Rants and Raves

This week's rants are as follows:

To our beleaguered city and the decimated operating budget: turning down the temperature of both the swimming pool and the showers in order to save on heating costs... Understandable and probably necessary. But damn it makes for a cold swim!

Wishing that this last month of pregnancy was a wee bit more comfortable. I'd also like to be able to see my toes again.

And the raves:

To my mom for informing me that the average American consumes 140 pounds of sugar on a yearly basis... And then promptly requesting a piece of my homemade apple pie. Yes, the stats might be appalling, but no mortal can deny the need for pie!!

For being 38.5 weeks pregnant. Baby J might make an appearance in the near future. Come on baby!

For the tradition that Chris and I started of going out to lunch after all of our midwife appointments. I look forward to our quiet little dates; I'm going to miss them once the (above-mentioned)squalling babe arrives.


  1. I think you need to work on your angry side. lol Your rants are pretty tame. ;)

  2. Yeah, those were pretty lame.

    I just came up with a new one though, courtesy of my trip to the pool this afternoon.

    Here it goes:

    To the lady that takes a 25 minute shower in the shower room at the public pool: A) you’re part of the reason they turned down the hot water and B) I don’t feel that it is quite appropriate for you to whip out your razor and shave everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) in the shared shower room. I don’t want to see that. Or see the hair go floating by my feet in the open drain. It’s gross.

    How was that?

  3. Oh my! That's totally worth a rant! EW!
