Wednesday's Wrandom Wramblings

Time for another bout of randomness.  Oh, who are we kidding?  Every day of my life seems a bit full of randomness.  I can't seem to put two cohesive thoughts together.  I used to.  I wonder what happened?

I totally get why people go private with their blogs.  I do.  But I forget to read them!  I forget that they are out there!  If it's not in my reader, it's just kinda off my radar.  So, if you have a private blog, I'm sorry if I haven't been around lately.  Oh yeah, and when my computer crashed, I lost them all.

I leave in a few hours for San Diego.  My husband needs laundry done first.  It'll be cutting it close.  We might be drying good girls and good boys by hanging them out the window as we drive down I-15.  Should be good times.

Leaving the two boys home.  Alone.  Granted they are adults, I really have no reason to worry.  It's just weird to think of them taking care of themselves. Really, what's up with that?  Luka did it for 2 whole years!
 I guess a Mom never stops worrying right?

Today is Bulldog's birthday.  23.  This day 23 years ago, I was FREAKING OUT that I was going to have to push a baby out through my hoo-hah.  My water broke at home.  And then again more gushing on the steps of the hospital while Splenda was parking the car.  I started to cry and an orderly came out, loaded me in a wheelchair and took me to Labor and Delivery.  I was greeted with "Oh good, another one who's wet her pants"  I was terrified, but determined to do it 'natural.'.  I got dilated to a 3, and distinctly remember the buttons of Splenda's shirt in my face as I clutched him yelling for drugs.  I'm such a wimp.  I learned right then, that the next baby, I was going to call the anesthiologist on my way in and have me meet me in the room.

Since the birth of my first son, life has never been the same.  And that's a good thing.  It's not supposed to be.  Hopefully I am a better person.  Hopefully, I am a little smarter.  Hopefully, I have pissed him off enough times to know that I have done my job as a Mom.  Your kids should hate you once in awhile.  That's how you know your doing it right.

I just realized I didn't get any pictures of us together at lunch.  Crap. 

I will be purchasing a Flat Daddy for Sissy, once 'dawg gets deployed.

I have great friends.  That thought has been in my head a lot the last 24 hours.  But really, I am surrounded by awesome people.  I'm a lucky duck.

Better go change the laundry since it's T-40 minutes to departure!

The wrandom you is dead-on balls accurate (it's an industry term). I am a great friend. And I surround you. Well played.

Have a safe trip! Happy B-day to Bulldog =D

Cherie said...

Have a fun trip and enjoy the sun you already have the tan (wink)!

My posts and my brain always seem to be on random mode lately too.

Moms never stop worrying about their kids. Never. My 90 yr old Grandpa would worry about my 60 yr old Mom.

San Diego!! Me = jealous.

I think I need to work on my kids hating me a little more. They like me too much.

Plain Jame said...

awww, cute about your boy. You're a great mama! The boys will be fine - have FUN!!!

Lara said...

Happy Anniversary of motherhood to you!

And have a wonderful time in San Diego...Wish I were going!

tiburon said...

Oh and I have decided that I am going to begin wrandom, ninja like, stealthy pop in visits. They will never know when I am coming... and before they realize I am there it will be too late.

I will keep you posted.

MommyJ said...

I feel the same way about private blogs... it isn't that I don't want to read, but with nothing to remind to GO and read. I always forget.

Hope your trip is fantastic!

Pedaling said...

everyone should do a natural birth at least once----just to say they did it...ha

Sue said...

I luv San Diego..

why stop worrying? what would us moms do?

Devri said...

Random? I love your random-ness! I think sometimes they make the best posts! I lost all my private people too, lol I see them commenting and once I clicked on it, and it was like. umm you stopped coming, so get out of here~ oh well.. I agree, you are surounded by awesome people, family AND friends..

linda said...

Have a wonderful trip to San Diego. The weather should be beautiful this weekend.

Natural childbirth...been there, done that! (How stupid was I!?!)

I know what you mean about private blogs. I have a few blogging friends that I totally forget to check on, then it takes me awhile to catch up with them. Out of sight, out of mind!

kado! said...

i even forget to update my private there!

You are such a great Momma!

and I love the flat-daddy! how cool!

Loralee and the gang... said...

Have fun!
And the payoff is when you kids are adults with kids of your own, and they say, "ya know, now I get why you did/said what you did/said". That has actually happened to us, already with our oldest ... never in a million years did we think it would happen. . .

kris said...

New here. Nice writing!

If the job of a mom is to be hated once in a while, then I am doing an astoundingly fabulous job with my two daughters. They will be annoyed to hear that someone agrees with me. Thanks for the reminder!

Have a great time in San Diego!

I'll be waiting for your next post!

Happy 23 birthday to Mr. Bulldog!!!

And safe travels to San Diego. :)

Wrandom...that's how we spell it in canada too.
Little miss sassy pants Amber always teases me about the Canadian spelling...honour, colour, neighbour...are you getting what I am throwing at ya??

The kids should be fine while you are gone. I wouldn't worry....did you see Risky Business?? (j/k)
or home alone??

I love San Diego.....whatcha going to do (whatcha, I got that off of you)

Omgirl said...

The orderly actually said a joke about wetting her pants to a laboring woman??? I would have punched that guy in the face!!! he should know better.

AS Amber said...

You're much braver than I am. I had the anesthesiologist meet me in the lobby!

And look at Wendy mouthin' off up there! Not my fault the Canuks spell stuff weird!
