Poor hubby. They've had so many people come in today trying to get free repairs right now that they can't get anything done.

I am not always the biggest fan of sites like this. It all depends on who is providing the photo's, but some of these are grand. Recreating the Awkwardness is the best thing ever.

My friend was just complaining as well. I've been making a halfhearted effort to follow Australian politics for her. He's the one with the big ears and the big ego, right?

I hate the DMV. Not only for making me wait an hour even with an appointment and for not having central air on a day that's 100*, but for then delivering me a new license in which I, once again, look like some homicidal maniac.

I am not leaving my house for the rest of the day. My town is only about a 1/2 a square mile, we've had 4 car accidents in the last few days. 3 today, 2 of them at the same damn 4-way with a cop right there.

One was a guy just outside town trying to pass on a blind curve, another just outside of town on the other side a guy trying to get top speed on a curvy road, nearly plowed into someone's house. Those both resulted in fatalities.

then at the 4-way there were 2 people who turned into each other right in front of a speed trap. Then there were some people who rear-ended each other because they distracted by a biker chick making a huge scene because according to her it's extremely Mayberryish to require people to wear clothes . . . .

smh

dusalocks, I usually look like an escapee from a mental home in my pics. Once they took the photo right as I sneezed.

How I have never seen or heard of a baby window cage before now?

Say It.  I Dare You.-imageuploadedbycurltalk1378585490.372923.jpg

But I do live in the woods. I was just enjoying reading all the shock and awe comments about the 2nd shot. "It had to hurt the baby's butt!" It looks like there is a rather thick blanket under there to me. "Oh my good why don't you throw your child to it's death!" I wish the supports were a little thicker, and I'm not saying I'd be all that comfortable with it, but have you ever been on a balcony? "It looks like the cage would squish his tiny hands". No, it really doesn't. Not saying it's the most fantastic thing in the world but the commentary was pretty funny. Some were even bring up the pre historic bad parenting practices like leaving your child in a playpen on the porch or in a stroller outside of a restaurant. Yes, people did that, safely, before the world went crazy and people started stealing babies. It wasn't like today. Times were different. It's not like they stuck a knife in their hand and walked away. This seemed like a solution for fresh air, sunshine, and the ever important vitamin D when living in cramped, city, environments in the 20's and 30's. One commenter brought up TB as well, which was an excellent point. Fresh air was beyond important and kids didn't have vit D deficiencies (or a need to have it added to foods) at the rate they do now either. It's never perfect, but that is a pretty neat old photo.

* My little 2nd cousins next door have a rockin' tree house. They are not infants, but they are in 1st and 3rd grade, and in it all the time. No fear of heights there.

That's a bad day. There are many days like that when I pause before leaving work and wish myself good luck going home.

It's been another good day. A child getting into a nest and being stung several times was the worst part, and the kid was fine (the adults, not so much), so again... It's been a good day. I know the little one will have a rough night. I remember putting a paste of buttermilk and baking soda on 76 stings, and holding ice bags on my brother, when we were kids in hopes that the swelling would go down. He was uncomfortable, to say the least.

I don't know what other people are doing this weekend. Maybe they are taking trips, camping, enjoying the beautiful weather... Peacefully. Whatever it is, they can keep it up for one more day. I've had fun amusing myself with useless information in between slight mishaps.

I found a working Babyliss 2000bl blowdryer for $6 today (good for diffusing).

Yay!

I've never heard of that brand. I'm assuming it's a good one, pro maybe.

My stylist said her personal hair dryer of 15+ years just bit the bullet and I was floored. She bought in cosmetology school. I'm amazed if one lasts a year. I always buy some crazy defective one.

One more and I'm done for the night. I've got isht to do.

Public Service Announcement If any of you are allergic to bee's or other stinging creatures, or going on a hike, please keep an EpiPen on you at all times. Of course this works on a state by state basis, but a few years ago the state stopped providing Epi's to our first responders. Luckily they went out and started buying their own, out of pocket. We have a large number or stings and swarming stings here in the summer and I have had several people drop from anaphylactic shock on the phone with me in under 2 min, and from only one sting. Sadly 80% of the ones who get swarmed happen to be in some of the most remote areas of my county. It's going to take 10 minutes with them going warp speed and... That makes you hold your breath. You can't always count on someone else having them now, which is pathetic.

I was so glad when the child had no breathing problems today. That many stings, you're going to swell, but the little one calmed down and was eventually yelling at the adults to stop crying Very good sign.

PS- I did mean to ask out of curiosity... Anyone with an Rx or certified to give injections used the Auvi-Q? I heard that one talks! That is so neat and would be incredibly helpful for anyone who would have to administer the injection for another. It at least saves the time of reading instructions when you are in a panic. And PSS- thankfully all is back to normal with our responders supply. That was a scary thought at the beginning of summer though. Something one does not want to be without.

You don't need a prescription for an epi pen?

Oh, no... You have to have an Rx for Epi's, adult or ped, and if prescribed, need to have it at all times.

Each state has different med control rules when it comes to emergency responders. Our responders have a truck that contains a provided kit for those with certifications to use it. Those trucks are licensed. EMS has one on board as well. Some states only doctors or RN's can give them, which I think is a little silly because a 5 year olds can literally do it themselves. The majority of our responders can only assist someone with their Rx, if need be, but you have ones who can get in the rescue vehicle and go. All on EMS (all levels of paramedics) can administer or assist. In some states only the highest levels can. It's weird... (I don't administer, don't have one, am not certified, don't do it, but like anyone else could help someone with theirs if I had to but don't get all the in's and out's) I think it differs in schools within states too. I remember reading about one school nurse who used another's epi on a kid in AS. They were considering charging her but she saved a life and was commended. I think some schools can have a dual pack in a kit. I wish they would do something standard. Especially with increase in allergies.

The whole thing is confusing. I've seen people in the medical profession confused about it. I did some reading on forums one time and was like... What?!?! Thank god I just have to say, "If you have medicine prescribed by your doctor, use it now". :-/

To me, if it needs to be used and can save a life, the option should be there. People can develop an allergy at any time, and would not have one. I take it they are extremely expensive though, and have an exp. date of one year. Many are tossed. I know it is something paramedics have had to use here on many occasions. I believe they also have some other options on board. It's a scary thing. We had 3 die in one week of A.S. from stings. (which reminds me, I think there are different regulations with insect bites/stings vs food allergy in some states). All hikers deep in the woods... with no pen.

I'm in a horrible place right now. I hope you are doing better than me. I miss you and I'm afraid that's it for us. I'm so lost.
