#MirthMusicMon – Dancing Strawhats

25 May

Today’s Mirth and Music Monday has music, dancing, and they make both my daughter and me laugh every time.

Let’s see what you think.

I’m not sure why it makes me laugh, but it does. Slapstick normally turns me off. Perhaps it’s the fact that you can tell they’re too far apart for anyone to really have been smacked? Dunno.

This one is by the same crew, but it has some…bleeps in place of a few words.

This group certainly has some moves. I love it. 🙂

That’s it for me this week, folks.

#MirthMusicMon – Rhett & Link and Baby Updates

9 Feb

It’s another Monday as of 20 minutes ago.

How time flies when you’re feeling disoriented.

I need to make out a to do list. It’s been several days and I still have not transferred our (correct) answers from the ‘practice’ financial aid paperwork to the ‘let’s send this out’ paperwork. Hubby left it in my trust Friday…and now it’s early, early Monday morning and I haven’t even opened the folder.

Bad girl.

But, on to something that will make us laugh and hum.

Here we go!

Today I have found a delicious combo of Rhett & Link videos. If you don’t know who they are you are missing out on some seriously off the wall, geek/nerd music and humor.

Let’s try this one:

Now for some music:

.

Yah, only a few of those actually make my skin crawl. Mostly the gum tape, the backwards toilet paper, and the pills taken out of the blister pack out of order. Apparently I’m more of a numbers and patterns girl. Strange, considering math is my archenemy.

.

Wow. I just totally nodded off for a moment.

Baby Update!

(For those of you who have no idea what that means you may want to read this post as well to get the whole story.)

My baby girl is two weeks old now, and in one of the world’s foremost children’s hospitals’ Newborn Intensive Care Unit. This is where she has been since the day after her birth. This is where they diagnosed her with a small, but highly dangerous heart defect. The valve that allows blood to flow to her lungs was much too small, and the muscle of the chamber behind it (that pumped the blood through) was much too over developed in an effort to force blood through such a small opening.

They did the heart procedure a few days ago.

She is doing better this week. This morning when I got into her room she was silently crying away as the nurse changed a poopy diaper. I got her calmed down just as nurse was finishing up. The nurse turned around to deal with the dirty one and baby girl deposited more goo into the brand new one. She almost looked proud of herself. Until the nurse began changing her again, then she got really mad. lol

She was silently crying because of the intubator, which Cardiology requested she be weaned off Monday. So hopefully I will hear my baby squall the next time I witness a diaper change. That would be nice. 🙂

They have taken her off morphine and only administer Atavan (another painkiller) on an as needed basis. So now she is actually looking around, trying to make eye contact. Poor thing keeps smacking herself in the head/face with the arm that is all wrapped up because of an IV. She has a very mild black eye on that side because of the bumping and rubbing. She keeps trying to get this same hand into her mouth.

That’s another thing, she is still giving the cues that she wants to nurse, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too difficult for us to start nursing when the medical staff deem it advisable. Which will hopefully be soon after the tube is out of her windpipe. I don’t know, though.

They are currently feeding her breast milk through a nasal tube, and probably an IV solution of some sort (there are so many tubes and wires it’s hard to tell. I’ll have to try and remember to ask on my next visit). I was told today…Sunday…that they will increase her feeding amount because she is tolerating my milk very well. They were originally worried about over-stressing her body by distracting her blood into spending too much time in her guts. Not sure how that would affect her breathing and heart, but whatever.

I was informed that they are lowering her prostogadin again. That’s…something to do with her heart. I think it’s the stuff keeping open the lung by-pass tube in her heart that is supposed to close after birth. But with her heart recovering nicely and her lungs doing well they are feeling more confident that she could be ready for it to close. Hopefully her body is ready for these changes. Last time they tried some of this her lungs baulked and they had to reintubate her.

The staff was rather impressed by how much of a fight she put up over the process. Of course, it doesn’t seem that they see very many full term babies there. My little stinker looks almost like a giant (6 pounds, 11 ounces at birth) compared to her two roommates.

Hopefully having the tube out of her lungs will make it easier to get her transferred from the bed into my arms. With the pumping schedule I’m on and the amount of food my body is demanding now I only have about an hour with her at a time before I have to go put more milk into bottles and then eat, again. I don’t remember how long it took to get her into my arms shortly before her surgery, but it was a process requiring three people. O.O

And before you think I’m wasting away at her bed side please know that the place where I am staying has cool arrangements with or donations from local zoos, colleges, and philanthropists for free or majorly discounted entry into some pretty amazing places. Saturday I took a few hours with another family and toured the aviary here in town. I got pictures of some royally ugly birds. And a pair each of bald and golden eagles, and some parrots, etc.

Later that evening I attended my first piano concert. He played all three parts of the Moonlight sonata.

Oh, one of the cardiologists told me to expect Little One to be here for another two to four weeks as part of her heart comes back from insane bodybuilder status and gets out of it’s own way.

.

Oops, nodded off again.

I think it’s time to wrap this thing up and get some sleep.

I’m Hungry – a Poem

12 Sep

“I’m hungry”

She always seems to say.

“I’m hungry”

Can be heard throughout the day.

Grapes and cheese

Peanut butter on toast

Pork and beans

Sunday roast

There’s no escape

You know it’s coming

Her mouth agape

The words are forming

.

“I’m hungry!”

.

And just because I can…

(and because it makes me laugh even though it’s in French(?) )

I Have Lost My Black Book

23 Jul

One of the worst things that can happen to someone who uses many social media sites has happened to me: I have lost the black book that contains my list of passwords.

I don’t know where and I’m not sure how, but it’s gone.

The last place I remember holding it is when I decided it was too heavy to take with me on the roadtrip in early June. I took it out of the suitcase and… blank.

It will be found. It must. I am just waiting for that forehead smacking moment when I either wonder why I didn’t look in that particular place to begin with or ask myself what I was thinking ever putting it there.

Until that glorious day I will be limited on my range of social media movement.

And believe me, the moment the thing is found I will be making a copy of that info and putting it in my sock drawer!

.

And here’s a little something for a laugh:

Something Cute for May the 4th (be with you)

4 May

I laughed so hard when I saw this commercial for the first time. It still ranks as one of my favorites.

It’s just so cute! And so Star Wars. 🙂

I found this one just a few minutes ago and laughed my backside off. (p.s. this is totally why I should never be allowed to have any type of super power)

Have a Great Day

And May the 4th be with you!

MMM… Hercules and Some News

28 Apr

Welcome to Mirth and Music Monday.

Or as we call it on Twitter #MirthMusicMon.

.

I had planned on using something else today, but it lacked that little something. I don’t know exactly what, but it was definitely, eh, something.

After a little wandering around I came across this first song and did some laughing, then a suggested video was one of my all time favorite Disney songs and I just had to put these together.  🙂

I hope you enjoy the pair. 😀

Yes, I’ll admit it. I’m a romantic. *sigh* 😀

.

*            *            *

Now for the news.

I am sad to say that we will be losing the weekly attendance of the lovely ReGi McClain. She already had a crowded schedule and now something else has been added. Something had to give, and I have to agree with her, parenting is more important than a Monday giggle fest. She is also bowing out as the main caretaker of the linky. She asked if I would take on the privilege and I accepted.

So now I’m responsible for this fun thing we call Mirth and Music Monday. This should be interesting.  😉

.

That being said, we are always open to more people like you to play our weekly game with us. If you’re a blogger, or have been thinking about it, now is a great time for you to get in on the ground floor of this amazing opportunity.

Ahem… Yeah, I would stink as an infomercial personality.

Seriously, though, if you read these and think you could do it, go ahead and give it a try. We would love the company.  🙂

.

Rosebud, over and out.

.

Have a Great Week, Everyone!

MMM… Whistling Trash Bins & Musical Stairs

10 Feb

I don’t know about you, but last week was crazy.

This next week probably won’t give me a break, either.

So let’s take a few minutes and get a couple laughs in, shall we?

.

Those make me giggle every time.  😀

I hope you have a couple more laughs today.

.

If you would like to guarantee those extra laughs, head on over to ReGi McClain’s blog. She’s the originator of this fun Monday perk. I watched her first video twice! Haha!

If you would like to join in the fun all you need to do is come up with a funny video and a musical video, or have them both in one. Then go to her site and follow her simple directions. It only takes me a minute to link up.  Give it a try. You never know, you might like it.  🙂

Over The Shoulder Wizard – Flash Fiction

1 Feb

“What are you doing?”

“Watching you play.”

“Uh, why?”

“‘Cause it’s interesting.”

“Why don’t you get your own account and build your own character and play your own game?”

“Nah. It’s too complicated for me.”

“Then why have you been telling me what to do through this entire duel?”

“…Uh…”

“Thanks. Buh-bye.”

“Well that’s not very mumble mumble…

“Ah, silence.”

.

*            *            *

Backseat drivers, unwanted advice givers, and over the shoulder game players are annoying. No matter what the situation. It’s one thing to be interested in what someone is doing, and another to interfere with their thought process. You don’t know the whole situation. You don’t have the self-control to allow them to do things on their own.

grrr!

Sorry, but there’s only so much of this a girl can take before blowing a gasket somewhere. That somewhere is apparently here. Which really shows how much I trust y’all.  🙂 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNzXir6an2M

*            *            *

On another note, I had a wonderful afternoon out with one of my aunts. We went to lunch, did some shopping in second hand stores (where she bought a stack of books…seems to run in the family. lol), and then spent some time making my grandma laugh.

All in all a very good afternoon.

The evening was spent at a sister’s house at our Encourage Meant meeting. The first one since before Christmas. Only half the members could attend. *Boo*  Oh, well. We still had a good time and talked about how we had moved forward on our individual goals and even talked for a few moments about one that a couple of us are working on together.

Much fun and laughter was had by all.

Here’s hoping Friday is as productive and jolly.  🙂

Double Double Toil and Trouble and The Swedish Chef

26 Oct

Ha  Ha!

I found it.  😀

The song is called Double Trouble.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CKr2ULMMcA

.

And for something to laugh at it’s hard to go wrong with The Muppets.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Qj8PhxSnhg

.

“…A la bazookie”  Bahahahaha!

Ok, just let me watch that one more time.

.

Aaahahahaha!!! Yeah. I love the Swedish Chef.  😀

What are you doing for Halloween?

Will it involve a bazooka? 😉

MMM…Kristin Chenoweth’s The Girl in 14G

9 Sep

It’s Monday!

That day when we trade Mirth and Music Monday posts in an effort to soften the harsh return of another work week.

*            *            *

I have my mother to thank for turning me on to this song. Every time I see something with Kristin in it I’m amazed by her voice and tiny-ness. How does someone who’s 4′ 11″ have a set of lungs like that?!

Anyway…

This one made me laugh, and I hope you will also enjoy it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBJn4BHtqqY

If you are still in need of cheering up, or if you have time for more interesting videos check out ReGi McClain’s blog. Hers is the creative mind that came up with this idea. Plus, on the right hand side of her site you will see two googly eyed blue smiley faces; click on the top one and it will take you to the list of bloggers who are playing along.

Give it a try. You might find another blog or two to follow.

.

Now I’m going to make a pot of tea, grab a pear out of the fridge, and see about writing a piece of Steampunk flash fiction.

.

Happy Monday, y’all!
