Joining Jen because it's Friday. Holla! (Do people still say Holla? I'm not giving it up.)

My husband pointed me towards the article about this idiot. I've never shopped at Abercrombie & Fitch before and this just validates my decision. What an idiot. Did I mention he is an idiot?
Speaking of idiots, the other night I made a lentil veggie soup and diced up a jalapeno pepper to put in it. After about two hours, I was getting ready for bed and went to take out my contacts. I reached into my eye with my jalapeno-fingers-even-though-I-must-have-washed-my-hands-three-times-since and my eyeball was on FIRE! I started yelling to Phil that I needed to pull my eyeball out and to hurry up and google something because the burning wouldn't stop!
I was pouring saline solution in my eyeball which was a temporary pain relief until I blinked and then the fire started again. It was so so so bad! Phil googled that I was supposed to get a shot glass of whole milk and put my eyeball in it. I was like "No way am I putting milk in my eye!" but the burning was so intense that I was like "Get the milk already!!!" He put it in a medicine dropper and after the first drop it was almost instant relief. A couple more drops and the burning was gone. Thank God!
The whole scenario left me wondering...what did people do before they had the internet? If we didn't have access to google at 10 pm at night, would I have driven to the hospital? Would I have woken up friends and family members with phone calls asking what to do? Maybe I just would have known what to do because I would be forced to actually store more info in my brain?
Then the next morning, I was putting in my NEW contacts (I threw the peppery ones away) and I could still feel a little burn. How long does jalapeno juice stick on your skin? And why would anybody cook with them?
So I got one contact in, and then kind of tried to throw the other one in my eye without touching it (not easy) and then left for work. It was a rainy morning, so my windshield was a little foggy, but when I got to work, everything still looked a little foggy. Hmmmm, I went to the bathroom to look at my eyes and see if they were melting from the jalapeno juice, but what I saw was that I only had one contact in. Apparently trying to throw in a contact without using your thumb and pointer finger isn't a very accurate way to place a contact on your eyeball. I had to go home to put on glasses and I found that missing contact sticking to one of the drawers at my bathroom counter. Death of another contact.
Okay, enough eye drama. Moving on.
I'm a big fan of moms having a gym membership. Especially one with a daycare to watch the kids. Every Thursday night, I take the kids to my kickboxing class while Phil is babysitting my niece and nephew. But last night was raining and thundering and lightening so I decided just to stay home and do an exercise video while the kids were watching their nightly TV show. Guess who would rather exercise with me than watch Eloise?

Needless to say I did a whole lot more playing with Xander than working out with Jillian. That gym membership? Priceless!
Today I am going to the Mother's Day Tea with my favorite girl in the whole wide world! I can't wait!
7) Happy Mother's Day to all you moms and want-to-be moms out there. I hope you get a whole weekend full of pampering :)
