Monkey see, monkey do

Well Laura did a “Random Wednesday” post today and sh’e s cool, so I will too!  Here goes:


The weather outside is just about as perfect as you can get.  Eighty degrees, nice gentle breeze, sunny skies…and I’m stuck here in my office.  Figures.


I found out today that my son has to get SIX teeth cut out.  UGH!  He has a very small mouth (obviously not inherited from me) and too many teeth, so the dentist wants to send him to an oral surgeon to have all of them done at once.  I wonder how much THAT’S going to cost me?!  =(  Poor kid.


Still looking for a new car.  We’ve gone from looking at $36k cars to $26k to $16k cars now because all of our money is going to be in my son’s mouth.


Eye is still twitching.  I’ll let you know if it stops (cause I’m sure you are on the edge of your seat wondering!).


Did another 2 mile walk last night and I’m still sore from the push ups I did on Monday.  I might try to do some more tonight, or I might not.  Who knows?


Why does it take an hour and a half to get 3 kids to bed?  Really it’s just 2 kids because my son pretty much gets himself to bed (he should, he’s 11), but the girls?  Takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r!!!


Here’s a little something you may not know about me:  I can belch like a teenage boy. I don’t share this talent with many people for obvious reasons, but my family gets treated to a wall-shaker every now and then. 


I can’t believe I just told you that.


I am getting some funky new glasses on Friday – I wear contacts mostly, but I’m so blind (really, I am legally blind)  that I have to have glasses when I’m not wearing my ‘tacts.  I’ll try to take a picture when I get them and post it this weekend.


I guess I need to go shopping, because I am getting all kinds of comments about how big my pants are.  As in “why do you keep pulling up your pants?  Do you need a belt or something?” As a matter of fact, I do.  Maybe I just need to go buy a new belt! =)


Still craving ice cream – what does that mean? 


If you haven’t fallen asleep yet, you must have consumed a lot of coffee before you started reading this because, wow, this qualifies for “Most Boring Post EVERRRR”.


Maybe something exciting! and cool! will happen to me on the way home so I’ll have something that’s post-worthy tomorrow! 


Later kids!!!

  1. Loved your post’s title. Cute!

    Bummer about the teeth. I have a small mouth & small teeth (v. short–like they are only half teeth in the back). Had trouble as a kid getting the retainer to fit properly. Bonus–I had NO wisdom teeth. They just weren’t there. Maybe your son will get lucky and be evolved like me and not have to have those cut out when he’s older.

    Hope you find a good car. We got a 2005 Saturn VUE in 2005 when GM was practically giving them away. It’s a great little SUV (oxymoron?). We paid less than $16,000 for it, brand new. Of course, it’s a stick shift which saved us $1700, and that helped.

    When you figure out how to get kids to sleep easier, let me know. I’m all paranoid now about reading to Sophie 20 minutes every night, b/c she’s 7 and still doesn’t read (she know how to sound out words, knows plenty of sight words, but isn’t reading yet). I *know* it’s normal (up to age 9 is a normal reading age, “they say”) and I *know* it’s not because I’m a bad parent, but I still feel bad that she’s not reading. Oh well, at least she’s not the only 1st grader who’s not reading War & Peace yet. Nothing like mommy guilt.

    Yes, please start watching Mad Men! It’s oh so yummy. I checked the AMC website and it looks like some cable providers have it On Demand so you can watch old episodes. Also on iTunes for $1.99 an episode. Season 1 also on DVD. Now, go watch! =)

  2. Ooh, can’t wait to see your new glasses. I wear glasses most of the time, contacts just for vanity.

    Haha on the belching info! When my nieces were younger, and we’d be having dinner and coke, I’d burp and say, ‘Ahhhh, more room!’ My sister would always say, ‘That’s disgusting.’ Then when Round Table Pizza came out with their advertising campaign saying ‘The right to burp if it’ll free up more room!,’ my sister said, ‘they ought to pay you royalties.’

    Thanks for introducing the subject. That’s something I never thought I’d share on the World Wide Internet Web.

  3. I hate the eye twitch – I usually chalk it up to lack of sleep. Hope the twitch goes away soon.

    Did you ever buy yourself some new clothes? I was off the internet in late June and early July, so I may have missed those posts. There is nothing greater than a pair of pants that once fit snug , and now are falling off.

    Sounds like you are off to a great start on the push ups and walking.

  4. ooooooooooh. Little known MizFit FACTOID: Im all about the funky glasses.
    Im elton jizzohn in that I have a drawer full (I know. my excuse? I dont wear make up or jewelry)
    cant wait to see yours!
