I confess we lost the tv remote... We all remember seeing it somewhere different, yet its in none of those places
I wonder if all of the attacks on her family finally got to her... Alaska's a whole different world than the lower 48, and there's definitely not the same scale of media interest up there....
I know I personally couldn't handle people constantly criticizing my family/kids... But then again, that's just one reason of many that I would never go into politics...
Yeah... I heard it was quite rambled.
I've heard theories that she is quitting
- to get a jump start on a presidential campaign.. (doesn't sound smart to me.. )
- to promote her book, for which she got a multi-million dollar deal
- to try out for SNL
- to persue acting.
lol.. People's theories are as all over the place as her speech is said to have been.
I watched her speech last night and rolled my eyes the entire time. She really resigned for the better of Alaska - because she didn't want to cost the state any more resources or $$ to fix the rumours about her? Riiiiiiight.
I confess.. My MIL is awesome...
We had wanted to go out last night, and didn't even have to ask her to watch Audri. Before we could ask her, she asked us if they could keep her last night. They'd been so busy lately, and missed her.
Then I get a text this am, from SIL saying "Mom says she wants to keep Audri for another night."
I talked to DH about it and we decided that would be great. Esp. since I have an OB appointment tomorrow. Now we don't have to worry about taking her to the appointment with us, AND I get a good full night's sleep before my appointment!
I confess that I think I forgot to put sunscreen on the trio's faces. I know for a fact I did their entire bodies, and mine, but they all have little sun-kissed faces right now and I'm blanking on putting on the sunscreen. 2+ hours at the pool....and the possibility of no facial sunscreen.
I can say I ALMOST have a Master's degree in Biology. I was overwhelmed at the responses to a draft of my thesis (I was about a third of the way through it), put it in a box, and haven't touched it since. Anyone who finishes one of those gets big kudos from me cause I just couldn't do it. In hindsight, I probably never should have gone to grad school. The thesis and defending it terrified me from the start, and I just ended up avoiding it by quitting. My mother was so disappointed in me - I had finished my coarsework and my written comps.
I'll keep my fingers crossed you're done by your birthday.
I confess . . . .
. . . we were out of town and this is the first I've been on a computer since leaving work Thursday afternoon.
. . . Liam did GREAT with fireworks on Saturday.
. . . that in the last 3 days, Liam started walking, learned how to wave for the first time, and said his first word
. . . his first word was Dada.
. . . that last night was a crappy night with him waking up about every hour. I'm pretty sure it was a combo of teething and developmental leap processing.
. . . that Tredhed and I seem to be in the midst of an argument and haven't talked since he went back to his office, leaving me crying in mine.
. . . Monday's suck.
He said "When do you start?" and DH explained that it could be up to 2 weeks, and FIL says "2 WEEKS?! I sure as hell hope you start sooner than that!"
Well... so do we, but WE can't do anything to speed up the process!.
hmm.. I dunno.. I've not had the balls to try them.. I am scared they will actually taste like the nasty things they are supposed to.....I wonder if that's the combination they get to make the vomit flavor Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean . . . .
I confess MIL has had Audrianna since saturday afternoon, and I have felt completely lost as to what to do..
I confess I see the doctor - the ACTUAL doctor - in an hour and a half!! and I am getting nervous!
I confess we broke down and applied for food stamps until DH starts working. We have the interview tomorrow, and I am REALLY nervous about it. Asking for help is one thing I really don't like doing, and it hurts my pride, but I've gotta do what I've gotta do to take care of my family... right?
Grass has a surprisingly nice flavor, though.
OOH - does that mean you get an u/s today and might know the sex of the baby? COOL!
Yup - you gotta do what you gotta do. And besides, think of how nice it would be to shop for your own groceries so you don't have to survive on Cheerios for 3 days.
