Feeling Old

I had that lovely annual check-up we all look forward to experiencing each and every year today. The doctor asked if I was having any issues and all of a sudden, I really felt old.

Me: "Well yes doctor, I'm tired all of the time."
Dr: "Maybe it's the three-year old."
Me: "Well, true, but I'm paranoid it's my thyroid. I'm hoping I have thyroid issues and that's why I can't lose weight."
Dr: "Really? Maybe it's because you're not exercising as much as you should be."

Me: "I pee on myself all of the time. I'm trying to start running and I can't do it."
Dr: "That's not good...hmmm" as he types on the computer and reads his comments out loud, "...causing patient challenges with daily exercise routine. The insurance guys will like that."

Dr: "You say you deal with depression and anxiety."
Me: "Yes, I take medicine and it helps a lot."
Dr: "Exercise helps that too."

So basically I'm tired, depressed, anxious and overweight because I can't have a daily exercise routine because I pee on myself. Maybe if I just buy some Depends I'll be rested, happy, calm and skinny.

Until next time doc.


  1. Gee, it must be epidemic b/c I think I have that problem too - except for the peeing thing! LOL! It always comes down to exercise, doesn't it?

  2. Yes, easy diagnosis every time: You need to exercise more ;-)

  3. Every single Dr always says exercise helps everything. And i know it helps a lot but not EVERYTHING!!!

  4. Did the doctor check your thyroid? Have you thought about seeing another doctor? I have a slow thyroid, and it took forever for me to be diagnosed. I still struggle with the symptoms of being tired and it being hard to lose weight, but it is getting better. I hope you feel better soon, and don't be afraid to get a second opinion if you don't like what the doctor said!

  5. I take pills for depression(mild)and anxiety....but at my age who doesn't. As for more exercise, ya find the time...And my doctor found out finally why I am tired all the time...he said you work to much and you don't have any Vitamin D in your body...great. Oh well such is life in the fast lane. I made it this far guess I'm still good for a few more years.....

  6. Oh my goodness! Time for a new doctor, perhaps!? Hopefully there is NOTHING wrong with you, but a second opinion never hurts?!

  7. In December, I went to the Dr. and he asks "do you exercise?" and I looked him square in the eye and said, "No, but I know people who do." He didn't say anything else about it! Go figure!

  8. HAHAHA! You're a better person than me- I would have punched him! What nerve!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
