time 2 rhyme

UGH UGH UGH guess who's oober loanly this week? TAMNERS!! Finals = barf!! BEING IN LAW/BIZ/MED/DENTAL SCHOOL IS SO HARD FOR US. But mostly me. It's like needles and parenting and cancer and divorce and stuff, way harder to WATCH someone go through it than to do it yourself, right?? Poor me w/ a life that is so hard and yet so awesome. Been making my darling ponder pout for a while now, but with a frownier twist than normal bc I am seriously stumped. Usually, things that rhyme are true and awesome. Flirt to convert, modest is hottest, pilatie makes you hottie, moral laurel, etc. Been able to count on that my whole life but now it's crashing down around me bc just realized...

FINAL and VINYL rhyme and yet are opposite, one gross and one awesome.

Why do things that sound the same all the sudden have to have so teensy in common!?!?!?

Ugh. Anyways, SO HARD to have a hubby have finals, talk about STRESS, so me and a couple of the wives club wives are just shopping up a storm bc--rhyme time--got a total URGE TO SPLURGE. Splurging is THE BEST! To be serviceable, I'm making a Christmas list so that cute AngelBiscuit doesn't have to worry about what to get me and can just worry about making us loaded by getting strait A pluses on his anatomy/physiology/networking/tax blahblah-poopie-poo nonsense boy stuff. Told him no pressure loverbuns, I'm just the FIRST LADY OF THE SCHOOL so should have the smartest of all the hubs, I mean I know I already DO but prooving it is always kind of a tender smug mercy. What else should I do to help me persevere in this loanly trying time? Trying to think of what to put on my list (besides spa stuff and Forgotten Carols, duh!) is hard. Want to make sure to get everything you're getting, but more and better, no offense.

Fountain diet coke running through your tap with life time supply of limes?

It sounds like you have your answer, FINAL...VINYL. You have to get your own vinyl making machine (what are they called? Sorry, I know I sound so lame, but they don't have them where I live. I have to order my vinyl from my sister in law who lives in Utah). You have to get a whole new wardrobe too, you are having twins and I'm sorry to say, you may get a little bigger (no offense). Of course all of your maternity clothes will be x-small, but you are going to need them. Don't worry, it isn't you getting fat, it's the babies growing. :)

"Pilatie makes you hottie"

Hi-laaarious! I think you need to write a poem about all of God's greatest rhyming creations :)

Annette Lyon said...

You're totally suffering. Poor thing. I'd suggest lots of chocolate, but that might not be good for the hot figure. Hmm.

Rach said...

Man, having a hubby with finals IS like divorce and cancer! Good luck TAMN! You can do it and you deserve a serious calorie-free treat after!

Tia said...

You can't forget the clip on hair extensions - they're on sale now at Sally's!

Jean said...

blahblah-poopie-poo nonsense boy stuff... LOL. Seriously LOL.

The Boob Nazi said...

I love people who say we got through medical school. Yeah it must be so tough for the spouse not actually in class, I'm sure.

And how about an upgrade on your ring or something? That'll show us all up since your ring is already bigger than mine!

my stay-at-home-momma drama said...

I think you should start fasting and praying that you make it through this most difficult trial. Bonus . . . you won't have to worry about the extra holiday pounds.

Kate said...

Tamn, aren't you using this time to catch up on your crafts/scrapbook/decorating/photog biz?!?

peewee said...

You need new vinyl kitchen flooring!!!

Melissa said...

It's so good to know that in this bad economee we can count on people like you to help stimulate it with your urge to splurge!

Mina said...

TAMN, don't frowny pout any lawnger. Your jist thinking of the rong kind of vinyl. Cuz vinyl ledders=cuter. But vinyl floors=gross. THE RIME IS ABOUT FLOORS!

See, you have nuff stress what with the holidays and the prechure of a hunny with nasty tests. It's time to just relax and do sum shopping. A pair of shoes will fix this all!!

luv u!!

manderskids said...

Don't frett-- FINAL is like VINYL!! A little hard to apply, but SO WORTH IT in the end!! See? Not so bad! Oh, and don't forget the GCs for some yum-yum fro-yo!!

Janelle said...

I can't beleeve you forgot a rhyme. Up there with flirt to convert is "date to reactivate".

MaryBeth said...

You know, I had cancer once. Actually, it might have just been one of Rick’s finals. The details have faded, but not the pain. Good luck!

hairyshoefairy said...

All my mom friends in med/biz/law/dental school went home to stay with their families while their hubs were doing finals. Such a great way to be supportive - from a distance.

The Bradley's said...

I'm glad your been sure to be servicable to your husband at this time. That is oober important. As for the gifts, you totally need some vinyl for the nursery. Then again that's for the feti so it doesn't count towards your total. Maybe JJWT can by you a wetnurse for the feti so they get wondurful breast (ew) milk but you don't have to go all saggy. Then again, that's another one for the feti! Has he thought about buying you a house? I'm sure both your parents are just dying to give you money! Boo for yawners like me who have to make it on our own...BOARING!!!

Lynnette said...

"tender smug mercy"!!! LOL!

Nerd Goddess said...

TAMN, I thought you were getting "Forgotten Carols" on CD, because reading is so way hard, and that way you can listen to it without having to think too hard.

myimaginaryblog said...

I've heard childbirth is also harder to watch than to go through. So I guess JJWT's turn is next! I know that doesn't make it easier for you, though. Seriously so sorry. :( Maybe you could grab a few dozen girlfriends and go see Twilight about 20 times to help pass the time?

Rendy Tucker said...

Here's my list if you need any ideaz-

1. Lotsa super-tight crazy-embroidered-pocket jeans. (You know, the ones that cost as much as a car payment)

2. TONS of makeup -not that I need it. It's just that I'm way artistic and it's like my face is my canvas. Plus I want my eyes to look like shimmering butterflys.

3. A designer diaper bag. Because Pooh=gross and Winnie the Pooh=grosser.

4. One of those "flirty" aprons from the mall so I can look uber-hott when I'm cookin/deliverin all my famous treats to the neighborhood. You know, "spread the gospel" and cheesecake bites.

Jessica said...

So I totally fasted and prayed about the whole Final and Vinyl thing and the answer is as clear as the polish on my french manicure...you need to get a new vinyl that says "Endure to the End" 'cause that's totally what finals are all about right? You're inspirational!

Scrap Happy said...

Tender smug mercy. Seriously. LOVE it.

Whitney R said...

Finals are kicking my Trash. JJWT and I are sharing the stress. But for some reason my spouse doesn't care to go out and splurge. I tell him to go stalk up on some banana suits and Italian leather shoes and he just laughs at me.

I don't mind, more for me as soon as this week is over.

Kim said...

MY hubby hooked me up with the best prezent EVER! I get to model for a world-reknowed and super spiritual way famous artist. She's painting the nativity and I get to be MARY! The most righteous woman ever! It's totally gonna be desplayed at temple square and its gonna launch my modeling career!!!! I'm sure you model for the New Era all the time though...

jlk said...

Soda fountain with Diet Coke and Diet Dr. Pepper, and Diet Sprite for when the RS Pres comes over.

emily said...

i'm sure you already have a wii, but you can never have 2 much of a good thing right? right. wii and guitar hero 3&4 is on my list, along with argyle socks from jcrew ('cause they rock, nice and long so they don't end up around my ankles like grams), gift cards galore, lucky jeans 'cause we all know they make a bad ____ look good, so if you have a good one they make it look that much better;-), a furry zip up sweater vest that angelina and brad will be jealous of if i see them at sundance, and books books books 'cause i seriously love to read into the wee hours of the morning. i find that watching the hills reruns while my hubby studies for his finals very rewarding btw;-)

Lola said...

Omg. Tamn. You should ask for a scrapbook, so that you could make one of your dahling twins! Or one of you and J.J.W.T's wedding.....or one of just you.

Heidi said...

So, question: when people put clothes on animals, real or stuffed, at what point do you consider the animal to be "immodest"? If I bought a tank-top-wearing My Little Pony for a niece would that be immoral? Thanks Tamn!

Lara said...

Token Asian Friend, I hope you mean CAFEEN FREE Diet Coke, or else I have a feeling that you're not in toon with the hole richeous wave.

CutieFruity/TaylorFam said...

don't be BITTER, get out the GLITTER!!!

Allison said...

Darling BFF - Why wait until you birth the babies to upgrade that diamond? You deserve to jump at least 1 1/2 carrots for patiently supporting JJWT through finals! (You know, I've always thought you've been so sweet about not being afraid to flash your ring even though it's only like, what, 3 carrots? I couldn't have made you feel bad even if I tried when I showed you my simple 4 carrot number.) You are totally the greatest friend, TAMN. I can't wait 'til 2:30 today! ANTHRO!!

Luv ya, babe - LISH (Lisa/Isabelle/Susie/Hannah)

Jules said...

I feel so blessed to have come across this blog. It is so uplifting to read it! I live in Indiana. It is like such a challenge to live so far away from Zion. I mean, hardly anyone here get married before 19...lots of girls go on missions because they WANT to (versus landing some hot stud muffin) and they say words weird... (fEEl instead of fill. It's like they're almost saying feet....nasty un-pedicured feet.) You're awesome and great. It is so great you know how blessed you are.

Your new e-BFF, jules.

Kristine said...

you should start stalking up on all your bow making supplies. doesn't every little utah girl have at least 200 of them? you better get crackin!

Melinda said...

I think it's so seriously awesome that you have such an attitude of gratitude! I hope you get all the tender smug mercies your little heart desires!

The only thing on my list that I don't see on yours is Greg Olson wallpaper. I seriously will have the most righteous living room in Happy Valley by this time next month!

Oops, don't mean to gloat!

Lindsey said...

I am shocked you are even sticking around to watch JJWT endure his finals instead of starting the holiday partying early by going off to visit your fam in Zion!!

Diane said...

You need to stay busy. How about knitting some so cute booties for your twinkies.

Tori said...

Great Blog! I saw an article in the newspaper about it and had to read it. It makes me laugh, thank you!

Breanne said...

I guess there is supposed to be opposition in all things? Even things that are supposed to be awesome rhymes like final and vinyl. Sad, but true.

Kayleigh said...

You definitely need some sort of GC to a fro-yo place.

Allison and Mason: said...

Girl... I am just curious if you have been enlightened yet with this product... I feel like this is a secret that only you could fully enjoy.

Just saw your twitter. Poor baby. Just think, next time he has finals it will be like your a single mom! You will def have to go stay with your parents then! Why not take all your YW out for some fro-yo? I know it's a school night but their parents won't care...and if they do too bad!

P.S. - Don't forget to give the receipt to the bishop!

Shlepn7 said...

You def need to be the first wife in the club to get a bump-it from bighappyhair.com

Allison said...

Well, I'm getting a trip to Florida. Since I have zero kids or fetuses I'm not as righteous as u so u should ask for a trip to Hawaii maybe. It's a good reason to show off ur tiny baby bump in a brand new modest bikini!

Sue said...

Tender smug mercies are totally the best kind.

Classic.

Michael and Cordie said...

Finals suck, I hear ya, except I can't afford to shop, you really are the most blessed girl ever. OH to be you!!!!!!!
