to exclude “negative” influences in my life (both in real life and online…i.e.facebook)

If I want to be stabbed in the back, I will mount a knife to a door and back into it myself.  I certainly don’t need so-called “friends” lining up to do it.

So I have “blocked” negative influences and I feel better about it.  Several of them know about my blog and if they decide that it is still any of their business to read this, that is on them.  If they are that desperate for rumor fodder….I will just pray for them.  I live in a small town and there is no real practical way to escape from all the small town “bitty hens”.

Sorry, I did not intend for this post to come across as being so negative…..

I must be in one of my moods……

and I don’t really care what the furry little rodent sees.  My life is pretty much like Bill Murray‘s is in the movie Groundhog Day. I wake up the same, I go to bed the same.  Somewhere in the middle is a series of mild disasters, a few tears (mine and the Twinkies), some growling (me and the dogs), some food (mostly for the Twinkies) and there we are.

Although I live in Pennsylvania, I live about as far away from Punxsutawney as you can get and still be in the Keystone State.  They are a different breed up there….(and that is all I am going to say about that)  And, while I am on the subject,  I don’t even want to know hoe “Gobbler’s Knob” got it name.  Really….talk about TMI (too much information).  I have nothing against groundhogs in general.  I love animals.  I think PETA suggesting that they use and animatronics version of Phil is a bit much…ok…it is down right stupid.  The people up there worship “Phil The Groundhog”.  He lives better than I did when I was in college!!!

My day yesterday was wonderful.  I am not going into much detail about that, but it was just what the doctor ordered.  And besides that, I actually sorted and folded socks, and hung up laundry.  Yeah, I was in a pretty darn good mood to do that and then ADMIT it on my blog.

Daniel was a little fussy in the night.  He keeps putting his hands over his ears and screaming.  I am not sure if it is because he is getting the 2 year molars, he has the start of an ear infection, or even he thinks that his screaming and squealing is too loud (the boy can blow out an eardrum!).  Having never had 2 year old before…. I am asking all those mommies out there who have walked down this path to shed some insight…..

Despite the hubby being in a crappy mood and Daniel being cranky with the whole teething thing and both kids being down with a stomach flu this week, for some “strange” reason, I am in a really, really good mood today.  I mean the kind of mood where you walk around with a smirk on your face and a “Kiss My Butt” swagger.  Yeah, that is exactly where I am right now.  Smirking……imagine that!  Ask yourself….when was the last time you smirked?  Or swaggered around?  Well, ladies, it has been far too long for me.  I should have entitled this post “How Kari Got Her Groove Back” but that might give too much away…..and that is all I am going to say about that….and no, it is not caffeine induced…I have moved on to the Folgers 1/2 caff coffee…..

I had a nice visit at mom and dad’s last night for chicken casserole, and then was back over early this afternoon and pigged out on McDonalds.  So much for the diet.  I have been really good since I put on the 10 lbs over Thanksgiving and Christmas.   Food is huge for my family during the holidays…and how can you say no?  But I am back on track….no more cheating…..back to my egg white and tomato omelette in the morning…..yup….swearing off the carbs….. (let’s see how long this lasts!!!! LOL).

Perigee Full Moon

So, Melissa came down with  some kind of gastrointestinal virus (i.e. the stomach bug) last night.  Poor thing was a fountain for about 4 hours and ended up with the dry heaves.  So, my mother has been sick, Daniel has been sick, and now Melissa is sick (well recovering) but is still running a slight fever.  It seems everyone around us has the same bug.  So, what happenes if I get sick?  Who is gonna take care of me?  I am the world’s worst patient.

And in case you hadn’t heard, tonight is a Perigee moon….that means it will be bigger (about 14%) and fuller than any other time in 2010.  I hope I can stay awake long enough to see it.  I have always been a fan of full moons….and no, I don’t often consider myself a lunatic….some others might…..

So, I knew last night that I wasn’t going to get much sleep.  The hubby had to get up and be at work extra early this morning since that cable news network is going to be at his plant filming today.  He never sleeps before a big to do at work.  So, I was listening for his alarm so he didn’t oversleep.  He left for work beofre 4 am.  Daniel was up a few times in the night again.   Still no sleep around here.  Then, Daniel was up at 5 and was soaked.  In the process of changing him, Melissa woke up, so we are all up now.

Had a good trip to the dentist.  They had originally thought that I had a cavity….(say it ain’t so) which I haven’t had since I was in 10th grade.  As it turns out….it was just a small perforation in the enamel and they were able to seal three of my molars with sealent.  I am just so glad I didn’t have to get numbed up.  I hate that.  And pretty much any time I see a needle, I think FERTILITY DRUGS….I don’t need to go back to those days.

Melissa has started to pull herself up in to a full stand.  Daniel, not so much.  I am sure it has something to do with the fact that Daniel is a little chunk monster.  Melissa is a climber.  The world is her jungle gym.  She is so inquisitive about everything….Daniel just goes with the flow.

We have a guy coming out tonight to give us an estimate on replacing our fifty year old furnace this afternoon.  This should be interestesting.  I have to move about a ton of clean clothes that I have been begging the hubby to bring upstairs…yuck.  I don’t mind laundry, but dragging the baskets up two flights of stairs sucks.

And my Phillies, sweet Phillies have to play the Dodgers.  The game doesn’t start until 8 pm Thursday night.  That means I will (most likely) be at work late.  I told the hubby about it and hopefully it won’t be an issue this week…..

We have also been talking about the possibility of me going back to school.  Once my parents have gotten settled, it wouldn’t be too hard for me to go back at night.  I did some checking and as it turns out…I will pretty much have to start from scratch!!!  Oh joy…just what I want- to sit in a class full of 18 year olds.

And, to top things off…it is 45 degrees out right now.  I am not ready for the summer to be over, let alone think about frost.
