The Sever Snippets Friday blog hop is sponsored by my cyber bubby Andi at Bringing The Sunshine.
1.) Toddler bear has another ear infection. She is getting her 3rd set of ear tubes today. Goody. You can see that she doesn't feel well.
2.) The Descendants has been nominated for multiple Oscars and it greatly saddens me that a movie that has:
Matt King ( Clooney): You are so retarded
Sid (Nick Krause): That's not nice. I have a retarded brother
Sid : I'm just kidding. I don't have a retarded brother. Sometimes when old people and retarded people are slow, I just want to make them hurry up.
as its dialogue is regarded so highly. Yes, I know that the book does indeed have those very words in them, but come on! you would think Hollywood would be smarter than that to put those offensive, ignorant words in their movie. Still, apparently the public must not care as this movie is receiving a great honor in the just nominations alone. Am I the only one saddened by this?
3.) At the pediatrician's office this week, one of the ladies in the waiting room asked me if I was expecting. You know. As in pregnant. No, I am not pregnant. I am just overweight. I had a baby 2 years ago and I am still carrying a spare tire around my waist. Working out and eating somewhat (kind of sort of) right just don't cut it. Perhaps I need to push myself more. Still, what kind of person thinks it is okay to ask unassuming women if they are pregnant?
Actually, I look sort of like a chicken-skinny arms and legs, thick middle.
4.) Since we are on the subject of weight, the Ellie Bellie Bear is having the opposite problem. She lost some weight. We were referred to a dietitian who after reviewing Ellie's food diary declared that she is getting 133% of her calories met. We went back to the pedi a week later for the above-mentioned ear infection and it looks like she gained 2 pounds in 1 week. Me thinks their scale is inaccurate. Me thinks The Bear moves too much on the scale. I am assuming that Ellie has neither gained nor lost weight and I am not worried.
5.) We have a significant mold problem in the bathtub/tile of the master bath. So significant that I have forbidden Andrew from showing in that cesspit of a bathroom. I go into the bathroom yesterday to clean only to discover not only large dust bunnies in the bathtub, but also magazines. That's right, my husband has turned our tub into a huge magazine rack. I told him that is so white trash. His response. . . "nope, we are off-white trash."
6.) Andrew, Ellie, and I are traveling to Long Beach, CA soon to visit Andrew's father. I have only met him once and that was before we were engaged. I am nervous. What if after this visit he thinks "I cannot believe my son married this woman!"? I am also nervous about taking Toddler Bear on the plane. Ellie-Miss-Screams-A-Lot on Jet Blue.
7.) We have a birthday party to go to tomorrow. I love that Ellie has been invited to birthday parties over the past year. I love that she is included in these celebrations with her little friends.
