Don't let her do that. You probably won't even have delivered by then...you don't want her watching you like a watched pot.

Tell her to re-schedule for a few weeks later...AFTER the baby is born.

I use a dandelion fork to pop them right out. But I do that to eat them, not kill them. : )

Today's Google doodle thing is about my little town "Home of the Zipper". It's the inventor's birthday. I walk by his burial plot all the time. Super exciting, I know. : )
google.com click on the zipper

I told her I wanted to wait at least a couple of weeks on the phone and followed it up with an email to dad (she doesn't email) with a specific "Earliest" date. Thanks for the reinforcement though. I really have no idea what the "right" thing to do in this situation is, but I don't want to feel watched or like I need to entertain people during that time. (I'm due on the 6th and she took the 4th-10th off!! OY!)

Our yard is so tiny if I let dandelions stay we'll have no more grass. Calvin does enjoy sniffing them, getting them stuck to his nose then sneezing his head off, though.

The phone has been ringing all day. Everyone that had anything to say to me about anything, chose today to do it. The cat glued herself to me. Korbin if he's not trying to distract his brother from his homework then he's making really annoying repetitive noises. It's been nothing but grunting for the last 45 minutes straight. I tell him to stop, within seconds he starts up again. Thoughts of duct tape are entering my head. Astarte can't seem to get comfy for her afternoon nap so she's been scratching at her tiles for the last 20 minutes. They are mowing today. They've been mowing on and off since 11 this morning. This is the 3rd time in a week they've mowed my lawn. The neighbor I share a building with has been having work done on their apartment for the last 4 days,all day. If the handyman is not hamering, drilling or sawing something then he's slamming doors. I haven't had more than 20 seconds of silence at a time all day. The moment DH walks into this house, I'm barricading myself in my room with my ipod. If someone so much as makes a peep in my general direction I'm going to bite their heads off and burn their villages to the ground.

LOL. I hope Calvin wouldn't be upset about my laughing at the thought of this. My dogs are really dramatic sneezers: head WAY back and a loud ACHOO! - usually in multiples. I can just see it happening over a puffy dandelion.

I hope he won't be upset because I'm laughing right along with you. Poor guy, he's so short his snout always hits the ground when he sneezes, thankfully the grass is soft. Labeling him a dramatic sneezer is definitely the right term!

When your pets sneeze do they look shocked? Ed does. It's like he can't believe he was the one who made that noise.

divegirl the floors look awesome.

Group hug to all that do not feel good.

The eye medicine for Casey was $56. He needs to get a job or start doing chores.

Finally, for the first time since my Mom passed away I have no plans this weekend. Yay!!!

I have been having odd dreams about my mom. Not scary just bizarre.

Please don't leave. I'll miss you.

I love voting!

Except for when I get to that one section, which I'm never prepared for, with names I don't even recognize! Every time! No matter how much I research, I always seem to miss one block of candidates (this time, it was for the 14th Congressional District). Grrrr. I don't even think I'm allowed to vote in that district!

And I hate it how the machine yells at you, with loud beeping noises, when you submit the ballot without picking a name for each section.

ETA: Oh dear. Upon further research, it wasn't the 14th CD. It was electing a delegate for National Convention. Well, I still can't say I knew any of the names!

I was in this...well, behavioral rehabilitation place when I was a teenager (long story, I was not a bad child, I swears) and they would take our haircare items from us and only let us check them out daily for 30 minutes. One girl drank hair mousse to get a buzz. MOUSSE. Can you imagine how gross that must taste and how desperate you must be. I'm still trying to figure out how you drink something from an aerosol can.

Hand sanitizer. Really. SMDH

Mousse?!

The hand sanitizer thing really is ridiculous. I wonder if they'll start banning it in schools, at some point? Kind of like how they banned water bottles in schools...

Where I live, the sale of Listerine is controlled in some areas and must be kept behind store counters. Other ways some get "high": drinking Lysol, and sniffing glue.

One co-worker told us about the "choking game" that she found out about from her kids. Kids will choke one another until they almost pass out.

I'll stick to chocolate.
