I had minor surgery this week. Ok, I'm being a baby. I had a mole removed in the dermatologist's office. I won't bore you with the details, but Remy colored in a corner of the room while I resigned myself to yet another scar and another story to tell on my body. It required stitches and I can't get it wet:
As you can see, I still have plenty of moles left. I should have told the Dr to take them too...all of them! Because I have a feeling I'll just keep coming back to have more and more removed over and over...but then I might cheat them out of their co-pays. Dangit.
Ok, so while I'm pouting about this, I am missing one child this week. Donny, my eleven year old has gone camping!! It's his first real camping trip, not counting some cabin camping in cub scouts. He's going with his best friend from Austin and his family. They drove from Dallas to Santa Fe, New Mexico the first day, then on to the Great Sand Dunes Park, Taos and onward towards Boulder and Denver! Then they're going to put Donny on a plane and send him back to me. We sure miss Donny (Annie's on a food strike until he returns!) but I hope he's having a blast.
Before I move on, let me remind everyone that I'm hosting a giveaway! If you haven't read about it or entered yet, there's still time. I'm closing it Saturday night at midnight. Read the post below this one to find out details:
Ok, with Donny gone, I'm having some major bonding time with my six year old, Remy. I've discovered he's quite a bit more chatty when his older brother is gone...I don't think he's stopped talking AT ALL since Donny left, in fact. This poor child apparently has no one to talk to. And, I get to hear a LOT about these creatures:
If you don't recognize these little guys, then you are really missing you, let me tell you. These are Bakugan. They're from a Cartoon Network show, and they're magnetic. They are little balls, until you throw them on a magnetic surface and then they pop open to become little creatures that battle. Sounds a lot like Pokemon, I know. They fit in little boys' pockets and travel with us everywhere.
Now, hold my hand as we jump from this topic to another totally random, unrelated topic. One, two, three and JUMP!!
Here we are. Cactus. My boys decided they needed to grow cactus. I'm not sure why. Maybe because they've seen me kill too many plants. I've heard these are hard to kill...in fact, you're supposed to ignore them a fair amount. So, we're growing us some cacti on our front step.
Ok, time to jump topics again. Are we all still here? Ooops, we lost Giggle to the dunny. Sorry girlfriend. One, two, three and JUMP!
Tampon cases. Aren't they cute? I got one once from Uncommon Goods because we women just need creative ways to carry tampons. No woman enjoys that time of the month, so we need to find ways to make it more exciting...give it some bling. Here's my contribution. AND, I just bought those Playtex Sport tampons that are supposed to have encouraging sayings on them...I can't wait to try them. hehe
Did I mention one of my new blogger friends is having a giveaway also? Carrie from The Gremlin Wrangler has some hilarious stories working as a cashier, stories from the front line of dealing with crazies like you and me. You know those people who go to the express lane with a million things? Or those drunk floozies checking out at 2pm with bags of shaving cream and toilet paper? You wouldn't believe what she's seen! She has two books out about it, and you've got to check them out. They're hilarious!!
Can you believe these d*mn sticky balls? They have become the bane of my exsistence. What the heck do they make these things out of?
Here's a big jump to a totally random picture. Isn't this Barbie cowgirl adorable? God, I wish I had her shape...and her red hat. I'm thinking about starting a cowgirl hat collection. Do you collect things?
Don't forget, I'm giving away fun stuff!! You don't want to miss out on it...and, we have to show the Bug we bloggers have power, right? We give good comments.
