Well, I took my GED. I am pretty sure that I passed. I'm not quite sure how I couldn't, but we'll see. I still have to take my accuplacer. I have to talk to Financial Aid, since when I filled it all out, I didn't think I wanted to take loans. The recurring car issue has convinced me otherwise :/

Luckily I discovered today that I am eligible for early registration, so I will hopefully be able to take the classes I want to take and not just the ones that have openings. I know there will be some prerequisites, but I think I should at least have one class that will be something I want to take.

I am getting a new tattoo tomorrow. It's my *I acted like a mother fucking adult this week* - see icon - present to myself. I will post pics. This is the one that [livejournal.com profile] sativadivinorum will be proud of. Now if only she was around to see it...

Little human is also attending his first classmate birthday party tomorrow. He should enjoy that. I just need to pick up a gift for her.

Otherwise, all is well-ish. How are my peeps???

Three years ago, at this time,  I was arguing with my mom and Jonathan that I could not "do this". "This" being giving birth. I was attempting to get up and walk out of the hospital while in labor, attached to a monitor, and with an epidural. That would have ended badly.

In exactly two more hours, it will be three years since I finally did give birth.

Happy Birthday Little Human!!!

I feel like crap. I started to feel like crap last night. Little Human has become Satan's Child the last few weeks. Yesterday was horrible. I swore he wouldn't make it through the day. Last night when I went to bed I was way too cold and was achy. I woke up whimpering because it hurt so much. Jonathan was snoring and between that and the pain, I was not pleased. This morning I went back to bed for a few hours.

Jonathan and I have been arguing over the daycare situation. He knows that I am needing more of a break than what I am getting. Especially now that LH is evil. I know I need more too, but am not wanting to spend the money on it. Well, the other day he discovered that he should have been getting a discount on the daycare because of where he works. The director decided to prorate it back to when LH started daycare, so now we have three months of an extra day of daycare at no cost. YAY FOR LITTLE HUMAN BEING IN DAYCARE 3 DAYS A WEEK!!!

Also, we have a ton of moths in out house and I wish our cats weren't so freaking lazy!

The Dude!

I realized that some of my friends aren't on FB and haven't seen any recent pics of Kiddo. Here are a few cut for your pleasure: )

Kiddo is heading to ER. He has had a cough that he hasn't been able to shake since he caught a cold, and I think it has led to an ear infection. I think there may be a sinus infection tossed in there for good measure too.

Om nom nom

I could have eaten that entire pint of B&J Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch...

But I didn't.

In other news we appear to have all caught some flu. I hate to say it is H1N1, but Jonathan and LH both got regular flu vaccines, so unless it's a strain that wasn't covered in this years dose, I think it must be. It isn't as bad a flu as I have had in the past, but it's not fun.

We have been watching movies like crazy. We watched Sweeney Todd last night. I have owned it as part of my Johnny Depp collection since it was released on DVD, but hadn't watched it yet. I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Keep in mind that all I have ever known about it was the basic plot. I have nothing to compare the movie to. Either way, I enjoyed it.

I started to finally watch Coraline, but LH kept turning the DVD player off. I gave up. He appears to enjoy cartoons. He likes Wall-E and says his name over and over. He has Wall-E shoes, and he talks to them a lot. Transformers confuse him and he stands at the tv saying Wall-E. We told him that Wall-E would grow up to be a Transformer, but I don't think he believes us.

Daycare has really done wonders for his vocabulary. He talks a lot more. He hums and sings a lot, too. The other day, I heard him humming Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. He would say "Twinkle" at the right time, but not any of the other words. All birds are duckies and all four legged creatures are still puppies (much to the consternation of the cats). He says something that sounds like "dead cow" but I know that can't be what it is. He says it somewhat randomly, but in earnest. I know it means something to him. Sometimes I look at him and think (not say) "English, Mother Fucker, DO YOU SPEAK IT???" Then I giggle quietly to myself while determining what "dead cow" means.

At least this one was not taking place in the ER or in the Peds Urgent Care. It was just his routine 6 month visit. He got a flu vaccine. I love his Doctor, Dr. Emily MacDonald. She is absolutely incredible and sweet. She does clinic at Carrie Tingley on Fridays and I believe she works UNMH Peds on other days. She and I are able to have good conversations about Little Human's health and well being without me feeling like a bad mom or her being condescending. She wanted me to take him to the Dentist, which hasn't quite happened yet, but she wasn't upset with me. She understood why it hadn't happened yet. We commiserated about husbands...

She is concerned about his weight. He has lost weight since the visit in February but gotten 4 inches taller (2'10" WOOT). I know it is all from the cold and the ear infection. He simply would not eat, and I don't want to make food into an issue. My dad did that with me and now I am fat and unhappy about it. She gave me some ideas on fattening him up, even when he won't eat.

She and I are still a little concerned about his speech, but since starting daycare he has picked up more. His new favorite is "Hey Duuuude". We discussed that it may just be that I coddle him too much and he doesn't need to speak. Just to be sure, I have info on some early intervention places.

They all commented on his huge feet. They are huge. I have to buy him new sneakers. He will be in a size 8 toddlers. Jonathan wears size 13, so I don't know why anyone is surprised. When he grows two more inches he will be half Jonathan's height. I don't think we have much longer to wait for that, and he is only 2 years and 2 months old. I feel like i am carrying around a lead filled octopus most of the time. I love my Lead Filled Octopus (Little Human will stay, just because typing out Lead Filled Octopus everytime will get so old).

I also got a prescription for Miralax! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! You have no idea how his butt issues were concerning me. (Yeah, TMI, Deal with it)

Little Human was so upset when I dropped him off at daycare. It made me upset, so I spent the entire drive home crying. This is the first time I have dropped him off that he was upset about it. I felt like I was abandoning him and he looked at me like I was too. I know I didn't do anything wrong, but when my baby is truly unhappy it makes me feel like shit.

He was having a reaction to the antibiotic so they changed the medication. The new one is every 6 hours, which messes up the daycare, since they can't give it to him without a doctor's note (which Jonathan didn't get). I have to go back at 3:30 to give him the next dose. If he is still upset, I will just bring him home.

Besides, I kinda miss him when he isn't here.

Brownie, right out of the oven, with all natural peanut butter and a little bit of chocolate ice cream on top. It was just what I was wanting, but I wish I done a little more ice cream since there wasn't enough of that warm and cold mix that I was going for.

Part of me wants to post this to [livejournal.com profile] trashy_eats as well as my cheap ass broccoli cheese rice mix in a tortilla.

When my mom and I first moved to NM, money was way short. We would stock up on dry goods like the really cheap boxed broccoli cheese rice and tortillas. I got into this thing that *everything* could go into a tortilla, and that one kind of stuck. The other night Jonathan made cheesey rice and I instantly wanted a tortilla. I waited until he was at work the next day and had my fix then.

In other news, Little Human is having a reaction to the antibiotics. I don't think it's an actual allergy, but he has to go tomorrow to be seen by someone (ER...ugh). I swear, these last three weeks with him have been torturous for both of us.

Little Human started daycare 2 weeks ago. He got sick (as did the rest of us)and so he didn't get to go last week at all. Then he went back on Monday of this week. When I went to pick him up, Miss Carmen (the 2 year teacher) said that he had been fussy all day, and she thought he wasn't feeling well. He hadn't slept well the night before, so I just assumed that was all.

On Tuesday he was really whiny. Little Human is not usually whiny. I noticed his ear was kinda clogged looking. When I get sick my right ear gets clogged something fierce. I used a little warm water and an aspirator to clean it out just like the pediatrician told me to. He just would not stop fussing. I was concerned but had other stuff on my plate and I thought that he was fussing because he had gotten used to being cuddled while he was sick.

Tuesday was also the day mom had the juried panel at the Wooden Cow Art Gallery. She had already gotten confirmation that two pieces were going to be in the October show but she also was trying to get in the consignment side of it too. I wanted to go with her for moral support. I figured that Little Human was just being a grumpbutt.

Jonathan took him to the urgent care at UNMH Tuesday night since he wouldn't calm down. He had an ear infection brought on by the cold from the week before and his eardrum had a perforation. *facepalm* No wonder he was fussy. The perforation had already healed over, which was helped along by my cleaning his ear out (thank goodness, since I was worried I had made it worse). He's on antibiotics. I kept him out of daycare today, since he was still fussy. He goes on Friday though.

Mom got into the gallery. They want her to bring 4-5 pieces on Saturday and they will hang what they have room for. My mom has delusions of inadequacy. She thinks no one likes her art. No one has seen her art for 8 FUCKING YEARS!!! The last show was in a church. She sold 5 or 6 pieces I think (maybe more). The other woman showing with her didn't sell anything. Argh! She makes me mad.

Of course before the panel on Tues there was stress, and something got said that bruised my feelings, but I think in the end, it all worked out. Little Human is fine, mom has an art gallery opening, and my feelings are no worse for wear.

The rest of this week will be spent cleaning out the pantry cabinet (cuz something smells really odd coming out of there...), finishing the kitchen, maybe, and getting the pieces ready for the gallery. Now, it is bedtime.

Today was Little Human's 2nd Birthday. He got some nifty little toys. He got a pirate ship, a little garage with a car, a xylophone, and a child sized broom and dustpan (he loves to wander around with the adult versions, and he seemed to like them). Odd child...

I also made some rainbow colored cupcakes with buttercream frosting. These were tasty. He didn't seem all that excited about them, but did eat the frosting. I will be posting pictures of the yummy cupcakes.

Other than that, we didn't do much. We went to Jericho Nursery and bought oodles of plants. I highly recommend them. The staff is almost all from Rowland's. They were helpful and just plain nice people.

I believe it is time for bed now.

Oh, does anyone know where I can locally find the rubber gaskets for wire sealing jars and canisters (Like these)? I have a bunch of them that I want to use for storing dry goods, but the seals need to be replaced! I have found and will order them online if I have to, but I would like to find try to find them locally first.

I am absolutely ridiculous and just bought a lovely wedding dress off of ebay for $50.00. I also ordered samples of wedding invitations. I have no idea why, since I am still shooting for 2/29/12. I am being odd this week, and I am not sure why...

In other news, we are having to duct tape Little Human's diapers on (not to his skin, but around where the velcro goes), since he takes them off ALL THE TIME!!! He has also learned how to climb out of his play pen so we are getting him a larger, taller play yard. I have cute pics of him at the aquarium, which I will put up. he is adorable, but Satan Incarnate all the same.

I want to do work to the new house right now, but I know we can't. I am just so excited about it. I am having a hard time getting my ass in gear to pack, though.


EDIT to add pics of the dress... )

Hair is turning blue as we speak. I know, dying hair on the day of an occasion is a stupid idea, but I wanted blue hair. I will deal if it isn't right =)

Thank you so much [livejournal.com profile] eclypsia and [livejournal.com profile] valuedemployee for watching the Little Human for us tonight. You have no idea how much we appreciate it!

I also have not posted about my Mommy's Day prezzie. Jonathan got me an absolutely beautiful ring. I don't think it was made as such, but I wear it as an engagement ring because it is big and sparkly. When pics go up of hair, I will put up a ring pic too.

Okay, must give Little Human a bath (I refuse to let people take care of him when he is this dirty:How does he get so filthy so fast???) and figure out what to wear...

Well, I just bought the NINJA tickets, now to find someone to watch the Little Human while we go! Mom just can't handle him for extended periods of time. He is a hellion. Does anyone have any ideas? I know the lovely [livejournal.com profile] julian_wolf has offered up some services, but I feel bad because it will be long and he is a serious pain in the ass for us (especially diaper changes). I don't know how a teen could handle him! But it is a thought. If anyone else has any ideas...

Oh dear...

Happy will be very difficult to come by today. Being covered in Baby vomit kinda does that. This morning when Darby got up, he started throwing up and he hasn't stopped since. Jonathan took him to urgent care, which originally told him that it would be at least 2 hours before they could get him into a room, but as soon as he told them he was vomiting, he got a room.
They seem to think that something he ate just didn't agree with him, since he isn't feverish at all. I am thinking it is the pickle I gave him (oops), but who knows at this point.

My happy for today I think will still have to be Robin. I was training her again at work today, and she is just nifty. We are both very obnoxious, and have the same sense of humor. So, while I already made her one of my happies, I think she will have to be again, since being covered in Baby slime is NOT a happy...

Also: Craig Ferguson is the shit! It is such a pity that I can't stay up this late more often.
Having Dubs sit in my lap and listen to music with the headphones on low and watching the iTunes visualizer. He sat with me for about an hour, and generally at this stage, I am lucky if I can get him to sit still for 5 mins.

On his soundtrack today was:
Rammstein-Du Hast (he loves this song)
Spiderbait-Black Betty
JT- Sexy Back
Kenny Wayne Shepherd-Blue on Black
Flogging Molly-Seven Deadly Sins
Finger Eleven-One Thing
The Clash-Should I Stay or Should I Go

I tease on a weekly basis, that if he is not a good boy, I will put him out for the "Baby Pick-up People" on Wednesday. This is just wrong, though...

Little Human was holding his bowl over his nether regions like a very strange looking cod piece. I thought it was funny.

I am also amused by my posting yesterday that I wasn't sure I should keep making repairs on the car, but then spent most of the day after I got it back, looking at new stereos for it. The cassette deck finally bit the dust yesterday, which means my mp3 player is useless in the car (FM transmitters are shit). I found the stereo I want...

Punkin had to go to the UNM Urgent Care. He had a fever this morning and I gave him some acetaminophen, but when he woke up from his afternoon nap, the fever was back and getting higher. Jonathan took him. They cleaned out his ears and his doc (his regular doc, which we have an appt with on Fri), thought it was an ear infection. the ear specialist however told her that he did not. So we got a scrip for ibuprofen, and were told that if the fever does not let up by tomorrow evening, we are to bring him back. I just feel awful. I should have taken him this morning, but I thought it was maybe just teething issues. I just want to cry.
