Just As i Am...



this week has started off promising.
Monday started off with needing to take laken to the doctor. only, his Doctor (a sorry excuse for a pediatrician) is on vacation until December 5th. Nobody should be allowed to take a two week vacation and close down their office. Keep your PA there or your nurse practitioner. The Doc that is covering for mine, conveniently doesn't accept Laken's insurance. So i call the urgent care centers, the nasty ass clinic, the medical school here, and finally, i'm told "you should probably take him to the ER." and that was my only option. So we sat in the ER for almost five hours. my child is super smart. he understands the situation. And!!!! he has croup. that's right. good ol' croup. the virus that has to run it's course. i'm so sick of hearing that. yeah. well... can it run it's course after xmas? i'll have time then.

humidifier. check
vicks vapor rub. check
pedialyte. check
guilty conscience because i can't really BE there. more than check.

now... onto the time sucker

ok ok ok
i know you've had enough with the Christmas Carol talk. but we're in dress rehearsal. it's fan friggin' tastic!!! my director rawks all the time. i want inspiration like that. tomorrow is final dress rehearsal. this show is moving. funny. scary. entertaining. tightly secured with black capri spandex. and full of christmas fun. tongue in cheek

i told you at the beginning of this post to consider this your warning. this my dear friends are SHEEP'S BRAIN!!!

and if you're not watching 3 lbs. on TV. do it. tivo, dvr, vhs. get it done!

anyway i got to play with brains today. and i only put this on here because i think everyone should be awarded this opportunity. honest. it's not only a learning experience. but something phenomenol in itself to know that you're holding the Control Panel for Kingdom Anamalia in your hands... It's very empowering.

.... and stinky

sheep have tiny brains. about a portion size worth of mashed potatoes. frogs brains is about the size of the tip of your pinky. no lie.

and ladies, men actually do have bigger brains than females. damnit! i don't even have a witty remark for that.


enough of my rambling for the day!

you know you are a real mom when you have

the guilt.

if, at anytime, you don't have

the guilt,

then you are doing something wrong.

because you MUST have

the guilt

if you want to be in the *real mommies* club.

We have bigger brains than women only because we store so much useless information ... and we also need the extra space to keep those memories of the hundreds of thousands of naked women we've downloaded from the internet.

So don't feel bad about the size difference.
