Put Me In, Coach!

He did really good at his first Astro's game, and Roy O got the win over Greg Maddux 3-1! He got to see 2 future Hall-of-Famers, who could ask for more for his first game?


I'm done. It was fabulous. HP#7 lived up to my expectations, and that's all I'll say so I don't spoil it for those of you who haven't read it.

But like cjh, I'm a little sad that it's over. I'm tempted to go back and read a few of the parts again, as I get so excited to see where something is going in the plot that I tend to rush through it. I've always done that, read too fast and miss some things. But that's ok, this is one book I feel I'll read several times over. Probably the whole series, actually. Much to Bubba's chagrin, as he hates when I read them because I tend to get immersed and do nothing else, and he doesn't understand why I would want to re-read something I've already read. But, that's the difference between him and me.

Now I can get busy watching the movies, as I have waited until I read all the books to see any of the movies.

Blog Interrupted

I'm reading Harry Potter #7 and don't have time to do that AND take care of Drew AND blog at the same time. So, until I finish, there will be a lack of new blogs to read. My apologies, but I know you all understand.

To keep you satiated, here's a picture of the munchkin swimming.

Yesterday I received BILL NUMBER 3 from the stupid hospital in NYC from when I fell in the street and spent the day in the hospital. I received the first bill before we even left NY back in March. I thought it was weird, as my actual hospital stay for the birth of my son had already been paid. So I called and gave them the right information and address, etc., and left it at that. I got ANOTHER bill in May, so I called AGAIN to give them the right information.

Now, when I got bill no. 3 yesterday, I was a bit miffed and called the insurance company directly to see what was going on, if they had denied my claim and why, etc. I called, and they have NO RECORD of receiving a bill for that date of service! WTF? So I figured that the hospital must have gotten it wrong, so I called THEM. Nope, they've submitted the bill about a dozen times (so said the irritated woman on the phone), and it's been denied every time. And, she said they would submit it ONE MORE TIME, then that was it. What does that mean? They'll come after me for the exorbitant amount of $$$ they want for said service?

I am about done with all this stupid mess. I have had to deal with the insurance people denying Drew's coverage because he's not on my plan, until I call them and remind them that yes, he's covered for 30 days on my plan. Why don't they know this? It's THEIR stupid plan! Anyway, I got another bill yesterday for some lab work done for Mr. Andrew Barron, so I asked the insurance lady about that one, too, and ONCE AGAIN, she said it was denied because he wasn't on my plan. Then she said, oh wait, yes he is! DUH!!! Arrggg....

Of the things that irritate me and just ruin my day....this tops the list.

You Know It's Hot....

when the cicadas are STILL singing at 11pm when you are trying to go to sleep.

Welcome to summer. I think I prefer the rain....at least it keeps the temperatures down!

To Shave or To Smell Lovely

This morning on Rachel Ray, Rachel was discussing the ONE thing she couldn't live without on a desert island. Well, she actually listed 3, but it's her show, so she can do what she wants. She chose her under-eye cream, razor, and breath-mints.


Then she had kind of an 'ask the audience' thing, and these women were standing up and telling what they COULDN'T live without on a desert island. I was appalled at these spoiled, shallow women! One silly girl said she couldn't live without her eye-lash curler. (Um, I don't even OWN one of these, but my make-up drawer is another post....it's very small. Mascara, yes. Eyelash curler, no.) Another girl said her Victoria's Secret bra. OK, I might want a bra on my desert island, but I'd rather just have a bikini and deal with it.

The icing on the cake was the woman who said she couldn't live without her Prada heels. I mean, PLEASE! I'm all about fabulous footwear, but I don't think I would choose them over toilet paper on my desert island.

What would you choose?

I think I would choose some sort of personal hygiene item, like deodorant or toothpaste or something of that nature.

Ooh, or maybe coffee (she says as she has cup no. 2 this morning).

I KNEW I was cool! :)

I know, 3rd post in a day. I'm on a roll...

You Are Austin

A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll.
You're totally weird and very proud of it.
Artistic and freaky, you still seem to fit in... in your own strange way.

Famous Austin residents: Lance Armstrong, Sandra Bullock, Andy Roddick

Movie Quote: Blast From the Past

Can anyone name this movie? I watched it today and was reminded how much I loved this movie.

'Sinead O-Rebellion! Shock me, shock me, shock me with your deviant behavior!'

Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

For the record, he loved it.

Let the messiness begin....
