things that are not 'not stressful'

A root canal. Yes. A ROOT CANAL. It wasn't all that bad, but it certainly wasn't pleasant. I need to go back in about two weeks for a crown. The thing is until I was pregnant with my daughter, I had never had a cavity, had never had braces. I have now had two cavities, a tooth that was going bad and cracked, and a root canal. The trend is not good.

The Dark Knight. We still went to the movies last night and saw the latest Batman movie. I know we don't see many movies these days, but that may be one of the most stressful, high intensity movies ever made. After the opening few scenes I looked at my watch and realized it had been non stop for 30 minutes, and there was still 2 hours to go. My blood pressure had to be sky high after that movie. Good movie though, with only a few oh come on moments. And Heath Ledger was great, but am I the only one who felt he was playing Jim Ignatowski's crazier brother? There was definitely a Christopher Lloyd tinge to that. (to the nth degree, yes, but still there).

Having a 401k at AIG. what else is there to say. Can I roll it over? Haven't had time to check into my options, if any.

Cat vomit. Took him to the vet Monday, due for shots. A few years back he had an intestinal blockage, which cost $3k. Which I believe we may still be paying off. How did we know? Cat could not keep anything down. Yesterday he ate then threw up three times. No, that's not right. He ate three times then had prolonged vomiting fits all over the house, throwing up 4-6 times in a row. Today, so far, no vomit. Fingers crossed.

So, that's my week since the doctor told me to avoid stress. And that's on top of the usual - you know, the pregnancy, the toddler, the nanny, the money, the job, the husband, the in-laws, the parents, the roof, the car........What's not not stressing you out right now?

I'm not stressed about upheaval at my husband's job, the election, the economy, my friend/neighbor freaking out at me that the sky is falling every time I see her, and bills.

I have no idea what I'm going to do about daycare. None. Before I moved I was inching my way to the top of a place which had a year long waiting list. I loved them; they'd been written up. And now...Now I have no idea what I'm going to do.

Would you like to borrow my stasis pod?

We have a lot of trouble with movies- many are too violent or graphic for me- and ones that are seemingly innocuous end up having major kids themes. Lots of Anthony Bourdain in this house...
