Think I'll hold off on the pregnancy test. I was more careful with what I ate yesterday and my weight gain was lowered by 2 pounds. I think I will wait 7 or 8 more months to be "surprised" that the "baby" I am carrying is just a "food baby". I'll be so relieved that I won't mind having bought a new wardrobe for my expanding waistline. A few new frocks for me will be a heck of a lot cheaper than two headed sweaters for my non-existent mutant baby. And I won't have to leave my family to tour with my baby and the circus we would have had to join! See there is a bright side here!
More Good News
After a few nail-biting days, I found out that my car will be totaled. Which is kind of cool. To be able to add to the story, in a nonchalant way ".... Yeah, the car was totaled."
ONLY when you are involved in a wreck, that is not your fault, that you and your passenger can walk away from without a scratch! We'll just leave out that whimpy crap about sore muscles, tingling arm and high blood pressure. That stuff isn't going to up my cool-quotient.
I now have 4 days to buy a new Town & Country and take delivery before the dealer incentives expire. *deep breath* *taking a moment to recite the Serenity Prayer* (just the 1st 4 lines)
O.K. We can do this. And when I say "We", I pretty much mean my husband. He has been researching and reading all the important reports that one should read while looking for a new vehicle. He's merely pretending that I have options. I play along and give my opinions, as if they count! Thankfully he's a gadget guy and will make sure I get much more than I think I need.
Last time he made sure I had automatic doors that I thought excessive. Now I can't imagine doing without this feature. My stripped-down rental car is a daily reminder of how dependent I have become on this automatic-chivalry option.
Mail - Call
Another letter arrived in the mail from a concerned attorney. I also missed a phone call from yet another Chiropractic Group. I tell you, I live in a very caring community!
First Day of School
Today was the first day of school for the boys. Everything seemed to go off without a hitch. I will count that as a Good Day. I have decided to ask my oldest & baddest boy on a daily basis if he was "Nice" Today. (see yesterday's post, Manic Monday). I just asked him and he gave me the thumbs up sign that he was indeed "nice".
Yesterday I had my oldest son at work with me and he helped me buy a carload of goods at Sam's Club in record time. I had made a list ahead of time and put it in order of the path we would travel. We came up with a new slogan that I will recommend the Principal add to her short list.
"It's Good To Be Organized"I think this is more relevant to academic ( and domestic) achievement! Bill Gates didn't get where he is today by being "NICE". (my name isn't NICE Momma). I may have to join the PTO and lobby for a new slogan.
Speaking of being organized, I need to hop off my computer, hop into the shower and then off to bed. I have a full day ahead tomorrow and need to be ready! It's been "nice" catching up with you!
