My kids and I have invented a new game called "jalopy!" We started this game because I am the owner of a jalopy. It is similar to punch bug but you are supposed to find the oldest, crappiest and ugliest vehicle on the road. The game is ongoing and can go for days, weeks, months or even years. At this point I am winning with a truck that we drove by a few weeks ago. In order for it to qualify it has to be old, rusted and ugly. The only hitch is everyone in the car has to agree that it is a jalopy. (You have to be honest!) It is much more fun than boring old punch buggy and nobody gets hit in the process!
It is almost 6:30 in the morning. I have been up since 4:00 because I am getting a damned cold given to me from my germy children. I am supposed to get the flu shot tomorrow. Can you get the flu shot when you have a cold? In other news my son has a really bad infection in his thumb. He showed it to me yesterday and (don't read any further if you are eating or have a weak stomach) it was all fiery red with pus. Ag. I had to drain it and it was so damn gross. After I got it clean it still looked infected so I took him to the drop-in clinic sans cat. The doctor said the infection was under the nail and put son on antibiotics. He said I would probably have to drain it again. This sounds easy but I gag when I brush my teeth and eat pudding and those are supposed to be nice things! Times like this I would like a man around with a strong stomach.
Ok, I am going back to bed. I hope you all have a great and restful Sunday.
And later still on Sunday afternoon...I am now feeling quite lousy. I was out shopping and I...felt nature working in my intestines. I had to leave the craft store now! I knew I wouldn't make it all the way home so I stopped by my mom and dad's. My mom was having a bath and I had to run in on her. There is nothing more humbling that pulling your pants down and shitting while your mom laughs her ass off while sitting in the tub!

She is old now. One pocket is torn off and hanging by threads. She is no longer a pretty pink but a faded existence of her former self. The belt that keeps her closed was used by my son to tie something up and hasn't been seen for a better part of a year. She is really quite unattractive now, downright ugly actually. Threadbare and stained. I couldn't give her away, who would want her?

- Do you ever go to your mailbox and pull out the mail, look at it and stuff it all back in again?
- Do you ever wonder why you bother even trying to keep your house looking clean and orderly when your kids do stuff like this? (Yes that would be their new toothbrushes stuck to the bathroom mirror.)
- Do you ever look at all your dirty dishes and feel like throwing them all in the garbage and buying new ones because it would be easier than washing them?
- Do you ever feel like calling work and telling them the real reason you aren't coming in? You are not in the mood.

What a difference a day makes! I was off today and so enjoyed a day to myself. I got up early and took the kids to school. I came home and slept. Not just a little nap but a long 3 hour sleep. I have been burning the candle at both ends and really needed to snuggle down in my warm bed and just sleep. After my nice long sleep I got up and paid bills , paid the mortgage and read blogs. I then went and picked the kids up at school them went to Wal Mart and picked up a million things I had been desperately needing like socks, underwear and some sweaters for work. I even bought myself a vanilla candle just because! I came home and cleaned the whole house including laundry. (Still have dishes to do.) I am now going to put clean sheets on the bed and pull the electric blanket out of storage and put that on the bed too. I am going to go to bed early after a hot bath with my new candle. Yes. Feeling much better today! Thank you all for your kind comments. I really do love you all. (((hugs)))

On a brighter note I ordered this today! I can't wait for it to get here. I adore Snoopy and Woodstock and have a tattoo of them on my ankle.
