So, I was thinking how boring this blog has been lately because there's really not a ton going on and I've been super crabby and I'm thinking of just doing a free-form type blog post and see what comes out and I'm telling you I need a shower so badly it's not even funny. I can't even tell you. Last week sucked the big one. Tukey had Hand, Foot, Mouth virus and was off school from Tuesday to Friday. Diva came home from school on Friday. Ajers puked and had the you-know-what's at 4 a.m. Saturday. And then just when Tukey gets over the virus, he does something funky to his knee (and this same thing happened to him in July when I took him to the ER and he couldn't put any weight on his knee) ... so I took him back to the doc, and this time it's HIS OTHER FREAKING KNEE and the little guy has CRUTCHES! And he's getting an MRI on Wednesday. So that's pretty fun. Not the MRI, but he likes the crutches.
So yeah, whatever. And there's so much work-work to be done and I'm a freaking sinking ship there, not really, in case any of my editors are reading, I'M FINE, REALLY GREAT, NOT PULLING MY HAIR OUT OR ANYTHING!, I'll get through it, but man, it's hard when there's a sick kid and then all this other stuff.
So see, this is what happens when I free-write and I tell you I could just go on and on and bitch and make your ear bleed, but how much fun would that be? Not fun. Boring. So I won't. Cuz then you'll stop reading. And I don't want you to stop reading. Cuz you guys are what keep me blogging. Seriously! I got the SWEETEST notes in the real-live mailbox from Dawn and Kirsten the other day and those made my week! Dawn, I owe you a CD and will deliver it soon, I promise!
I also promise I need to do another fun contest on Manic soon.
But in the meantime, head over to my other place on the Web, come on! Don't tell me you don't know where I've been! Yep, over at BettyConfidential.com because Allison Winn Scotch is over there giving away a copy of her NEW BOOK, Time of My Life, and it's a great read! Check out the contest/interview here!
And, I need to gear up for the second annual Manic Mommy Bloggy Blood Drive that'll be hitting the blog in January, so get those veins ready -- bigger prizes this year!
This weekend, I will have a chance to regroup and gain some perspective because I will quite possibly be spending my time in the fine company of any or all of the following:
b. Jess Riley
c. Jen Lancaster
d Stacey Ballis
f. Dane Cook
g. All of the above?
PS. Just threw in F to see who's all paying attention. I could really go for a combo E and F right about now! hahahah.
PS. I need a life coach.
And a shower.
