Sneeze!!! I can't stop.


Wonder if Rou's killed anyone yet.


In other randomness... When I saw London Fog bags yesterday, I almost dropped. I had not thought about that brand since childhood. I used to have a dusty rose LF dress coat. Otherwise known as my church coat. I wasn't allowed to wear it to school. I was in love with it. That made me think of some other popular late 70's and 80's brands. I remember thinking I had to have a pair of designer jeans. I was around 4 or 5 years old, and well aware that a horse (Jordache), a swan (GV), a question mark (still Guess) on the back pockets or the possibility that Brooke Shields wore them cause nobody came between her and her Calvin's, made you the isht. My parents bought me a dark wash pair of cheap kids jeans that had some kind of crazy stichery all over the back pockets, and I was happy. I had "de-si-dner" jeans, and the pockets proved it. I had this crazy cognac faux fur hoodie that wore with them, along with little cognac clunky boots. My dad put all 3 in his cedar chest. Occasionally I come across them (in the midst of family military uniforms, boxes of old photos and letters to and from Vietnam) and laugh hysterically. The coat looks like its been chewed up and spit out 4 times. I loved it, though. Real fur coats, not so much. I would cry as I petted one.

I wish I felt comfortable getting the book of tin type post cards from Africa that my Grandfather bought in WWII out of the cedar chest but I am afraid they would quickly fall apart. They have been wrapped up and cared for rather well. Absolutely beautiful photos. He kept some items from Germany as well (which he said parts looked like home). The Big Red 1. F**ked up for life.

Okay, so my BFF is going out of town on a big family trip and getting everything together to go is a real pia, given that she has many pets for which she has to arrange care. She also learned that there's to be a bridal shower for one of her nieces during the trip, and it proved to be the straw that broke the camels back.

Her reaction: "And now, I'm supposed to bring a gift, too? No! Eff her! I've had No warning. And her parents are rich! I can't handle this! It's just too g-damned much at once!"

It was so..........unfestive that I laughed quite hard. I like a bit of meltdown when it comes to constant family obligations.

You've got to accentuate the negative, eliminate the positive...

Hmmmm.... That's clearly not right.

I would love to go back to sleep, but I can not. Cleaning is done and it's time to shower and head to my moms. No matter how unappealing cooking a large dinner again is.

My... Niece in law (whatever) has already screwed up. She never puts her son down. The only time someone is not holding him is when he is in his car seat, and she sits in the back beside him. This is her second child so one would think that she would have relaxed a little. First time moms are always more jittery. Usually by the 3rd people will let them juggle flaming sticks.

He was out like a lights and I tried to put him on the guest bed. I had set up some pillows so he wouldn't roll anywhere, but no go. My SIL had to hold him while everyone else ate. If you lay him down, he wakes up screaming because he is not being held. Not good.

I've discovered that family gatherings are nicer when I add alcohol.

i barely had a chance to visit with my Nana and i haven't seen her for 18 months. and, lets face it, she'll be 94 next month - how many more times do i get to spend time with her?

i gulped down so much booze, i was sure i would be massively hung over the next day, but i think it was all cancelled out by adrenaline, anger and sheer exhaustion.



i am soooooooo glad to be home again!

^ I am sorry, Rou. I wish you would have been able to spend more time with your Nana.

My grandmother (my mom's, mom) got that way. She had 5 daughters and at first she would sit back and smile as everyone did all the work. It was time for her to kick back. She had spent most of her life working farms, raising 8 kids, and then dealing with 32 grandkids. BUT THEN... the smile got a little evil. It was unsettling, to say the least. My dad and I would bring it up and my mom would get defensive. After that everything you did was completely wrong. That was before her dementia really kicked in. Then it was all wrong and you were robbing her blind. It could be highly frustrating at times. I was accused of messing up closets and stealing toilet paper more times than I could count.

Does your mom possibly have anything else going on, health wise?

******************

My mom got a copy of my cousins DNA results. We have the Scottish Cluster/Pict marker. I was curious about that. It makes sense. No one really knew what happened to the ancient tattooed/painted tribal people of pre Scotland/Highlands. There was documentation of them hanging out with the Celts, when battling Romans. I kind of figured they assimilated at some point, were ran from the Highlands to the Lowlands like many, and then possibly to Ulster though the marker is only found in 2% of Northern Irish... and then some to America.

I was reading up on them one day when I came across an article about Braveheart, the movie. The person who wrote it was clueless. Of course the blue paint would not have been prevalent during that point in history (just cool) but the girl thought they used blue paint to not offend Native cultures in the States. :-/ Well, you see, Picts and Celts were tribal cultures. Mohawks (not related to the US tribe or traditional patch of hair. More like punk. some celts even had liberty spikes. love it. but can you imagine doing your hair with pine sap?) braids, tattoos, paint, beads in their hair, carvings in stones, bows/arrows/spears, (pardon, that should be) Polytheistic, Pagans, etc.

^ Hahaha. I wish they knew a little more about them. Movie/art depictions just kind of go and elaborate off of old written descriptions and archeological findings. They have found out quite a bit from those, but there are still many unknowns.

rou - I think a nice long soak in the bath and a glass of something bubbly would help!

My SIL is actually his grandmother. It's her DIL, the mom, that holds him continuously. She did the same with her first child, as well as never telling her no. She is the little girl that I sometimes call satan (nothing to do with holding her, just complete lack of discipline). The first time we met her she jumped on my nephews back and literally started trying to rip his hair out. She was 3, almost 4. Her mom just stood there laughing. She has calmed down a lot in the past year, thankfully. *She's 11 or 12 now.

ETA: ^ I have to take that back. Apparently she is just not as open with her aggressive behavior now. My nephew just informed me that she kicks her older half brother in the knees to make him fall, tries to kick his face, throws large rocks at his head and then tells her mom that he did all of those things to her. Her mom is also afraid to leave her alone with the new baby because she keeps saying she hates him and wishes he wasn't born. No one pays 24-7 attention to her now. She remains Satan.

My SIL is not very happy that her DIL will not allow him to self soothe. She tried talking to her about how it is not good for baby, or mom. You need to get some stuff done here and there or take a moment... but she got mad.

I find it kind of odd how many people misunderstand self soothing now and read neglect. Not a parent, never been a parent, but I am 99% sure I could not let my hypothetical baby cry for hours on end. My brother and his first wife lived with us when my oldest nephew was a newborn. I was 12 at that time. He had colic. I was always checking on him, going to get him and trying to comfort him, or I would drag the vacuum cleaner into my bedroom and turn it on. The noise made him go to sleep. It pissed my brother and ex SIL off. Somehow they could sleep through the screaming baby (they were both very young) but not the vac. The baby was much louder.

Anywho, there is a difference if your child can not go to sleep or stay asleep without you. The situation with the baby I am talking about isn't a great one. If they are out like a light in your arms, and scream like a banshee the moment you lay them down... red flag. Need to slowly work on the babies ability to calm his or her self. It's an important one.

Even though it is not on tv anymore, I can not believe it has been 30 years since Reading Rainbow started. I was 8. I remember the first few years it was on rather well. They had the Reading Rainbow van, and travelled around to elementary schools to promote reading, and the show. LeVar Burton came to my school. We sang the theme song, he showed us a video, read to us and talked to us for quite some time... Incredibly nice man. We were in awe of him. I don't know how we scored so many cool guests in our craptastic little school. It was very old, and falling apart, but the library was nice. Maybe it was because of the former high illiteracy numbers in my area. There seemed to be a literacy campaign and a half going on, at all times.

That was before being in awe of him in this...

Anyone a *****y work out buddy? I need to start running again, but I need someone to hold me accountable.

I need someone to tell me to suck it up after a long day and just do it. No one in real life will push me enough lol
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I just finished my bottle of amlactin. Want to thank whoever it was who recommended it back in the spring/summer. I think maybe it was jeepy or CP or ninja. But it might have been someone else. I love that stuff.
