I am on the Bandwagon Now!

So after all the hype I finally broke down and bought the book....yes, Twilight!

OMG! I have never read a book so fast! I ignored many things yesterday to just sit and read. It was amazing! You HAVE to get this book! I cannot wait to read the next three and see the movie!

So what it's a tween book!

I now have Edward Cullen on my mind at ALL TIMES!

I swear I am not vain!

I had the perfect day planned...

it included a 11:45am hair appt to have my hair straightened (I know Hairgirl you didn't want me to do it but I hated my curly hair). The appointment went great until the end when I asked the girl why one side was uneven. Here's how it went from there...

TG: Um, what is up with this side? Why is it so uneven looking?
Stylist: Well it is because it is so thin.
TG: Oh I know my hair has always fine but this seems different.
Stylist: No I said thin, not fine. Your hair is thinning. You need to start using hair growth shampoo etc. to get your hair to stop thinning.
TG: WTF? Seriously (point where I almost start crying)

OK, WTF? My hair is thinning? Like falling out? Now I have to use special shampoos and rub some foam on my hairline? Did I mention I am not even 35?

I am not a vain person. Today I have on NO makeup, sweats and running shoes. But I have to have HAIR! Seriously?

Of course I have made an emergency haircut appt with Hairgirl in an effort to find someway to make it look thicker but now I am all stressed! My great grandma was completely BALD! Her hair slept on the table by her bed next to her teeth. Is that next?

Oh boy! What is Titan Boy gonna think when he wakes up next to a bald girl that used to be his wife?

Here comes crazy...

So we are quickly approaching THAT TIME OF YEAR! You know the one, never enough hours in the day, too many things on the to do list, etc. etc. etc. I am ready this year....I have stocked the freezer with dinners, made the plans for the two Christmas Shop A Thons, remodeled the store....

Oh who am I kidding?

Ready? Me? Yeah that's funny!

P.S. The freezer is stocked but if you don't take dinner out the night before you still have to order takeout!

Busted Again.....

The oldest Mini Tahoe seems to have alittle problem these days...

Trying to BUY stuff on the internet. He gets all the way to the checkout page before he realizes he doesn't have a credit card. Our fabulous nanny caught him again the other day. The first time he got caught did not end well form my check card...

Last but not least...

Ok so I hardly ever talk about the littlest tahoe. I guess he will have to get used to that in life cause there are no pictures of him anywhere, not even the thought of a baby book or anything. The mother guilt is kicking in here. I know I am not the only one here who has more kids than she knows what to do with and has forgotten some details as she gets through but I digress....

The reason I started this post this way is because...

Today my nanny was sick so I got to play "mommy" all afternoon. This started with picking up little stud (littlest tahoe's new nickname) from preschool. After the shocked look on his face wore off in the carpool lane we headed back to my office to see if I could still get some work done. Of course this included a swing thru the golden arches drive thru to grab some lunch. The whole time we were in line he kept saying "growns peeece". After the fifteenth time I finally figured out this meant playground please. Due to the fact that I had tons of work to do I said "no not today but maybe another day". Little stud thinks for a minute and says "cookie then". Umm what? "COOKIE PEEECE" comes quickly from the backseat again. "Oh you want a cookie?" Little stud says "YES!" and I am thinking, ok not too bad compromise.

That was until he insisted on eating the three pack of cookies before the chicken nuggets. And you know what is the worst part? I let him!

I am such a sucker for a cute little blond haired blue eyed boy in a madras carseat that it is embarrassing. I would have argued with Sassy Tahoe until we both were out of breath on this issue but no, Little Stud has mommy right where he wants me!

Please explain....

Why when someone you know has a stomach bug do they have to give you details about it when you didn't even ask? Just call me and say "sorry I might be a little late today I might have a stomach bug" or how about NO DETAILS AT ALL! I don't want to know that you have had the "squirts" or the "loosey goosey's" or any other thing you call it! That is your business NOT MINE!

Personally it's just gross to think about and that is exactly what your making the person your describing it to think about! JUST STOP THE MADNESS I CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE!

My Turn!!!

Oh yea, it was finally my turn......

No you did not misread that, I got all of them and the attack began early last week.It went a little something like this...

Tuesday: Tahoe Girl wakes up and is freezing cold all day! But no big deal because it was freezing cold outside and the heat isn't working at the store. Titan Boy is out of town so I take some advil and get in bed early to watch tv.

Wednesday: Wake up and throat hurts along with a stiff sore neck, oh and some swollen glands..decide I am not waiting around to get worse so I head to work and then the doctor...Doctor is fabulous and precedes to let me know that I am doomed! Here are my Best/Worst Case Scenarios...

Best Case Scenario: This just turns in to a really bad cold and you feel bad for 3 to 7 days
Worst Case Scenarios (Yes there were 3) 1. This turns into a sinus infection 2. This turns into an ear infection 3. this turns into brochitis

With that knowledge in hand (along with 2 prescriptions) I head home to deal with my lovely health forecast. Take the painkiller Doc gives me and go to bed.

Thursday starts off OK but I have to give myself a peptalk in the driveway just to get the kids to school. As I am leaving to get Sassy to school. Mini#1's school calls and says to come get him he barfed all over the bus! Great, now I need another pep talk cause I am stuck with barf boy all day. I get everyone to their respected place and head to work cause I have serious deadlines that I have to be met. Tell myself as soon as the boxes are sealed I can go put my PJ's on and go to bed. I finally got home at 6:30pm. Thank goodness Titan Boy came home that night! He helped get everyone in the bath or bed and did not bat an eye that I crawled straight on the couch and started to cry! I lost it! Finally I get in the bad...I WILL feel better tomorrow!

Friday: The Plague arrives in full force at 4:10am. I wake up and just fall apart. Everything hurts, bones, muscles, the hair on my head, EVERYTHING!!!!! I cant even think about anything but throwing myself in front of the school bus! I crawl back into bed where I stay until Sunday afternoon. I missed everything, Halloween, Candy, Parties, Pumpkins, but worst of all getting the mini's all ready to trick or treat! Yep, I missed it all! I even had to break down and call my mom to come take care of me. She called the doctor back and then went to get me medicine from the pharmacy (and a strawberry milkshake cause mt throat was so swollen I could not swallow) It was horrible! I don't ever remember being this sick in my whole life!

By Sunday when I wasn't getting better I went back to the doctor. He told me the best way to fix me was to cut my head off! I told you it was bad. Turns out the meds they gave me were not string enough so here's mi diagnosis and the cure....

Diagnosis: Sinus Infection, Double Ear Infection, Upper Resparitory (sp?)Infection, and Tonsillitis even though I have not had tonsils since 1991! The doctor actually said "Oh My" when he saw my throat. Thats not something you want to hear from a doctor, EVER!

The Cure: Stronger Antibiotics, Stronger Pain Killer, Steroids and a Big Shot of Something in the ARSE! (The shot hurt like a son of a bitch)

Now 24 hours after 2nd Doctor's visit. I am cured!!!! Back to normal.Feel Great!

Couldn't we have just done this from the beginning?

Tahoe Girl all drugged up but better!
