Dear Runkeeper,

Thank you for sending me this. However, I am in fact, NOT “bored with my routine”, as you so helpfully suggested. You see, I no longer have a routine, unless you count lots of sleeping, cupcakes, and mentally tripping the senders of these relentless running emails as they walk down stairs. So by all means, please, I insist, have a handful of Whoppers and some … Continue reading Dear Runkeeper,

sad panda goes to the doctor

Verdict: gained 10 pounds in a matter of weeks, change in meds, follow-up visit in a month, encouraged to seek therapy. Hello mid-life crisis. The next one that comes around I’m just going to buy a red sports car and be done with it. It sucks to know that the real you is so broken and messed up that it takes outside assistance to right … Continue reading sad panda goes to the doctor

in which i tell you what’s up

At this very moment I am “stealing” wi-fi from my local Sonic. These days its good business to ask “would you like free wi-fi with your tater tots”.  To be fair, I did buy food here (which I regret now but tomorrow is another day, another pound, so whatever). Kiddo would not take a nap today and I was going stir crazy which translates to … Continue reading in which i tell you what’s up

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor’s best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur (I will spare  you the details) and The Accountant really … Continue reading I can’t make this stuff up

the most boring post ever

Oy, what a weekend. Kiddo has been sick with stomach virus thing since Thursday. I’ll be staying home with her again tomorrow. Luckily, she seems to feel ok in between episodes and is eating and drinking fine. A call to the pediatrician yielded the usual advice of clear liquids, wash hands constantly, bland diet, it should pass within 7 to 10 days, etc. I’m crossing … Continue reading the most boring post ever

its 4am and I’m wondering

The oddest things occur to me in that drowsy state between having answered the call of “Mooooommy” and taking the dog out. Like, how did the person who names nail polish colors get that job? Is it a random and casual process or does a lot of thought go into the monikers of Cranberry Crush and Polynesian Purple? Is it something a marketing person comes up with while standing in front of the water cooler … Continue reading its 4am and I’m wondering

i fear the neti pot

I just went to the clinic for this yucky sinus stuff and yes, I have a sinus infection. I’m now armed with amoxicillin and instructions to go get mucinex and a neti pot or some sort of nasal irrigation/contraption/torture device. I’m good with the drugs, but the “take this thing that looks like a genie could pop out of it at any second and use it to pour liquid up … Continue reading i fear the neti pot

this happened to me today & i was super bummed

know what i hate? when oatmeal raisin cookies fool me and i think they’re chocolate chip cookies and i buy them looking forward to a yummy snack only to discover the awful truth when i bite into a perfectly good grape that has been shriveled up and is all wrinkly and chewy and sticks in my teeth. that sucks. just had to get that out. in other … Continue reading this happened to me today & i was super bummed

getting on with my bloggy bad self

I’m compiling a list of things that “They” don’t tell you about before you have kids of your own. The latest addition is that all members of the household will never be healthy at the same time ever again. We are constantly sick up in here. Sam is still trying to get over her latest crud and now The Accountant is really sick. In the … Continue reading getting on with my bloggy bad self

was it something i ate? or do i have swine flu?

I’m all gurgly. Is that even a word? Last night was brutal. I won’t go into details but suffice it to say that the toilet and I bonded over several hours. Stayed home today but will go in tomorrow since apparently I am indispensable and my health doesn’t matter as long as the damn work gets done. Just know that I have a particular desk … Continue reading was it something i ate? or do i have swine flu?

sicky sicky

Rought night last night. Sam woke up throwing up twice. 1:00 and 3:30 am. It was extremely gross of course and very concerning as she’s never done that before. She was so pitiful. She let me take her temp (which she HATES and usually fights me like a wrestler) and she was so pale and sad looking. I rocked and cuddled her both times and … Continue reading sicky sicky

yeah, i dunno either

Why I’m still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that that’s done, here I am. Today has been rather hectic, … Continue reading yeah, i dunno either
