"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Randoms from my life

*In Cecily's words, "In related news, if you have any cash to spare, please visit In Due Time and contribute a dollar or two to her custody battle for her niece. As much as In Due Time loves her sister, her sister is not currently able to parent her daughter appropriately. Help if you can. I wish I could have helped more."

*I took my bestest friend to the hospital today because she needed to have a minor procedure done. We did the same thing about a year ago. Last year, the nurse mistook us for a lesbian couple. This year, a nurse claimed we must be sisters because we look a little alike (we don't). I'm not sure which amuses me more.*I was asked by one of the nurses at the hospital if it took a lot of courage to dye my hair purple. I thought about it for a split second and said "You know, not really. I've reached the point where I don't really care what people think about me. If I like it, it's all good. Besides that, it's only hair. If I don't like it, it will grow out." She seemed a bit surprised.

*Gabe already has a friend at pre-school. His name is Travis. I think Travis and Gabe are kindred spirits. They were calling each other bad boy and laughing hysterically.

*My friend Kristi is starting a blog titled Shit my Dad says has NOTHING on shit my Mom does(I'll let you know when she gets her first post up)(wink, wink, nudge, nudge Kristi). I've know Kristi forever. She introduced my husband and me. It dawned on me this evening that she would LOVE going to BlogHer next summer so I called her up. I had to call her right then because, if I don't do it when I think about it, it doesn't end up happening. Not only did she love the idea, she loved it enough that she hopped online and made our hotel reservations. So, I guess that means I'm going to BlogHer11...woohoooo.

*I just found out that one of my first bloggy friends in the ALI community has made a raging success of the business she and her husband started. It's called KangarooBoo and their slogan says they sell "unique, wooden, handmade baby toys and smart children's products."They've been mentioned in about 15 national magazines like Oprah, Parenting, and Newsweek!

*Can anyone explain to me why they do not offer these socks in adult sizes?*I need about another 24 hours in every single day to complete all the projects I want to do. Somehow, I will have to restrain myself.

*Migraines suck (Thanks Hurricane Earl) and UTIs suck. Both in the same week are karmic injustice.

*Why oh why do news stations send people out to stand in the middle of a hurricane when everyone else is being told to evacuate? Makes no frakking sense to me. Also, do those reporters get hazard pay?

*You know school is going to be interesting when, after the first day, part of the monologue about the activities includes "We also played with the trains. Travis took my trains so I hit him." Luckily, the teacher handled it well.

*I found out that (with the help of a family friend and with a little remodeling) I can move my washer and dryer out of the closet (off my kitchen) with the accordion doors and into the third bathroom off of the den. We don't use this bathroom because of problems with the toilet and this move will free up that big closet for kitchen storage. Our friend says the total cost shouldn't be more than $150.

What's going on in your life?

Wow! You have had quite the day! Sorry to hear about your UTI and migraine! I get migraines a LOT, so I feel ya. Hang in there!

Hope the migraine and the UTI go away soon!

I am absurdly jealous about the extra storage space you're going to get in your kitchen. Not because I need kitchen space, but because I am generally storage deprived.

Those socks are entirely too cute.
Hope the migraine is gone and the UTI is almost gone. Neither sound like much fun.

Hope your migraine goes away! Yeah, I really don't get the weather/news people always trying to get themselves kilt out there...
