I got my eyebrows waxed at the jcpenney beauty salon this morning. After I got out of the doctor's office. I knew I had strep. They tested for strep. My throat hadn't even been hurting anymore since I'd been swallowing garlic cloves but I decided to get checked anyway. Strep. I was feeling fragile and pissy since I had to repeat the date of my last period complete with Reader's Digest version of the true medical drama that's been our life around here lately. ("Last period?" "November 20th...but I had a blighted ovum...I found out on Friday...they did an ultrasound. My throat started hurting after that.") So I decided I'd get my eyebrows "cleaned up" with the JC Penney gift card that's been NOT burning a hole in my pocket since Hannukah. I wish I had the cable that goes to the camera I'm borrowing so I could get ya'lls input. I think that the beautician did them up a little too skinny. I'm not horrified. They'll grow out nice.

I also took pictures of my almost boobcoveringly long hair but they are also trapped in the camera. I have talked myself out of red. I am very peachytoned for red, I think. I am just giving myself some time to think on red since I am apparently now attached to my long hair and just shaving it off and starting over isn't an appealing offer at this time. I want to do something though. I got my first gray hair a week ago and then another popped up a few days later. I was trying to think of it as a white blond highlight but J. was gleefully disagreeing. He's had gray hairs for a long time now.

I have a flash drive that I got from work and I thought I could hook that into the camera and then hook the flash drive into the computer but there are no obvious flash drivey outlets in the camera.

I was so zonked and cranky from my early morning activities yesterday that I was not as nice as I wanted to be to J's best friend Val who we never see. She came by to visit and all I wanted to do was konk out with Ike so I did. She left sunflowers at the door today. I cried a little.

Um. I stopped bleeding today. That is a relief. Tonight, I am hoping to somehow seduce Jeremy without giving him the strep.

Ohhhhh woe is me. I still have my fucking yeast infection. I don't know if it's doing a last hurrah kind of thing or what. I did the garlic, oral and buki-luki. I have been taking acidophilus like crrazy. Water? Tons. Chamomile tea too since I heard that helps. I think all of it does help but not for long. I want to say fuck this shit and get some Monistat but I am going to call doctorly/midwife types tommorow to get their opinion. I may even go in somewhere (I've read you should get checked out if you aren't a 100 percent it's yeast and I was but what the hell do I know?) since I have only had yeast infections like two or three times before in my whole life and they always go away when I take this Whole Foods-y pill called Yeast Cleanse or something. I would take it again but it's got dong quai in addition to tea tree oil, a buttload of garlic and acidophilus and grapefruit seed extract and more. Oh, and I've been trying to avoid sugar and doing pretty well at it too.

Jeremy thinks this is a very serious problem since he can't get no lovin'. My taint is in sad shape so there is just no way. It makes me very sad.

The first day of Hannukah (I gave Ike his big red shiny bike this morning like the sell-out I am) was actually really great. We went over to the crazy in-laws at night where I ate a lot of red meat and J's brother apparently cornered him and guessed I was pregnant because I wasn't drinking like a fish!

I am all stingy and sore down there. Fuuuuuuck.


I loved seeing everyone's Christmas pics and entries! I did have a pretty damn good day other than the crotch pain.

Norlando is what Ike calls Orlando. Now we are back home.

Ike and I did the trip ourselves. J. is still achey (STILL!) from the VR so he opted to stay home and rest. I'm trying not to freak out about the fact that he is still hurting. I don't like to think about how we ruined everything.

My mom and Ron are fine. We had a great time hanging out with Wes and Mabel. Ike was totally adored. We even got to have breakfast with Danielle and her sister who I haven't seen in years AND Dani's nephew who I was very close to forever ago (like, when he was 3 and now he is 16). Trevor is just beyond huge but, of course, still looks the same and he just went ape over Ike. They hit it off. Trevor claims not to remember me but I shook that off and ragged on him for all of his goofy little-kid behaviors anyway.

We went out for great conch chowder and beer. Ike had fries. I'm a little drunk and it's way early yet. I will try not to crash too too early.

From the Broward Women's Emergency Fund:

A 12-y-o child was violently raped in March. Her pregnancy was not
discovered until her mother took her to see a doctor for an
unrelated problem. At the time (sometime last week, I believe), she
was estimated to be 19-20 weeks pregnant and referred to Dr..
Benjamin. The child’s mother also filed a police report and a
detective was summoned to Dr. Benjamin’s office on Friday to take
evidence for the prosecution. Turns out the girl was 24 weeks
pregnant at the time and needed to be started that day or it would
be too late. However, the detective, opposed to abortion, was
abusive to the mother and to personnel in the Dr’s office.
Complaints to supervisors fell on deaf ears. Dr. B. was so
intimidated by the Broward police that he refused to take care of
the girl. It is now 4 days later. She can have her procedure at the
Atlanta Surgery Center. They will charge $2678 for the procedure.
But the mother needs money for travel and lodging as well. We have
no other clinic in Florida that will do this late procedure.

How much can you pledge? Time is very much of the essence here.
Clarice Pollack is the Founder and President of Broware Women's
Emergency Fund. Please let us know how we can count on you as soon
as possible. Checks can be made out to BWEF and mailed to 1965 S
Ocean Drive, Apt 17S, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009. BWEF is a 501(c)3
organization.

Thanks so much.

I just got home from our trip to Texas and I saw all the beautiful pictures of M! I was so ready to say welcome I from a long-ago name-thread but M was on our list too! Congrats, congrats!!

Oh no no no no.

Remember at the reading? When C. was running away from A. and everyone was so tired and you could just feel waves of exhaustion off the crowd and then A. scooped C. up and put him in the sling. He struggled against it for awhile and then moved close to her again. It was one of the those times when you see parenting and file it away for hopefully later use. She was an idol of mine.

And then later that night, my baby was so jet-lagged from a cross country trip. She was one of the women who saved me, as I was crying down the hotel hall with my screaming-tired 5 month old. She gave me some of her beer, and took me back to the room where I could find some community.

I don't know what happened. When I read about how she was gone, jesus just a few minutes ago...I am crying and Jeremy wants to know whats wrong, who died? And I had to explain, it was Alli and then of course, talk on and on about who Ali was to me and so many other people.

I am so sorry for her family, loved ones, her circle of friends.

I don't know what else to say.
