What's your favorite season?

I love summer, but I'm definately ready for fall. Growing up in phoenix, I never really experienced fall. It was more like summer and then winter. No in betweens.

I love warm days and cool nights. I love the colors of the changing leaves. I love the smell of the crisp evening air. I love to wear jeans and a cardigan.

What about you? What is your favorite season?

I fucking hate backhanded comments. I just got one, which I promptly deleted, but it still pissed me off.

What's with people lately? If you don't like someone, why read and post on their blog? If you do post, just say what you want to say instead of pretending to he nice but actually saying something shitty? I'd rather get a straightforward comment then a backhanded one. I'd have to say I hate passive aggressiveness as one of the worst things out there.

Its all over

My tooth is gone. And Yay for IV sedation to get through an oral surgery without feeling a thing. I'm quite sore now, but its not too bad. I can handle this.

The hole I feel in the back of my mouth is strange but you can't really see it when I open my mouth to laugh. And you can't see it at all when I smile. That's a relief. I don't have to feel embarrassed. I don't know when I will be able to afford a replacement tooth so for now, I will just leave that space empty.

Thanks for all the good luck wishes. They seemed to have helped!

Wish me luck.

I have my oral surgery tomorrow morning at 9:30. It should be a piece of cake because I'm getting IV sedation. The recovery will be the worst of it.

I'm going to miss my tooth. We've been through a lot together!

What a strange comment.

I just received a comment on a post that was months and months ago. It was a picture post which one of the pictures showed karl's little naked butt.

The comment was "rude or not, why would you put a picture of your baby's naked butt on the internet. No one wants to see that. And why would you embarrass your own child?"

I didn't know it was possible to be offended by a baby's butt. Apparently, someone was. How crazy is that? Of course the commentor was anonymous. I fnd it humorous that people feel free to be bitchy when hiding behind the anonymous capability.

I'm pretty opinionated and outspoken. (gasp!) But ve never hid behind an anonymous comment. I think anyone who does so is a pussy. If you've got something to say, say it behind your own name. If you don't feel comfortable enough to use your name, you probably shouldn't be leaving a comment at all.

Now I want to post tons of naked baby butt pictures!

What about you? Do you get rude and hateful comments from people who are too chicken shit to leave their names?

All my jeans were in the washer and I needed a pair to wear. So I pulled off the top pair and they just looked too small, but I tried them on anyway.

They fit! Size six baby. I'm more than surprised but very happy with myself. I've been dancing around the house and checking out myself in the mirror. I'm such a dork. But I'm a skinny dork!

Sorry to be tooting my own horn here, but I'm just plain excited about it. I have eight more pounds to lose before I'm done with my dieting. I hope I can get there before my 20th class reunion. Who doesn't want a rockin body to show off?

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

For me, I'd have a house on the beach. Maybe one of the Hawaiian islands.

Home births

Robin mentioned home birthing in her comment to my last post. It is one of those things I also feel strongly about.

I get why people want homebirths but it is another one of those things that are risky. Sure, most of the time they go off without a hitch but why would people risk something happenening? If I had Karl at home, I would have died. No ifs ands or buts. I would have bled to death and I would have left three children without a mother.

What do you think of home births?

Co sleeping dangers.

I just read in the news of a baby dying due to cosleeping with his mother. The parents said they've always coslept and thought they were safe because they were such light sleepers and very aware of their child in bed with them. But tragedy struck them when the baby was accidentally suffocated.

How horrible. This poor family. They are going to have to live with the fact they killed their child for the rest of their lives.

Cribs are the best place for sleeping babies. Its beyond me why parents risk it just because its easier for them to breastfeed. I can't imagine the guilt this family will feel forever. It can happen in the blink of an eye. I seriously don't understand why anyone would cosleep.

Monday, bloody Monday.

First off, thank you all for the birthday wishes! A lot of you commented here and I got bunches of Facebook happy birthday wishes. My birthday was great because of all of you. So thank you. From the bottom of my heart.

I went to the dentist this morning and got some bad news. My bad tooth is now infecting the bone. Which means I need to get it pulled. Lame. Its my very back bottom molar so I'm going to have to get some sort of replacement. I'm scheduled to get it out next thursday. Fun times.

Happy birthday to me.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be a big 38 years old. How I'm inching closer to 40 astounds me.

My husband and I just went to a wedding. It was a full catholic mass. In Spanish. I'll leave it at that.

Weight loss

There's one good thing about being really depressed. Weight loss! Yay?

I was 148 a few months ago and now I'm 138.5. Woot.
I'll probably gain it all back when I'm through with this, but for now, i'll take it!
