my stomach hurts.

Things have been kind of nutty lately, and there hasn't been much time for posting here on my bliggity.  Some good stuff, some bad news, my kid got bit by a dog (he's okay), an impending surgery for my other kid, complete exhaustion, and a little bit of this and a little bit of that. 

Know what I mean?  It's just been one thing after another.  I've had a lot on my mind and not a lot of time to organize the chaos into anything that would make sense for anyone to read. 

For one thing, I can't believe Christmas is so soon.  I was going to buy Theo a kitchen, but now we are thinking we'll wait until his birthday (March) because we don't have much room for one now.  Not that we will in March, but hopefully we'll be moving in the Spring.  See? More stuff to worry about (the move, not the kitchen).  So that was gonna be Theo's expensive big gift and now I don't know what his big gift will be.  Probably, I don't need to buy him anything big because he won't know the difference for at least another year or two.  Am I right?

Anyways, here it is...the week of Thanksgiving... I'm just feeling overwhelmed right now.  My husband is sick.  Theo has been coughing for almost three weeks.  I don't know - this time of year, everyone should be happy and healthy.  Why is everyone so grumpy and worn out and sick?? 

I'm nauseous.  My stomach hurts.  I think it's from all the snot drainage running down my esophagus from my throat.  Gross, huh?  See...I told you I'm not in my right mind.  I'll come back with something better than all this.  Prommy (promise).



  1. It's ok, Candice! Things will get better! I remember oh, so well anticipating the holidays only to have one or both my kids wake up on Thanksgiving and/or Christmas with 104 temp. that usually turned out to be strep throat. That was our sickness of choice most often. Trust me, some day you will look back and wonder where the time went (I do!!) because it seems like yesterday to me. Oh...and as I'm sure you have found out by now...moms aren't allowed to either be OR act sick! LOL Lots of hugs to you and your beautiful little family.
