What is it this time?

I’m beginning to dread daytime phone calls from kat’s lil sis, especially when she begins them with, “So here’s something else to add to the prayer list.” This time, she’s been diagnosed with low-lying placenta (which as she pointed out, could be advantageous if it helps keep the baby in her teeny, tiny cervix!)

This time, lil sis isn’t so worried– it means she’s going to get some extra ultrasounds and the docs are going to keep an eye on things, but expect everything to improve as time goes on.

Of course, I pointed out some of the bright sides of the situation and then asked, “Can I put this on the blog?” Lil sis said yes, but also wants me to point out that these are actually things that have been diagnosed by real doctors and not just her own neuroses (“ooh, my cervix feels small today… and the placenta is awfully low-lying”). And she wants to know if all (three) of our readers are sick of hearing about her girly bits (I for one could go for having just one phone conversation with her that doesn’t include the word “vaginal,” but that’s just me…)

In an effort to keep this from turning into a mommy blog, I will be dragging SJ out to the bars later this week and we will get hammered, hook up with random men and– if SJ’s lucky– wake up together in bed without pants on. Just for you, dear readers, just for you…

LOL! I for one have no problems reading about lil' sis's vaginal - opps I mean pregnancy/girly bits stuff! It will definitely make for interesting conversation if I ever get to meet her...

And I hear the caddy ranch is a good place for hooking up with random men. Not that I would have any experience with that of course... LOL

oh, KAT, been there, done that!

i'm taking a by on country line dancing this week, what with my inability to stand on my own two feet without incident and all.


however, i could *absolutely* need a drink this week, so if you're up for it, KAT, and maybe if we can convince SRG and Kara to come along.... can we say "hot wings with forks?"

Bet you can't party like a rock star until 4:30am like me! Yes, okay, I am proud of myself, it doesn't happen often.

Anyway, I don't mind hearing about your sisters vagina if that is what you want to talk about, but I have actually squeezed a melon out of mine so I know what your sis is in for!! Without an epidural I might add.

Hi, just blog hopping and stopped by for a visit. Vagina's, going to bars and waking up naked - sounds like an interesting blog to me. I'll have to stop back by.
