Lastly, my sister has been calling me more often! I do love to talk to her. She doesn't like to talk on the phone very much, if at all, so any time she calls it's like a special treat. I like that she just lets me ramble on and on about nothing. Thanks Katie!
Anyway, isn't my life amazing? I think you'd have to agree!

Ever since I've been asking myself what I would put in my own magazine. I have no idea! I guess it'd be a parenting magazine. Am I really a parenting magazine? I like to read them, a lot. I do spend a lot of time dealing with poop and how to get rid of it. Maybe my magazine would be about sewing. I do like to sew. Perhaps it would be about living on a budget? I don't know.
So anyway, the question(s) of the day is/are: if you had a magazine what would it be about? Would you put a photo of yourself on it every month? Do you think others would want to read it?

I also decided that I need to talk to an adult other than my husband. I love him, but when he comes home for the day he's spent! He works so hard at school and talks so much and is concentrating so hard, and still has more studying to do that he doesn't have a whole lot left to give. I totally understand that and I also appreciate that he does make an effort. He talks all during dinner about my day and his day and what we want to do about certain things and it's great. The problem comes in that out of 24 hours I spend 7 hours sleeping (sort of), 15-16 hours conversing with a baby that can't talk, and 1 maybe 2 hours with an adult. I decided I need more.
That is why this morning I walked for about an hour, and had Tammy over with her two kids to play. It was SOOOOO GOOOOOOD! Plus, I think Charlotte was happier having stuff to do with Madeline, Tammy's baby girl. Anyway, we're much happier today.
You'd think that I would be really happy right now right? I got to spend the morning with my friend and a new fridge. Only half of those things happened. I did get to spend the morning with my friend and it was great. I did NOT, however, end up with a new fridge. Let me ask you this one question, when getting a new fridge what is the first step in finding the right criteria? In my book it would be measuring the old fridge, the opening, and the areas you will need to take the fridge to get it into place! I mean honestly, who doesn't measure? You'll end up buying a fridge that is way too big! They couldn't get the fridge down the hallway! My landlord just kept telling them that they should be able to do it. I looked and there was no way they were going to be able to get that fridge in there. They wont be able to get the fridge in if it's too big for the hole you've got to put it through. It's not like fridges can squeeze! So that was a big hassle, and there's no fridge.

This is the two of us with the penguins behind. It was pretty dark in there so you can't really see the penguins, but they were swimming all around.

Now I realize that our house is approximately 2 feet away from our neighbor's and also that the old in the window air conditioning unit sticks out into that space. It would be really difficult to get to the roof from the side of the house. Do you really have to drop EVERYTHING you drop right onto the metal air conditioning unit? Yes, that sound wakes up my baby. Every.single.time. I just get her back to sleep and then they manage to drop more! If they don't drop stuff on the unit then they're banging around on our roof. My anger started to rise as I was trying to work with a screaming baby. It was only kept in check by the fact that I figured the work on the place needed to be done.
This only helped until I took out the garbage. As I was putting it in the dumpster behind our house I looked back and saw that, although their ladder was placed next to our house they were actually working on the chimney of our neighbor's house. They've been clomping, banging, throwing things at our house while not even working on our house! And now they've decided it's time to again bang on our roof. And yes, my baby did just wake up screaming once again.
1. What is the best thing you cooked last week?
Hahahahahaha! We were still moving in last week! I had no stove! I had no oven! So I didn't really cook anything last week. Usually I cook all our meals, but last week I didn't. We're still moving in, but I have the whole kitchen unpacked now. A few nights ago I made taco salad that was pretty good. I planned on having leftovers the next night but my husband had already taken it to school and eaten them for lunch. I guess he liked those.
2. If money, time, and babysitting were no object where would you go and with who?
I guess I'm so lame because I don't really have a destination that I'd love to go to and I'm being held back from. I would like to spend more time with my family. And I would really like to have a whole week of sleeping 8 hours a night without interruptions. So I'd do that if money, time, and babysitting were no object. Probably it would be cool I guess if my family came here to St. Louis for a week and we went to all the places I've seen for families to go to that cost money. St. Louis is great for cheap and free things, but there's also a lot of cool family stuff that does cost money. I'm saving those for when we have money to spend.
3. When was the last time you cried?
I'd say yesterday. As it turns out we're really poor (that's what happens when your husband is in medical school). I was hoping to be able to get some help with medical insurance, but Missouri isn't very helpful. I was so frustrated just trying to get in contact with anyone that could help me. Then when I finally did get a hold of someone all I was told was, "No don't come in we'll mail you something." That and the we're not going to help you one bit news that I received was really frustrating.
4. What is the most played song on your ipod right now?
Hahahaha! This is another funny one since I don't have an ipod. Again we're poor. Also I did have my hands on one and didn't really care to set it up. I know, I know, I've heard all about them being awesome and once you have one you don't know how you'd live without one. My brother said they're like cell phones were. When cell phones were first coming out he'd think to himself that they weren't that big a deal. Then once he got one he would never go back to not having one. Well, to be honest I probably could be just as happy not having a cell phone either. It's just more cost effective to call my family on the cell phone as it is to pay for long distance.
5. Is there something on t.v. this week that you are more excited about than the So You Think You Can Dance finale?
Well, there again we're poor. So that means that we're watching TV through an antenna which receives cbs and nbc and a little bit of fox (which comes in black and white occasionally). Needless to say we don't watch too much TV and I haven't seen any of So You Think You Can Dance.
I don't really have anyone I want to tag though so I'm skipping that part of the whole rigamaroll. Yes, I was also the one that broke the chain letters in elementary school too.

- She's fussy all the time. Even when I'm holding her (which usually quiets that). She's not really outright having a fit, just unhappy and wants me to know about it.
- She's drooling excessively. The whole front of her dress was wet yesterday.
- Today I gave her one of those toys that you put in the freezer so it's cold. She chomped away on it until it fell out. Then she cried again.
- She's sleepy.
The only thing is that I can't feel a tooth yet. So we'll see.
