Awkward! or How Amazingly Inept Rachel Can Be

Unless I spelled that wrong, awkward is a really awkward looking word actually...  I just used the spell-checker and I spelled it right. 

I, in general am an awkward person.  Don't worry I am going to pull up a thesaurus and find an nice synonym for the word so I can stop repeating it.

When I eat, I am incredibly clumsy.  I ALWAYS seem to end up wearing something that I was eating, either that or the floor ends up wearing part of my meal/snack. 

Watching me dance would be hilarious as "two left feet" doesn't even begin to describe me.  I'm always trying to do dance workouts, because they look more fun than the average cardio exercise.  They probably are more fun, but I am always a step behind and waving my arms around like an idiot.  Hopefully Michael never leaves me so I need to get a job as a stripper, because not only do I avoid being naked whenever possible, but my act would involve going on stage, taking off my clothes, covering my dirty bits and running crying off stage (probably to some awesome butt rock song like Girls, Girls, Girls).  Now I have never been to a strip club, but I watch alot of TV and from what I have seen, that is not what you are supposed to do.  I guess I might get drunk and fall off stage instead...

I am not only physically bumbling, but socially as well.  I just don't know what to do.  I want people to like me, I really do.  Which is strange because in general I don't like people when I first meet them, but I still need them to like me.  To avoid people NOT liking me, I just don't talk to them.  Kinda counter-productive considering that probably makes most people think I am a snobby bitch, when really I just would rather have them not like me for assuming I am a bitch, then really getting to know me and not liking me for more personal reasons.

Even social interaction with people I know and like sometimes makes me uncomfortable.  Like I would love more friends considering (if you don't count facebook or people I talk to if I run into them) I have two friends, one of whom I hardly see because I am to cheap to use up my gas and to lazy to drive all that way by myself anyways.  But I can't just ask people over, what if they say no?  What if it turns out that they don't actually like me, they are just pretending?  What if they say yes, then it ends up we have nothing to talk about and just sit around avoiding eye contact?  What if I invite them to dinner and they hate my cooking?  Alot of things can go wrong when you are trying to make new friends.  Or I am guessing it can, I have not actually tried in years.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
