I Went To Bed And Got Up Early For This?
Published on Monday, November 2, 2009 by This is my Monday so far: Sixteen year old is coughing up a lung due to pneumonia. Gave him three puffs of inhaler.  It didn’t work. Eight year old daughter has the Monday blues.  Cries, doesn’t want to get dressed, cries some more, holds her stomach and complains of stomach pain from crying (somewhat of an attempt to get out of school.)   I gave her...
From This… To That…
Published on Monday, October 26, 2009 by This weekend we were blessed with a “last hoorah” trip to Corolla.  Basketball is around the corner, taking up every Saturday and Sunday.  We didn’t care that Saturday was going to be rainy and cold.  After all, it is the BEACH HOUSE!  No stress, no germs, nothing but time.  Time to leave worries behind and to concentrate on getting better. To our GREAT ...
National Face Your Fears Day…. AHHHHHH!!!!
Published on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 by National “Face Your Fears Day.”  Yup, that was today!  First time I’ve ever heard of it.  The Kidd Kraddick morning show members talked about their own fears this morning, some of which I would not repeat here.  It made me think about my own fears and how they have changed over time. My biggest fear as a child?  That evil PART WOLF PART MAN that lived do...
Here’s To The Sprinklers
Published on Tuesday, October 6, 2009 by The weekend has turned over and the routine is back.  The incredibly HARD weekend, that is.   Although everyone is running through their regular paces, things are still a bit sad… a bit somber…. just not NORMAL yet. Yesterday I picked up my daughter from the after school care program.  The sprinklers were on in the playground field.  Elizabeth asked if she...
Saying Goodbye to Buddy
Published on Saturday, October 3, 2009 by About 13 years ago I agreed to take in a cat that was soon to be homeless.  His owner was sick and unable to care for him.  I’m more of a dog than a cat person, but was excited at the new member of our pet family.   His name was Buddy, and at that time he was estimated to be about five years old. Buddy was the coolest cat I’ve ever met.   He loved to ...
Join Me In The “I Hate Strep” Club!
Published on Thursday, September 24, 2009 by Last week the boys alternated sick days.  By Sunday my daughter was feeling sick.  There was no school Monday, but I had to take off work.  Her fever broke two days later, only to return yesterday.  Off to the doctor! Her throat was a bit red, so the doctor checked for strep.  Can you guess?  Positive.  Now for the fun part.  When I woke up that morning I w...
You Know You Are Old When….
Published on Friday, September 18, 2009 by Following my coffee run today, I have a little less spring in my step.  And a little less shake with dem fries. I'll call one of the guys who works at 7-11 "J."  He is a tall man, about 23 years old.  And frankly, he looks MUCH older than 23.  But that is probably sour grapes on my part. Earlier this week I noticed the Dark Mountain Roast was low.  J told m...
Sing With Me! Slow Down, Your Movin’ To Fast…
Published on Thursday, September 17, 2009 by This is the first thing I saw going into the garage at work today.  My son would say, "PONED."  The car sat there all day like this, the owner completely unaware of what their evening would bring. What happened?  Bottom line, someone was in a hurry.  The top left is the route people take to leave the garage.  Someone was rushing to get out and pulled that car'...
Will You Get The Swine Flu Shot? Oink Once For Yes, Two For No
Published on Thursday, September 10, 2009 by To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, that is the question.  Let's see what I can get stirred up in the pot with this one. I work in a hospital which is requiring everyone to not only get a flu shot, but to get a Swine Flu shot as well.  REQUIRING.  No shot, no job. When I first read about this policy I was concerned.  Has the H1N1 shot actually been tested?  W...
If You Laugh Too Hard, Will Your Head Pop Off?
Published on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 by The social experiment is complete.  I would tell you all about it but I am currently laughing too hard.  So hard that I am afraid my head will pop off. You might remember from my previous post that I was soon to meet up with my best friend from high school.  I had not seen her in 15 years.  Would things be the same?  Would things be different?  What if we don...
Will You Be My Best Friend? Check Yes or No.
Published on Friday, September 4, 2009 by This weekend has great adventures in store.  With STUPID school already in session, weekend beach house trips have pretty much come to a halt.  But tonight, come 9 pm we will be on the road, heading for the amazing OBX!  Woop! Woop! With the past two weeks of stupid school, I've already had two kids down sick.  The second is on the couch as I type - I hope he w...
Invisible Illness Awareness Week
Published on Monday, August 31, 2009 by Invisible Illness Awareness Week runs from September 14 - 20.  I recently found a "30 Things You Didn't Know" list that is tied to invisible illnesses.  I filled it out in support of the many people who suffer in silence, and dedicate this post to everyone with gastroparesis and Lyme disease.  I hate the fact that I am actually able to fill this out, due to my own ...
