Okay, this will be short. I know this sounds crazy but I'm obsessing over finding Jonah a Jungle themed bathroom set (that I actually like) to do his bathroom upstairs. There used to be one at Target a long time ago (maybe when I was pregnant with Gabe?) that I LOVED, and I never got it. It was so adorable, and I would comment on it every time I went in there, but I'm an idiot and didn't get it. The soap dispenser was a lion with a little rubber fringe mane. The whole set was so cute. And then I FINALLY found it on Ebay on Tuesday and was the highest bidder for two days, and then my computer completely FROZE during the last five minutes of the auction, and the person I was bidding against, (insert bad name here), outbid me while I sat and screamed at my computer. I seriously could have cried. I know it's stupid, but I had looked for so long! I found the hooks and shower curtain so I've already bought those but have nothing to go with them. I have checked Target, Kohl's, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Linens and Things, JC Penny, IKEA, Amazon, a few random Internet sites, and Ebay, all to no avail. A couple of those places have safari/jungle type stuff, but either it's not what I need, not the right colors to match the shower curtain, or just isn't very cute. So anyways, I'm BUSY is all I'm saying.
I don't typically believe in "luck," good or bad, but this Ebay incident goes along with all this other minor but frustrating stuff that's happened this week:
- Calling and going back and forth with MY dentist to try to get Jonah some MI paste because HIS dentist doesn't believe in it, finally to find out that it IS safe for his age, all for them to give me the WRONG kind that can't be used on kids under six years old. So he still doesn't have MI Paste.
- Having to call our Home Health company THREE times for them to send me 24 inch feeding tubes TWICE when I needed 12 inch ones. The 12 inch ones finally came today. You know, after the fifth phone call.
- I ordered a Lightscoop through a camera store through Amazon, which I was totally excited about and waited for all week. It came today and it is the wrong one. I wanted the regular one and accidentally ordered the warming one. My walls are yellow. I don't need anything giving my photos a more yellow tint. I want to smack myself up the head for this one.
- I started getting a sore throat last night. It's been really sore today so I've been popping those zinc tablets you dissolve on your tongue and drinking Airborne all day. Yuck. (I am starting to feel better though.)
We did get to go to The Loop tonight for dinner...
AND I took Jonah to the grocery store and to Target this afternoon, and he was a complete angel all three places. (These two cups were some major entertainment tonight.)
So at least we got out a little today. AND in things-that-really-matter news, guess what's FRONT AND CENTER on CNN today? This article on the Bone Marrow Transplants and how it all started. It really is a GREAT article and it's so awesome that this is getting national attention.
But seriously, y'all, I am SO TICKED about that bathroom set. I don't know why I can't get over it. On that note, what should I blow my healthy-eating-and-working-out-more trend with? Oreo crisps, yogurt covered pretzels, fudge stripe cookies, or chocolate ice cream? (Yes, I bought all of them today AFTER the ebay incident. Don't judge me.)
