Whoa!

Apparently, Thanksgiving, visiting relatives, a nasty cold followed by a stomach virus, and frantic Christmas decorating and shopping cause me to fall right off the face of the internet. Who would have thunk it? My google reader has a thousand un-read blog entries, and I have not blogged myself in so long that I can only assume that you all thought I was dead. If you even noticed, that is. But I like to imagine that you were all out of your minds with concern for my whereabouts, because that's just the kind of woman that I am. Feel free to tell me how much you missed me, and in between running back and fourth to the bathroom, I will feel free to feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It's a win-win situation.

But sadly, I'm not really back. Not with anything relevant to say, that is. Unless you count "OH MY GOSH DO YOU REALIZE HOW LITTLE TIME I HAVE LEFT TO GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS?" as relevant, and I do not. But at least, despite all of the holiday panic and rumbly, upset tummies my family has remained fairly agreeable. As Owen so tactfully pointed out the other night while eating a take-out hamburger, "This thing tastes like a dog peed on it! But...I'll eat it anyway."

I'm thinking of making that our family motto.

So glad you're still alive. Though it may sound like you don't agree with that from all your sickness. Hope you feel better soon!

And I'm ignoring how close it is. Denial. It's the only way.

That is pretty much my favorite quote of the year. Owen rocks!

Glad to see you back and so sorry for all the viral affection! And, um, yeah, I'm still living like it's August. I wandered some stores yesterday and did not return Christmas shopping victorious--hmmmmm....maybe the kids would like a new refrigerator this year, something like that.

Blessings!

I noticed that you and Antique Mommy and several others had gone AWOL... not too surprising at this time of year. Glad you are better.

I totally LOVE the animated character on your blog that waves to me - now she's got the holiday spirit!

LOVE the new family motto! It would totally fly around here. Well, if there was anything to eat. I've just cleaned out my frig and realized my kids really meant there was nothing to eat. Lol.

Hannah said...

Hope you are better soon. That bug is floating around here too.

We had a little visitor that said my grapes tasted like a cat had farted on them. Little boys imaginations. Puzzling.

Ha! I love boys, good thing because I raised 2 of them! Or they raised me? Anyway, I did wonder where you were, hope you feel better soon.

Funny story! I have watched kids in my home off and on for about 9 years. I have such a hard time taking care of my own kids when they are sick. Someone else's sick kid kind of puts me over the edge. Funny stuff! Oh, how I can relate!
