E is for Emergency, P is for Pain

So...I know I've touched on this before...but, I'm gonna touch on it again.
And, by "touch on", I mean "a whole post about".
*Stepping onto soapbox...*
I interrupt your regularly scheduled day with a Public Service Announcement!!!
As y'all know (are you all okay with me pretending I'm a Southern Belle sometimes? A Southern Belle with a heavy MinneSOOOta accent and pasty white skin?)...anywho...as y'all know, I'm a nurse.
In OB...not ER...but still (sheesh, let's not get caught up on technicalities...) a nurse.
My uber...my pinnacle...my creme de la creme of pet peeves is people who "misuse" Emergency Rooms.
In case it wasn't obvious...Emergency Rooms are for...well...I'll spell it out plain as day...EMERGENCIES!

Not for, a 24/7 clinic.
Not for, I've had a cough all week, it's Friday, I'll just go to the ER for a quick check after work.
Not for, I have a smidge of a headache, haven't taken anything for it to try t…

Note to Self

Yo! Self...it's me (again)...
I've gotta a bone to pick with you, girl.
Dude...when you go shopping for Easter clothes at the 10th hour...you can NOT get frustrated when you find everything (yes, EVERYTHING) is picked over. You hear?
It is your own stinkin' fault that your kids are going to look like a mish-mash of colors...all willy nilly...no color scheme or matching involved whatsoever.
You...my dear...have only yourself to blame for procrastinating.
Suck it up.
And, don't complain.
Next year, get a head start, m'kay?
Alrighty, then.
Til next time, Me

Miss E's Big Day...

Yesterday, was a big day for our Miss E.
For the first time, she received Holy Communion...and, it was a perfectly beautiful day for it!
Here is our day in technicolor...(Let me just say, I've always thought the tradition of dressing up our First Communicant daughters as little brides was a bit strange...but, it was really fun when it actually came time to do it! And, of course, I didn't think it was weird yesterday!)

Bits and pieces:



At church:

Group photo time:
Reading her petition (in which she did a FABULASTIC!!! job...ahem...not that, you know, I'm biased or anything...):
And, now...the party!
Me and my girl:

Phew!

Wow! What a day...
It was GO! GO! GO! from sun up 'til sun down today!
Miss E celebrated her First Communion today, and I woke to "Mom, can I put my dress on now?" Followed by (at 5, 10, 12.3, and 13.7 minutes, respectively...), "Mom, can I put my dress on now?" "Mom, now can I put my dress on?" "Mom, now?" "Can I put my dress on NOW, Mom?"
It was a beautiful day, all aspects of it! (Photos to come soon...)
Friday, we went to see "How to Train Your Dragon" with my bro, his girlfriend, and her son...and, lemme say...on behalf of ALL of us...WHAT A GREAT MOVIE!!!
We loved it! Totally want to see it again.
Okay...I wasn't gonna post this tonight...but, I decided to anyway!

Five Question Friday! 3/26/10

I'm not really quite sure what is up with my baby's chewing...I think she was fascinated with herself!
Yikes!! Once again...sorry for the late posting, we're sleepy heads around here!!

It's a busy weekend for us...our Miss E. has her First Communion on Sunday, so we're trying to get ready for that (fingers tightly crossed for gorgeous weather on Sunday...)!
Did you know that a lot of 5QF'ers are vlogging today???? It was declared "Vlog Friday", so it should be an incredibly fun 5QF hop!
I myself...am not vlogging...not 'cuz I'm a party pooper...but 'cuz this post wouldn't have gotten up until, like 4pm, what with needing to be "presentable" for the camera and having a coupla little interrupters around...but, maybe next time? ;)
Okay, let's get down to bidness!!

Pregnancy Cravings...and Pica

Okay my friends...this is where you might decided I'm certifiably crazy, declare me a nut job weirdo, and wash your hands of me...but, I've gotta level with you. Honesty, it's the best policy (or something...).
You know...pregnancy cravings? We all have 'em (had 'em)...pickles, ice cream, lemon drops, homemade cookies...you know. All the "normal" stuff.
And then there was me.
Weird, abnormal, nut job me.
Oh, I had some weird cravings..."sauces" (aka "dip"), liquids, homemade (from scratch) cookies...but (no judging now...) that's not what's so odd.
No...what's odd, is that I craved things that would make people's jaw drop when they found out. They'd blush...giggle...and then ask me if I'm serious. To which I respond...
"You betcha, baby!"
I'm kind of a "legend" to some people. At lunch break at work one day, people were talking about pregnancy cravings. Someone started to say, "Hey, I hea…
