Hot Stuff

For the past week my kids have been sick.  Poor little dudes have had fevers ranging between 100 - 103.5  YIKES!  It was a weird fever too.  Lasted about 3 days and now they are plagued with colds.  Thankfully there was no projectile vomiting, volcanic poops or anything else that would require you to wear a Hazmat Suit for.  Just moaning and whining that drive me to want to stuff my head in the toilet and flush until it pops off.

Now the Hubby is sick as well.  I'm semi over the last sickness that took me hostage for a month and just waiting patiently for a certain punctuation to attack, so hopefully I won't get sick at the same time, or I tell ya....I'll be one grumpy bitch!  Not that there's much of a difference from my regular, daily self.

I feel so bad for the kids as they are waking up at all times of the night with one issue or another.  Whether it's coughing, sneezing, losing a blanket or just wanting Mommy or Daddy to tell them everything will be just fine.  It's usually Mommy who goes into their room in the middle of the night as Daddy has to work in the morning.  I'm glad that the weekend is near, so I can sleep in.  It takes a toll on the body not getting proper sleep.  I'm basically used to it, but it sure picks the worst times to catch up to me.  You know, when I actually have things I NEED to get done and now I can't do them because I have accidentally gouged my eyes out with my toothbrush.  Do you even KNOW how many toothbrushes I have gone through in the last six months?

Glad to report that the kids spirits have somewhat lifted and they are getting back to their regular selves.  I'd say normal, but no one in this family is normal.

All this talk about sleep and here I am, 4:40 am, yapping away when I could be useful, sawing logs into nice side tables with chairs, where I would sit drinking my coffee, watching sheep endlessly jump over that fence that seems to grow taller and taller, making it harder and harder for the sheep to jump over, so they tumble into a nice fluffy pile on the ground which resembles pillows where I need to go rest my head.

Wow...All of that in one breath!

It's that time of year folks.  Time to make promises to yourself that you know you won't keep. You know it's true too...No need denying.  Most people I talk to about this all say that they have made resolutions for the New Year, but for some reason or another couldn't follow through.  Some strange, mysterious "thing" came up, yadda, yadda, blah, blah, blah.

Congrats to those who CAN keep their resolutions.  Really, I mean that.  I cannot seem to do it.  Almost every time that I come up with things I want to accomplish, do or see in the new year, BOMB on me.  I don't know if it's the lack of trying and/or focus or that life just does get in the way.  The ONLY thing I am successful at is procrastinating.

So, there is my New Years Resolution...To Procrastinate!  Maybe, just maybe, I can do some reverse psychology on myself and actually get things that I want to do, DONE!

In all seriousness, there are things that I would like to do in the New Year.  I won't bore you with the details right now as I am still sorting things out.  

However, I do hope you all have luck with your resolutions and will get to accomplish what you planned for yourselves.  I, on the other hand will continue to stumble and flail about, but that's ok...It's what I do best!

Useless Facts

I haven't been feeling all that smart as of late, so I have decided to expand my learning some.  Let's just say that all I can seem to come up with is a bunch of fluff.  I've been looking for things to talk about and I have come across nothing but stupid, useless facts.  Some, which are pretty funny and others that are interesting as I've never heard of them before.  So I guess I did learn a little something in all this.

Did you know that Turtles breath through their BUTTS?  I hope I never need CPR from a turtle.  Or that fingernails have the SAME ingredients as fly poop?  I guess I'll be thinking twice before biting off that mangy hangnail.  Ewwww!  And folks, feel free to stick your tongue out at a crocodile, for they cannot do it back! Oh, and if that happens to piss them off, RUN!  Run in zig zags for they may be able to run fast, they are not agile enough to zig zag with you and will fall behind.

There!  I may have just saved a life or two!

Here's something to ponder on...

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is the fear of long words.  To be honest, if I saw this word coming after me, I'd be pretty scared of it too!  Can anyone even pronounce this?  Personally, I would have taken this word as a fear of Hippos or something like that.
