Seven Quick Takes Friday

Our Hostess, Jen, is the AWESOME SAUCE! (And, honestly, how could someone who named her daughter Pamela Scholastica NOT be!) She created a totally great template and shared it with us, her readers. Rock on Jen!

This week Joey had his four year well child check-up. Because the poor kid is born toward the end of September, he will always get a shot at this check-up. His flu shot. I brought Will along as well to get his flu shot. Joey was very well behaved (a first at the doctor’s office) and cooperated fully with the PA who saw him and the nurse. William, on the other hand, proceeded to complain from the second we got into the parking lot that he wanted to go home even telling the nurse he knew how to drive. Whatever you say buddy…since Will did cooperate with is shot and Joey was so well behaved, as a reward they got lunch at McDonald’s and got to pick out some candy at the store afterward. What can I say, I feel bad for the kid who has to get a shot every time he goes to the doctor’s office.

Although you can’t tell from reading this, I just had to stop for 45 minutes and go pick up my child from school early for the very first time. She was crying inconsolably and when the teacher assistant scooped her up and took her to the rocking chair to rock her she noticed Shelby was rather warm. She calmed her in the rocking chair and took her to the office. Verdict: low grade fever and just feeling yucky. So Mommy picked her up…

I started the 100 workout this week thanks to Carmen at Mom to the Screaming Masses who pinned it on Pinterest and then shared on her blog. Two days straight, then I inadvertantly took a day off (it’s called a family emergency in this case) but my abs still hurt when I sneeze today and I hope to get some workout time in today (may be more complicated thanks to #3 occurring but I’m gonna try).

Speaking of Pinterest, I caved. I’m doing it. Do you hear that loud sucking sound? Yep, Kristen into another internet vortex.

And, finally, for two pictures that describe this week perfectly for me:

 and then there is this one

Yes I bought Cheesy Poofs because they were Cheesy Poofs (and how the h-e-double hockey sticks am I old enough that South Park is fifteen years old already?). And I think that picture totally describes me and Jesus on a regularly, daily, sometimes hourly basis. What can I say, I’m human, I’m a sinner, I’m doing my best, I beg for forgiveness.

  1. I love your take on that picture of Jesus. Not sure that’s what the sculptor had in mind but it sure looks right to me! 🙂

    As for shots in a well-child checkup…consider yourself lucky you don’t have to do two appointments! Of course, who am I to talk? I only take the kids in when I absolutely have to. I loathe well-child visits. That came on during the years I was having 5 therapy visits a week for Julianna, and then the doctors were asking developmental questions. I was like, “Hello. You’re a doctor, not a developmental expert. Stick to medicine.” 🙂

  3. Great Jesus picture! I can totally relate to you, I think He does a *facepalm* everyday for me. Everyone keeps writing about Pinterest, I think I need to avoid it just for that reason! Great blog, nice to ‘meet’ you.

    • Pinterest is a website where you basically set up virtual bulletin boards. You download a “pin” for your browser type and when you see something you like on the web, you “pin it” to the corresponding board. For example “Surfers Healing” is pinned to my Autism Awareness board. You can also follow other people’s boards and see what they are interested in and get ideas for new things yourself…it’s actually quite addicting.
