Happy New Year

I’m almost all better, but I’ve still got a runny nose. I finally went out yesterday, for the first time since I’ve been sick. I drove Jenny’s drunk ass around, and I had a blast. I should’ve known better than to go to any public places with her when she’d been drinking, though. She’s crazy, I swear, but in a good way.

I hope everyone has fun tonight. Be safe if you go out partying. I’m doing my regular New Year’s thing – staying home just as if it were any other night. That doesn’t bother me one bit, though, I had enough of crazy drunk people yesterday.


Cough, Snort, Blah

I am sick yet again. What’s up with me this year? I’ve never been sick this often before. Usually just twice a year. I sound like a barking dog when I cough, and I’ve got so much junk in my lungs that I feel like I’m smothering. My throat hurts and the glands in the right side of my neck are swollen and sore. I started gettin sick Christmas night, and I’m getting worse every day. I guess I’m going to have to go see my doctor, but I don’t want to, he’s an asshole.

I’ve been spending lots of time on the couch, and there’s been so much that I’ve been meaning to blog about, but I just don’t feel like getting up. I’ll be back when I’m all better.

I want it NOW!

I finally saw the first two Lord of the Rings movies last weekend. I tried reading the books when I was about 12, but I just couldn’t get into them so I didn’t think I’d like the movies. I loved the movies, and I was talking about them with my brother, and he told me that the books were so much better. It just so happens that he has the books, so I started reading them.

Well, I finished The Fellowship of the Ring this morning, and I can’t find the second one anywhere. I need more and I need it now! The kids are at their dad’s, and this would be the perfect time to read if I could just find that book. I tried going to the library, but it’s closed today. Why did it have to be closed today of all days?

Santa Babies

Merry Christmas, everybody!

A Long Night Ahead

I think I’m in for a long night. We were out all day today. Arien went to daycare, but Gracie was sick last night (had the same thing Arien did the other night), so she got to stay home. She and I went to Jenny’s house and stayed most of the day. We picked up Arien on the way home, and then went to my cousin’s house where Gracie played outside with her kids, and Arien ran around in the house. Then, we went to my dad’s where they played a while. We finally got home a little after five, both of them passed out, and they’ve been asleep ever since. I expect at least one of them to wake up any minute and be up for the rest of the night.

I need to go wrap the rest of the girls’ presents. Maybe they won’t wake up until I’m done. Last year when I was wrapping Gracie’s presents, she woke up and almost caught me.

Yep, this was basically just a filler post. I have nothing to say here lately. I almost wish there’d be some drama around here so I’d have something interesting to blog about. Pathetic, isn’t it?

no title today

I had a long post typed up this morning, but the power went out right as I was about to finish up. Now I can’t even remember half of the stuff I had said.

Last night was hell. Arien woke up in the middle of the night and started vomiting all over the place. Her bed, herself, the floor, me, and anything else around at the time. She was fine yesterday, a little crabby, but that’s nothing new. She wouldn’t eat much, maybe a couple of bites here and there, but she did eat so I wasn’t too worried.

She was awake and sick until I finally got her back to sleep around four this morning. She woke up about nine and she’s feeling like her old mischevious self again. If I hadn’t been there I wouldn’t have even known she’d been sick. I have no idea what brought that on, but I’m glad it’s over!

I was right

Arien doesn’t have pink eye. She does have an ear infection, though, so she’s taking antibiotics. It’s the pink amoxicillin, and she loves it. She always wants more when I give it to her, and cries when I don’t give her more. She likes pedia care, too. I just wish it was as easy to give Gracie medicine as it is to give it to Arien. Gracie screams and cries and tries to knock it out of my hand. I got some Elixsure, the really thick stuff that doesn’t come off of the spoon easily, and that took care of that problem. Now if I could only get her to stop making herself throw up once I get it into her mouth.

In other news, my friend Jenny has a blog now, so go check her out.
