in time

Filed under: maybe it's me, perfect strangers — notsojenny @ 8:18 am

in last week i have…

  • had the term “blathering blatherskite” stuck in my head, a quick google search tells me i got it from Ducktales.  holy random memory.
  • decided what stroller i want to get when we’re finally baby ready.  good thing i know now so i can start saving up, it ain’t cheap.
  • decided i hate hate hate my birth control.  i only feel like a functioning member of society when i’m on my week off (i don’t bother with placebos).
  • realized that going off the pill would also kill my face… boy does it break out when not being controlled internally.  i need a local dermatologist STAT.
  • cleaned the shit out of this house with M.  we had to get it ready for my sister’s family to visit.  now there are really only 2 rooms left that need complete overhauls – the garage & office.  they’re going to take a while but it should be done in time to have a housewarming party before we’ve been in the house a full year.
  • been reminded that when you work out it doesn’t really hurt much the next day but don’t be fooled… the day after that i could barely walk, not exaggerating, i’m that out of shape
  • been faced with my tendency to act in haste – in an effort to save $80 i ended up wasting $360 because i didn’t test it out first and the “pilates” class at the gym is Not.  it’s aerobics with a ball and mat and an instructor that says “navel to spine” every so often.  i found out she’s not even mat certified.  great.  it looks like i’m going to have to try the Pilates show in my living room  and maybe try a Zumba class at the gym to so i feel better about the membership i’m locked into for a year  : (
  • learned that sound indeed does travel further in the cold (at least that’s what M told me, he also told me tv superman and movie superman were related – False)
  • found out that overnighting a single key to CT costs $30.  THIRTY DOLLARS!
  • started taking my women’s one a day and fish oil pills again.  i felt like i was doing something good for myself until i read the bottle and realized i’m supposed to be taking 3 a day!  ugh, so much effort…
  • ordered my long awaited wellie warmers and not only got free shipping but they arrived just in time for a cold rainy weekend!



~ today i learned… pilgrims sent confections (like sugar wafers, sweet plums, marzipan) to their affianced for Valentine’s since sugar was a rare product and it made the value of the sweets great ~



  1. Wellie warmers? Genius!

    And speaking of vitamins, when I went to my lady doctor last I asked for a pre-conception check-up and she told me that instead of taking pre-natals, I could take 2 Flintstones. Score! I think I shall get the gummy ones :)

  2. – Love Ducktales. One of my most favorite childhood cartoons.
    – I went off the pill to give my body a break since I had been on it non-stop for 6 years. My face hates me. It looks terrible. And now I’m freaking out that I haven’t gotten my period even though I know I am super irregular. TMI? Sorry.
    – I have heard EXCELLENT things about Zumba. A bunch of girls that I used to competitvely dance with in high school are now Zumba teachers. I wish I could find a class around here that didn’t require you to join a gym because I just don’t have the money for that.
    – Apparently to overnight a SET of keys from Maryland to CT costs $50! Be glad it was only one key :)
    – Where did you get your Wellie warmers? I’ve been looking for a pair.

  3. I would like to thank you for mentioning Ducktales because now I totally have the theme song stuck in my head. It seems like that this one show from our childhood that not only does everyone vividly remember, but everyone LOVES!

  4. The day after pain is so overwhelming but it’ll all pay off on the scale
