Toothbrush

Yep, it appears I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel with this blog. I won't even try to convince you that I actually have things I could be doing now instead of sitting here writing about my toothbrush, but I get the feeling that you won't believe me so I'll let it go.

I own one of the most expensive types of toothbrushes you can buy. It's a Sonicare and they run over $100 unless you get lucky like I did and get a sale where they were selling a two-fer pack for $100 even.

A short answer to the question I just know is running through your head, "Why did she buy two toothbrushes for $100 even if it WAS a good sale?"....because I am OBSESSED with the health of my teeth. That's why, now on to the point of this blog....yep there is a point...keep reading and you'll get there...

My bathroom is wired all funky. YES this has to do with my toothbrush. The only way the one outlet works in my bathroom is when the light switch is turned ON. Since Christmas, the only way I've had to charge my Sonicare toothbrush is to leave the bathroom light on for a few hours every week.

Out of the blue today I caught a wave of GENIUS. I decided that buying light bulbs for my bathroom more often than any other room in my house is insane so I convinced myself that charging my toothbrush in ANOTHER room with NORMAL outlets would be better.

So I happily took my Sonicare out of the bathroom and plopped it and the base on my nightstand next to my bed. It's now charging in my bedroom sans light!! WOOOOOT!

DISCLAIMER: That was the climax of this entry. Anything I say at this point is mere junk and useless.

Anyways, I'm very excited that I've found a better way to charge my toothbrush. I really need a life. It's gone to desperate measures here. If anyone needs a life worse than me, I won't believe it.

Add me to the "Life Transplant List" ASAP before it gets worse, like getting excited when I don't find not one "old maid" in my bag of microwave popcorn....wait...I've already done that before......dammit!!

Priceless


1. Busch beer in cans is not cool. Any beer in cans is not cool.

2. Finding out that the very thing you were obsessing and worrying about for months is nothing to obsess and worry about is a GREAT feeling.

3. Communicating with someone you have not spoken to in a while is refreshing and rejuvenating.

4. Not being depressed for the first time in a long time feels awesome.

5. Having excruciating PMS cramps....not so awesome.

6. Keeping with all of your "better living through healthy choices" resolutions for a whole week makes me feel healthy and better.

7. Seeing your favorite NFL team lose to a bunch of fuckers.....not so healthy.

8. Knowing that it's only the Pre-season and the game doesn't count feels better.

9. Being so bored that I am creating useless and silly lists....depressing.

10. Counting down the minutes until my work day is over....excruciating.

11. That fucking canned Busch beer coming back to haunt me today.....regretful...but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Holy Shit

It's a holiday weekend and dh decided to tell me he plans on bring home some "frothy beverages" for our enjoyment for tonight.

See, the issue is that I decided to give up alcohol for three weeks. Since I'm a weekend lush, I figured a break would do me good.

That started when one of my best friends who is also a daddy told me that he hasn't picked up a drink in close to a month or so. My reaction was "Damn dude, you don't need a cold beer after a long, tough week?" And he replied, "nope". I said "How do you unwind then?" He said "I don't need to unwind." I said "But you have KIDS! I don't have any kids and I feel the need to "unwind" with alcohol every weekend...."

So that got me to seriously thinking....Do I really need booze to unwind at the end of the week...every week?

I decided that if a father of two teenagers can stay away from the "devil's water" for a month, then there should be NO reason why I can't put the shit down for a while too.

Besides, I've been trying to live more healthy. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day, slowly getting back to my low-carb diet, reading books again like the old days, ect.

This whole week I've stuck to everything. Until today. Dh is bringing home some beer and I am REALLY needing to unwind.....

SHIT SHIT SHIT....I need an intervention....I'm officially a weekend lush.

Things I Should Have Said Part One

This will probably make absolutely NO sense to you but that's fine. The point of this entry is to get these type of things off my chest in some way. I figured making it into a blog entry is healthier than saying these things outloud to myself...I'm sure my neighbors already think I'm crazy without my talking to myself...

1. To the bitch at that salon who waxed my bushy brows a few months ago: "I'm not a fucking circus freak. I realize my brows are thick, that's why I'm here. Let it go."

2. To the bitch at the nail salon: "Listen, it is healthier for my nails if I remove them with acetone than to keep getting them filled. I'm here giving you business so let it go."

3. To the bitch team lead who wouldn't recommend me for a promotion back in the day: "The reasons you are giving me as to why I'm not "leadership material" is whack and YOU know it. What is the REAL reason...c'mon...I won't tell anyone."

4. To the bitch who cut me off then flicked me off when I beeped my horn: "LISTEN BITCH, YOU CUT ME OFF. FLICK ME OFF AGAIN AND I'M RUNNING YOUR CAR OFF THE DAMNED ROAD!!"

5. To the bitch at the club that stared me up and down: "Got a problem? Wanna handle it?"

6. To the asshole who wouldn't leave me alone: "You know I'm taken. No I don't go out on dates with men who are not my man. Why are you always asking me out?"

7. To mom and dad: "Yeah, I did that. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have lied about it."

8. To my deceased friend the last time I saw him alive: "I would love to go with you to the liquor store. By the way, how have you been? How do you like your new town? Tell me about it."

9. To my grandma and Momma momma (mom's mom) before they died: "I love you."

10. To everyone I have ever pissed off and didn't realize it, or just didn't csre: "I'm sorry."

11. To someone close to me: "If you need to go I will understand. If you need your space I will understand. I don't want to hold you back. I love you."

12. To YOU: "Thanks for reading this and thanks for being my friend. *muah*"

No More Crabs For This Bitch!


It appears I have obtained a new allergy! I seem to be allergic to crab meat. Let me explain:

A couple of weeks ago, husband bought us two dozen crabs which he cleaned and prepared for us...yummmmmmm. I am a huge shell fish fan so I was in heaven smelling those things cooking.

I sit down to my feast and all is well.

The next morning I wake up and my lips are very puffy and very chapped. I figured it was because I ate very seasoned crab in 90 degree heat so I was filled with more salt than water which caused my lips to react that way. That was my theory.

For lunch I had more crabs...

Next morning, lips were worse. This time I had a small cold-sore looking bump on the edge of my lips and my lips were itching like mad.

This went on the whole week as I slowly ate through the crabs.

Then after crabs were finished, lips started healing up great. Sore went away, puffyness went down, itchiness stopped. Lips went back to normal, yay!!

I haven't touched crab since that time...then the other day I eat some seafood pasta salad that had lots of real crab meat....

Next morning, lips got puffy, itchy, and had a sore.

That's when I realized...I must be allergic to crab meat!!

Let's just hope I'm not allergic to ALL shell fish..OMG.

I See You Through ONE Eye....Yep...I'm Cool

I had a dream this morning that I was in the bathroom trying to put my left contact lense in my eye....I kept having major difficulty and I finally realized it was because that contact was the size of my hand!!! That didn't stop me from trying though. So what seemed like a long time in dream-world, I kept trying to fit a VERY impossibly, large, contact lense in my eye with no success....imagine that!

I finally woke up and thought I would open my contact lense case in real life and see something wrong with my left lense.

After inspecting that lense I determined that dreams do NOT translate into real life no matter WHAT those crazy "premonition" people say. *snicker*

I put my lenses in and go about my day.

Around 2:30pm my left eye feels like there is a hair in it...I rub it...still hurts...I rub more...still hurts. So I put in eye drops...it works for a min then goes back to feeling like a hair in my eye.

After rubbing for another few minutes I decided to get off my lazy ass and go to the bathroom to inspect my eye without the lense in it.

I take my contact out of my left eye and immediately see a huge tear in it. The tear is what's causing my uncomfort.

"Holy shit!" I say outloud. I am out of contact lenses and am overdue for my yearly eye exam....this can only mean two things.

1. That fucking dream was right...something bad DID happen to my left contact lense.

2. This is all my fault for putting off making my eye appt all these weeks.

So now I am working with only one good eye...my right contact lense is ok for now, thank God.

Time to make an emergency appt to my friendly Wal Mart Optomitrist for an eye exam and new contacts and maybe even glasses just in case this shit happens again, which knowing me, is bound to happen again.

Now I'm getting a fucking headache thanks to only being able to see out of one eye. This fucking sucks ass people....SUCKS ASS......

Light At The End Of My Tunnel

Things are looking up! After all the dark there is finally light at the end of this tunnel.

Work is getting better so far. Was just offered a position that I think I'll enjoy. With the holiday season on it's way for retailers (usually starts around Sept/Oct), there should be more available hours for me to work too.

And things with all of my friends are smooth for now as well. We're all one big happy family again! hehehe

The bad news is that due to lack of funds and scheduling issues our trip to Ohio was cancelled for now. But there is always next summer and better planning!

Either way, I'm feeling good and optimistic these days...yay me!!
