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!

    Ducktales…woo-ooo!
