No, I don't know ofr sure that she's breech again. I'll find out tomorrow. BUT. That was my word verification on someone's blog when I posted a comment. That does not put me in a good mood. :( Yes, I know I'm crazy, but I do read into word verifications sometimes, and I had just thought to myself the other day that I hadn't noticed any that were meaningful lately.

And now, a whiny, petty rant. I was putting away some of my winter clothes into storage bins today, and I was pulling out some clothes to donate as well. I'm donating some skirts that I used to wear a few years ago. See, I used to like my legs. I used to feel good about myself in skirts that were above the knee (but still tasteful.) Ummm... that's until the varicose vein and spider vein fairies teamed up to wage an all-out war on my legs. :( I know that's one of the tricks that pregnancy and older age play on us, but COME ON. Then there's the fact that getting a tan is bad for you, and the only thing that really makes varicose and spider veins look a little better is covering them up with a tan! (I use those self-tanning moisturizers, which I love, but they don't cover the veins like a real tan does.) Maybe someday I'll be independently wealthy and I can get laser treatment and varicose vein surgery to get rid of them. A girl can dream, right? :)

I read in to those stupid word verifications too!! How silly is that?? And as a biologist who has spent the last 13 summers working outside, there is certainly a smart way to get a tan. You don't have to go without any sunblock. Even wearing as much as 30 spf still gives you a great glow without risking skin cancer!!

boo to your veins! :( sorry - it just seems like one more thing to add to the list! Do they go away?
And don't worry about the word verification! LOL

Well, when you are getting your laser treatment on your veins, I am going to get a tummy tuck! My tummy hasn't been flat since before my first pregnancy. Getting old sucks! :)
