amazon.com be damned.

today i ordered a ceiling fan , a downrod extention for said ceiling fan, a remote to control afore mentioned ceiling fan, a butter dish, diapers, and a gardening book.

i also needed some dish soap and bubble bath, but amazon was out. i'm thinking of adding some noodle bowls to my order before its too late!!!


my child has gone evil on my ass.

not literally, but he's definately having a mini-identity crisis. he's gone from a pretty easy going kid to a bossy, very opinionated, cranky, poop monster. its almost getting to the point i want to call the pediatrician and tell him that the boogerbear is broken and ask to please fix him. why dont i think that will work? grr...

oh well, maybe kelly's MIL will send me some helpful advice.

suite 204

its late and i, as usual, cannot sleep. so, i will tell you guys about my visit to the Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Specialist. yea, i had another visit to that dude today and i will continue to see him at least twice a year until one of us relocates or dies.

the good news remains, i do not have a hole of any kind in my left eardrum. BUT, the eardrum is retracted into my middle ear so you can very cleary see the joint of my incus and stapes (dont quote me on those words. i think thats what the man said), which is potentially bad... one day... maybe.

why is it bad you ask? oh, let me tell you in my vague, potentially incorrect terms.

so, one day, as my eardrum continues to retract into my middle ear, it can be pinched between the joint of the incus and stapes. that can cause a tear (or something) and develop a cholesteatoma which is definately uncool. just check out that wiki picture. its gross.

his potential solution to my delima: attempt to pop my ears by pinching my nose closed and gently blowing. apparently people can pop their ears this way or so he tells me. this MIGHT encourage my eardrum to de-retract and back off of that joint. you know, give the joint some breathing room. stupid ear drum, moving his shit in too soon, all up in the joint's personal space.

anywho, if the eardrum gets too much cozier, then i might end up with a tube in the ear anyhow to help regulate the pressure and hopefully prevent it from getting pinched. having a tube installed in my head is way easier and (shockingly) more comforting than having an real surgery to remove a freakin tumor from my nogin. thats way too close to my brain and junk to place lasers, or knives, or poking sticks or anything else one might use to remove a tumor.

oh wells. it doesnt hurt. i can hear. i'll go see him again on october 3rd.

**please dont quote me on of this. as usual, i dont really know what i'm talking about, but i like letting the little gnome that lives in my head have his say now and again. husband is sick of listening to him.


just because i havent perv'd anyone out lately.

what: south park. episode: "canada goes on strike!" me: BAHAHAH!

here's the link to the original samwell video. i know. its old internet news, but, thanks to my SIL and her boyfriend (theBrettlet), "what what in the butt" has a special place in my heart. so many reasons. the burning cross, the chocolate starfish references, OOOKay, samwell's incrediable flexible neck, the stylish fashions, single sided conversations, hip dance moves, and so much more.

i feel you watching me...
over there...

mary, if you're reading this, i'm sorry i reminded you of this video...

anyone want to swab things up their nose?

i sure do. i started using zicam medicated cold swabs today and i've already noticed a difference. granted it looks like i'm putting clear snot up my nose (feels like it too), but i swear my cough and sore throat have magically scurried off! actually i feel a lot of drainage on the back of my throat, but thats a good sign in terms of my cold recovery. its about dang time too!!!

other than the new found love for sticking things up my nose, things are same old, same old. i pulled out ye olde suitcase so i could start packing for our venture up to seattle next week. we also received the portable dvd player we ordered for the trip and car use. its cute.

oh! and i joined a new blog with KS and Kristi called Mommy's Cupboard. so, if anyone is having dinner delimas or want to see what kind of foodies we believe ourselves to be, then check us out!

well, i believe its time to take the boogerbear to the park. i hope everyone is having super-duper, fantastic days!!!
