How many times can I say a version of the word recycle in one entry? A lot, apparently. Obviously I’ve had a non-eventful Labor Day weekend. As I wanted it to be, as I wanted it to be. On Friday night I had a temper tantrum when I perceived Matthew to be pressuring me to go out to dinner. That asshole is always trying to take me out on a date… Kidding, he is so sweet. I simply...
Occurring an hour after burning my eye with the...
Matt: How is your eye now?
Me: It still burns a little, more like tingles now. But not a good tingles.
Matt: I'm sorry you hurt your eye.
Me: Thank you for helping me.
Matt: You're welcome. I love you, baby.
Me: I can't believe some of the assholes I dated before you. I would seriously be apologizing for burning my eye and causing them a 5 minute delay in their day as they struggled to be nice about it. Why did I date people like that?
Matt: You just didn't date Jews. None of them were Jewish guys.
Me: Oh. Is that a Jewish stereotype? You are all...what? I don't get it.
Matt: It's just that our sisters, mothers, grandmothers and all other female relatives require a TREMENDOUS amount of attention. We're bred to be attentive.
Me: Nice! I like it.

This shit is bananas! cvxn: karion: He wanted Lieberman, badly. The advisers shot it down. Watch for Palin to stoically step down, saying she has to protect her family from the vicious lies and horrible accusations coming from the left wing (all of which were circulating for months in Alaksa). Lieberman gets the nod after the convention (where the advisers said there would be a revolt in...

Heading to yoga in about 10 minutes. It will feel so good to end the week like that. I have been BUSY, and have not had time to work out except for Monday’s yoga. I feel gross and need a good sweat. Ooooooooooom. We are staying in tonight, walking the dogs to Whole Foods and probably grilling. Maybe some chilled white wine. I have already broken my no drinking on the weeknights rule...
Today was ok - they didn't kill eachother
Matt and I took the doggies for a morning walk today. Usually Matt just would take Coco so I could get ready and get out the door for work. But poor Harry can’t keep up with Coco so it is really awkward to walk them both yourself. Matt and I both came home at lunch to walk them again, and they were doing fine. They both came up on the couch and cuddled after the mid-day walk, which is...
Fancy grown up dinners
We registered for china, crystal, and silver this weekend at Copper Lamp, a specialty store. It was overwhelming (choices), then fun, then overwhelming (prices). We expect to purchase a lot of this ourselves over time. Someday we will have a beautiful table!
Yoga, yoga, yoga
I love yoga. Tonight the teacher read the best quote from a meditation book. I can’t remember it all, but the jist of it was: -Don’t squelch your feelings, what you hate and what you love makes up who you are. -It is ok to hate things and to love things - this is passion. -Passion is what lights the fire within you, therefore it is a gift from above. -Allow yourself to feel...

I have oily skin, as demonstrated in the photo below. In 7th grade, prime puberty phase, I used to put the skin colored tinted Clearasil on my t-zone like foundation or something to block the oil. I would also go to the girls’ room to blot my face with paper towels. My mom bought me blotting papers that smelled like roses, I remember that vividly. Loved those things. Why didn’t...

Holy shit. This is such a crazy story. I can’t believe that human beings like this girl’s birth mother exist. Gross. My child welfare social working mother will flip when she reads this. Poor, poor little girl. BUT, she does have a happy ending. Read it and weep. Seriously.
Friday is almost upon us. We were supposed to have Matt’s dear friends from college, Jeff and Robin, come into town from Austin for the weekend. However, we have had no air conditioning on the bottom 2 floors of the townhome for maybe 3 weeks. Matt signed up for a new warranty for the airconditioning and it doesn’t kick in until Saturday August 9th. That is this Saturday, thank...
