My little angel

On Fridays Isabella and I go to the cabin to workout an then to the playhouse to see her friends Orion and Gabriel. We do this every week. I was going around the house getting things ready to go when something happened that could have changed the whole day.

I was going into Isa's room to get her clothes when I saw her sitting on the bathroom floor. She does this from time to time so she can play with her bath toys. I knew something was up though because she wasn't moving. She was sitting there like a little statue. She does this when she has done something wrong in hopes that if she sits really still you wont notice what she has done. I walked in and asked her what was wrong and she pointed to her ear. She has been trying to see what fits h=in her ear since about Christmas. I stepped forward and looked in her ears and that's when I spotted it.

a few weeks ago my mom got Isa some really cute ponytail holders. They have streams of ribbon tied to hem and little rhinestones glued to the end of the ribbon. Any guesses as to what I saw? Yep, she had put one of the little rhinestones in so deep I could barely see it. I totally freaked out. This is the first thing to get stuck in my baby. I called the pediatrician begging for and appointment. They said to call the ear nose and throat doctor in Boone. I got the number and called. Since she had never been there before I had to talk to the new patient receptionist. I got her machine. I tried to leave a message as calmly as I could. After I hug up I felt helpless. I was trying to keep Isa's hands away form her ears because she was trying to get in it deeper. I had no idea what to do. Should I call Josh at work? My mom? I needed to call someone. Someone had to help my poor baby who's hearing could be permanently damaged! It was about this time that I looked down and saw Isa looking up at me with an expression o her face like "what's wrong with you?" I knew I had to calm down. I took a deep breath and decided to try and get it out myself. I'm a mom, I should be able to do this. I put on a movie to keep her attention and put Isabella on my lap. I then spent the next five minutes massaging the back lower part of her ear and I am proud to say ................I got it out. Yet another thing I can put on my mommy resume. It was really gross and covered in wax but I am proud to say my daughter can hear. I took some pictures but you can't really see anything because it's so far in there.


The Big Mistake

If you have not yet seen star wars episode III and don’t want to know anything bout it then do not read this post!

I decided to surprise josh and get us tickets to go see star wars Thursday night. He was surprised and we were almost late. We went in and found pretty good seats. Josh was really excited. I on the other hand was there mostly for him. When the movie was over I felt betrayed and disgusted. Had I been able to contact Mr. Lucas I would have had some very colorful things to say to him. Here is my review and some of my thoughts, well, mostly my thoughts.

I thought the movie sucked! I am not sure how to adequately describe my disgust. As usual the writing was beyond cheesy. IT was by far the worst script I have heard for a serious movie. If it was meant to be a comedy then it was pretty good (space balls was better). He even had yoda saying stupid stuff. He was the only character you could rely on in the other movies to not be cheesy. I felt like Lucas had written the whole thing in about three hours max and that he was sitting in his huge house laughing at all the stupid people for running to go see it.

It was way too graphic. I think I could have understood just how evil Darth Vader is without the child slaying scene. I also think I could have imagined Vader being in fire and all his skin melting off without actually seeing it.

The thing that ultimately turned him was week.

I will say one good thing about his movie and let me stress that it is just one good thing. The special effects. They were the best I have ever seen in a movie. Maybe that is because Lucas finally let someone else do them.

The main blunder Lucas made was a story line error. I mean how hard is it to remember what you freaking right!!!! Let’s flash forward or backward or whatever to episode six when Luke and Leia were in the ewok village and Luke tells her who their dad is. Everyone remember? Luke begins by asking her what she remembers of her mother; here is the catch, her real mother. Anyone remember what she said? She said she only has a few memories, mostly feeling because she died when Leia was very young. She goes on to say that she always seemed sad but that she was very kind. My question is this. How in the freaking world does padmea die giving birth then!!!!! She knew the people who raised her weren’t her real parents. If she didn’t why would Luke say your real mother? Josh thinks that since Leia is strong in the force that she can remember her as a newborn. That doesn’t work for two reasons. One, padmea dies right after they come out and she names them. Two, Luke tells Leia that he has no memories of his mother and he came out first so if either of them had memories from then it would be him. WHAT THE HECK!!!! How in the world does she die then!!!! Lucas totally changed a story line he already wrote and put in the last movie.

I think the main reason this bugs me so much is because they aren’t good movies. You like these movies because they remind you of your childhood. They were good when you were a kid. By changing a story line he has no made the movies incoherent. They can’t remind me of my childhood anymore because they don’t go together. To me there is going to be star wars the trilogy and then those crappy prequels some guy tried to make. How did this happen? I am so angry that this post doesn’t even begin to describe what I really think. Just ask josh. He new that I was upset and as soon as the movie was over I turned to him and he said ”Just let me enjoy it for a second ok?” which I did. Then I went off for a couple hours and he graciously listened. I am so upset about his movie hat when josh mentioned buying kotor2 I said no because I didn’t want Lucas getting anymore on of my money. For the record I played kotor for over 32 hours so my saying no to kotor2 is a big deal.

This is all I can think of right now. I just needed to get some of this off my chest. I never want to see that movie again.


Odds and Ends

I don't really have anything to blog about so I thought I would post some pictures I have taken over the past few days. I thought they were funny and hopefully you will too.

This is my first homemade mother's day present from Isabella. She made it during story time at the library today.

Maybe this is really dorky but I thought this sheet of stamps was really neat. If you look really close you can see the USA 37 all over the picture. Those are the stamps.

I thought Isa was going to help my fold the laundry but she really wanted to go workout. Here she is trying to put my underwear on her head.

Just when I was going to step in and help her she got them over her head. We fixed them for her.

Then the running shorts. I guess she has seen me get ready for running a lot.
