Confessions of the day...

I ordered $21 worth of girl scout cookies from the daughter of a teacher at school. If you are not an avid girl scout cookie purchaser, then you don't know how many boxes that is. If you are and you do know, don't judge me. A few boxes are for Seth. I also felt a huge sigh of relief when I read today that the cookies with the peanut butter are NOT contaminated. I just really wish I had them right now.

I am watching Oprah and Jenny McCarthy is on talking about her latest book "Mother Warriors". Amid the talk of vaccinations and autism (which totally interests me), they have a mother on as an example of a mother warrior. This woman had a baby and after giving birth she suddenly got a flesh eating bacteria and had to have her arms and legs amputated. My confession is that I had to change the channel during that portion of the show because it thoroughly stressed me out. It's supposed to be inspiring and hopeful and I am now watching Divorce Court (nothing else is on) until I can go back to Oprah. This makes me feel guilty but I can't help it. SIDE NOTE: Jim Carrey is way cooler to me when he is serious.

I never truly understood things like adverbs or states of matter until I became a second grade teacher. I often wonder how much smarter I would become if I started teaching a higher grade level.


  1. OMG I watched that Oprah when it originally aired and then the next day found out I was going to have a C-section and was totally freaked out.

  2. Hey - this is being heralded as the "end-all, be-all" article on vaccinations and autism, et al. There have been MOUNTAINS of scientific data presented in various forms on the topic but this article does a great job of amassing the info and explaining it in an accessible, easy-to-follow (albeit, long) way.

    In summary: Jenny McCarthy is very wrong and is a huge danger to children's health.

    Just thought I'd pass it along since you mentioned it was a topic that interested you. It was one Angie and I did a lot of researching on too.
