Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

All Quiet On The MidWestern Front


We’ve spent the weekend thus far trying to forget–with much success: Dave offered me a beer with dinner last night and couldn’t figure out why I denied him–that I may be pregnant.

This (spits twice and knocks wood) is the longest I’ve incubated a wee critter since I had my Ben and Alex. What does this mean? Fuck-nothing, not really. Anything can go wrong at any time, life sadly offers no such guarantees.

I’m hesitant to call either of my doctors (my endo and my OB) because I don’t really want to make a big deal out of this should things go sadly awry again, but I know that I need to put on my Big Girl Pants and make the calls.

Today, for the first time in I don’t know how long, I am going out with the girls to lunch and to a movie. This makes me nearly giddy with the freedom of it all! Lunch without my kidlets! Movie without being whined at by my big son! I’m going to dive into a vat of fake-buttery popcorn and Ashley is going to have to pull me out by my feet!

I haven’t been so happy since I went on a shoe-buying binge a couple of weeks ago (okay, bad example).

So, sweet Internet whom I love possibly more than my new puppy, what would make you feel blissfully happy? Shallow or deep?

    At this point, I would be soooo happy if my kid would sleep! But I want be be blissfully shallow, too – I would love to blow a lot of money on clothes for myself. The kid doesn’t need diapers, right?

    Winning a bazillion dollar lottery would be a good start.


    No, really.

    Or a clean house that stayed clean.

    Lottery’s more likely.

    Shade and Sweetwater,

    Mmm. Mr. Spit staying home.

    A roomba!

    Friends that thought about what they said, before they said it.

    Meeting the actor I’m currently crushing on. Yes, I am all of thirteen years old.

    Food. Preferably from the pasta place where the cute waiter who flirts with me works.

    I would be blissfully happy to find out the job I’m interviewing for tomorrow only requires long drives once a week, to get an immediate offer, and to use the bump in pay on a cleaning service for the house.

  9. On June 1st, 2008 at 1:53 pm Heather Says:

    I’ve said it many times…a benefactor. Anyone interested? 😉

    Have a fun girl day! I’d like one of those, too, I think!

  10. On June 1st, 2008 at 3:15 pm Lola Says:

    I’m pretty happy, so I’ll have to go with the lottery, too, so I can quit my job. Oh, yeah, and I’d like the gorgeous actor who plays Charles on the Tudors to be the one to hand me the big check and be my new love slave!!

  11. On June 1st, 2008 at 3:50 pm Betty M Says:

    Well I want the lottery too plus someone to buy groceries for me. And a couple of extra hours in the day.

  12. On June 1st, 2008 at 4:04 pm Sara Says:

    I want my children to not make me lovely paintings out of make up, food coloring, or kool aid while I am gone. Or a bubble bath. Yes yes. A bubble bath!

  13. On June 1st, 2008 at 4:43 pm honeywine Says:

    a MAID!!!!!! Strike that…a TEAM of MAIDS! LOL Seriously, whatever happened to that Queen for a Day show?

    Giving my Aunty becky a special prize at my place, go see:)
    Oh and a cool couple of million….

    Enjoy your movie and that buttery pocorn! Hope you get into your Big Girl Pants o.k. too (wink).

    What would make me happy?…..

    1) to be able to afford daycare. Which means I would need to make like $14 plus per hour in a perferbably…job I would enjoy with no bullshit from co-workers.

    2) to add a man to my bed…besides my dear husband just once or twice or three time lol! This is mostly just a happy fantasy though. I can really do without the other man in my bed lol!

  16. On June 1st, 2008 at 6:35 pm Kristen Says:

    Have a wonderful time with the girls!
    I am so wishing that you were able to just enjoy this pregnancy without fear. As you know, I felt much like you do when I got pregnant this time. It took til almost 5 months for me to get actually excited.
    I hope you get there much sooner. And yes call your docs! The endo will really want to be on top of things while you are preggo.
    Love ya gal, thinking of you lots.

  17. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:23 pm Chris Says:

    I’m a very simple man and doesn’t take much to make me happy. But to be perfectly blissful I would need to have the following:

    Playing sports with rugrats, followed by a Cubs win, a family movie before bedtime, and when the kiddies are gone, a porn flick with my Babe and a noisy love making session.

    That’s it.

  18. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:36 pm Marie Says:

    Well we went to six flags this weekend and woke my child up Saturday by jumping on his bed singing the six flags theme song. I was pretty giddy.

  19. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:40 pm Michelle Says:

    I would be happy with a full night of sleep with no one having nightmares and staying in their OWN beds all night. Plus, no dogs wanting to go outside at 5 am. I seriously have not had a full night of uninterrupted sleep since 2002!

  20. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:44 pm Vered Says:

    A girls’ night (or lunch + movie) out is the best.

    Yup, that would make me happy too.

  21. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:47 pm gingermagnolia Says:

    What would make me happy? To own my own home. It seems so far away that some days I think it will never happen.

  22. On June 1st, 2008 at 8:56 pm List Mama Says:

    I feel blissfully happy everytime someone who has found my site decides to become a member! I get giddy!!

  23. On June 1st, 2008 at 9:01 pm Amanda Says:

    Blissfully happy….hmmmmm

    Not going back to work.
    Having a professional crew come and landscape (and maintain) my yard.
    Having a maid.

    World Peace (there, now I’m not quite so shallow, right?)


  24. On June 1st, 2008 at 9:05 pm SciFi Dad Says:

    A movie with buttery popcorn and soda actually sounds pretty good, as long as I’m not with anyone jabbering my ear off during the film.

  25. On June 1st, 2008 at 9:50 pm Amy Says:

    Holy Shit! I think I was away too long! I think Congrats…I hope that’s what you’re looking for! I hope you are doing well and hope to catch up with you soon!

    What would make me blissfully happy…today…SLEEP! Tomorrow…having won the lottery and not having to go to work! Yeah, not possible but hell a girl can dream! Oh, and yes (as she jumps up and down screaming pick me, pick me) to be prego again and to have a living one here! That’s a long time goal/wish! Still, dreaming here!

  26. On June 1st, 2008 at 9:58 pm Heather P. Says:

    Oh what would make me blissfully happy-getting rid of the waterline that crosses our property and the easement that goes with it, so that we could build our dream house.
    I am praying for you to have a healthy baby and pregnancy. Be sure you are taking your Folic Acid suppliements.

  27. On June 2nd, 2008 at 12:23 am Jenn Says:

    I’d answer this but I think you probably know what would make me happier than anything.

  28. On June 2nd, 2008 at 9:05 am DD Says:

    A housemaid to whip into action at a moment’s notice 12 hours a day.

  29. On June 2nd, 2008 at 9:42 am mandy Says:

    It’s shallow, but what would make me blissfully happy would be to have a couple hundred bucks I could spend with my teenager-clothes, bedroom stuff. I hate leaving the house knowing I can’t spend a penny!

    I got to see that movie and cheated on my lowcarb diet and dove into the popcorn too…a whole tub of it! It was bliss. The movie was awesome too.

  30. On June 2nd, 2008 at 10:12 am deb Says:

    Ah…blissfully happy would be to be back in my granddaughters life again.

    Hope you had a great time with the “girls”. That’s something you should definitely try to make a habit of.

  31. On June 2nd, 2008 at 1:04 pm theramblinghousewife Says:

    At this point . . .

    Since I seem to live my life on a diet . . .

    Anything with excessive fat grams, and sugar!!!

  32. On June 2nd, 2008 at 3:07 pm b Says:

    I want to live in a tree house (with electricity and running water of course). K wouldn’t live with me, but i’m hoping for conjugal visits.

  33. On June 2nd, 2008 at 4:58 pm Carlynn Says:

    Congratulations Aunty Becky, very happy for you. Wishing you a long and relaxed bump growing.

  34. On June 2nd, 2008 at 4:58 pm Calliope Says:

    I would be really happy if YOU were really happy.

  35. On June 3rd, 2008 at 1:42 am kate Says:

    i was made happy by putting on my heels, some fluttery lavender top a dark purple pashmina, designer jeans and going, with my girlfriend, to see sex and the city. i don’t care what that says about me as a person. i was happy.
