Quick someone toss me a line.

It's getting deep over here.

The amount of BS my teen keeps dishing out I'm up to neck in it. We are past wading boots.

"Hey, what's that on your lip"
"A pimple" she says
"a pimple"
"yeah a pimple" as the piece of metal clacks against her teeth and shimmers in the light.

"really that's a pimple."
"uh-huh" still blinding me with her metal projectile resting against her teeth.

"HEY-(spouse's name)Come check out (daughter's name)'s Pimple."
Eye's rolling to the back of her head.

DH walks in looking mildly annoyed, as usual. "HUH?!?!?" he says.
"Show him your pimple"
She stands there with lips tightly pressed together.

We must have "JACKASSES" written on our foreheads.

"OPEN your mouth" I say. *sparkle sparkle shing*

I walk away.

"When did you do that?" I hear him say. "What did you do that with"
"a safety pin a few days ago. I was bored." meekly responding (PLEASE)

"Take that crap out."
"That is stupidest thing you could ever do. We've talked about this before. You hit a nerve and you can damage your lip FOREVER."

I feel like the biggest asshole, since I just went out and did something nice for her. She's been wanting to make cupcakes so I went out and bought her what she needed. WHY, should I. When I don't even get the decency of a truthful answer. NO MATTER HOW stupid it is. At least give me the courtesy.

I tell ya I'm at a total flippin' loss.

And then we walk around sulking because she "SAYS" she gets treated unfairly.....UMMM. Well if you didn't freakin' lie about everything under the sun we wouldn't have these freakin' problems.

What are we Rainbow Bright with sparkley pimples? Does gold come out of your ear? (Trying really hard to keep it tactful but you know what I wanted to say.)

For now,

Drowning in BS

My blog is still broken, but I don't have the time to fix it right now.
I'm still a little mad at it. :P

As some of you know I've been having some stomach problems. Very scarry problems, lots of pain. At one point the pain was so severe that it would wake me up at night so I wasn't getting much sleep. As a mom of a 15 yr old, 8 yr old, and 11month old, that isn't really cool. I'm also a student and my grades are starting to reflect the lack of concentration and sleep. So I've had my gallbladder removed. That solved one problem but the pain continued. Went a while without going to the doctor because I thought(hoped) it would pass on its own. Instead I ended up as I stated sleep, not happy, kind of wacky. So I had an endoscopy done. That was a month ago and today I finally got the results from that.

I got good news. NO signs of cancer, no H.pylori (bacteria that causes ulcers). I have Gastritis and signs of acid reflux. I got to see some fotos of my insides and basically they looked good but red. I'm just raw inside. LOTS of acid. I have been on a double dose of Nexium since the endoscopy and told them that I still have the pain. I explained that my stress levels are super high and gave a few examples. She agreed that it could all very well be stress related and that we should give the medicine some more time but she wanted to order a CAT Scan. To make sure sure that nothing else was happening since I STILL have pain. (did I already say that?)
So I had some blood work done and picked up my barium cocktails for my CT appointment. I'm bummed that this isn't over.
But in a way I am thankful that I have the opportunity to be able to get the medical treatment I need. I am blessed.

off to study!! wish me luck and send some smart vibes my way. I'm not feeling very smart right now. All this XML XSD xphlfffphlff is really freaking me out.

ciao tutti!!

Happy 2008!!

I hope that everyone had a beautiful 2008 celebration.

So this year for me will start with yet another musical post.
The quick version so I don't bore you. Ever get a little tune in your head that doesn't go away? Then you think, hmmmm I wonder if Youtube has a video for it.

Well at first it started with Simply Red's Stars song.. LOVE IT.

But then I went way back to "It's Only a Paper Moon." written in 1933 by Harold Arlen, and the lyrics by E. Y. Harburg and Billy Rose.

In 1938 the lovely Ella Fitzgerald recorded it and as some of you may know many other artists have rerecorded this great piece.

I didn't find her version but I found many others. Then I found this one that said Isto - Paper Moon. The dude is sitting on the floor playing the guitar with a funnel on his head. I was intrigued. So reluctantly but curious all at the same time clicked the link. It was a "great" version but it wasn't bad. He had a pretty cool voice. I must see more I thought. He has lots to choose from. I liked this one so I will post. Someone made a comment on his videos. "The more I listen to them the more I like." I like.
