I Fought the Tree....................

..................and the tree won!!!

That's right folks. In all of my superior intelligence(it's OK to laugh here, you really will be laughing in about 10 seconds), I backed my little orange car into a 100+ year old oak tree this morning. Nothing says TGIF like a a dented and scratched car, and a severely damaged tail light. Wanna know the best part? My inspection is due, like uhm TODAY. You can't pass inspection with a broken tail light, now can you. Nope, definitely not gonna pass inspection now.

Obviously I was a little(or a lot) upset with myself for backing into a tree that is older than I am, and has been in the same place since we moved into this house 2 years ago. Then, I was mad at myself for being a total dolt. Then I just had a good laugh. Why did I laugh? I laugh at other people with broken tail lights, and dented cars. I laugh because they were a dolt and backed into junk. So, if I laugh at others, I have to laugh at myself too.

One more thing to make your day even better. Pregnancy hormones(I guess that's what is causing this) has turned the skin around my eyes into lizard skin. It sounds gross because it is. Seriously my eyelids are red, swollen, and itchy. Then, later in the day when the swelling starts to subside they flake. Like a snake losing it's skin. NASTY!!!!! They are getting better. I haven't worn makeup on my eyes, except for mascara, all week. That seems to be helping. And, yesterday I "happened upon", or took from a co worker's desk since she is on surgical leave, some Aveeno Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion. Thanks DM. Definitely less reptile like this morning.

That's my Friday. Hope you have as much fun in your day as I have already had at 9:44am in the morning.

WOW!!!!!!! I HAVE LIZARD SKIN TOO!! Get it with EVERY pregnancy!! Only mine is on the sides and below my mouth... lovely, huh. I use the little facial pump of some sort of aveeno (I think it's soothing facial something or other) - and it works. Until the next morning - when I wake up and have this horribly flaky skin again. **ACK**

Ok sweetie...I totally have the flaky skin across my eyelids too. Happens with every pregnancy...Thankfully they sent me to the dermatologist when I was prego with one of the girls and I have a prescription that still keeps it in check. I think you can totally blame backing the car into the tree on the flakes around your eyes....LOL "Sorry hunny I couldn't see I had lizard skin in my eyes." LOL LOL LOL. Love ya girl!
