Fairly Odd Mother

Frantically waving my magic wand to make wishes come true.

Stream of Semi-Consciousness

Wait, is that snow? OK, maybe not snow but freezing rain? WTF???? It is April 15th, 7:30am and I am seeing hail bounce off the back patio. L-O-V-E-L-Y. I swear, if this hurts my fledgling little tulip plants that I planted on my hands-and-knees last fall, I will need to talk to someone higher up about this weather.

This wasn't what I popped on to say. I actually wanted to say "Thank You" for all the amazingly lovely comments you left when I was struck down by "The Strep". I'm feeling better, although I now have a hacking cough that forces Fairly Odd Father out of our bed in search of quieter sleeping chambers.

I also wanted to say that Belly is not here! For those of you who know us and our crazy sleeping habits, this is big news. Belly spent the night with my mom, and we did not receive a 10pm phone call from my mom begging us to pick up our screaming six-year-old. Either my mother gave her a shot of whiskey to shut her up or Belly went to sleep, just like that. You don't even know where my mind is going. The next time, I'm giving my mom Belly AND Jilly to see how they do. It is only a matter of time before I am dropping off ALL THREE CHILDREN at my mother's house and then driving home to Fairly Odd Father and I's first night together without the kids. I'm sure a night of such importance would have to involve sex out in the open, music blaring at 11pm, and lots of big frozen drinks. In other words, we could pretend we were 20-something again.

Finally, I need to say 'hey' to the sweet Nan of Alpha DogMa because I asked her to interview me so that I'd have something to break through this writer's block I'm experiencing. She sent me five questions, lickity split, and I have yet to answer them here. I promise to attack them next.

And, finally (how often can I say "finally"?), I want to stand up and accept my award from the kind Elizabeth of Table For Five who took pity on my awardless ass and gave me this:

Isn't it beautiful? Yup, I can now hold my head up high and say, "Why, yes, I am an award-winning writer".

Happy Sunday to you all. I hear little footsteps upstairs which are calling my name.

You'll get another award. I'm sure of it.

Glad you're feeling better!

I have found every time I plan to be 20 something again, I find myself in bed by 10pm. What is it about knowing there are no kids home that all you want to do is sleep?!

I don't know how grandparents get them to sleep, it's a special power that they have. I'd like to get the power, though!

When we're without kids, I always end up napping rather than acting 20-something. We might be lame, though.

WHEE HAW! I knew little 'bel could do it. I imagined the same thing (no NOT you having sex outdoors, etc.)-- dropping off both girls and then all three. Mom has a king bed, so she can wrangle 'em! Wait until we can drop off all five! heh heh heh... Hey, she wanted grandchildren!

I meant to call to find out how it all went (while we were out shopping and eating olives and chocolate brie), but one of us has been taking turns sleeping for the past 4 hours. It's so nice and quiet here. Too bad I have the chills and aches now-- if it's strep, I will surely cry...

Yay Belly!!! That is so wonderful! Hopefully that will translate to better sleep on the homefront...

I am pretty jealous of the drop-offability.

I'm totally digging that award. Glad you're feeling better.

And it's amazing. No matter how much sleep troubles the kiddos give us, they don't dish out nearly the same torture to their grandparents.

::sob:: I want frozen drinks.

No nearby family means no dropping off of children. I'm seriously considering flying him to Houston and leaving him with Grammie while nuttnHubby and I escape for a long weekend. I blame you.
