My week, in review.

Hi all! This week has been jam packed for me. I have a bit of time, finally, so I thought I would bring you all up to speed.

Sunday: Attended a family birthday party in which no one in my family was having any fun. We all tried sticking it out, but after my crying son begged to leave 3 different times, my hubby pulled the plug on it and escorted us all to the car. This sucked. Who likes to leave a 5 year olds party on a wave of drama? Family behavior is a harsh reality, for both sides involved. Family and friends, at times, don't mix well together. Normally, I would choose blood family over friends. Lately, it seems that blood is not thicker than water, and that friends on both camps are becoming more like our family than our family is.

Monday: In past posts I have refered to my intuitive side. It runs in my family (mother, sister, nephew, son) and I use it extensively within my profession. Because of this ability, I tend to become overwhelmed and retreat into myself. Thankfully, a dear client told me about another of her practitioners who is very similar to me. I had the opportunity to meet him. What was to be an hour meeting ended up being 3 hours in which I allowed myself to be myself. I learned some very important things about myself which I had no clue of, or was ignoring. With this knowledge, I learned how to stop a person who has been psychically attacking me for over 5 years, and have begun the process of reclaiming my life from this vicious loser. This person really fucking sucks and needs to get on with his own life and stay the fuck out of mine. I left him for many reasons and HE needs to deal with it on other levels than fucking with me. For a taste of how he affected me in the past I refer you to this post.

Tuesday: Some of you may have noticed in the last posts comment field that Ms. BabyVog mysteriously left a comment announcing HER gender. Yes, the baby temporarily residing within me is a GIRL. She is doing very well, has ten fingers and toes and all her internal organs are functioning as they are supposed to be. Truthfully, her gender was no surprise to me.
Hubby has ramped up the cleaning and organizing to make way for baby Vog. The flat is looking the best it ever has.

Wednesday: Went for a much needed Rolfing session to unpinch a nerve in my back. This nerve was and still is, sort of, causing my right hand to cramp to the point I can't close it into a fist. I was glad that it is only a nerve and not MS or Parkinson's. I tend to work on a lot of clients with brain issues, which then causes me to freak out if something weird like this happens to me.

We also attended a school function for my son at his favorite place in the world, the Hands on Museum. There was lots of good food, and meeting more of the parents was fun. Watching the kids tear it up at this private party was a blast.

The State of Michigan decided that my 4 year old could get health insurance, so he went to his doctors for a much needed exam and shots. He flunked his eye test and now has to go to the eye doctor in December. That was the soonest they could get him in. Go figure. I was hoping he would have perfect vision like his dad. Oh well. I have been wearing glasses since I was 5 and am used to it. If he needs glasses, he needs them and that is something he can deal with. He is so cute, and I admit that that it kind of saddens me to have to accessorize him with specks.

Thursday: Went to the 12 Oaks Mall in Novi, MI so my kid could redeam a gift card at Build A Bear. The store was a nice experience, and son chose a nice snow leopard to stuff. He named it Cat 2, and he got a birth certificate for it. You can even dress your animal if you want. Lucky for me, my kid said no way to this since cats don't wear clothes. Geez, the clothes for these things cost more than clothes that I would buy for myself. As for the mall... ick. I suffered culture shock and had to leave as soon as the cat was completed.

I attended a great knitters group in the evening. I had bought this beautiful yarn awhile ago and attempted to make a lace scarf for my mom. I had never knit something this complicated and was pissed when I couldn't figure it out. I took it to this group, and a very nice lady showed me how to do it once. By the time I left, I had knit about 4 inches and made no mistakes. I am confident it'll be done before Christmas.

Today: Easy laid back morning. Spend time at a Myspace Group that was started for the punk community of my hometown of Flint, MI. I have reconnected with many people, and unfortunately have learned that a lot of my old friends have since died often horrific deaths. Thanks to Zeneric for connecting me with this group.
Hubby has just returned from the knee specialist wearing a brace. The doctor has told him there is nothing he can really do for his worn out knee. Now he must wait at least 25 years before he will be allowed to get a knee replacement. Poor guy. Living with him dealing with this pain is going to be a challenge.

That's about it. I will try to be a better poster, or at least, let you all know that I am alive and will post more when I have time. Have a good weekend, everyone. I plan on catching up on everyones blogs this weekend.

ps. Pie, I had a dream about you last night. You were the fire chief in my hometown. It was odd.

So glad that you are ok. When is the baby vog die? Too bad about your family gathering. I don't even speak to most of my family anymore. It's sad, but easier that way.
Glad you're back.

i really love the sound of a "hands on museum". kids need this sort of stimulus, not boring displays behind glass! hope the little male vog enjoyed it.
and don't worry about the eye test thing. he may just have been tired! happened with fyn. took him and he failed. took him a month or so later and he flew through it!

Sounds like hubby could play for the OP's with that knee. My hand goes like that too! I think it's with all the swollen fingers through goalkeeping - I hope. Glad yer doin' ok babe n lots of chillin' for baby vog ok! (Postin' yer some stuff next week)

Rolfing........does that involve wearing NHS glasses and asking 'can you tell what it is yet?'.......probably not.

PS I haven't forgotton about the 'thing'

Melanie said...

Busy Mama!!! And YAY! A babygirl! Love those girls. congrats!

Laura said...

Thanks for the update, I was wondering how you were.

Because of Frygirl, I'm very partial to baby girls. We're a team and have a great time terrorizing the males in the house. :)

Yeah, avoid those horrific deaths. I want to go peacefully in my sleep at an old age like my grandfather did. Not screaming and crying like the passengers in his car.

Umm, sorry, meant to ask when is baby vog DUE...

Camie Vog said...

Baby Vog will make her appearance somewhere around Feb. 28, 2007. I went two weeks early with my son, so who knows... I finally got the ultrasound pics scanned in and hope to get one of the nicer ones up soon.

You're keeping busy, huh?! Cat 2 is a cute name. It's a bit like what I call my cat tattoo: cattoo.

StripeySocks said...

Agh, that sucks about your hubby's knee. Owww.
And sorry about the unpleasant birthday party, that sounds... unpleasant.

And, I posted the information about the blue dye on me blog, so you can go look at that. It's a really fun color.
