Random 10 Friday

So, now I think in addition to my homemaking funk, I'm going through a blogging funk, too.

I usually always have stuff to talk about. Today, I am drawing a complete blank.

I'm sure it's an effect of the crazy tiredness.

By the way, I totally caved yesterday and had a Cherry Coke. But, I only had one out of a can instead of a big 44 oz-er at 7-11. So far today, I've only drank water, so we're off to a good start. But, I am still really, really tired.


I went to a yoga class today at the Stake Center. It felt really, really good, and it was really hard. I think after the marathon next week, I'll start doing more yoga and weight training. When I have a rock-hard-bad-ass-body-builder body, I'll show you some pictures.


I've sent a couple of my songs to Greg Hansen yesterday. He replied and said he was going to listen to them today. I'm excited to see what he has to say, and hopefully, he can help me! He's produced for a lot of LDS artists. Keep your fingers crossed, for me.


I've had a couple of people ask me about sheet music. I don't know why I didn't think of this before. So far, I've been kind of lazy with my music. Most of my songs are in my head (very risky, I know, especially considering how easily I forget stuff), and the ones I do have written down are on lead sheets (chord symbols). So, my next project is to write out all of my songs, and put them in a book. I'll keep you all posted on when that's done, so you can buy one if you want!

I'm also working on some Christmas music, so look for a possible Christmas CD coming soon (maybe) If I get around to writing and recording in time. It might not be til next year. We'll see.


I'm kind of on sensory overload right now. I think, having children does that to me. The little one has been crying alot today. I think she is tired, but refuses to take a nap. Right now, she is watching Baby Einstein in my room, hopefully, she'll fall asleep (just in time for us to have to leave to take KJ to a birthday party) Peter has been having a lot of tantrums, lately, too. What is up with that? Plus, the major screaming contests that KJ & TJ have. I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! AAAAAARRRRRRHGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!


Sometimes, I wish I could just go outside and scream, without the neighbors thinking I'm crazy. (I think they already think I'm crazy). Sometimes, I hope I'll get some obscure illness that's just bad enough for me to be hospitalized for a couple of days, so I can get a break.

This is Motherboard's crazylady. I'm borrowing her for today.

Do you think my crazy lady is starting to sneak out. Um, yeah, I think so. I'm not crazy ornery, ranting and raving like usual when my crazy hits. This time, I'm just mildly numb. I've moved beyond the point of caring...about anything. Do you think that's depression, too? Probably. It's been about 2 months since I've taken a happy pill. I tend to need them more in the winter.

We'll see how I do without them this winter. I just may be calling up my doc for a refill. They were prescribed 3 1/2 years ago for PPD. Do you think they'll still let me have a prescription for happy pills 3 years after having a baby?

I'm very seriously considering asking my DTD to be my regular Dr. I love him. He's the only doc I've been to, who seems to have any kind of clue as to what he's talking about. One time a few years ago, I went to an after hours clinic with severe abdominal pain. My DTD was closed. I was sure it was related to my girl stuff. It was so painful that I couldn't walk, or even sit, or talk. All I could do was writhe around on the ground. I called my hubby to rush home to stay with the kids, and I called my Mom to drive me to the doctor.

After waiting in the little waiting room for 1 1/2 hours, the doctor finally came in, took an x-ray. That's it. No ultrasound. I told him I thought it was a cyst or something. He told me he thought I just need to pooh. Yeah, I know. I know what it feels like to have to pooh, and this is NOT it!

What an idiot. I went home 3 hours later, knowing nothing more than I did before, and still in pain. It eventually went away, and I'm convinced that it was a ovarian cyst that just burst.

Yeah, I don't like doctors. More often than not, they have no idea WTH they're talking about, and it's a complete waste of my time. So, I don't go unless I know I need antibiotics, and usually, I don't go myself at all. Just for my kids.

Well, there's my soapbox of the day. You never know what will come out of me when I sit down to write. Hopefully, sometime today, I can get a shower. That is my greatest wish of the day.

Hey Sher... I hope you get your groove back soon. I'm sure it had a lot to do with the marathon-But who knows?
You should really think seriously about making a Christmas CD-I would buy it. I like it when I can play Christmas music when company is in my home but like to play either just piano or guitar (no singing) I listened to your music and you are so very talented. I love "The River" one (unbelievable)
I agree with you about doctors. When I was running marathons I had a pain in my right side that was like my appendix was blowing up. It felt like knifes stabbing me ALL the time(I'm not kidding) When I went and got ultrasound(s) they kept telling me it was just a cyst that blew up. I kept telling them is was my appendix-This went on for a YEAR till finally I was rushed to the ER and they had to remove my appendix that was getting ready to burst any second! My doctor did apologize to me. (which was nice) Most of the time runners and people in shape are VERY sensitive to their bodies-Which can be good and bad! :)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Sher, my heart just goes out to you right now. I know times like this and they seem to drag on and you feel like you should just be able to snap out of it and then that doesn't work. Please know it will go away soon. You are such a motivated person. Maybe it's your body saying slow down sher baby. We got plenty of time left. I need some chillin out time here.

Your CD's are beautiful. Never give up on your talent. CrazyLady scared the living day lights out of me. She was saying she had some fashion issues today in her post. I didn't realize it was that bad :)

Every day I say that's it, there is nothing left to blog about and decide I'm gonna quit. Then it pulls me back in.

I would definitely buy a book of your music so please let me know when it comes out! I wish I could write.

PPD & regular depression sucks. I had it and didn't even know it until someone told me. It was worse for me during winters in UT, too. The gray skies did me in. Which is one reason I had to move to AZ. Even now when we'll have one gray day, I can still get down and feel all my energy drained away. Makes me want to hibernate and not talk to anyone or deal with anything.

I just clicked on the Piano photo on your side bar and listened to you mp3s. Woman, you are amazingly talented. Please, please get the groove back and keep your music going. I'll buy your CD definitely.

I hope you get through whatever it is you're going through right now. I hope it's just one of those funks some of us experience sometimes. I wish I were funny I'd try to make you laugh and cheer you up with a witty comment but I'm a dud that way.


wow Sher!
i hope there is really nothing WRONG with you...seriously. it would be good if you were only Full of Crap! {you know your hubby will love that joke!}

i always love your Random Fridays!!!

twice as nice said...

you are too cute, what ever you already have a rock-hard-bad-ass-body-builder body!!!!!
I need some help!
You rock good luck on the marathon!

Jessica said...


I still feel so bad that my little AJ was hard for you today. You already do so much! I really appreciate your help.

By the way I seriously can't handle not having sugar anymore. I've done this for 12 days and have 9 more to go. I don't think I can do it! All I've been thinking about tonight is Neilsons Frozen Custard with brownies and cookie dough!

Mikki said...

I've been in a blogging funk lately too. I love your random Friday posts though. Pretty good for a funk.
Isn't there a seasonal depression disorder? Perhaps that's what you suffer from? Just a thought. I hope you feel better soon though. My mom gets a little depressed occasionally too sometimes.
I would totally buy your Christmas cd, how about a lullaby one too?
That is so cool about Greg HAnsen listening to your cd, hope something great comes of it. :o)

Love Fam said...

I too like your Randon Friday's! I can totally relate to the shower thing, most days just getting that done is a huge accomplishment! I just think you are an amazing person who does very amazing things, I could never run a marathon, not in a million years, or play any kind of musical instrument!!! Not to mention I'd give anything to write a post half as clever as even your "funk" posts, so come on give yourself some credit!

Sher said...

You see, this is why blogging is so good. You guys really help lift me up. seriously!
Jess-don't feel bad, I think I would've been complaining even if she hadn't come over. I really do love having her over. And you can hold out a few more days. Tell you what, hold out til I run the marathon, then we'll go out and celebrate together over some coldstone or something!
Mikki-I have self diagnosed myself with SAD--seasonal affective disorder. That's why every winter we go somehwere tropical (beside the fact that we have to for work).
It really helps!

Motherboard said...

I think its the moon cycle... cause my crazylady has been rattling her cage lately too!

here's to kicking them both to the curb soon.

did you print your crazylady pic and put it on your kitchen counter? All the cool people do that, you know! ;P

Just yesterday I had a girly pain. BAD. Like when the cyst ruptures. I've had that happen like 2 times. But it didn't get too bad. It was probably a 6.5 on the 1-10 scale. I took some tylenol/ibuprofen/whatever generic pills I could find. My unofficial diagnosis is that it was starting to turn into a cyst, but changed it's mind out of mercy for me.

Remember a few weeks ago when I a blogged about not doing anything the entire day? I barely changed my kid's diaper that morning. No one got dressed. No shower. No housework. Hot dogs for lunch, pizza for dinner. --> It was a cloudy day. The first one in months. Maybe I'm SAD, too.

I have absolutely no experience with happy pills, but I know that if you have a problem, they work. I suppose I'd suggest getting busy and trying to snap out of it, but I know that it doesn't work that way for everyone.

Kids fighting DRIVES ME CRAZY. Makes me want to go outside and scream at the top of my lungs. Maybe we could do it in the backyard?

p.s. I love you. -->TOTALLY didn't mean to make a movie reference, though I loved that movie. Anyway. I love you. And your music. You should definately write it down. And do chrismas music. and the lullaby CD was a good idea, too. So.....yeah. How 'bout you get on that?

p.p.s. Have I said that I love seeing you on The View? =D

Sher said...

yeah, It's really BUGS me that I have the same name as her.

"Why should I change my name. She's the one who sucks!"

Can anyone name that movie?
HInt: change the she to he

Your sense of humor is still perfectly intact. That's when you know you aren't too far gone. Thanks for the laugh today, I needed it!
