A list of truly random shit a-happenin' in these neck of the woods for your reading pleasure:
a) My car broke down in 106 degree weather with both kids in attendance on Wednesday. As you can only imagine, I danced a super kick-ass jig and thought only happy thoughts. A big shout out to Susan who didn't kick us out of the Pharmacy with my kids spilling cokes on their carpeted floor, marking things, furniture and meds with Sharpie markers and running into expensive equipment with their heads. Hopefully, the coke machine still works after our adventurous stay.
b) I went to my "scheduled" OB/GYN appointment today to only be told, the lovely and adept receptionist from six weeks ago? Scheduled my "psych med" consult for 2010 instead of today. Luckily, when I broke down in tears in front of 30 pregnant women and a very stunned staff during my truly embarrassing demise, the new receptionist somehow found an appointment for me tomorrow to go all crazy again for the masses.I guess they didn't think I could wait a few weeks, let alone another year for such a meeting.
c) Today, I totally realized, Celia can sing "Eye of the Tiger" and Moira can sing "Creep" by Radiohead better than I could ever being to try. Drunk or sober. Have I mentioned they can't read? I'm not sure if I should be either proud or mortified by these results.
d) Celia has become quite depressed to find out that Jon of "Jon and Kate plus 8" is dating another woman or should I say "Girl?" Horrified to be exact. She found out the dirty diddy from my new US magazine in today's mail. Didn't I just state, she can't read? I think she's totally withholding information from me with regards to her reading skills.
e) A June bug flew into my ear this evening to only fly out and get trapped in my hair. I think I need therapy over this event. And you ask why NOW I'm considering therapy after all I've been through? BECAUSE A JUNE BUG ALMOST DEAFENED ME AND I DON'T THINK MY HAIR WILL EVER BE THE SAME AGAIN! That is why.
f) I needed to eat a snack (okay, I WANTED a snack) after eating a 4 piece Ravioli meal from Lean Cuisine this evening. Sadly, the snack was half a bag of Lay's "Classic" potato chips and well, my lips will never be the same as they have swollen to triple the amount prescribed by Botox standards from the massive amounts of salt encrusted on them there chips. Let's just say, the look isn't cute on me.
g) Today is my Father's birthday and I failed to do one damn thing about it. Didn't send a card or call. I most definitely didn't send the package of pictures some kind soul sent to me from Mesquite, Texas which were found by a dumpster back in June. Pictures of my wedding , half-sister's youth and my step-mother's childhood. Part of me wants to believe he didn't pay for his storage unit and the staff threw them away as useless shit instead of believing my father decided my sister and I are really not worth holding onto. (Don't even begin to suggest I need to go to counseling on this subject. Why the hell do you think I spent all my many years in Psychology due to this subject?)
h) Finally, since I'm not good with lists and I don't have it in me to try to list more items through Z, I've decided, I think I'm going slightly insane. Why now do you think I've finally tipped over the proverbial edge? Mainly because, I want another child. Specifically, I want Thalon back but since I know this isn't humanly possible and well, as luck would have it, we would probably have another girl (not that girls aren't great and all....) - I want another child. And YES! I don't particularly like baby babies - I have to admit, I sure liked having little Man around. It seems, I feel cheated and truly enjoyed babydom for once. Maybe even appreciated him since he was going to be our last spawn. or maybe, I'm totally romanticizing the whole event since his life abruptly ended. Who knows. Who really knows?
So, how's that for ending a half-assed list of nothingdom? Man, I thought I was doing pretty good here until I got to the letter I. Maybe, I should have ended with G, instead.
