anxiety anxiety baby

 i'm the worst at wasting my free time. it's such a bad habit of mine. when i get "free time" i squander it on lame things rather than fun things. last night thomas was gone and the kids sleeping and i was caught up on most of my chores and i thought i would just enjoy myself by watching all the shows i've got saved on netflix that no one wants to watch with me. like all my british miniseries and bollywood movies that would cause thomas to die on the spot if i ever tried to make him watch. instead though, i flipped on the tv and got out my ironing board and watched the vanilla ice project on the DIY network and ironed shirts. what in the world possessed anyone to put together a show with rob van winkle and his posse of former hip hop miscreants as home improvement experts? and they even threw out a few ice ice baby lyrics as motivation to get the project done. what possessed me to watch it? 
vanilla ice project, rapper rob van winkle host
i could have been watching "daniel deronda" or "the forsyte saga" or "jodhaa akbar" but i was watching this drivel. sometimes i hate myself. i suffer from some sort of problem that doesn't allow me to enjoy my free time. like i should constantly be doing something remotely productive and i can't sit down and enjoy a good show that might even make me smarter or at least not dumber. most people would call that anxiety.

 this is my wart. scarlett calls it my wert. this proves i am a witch. warts are a witches calling card. yesterday i bumped it on some produce at publix and it was a huge bloody mess. it's getting better and worse at the same time.

Yeeeesh - the wert doesn't look so good. On the plus side, "posse of former hip hop miscreants" is my official Phrase of the Day, so there's that...

is that gold leaf on top of your wert??!!

gold leaf? almost. wert freezer.

it looks gold in the pic. i've never seen gold wart remover. just thought maybe you were color coordinating with those gold wedges. ;)

If your wart freezer doesn't work, use apple cider vinegar. Sounds weird, but I swear by it. Cut a piece of cotton ball (or take the end of a q-tip) and douse it in ACV, and lay on top of that nasty wart...cover with a band-aid (or duct tape, whatever) and leave overnight. It might sting and hurt, and by morning, it will be puffy, but after a few days, you will notice a difference. I had some on my foot (seriously, so gross!!) and the doc wanted to do surgery to cut them out with a laser b/c apparently they were too deep to burn or freeze (?!) so I did a bit of home remedy research and bought an 89 cent bottle of ACV that totally did the trick. :)

Very informative. Jared was totally grossed out by the wart but then understanding when he learned what it was. Ryan is intrigued by ACV as he has a big ole ugly deep wart between two of his fast-running toes.

I went to Doll House to get my dress and they promised they would get it in. I was so upset when they didn’t come through for me so I went Sassy Boutique. They were able to get my dress within three 3 days. They had wonderful customer service and nothing was a problem for them. I really appreciated the effort they made to make my night memorable. i will never go to dollhouse again.
