Someday I'll look back on this and laugh. But not today.

Did you know that chiropractors can greatly relieve cold symptoms with a few spinal adjustments??? For BABIES??!! I held Lance, and the Doc gently worked the muscles around Lance's spine and also some in his neck, effectively allowing all the "gunk" to drain away. Lance was much better afterwards! I have not had to give him any more cold medicine. His nose is still a little drippy and he still coughs now and then, but he's improved immensely since his adjustment.
I wanted to share all of this with you because not a lot of people would consider chiropractic care for things like colds and flus. I didn't know about it myself until I met my chiropractor at my church. I started going there because my back and hips got all torn up after having Lance. In this last year of going there, I haven't been sick once. At the first sign of a cold or sinus infection or whatever, I make an appointment, the Doc works his magic, and I am better.
I wish more people knew about this. My primary care doctor never suggested chiropractic care. I guess some people are a little leery of "alternative medicine" but if it works, I say go for it!
I found this website that answers some basic questions about chiropractic care. Let me know what you all think!

Yes I am a geek.
But I'm a geek with a cool shirt.

I'm 26 today.
Birthdays are fun!!
Lance is sleeping now, so I'm going to go make myself a cup of coffee and watch TV. Because I can. Because it's my birthday.

On the brighter side, once he gets a few more teeth, I can start giving him more and more real food. I'm sure his digestive system is ready for him to eat more than he does, he just doesn't have the teeth for it! Although his gums are awfully strong!
Gotta run. Having guests over in a little while. Have a lovely day!

I was so good for awhile! Lance and I would take nice long stroller walks in the morning, and during his morning nap I would vigorously do the housework that needed doing, and I had tons of energy. Then I got sick for a couple days, broke the pattern, and now I sit around in my PJs all morning until he goes down for his morning nap, then I go back to bed, and inevitably when we wake up, I feel worse than I did before. By then, the day is half gone. I'm so lazy!
I need some motivation. Help!

It's been a pleasant morning.
(I'll post a picture of the chair later on. I have to send Hubby back to the church to go pick it up because the chair wouldn't fit in my teeny tiny car!)

Why have we not discussed it before? Why are we afraid to admit it?
Hi, my name is Guinevere.
I'm a Trekkie.
I don't think there's a 12-step program for us. We just need to be woman enough to admit that we have a problem!
Maybe it's not so much of a problem.
So I get excited by things like temporal anomalies and stellar phenomenon. Yes, I wish someone would hurry up and develop transporter technology. And a holodeck! Apparently you do too!
Tee hee. Glad to know I'm not alone!
Live long, and prosper.

I can't believe it's that time again! In fact, I almost missed it! The Ultimate Blog Party 2008!!
I do believe that I met most of my regular readers at last year's party. Wasn't it fun!!
I like to cook and to take pictures. I sing whenever I can, whether or not anyone is listening. I like to watch reruns of Star Trek Voyager. (I guess I'm still a big dork.)
Now tell me about yourself! I hope we can be friends!
Two nights ago, we switched. Hubby did the bath, and I put Lance to bed.
He has never done this before. He will say "Daddy," but this was the first time he called Daddy. It was a call to be rescued from the evil Mom-Lady. "Daaaa-ddyyyyyyyyy.....Daaaaaaa-ddyyyyyyyy."
Just heartbreaking I tell you. Lance was very unhappy that Mommy was the one to put him to bed.
After a couple minutes though, he quieted down and settled himself to sleep.

3. He can point to various body parts. He can show you his nose, his ears, his mouth, his tummy, and his head. Oh, and when he shows you his mouth, he opens wide and says "Ahhhhh" a la dentist visit.
4. He can get himself up and down the stairs with minimal assistance! This is important because we live on the second floor, and it was getting very hard to try to carry him in one arm and the diaper bag and my purse and anything else that needed transporting in the other. Getting up the stairs after a grocery shopping trip was particularly anxiety-ridden. He still needs to hold my hand, and it takes forever, but he can manage the stairs now. Yippee!
5. He likes curry. I was shocked. Hubby made a South African dinner for us a few nights ago, a dish called "bobotie" which is heavily seasoned. We gave a little bit to Lance to try, and he gobbled the stuff up! Go figure. (He won't touch plain old potatoes. The kid likes his food to have flavor!)
This photo was not from the curry dish. This was from lunch today, some left over pasta and meat sauce. My little spaghetti-face!
I am so proud of my little boy. *smug grin*

(No, Anne and Amber, the ants did not "et" me. We have called a cease-fire. Currently regrouping!)
Here is a list of recent google searches that have led people to my blog.
cake stuck to pan crumbled recipe
pickles and ice cream baby shower theme
2 cm thin cervix blogspot
sipping pina coladas
things that go with easter
I never cease to be amused by such things.
Must get back to work. Things should quiet down once we get settled into the new house. I'll be popping by as often as I can!!!
