thoughts a la scattered mind

jonas decided to WALK on mother’s day. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!! seriously. he did 3 different 3-4 step sets that day. and today? just 5 days later? like 15 steps in a row!!! ALL DAY LONG. i cried.

we received the sweetest birthday letter/mother’s day letter combo yesterday in the mail. i cried.

i found a HUGE BLACK SPIDER IN MY DOWNSTAIRS BATHROOM. like 3 inches big. BUG SPRAY DID NOT KILL IT. i turned my head because zeusy scared me. SPIDER NO LONGER THERE. VERY SCARED. REFUSE TO GO IN DOWNSTAIRS BATHROOM ANYMORE. i cried.

i’m getting my hair done in one month. i literally cannot remember the last time i had it done professionally. that means color or cut. i think it might have been our wedding day? 2 years (well, almost) ago.

jonas goes for his one year well baby check tomorrow morning. i’m still debating on whether or not to delay his first mmr shot. i KNOW that the research says it’s not linked to autism. but i also personally know three babies that changed after that shot. and it scares me. plus john has an autistic cousin. and that scares me.

i may be fat, but dang it, i think i’m pretty cute. and that should count for something, right?

i love my husband. i miss him more than i can explain. sometimes i pile the pillows up next to me, and i pretend it’s him laying so close to me in bed. and then i wake up. and i cry.

i really like lemon. lemon lotion. lipgloss. body wash. flavor. desserts.

 

the end.

I thought this blog/comic summarized the vaccine controversy particularly well: http://tallguywrites.livejournal.com/148012.html .

Also, this episode of This American Life has a heartbreaking story about a measles outbreak due to an unvaccinated child contracting the disease and spreading it to infants under 12 months who were in the same grocery store: http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/370/Ruining-It-for-the-Rest-of-Us

That episode has the added bonus of having a hilarious story from Mike Birbiglia that is not about vaccines at all, but does involve him smashing the TiVo while thinking he won a gold medal in dustbustering.
