Stuff that I can't really title because all I do is random stuff, but I've used "Random Stuff" as a title before

** Last nite Sei and I got to go to the BYU v TCU game. Sei's cousin, Matt Ah You, (we call him Matty) plays for BYU. We had planned on buying tickets from a friend, then Sei wasn't able to get off work, then his cousin called with tickets so Sei asked his boss again and found out it would be his "short" nite which means his 8 hour shift instead of 12. So... we were able to go to the game, see Sei's 2 aunts and his uncle, watch the game, get lost walking to our car... It was a sad game because BYU had the best record- totally undefeated- but they lost last nite. :( It was still a ton of fun! I'm finally getting to where I watch the whole game instead of one person and I'm understanding more of the calls. I ♥ Football when I actually have a team I'm goin' for! The nite before BYU plays out of town the football players alway have a fireside (when the youth come to listen to some of the players speak about spiritual things). Alec, my dad and Sei went but Tristan had a game. Matty gave the opening prayer. Alec was just in awe of these huge men he looks up to getting up speaking about living right and keeping yourself pure. Alec loved it.

** Tristan's team won- finally. They've had a tough season. Tdog had a great game. He even had an interception. I was loud and crazy and everything a proud football mom is! It was fun! I can not WAIT until high school football.

** I sent Sei to the store yesterday to get me more Diet DP. He brought home 4 2 liters- but 2 of them were caffeine free. What is he trying to do to me?? I'll give it a try- but I won't like it.

** So, I've mentioned before that I am seeing a counselor (Does it sound cooler to call her my therapist? "My therapist said...") Anyway... I see her. My ex sees her, and we're all suppose to be working towards the same common goal. Only problem? Sei and I are the only ones working towards the goal! You know it's bad when your therapist is about to pull her hair out and saying things like, "Tori!! What are they thinking?!??!?!??! Aaaaaaagggghhhhh!!" I know. Believe me- I know.

** Just a random tid bit that could be labeled under "TMI" that crossed my mind after seeing this photo:

I never brea$tfed any of my 300 kids. I never, ever had the desire. Does that mean I suck? (No pun intended although it's kinda funny I said that...) And before the La Leche League attacks, I will be the FIRST to say all my reasons for not wanting to, besides just "not wanting to", were in fact all selfish. I could list them, but it might be too much b00b talk for my male reader. But for the record- my kids are all smart, totally bonded to me and totally healthy. And to all the mom's who do/did brea$tfeed- I think that's awesome. I think I'm just wondering outloud if I am weird for never having that desire...

First!

Do we play that game here?!

Chel said...

I can't believe BYU lost. What the?? That sux.

Ummmmm no caffeine? What is Sei thinking? Obviously he's not! haha.

Interesting about the br3astf33ding! I AM THE SAME WAY. I don't br3astfeed my kids - I don't want to and don't have the desire and I'm not going to do it. gosh.

Annie said...

Isn't this the therapist that THEY chose? Crazy! And I mean that in a clincial way.

I've been in enough classrooms to say that I cannot tell the difference between the kids that were on-the-t!t and the kids that were not.

Chel said...

AND just because I haven't said enough (haha), my kids are all happy and healthy and smart too. Sorry folks, there is no difference. Formula rules!

oh yeah, and I love Liv. I think she'd be perfect for Jaxon.

Amanda said...

Loved your title for this post! LOL

I'm trying to feel bad for BYU losing, but it is just not in me. Sorry, I am a Utah fan through and through. Okay, maybe I feel little bad.

Yay for Tristan!!!!! High school football will be so fun!

No caffeine!?! Does he have a death wish. ;)

Lame about your ex and the therapist. Some people are just so dense. Gosh!

All I have to say about the brangelina photoshoot....who flippin cares about his private photos! ewwwwwwwww

I didn't breastfeed either. Well I tried. With Jordan I didn't last 3 days. I lasted longer with the twins, 3 weeks. But then I was tired of being a 24 hour cafe so I quit. Then Megan came along. I pumped for 3 months because she prefered a bottle over me. The only reason I lasted that long is because she spent a week in the NICU after she was born and I felt she probably deserved as much of me as she could get. (For the record, my kids are healthier than my best friends kids whom she breastfed for a year and who are always sick. So there, take that Le Leche...)

Lastly, Liv is getting so big!

Yvonne said...

What a GREAT title for your post ; )

That fireside must have been AMAZING. That is exactly the kind of thing I think every teenage boy needs to see--so glad Alec got to.

Congrats to Tristan on winning (always so tough when they lose a lot of games--you can only say so many times, "it's not whether you win or lose..." (sure it is)

Good for you working for the goal--you know it and so do your kids.

Regarding the breastfeeding: I have breastfed my last 3--main reason: It's easier and cheaper.

Love the pic of Liv--she is so cute.

Klin said...

So sad about the cougars. They announced it at the end of my training last night. I did not shed a tear. I refuse to cry over losing.

Woot, woot for Tdog and his team. Feels to good to win one. I'm sad our high school football stuff is over. I really enjoyed it.

I'm not surprised by the therapists comments. Not at all.

I breastfed one. She was the only one who wanted to. There are NO photos of that. Definitely TMI! OH, and no you are not weird.

Liv is a doll. I was getting my hair cut yesterday and this little girl had on the cutest outfit. It was from a mom in Idaho who named her company after her daughter, Livi and Co.

Klin said...

One more thought.

If you share your private photos doesn't that make them NOT private anymore?

S said...

I loved loved loved bfeeding my first born, the second one thirteen years later not so much. But I did it anyway cuz it was cheap.....except for all the anti gas products:))) Awesome that you got to date your husband last night YEAH!!!

I wanna go to lunch today and I can't find anyone to go? Can you meet me for lunch......Pho or Thai?

omar said...

"it might be too much b00b talk for my male reader"

He appreciates it.

BYU has a football program now? (Go Penn State!)

Camille said...

Sad BYU lost! but yay for Tristan!

I br3astfed for 4 1/2 months, and it was 4 months too long. Never.again. It's good to know that there are people out there who hated it as much as I did! The ONLY reason I stuck it out is cuz it was cheap. I justified quiting when I figured that if I had to do it any longer I'd just have to spend the money we saved on a counselor...therapist...to regain my sanity.

Robin said...

Give the caffeine free a try. I decided to finally try giving it up and I think the c.f. coke tastes just as good as with the caffeine.

K said...

I nursed all my babies and I liked it. It was cheap and convenient for me, and I liked the one on one time with my babies. Nursing was something I always knew I wanted to do, but I don't think that it's the best thing for every situation.

I really love that BYU football players give firesides! That's so awesome! :)

Sketchy said...

I like the Caffene free DP.

And I breastfed all my kids for at least 8 months (only 1 was that short he got a bad cold and couldn't nurse and weaned himself during that week, I was so sad.)

But I love live football. Go Tori's son's team!

So are we still friends?

Sketchy said...

Oh also, I'm Team Black.

Does that tip the scales in my favor?

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I nursed all my kids. I nursed Melody for almost 3 years because I was friends with the La Leche League President and she advised it. Why did I do it? Because we were freakin poor and couldn't afford to buy formula when you could get the milk staright from the cow for free!

Momma Magpie said...

They make caffeine free DDP? Yayyy! I'll be looking for that.

I think anything celebrity related is too much information! But I've seen her cleavage in almost every movie she's been in, so this was nothing new to me.

Whitney said...

Caffeine free DP? Ew, no way. It's only good with the hyper drug. I do believe it has a different taste if it's not in there...

hi tori -- you made me laugh how you said you had 300 kids .. and how you said you s u c k (about breastfeeding hahaha). i breastfed our girls. personal choice. no biggie that you didn't.

you show me an awesome example of a mommy :)

love ya, kathleen :)

La Leche League said...

ATTACK! If you're not with us, you're against us.

omar said...

Just kidding, that was me. I wanted to add that not breastfeeding is no big deal to me, but not swaddling is downright unforgivable.

Physcokity said...

"W" m@g@zine...I already have issues with it. It's that typical oxymoron or trying to sell "high fashion" clothing all the while parading around basically nood3 pics of models. Hello ab3rcr@pp!e & f!tch.

What I used to do was draw my own line of clothing on these "models" that term is used way too loosely. I don't want to be anything like them...

Physcokity said...

I love Annie's remark about the baby feeding habits!

Physcokity said...

or = of

Physcokity said...

my punctuation sucked on that first one, and probably makes no sense sorry for making you reread it fives times :(

No Cool Story said...

OOh, I'd not cross La Leche Tori. Beware.

No Cool Story said...

I didn't breatfeed one of my kids but did for the other. Guess which one.

Anyway. I don't the guilt and the fanaticism from some breatfeeders, but whatever dudes, let me keep my boob cover and you can do whatever you want with yours.

No Cool Story said...

Daily Hero drinks his diet DP caffeine free.
I hope you like it.

omar said...

Can I add that I had never had diet Dr Pepper until this past weekend? I was underwhelmed. I thought it was going to be like happiness in liquid form, based on what I read from you and other bloggers.

your commenters are cracking me up.

great day to ya, kathleen
