Whizzing In My Brain

1. Ingesting any caffeinated product after 2 pm is dangerous.

2. I always feel the urge to eat cheese and crackers while watching The Biggest Loser.

3. According to my lipstick shape, I fall in love easily.

4. The mothers only know the names of the children in Wito’s music class, so we refer to one another as [so and so]’s mom. This has to stop.

5. Will Wito the Seasoned Traveler become Wito the Teething Tantrum Traveler on our flight to Oklahoma over the holidays? He’s 22 for 22 on plane flights, people. The bad behavior has got to be lurking around the corner.

6. I have to fire the housekeeper today. I was hoping to pansy out on her voicemail, but she doesn’t have voicemail on her cell phone. Damnit.

7. I don’t think D will ever break free of the Norah Jones, Amos Lee, John Legend and Jamie Cullum heavy morning rotation.

8. Can I really make it to December 1st for a trim? My bangs are brushing the tip of my nose.

9. Please let today be a better day for Wito. Damn you, molars.

10. I couldn’t be more thrilled that today is a not of the running variety.

11. How do you cook a turkey?

That concludes today’s peek into Whoorl’s brain. Hasta mañana, iguana.

    I totally ate cheese and crackers last night while watching Biggest Loser (and Cinnamon Toast Crunch)!

    Also? I jumped rope for 2 minutes after the trivia that you’d have to jump for 120 min to burn off a pepporoni pizza. I could never do that for 2 hours. I got a cramp after 2 minutes. Seriously.

    I too was going to link to The Pioneer Woman. Mmmm, now I’m in the mood for turkey.

    the teething is pretty brutal- at least from what i saw with my nephew. it gets better i hear!

    turkey cooking is pretty easy…or else it better be since i am in charge of the bird this year.

    i need a trim too. fancy that. ;)

    I’m hoping that Wito continues to bat 1.000 on flights. It’s totally possible!

    Our kinder-fitness (haha… fitness, right) class is the same way. Why do we not have name tags/introductions for the moms? That is so stupid.

    And yeah, I was wondering about #11 too. I’m hosting this year. Eek. Hope they’re not planning on me actually cooking! haha!

    I feel you on the molars. My twins are both getting them and seem to have been getting them for weeks (or months….oh, the teething fog!). Good luck on the flight – we’ve been lucky so far too, but our last one definitely had more close calls. We relied heavily on the new books and toys we brought and had no shame in resorting to food bribes…

    Okay… first off: Turkey and other good stuff can be found at http://www.thepioneerwomancooks.com, second: you can usually get in for a bang trim if you say that’s all you want. I just did it at my place, they schedule you for 15 minutes and it cost 10 dollars. Just make sure to specify.

    heh, I checked my lipstick personality, and I fit it to a T. It’s frightening, actually.

    My hairdresser lets me stop by for a trim of my bangs between appointments — no charge, no scheduling. You should see if yours does the same.

    I think you need to write a post on how to survive a plane ride with a baby – I get exhausted just thinking about flying with mine.

    Okay, so a couple of things here. I have a great housekeeper that I have used for a few years whom I highly recommend and completely trust. She speaks English, and we do not use any toxic cleaners in our house. She knows this, and she just uses what I put out for her. If you’d like her phone number email me (I think you should have my email address-former pharmaceutical rep Lisa :-)), and I can give you her information. Also, I seriously was laughing when I read about your music class and how everyone is known as so and so’s mom it cracks me up every time I hear our teacher say it as well–it does have to stop!!!

    My son is getting his molars as well (he is 16 months.) It seems like this has been going on forever! Is Wito sleeping? We have been using motrin for night time, since it last for six hours, but even that I have been only when it gets really bad because I think about his poor little liver. Have you tried teething tablets? I have not…but always wonder. Also, one of those mesh veggie strainers with very cold fruit has worked well.

    Also, the housekeeper issue sucks. I have been thinking about dumping ours for a while, but only because I have to tell her repeatedly what I want done and how. Using products that are not acceptable to you is a whole other story.

    Hang in there! This day sounds like no fun. At least you don’t have to run!

    the thing that sucks is that she has probably been using tilex the entire time! by the way i bought super skinny and will be trying it out soon.

    Luckily, it was only twice. I can smell it from a mile away. Last week, she didn’t use it, but they’ve been running really late this past month and as we all know, I’m not down with people being late.

    I always feel the urge to snack while watching the Biggest Loser.
