Carol of the Zombie Jesus!

I realize that's a bit of a frank statement for some people, but the honest part is that it's TRUE: life has a tendency to be a bitch more often than not.

There's shopping to be done today, and so much cleaning and picking up to do that I'd be lying if I said I was happy to be awake. A couple of days ago I had a random, unpleasant experience involving vomiting at 1:30 in the morning, and for some reason I'm still relatively drained. I blame it on the fact that I haven't eaten breakfast yet - in fact, the only one of us that has eaten anything is the kid, and his breakfast consisted of a couple of bites of oatmeal and some milk. This child eats like a bird, and I'm surprised half the time that he hasn't just poofed out of existence after imploding on himself. There's nothing to him, if you just look at him, but he's actually a little above the 50th percentile for weight, which makes no sense because this child has BONES that you can SEE and FEEL. Mind you, most of this discomfort and complaining comes from an overweight woman that can't remember when she last wore something that wasn't considered "XL" or "plus-sized". Maybe it's a personal problem.

I think I'm going to do what I can to get the rest of the fam-dam going - Husband is playing Grand Theft Auto III with the kid in his lap, and none of us are even remotely prepared to "face the day". But at this rate, we have no hope of accomplishing anything if we don't get our exhausted asses in gear.

I'll likely hop back on later to say something snotty about Octo-mom.


I know days like this - for sure! We had some of our own vomiting issues not long ago - & drained is a good descriptor.

2 of my kids ate like birds (one still does, she's almost 5) and I know that the docs tell us not to worry. It's hard not to, though. My 14 year old was my other "bird" and now he eats a lot! Still can't get him to love healthy food, but he does eat so much more. He used to eat lots of spinach (of all things) when he was little. Now he won't touch it!

Thanks so much for dropping by & wishing me congrats on my granddaughter! She is . so . beautiful ! & I can't wait to see her in person!
