Sunday Evening Thoughts

My new lullaby for Kaelyn. To the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (obviously).


Twinkle, twinkle you’re my star
And I love you just the way you are

With your big, bright eyes of blue
I could kiss all over you

Twinkle, twinkle you’re my star
And I love you just the way you are

====================================
Today at Ultimate we were sitting on a blanket under a big shade tree with our shoes off to the side. A few minutes after we arrived I realized that a bird had pooped right on my flip-flop. I told Matt, “Uh-oh, I hope we aren’t in a poop zone.” He had no idea what I was talking about. But sure enough about an hour later another bird pooped on our frisbee right where my shoe had been sitting before. (You thought I was going to say it pooped on my head, didn’t you?) ๐Ÿ™‚

====================================
I haven’t met a person yet who doesn’t enjoy playing this game. It’s one of my most favorites. It says the recommended age to play is 8, but I think we’ll have Kaelyn playing much earlier than that.

====================================
Kaelyn has discovered how to cross her fingers…you know like when you were little and you told a fib and you thought if you crisscrossed your fingers then it meant it was okay. I wonder if kids still use that same trick these days?

====================================
I have infectious lips. Hmm, wonder how many weird google hits that will bring to our website?

So I had what I thought were really bad chapped lips for over a month. Cracked, bleeding, horrible lips. It looked like a seriously botched botox job. I was using (no exaggeration) about 3, yes, 3, tubes of chapstick a week to not be miserable.

I felt really silly calling the doctor for chapped lips, but I had finally had enough. I went to the doctor on Friday and he said I probably had a lip infection. Not really sure what caused it in the first place, but could have been a sunburn or mild allergic reaction that got infected. The doctor gave me steroids and instructed me to use that and aquaphor. Seriously by the very next day my lips felt a million times better!!

The worst part is I am not supposed to use any kind of lipstick/gloss for about the next month. I don’t think I’ve ever gone two days with out lipstick or glass, but it’s totally worth it to have my lips back. Hooray for (legal) steroids!

====================================
That’s all for tonight. I’m signing off to watch The Business of Being Born documentary. We are now official Netflix subscribers.

  1. Update: The documentary was interesting. Matt didn’t watch because he doesn’t like seeing all the bloody/hospital type stuff. I could see their point, but it still didn’t convince me to ever try a home birth. Based on my birth experience, I have a lot of questions that they didn’t answer in the movie that would have to be addressed. For example, who would clean my house after all that? Ha!

  2. I want to see that documentary too, but I will for sure stick with hospitals. We’re going to swtich to Netflix in the fall b/c they have a new deal they’re working with X Box 360 live so you can download movies right at home for the Netflix price. Sweet! We watched Drillbit Taylor last night. I think A thought it was funny…I thought it was pretty silly! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Yea, I actually watched the movie from the internet. We hooked the computer to the TV and downloaded it right from Netflix instantly. It was great…you couldn’t tell that it wasn’t a DVD playing.

  4. Didn’t you say that you had a better performance in ultimate after the (legal) steroid use? It could be that you’ve stumbled across a way to legimately use performance-enhancing drugs.
