this will be painfully boring, don't say i didn't warn you - slowly turn around and hit the back button before you read too much

although i'm tired i can't seem to sleep at night. but i'm not the only one.

Jocie has kept us on our toes for the last 3 or 4 days now. she is boycotting sleep and eating, little manic if you ask me. when she does sleep she wakes up often, crying yelling no and not coherent. i don't want to use the word "possessed" but honestly i don't know any other way to describe these bouts. well she did eat dinner tonight, finally, and she went down like a champ.... so maybe... fingers crossed.

i'm feeling like a human again, but can't seem to leave my bed. i'm staring at loads of laundry, dirty and clean. ya, christmas decorations are still up - but we took down the tree this weekend, gosh. when is this writers strike gonna be over? does kendra on the girls next door bother ANYONE as much as she bothers me? i wish someone would throw something in her mouth when she laughs that irritating laugh and she would choke on it? i can't believe holly hasn't put a hit out on her yet.

as i sit here and eat day old clearance cake from the grocery store i wonder: are there any adults that like sprinkles on their cake? i know they don't taste, but come on they are still yucky. ug, i ate too much cake. baby likey though.

after work on sat we (yes with Dave!) went to matt matt's birthday party, transformer themed - who could ask for anything more? and then we took dave's sister char and niece courtenay out for dinner to celebrate char's birthday. take a guess which part jocie was more pleasant for...

we watched the first season of arrested development this weekend, dang that show rocked!

family dinner last night was fun, curt was nice, rachel who is ready to have that baby any minute was treated to a foot massage and pedicure by my sisters, austin finally brought his "girl"friend to meet us, and chad 1's parents from Montana were there. it was loud, lots of food, pazzooki for dessert, and only minor head injuries to matt matt that involved neosporin so "he didn't scar". all in all, pretty successful night. my poor dad blew his knee out this week, it sucks to watch your dad who really is perfect in every way as well as my idol get around with a crutch. i hope he will heal fast. i think my mom is getting into the movie slide show business... she can come up with a dvd slide show set to music at a moments notice, matt's birthday slide show was fun - the kids laughed like hyenas all the way through.

i think that brings me to the end of my journaling. i warned you not to read it.

sometimes those babies want us to eat things we don't really want, don't they? sounds like a wonderful family day you all had. congrats on the pregger state, by the way...sounds like you will have your practically perfect hands very full.

jocie will eventually decide to sleep. hopefully it is much sooner rather than later for you. :)

oh my gosh totally, why hasn't holly whacked Kendra yet? why? why? why? K dub bugs and have you noticed this season that holly and Kendra are never in the same scene except when Hef is around. I might be starting a rumor but what do I care?

Sarah said...

you watch girls next door, oh practically perfect you have fallen off your pedestal, lol. I think all the girls on that show are annoying. They act so ditzy, and I can't stand how their lives revolve around a different party almost every day. Maybe I'm just jealous.:)

Suze said...

I don't like Kendra. She and her mother are annoying. All the girls' hair get on my nerves. Why do I even watch the show? Maybe for Mary and Winnie :)

Practically Perfect In Every Way said...

sarah: what pedestal? oh that's just a bunch of folding chairs stacked high enough for me to break my neck.

for the record i don't MEAN to watch it, it's just the only thing i can find on that isn't the news. ick!

suze: poor winnie, i think she will be the next celebrity suicide thanks to her stage mom.

You know that everyone is GOING to read it because of that! Sounds pretty eventful actually! My favorite part: "Baby Likey though."

Why would anyone ever want to leave their bed? That's the most normal reaction a person can have.
