notable notes

I've been racking my brain trying to think of something worth writing about lately, but there's just not much happening 'round these here parts. Which is a good thing when you consider the last five years of my life. So I figured I'd do a random round-up of the last week's most notable notes.

Notable Note #1:
I found Orla Kiely! My Target had been seriously lacking in O.K. merch, but I check every time I go, just in case. And look! Look at what I found!

They coordinate perfectly with my oh-so-adorable tea towels that I won over at Becky's. I now drink four different cups of coffee a day. Hahaha... haha........ ha... ahem.

Notable Note #2:
Yesterday I sliced my thumb open whilst attempting to pull the pit out of an avocado. I've done that little trick for years and this is the first time I stabbed myself instead of the pit. I clearly remember a moment where I thought I might die. (But also it's plausible that I tend to over-react a little bit in situations such as this, so my account may be slightly unreliable.) Since this is the first time I've ever been stabbed I wondered, How does one know if one should go get stitches after being stabbed? I decided to wait it out and I'm glad I did because it turns out that a Band-Aid is doing the trick just fine. So my advice is, if you ever get stabbed, skip the long line at the Emergency Room. Band-Aids, dude.

Notable Note #3 through #903:
I took like 900 pregnancy tests last week even though I knew there was no possible way I could be pregnant. But when you're 27 days late it's like, I dunno, could I just have forgotten or something? It turns out weight loss can prevent ovulation which can make you miss a period. (There's your lady parts lesson for today.) And I definitely have lost weight, albeit unintentionally. All the stress has not been good for me. But the cookies are helping me pack the pounds back on. (Thanks, cookies!)

Notable Note #904:

Notable Note #905:
I have a lot of really cool people in my life. Really cool. I have a hard time keeping up with everyone and everything but I am very appreciative of my f r i e n d s. (If you didn't get a letter, it just means I ran out of letters. Or I don't know your blog address. Or you don't have one. Which means you need to get with the program, slacker. I mean, if you're reading this you can pretty much be assured that you're really cool. Seriously, love you.)

Notable Note #906:

What is the line between letting kids be kids (destroy stuff) and teaching them to respect their belongings (not destroy stuff)? I tend to err on the side of the former but I'm wondering if that's not entirely as cool as I originally thought. In other words I've been cleaning a lot of crayon off the walls lately.

Notable Note #907:

My kids have swine flu. I mean a cold. Or allergies or something. Actually I'm not entirely sure what it is, I just know there's lots of snot and whining and naughtiness. Naughtiness is a symptom of swine flu, right? (I'm just kidding, CDC, we really don't have swine flu. Please allow me to continue my delayed vax schedule. Danke.)

So, that's all the news that's fit to print (or non-news, as the case may be definitely is). Hope you guys are all healthy and happy.

once i sliced my knuckle on the cheese grater. hubs and i were arguing while i was making a quiche. i don't recommend getting into involved convos with anyone while grating cheese and i will never look at gruyere the same.

I did the same thing with a knife, sharp little devils. I needed stitched but it was already past the 24hrs, so I used steri-strips. They help to close the wound and act like stitches.

OMG, so many notable things to dig into, but lemme start with KIELY! KIELY! I can't believe your Target still had those! So cute.

And wow, 27 days late? Girl, eat your cookies. Maybe crumble them into a glass of milk.

And if naughtiness is a symptom of swine flu, I have Patient Zero right here. Luckily the CDC is down the road.

I totally know what you mean about the 900 pregnancy tests even though you know you couldn't possibly be preggo. It's even cooler when you wrap the negative test stick with a whole roll of toilet paper and shove it WAY into the bottom of the trash can so that hubby will not get PO'd that you just peed on ANOTHER 5 dollar bill for no real reason (except for paranoia, hormones, and maybe the slight inkling that you'd secretly LOVE an "oops" pregnancy because that would decide the debate over 2 vs. 3 kids...that was me last month. :)

Snot and naughtiness! Got 'em here, too. And whining--that's one of the symptoms, right? Last week, at 3am, Ava was begging me to take her to the hospital and I was all, "You have a cough. Go back to sleep." Am I not merciful?

Lovin' your blog! You are so funny and full of life!
