Way. Too. Early.

I drove down Westheimer yesterday, and almost hit the car in front of me when I drove by the shopping center called Highland Village. They are ALREADY all decked out for Christmas! Lights on all the palm trees, big red bows on several of the stores, wreaths. The whole nine yards. I can't believe it. It's not even HALLOWEEN for God's sakes! I'm appalled.

Do You Smell That?

I ran in the store this afternoon to pick up a few things, mainly some produce, but I went looking for a card for my Dad's birthday, too. I'm standing in the card aisle, with Drew in the shopping cart, and all of a sudden I smell It. The unmistakable smell of Poopy Diaper. As I was just running in a for a few things, I didn't bring the diaper bag in with me, just a burp rag. Of course. So I just told Drew he'd have to sit in it until we get home. I bend down to make sure, but I don't smell anything. Huh. I stand back up, move a few feet away, and catch a big whiff again. So I smell the backside this time. Nada. Drew's pooh's typically give themselves away, but I was gettin' nothin' when I actually smelled his diaper region.

I could only concur that someone came down the card aisle, paused by my baby to drop some produce, and walked away, leaving the unsuspecting baby as the culprit! How dare they!?!

Sure enough, I get home, and there's no pooh. I hope that person feels better for blaming a baby for their stinky farts. Shame on them!

Wordless Wednesday

About how I feel today....

I'm a bit behind this week. We went to Wes and Roxi's wedding in NOLA last weekend and had a great time! My folks came to be Drew Bear's baby-sitters, so we could stay and feel like adults, with beverages and everything. We even got to parade through the streets after the reception with a band and cops stopping traffic and everything! It was way cool. Except that it was hot and muggy that day. Would have been nice for a bit of cooler weather. Oh well.

And this week I've just been trying to get caught up. Not much going on other than that. Not much time for the internet these days, what can I say? Taking care of an infant is a full-time job. I have to remind myself sometimes that even though I got nothing accomplished today, including bathing myself, I still am doing a good job, in that my son is fed (well-fed, did I mention he's 22 pounds?), dressed, and happy. It's hard, considering what I did for a living in my previous life was very project/results-oriented. But I figure this project is a work-in-progress, with an extended contract. Too bad it doesn't pay more.... :)

10 on Tuesday

10 TV Shows I'd Like To Have On DVD
Actually, I never watched much tv as a kid, as we only had 3 channels and never really watched much. TV was a treat at my Mu's house. Gee, I'm from the sticks, huh?

  1. Sex and the City--I already do, actually, but I'm still including it, it's my list!
  2. Friends--because I want to watch all in a row, and syndication doesn't cut it
  3. Seinfeld
  4. Midsomer Murders
  5. Northern Exposure--We only have Season 1
  6. Gilmore Girls--V. sad it's over
  7. Magnum--who wouldn't want more of Tom Selleck?
  8. Rick Steves--because it always inspires me to travel
  9. Pride and Prejudice--I know it's a mini-series, but it was made-for-TV!
  10. Law and Order

Monday Craziness

Bubba is sick. He stayed home today and has mainly slept, thank God. He's being an ok patient this time, he's usually a big baby about it, but he's actually listening to Nurse Katie and taking his medicine.

I, also, have a sniffle, which I am putting down to allergies, as I have no fever or aches like Bubba does. Only the sneezes that occasionally throw me into fits. It's no fun. I bought 10 boxes of Kleenex at the store, just in case this lasts a while.

Speaking of the store, it is CRAZY in that place on Monday! I usually wait and go on Tuesday, as that's usually when the freshest goods are in, but I think Monday is the day of the best sales. I don't have a lot of space for storing extra food, so I usually don't go in for the 10/$10 steals (except on the Kleenex this time), I will only buy a few of the sale items, mainly what I need. What can I say, no storage in NYC has scarred me. Anyway, I'm glad I left the Munchkin at home with Daddy (with strict instructions NOT to touch him unless absolutely necessary!), because it would have taken me much longer.

Speaking of the Munchkin, he is thankfully NOT affected by our sniffles. He had a fever on Friday, way before Bubba ever showed any symptoms, but since then, nada. Not yet, anyway. The only thing I forgot at the store was the jumbo-size hand-sanitizer with pump feature. Might be nice to stave off the germies over the next few days. Oh well, I think of it as just strengthening his immune system.
