I am not feeling so well this week. And
Or just hang around. Yes please follow me, don't just subscribe (though subscribing is better than nothing), because it makes me feel good to see my numbers go up. And it makes PayPerPost clients want me to review their stuff and write articles. Which helps pay for the diapers when I'm using disposables. like now.
And you know I cannot avoid you. Especially when I'm sick. When I'm sick, I find very little energy to do housework and errands. I do, however, find boat-loads of things to talk and blog about.
Like: Ginger Ale combined with raw cabbage makes a horrible gastric burning sensation from my mouth down to my small intestine. note to self: Never eat them in the same sitting again. never.
Also I'm craving soy sauce today. No, I do not have the desire to open the bottle and drizzle it in. But I'm thinking California Roll sushi with a bit of ginger dipped in soy sauce, hold the horseradish sounds PERFECT. hmm... Where's a Danny when you need him?
You know what?
When I took Gabbers and her friend to afternoon kindergarten today the police SUV's and the base fire engine and crew were blocking off the road in front of the school. The Security Forces explained to me that there was a very small gas leak and they are not allowing anyone into the school. The children that were already there have been evacuated.
I did not blurt out, Where is my son?! I want my son right now. I should've pulled them from public school already!!
No, I put on my happy, mommy is calm (definitely not hormonally imbalanced) and everything's fine face and parked two blocks from the school while contemplating just what to do.
In less than 30 minutes things were resolved enough to allow the kindergarteners to be escorted to the emergency evacuation area of the school grounds and proceed as "normal."
We have had our gas shut off for the day. I am amazed at how many people have to eat out when there's no gas. Really? You were going to use the oven and now you don't know what to do? Cereal people. cereal.
We had a fantastic gourmet meal of microwaved chicken nuggets and canned corn. No ketchup. I can't stand the smell of ketchup right now.
Very old picture of Bun from October 2006.Also I need a new email address. I gave my email address to someone the other day and they said, "You just hoping California turns into a frozen wonderland?" No. I think not. Yeah, I'm still thinking of a new email address for the blog. Thoughts?
I'm going to rest as soon as I get my daughter off to afternoon Kindergarten. You know it's quite easy to rest with only an almost 3-year old Gremlin, wannabe-crawling twins in the house and a determined 4 1/2-year old who can be bought with a coupon for Starfall.com time. Starfall, what a lifesaver you are.
Starfall did save us yesterday. They may or may not have exceeded their 30 minute Starfall time yesterday while I desperately tried to convince the twins to nap at the same time.
I also rested today while Gabbers was at Daisies and Pookie was at a friend's house. I felt guilty falling asleep on the couch. One baby was in the activity center/bouncy toy, the other was in the walker in locked mode, Hammy was napping and Bun was painting. The guilty part was that Tater, in the walker was crying this sad, "I'm so very tired and can't bring myself to fall asleep" cry, and I could NOT drag my butt off the couch. Of course when the crying stopped, and we're talking a full 10 minutes later, that woke me up and I saw him passed out in his toy. I hope he still feels loved.
