filler post

I'd like to blog about my trip to San Diego but am waiting on some photos.

So in the meantime, here are a few fillers to read, but good ones.

Caring for your Introvert
I don't consider myself 100% introvert, however I definitely do have these tendencies so I found this article good reading and kind of funny

Two compliments I got today:
Coworker: Thank you! You're my hero!
Friend: Thank you! Ultimate Game advice worked!

if its not one thing its another

Ahh the stress, I am marinating in it!
Back to back ear infection kid, brakes going out on my car ($400!!) and flooded basement have left me totally wound up with stress. Having to deal with things almost completely alone gets old after a while! I was up till after midnight between cleaning up the flood, washing the soaked clothes, and packing lunches and stuff. Oh well I guess what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. Or kills you, but slowly over time. ack.
pity party for me! who wants to come !
er, what i mean is, i am woman hear me roar? Thats right, I can handle ANYTHING!

This comic strip is hilarious, but (((WARNING))) very critical of Christianity!!
So if you are unable to have a sense of humor about religion, don't CLICK HERE. For the rest of you, enjoy! Some are better then others, so read a bunch of them.

Well, a largely uneventful weekend, which was A-OK by me since I haven't really been feeling well lately. Actually, not entirely uneventful: Saturday morning I spent in the E.R. to get antibiotics for my son's ear infection. big weekend fun.

Saw Oceans 13, which was entertaining but not much more then that. Sunday V helped me with my yard which looked like an abandoned lot since I killed all of the weeds a few weeks ago, leaving giant bare spots in the yard amongst tall unkempt grass, since the manual push mowers I have pretty much suck ass. It was sooo awesome of him to offer to help, I never would have asked, and I have no idea how long it would have taken me to get to it on my own (forever??) He weed-wacked it down to a reasonable length, then we hoed up the bare spots and added some potting soil, then covered each spot with this aquamarine colored fuzz that is a mix of fertilizer and grass seeds. So now the lawn looks really sci-fi but anyway, supposedly in 7-14 days new grass should be growing. Cross your fingers!
Now I know why my friend Aaron 'outsources' all of that stuff, lawn looks great and you never have to sweat and get dirty on the weekend! But actually, for me it was painless when doing it alongside V. Its doing it alone that is the suck. 100 bonus boyfriend points awarded. :)

So, I don't know if you've ever had to give a sick child liquid medicine, but believe me, its an ordeal. I'd rather take part in almost any other task. Nevertheless, I have in the past tasted many awful medicines, such as Robotussin which is gross, or Nyquil which tastes like liquid satan. So, I know it tastes bad but you just suck it up and gulp it down quickly, make a face, and move on with your life. So, a little bit of moaning and gagging is tolerable, but after a while its like, just drink the damn stuff and lets move on, kid! Which is how I felt about it until last night, dose 2 of antibiotics. The poor kid looked mortified, horrified, petrified, and even terrified, in addition to any other number of 'fied's.

I'm like, enough moaning, just drink it already, how bad could it be? It smells like bubble gum! Then I stick my finger in there and put it in my mouth to prove it. For the first second, a sweet bubblegummy flavor, and a smug look starts to cross my face. This isn't bad at all, it tastes like, cand.... then, out of nowhere, my mouth is assaulted by vilest most heinous flavor I've ever experienced, including my mother's cooking (just kiddin!!) I feel like the rat must feel after it takes a bite of that poisoned cheese... oh crap, this can't be good. Worse even, the flavor lingers and matures on my toungue - bleck! This is really the worst stuff i've ever put in my mouth, and that was only one pinky-tip of the foul stuff! Oh the job of a parent, forced to give a poor sick kid such horrid dreck in the name of love. *sigh*

Well anyway, my hats off to brave kids everywhere who are able to choke that stuff down.
But a spoonful of blueberry cheesecake icecream *does* help the medicine go down. :)

COOL news story of the day:

WiTricity Gives Power Without Cords
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- How many power cords does it take for Massachusetts
Institute of Technology researchers to make a light bulb glow? None. They've come up with a way to make a 60-watt bulb glow by sending energy wirelessly from a device across the room. The breakthrough was published in the online version of the journal Science. The scientists have dubbed their finding WiTricity.

It's not a new concept, but scientists had dismissed wireless juice as inefficient because energy generated by charging devices radiates in all directions. But leave it to an MIT physics professor to make it work. Researchers used specially tuned waves that radiate less to send the energy. The key is to get the recharging device and the gadget that needs power on the same frequency, similar to how a radio picks up only one station at a time.


So this past weekend was insane, between having a rescue dog delivered Friday night to deciding, also Friday night, to indeed drive to the Outer Banks, NC Saturday morning, and then deciding Saturday morning to take the dog with us, it was an exhausting stressful, emotional whirlwind!

Anyway, it was beautiful in Corolla, NC and the beach house was astounding. Considering my beach experiences as a child consisted of camping out at the state park at Assetique Island with the wild horses (cool) and the mosqitos and biting flies (VERY VERY NOT COOL!), this was UNBELIEVABLE. Just look at the photos! No not just one floor or section of this house, but the entire thing!!

Crazy ! I almost had a nervous breakdown about getting the rescue dog, who came with the name Dewberry although we aren't sure if we will keep calling him that or not. For now we have been, though, or Dewby for short, which also means teddy bear in hebrew. Unfortunately its also another word for weed but whatever!
