busy, busy, busy

I have been so busy with my daughter and just life in general that I haven't had much time to post here.

But.. there is some great great news for me. I FINALLY got a new computer. It's mine mine mine and I LOVE it!

i am reading..

Now I am reading I'd Trade My Husband For a Housekeeper. I saw it at BJ's, picked it up, and laughed at the "you need this book if.." on the back. ("You spend more time with Mr. Potato Head than your husband," "You rank sex below clipping your child's fingernails, calling your in-laws, and showering," etc) So, I had to buy it.

I don't know if it's totally for me, but there are some good points made within it. For instance.. "Being happy means making peace with your life, and not blaming your spouse for your losses. The harder you try to hold on to who you were before you had kids, the harder it is on the relationship."

And although it came first, I am looking forward to also reading I Was a Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids.

more on mother's day

If you want to know more about why my mother's day was the "worst mother's day ever"- I will elaborate only a little.

I got a card "from" my daughter and a framed picture of her. I tried to explain to my husband how much this first mother's day meant to me and how much I had been looking forward to it (and maybe a little show of appreciation for all I do and all I went through to bring said daughter into the world). The response I got made me more sad. So..

I took my daughter to the park and we watched the ducks for a little while, but it was a little too windy and we left. The woman at the drive thru at the bagel place (where I got my breakfast from) was the only person that day to wish me a happy mother's day.


However, my parents sent me a card. And there cards from my grandmother and sister (and her family) waiting for me at the post office on Monday.. and that was nice.

more love for people

On my way home on Friday, a woman in a dark green car cut me off. I was going straight through a green light; when I got to the middle of the intersection.. this woman suddenly decided she was going to go left in front of me. I slammed on my brakes and the car behind me almost hit me. The woman in the dark green car flipped me off as she sped on her way. So.. ya, that's a new one.

i don't understand..

There's been a few church signs here and there that I wished I'd had my camera ready for.. but this one is definitely the best! I drove around the block again and held up traffic just to get a good picture of it.

can you tell?

These are both medium dark roast coffees from dunkin donuts. Can you tell which one is "regular" (aka 2 creams, 2 sugars) and which one is "one cream, two sugars"?

Am I going to have to start asking for "half of a cream"?

no artic mocha today?

Last week I went to Cosi for lunch. I looked at the menu for a minute on the way in- but why? I always order the same thing. A woman in the back called hello to me- they are so friendly there. 

I decided to try a raspberry mojito lemonade and I went up to the register to order. "No arctic mocha today?" she asked. She completely caught me off guard and I was a little embarrassed. Do I go to Cosi that often?? I laughed a little and said "naw".

here's some hand sanitizer in your eye!

My daughter would not take a nap and was doing "backflips" and "somersaults" in her crib, so I figured she must need her diaper changed. I checked. Yup, she pooped. 

I took off the dirty diaper and cleaned her up. Then, before I put the new one on I went to get a little sanitizer for my hands. There must have been a little dried up on the spout because it shot a stream straight towards my eye. 

I stood there for a second with my right eye closed. Nothing. Thank God I shut my eye in time, I thought to myself. Wait. No. OMG that hurts! I half keeled over on a nearby chair. That lasted about 5 seconds.. then I ran to the bathroom. 

I washed my eye out until I was finally able to open it. I went back to my daughter (who was in her crib this whole time.. don't worry) she was having a fantastic time in her crib playing with the new diaper that hadn't been put on her yet. She was also having a great time rolling around in all the pee she had let go while I was washing my eye out. SO much pee in fact that it ran off the crib mattress and onto the floor!

TGIF no?
