My Mother's Day Gift

Aziz bought two leather couches with a rocker recliner for $1200. We have been waiting to do this purchase for two years. Our couches we have now are trashed. Aron loves to use our couches as his napkin to wipe off yogurt off of his chin.

Aziz and I were discussing names for the baby. We have completely different tastes. I like classic names, he likes exotic ethnic names. One name he suggested was Khan. I played a Youtube video playing Captain Kirk screaming "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!" so loud the entire planet and the universe heard it. Aziz didn't get it of course. I saw an Indian song called "My Name is Khan" and decided to play it. My no name baby began to kick a lot and move around. I guess he likes Indian music. (Or he could equally hate it and was kicking me to shut it off.)

I ended the night watching Doctor Who with the older kids. It was a fun episode with pirates. I had a difficult time understand Matt Smith. Usually I understand him fine, but this time he lost me. I had to put on Closed Captioning. The kids learned a little about pirates and about CPR. During commercial breaks, I read some study questions for the SOL to Viki. She did know that a hemisphere means a half of a sphere.

Aron put himself to bed around 8PM. I didn't even know he went to bed. He has a fever again. I hope his ear infection did not come back.  I am trying not to lose it! I get real irritable and mean my last trimester. My husband is already hearing and is learning not to take it personally. He also is learning not to mention his family right now to me.

I hope I get some sleep tonight. I have been going to the bathroom like normal today so that is a real relief.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…
