RTT: You like the towel animals!!


Hello everyone! Happy second (or is it 3rd?) day of spring!

*Did you know spring is not supposed to be capitalized? I didn't until Indy and I learned about it in his grammar book a few weeks ago. Months and days, yes, please capitalize. Seasons, nope. Wonder why?

*You guys really liked my pointless post with towel animals yesterday. It got loads of hits. Who'd have thunk? If you didn't see it, click here.  You know you want to see some towel animals!

*I hate spring (capitalized or not).  Indy and I have been sniffling and sneezing for days.  It's awful.  I can't even take the good meds because of Han Solo.  We're in for a long few weeks I'm afraid.  Sadly, my poor Indy seems to have it almost as bad as I do, but he's not old enough for the good meds.  I'm hoping James Bond's genes will make it to Han Solo, but I don't think it's going to happen.

*Speaking of James Bond, yesterday was his Army anniversary.  He's been in for 15 years.  Only 5 to go before he can retire!  WHAT?  It's true. Of course he'll probably want to stay for 25 or 30 years, so then it would be 10 or even 15 to go. Sigh.

*I so wish I could go see the Broadway version of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

*Han Solo has been giving me issues all weekend.  Contractions strong enough to wake me up at night (and make me miserable during the day), but not consistent enough to be progressive labor.  Ugh.  If he's not born by tomorrow night, he needs to knock it off until at least Monday of next week. Why?  Because my birthday is Sunday and I do NOT want to be in the hospital on my birthday!  I was actually in the hospital for bronchitis and sinusitis for my 33rd birthday (IIRC-I know it was the week Pope John Paul died) and it was the WORST birthday ever.  I do not want to be in the hospital or worse, labor on my birthday!

*So, I finally got my Google Analytic to work.  I get a lot more hits than I thought.  Yesterday's towel animal post got over 300 hits.  Yeah, I know, compared to some super star bloggers, that's small potatoes, but for me that's exciting.   It only got like 5 or 6 comments and 3 private emails though.  I want to know who you are!  Say hi!  Leave me a comment.  Tell me how awesome I am.  I love to check out new blogs and if you leave me a comment, I will come visit you in return.

*I just want to sleep all. the. time.  On Sunday, I didn't get up until almost 11am (I went to bed at 10:30pm the night before), and then napped from 4-6pm and was back in bed by 10pm.  If I didn't HAVE to get up in the mornings, I wouldn't.  Maybe I'm prepping for all the sleep I'm going to lose to late night feedings?

*What the frick goes on in Texas?????  Come have a ball?  Seriously?

I always forget whether seasons get capitalized or not. Now I know for sure!

Stacy Uncorked said...

I alternate capitalizing the seasons - I'm sure Princess Nagger will correct me if she catches me doing it. ;)

15 years in the military is awesome! Congrats to your hubby!

Maybe all the sleep you're getting now will be a sign that Han Solo will be a good sleeper for can dream, right? ;)

I hope you have an awesome birthday and that it doesn't turn out to be a bad repeat of your 33rd. :)

That Testicle Festival cracked me up! I'm still snickering... ;)

Wii Bowling and Champagne Making - RTT

I had to read that announcement twice--I really stumbled over the testicle and Jesus in the same title. Crazy. Hope Han Solo makes his appearance--but not on your birthday.

Raven said...

You ARE awesome!

Testicle Festival? WTF is that about? Do they have a Vagina Festival too?

Hope you're not in labor on your birthday!!

Happy Tuesday!!

DD said...

Oh no, the testicle festival? I think that's one that I would skip. I just can't think of any reason I would want to attend.

Thanks for the information about the capitalization of seasons. I've been doing it wrong for years, but now I wan tto know why.

Krista said...

Have a ball with Jesus, nonetheless. That just seems wrong. I hope for your sake that Han Solo arrives soon too. It sounds as though you are having a rough time right now! And Happy Early Birthday!

I'm still boggling at the Texas Testicle with Christ bit!

Happy RTT!

I hastily left a comment about me going to Indy then I realized you meant a person and you live in Texas. I need to NOT drink an entire pot of coffee in one sitting. Seriously. The allergies are killing my family and the meds are so expensive!

Andrea said...

Testicles for Jesus, oh my, that's a new one. Good thing I'm not religious!

Oh yes, isn't it fun to be sick/in labor/or otherwise not in a fun mood on your birthday or special holiday? Yep, always happens to me too.

Happy RTT!

Keely said...

Not just a ball, but a ball with JESUS. That sounds

tarichuck said...

Missed the towel animals yesterday, but leaving a "Hi" for you since I rarely comment. Also, Happy Anniv to James Bond. (I think we hit 13 years this summer. I am also counting down.)

I am with you on the allergies, although I just got the ok from the OB to restart "the good stuff" so hopefully I will not suffer as much. Hope you aren't too miserable with the sneezing and such.

Michele said...

It seems that you can have a ball with Jesus for free...did you have to pay for it in the past?

Here's hoping the Hans Solo gets here before or after your birthday but not ON your birthday.
