Zombies are Attacking!
Published on Saturday, January 31, 2009 by This is the stuff I live for. Zombies are attacking Austin, Texas. Or at least that is what two road signs declared during a busy morning commute. Apparently, hackers managed to cut the padlocks on the signs and program this warning about zombies attacking. For anyone who has seen I AM LEGEND, I'm sure they glanced nervously to their right, expecting a zombie ...
Crying over Spilled Milk
Published on Thursday, January 29, 2009 by Yesterday, timing was everything. I had to feed my son and get him to scouts by six. I had 45 minutes for these two important tasks, including drive time.  Isn't this when the most unexpected happens?  My unexpected was an entire gallon of milk.  A gallon of milk that had fallen over.  A gallon of milk whose weight forced the cap off.  A gallon of milk that po...
Top Ten Bad Names for Children
Published on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 by My cousin is a nurse who lives in a normal midwestern town.  She sees children's names often.  And her stories of those children's names never cease to amaze me.  So here is my top ten list of the worst names people have named their children: 10. Babie Boi.  How can this child ever join the football team? 9. I.V.  This came from a mother having medications ...
Today I got Botox!
Published on Thursday, January 22, 2009 by Today I got myself some Botox Injections... but not where you think!  I have gastroparesis.  Simply put, my stomach does not work anymore, thus the name, "paralyzed stomach."  Long story short - if you attempt to eat, the food sits in your stomach and begins to hurt.  You feel like you have morning sickness all day, and you begin to look at food as something pa...
Funny X-Ray
Published on Wednesday, January 21, 2009 by I am a computer tech for a local hospital.  Yesterday I had a ticket for a computer in the ENT department.  It happened to be in their reading room.  On the wall was an X-Ray viewer with an X-Ray lit up.  This image was actually put on "authentic X-Ray film."  It was an unexpected moment that made me laugh out loud.  I must work for a very important hospital - a...
I am a Magnet for Gross
Published on Saturday, January 17, 2009 by Tonight my daughter asked for a bowl of ice cream and I was happy to oblige.  I don’t eat sweets during the week, but on the weekends I allow myself a little treat.  As I was scooping it for her, I took a snitch or two on the side.  Was that a hair?  No, couldn’t be.   But then as I raised the creamy, ever-so-wonderful treat to my lips, I felt the tou...
Shopping with Children and Rats
Published on Tuesday, January 13, 2009 by I have figured out a wonderful way to keep children occupied while grocery shopping.  Are you ready for this one?  A week ago I was alone in a local grocery store and heard a man call out a surprised expletive (let's just say it rhymed with "oh spit!") while pointing in my general direction.  I turned just in time to see a rat piddle paddle across the floor (tha...
How to Make Snow
Published on Saturday, January 10, 2009 by Why have so many of us adults forgotten to believe?  Last night, my soon to be eight year old told me how to make it snow.  Yes, she learned in school how to make it snow.  And she believed.  That is the beauty of children.  Their innocence, paired with their ability to be open to new ideas and concepts.  Somehow the word got out yesterday that there is a...
Our Greatest Fear: Chuck E Cheese!
Published on Sunday, January 4, 2009 by Yesterday something I have been avoiding for about 8 years finally crossed my path.  It was inevitable once I gave birth to my third child.  It had to be.  And it came.  I had to enter the doors of.... <hold your breath> Chuck E Cheese.  The last time I was in there, my first (and only, at the time) child was having a blast. (I, on the other hand, was cr...
Christmas Fail Part Two
Published on Wednesday, December 31, 2008 by Remember the picture of my son who fell asleep with his hand in the Doritos bag?  Apparently, this kid can fall asleep just about anywhere.  When his body deems it time, he will plain fall out.  This is him at 5:00 p.m. on Christmas day.  We had just arrived at Grandma’s, when he made a failed attempt at getting to the couch before falling a...
Christmas Fail!
Published on Sunday, December 28, 2008 by Christmas Fail.  Let's set it up for you.  The only thing my oldest wanted was the Guitar Hero World Tour game.  Expensive, yes - but that was all he wanted.  When pressed for more ideas, he simply said, "I don't need anything else Mom... you don't have to get me anything."  My little boy has grown up.  Two months ago, before I had purchased anything else - I...
Not for You!
Published on Friday, December 19, 2008 by Yesterday I had a few minutes to kill before I picked up my daughter. Across the street from the school? An Asian market – yes! I love shopping in this store. I always purchase Panko bread crumbs, candied ginger, and occasionally noodles for Pho soup. With Christmas (and my mother) on my mind, I visited the furthest aisle, containing wonderful Asian dishes and...
