Things I Am Thinking About Lately

A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found
no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo.

The Flu vaccines contain mercury

One report shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots.

Research shows that over-use of the flu-vaccine and drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can actually alter flu viruses and cause them to mutate into a more deadly strain.

  • I love Christmas movies
  • I love Christmas specials (Rudolph, Frosty, etc.) even more
  • For some reason I think watching Christmas specials on network channels is better than watching them on cable channels.
  • I am really sad that I can't ever go visit my family at Christmas because Michael works at a retail store and can't get time off during the holidays.
  • I really suck at crossword puzzles, except for celebrity ones. Also ere, ali, and a couple other words are used in almost every crossword puzzle.
  • It would be super awesome to have a White Christmas.
  • I really wish that VHS tapes were not basically obsolete.
  • I love that my house is decorated for Christmas.
  • I hope since Michael is getting off work late he will be willing to buy me some McDonald's.
  • I am apparently a terrible cook now. The last two things I cooked turned out fairly awful. Since I am making the turkey for Michael's family's Christmas Eve dinner I really hope I get back on track soon. But since I don't go to the event at least if it sucks I won't have to hear about it.
  • I had great Thanksgiving celebrations, and am very happy that Michael and I finally spent Thanksgiving together, although I doubt it will happen again for a long time.

  1. I like your new background/format. Took me a minute to realize I was at the right blog. Glad you are blogging again! We are sending out Christmas letter this year too, we didn't last year, but did the first two years we were married. I will have to mail you one!

  2. I try and change it up seasonally. Back when I used myspace I changed my profile like every five minutes! Glad you like it :)

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…

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…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
