The Joyful Grind


We are one tired little family today.  At any given time last night, at least two of us were up and about when we should have been sleeping.  Nightmares, wetting the bed, barfing...Oh.  My.


Sammy was the sick one.  Have I mentioned less than a million times just how much I despise having sick kids?  Hate it.  Thankfully, she's perking up already...eating toast and adamantly requesting "McDonald's apple juice" instead of the Pedialyte apple juice I'm serving today.  I'm just glad she has some fight in her!

And me...my brain is just flat messed up.  Hormone fluctuations were never my friend, but lately they make me positively inSANE.  I scream and cry and eat everything in sight...as long as I'm awake, but mostly I can't keep my eyes open.  I feel like an irrational teenager, but don't know what to do about it.  So far consuming lots of chocolate, guacamole and Coca-Cola seems to be the best medicine, but it's not lasting and it's not doing good things for the fit of my jeans.  Anyone know about that medicine "Yaz"?  I think I'll ask my doctor about it.

Trying to keep perspective here in my prison of no showers, an endless loop of irritating cartoons, screaming kids (who probably want to get out of the house as much as I do), and sick little ones.  

This too shall pass.

At least your snacks sound good. ;-)

I'm sorry you are having such a yucky day/week. We're having a similar one, but mostly just because I've been in a slump. I've got my music cranked now and having fun cleaning house with Amy now, so I'm feeling better. I hope all of you feel better soon, too.

I stopped by to tell you that I left you an award on my blog. Love you!

I love Yaz, I've been on it for about 5 months now...I only get a touch bitchy (Paul and I still can't tell if that's just regular old me or the hormones in the pills). It comes with my stamp of approval!
