It’s Always Something . . .

In the words of Rosanne Rosannadanna.

After the migraine attack of 07 (that’s what I’m calling last week), the stomach flu is now making its rounds in our household. I actually had one day where I felt good. Then Eric told me yesterday he heard there was a bug going around. I blame him and his evil powers of suggestion because by last night I was tossing my cookies.

That was a serious WTF moment. Can’t I be well for one freaking day? Come on!!! I feel better now, but all I have had to eat is one piece of toast. Nothing like massive stomach flu to help you lose weight. Now if I could just exercise, I would be in business. Too bad I don’t live close enough to go to Crazymumma’s gym. After reading her post, I am seriously considering the pros of a personal trainer. But with my luck, my trainer would look like Arvid from Head of the Class,

and not like Wentworth Miller.


Anyway, I am seriously concerned now about the children. Although Eli is as extroverted as ever and Georgia is running around screaming in all her naked glory, I have had no less than four people tell me today, “Well, since you have been sick, it will probably go around your whole house.” Quit jinxing it, you twisted f*cks! You people are supposed to be my friends.

Of course these are the same friends that kept calling me today when they knew I was trying to nap. I had the afternoon with Georgia napping and Eli at preschool to rest. After I lied down, the phone rang (are you ready) eight freaking times!!!

I don’t want to kill people. I really don’t. But eight damn times!! Are you f*cking kidding me?! So, if any of you are wondering why I haven’t left a comment on your blog, it’s because I’m waiting for Homicidal Mama to take a backseat to Normal Mama. Hopefully, that will happen tomorrow.

In the meantime, enjoy this Baby Blues comic that seems very approprié.

Bless your heart. I have a sick one here too. : (
I've been catching puke for the past two days. It's not fun.

awe i hope that the illness does not go to anyone else in your house and you feel better soon!

Awww, I hope you feel a lot better soon! Maybe it won't get everybody in the house. We've all just gotten better but with this damn weather we're having it probably won't last! I know what you mean about the phone ringing. Mine never does until I desperately need a nap and then it rings constantly! Here's to normal mama returning soon!

Hey, if the stomach flu does hit, a naked baby running around will make cleanup easy wont it?

I was sick a bit last week... its the after Christmas crap-ola thats been going around our area.

And I agree with you... my phone doesn't ring EVER until I lay down in bed to take a nap. Sons-a-bitches!

Love your blog!

By some miracle I didn't catch the stomach bug that Lee had recently, so I hope that the kids will be immune!
Oh I love that cartoon -- how funny is it that I can see this happening in your house?

ps: next time, unplug the phone (or turn off the ringer & on the answering machine) for your nap = you deserve it!!!

Hope you're not so homicidal today!

Girl, turn you ringer off. And drink lots of liquids. And feel better soon. ;)

I hope you feel better soon.

Btw, if I knew I could get a trainer that looked like Wentworth Miller, I'd be a devoted gym goer. And in much better shape........

I always thought Arvid was kinda cute...but yeah, not as cute as Wentworth. Rarrrww. I'm so glad you're feel better!
