My Poor Tongue

Hmmm. I tried a new mouthwash. “Crest Pro-Health Night Mouthwash” to be exact. And now my taste buds are seriously jacked up. Jacked up, as in I can hardly taste anything! You know how your tongue feels after you take a bite of something or sip something too hot? That’s my ENTIRE tongue. I’m crossing my fingers that a little time will heal whatever the mouthwash did to my tongue. So far it’s been over 24 hours and no change. 😦

Yesterday (Monday) I got off work at 8am, came back at 4pm and am working a double until 8 am this morning.

I am tired. And want your sympathy. Thanks in advance.

Happy Mommies Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all the mommies out there!

I pretty much celebrated my day yesterday. We went out to Panera for lunch and then went to the mall where Andrew bought me some diamond earrings! They are really nice..and kinda big. 1/2 carat. I am truly spoiled 🙂

We also picked up a few summer outfits for Taylor. For 11 years old, she is growing so fast. She wears a women’s size 8 shoe! That is crazy to me. Anyway, she got some cute outfits, one with a pair of “skinny jeans” which I guess are all the rage now…they looked good on her. Oh! And she got her first eyebrow/upper lip wax! She took it pretty well, and they look a lot better. She definitely gets all her dark hair from Andrew. I’ve never had to wax my upper lip, and half the time you can barely see my eyebrows unless I fill them in. I told her I’d rather be her though, cause now that her eyebrows are done they have the perfect arch without any touch-up needed. Plus she has the longest eyelashes which most girls would kill for. My lashes are practically non-existent.

Anyway, enough girl talk.

It was a great day. We got home around 3pm and Andrew said we all went to work like we were having a G.I. Party, haha. Not really meaning too, but that’s how it turned out. He went out to mow the lawn, then I started dusting and vacuuming the house, and Taylor had her chores to do…even Audrey joined in and picked up her room. It was cool, and we were all done pretty quick, so that was nice.

I’m at work now – I don’t know why, but I signed up for this shift. I didn’t realize it was Mother’s Day when I put my name on it. Oh well. So the rest of my mothers day will probably be spent resting in bed. No complaints here! More than anything I am just hoping everyone shows up like they are supposed to in the morning so I don’t get stuck on a double shift….that would lead to some complaining!

I’m Yours

I think I forgot to mention that this was **video** week?  Cause’ it seems like it was, whether it was on purpose or not!  (not) Oh well. I guess it fits then that I’m ending the week in a video!  Yay! or Boooo!!!  Depending on your mood.  You pick.

Here’s Jason Maraz w/ I’m Yours –  it’s been around for a while but is just now getting some air play.  Total chill song, good for kicking back with a glass of wine..or beer…or soda…you pick.

Have a great weekend!

The Gratitude Campaign

How do you say thanks to a soldier?

That was the subject line to an email I received yesterday from a friend. I thought it might be a cute joke actually. As I clicked through the link provided and watched the video I found out it was most definitely not a joke, and it really hit home for me. With Andrew’s deployment looming in the near future and thinking of having to say good-bye to him for a year or more again…it makes me cry just thinking about it. (remember yesterday’s post though!) And even though when I think about it I’m busy feeling sorry for myself, I also think about how I am just one of many that will be horribly missing a husband, a lover, a father, a friend, a son, a brother…or a wife, mother, sister…etc….and of course that doesn’t really help improve my mood either.

This campaign is really cool though, because it can be awkward for soldiers when strangers profusely thank them, to most of them, they are just doing their job and they don’t really think any thanks is needed…Andrew included. But I say it never hurts to acknowledge the sacrifice, and even though he may play it off, I’m sure he appreciates it.

So if you want, check out the video, or go to the website and see and read about it there. 🙂

Violet Hill

I haven’t had the time or will to put much content in here this week. Sorry about that. Fucking hormones. Either I hate the world and everyone in it, am crying for absolutely no reason, or totally spacing out. You pick. So yeah, fuck hormones! Ok..that feels a little better.

Anyway. I just listened to Coldplay’s new release “Violet Hill” and loved it (meaning I played it 15+ times straight). I wasn’t so impressed with their last album, with the exception of a few tracks. Hopefully this album is a little better. If this first release is any indication, I see good things ahead! Take a whiff. Seriously some good poo…

**Sorry, had to take the video down – copy write thing**

Tomorrow? We should delve into the interpretation of this song! I have a few theories! Sound like fun?

Mario Kart

We bought Mario Kart for the Wii this weekend + an extra steering wheel….it was too much fun.  Even Audrey likes to play 🙂  That’s what I like so much about the Wii, it really can be fun for the whole family. (sorry if I sound like a commercial, it’s true!)

Not much else to say at the moment, so I’ll spare you!
