It is totally uncool that "they" don't make the following items anymore:

1. Jello Pudding Pops
2. Almay Gel Mascara
3. Carnation Breakfast Bars
4. Lip Lickers (in the tin)
5. Clorox Fresh Fabric Spray
6. Lenito's Rolled Tacos
7. Vegas Chips
8. New Arrested Development Episodes

....hmm...what else have I missed??

No News

All the Neon Trees news info I posted was wrong. That's lame. Sorry, Internet. And thanks for the inaccurate info, TYLER!

Oh Internet, what is your problem? Every time I sit down to get online, I have to unplug and replug the modem multiple times until I get all the right flashing green lights. Get a life, Internet!

When will it end?

Here are a few highlights from the last 24 hrs:

-Changing the sheets twice because of projectile vomit.
-Returning home to find a completely destroyed, moldy dresser as a result of a leaky humidifier.
-Killing a 2 inch brown spider on my bedroom ceiling.
-Baby boy sleeping, at max, 1.5 hrs. at a time.
-Finding a flood underneath the bathroom sink...yet another leak.
-Contracting said baby boy's diarrhea.

Too much fun for one mom.

Heading Out

Now I'm going to drive 6 hours alone with my kids. And baby has a stomach virus with major vomiting and diarrhea. So much fun.

Jiffy Goob

I just went to get an oil change in my car so I could make the trek to CA to see Bdog today. The boy at the Jiffy Lube in Highland was super lame. He literally tried to talk me out of dropping my car off 'cause there was a 30 min. wait. I assured him it was fine because I had some errands to run across the street and had the time. So, he further tried to discourage me by saying I'd probably be back before they even got to my car (there was only one car ahead of me b.t.w.). I couldn't understand why he totally wanted me to leave. It was rude and frustrating since I had to have it done TODAY. So I left it there, and it was ready when I got back. Do they not want customers so they can hang out and play video games or something? So uncool.

Sad & Lonely

Here are the mates to all the earrings I've lost in just the last few months. I don't know why I have such bad earring Karma. It's very depressing. I love and miss them dearly.

The Red Pony

I picked this book up last month while I was shopping for used fabric at D.I. It was only $0.25. I'm not sure why I felt like reading it, just thought I'd further explore fiction after my Twilight stint. I know John Steinbeck is like, one of America's great authors, but this book just sucked donkeys. I guess I can say it was well written, but the plot just made me wish I had spent those two hours watching American Idol...something I've NEVER watched in my life.

Not only was I waiting the whole time for some poignant, climactic moment, but I didn't even realize when the book had ENDED!! The story moved on to the dead horse and some lemonade, which I was SURE could not have been the ending. So, I kept reading. Right into Junius Maltby which was included after The Red Pony. I didn't even realize it was an entirely new story. Which by the way, was equally dismal and infuriating. OMG! Has anyone read Junius Maltby??? Perhaps it was because I had just recently re-read Siddhartha and Into the Wild for the umpteenth time, but I really needed a happy ending. Though after Junius, I felt so pleased that my husband is pursuing his career in music. Despite the sacrifice.

More poop complaints...

On Tuesday night, our family visited two very holy places....Temple Square and Bombay House. While at Bombay, I had to use the changing table in the ladies room to change baby Connor's diaper. For some reason, the changing table was installed DIRECTLY above the big toilet in the large stall. This meant I had to completely straddle the toilet to reach my baby and change him. Oddly, the big tile wall on the north side of this stall is totally bare. Nothing on it, and nothing in front of it. A perfect place for a changing station. My pant legs were touching the yukky part of the loo all the while. I'm still so baffled and so grossed out.
