I'm not saying nothin' about nothin'

So, I had a great post all ready for this past Wednesday. I was going to try to write something every other day this week. Frankly, I don't know how you guys who write everyday do it. My house looks like the Tazmanian Devil spun through every room as it is. I should never be blogging. But, I am addicted, so there goes the house.

Anyway, I had a great post all ready for Wednesday about how certain types of people seem to be supernaturally fertile and how the Fertility Gods like to just throw babies at these people. It was complete with pictures of the Duggars and Cousin Eddie from the National Lampoon's Vacation movies and everything. But, my husband thought it was in poor taste and could be construed as offensive, and seeing how I am crazed and delirious from menstrual hormones and disappointed, once again, by something I peed on, I thought perhaps he might be right.

So, instead, I will talk about this. Health insurance. Now, isn't this more interesting?

No, it's not, but it is politically correct.

Health insurance. What a racket.

Okay, that's it.

I promised myself I wasn't going to think about any of my problems today or tomorrow or Sunday. No thinking time given to money woes, or medical bills woes, or we're-getting-screwed-out-of-our-life-savings-in-order-to-afford-health-insurance woes, or endometriosis and baby-makin' woes. It's a no woe weekend. Starting............................................................NOW!

Let's talk about Star Wars again. Goody, goody, gumdrops!

So, my 3-yr old nephew came over again yesterday and the first thing he said was, "I wanna watch Star Wars." I was so proud.

Until the only part he wanted to watch was the scene he calls the "dirty trash water part", where Luke, Han and Leia are trapped in a giant trash compactor. He wanted to see it over and over and over again. I even tried to distract him with the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi (what kid doesn't love Ewoks?), but he wasn't impressed. "Where is the dirty trash water part? I want to see the dirty trash water part!" Damn dirty trash water.

Then, at lunchtime, my son threw up the chicken nugget he was eating along with everything he had for breakfast because he was throwing a tantrum in his highchair. He wanted the apples and peanut butter my nephew was eating, even though my son doesn't like peanut butter and he is much too young for apples. I eventually had to separate them and feed my son in the kitchen and my nephew in the living room so I could get my son to eat something.

I spent their naptimes on the phone with health insurance companies (oh crap, there I go again) and by the time my husband came home from work, the house looked like I had that dang Tazmanian Devil over for coffee again. Stupid Tazmanian Devil.

  1. I share your insurance frustrations! We're being gouged with premiums big time. They raise our rates nearly monthly.

    You're making me want to find that scene in the movie now. ;)

  2. I am going through the same crap with my son's insurance companies who keep denying coverage of stuff based on preexisting condiditons. I have to send in the same paperwork AGAIN to remind them that they can't do that.
    Jackasses.

  3. Personally, I want to read that offensive post. :) I've wondered the same thing myself.

    And I'm with you on your woes...no money, no insurance...argh. But the economy is sooo much better. Haven't you noticed??? Snicker.

    Hang in there. No doubt, soon enough you'll have a little someone peeing on you! :)

  4. I don't know if I could pull off a no-woe weekend, but kudos to you for giving it a shot (although, really, who can resist the therapeutic power of ranting about health and insurance and the economy? ;D).

    STAR WARS, though - now THAT is the way to go. I can't wait until my kiddos are old enough to properly appreciate the galactic wonderland that is SW!

  5. I wouldn't mind reading your offensive post...what do husbands know??

    Sorry you're still having a rough time. PMS stinks, doesn't it? My mother-in-law always says "This too shall pass"...and it usually does!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. I totally want to read your post about the Duggars. I will never understand how they get a million and some people struggle to have one. Not to mention the utter unfairness of people like Shaniya's mom who sells her to be a sex slave and is pregnant with a second! WTH???

    We are set to loose our insurance in March. I'm terrified.

  9. Oh ya...good old health insurance. It was 790 bucks a month through my husbands work to insure our family so we said "f*** it" let's take our chances. That's just absurd and crazy!! I could be driving a mazaratti for that amount every month! Or at least afford to get massages, nails, pedicures and hair done.

    Hang in there!!

  13. Stupid Tazmanian Devil.... I love it!
    He has been hanging out at my house, while I blog, as well!!!The little jerk! LOL

    Living in Canada, I forget sometimes how lucky we are for the heath care system we have. Good luck with everything, can't imagine how stressful that would be. It would weigh on my mind for sure. Such an important thing to have when you need it, I find it very disturbing the state that it's in down in your neck of the woods.
    Oh, and can't even count the number of times Trinity "puked" from having a tantrum! Crazy.

  14. You can absolutely write about your woes. Just write it in third person as in "you know I had a friend who has THIS problem...."
    That way, you can vent your little heart out and even feel bad for her!

    Insurance companies stink! We hear ya, though and feel free to round us all up if you need a crowd to yell at..just for the heck of it!

  15. Girrrrl, so with ya, re: fertility and health care woes!
    My little boy doesn't puke from tantrums, but will sometimes (while in the car) intentionally gag himself, nice! :)

  18. let's just say all three of my kids are screwed up on their shots because of bad health insurance and shots we can't afford -- it sucks to think i am a bad parent and holding them from shots they need all because of money that we don't have. wonder what having a stressfree life is like? remember when we were 6 or 8 or 10? i guess that's the closest we came to that type of life. have a good day amy!

  19. Alright friend, screw the politically correct stuff! I have been in those infertile shoes and have lost more babies than I got to keep. You write whatever you want to write and those of us out here cheering you on will decide if we will read it or not! I also am losing my mind over insurance and the stuff they DON'T pay! Feeling your pain but hope you post your former blogpost today! GO GIRL!
