Tuesday Tidbits

Jacob's birthday is less than a week away. How in the world did that sneak up? I cannot believe he will be six already. My ears are still ringing from the colic during that first year. We are having a party at the park. Please keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't rain.

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday morning, but I never did see the doctor. This is the third time this has happened this pregnancy. I waited over an hour and a half and finally had to leave because it was time to fetch Jacob from school. I realize emergencies arise and could hear through the thin walls that the doctor was arranging hospital stays and MRIs and all kinds of scary stuff for some poor lady, so I really wasn't mad about it. I did get quite peeved, though, when I went to leave and found four drug reps monopolizing the PA and nurse's time. Can't that be done another time? Like after the office closes? When I went to the dermaguy in December, one actually followed the nurse into the exam room with us so she could finish telling her about her upcoming wedding...HELLO....I am paying for this!

Another peeve......why do the grocery baggers insist upon bagging my groceries and then placing them in another cart? Can they not see that I have my child strapped into a different one? Quit rolling your eyes at me and trying to push me out of the way as I move my twelve heavy bags into my cart....something you should have done in the first place.

Also, I think I finally quit my favorite grocery store yesterday. The cart thing was just a part of it. The past few weeks I have been in there much of the food was expired. Yesterday I found a carton of heavy cream that had expired in October. Milk that expired a few days ago and yogurt from December. A few days, maybe, months, totally not acceptable. I have brought it to the attention of the staff and they just look at me like I am crazy. The employees have also gotten ruder and the store dirtier and it's just gone way down hill the past year. I think I will be sticking with the cool, hip, new store, even if they don't double coupons. Sayonara, Kroger!

Seems like I missed a nice wedding. We never thought best friend would get married, he was like Seinfeld in that nit picky kind of way with women. He had nine cats (had, only his true love could've gotten him to part with them, I guess). We snickered a lot. Apparently, not only did he dive right into with a care in the world, he even wrote his own meaningful vows and showered his bride with gifts and love all throughout the day. Wow. My husband to be sent a Wendy's cheeseburger and a beer for me. Miracles can happen I guess. The husband gets a little reprieve in the anger department because he left the wedding at 2 am, slept until 4 am, then drove the five hours home so he could be home all day with the kids. I was shocked. He didn't bring a gift, but he brought a huge hunk of almond white wedding cake that was absolutely divine, so I won't gripe.....for now.

And the duvet......LOVE the duvet. It was a steal at that price and it came with pillow shams to boot. I am even keeping the dog off of it, I like it that much. The cute kid is pretty neat, too.

Your duvet is too gorgeous! I love it.
Let me explain about the after hours drug rep thing. My neighbor is a drug rep. She leaves her house at 10 am and is home by 3 pm. She makes big bucks and does NOTHING (sorry if I'm offending any drug reps., but this is my opinion). They aren't going to work after hours, they don't have to. And they certainly don't care if they infringe on our time. They get paid to hand out samples and make small talk. Must be nice.
