Everyday this week I have had nightmares. The stressful kind in which you wake up with a headache that lingers throughout the day. I also broke out into little bumps on my palms, which seem to only come when I'm majorly stressed. I think it's mostly due to family stuff. I'm a sensitive person and I sometimes I wish I wasn't. Then I could just go on with my life without a care. Why do I care so much about what people think or how they feel about me??

Nevin had a few teeth removed by the dentist yesterday. He was so brave and I'm so proud of him! Later when he was feeling a bit better, Josh took the boys to Chuck E Cheese. :)

Speaking of that. Why does insurance have to be such a pain in the butt? The receptionist at the dentist told us our balance(which to our surprise is a lot!)so we asked why it was so much as there must be a mistake. Well, evidently our dental insurance doesn't want to cover my wisdom teeth removal. They are saying medical should pay for it. Ummm..what?? So my dentist is saying they can't even bill medical for whatever reason and that we'll need to call dental and work it all out. So frustrating.

This morning Kieran was helping me cut up an apple when he excitedly blurted out "This is amazing!". It was so cute! Nevin, his friend and I couldn't help but giggle a little. He's learning so much everyday!

Turns out it was the battery. So nothing major. We did get it flushed and an oil change too, though.

Car Trouble

UGH!! So Josh calls me at nearly 6:00pm and tells me the car won't start. He's called AAA (at 5ish,was on hold for a 1/2 an hour) and they are sending a tow truck out. they should be there anytime between then and 8:49. Okay, great perfect...just what we need. So he waits and waits and waits. 9:00 rolls around and still no sign. Finally at around 11:00am they call to say that they didn't get the information that the car was in a parking garage and the only truck they have that fits in one broke down. WTH? He told them it was in a parking garage!!! So another company finally came at nearly midnight and he's on his way home. It only took like 6+ hours. Luckily he wasn't stranded on the side of the road freezing. He was in a nice warm office. I guess they are really busy today. It's so cold that everyone is having car trouble.

We have no idea whats wrong with the car. Josh said it's not the battery(which kinda sucks since that's a pretty easy fix) and the car wasn't giving us any warning signs.
I just hope it doesn't cost a lot to repair.

It's My Birthday!!

Well for another half hour anyway ;P. It was a great one. My hubby made me cupcakes and I got cards and a Wii Fit pouch. I never have pockets when I'm using it so this will be so handy! Then my Friends Shannon and Shaun(thanks so much!!!) watched the kids for us! I know...we actually went and did something without the kids! How crazy is that? Haha.
We went to the movies and saw Yes Man. It was pretty darn funny! Well, all but the dead chickens part. That part pissed me off. :( But we had a great time together! It's nice being able to talk and reconnect without little voices interrupting us..hehe. So. I'm 31. Wow.

George the Giant Lobster

NEW YORK (CNN) -- A giant lobster named George escaped a dinner-table fate and was released Saturday into the Atlantic Ocean after a New York seafood restaurant granted him his freedom, according to a statement from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

George the lobster was a "sort of mascot" for City Crab and Seafood in New York.

The lobster, which PETA said was 140 years old and weighed 20 pounds, had been confined to a tank at City Crab and Seafood restaurant in Manhattan when two customers alerted the animal group.

The PETA statement did not say how the extraordinary age estimate was determined, but restaurant manager Keith Valenti told CNN that lobsters can grow a pound every seven to 10 years, and he put George's weight at 18 to 20 pounds.

"I've been here for 12 years, and that's the biggest lobster I've ever seen," Valenti said.

He said the lobster had been "sitting in the restaurant's tank and acting as a sort of mascot," but when PETA got involved and requested the release, it "seemed like the right thing to do."

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement, "We applaud the folks at City Crab and Seafood for their compassionate decision to allow this noble old-timer to live out his days in freedom and peace.

"We hope that their kind gesture serves as an example that these intriguing animals don't deserve to be confined to tiny tanks or boiled alive."

Shedding the tight confines of his old restaurant display tank, George was driven to Maine by PETA members and was returned to his natural habitat on the ocean floor Saturday, the organization said.

Alanis Morissette Goes Vegan

I love to hear such good news! And I love me some Alanis. You can read all about it here .


So I got the book Twilight for Christmas!! I'm only into the 2nd chapter, but so far it seems pretty good! I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to books. I tend to lose interest pretty easily(mostly with fiction). I'm excited to finish it and see the movie! I'm sure I'll love the book...I've heard so many rave reviews!
Nevin told me a lot of his friends have read or are reading it too. I told him after I'm done he can read it if he wants. Hopefully it's suitable for 11 year olds?I guess I'll find out. :)
