Why I Need to See the Doctor (Unfortunately, Dr. House Doesn't Count)

Violet and I need to get flu shots. So that we don't contract the flu and inadvertently kill my grandfather early. Oh, the fun never stops.

On a somewhat related note, in addition to watching "House, M.D." like a junkie on the USA network, I have been watching the episodes in order starting with season one (thank you, Netflix). And I have decided that my very least favorite medical word is necrosis.

Not So Itsy Bitsy Anymore

We decided to have a local pest control company come out to do a one-time spider barrier treatment. Unfortunately, the gentleman who treated the house said there was nothing he could do about the largest of the spiders. Instead, we have been forced to invite him inside, and treat him as one of our own.

Welcome home, Stan.

Potty Prayers Answered

It worked!!! HALLELUJAH!

Praying to the Porcelain God(s)

In a last ditch attempt to have this child potty trained before college, I’ve put her in training pants. I told her not to pee in them, and to tell Mommy when she needs to use the potty. Every time I ask if she has to go potty, I get an excuse. “I’m going upstairs,” she replies, or “I’m too busy.” When she was in diapers, she could not wait to (at least) complete the routine, even though number one and two didn’t factor into the equation. Now, she won’t even go near the toilet. I know that her training pants are full of pee right now, but she’s refusing to let me change them as well. And if I make any demands that she considers unreasonable, I will be rewarded with a slapping and screaming fit. HELP ME, OH YEA POTTY GODS.
