It’s FRIDAY! Picture this mama doing the happy dance. Tonight brings a night out with ShaNaNa, and by 8am this morning we were already in discussion about what to wear, who is driving, and should we call my mom to drive us home. Hi! My name is QTMama, I am 35 and my mom comes to pick me up when I’ve had too much to drink. Wait. Now wait … ok, upon further thought? The only times I’ve called my mom to come get US is when I’ve been with ShaNaNa. Hmm … let me rephrase. Hi! Our names are ShaNaNa and QTMama, we are in our mid-thirties and my mom comes to get us when we’ve had too much to drink!
Last night brought much texting and talking with the Irishman. He is in the process of learning new songs and somehow, I was roped into listening to him practice while on the phone. HAHA like I minded. Anyway, I was smiling, he really does do a nice job. And, you all know how I feel about the Irish accent. So I’m listening to him sing and smiling, and it brought back a funny memory from one of my trips there. He and I were in a CVS, me looking for makeup of some kind, him hanging around patiently waiting for me while I was browsing. At one point I looked over to see him staring intently at the back of a bottle he was holding, so I wandered over to see what was up. He had a bottle of some sort of men’s body wash in his hands, reading the back of it. I said “What’s up buttercup?” and he looked at me and said “You see this? If I use this body wash, I will have not one, but two chicks!” I peered over his shoulder to see the bottle – and sure enough, on the back, right there, it shows a shadow of a man, and on each arm? A chick. I looked at Irishman and started laughing and said “Well, we simply MUST buy this then!”
So for anyone squeamish, here is where you should stop reading, because I’m going to be sharing some definite TMI information here. In an attempt to make it look like I’ve NOT cut someones jugular every month, my doctor has put me on some birth control. Yup, I’m the proud new owner of the NuvaRing, or as I like to call it, The Va Jay Jay Ring. For those not in the know, The Va Jay Jay Ring is a flexible vaginal ring that you insert as a means of birth control. <grin> Truth be told, I was somewhat mortified when I first received it. I think, in my own head, I thought it’d be the size of a condom. Imagine my horror when I picked up the sample from the Doctor and the thing was the size of a damned hula hoop!! How the HELL would this work? Okay perhaps that is an exaggeration but it’s definitely bigger than a condom. So after reading the directions, all you do is squeeze the thing and well, put it in. Stick it up there. You then leave it up there for 3 weeks, pull it out, have your period for a week and then stick a new one up there for another 3 weeks and so on. So far, I can’t feel it, I have no clue it’s even there. I had some irrational fear of it making me burn when I pee (where this came from I have no idea) but that hasn’t happened yet either. So keep your fingers crossed – it’d be nice to not have a period every month where it looks like I slaughtered a cow. Now isn’t THAT a visual you’ve always wanted?
Happy weekend kiddies. *hugs*
