I am posting a bit earlier than usual today. About an hour ago I got that tickle in my throat that might very well mean I’m down for the count for a few days. I seam to be declining quickly and this would totally explain the fact that I got NOTHING done today. Thought I’d go ahead and post so I can keep my streak going… and at least have done SOMETHING.
First, I forgot to tell you the limeade part of yesterday’s blog. I bought some limeade at the grocery when I had some girlfriends over for book club last week. To my surprise and joy, I liked it (as did many of my friends) but no one in my family does. You can’t know the joy of having something that is mine and mine only. I can leave it there for 4 days and it will be there when I go looking for it. I can drink it all in one day and no one will complain. It’s mine and mine alone. About the only other grocery item that this pertains to is mint chocolate chip ice cream. The kids would love to eat it, but they know not of it’s existence. My husband calls it “mouthwash” and never touches it. I can safely assume that if I buy it, I will be the only one to consume it. I now have two things all to myself.
Some funny things since I’m pretty brain dead:
Maggie has picked out her birthday cake (birthday not until June, mind you, turning 5) from the grocery store. It’s a three layer WEDDING CAKE. If we are already picking out wedding cakes for birthdays, what in the world kind of wedding cake will she want…I have a feeling we’ll be planning one helluva wedding when that day eventually arrives. So we look at it, now, every time we grocery shop. I haven’t figured out how I’m going to talk her back into cupcakes this year.
In the car the other day:
“Mom, do babies come from factories where they have a lot of bones?”
Nicholas has stopped (for the time being anyway) eating used Q-tips. Can you think of anything much more gross than that? (Gross that he was eating them, not gross that he stopped.)
That’s it for today. Hopefully I just need a good night’s rest and some Emergen-C. And for this election to be over so I can resume my normal schedule. Either that or move out of the country.
