Getting On My Nerve(s)

I have a pinched nerve in my neck right now. Let me tell you, there are many different ailments that can interfere with your day, but a pinched nerve is just one of those things that cause you pain like your body is getting back at you for some evil you must have done. I have had these plenty of times before, but they usually originate from some vertebra and send their fingers of pain throughout my back, neck, and head. Not fun.

Perhaps one of the worst parts about a pinched nerve is how it can come in two forms, constant pain or only when you move a certain way.

Today I have the periodic version coming from high in my shoulder region that hurts whenever I turn my head more than 5-10 degrees either direction. I can’t really say which form of nerve pain is worse because they both just plain suck; today I am siding with the periodic version because it seems to have a sick, taunting personality of its own. Every time I let myself forget that the pain is there, I turn my head to look at something/someone and BAM! it hits me like a ton of bricks! I feel like slapping myself every time I do it, but then that would make it even worse.

Nothing like a good reminder ever so often that you are an idiot and cannot remember even something that will hurt every time you do it…even minutes later.

I have done the chiropractor in the past, but honestly, I hate going to those guys. Getting an “adjustment” does work, but I hate the badgering to start up a twice a week visit schedule for as long as your insurance will cover you. Has there ever been such a blatant attempt to milk your pain for their gain?

Tonight I am trying out a massage therapist to see if they can do the job with less hassle and hopefully a little more enjoyment in the process. I sure hope they can make it go away. Pretty please.

Merry Christmas!

I am trying to decide whether this post should be in WGS or here. Well….all things considered, WGG felt the more appropriate place for this rant. Now on with my Merry Christmas Rant!!!!

Christmas 2

My hubby and I don’t buy gifts anymore. We don’t do it for Christmas, Birthday’s, Anniversaries, or even Valentines Day. We have decided as a couple that we won’t touch ourselves with these decisions throughout the year. We have decided to let our kids pick out the gifts we give to each other. They are more creative than we have ever attempted to be”¦like when the kids swing off their closet door and end up in a heap with said doors on top of them we look at each other and say “Happy Anniversary”. When we are picking out the new dryer that isn’t covered (inside and out) with red crayon we look at each other and say “Happy Birthday” when we pick out the dining room set that miraculously doesn’t have white paint all over the chairs and legs we say “Merry Christmas.” Yep DH and I don’t “Do” gifts, nah, we let the kids pick out our gifts!

Quit Touching Me!

So…I’m pregnant……………….AGAIN!! This is my 5th child and I am really looking forward to most of the rituals of being pregnant, such as stuffing my face with no guilt, being able to put my feet up and blame it on the swelling, and getting away with all those wonderful unladylike body functions (that men seem to have mastered), and be able to smile and blame it on the baby!!! Among these, there is one ritual, that I DO NOT look forward too!! Being touched by complete strangers!!Quit Touching Me!

So, why is it, that everyone, especially strangers, feels that they have the right to molest you, every time they see you, just because your stomach arrives 5 minutes before you do?? What is it about a woman’s big, huge “look, I’ve swallowed a watermelon” belly, that compels complete strangers to walk up, arms outstretched and start rubbing your belly as if you were Buddha! Do they think a genie is gonna pop out and grant them a wish? Something may pop out, but it ain’t gonna be no genie!!!!!

I don’t mind friends or family, getting the occasional “rub” in, it’s expected and frankly cute! It’s when someone, you don’t know, has never met, and would never, ever, approach or talk to for any reason, suddenly appears in your path, with the biggest grin in the world, and heads straight for your belly, as if the Hope Diamond is in your belly button! You see them coming from miles away. It’s as if there is a homing device secretly planted in your womb with your baby. They can’t stop themselves, but you wish they would.

Quit Touching Me!

I am only 7 weeks along, so this ritual has yet to start, but believe me….if you see me in the street, or in the store, or anywhere for that matter, and you for one second think, that I am going to let you, a stranger, touch my body in any way, no matter how innocent…………….you had better back up and “QUIT TOUCHING ME”

Why Lipsense Is The Best Lipstick

Getting a lipstick that would not just suit your lips or skin tone is not as easy as people think. It takes some trial and error in order to find the perfect match for your lips. One of the things that you will want to do is go sites like lipcarespot if you want to spare yourself of the hassle of doing so. With that said, what are some of the advantages of choosing Lip Sense, and why it can be hailed as one of the best lipstick brands in the market nowadays? Let’s find out below.

Contains Natural Ingredients

Indeed, Mother Nature has one of the best solutions to various skin problems. The Lip Balm that LipSense offers has Cocoa, Shea Butter, and Coconut Oil to help keep your lips moist. It also has blue seaweed, which is rich in collagen, which will help to improve the elasticity of the skin and thus help to keep it look young. Another natural ingredient that can be found in Lipsense is Orchid flower extract, which provides anti-oxidants and also serves as a sun screen.

High-Quality Paraffin

Paraffin wax can be used to keep the lips glossy, as well as to make the lip balm itself be kept firm. Not all paraffin waxes or oils, however, are fit for placement on the skin. The LipSense difference lies in the quality of the paraffin, as it makes use of mineral oil which is highly-refined, and thus lubricates the skin and prevents it from drying out. The mechanism of this one allows it to retain moisture as well. All of this greatness comes at an affordable price, with a relatively large tube costing a mare $20. For up to 1 month of everyday use, this price is not much of a price to pay at all.
