Look mama!

My son just brought me a booger.  "Have my booger mama!"  "oh, thank you.  Here, let's put it in some tissue and throw it away."  (screaming) "No!  I'm gonna hide it!"

There's a booger somewhere in my house.  Whoever finds it wins a prize.

Fun stuff

I've felt so whiny lately, I need to blog about some cool things that have happened recently....

First, my older brother taught the boy to pull a "sword" (stick, vacuum attachment) from the couch and say "I have the power!" Awesome! Seriously, 2 is my favorite age. He's also getting really good at holding his breath under water. This kid is a fish!

2 nights ago we went to my uncle's for "Fire & Ice". A night of fireworks and icecream with a lot of families from the neighborhood. It was awesome. They had well over 100 fireworks which were lit in groups of 5 with a blowtorch. You know you're at a good party when a blow torch is involved, right? The ice cream was great and the mosquito bites were minimal. We definitely plan to make this an annual event.

Also, one of my best friends is pregnant and it's awesome for them!

The best news was the weather for the past 2 days. Rainy, cloudy, and gorgeous! I despise sunny days. If I wasn't so terrified of the ring of fire, Seattle would be my home. Stupid geology. Even though I know it has to come to an end, I've been so grateful to be below 100 the past few days.

I love my drugs

Normally I'm very holistic, try the natural approach kind of gal. But lately, the natural approach hasn't worked for me and it's starting to endanger my health apparently. So now I get drugs. Wonderful, blessed drugs. Sure, there's side effects, like sleeping 24 hours/day and horribly dry eyes, but if it means I don't have to vomit blood, I'm okay with that. It's like when I was in labor and vomiting bile and convulsing and everyone was like, "dude, just get the epidural" and I was like, "no, I want to do this natural!" and eventually I got the epidural because, well natural just plain sucked, and then it went from horrendous experience to awesomest experience of my life. You know, natural is still good and has it's place, but sometimes you just suck it up and take the drugs so you stop hating life.
