Under Quarantine

It's been one of those days - two days actually.

Motrin, Tylenol.
Wash sheets.
Motrin, Tylenol.
Snuggle.
Motrin, Tylenol.
Cold washcloth, ice chips.

Repeat.


This house is under quarantine. My little sick guy only wants to snuggle with his mommie, and I feel helpless because I can't make it all better.

Juggling working from home and mommie duty, dealing with the crazy dog that peed on my new rug (!!!!!!!), trying to stay away from the carbs (so hard to do when you're stuck in the house for two days) and keeping up with the laundry that piles up from upset tummies and showers - this day is finally done!

The crud is currently making its rounds at school, so I had a feeling this was coming. Walker is typically pretty resilient, but he's been pretty puny today. He actually fell asleep this afternoon leaning on my shoulder in the chair downstairs while I was on the computer. I shut down shop and took him upstairs for a nap.  He woke up and wanted to know what day it was. He thought he'd slept through the night. Poor little guy.

He's snoozing away now, snuggled beside me, and still feels warm. I'm praying that the fever will break tomorrow and we'll be back to normal soon.

Mike's turn to stay home tomorrow. I've already left him a list of what to do when the fever spikes.

He's no mommie, but he's the next best thing.

  10. Something has really been going around lately, it's making its way thru our house right now. And what's with the word "puny"? Must be a southern thing?

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
