Sludge

Ever have a day when you feel like you're trying to walk and think through a bowl of jello? Today I have been absolutely foggy. My glands are just starting to sting a bit, and I don't quite have a headache, but the muscles or whatever right being my eyes are thinking about hurting--if that makes any sense. Bottom line, I'm getting sick, again, and I hate it.

Every day that Sophie goes to school, she comes home very needy and demanding and whiny. She says to me in this sing-song whiny voice, "Mommy! Somebody did somefin'" whenever Jimmy even looks at her. She needs snacks and help and attention and she needs them NOW. I know that she enjoys school and it's good for her--but being around other kids (who unlike her are NOT perfect and well behaved--ha) and not getting the one on one adult time that she's used to can result in a perfectly bratty afternoon.

Luckily she's in bed and I just spend 45 minutes doing this. In truth, I am pretty addicted to Zam-Bee-Zee right now. It's like ultra Boggle for one. Word games suck me in every time.

So--I'm totally rambling and need to shut up and go to bed. First, a hefty dose of vitamin C--like that's going to do anything--and then I'll read in my new book (Dropped 30 bones on the new Outlander hardback, but I gots to have me some Jamie. If you have a billion or so hours to spare, and like historical fiction and sex with sexy Scotts--check it out.)

Today's best thing about being a mom:
Umm. How about feeling justified in going to bed at 9:00?

Today's worst thing about being a mom:
Whining.

Hope you got some rest and you are feeling 110% better. Being a sick mom sucks REAL HARD.

I just love sophie. she's like the quintessential child. "somebody did somefin" - it doesn't even need to be more articulated than that. that's the crux of the issue, somebody did somefin.
