Easter was nice this year. Kiddo had a good one and got a nice Easter basket from the bunny dude. We didn’t have any family dinners or gatherings so munchkin and I went to the park for the day and had a nice time. Today started off good and then did a bit of a flying flop. I can’t seem to get it together. Its … Continue reading too tired to think of a title
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,
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
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
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
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
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
This weekend I mean. I’m sick yet again. Its my bi-monthly sinus infection. Welcome Back Snotter and all that jazz. I’m sure the clinic will just throw amoxicillin at me since I’m a regular. I’m wondering if a visit to an ENT or some such is in order. And don’t faint, but I am THIS close to trying that neti pot thing that my friends … Continue reading kind of the pits
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
today was rather craptastic and disappointing i must say. i finished my wonderful book club book last night and had grand plans to go to the gym in the morning, go to bookclub, then playdate for kiddos with friends, then lunch with same friends. none of this happened. i woke up and felt awful in various ways. i think i have a sinus infection and that … Continue reading so sew so sew
very frustrating doctor appt with sam. waited over an hour after appointment time. sam was bored and cranky and pitched the classic stomach to the floor kicking and screaming tantrum. three times. the good news is that she’s better, just have to continue the meds until they’re gone. so, onward. Continue reading ok, and again
what up world? things might be calming down in some aspects in our household. sam is much much better, thank the lord and antibiotics. i take her back to the doctor in a couple of hours for a follow up but all seems well and she went back to day care yesterday with no problems other than buckets of snot and coughing her cute lil … Continue reading hai
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
Oh, so I’ve gotten several questions about what in the world was I doing, where did I hear of such a thing, you are a crazy person…regarding putting Vicks Vapor Rub on Sam’s feet at night to help with the congestion/coughing. I read about it once on a mommy message board but never tried it until last night. And you know what? It did seem … Continue reading the vicks thing
I mean, its been a couple of weeks right? About time to be sick again. Daycare called me about 2:30 today. Sam had a 101.1 (that point 1 is very important, heh) fever, cough had worsened, not eating and very fussy. Poor kid is miserable but has her chipper moments still. She ate a bit of supper and I got her in her jammies. Early bedtime … Continue reading sick again. go figure.
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
Hey ya peeps. So i’m back in tn. NYC was all kinds of fantabulousness, as you’ve probably gathered by now. I’ll post some pics here later maybe but we’ll see. Most of you saw them on Twitter but since I can’t convince all of my friends and family to get on the Twitter bandwagon I’ll probably be nice and put some over here. Because I am … Continue reading i’m back. in black.
I have a headache of the most massive proportions. It’s been a helluva weekend. And not in a good way. The Accountant’s grandfather passed away on Friday morning. The funeral is a few hours away tomorrow. Then tonight, his grandmother (other side of the family) tripped over a cat and fell and hit her head on a step. She is really busted up and has some … Continue reading when it rains…Updated….
Good – My self diagnosis is that I do not have swine flu. I lost 7 pounds because of the non-swine flu. I feel some better. I will never eat pizza from Target again. Bad – I had to go back to work today. I have a headache from not eating for well over 24 hours. I am very queasy and weak. I had to … Continue reading good and bad
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?
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
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
I can’t breathe. For whatever reason, my asthma has decided to go into overdrive this weekend and it feels like the proverbial elephant is sitting on my chest. I hate that tightness, the vice-like grip on my lungs. I haven’t had a spell in a long time so of course, I was all out of my inhaler. I wheezed on over to our walk-in clinic and … Continue reading yeah, breathing is nice
First of all, a big thank you to all my great friends and family who have checked up on us and Sam. Hugs and love all around. 🙂 I’m home with her today and she has been in a good mood and doesn’t seem to feel bad. I still haven’t gotten a call from the doctor’s office yet to tell us what the culture said … Continue reading sam update
quick update…sam has a skin infection…think its msra but the full results from the culture haven’t come back yet…been a bad few days with multiple doctor trips and sick baby…luckily hubs and i have jobs that are understanding and we’ve been about to take turns staying home with her… i have a headache…minor problem i know…larger problem is that i also am in need of … Continue reading feel like i’ve been talking about this for days
