  • The Mister is out of town until tomorrow morning and that means I have the girls overnight by myself.  I had my mom stay with me the last time this happened, but I need to learn to do it on my own.  Bedtime last night was acceptable.  Girls woke up once overnight.  Also acceptable.  I hope we keep up the good work tonight.  It helps me feel like a rockstar to be able to do this.

  • Speaking of The Mister, he decided that instead of replacing our broken toilet seat with a normal toilet seat, he was going to get something he claimed he used at Sears (always a great way to start a project)….the Big John.  What is the Big John? It’s a larger toilet seat.  Now, I was fine with that but since we’ve gotten it, I have yet to get used to it.  I feel like a child that could fall in at any time.  And I’m a large lady…so yeah.  But The Mister is dead set for it…he calls it the Cadillac of Toilet Seats. If by “Cadillac” you mean huge and I could sleep inside of it, yes.

  • I’m waiting to hear about this fellowship for school and I was very zen about it…until the end of last week. Now I’m constantly refreshing my inbox.  Any day now….

  • I had my first alcoholic beverage post-pregnancy this weekend.  It was my standby: a vodka cranberry.  I did get giddy and giggly after finishing it. But then I went and ate some food and was fine, just drowsy.  Low tolerance, for the win.  Or loss. Or something.  When I got all giggly, The Mister cut me off.  Ha. Like I’d listen to that. The only thing stopping me was the high price tag at the ballpark.  Diapers ain’t cheap.

  • That photo above was the top google image when searching for “ain’t cheap.”  So the internet has won at making me laugh again.

cool

shoe me the receipts

  • Children as young as 12 can get free condoms delivered to them in California.  I’m sure there will be all kinds of indignant outrage about this.  But guess what? It’s a damn good idea.  If they only want to see what a condom is like and then make water balloons out of them (don’t judge me) fine. At least they’ve seen one.  If they’re going to use them, good…at least they have them.  Stop being prudish assholes and let’s just admit that it’s better to arm kids with precautionary measures than it is to see them become parents or get STIs before high school.

  •  Today marks a very important month for Stiggy’s Dogs, the nonprofit I work with that pairs rescue dogs as psychiatric service dogs with military veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury.  Every day throughout this month, you can vote for Stiggy’s Dogs to win a $250,000 grant.  The organization is great and on a personal note, this will help me be able to work for them more fully.  So…please vote.

What’s on my mind today…

I love the Loki gif.
I want a good tweet for number 1000.
I am extremely bored at work.

The Loki GIF is one of my faves I’ve found recently.

Bleh. Online retailers in Texas have to charge sales tax now. I think I just shop less in general now. I guess I do buy more of my staples locally, but we also have a ban on disposable grocery bags, and I always forget to put my bags back in my trunk, so I just run out of things.

Shopping less in general would probably be good for me.

A ban on disposable grocery bags would mean that I’d have to find a new way to clean the litterboxes. At least I reuse, right?

I also am loving the Loki gif. SO APPROPRIATE.

Goddam taxes invading online shopping now. Sonafabish. I will be outraged. But of course, it probably won’t stop me from shopping online, especially at Christmas, because it is so convenient. And I’d have to pay state tax ANYWAY so….

You talking about condoms for 12-year-olds reminds me that you can buy the morning after pill now if you’re 15. You’re right. Everyone needs to calm the fuck down and stop being so prudish. Granted, I wouldn’t be the happiest parent if my 12-year-old needed to use condoms, but it’s certainly better than getting an STD or getting pregnant at 12.

It is entirely too convenient to shop online and waste a ton of cash. A TON. But then it really saves me in other areas.

I’m sure you’d much rather buy Daughter Plan B or a condom than be a grandmother. I’m sure.
