since last visit.  When was that?  March?  So anyway, surgery is pretty much a guarantee at this point.  I just am not sure when.  Owen was scheduled for an ultrasound of his man parts tomorrow morning at 7:30.  The doctor wants to see exactly what’s going on in there before jumping into surgery.  He should have the results of that by Friday afternoon or Monday afternoon at the latest and then we are going from there.  I’ll keep you guys posted.  Happy Second Birthday Owen…Now have some surgery!  In addition to all of that fun stuff, Owen has a well visit at his pediatrician next week.  We love doctors!  Love them! 

Here we are in the examination room causing trouble:

If that isn’t enough nonsense to keep my mind occupied, we also are having a birthday party for Owen on Saturday afternoon, so I have 3 days to get my house in order before my family and the in-laws arrive. 

I’ve also been working on wedding invitations for my future sis-in-law.  Those are near completion (they are pretty elaborate and need to be put together) and my Mother-in-Law, future sis-in-law and others are showing up at my house tomorrow night to assemble these bad boys. 

Are we having fun yet?

In addition to my company coming tomorrow night, and Owen’s early ass dr. appt., it is also Hanover Township Recycling day.  That means I’ll be carting two ant-infested cans full of recycling down to my old house and picking the cans up after work.  Plus I still have to get or make cupcakes before Friday so I can take them to Owen’s daycare.  And I have to make potato salad, and dip, and marinara sauce for the meatballs.

Ok.  Its official.  We are now having fun.

I’m also waiting for a certain call from a certain place.  More on that when I get around to finishing my password protected blog entry that WordPress ate on me yesterday.

For not saving my Draft even though you said you did.  And then Internet Explorer just had to fucking crash, right?  I hate you, Windows Vista. 

I am going to punch a monitor right off of my desk. 

Password protected blog entry is going to have to wait until later this afternoon.

Suck of July

By M Davies   /     Jul 28, 2008  /     Annoyances, Family  /     1 Comment

July is starting to suck worse than May, but yet still not as bad as December in terms of the amount of money I have to spend on gifts for other people. As you know by reading this previous post, in the Month of May I have to buy a lot of presents for people.

This is my predicament right now.  Buying gifts.  Buying more gifts. 

I only started my job 3 weeks ago today.  Its a little difficult to get back on my feet after being out of work for so long, (9 weeks by my count), I’d love to wait until I feel like I’m on more stable financial footing before spending a ton of cash on buying gifts for people.  But in the real world, we all know that can’t happen.

Let’s see.  July.  July 4th was our family cookout, which was a lot of money in food and beverages.  Then July 16th was my Mom’s birthday, I still haven’t bought her anything, half of the reason being I don’t have tons of cash, but the other reason being I don’t know what to get for her.  The 19th was my parents wedding anniversary, which I didn’t get them anything for yet.  The 19th was also CJ’s wedding.  I should either buy something off of the registry or send cash, but I just don’t have it right now because. . . . The 20th was my future sis-in-law’s bridal shower which I had to buy a gift for.  Then this past weekend I had to buy a gift for another Shower I went to for one of Rich’s co-worker’s wife-to-be.  August 1st is Owen’s birthday, so I had to go and buy presents for him.  Plus I have to get a cake, balloons, and food for the small family party we are having for him on Sunday.  Oh and cupcakes for daycare.  I’m not making gift bags

I just feel like writing a sign on my back that says "PEOPLE, I AM NOT MADE OF MONEY".  It’s going to get worse before it gets better, because the two bridal shower’s we were at, we are going to the wedding as well, which = $$$$$$$$$

Blah.  Just.  Blah.
