That is all.
“Cancel the show!” I love Miss Piggy.
I Proclaim Today a Couch and PJ Day!
I have a cold and there is a Muppet movie marathon on TV. End of story.
Based on the Kleenex pile in my beside trashcan this morning, I would say it’s shaping up to be a cold and not the flu. Hooray! Who knew so much snot could make me so very happy?
I woke up this morning with chills, aches, and a scratchy throat. At bedtime I’m not feeling that much better. I hope it’s just a really bad cold because I kind of forgot to get myself a flu shot this year. Oops!
I hate that she will never take my kids outside to walk the garden wall or show them “Kruncher the squirrel” out of the kitchen window. I hate that her last years have been spent in the company of those who just want her money. And I hate most of all that the most crass and petty people on both sides of the family are the ones being appeased today.
It's Not That I'm Ungrateful
But I’m just not feeling Thanksgiving this year. As usual, my mom invited a whole host of people no one else in the family can stand and waited until the last minute to tell any of us. She also failed to invite my middle sister and her family at all. Lovely. I would boycott, but I’m supposed to bring the cranberry sauce.
Today's Biggest Achievement
Last week, I smashed my ring finger in the glass storm door at my mom’s while picking up my 15 month-old. On Monday, I scraped the knuckle on my index finger on the storm door at work as I tried to shove it open. (It gets stuck sometimes.) Yesterday, I bruised my shin pretty badly trying to keep our popcorn machine from tipping over as I wheeled it out of storage in preparation for next...
My Only Potter-related Post of the Day, I Promise
The problem with someone with an imagination like mine watching a movie as intense as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before going to sleep is that I am guaranteed to wake up at 3:30 a.m. groping for my wand on my bedside table so I can protect my babies from the Death Eaters who have come to get us for belonging to The Order of the Phoenix. You can imagine my disappointment when I found only...
Harry Potter Really CAN Do Magic
I went into the theatre with about 9 followers and came out with 17! (Thanks Toni, I adore you too!) We loved the movie, by the way. As if there was any doubt that we would.
Guess whose daughter volunteered her to bring the...
for the 1st grade class Thanksgiving feast next Tuesday on the same day that she locked herself and an entire school bus full of kids out of the museum where she works? That would also be me, of course. (It’s OK, the note says I can bring deli meat.)
Guess who is sitting in her museum's parking lot
with a busload of kids and 6 cars full of parents because she forgot her work keys and can’t open any of the buildings? That would be me, of course.

atfrageelay replied to your photo: 15 month check-up…and this is BEFORE the shots. I…I’m taking all 3 for flu shots today. Loading them in the van and not telling them where we’re headed till we arrive. Hold me. We can hold each other I’m taking myself to get one later today. Some holding would be good.
An Oft Repeated Phrase Here
“Baby girl, you would be really sad if you actually succeeded at what you are trying to do.” (As applied to the 15 month-old, the almost 13 year-old hasn’t hit the rebellious stage. Yet.)
From now on
Let’s just assume that if Joss Whedon was involved with it, I’m going to love it. Even if I do hate Sarah Michelle Gellar. (Guess who finally broke down and watched Season One of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?)
Totally Did It!
I can now check “wore my undies in public” off my bucket list. There are pics, but I like my job too much to post them.
