lemon_says: (Hip)

I hope everyone is celebrating properly. Take a long walk. Sit Indian style (they don't call it that anymore, you know--it's "criss cross applesauce"). Do some yoga. Thank your hips for being useful.

I have been enjoying the day. I had great company, as [livejournal.com profile] eshayden and I walked the kids to the coffeehouse and then [livejournal.com profile] gratefulbambina brought her kids over. We had a lovely, rambunctious day. There was dirt-digging involved, and at one point there were zombies chasing cowgirls.

Ez is currently trying to perform some tricks he saw on "America's Got Talent," so he has wedged himself into a hula hoop and is attempting to roll around the house. You'd be surprised at how much distance he has managed. Anya is doing handstands. No, they aren't jacked up from seven kids running amok all day, eh?

I had to run out quickly for an OB appointment for about an hour, so the ladies watched my two and theirs. I talked to Dr. A--the head OB--about the sonogram tech and all her many ways of annoying me and accusations of dieting, and she said that she's not remotely concerned about anything with Z3PO's size (or mine), so I can cancel that next u/s "growth check" and as long as the fundal height keeps being good she doesn't think I need those. Now all I have to do is make an appointment with the orthopedist to make sure nothing has shifted and he's not going to be all peevish about my damaging his handiwork. I'm thirty weeks already. That went fast, didn't it?

And then we had cinnamon rolls, because every day is better with cinnamon rolls.

So, go bend down and touch your toes, or run up some stairs or something. And have a cinnamon roll. Do it for your hips.

Edit: Here's a conversation with Ez for you. I let the kids watch America's Got Talent and on one of the results shows there was a performance from "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert." Ez sat there watching in silence for a while, then said, "Yeeeah, those people shouldn't go to Vegas."

Me: Those people aren't in the competition.
Ez: What are they doing there?
Me: They're just a performance. It's from a musical. They're already kind of famous.
Me: Yes. People pay to see this show.
Ez: Why the hell would they do that?

I admit I don't like most musicals either, so I cracked up. :D

I take full responsibility. I don't say it often in front of them, but the inflection was absolutely mine.

Actually, I think of you every time my hips hurt after a particularly intense riding lesson.

Happy Hip Day -- in the sense that I'm so happy that, if you had to fall, you landed how you did and are still here to document it. Not so much in the sense that I'm happy it happened.

Yknow. Klutzy words for "Gah, I'm sorry it's still giving your problems, and I hope it quits before the five year mark."

I knew what you meant. :D And thank you!

If I can't laugh about some of this, I got nothin'. C'est la vie!

After y'all left, Anya just flopped backward on the cushion and said, "That was just LOVELY."

Sam was KILLING me with her silent lecturing of Elise about the iPhone.

I really wish we had video of that, she totally came out of the bedroom to get on to Elise about that phone
