***Sunday's puke fest tried its best to get to me. I was a little under the weather Wednesday, not enough to throw up, but enough to not be able to eat- or even have ANY desire to. Instead, I got the body aches and tested the dosage limits of Aleve in a 24 hour period (FYI- 14 is OK.)
***I was actually on board with the whole sick thing- and was considering putting it in the permanent rotation of diet secrets (no throwing up, no appetite, just load up on Aleve every time I felt my fingers)- UNTIL- I got my appetite back today. I may or may not have bought a chocolate cake at the grocery store that my kids can't have- just sayin'.
***My sister called me several times today and yesterday to see how I was doing. How sweet, right- no, we're not. I thought that was really weird since she's kind of a bitch like me and really couldn't care less-UNTIL-she reminded me that I agreed to watch her daughter tomorrow. She is an adorably busy little terrorist who has a recent adoration for Sharpies. My sister has found her- the last three days straight- drawing on herself with them. I'm convinced she's doing it for the fumes, but whatever. In preparation of her arrival, I have confiscated all writing utensils, aerosol containers and glue bottles. She only has one VERY loud volume and is into everything... Since my recent yearning for another baby, I thought it was important I watch her, yep, that should put me in my place!
*** Could Dick Cheney have resembled Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life during the inauguration any MORE IF HE TRIED????
*** I suck at rules and contests... yada yada yada... BUT, my luck is a changin'...I won something- A gift card to Trader Joes! Wanna know how I did it- I worked my ass off- that's how! I jumped off of a roof and had to land on an exercise trampoline and I was the closest without going over. It's really the most exertion I've had since I've taken down my Christmas decorations- shut up- that was a lot of work! Go pay Lee a visit-she's a very cool West Coaster and has easy rules to follow (all I had to do was leave a comment for God's sake!) and she has pics of me being an adrenaline junkie.
***My parenthesis are becoming more pronounced and it's pissing me off. You know, the lines that surround your mouth that look just like parenthesis (if you don't know- you must leave or tell me your secret!) Someone has clicked the bold button on them and they are really driving me crazy.
