Holy Moley!

So, I haven't posted about this yet. Back at 15 weeks I had a kidney stone. Extremely painful! I would much rather push out another 9 pound baby. (Who knows I might get that in February!) I happened to pass a rather small stone. It looked like a grain of sand. Then back at the beginning of October I had another stone that was painful. This time I didn't find the stone. The doctor thought perhaps I didn't pass it all the way. That seemed very likely as Sunday evening I had more pain but it was lower than the other time in October. I still didn't feel great yesterday and today seemed to still be having some symptoms. I told DH tonight that I thought the stone might come out soon. He nodded and smiled. I was getting ready for bed and decided I better pee one last time. Thankfully, the doctor gave me a 'hat' to put on the potty. I peed out the most ginormous stone! I was always led to believe it would be eeny teeny. No sir! We are talking about a 1/4 inch and jagged. And yes, it hurt!!! Let's hope this is the last of my kidney stone issues. Taking this stone in to be analyzed for sure!

Oh Really?

As I was listening to Pandora this morning an ad popped up. The ad was for a certain birth control that labeled itself as 'pregnancy protection'. Are they protecting a pregnancy? Are they protecting you from a pregnancy? Let's call a spade a spade. This is ridiculous. Why not a pregnancy preventer? Why are ad execs afraid to call their product what it is? They don't need to make up a palatable name for something that is widely accepted. How sad that our culture sees new life as something you need to be protected from.

Oh My

I have two small pet peeves to share today! Number one is people who ride their bicycles on the wrong side of the street. A bicycle is considered a vehicle therefore needs to be ridden with traffic! NOT against!!!! It is dangerous to ride your bicycle the wrong way. I think pet peeve number two will not be voiced today. On a more exciting note...We are replacing our plastic containers with glass. Kmart has a sale on glass storage items. This is something we have been wanting to do for a while now but just never found a great sale. I would like to replace a few other plastic items also but have had a hard time finding a better solution.
We are all doing well. Recovered from our colds. Ready to start a new week of school. I am working on lesson plans today while my dad takes the girls fishing. Biscuit is taking a nap. I had better get busy!
