Merry Christmas!!!

I am quite late on my Christmas post.  But I thought it would be pretty lame if I actually blogged on Christmas.  -tangent- I don't want to say "blogged" or "skyped" or "facebooking" anymore.  These are not real verbs and should not be treated as such.

I had a wonderful Christmas.  I missed being with my family, but since they live far away and are all in pieces now anyways, its easier anyways.  Plus since Michael works retail we can't get time off around Christmas anyways.  It wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, seeing as how I make plans for things without talking to other people about them, but it was nice anyways.

On Christmas morning you would think I was 5 years old again.  I got up at 8 am.  After going to bed around 2 or so.  I couldn't wait to open my presents.  Unfortunately my dear husband does not get nearly as excited about things as I do, so I laid in bed playing games on my phone for an hour and a half.  Finally I decided that I would just get up and use the computer while I waited for him, but as I was getting dressed I noticed his phone was vibrating.  It was his mother.

Apparently we were supposed to be over there at 9 am.  It was now 9:30 so I brushed my hair and Michael got dressed and we left.  DO YOU SEE THE PROBLEM HERE?!?!  I still have not gotten to open my presents!  Also, I was planning on continuing my family tradition of cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning.  Instead we had sausage and biscuits and eggs and bacon at Michael's mom's.  We opened presents there, then everyone decided to play a game.  We also decided we all needed giant sodas.  It was almost noon and most of my presents were still under my tree!  So we stopped and got them on the way to the store.  Then I opened them and we played games for a while and then we came back home.

I made Christmas dinner.  It was only for Michael, Dave (our roomate) and I, but still, I made it all by myself.  Turkey, stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes, chocolate pie, corn, green beans, salad and olives.  Obviously some parts of it were easier then others.  Amazingly it all turned out delicious.  We still have tons of turkey, which I am going to put in the freezer when I am done catching up on my blog.  I spend 3 hours in the kitchen and about 15 minutes in the dining room, but it was pretty awesome being told how yummy my food was.  Then it was back to the kitchen for an hour to clean up. 

In the evening we just watched movies, but it was nice.  Plus Michael kept his promise and didn't play any video games.  I don't really care when he plays, I just didn't want to be left out on Christmas.  Before we went to bed we drank a little.  I didn't get drunk, as I only had 1 1/2 b*tch beers, but it was enough that I was to lazy to get off the couch and go to bed, so Michael carried me.

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…
