My Give a Damn's Busted

As I sit in my bed, clothed in my robe and underwear (because it's actually 40 degrees in Texas and I'm cold), eating Natural White Cheese Cheeto Cheese Puffs, I realize that I officially do not care. I.Do.Not.Care.

I do not care that mom and I ate a full meal at 4:30pm after the appt. with Dr. B., and on the way home, at 5:30 pm, I went to Bill Miller's BBQ and ordered another full meal complete with 2 orders of hash browns, extra sauce, AND brownies.

I do not care that my body is going into complete and udder What The Hell Kind of Crap Are You Eating Now? mode. If it sounds good, I eat it, regardless of whether I would ever let it touch my mouth on a non-pregnant day.

I do not care that I have zero desire to walk down the stairs and out into the cold garage to get two rolls of toilet paper to replace the two empty rolls upstairs. In fact, my give a damn is so busted that I have a pee plan sans toilet paper in place for this evening.

I do not care that crap is stacked up on my side of the bed and cracker crumbs on the floor will soon be attracting a full blown platoon of ants.

I do not care that my afternoons, evenings, and nights involve a path from my garage directly to my bed, not to be traveled again until morning.

I do not care that my teeth are not being brushed for 2 minutes morning and night. A toothbrush and toothpaste are a sure fire combo for gagging and possibly puking. So, bring on the halitosis and funk.

And I certainly do not care that I am about to tell kindergarten parents that I am going to be out for 2 weeks after the cerclage. In fact, I welcome it. Look forward to it. Let's get the show on the road.

Frogger is measuring beautifully, the nuchal translucency test came back great, and things are looking brighter. We're on for the cerclage next week. Put me out, sew me shut and let's move forward, because my give a damn's busted.

Yeah, what was up with our weather today? Yesterday was BEAUTIFUL and 90. Today I wake up to rain and 48 degrees!

Hey girl--EAT WHAT YOU WANT. I love your attitude, I seriously do. And a suggestion about the toilet paper--just use kleenex. It works.

Glad Frogger is doing so beautifully!

What exactly is your "pee plan sans toilet paper"? I'm curious to know what exactly you will use.

The Nanny says to use Kleenex, that's all my husband uses. No TP for him. It can get expensive though. Just send your hubby downstairs to get it for you.

BTW, the weather was great today :)

You crack me up! You really have a way with words! This is so not like you, my disciplined friend, but I'm very glad to hear it! You've gotta let some things go, and it sounds like you are doing a magnificient job of it! ;) I'm so, so happy for you and your babe and your Frogger!

I hope it's ok that I laughed out loud through most of this. I have SO been there. Luckily, it won't last forever.

Oh...and try an electric toothbrush. While the funk and halitosis SOUND ok...after a while it can get pretty gross. :o)

I think you deserve the break.

Enjoy the brownies!

You go girl!! And if I didn't have kids to watch my mouth around, I would start saying that my "give a damn is busted" all the time! I love that!!

niobe said...

Okay. But why don't you tell us what you really think?

You know I'm just kidding. Go you!

I'm curious to hear more about the pee-plan... I'm down to 1 roll and it's raining here and just really don't feel to go shopping.

Perhaps you could teach me a thing or two.

Enjoy the munchies!
