To Vaccinate Or Not To Vaccinate?





Yesterday I came across a mother on twitter who said she was not going to follow her pediatricians advice. Hearing her short tweet I couldn't help but to wonder what advice her pediatrician had given her that she deemed unfit to follow. Unable to contain my curiosity I asked her and her response was:



"We don't vaccinate--which is… Continue

Fun Fact Friday - Giving Blood Turned Me Into A Cheap Date!

Today's fun fact is that I gave blood for the first time ever yesterday. My coworker, and friend, Amy came to my office, grabbed my hand and said "Come on, you're going with me and giving blood!"



Me: Um I am? Wait, I uh *tries to think of an excuse*, uuuh, I don't really like needles you know.

Amy: *eye roll*. Come ON! Your covered in tattoos and you are going to tell me you don't like needles???

Me: Well I mean needles IN my veins. That's different.

Amy: Whatever. If… Continue

Fun Fact Friday - The 13th

Iiiiiiiit's FRIDAY!!!







TGI-mother f'in-F!! I have been EXHAUSTED all week long and I'm SO ready for the weekend. This is the first time daylight savings has totally kicked my butt. I haven't worked out once all week! I just can't seem to drag my butt out of bed at 4:00 am what still feels like 4:00 am but is really 5:00 am. My treadmill and I are no longer on speaking terms so I'm thinking I might have to do a little kissing and making up with it… Continue

Pretty Much The Best Photos Ever

This is my husband Rudy, around age 12:





{click to enlarge}




Does anyone else feel like his hat should say "vote for Pedro"? Or that maybe he was bred for his skills and magic?



This picture is so funny that it cracks me up EVERY single time I see it. Bonus? It's actually a pin and I could pin this to my jacket if I wanted to.



Trust me, I'm… Continue

Cuz I Have The Attention Span Of A Goldfish

It took 1 month, 2 weeks, and 3 days, but the honeymoon is over. The novelty of facebook has finally worn off for me. I've told you a million times I'm easily distracted by shiny objects so trust me lasting over month is pretty impressive for me.

I joined up January 15th and I spent the next month an a half saying things like:

OMG! She's on here?! Oh I haven't seen her in, gosh, almost *counts…

DOW Plunges, Jen... Cheers?

Call me crazy but I think it's exciting when the DOW drops really low. It's similar to the feeling of an impending storm. There is electricity in the air. People start to wonder. How bad will it be? What's going to happen? Will it change life as I know it?

I find all these questions to be exhilarating, even if the answers might be negative.

Some of it also has to do with my love of breaking records. For example, I despise winter, but if we have a super cold day that breaks the…

Old Turtle And The Broken Truth

My oldest daughter, Yuna, brought a book home from her school library the other day. It was called:

Old Turtle And The Broken Truth



I read it to her before bedtime and it turned out to be one of the most touching and beautiful children stories I have ever read. The pictures were breath taking and the story itself had me choked up while reading it. It was that good.

I'm going to share…

Let's Go Tubing!

This week, on Thursday to be exact, Kayla will be getting tubes in her ears. During our appointment with the ENT specialist last week they hooked her ears up to a machine that tests pressure and fluid levels.



She failed miserably.



Both ears are still filled with fluid, her left ear being the worse than the right. I feel so AWFUL for her. Her poor little ears have not been fluid free since OCTOBER! That's 5 solid months of fluid and on and off again infections. I can't even… Continue

The Upside of The Downside

Every time I turn on the TV there is news of another awful incident plaguing our community. Instead of getting depressed I think it's time we started looking for the silver lining.

Massive Layoffs:

Better parking spots for those of us still working

Peanut Butter Salmonella Scare:

All the vomiting and diarrhea really helped people keep their weight loss resolutions.

Global Warming:

No need to shell out big bucks for a tropical…

Everyone-isms - Part 2

A continuation of last month's everyone-isms



After another frustrating attempt at teaching Yuna how to tie her shoes:

Yuna: *SIGH* Maybe we should just staple them.



After telling a joke:

Yuna: I'm a goose ball aren't I?



After picking up Kayla from daycare:

Me: How was your day? What did you do?

Kayla: I had lots of… Continue

The Mother Of The Octuplets Speaks



And to think, she doesn't even have an Apu with a milk bag!! This woman is SCREWED! (although... not literally)



Please tell me you caught the show on NBC last night where Ann Curry interviewed the mother of the newly born Octuplets. Side note, I'm still having issues with seeing the headlines. Every time I see the word "Octuplets" my brain reads it as "Octopus" first. It's hilariously confusing…

Reason # 34253 Why I Love The Internet

The internet is one of the only places in the world where you can get paid for taking a picture of your lunch. Remember this photo that I took of a YUMMY fluffernutter sandwich I made for my girls?

Well I had a copy of the photo saved on my flickr page and it was spotted by Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture magazine. They are…

My Puke-A-Sourous Infected Me!!

She was cute, innocent, and helpless. She looked at me with her big brown eyes, pleading at me with her pouty lips; "Mommy, I want my Mommy!!" Unable to resist her siren song I was drawn to her regardless of the vomit, snot, poop, and general grossness that was oozing forth from her every pore.



As a Mom I look past all that junk. It's part of the job description.



I cleaned and wiped and disinfected. I purelled and moped and cleaned some more. I washed my hands so many… Continue

Fun Fact Friday - Basements

Did you know that most homes in Texas do NOT have basements? This fact is also true in many other parts of the country!



Color me ignorant but I didn't know this until yesterday. I happened to be talking to one of my blogging buddies yesterday, Jeannie - from Musing From Left Field (aka the exclamation point queen), about her new treadmill purchase. I told her how we keep our treadmill in the basement in front of… Continue

We Watched...

(That's Yuna with her buddy Jayce)

What did you think?! The ending was wild wasn't it? One minute I thought the Steelers were going to win, the next the Cardinals, then the Steelers again... WOW!

I don't watch much football but even I know that was a great game.

How about ..…

Fun Fact Friday - Super Bowl Facts

  • According to Las Vegas, the Super Bowl spread is currently at 7 points for the Steelers over Cardinals.
  • The team I think will win is the one that shows up with the prettiest outfits. I've been known to have better odds than Vegas.
  • In 1944 due to World War II, the Cardinals (then based in Chicago) combined with the Pittsburgh Steelers to play as ONE TEAM. That team was called Card-Pitt.
  • The 2008 Super Bowl between the New York Giants and New England Patriots…

My First Kiss

Do you remember your first kiss? Well I do and let me tell ya, it was a disaster. I can't remember exactly how old I was, but I was old enough to be curious about kissing, yet young enough to be afraid of doing it wrong. I was around 13 years old and the boy's name was Tim. He was this kid with glasses and braces, and he was a really nice guy. He didn't deserve what happened to him that faithful day.



We took a quiet walk together and when the moment was just right, we leaned forward… Continue
