Bits and pieces

  • I don’t get the fervor around St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, if you’re actually Irish, that’s one thing, but otherwise? It just seems like an excuse to get sloppy drunk for no good reason.
  • My neck and back are still screwy. I’ve now seen a doctor, a chiropractor and a massage therapist. Still to come may be a neurologist (sounds scary, but I’ve been assured it’s not that bad)  and/or a physical therapist. I’m at that point where I’m questioning everyone who I see and have no idea if I’m helping/hurting/just freaking myself out. The only thing that I do know is that being in the car ups my pain level significantly, which makes the commute oh so much worse.
  • I’m contemplating cutting my hair OFF. Like, pixie cut off. Which is a huge deal for me, since I’m hella vain about my hair, and I’ve always thought my face is too…round?fat? I dunno, something…for short hair. But the kid’s favorite move lately is to grab the hairs on the back of my neck and pull little clumps out, so it comes down to vanity vs. pain. My hair appointment is on Friday, we’ll see what I actually end up with.
  • The kid used to go to bed around 9ish. I think he’s about to a point where it needs to be 6:30 or 7:00. Which makes me weep a little, since it means during the week I’ll only get to spend about an hour a day with him. Even thinking about it has me choked up, but I know we have to do what’s best for him, not what mommy’s heart wishes.
  • I hate doing taxes. Mostly because we’re horrible at keeping N.C.’s business stuff together during the year, so at tax time we have to go back and recreate the entire year. Taxes themselves generally end up taking an hour or two. The prep for the taxes? We’re on 10+ hours already, and we’re not done.
  • I need a new mascara, that is contact lens friendly. I’ve tried just about every Maybelline kind, and they all irritate my eyes. I used to use Clinique, but didn’t really like the way it looked. Mascara is one of the two makeup items I wear almost no matter what, so anyone have suggestions?
  • I’m also in the market for a decent pair of jeans. Post c-section, I find that the ones I have, while they “technically” fit just aren’t really flattering. I need to lose some weight, but in the meantime, anyone have jeans brands they just adore?
  • My recent food obsession? Caesar salad. I go through phases where certain foods are my favorites, and right now, Caesar is it.
  • The weather in San Diego has been obscenely beautiful the past few days. God I love living here.

I love Martin and Osa–I’m not sure if they have a store near you yet, but their jeans flatter me like no other.

Also, my hair appointment is Friday too. Let’s be scared together!

Pixie cuts are cute. As you know I’ve had a few. They just require up keep, so if you don’t like needing to get your hair done often, don’t do it. It can’t be worse than bleaching it.

And lay off the stress.

I just participated in a Mascara Round-Table for a friend’s blog. Lots of recommendations from Maybelline, but a few others were also recommended (including my all-time favorite). Maybe you’ll find one you like?
