please don't let me be misunderstood

Joey and I have America's Top 40 on. Of course, it's the countdown from 2/18/78, but that makes it more fun. I feel like shit. We're still sick, and now my bladder is acting up. Just what I needed. Anyway, here's what's happening here:

* It's snowing, again. I had kind of hoped that we had seen that last of it. I love snow, but my driveway was frozen solid for almost 2 entire months. Enough now. Let's move on.

* My feelings get hurt easily, I know. I way too sensitive. But still, it really upset me to realize that I wasn't invited to a wedding that I had stupidly assumed I would be. I guess you're not always as close to people as you think. Please don't show me all of the stuff for the wedding and then leave me of the list. That's hurtful.

* I have another friend that's MIA. I mean she's there, but only when she wants to be, it seems. So, I guess I'll stop holding my breath. I was starting to turn blue anyway.

* I'm taking a ridiculous amount of cold, flu and sinus meds. Nothing is working.

* Joey has been horrifyingly clingly for days now. He literally screams just about every waking minute that I'm not holding him. He doesn't want Daddy or his brother, just me. It's making me crazy. I mean seriously crazy. I put him in the crib the other day and just sobbed in the shower. Mama needs a break, and a stiff drink. Alas, no money for booze.

* If work doesn't pick up for Joel soon, we're going to be screwed. I'm the queen of budgeting and bargaining, but I can only do so much. I don't want to make anymore cuts. I DO NOT want to give up my premium tv or dsl internet. I'm home all day, and these are the only things helping to retain my sanity. I NEED them.

* I'm crying. I do that a lot lately. Too much stress and whining and sickness. Did I mention that I may be going crazy?

* It's just about naptime. I need one too, and a drink. A tall one.

gooey and green

Greetings from the land of snot, and a host of other gross germy things. I've been MIA online and in real life due to the cooties that have taken over our home. It started last Monday. Joey threw up overnight both Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday night I started throwing up and, um, losing it from the other end as well. Unfortunately, we had infected my mom as well. Joel was at work byt the time I realized how very sick I was, so poor Ethan had to stay home and take care of Joey. I couldn't do a thing but run for the bathroom. I slept from 5pm on Thursday until 9am Friday. I was that exhausted. Friday, Joey woke up with a head cold, which my poor dad got as well. Mom and I were both a bit off, but managed to run a few errands. Saturday, Mom woke up sick again and Joey threw up his cup of milk. That was the end of dairy for him for a few days. Joel got the cold on Saturday. Joel never gets sick. Everyone was doing ok Sunday. Joel, Joey and Dad had the cold, but none were too bad. Monday I got the cold and so did Mom. It's still lingering for me, Mom and Joey, but it's tolerable for the most part.

That's whats been happening round these parts. Exciting, no? I have a list of things to do today, but nothing major on the slate. I need to figure something out for dinner. I have ground beef and chicken. Hmmmm.

almost a month

* Tomorrow is not only my 30th birthday but it also marks the one month anniversary of being smoke free!

* I like doing my randomness with bullet points. Ok, technically they're asterisks.

* I gained 10 pounds since I gave up my Curves membership. Yikes!

* Joey tried to kill us both today. (himself by almost diving down the steps face first, me by the corrseponding heart attack)

* My foot pain is getting worse daily.

* I really need to get to the post office but my anxiety has me homebound today. I hate this.

* Joel and Ethan want pasta and sauce for dinner. I was planning on brats, hot dogs and fries. Hmmm.

* I want the ice gone from my driveway.

* I'm getting nothing done during Joey's nap today.

* Did I mention that tomorrow I turn 30?!?!

* I selfishly think I should get spectacular gifts this year. If I have to turn 30, I should be well rewarded.

* I'm having a bit of an issue with 2 of my friends. It's disappointing.

* That's all. Class dismissed.
