Fuck You Universe

So, yeah, it's been a while.  I am still knocking on death's door with some ungodly sickness and now my hot water heater has decided to take a crap.  We're not even gonna mention a few other situations I've gotten myself into, so I have to say this......Seriously?  What is the deal universe?  Am I that awful of a person that you decided to bitch slap me several times in the short span of two weeks? 

I hate to be a glass is half empty complainer (cause mainly I hate those types), but I am about to start taking some of this shit personally.  I just want to stand on my roof top and scream at the top of my lungs.  Well, maybe not the roof top because I'm scared of heights.  Maybe the top of my car.  Hell, maybe I'll just get under my car and let it run over me a few times.  That ought to cure things. 

Someone please rescue me!  Send a paddywagon to the Bible Belt and look for the stark ravin' MAD housewife under a car.  That will be me.

Why You Should Do Things Yourself

Hello blogland.  I am still sick and grumpy and generally not a lot of fun.  I figure if I had blogged every day this week I would have a new bitch every day.  Well, today I got one and I'm not going to let it go.

My husband lives in his own world.  He asks questions and tries to engage, but it does not get absorbed.  We have both been sick and he stayed home from work today.  This evening I ask him to go to Walgreen's to pick up some medicine and a special kind of shampoo I use.  I told him no less then three times what kind of medicine I had had and to get something similar there.  Once at Walgreen's my phone proceeds to be blown up with calls and texts about all the different kinds of meds.  Um, hello, did I NOT tell you exactly what I was looking for?!  Really dude.  It's not like I am asking for something you are going to have to import from another country. 

So, what will I get when he gets home?  Probably something for PMS.  *bangs head*

Snow. Fabulous.

Really, I am in such a shitty mood.  I had a GREAT weekend, besides the millions of meltdowns the Drama Queen decided was necessary, but then Monday had to come.  And with it comes snow and sickness.  Even for someone who is a "stay at home mom" Monday's still suck.  I want a re-do and a damn day off! 

I am going to guess, since this is the south and all, we won't have school tomorrow with this snow.  My daughter has been off from school since last Wednesday with her teeth pulling incident.  They are predicting more snow this week.  What did I do to deserve such bad ass karma?  Seriously.

Sorry this is a short and pissy post, but I'm short and pissy myself.

Just a Really Quick Check-In

Hey everybody!  Just wanted to pop in and let you know I've not abandoned ship.  We've just had a busy few days with kiddo and her lip.  It is doing so much better today.  Also, I've got a crazy busy weekend so it may be Monday before I can update and comment on blogs!

Much love!

She Bit Her Lip? Really Now?

So yesterday I had to take my sweet little daughter to the dentist.  I knew more then likely they were going to have to pull her bottom teeth because one of the adult teeth was already through the skin behind her baby teeth and another one is almost through.  Kiddo was so nervous, but I tried to assure her it would be fine and they would make sure she did not hurt.  When we arrive at the dentist they give us our consultation and sure enough, they need to pull four so there is plenty of room for the adult teeth to finish coming in and move forward.  Her baby teeth never got loose, and it didn't look like they would, so this was the route we needed to go.  She does beautifully getting her teeth pulled.  No crying or anything.  They have her the "happy gas" and numbed her gums with a shot.

Okay, let's fast forward an hour or so.  Kiddos lip is HUGE.  At least five times the size it's supposed to be.  I'm not really concerned yet, but I call the dentist office and ask them about it and they tell me it's probably because while her lip was numb she was chewing on it.  Okay, I can buy that.  Sounds logical.  As the day wears on her lip begins to look worse and worse.  I get concerned that maybe she is having an allergic reaction to the drug or something.  When husband gets home we discuss it and decide that since she is acting fine, no fever, or anything out of the ordinary we will give her ibuprofen for the night and call the dentist back in the morning.

This morning kiddo wakes up and her lip looks awful.  Like it's infected or something.  I am about to freak out and husband calls the dentist office again.  Once again we hear, "Oh she must have bit her lip while it was numb."  Good thing husband was on the phone with them and not me.  I would have went off.  I get her an appointment with the pediatrician this afternoon.  He takes a look at it and assures me she did not have an allergic reaction or anything, but that she has suffered lip trauma.  WHAT THE FUCK?!  Lip trauma?!  He can see me starting to get upset and tries to calm me down and explains that probably either the dental dam or the assistant pulled on her lip too much and since she couldn't feel it, she didn't know to ask them to stop. 

Now, I have had no problems in the past with kiddos dentist office.  I like going there because it is a pediatric dentist and she has been going since she was three.  However, after this little incident I am a little displeased.  Luckily it hasn't scared her away from the dentist or anything, since she couldn't feel anything, but still.  Lip trauma on a six year old just for pulling teeth?!  I'd kinda like to go and give them all lip trauma right now.

Thank god I'm going out with a friend tonight for karoke and beer.  I need it!

On No! The Monster is Coming Over!

So, Amber from one me, two monsters is apparently drunk posting and decides to tag me in a quiz.  Thanks Amber!  No, really.  Thanks.  She was also kind enough to give me the title of my post.  I love this.  No hassle blogging.  If this happens too much I could get spoiled.  Also, if you don't follow her, you should.  She's hilarious and lives in that barren land full of snow called Alaska.  Could you do me a favor Amber and bury Sarah Palin in a large snow drift?  Thanks.

Well, without further ado, let's get on with the questions.

1. If you have pets, do you see them merely as animals, or are they members of your family?
  As if this question really has to be asked.  My pets are just like my children.  I have three pups (one who is 12, one that will be 6 in March, and one that just turned 2).  When I was pregnant with my daughter people kept telling me that my oldest pup would take a backseat once she arrived.  I was absolutely adamant that that would not happen, and it didn't.  You don't just forget your oldest child when you have a new one.  You accommodate.  So, as you can see, they are members of my family.

2. If you can have a dream come true, what would it be?
  That is a hard one.  I dream a lot.  That's right folks, I'm admitting it now, I'm not exactly living a dream so I keep my head in the clouds.  Don't blame me, I'm a Pisces.  At the moment my dream would probably be to run away with Rob Pattinson and have his babies.  Yes, I will turn 32 this month and I dream of a guy younger then my brother.  Go me.

3. What is one thing most hated by you?
  ONE thing?  What kinda jacked up quiz is this?  Okay, okay, I would probably say bad table manners.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
  Buy Rob Pattinson, Johnny Depp, and a private island tricked out with all the amenities.  Oh, this is a serious question?  Silly me.  I would pay off our debt, build a nice house, get a new car, make sure my daughters college and future is set, and invest the rest.

5. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?
  Listening to "Love Train" by The O'Jays.  Also, just being left alone to read.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
  Well, now that is a hard decision.  The only person I can honestly answer this about is my daughter and I just cannot pick between the two.

7. What is your bedtime routine?
  You are talking to an insomniac here.  I have no routine for myself.  My daughters routine is reading while eating a small snack and having a drink, brushing her teeth, laying down while I sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "Mr. Sandman" (we cannot sub other songs, this is her routine), then tucking her in and turning out the light.  After that I usually remove my contacts and watch TV and/or surf the net while attempting to get sleepy.

8. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?
  We meet online almost 12 years ago.  So romantic.

9. If you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?
  I am honestly not sure.  If I can go for dead people I would say Elvis or John Lennon.  Especially John Lennon while he was writing his songs and creating the music.  Alive, I have no idea.  Rob Pattinson?  (See a trend here folks?)

10. What kind of books do you read?
  Reading is an escape for me.  Since I've been out of school I do not read anything "heavy" and I loathe the classics.  Plain English please people!  So, as I have admitted in another post, I have an obsession with young adult paranormal romance.  I also enjoy adult paranormal romance and chick-lit.  Currently I am reading "Winter Garden" by Kristin Hanna.

11. What's your fear?
  Something happening to my daughter is my biggest fear.  My second is something happening to me prematurely so I do not get to see her grow up and who she becomes.

12. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to visit outer space?
  Is this a trick question?  HELL.NO.  I hate to fly in an airplane in our own atmosphere.  I sure as hell don't want to leave it and go floating out into the big black void.

13. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
  I have to plead the fifth on this one. 

14. What's the first thing you do when you wake up?
  Usually shout, "WHHHYYYYYY????!!!"  Then I get out of bed and hit the shower.

15. If you could change one thing about your spouse/partner what would it be?
  He is far too serious.  I would change his outlook to be more positive and fun.

16. If you could pick a new name for yourself what would it be?

17. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
   That is a whole 'nother blog post in itself people.

18. If you could only eat one thing for the next six months, what would it be?
  Chinese food!  I would be even fatter and chock full of MSG, but damn would I be in heaven!

So there ya have it folks.  Ain't I just a gem?!  Apparently I am supposed to tag people now, so here we go....

Blah, It's Monday......

So, yeah it's Monday and I generally hate them.  Nothing really good ever happens on a Monday.  At least, not in my world.  So, I don't have anything to really blog about today.  I will, however, play by the rules of my fabulous award that was lovingly bestowed upon me by Torystellar.

I am supposed to list seven things about me.  I am not all that exciting, but here goes.....

1. I am deathly afraid of heights, roller coasters, and flying.
2. I have an unhealthy addiction to young adult paranormal romance novels.
3. The only drug I have ever done is marijuana and I don't get what all the hype about it is.
4. I love Chinese food and would eat it every day if possible.
5. I have no tolerance for bad table manners.
6. I often wish I had made better choices when I was younger to see how my life would have turned out.
7. I hold grudges for a very, very long time and realize that is not a healthy thing to do.

So there you have it folks!  Ain't I a winner?!

(Yes, I know I'm supposed to pass this along, but I'm lazy tonight.  Rain check?)
