on busting a move...

'my

I wanted to do an actual post involving one of the following things:

  1. The fact that I'm borderline going to shove a Q-tip into my eardrum to see if it will help with the fact that I still can't completely hear out of my right ear due to this cold. I want to go to the doctor, but they are silly, and I know they'll look at me for about fifteen seconds and tell me that it's just "something that must run it's course." And I'll be bitter because of it. And still sick. And may want to flick my doctor in the eyeball with my finger.
  2. The fact that as of yesterday, I have the worst baby fever in all of humanity, and when I told Jay about it, he responded with the same look of judgement he gave me when he caught me washing down Advil (hey, I still have a sore throat) with a bottle of beer (hey, it was a long day at work). Needless to say, he's not ready to jump on the baby fever train with me. And I guess that's okay, because at least it keeps me grounded.
  3. The fact that I'm already wondering when my next vacation is, even though I just got back from our road trip.
  4. The fact that I have discovered a new found love of asparagus, 80's music (well, mostly "Hungry Eyes" by Patrick Swayze, and that isn't exactly a new found love, considering I've danced in my car every time it's come on my iPod in the last three years) and browsing vintage shops.
  5. The fact that I'm almost ready to start running/jogging/some-sort-of-exercising again on a regular basis. I think.

But, instead, I thought I'd just post a photo that captures my attempt at doing "the running man" at an 80's party I went to over the weekend, and call it a day. You're welcome.

  2. Dancing is not my forte...I normally stick to the classic moves of "Throwing Dice" and "The Sprinkler"

  3. any night involving doing the running man = awesomeness.

    but seriously, about your ear, go to the doctor and they will fix it. i had the same thing happen to me when i was 16 and my doctor attached some magical contraption to my ear and i was able to hear again. i wanted to kiss him.

  4. Cute picture!

    I had a similar problem with my ear last winter and I ended up seeing a doctor after attempting to wait it our for almost a month. He ended up prescribing antibiotics and it did the trick (although if yours is from a cold, that won't do any good). It might be worth it to have it checked out anyway, though.

    If its any consolation, I always want babies of my own after spending time with newborns. After seeing the gorgeous children from your road trip photos, I don't blame you!

    I also love asparagus and vintage shops! Last week I discovered a vintage dress shop a few towns over and have been doing my best to avoid going in there because I know the result won't be good for my bank account.

  7. The running man is hard. I danced for around 8 years and I still don't feel like I have a good grasp on it.

    I hope your ear feels better soon!

  9. Leave it to you to make your get-up for an 80's party look absolutely adorable. I looked at your top and thought, "DAMN THAT IS CUTE!"

    Car dancing is one of my favorite past-times, and I hope you feel better!

  16. oooo love vintage shops!

    they do make ear wax removal drops if thats the case. otherwise a antihistimine for the cold might work.

  17. I would go to the doctor if I were you. I went to the university health services here and they are notorious for doing next to nothing for cold-related things but when my ear was plugged for a good month or so I went in and they told me I needed to get my ear irrigated. Basically they squirted water into my ear to get the excess earwax out. It wasn't too unpleasant of an experience.

    It took about 2-3 days until I could hear better out of my ear.

  21. Ha isn't it great to be grounded by someone.

  22. Haa your such a cutie! That picture is just precious. I hope your feeling better though.
    As for the baby fever it must be tough to have to wait it out. Hopefully one!!

  23. Considering the fact that I basically channel my inner childhood any chance I get? I was totally excited when I saw your outfit. I was like "Nah!Uh! That outfit is awesome! Why can't I dress like that on a daily basis?!" And then I got to the end of the post, and realized you were at a themed party. Imagine my disappointment. HAHA I'm kidding. Only not really. Anyways, you are the epitome of awesomeness. I wanna be you when I grow up. Here's to hoping your ear gets better.

  24. That photo is adorable! Looks like the party was a hit!

    The whole Hungry Eyes thing reminds me of this DVD I found at Best Buy. We sell this Dirty Dancing workout video, which teaches you dance moves to all of the hit DD songs! It looks like so much fun!!

  25. Love the pic!

    And I totally feel you about the baby fever. I have it...hubs...not so much. As you...I am grounded!

  26. Looks like you guys had a great trip! And I get baby fever whenever we have to do a maternity or newborn session. OMG. Mr. Beagle just laughs at me.

  27. I think this picture totally captures a moment of "please come make babies with me while we listen to Hungry Eyes, do crunches, and use q-tips."

  28. So I started reading Dooce's book and it has squashed any baby fever that was remotely hidden in my bones. I'm about halfway through, and just hearing about Leta screaming ALL DAY LONG makes me want to triple my birth control lol. Though I'm afraid that once I get towards the end of the book, she'll be like oh yeah even though it was horrible it's so wonderful now and the best thing of my life. And THAT is not what I need to hear. lol.

    Also a positive part of accepting my baby-less years has been my ability to act as selfish as I want and spend as much as I please lol. I'm living it up while I can
