I find your lack of faith disturbing

It has occurred to me that maybe I'm not as quite as nice as I think I am.

Over the last few days, I have had very little patience with people. With people I don't know. I find the most horrible, hateful things coming out of my mouth (well, not really. My fingers, actually) and it's disturbing. And I kept wondering what it was that lets me be so evil toward strangers and I realized that I'm not saying things to my victims' faces; I'm saying them online to people I wouldn't even recognize if they knocked on my door.

in the i-tunes cart: lots of newly-added Madonna

And I guess that's what anonymity buys you: the chance to act like an asshole without facing any consequences. If people talked to each other the way they do online, frozen peas would fly off store shelves. So if I've said something particularly harsh to you lately, please accept my apologies.

The other problem is the return of the hormones. Alex is slowly weaning himself, I think, and so my body is cranking itself back into gear. I feel like crap. I've had cramps for four days now. Yesterday, I had such an awful migraine that Katie had to fix her own breakfast and I drove her to school in my pajamas.

on the tube: Lost season 1 on DVD. If you are lucky enough to own it, watch disc 7 first, if you haven't already.

On Sunday, we killed some time at Ala Moana. They put a Lush store in some time ago. I had heard a lot about Lush and how great their stuff is but had never gone in there until Sunday. And boy, am I glad I did. I think I'm in love. I want to buy it all. They just came out with a new baby shampoo and I'm looking for an excuse to buy it.

Last Sunday, I got too much sun. And too much sand in by swimsuit. We went to Ryan's dad's annual picnic thing and the kids and I spent an hour or so on the beach. It was just what I needed. It's amazing what the beach does for my mood. I really need to go to the beach, like, now. That'll help.


Hi Jenn! First, I want to congrats on you being an excellent MOMMY! I wrote to Ryan on his blog on my meeting two kids at Liliha Bakery(naughty), making me think of of Katie and Alex(ANGELS).

I saw your post on HT. You go girl! It's not often that you get angry but when you do...you sure have a reason and back up every bit of it.

You also mentioned about Katie's poor Math skills due to the Public School System. I wholeheartedly agree with you. My son was a classic case. They told me he was below average and I fought them all the way thru high school. He even was held back two grades.

Today, he is a Staff Sargent with the US Army, his College all paid for, and a leader. He has traveled the world. Katie will excell and prove them all wrong...especially with loving and intellengent parents as you and Ryan!

We must have a picnic soon. I think I need a break too. today would have been my 30th Wedding Anniversary with my late husband. My kids didn't call. I'm busy with my second families at HT or HS!

Malama pono,

Congratulations on joining the Lush bandwagon. I've heard a lot about the brand back in college but didn't get a chance to see and smell everything until they opened the Waikiki store next to Cheesecake Factory. That feeling of walking into a Lush store and wanting to buy everything? Man, that happens to me every time, and I can't help it any more! Now if only I could get a bathtub...

(PS. The baby shampoo? It's a little runny in the bottle, but I hear that it's super gentle and cleans decently, plus it's not tested on animals. Also, the Lush North America forums is... interesting, considering that I haven't seen this kind of rabid devotion to any kind of bath product, ever, and that's all I can say about the matter.)
