Boogies, Fevers and Ouchie Ears



This morning began like any other, but on my way to my 3 month Post Surgery Follow up, Luna started poking in her right ear and telling me it hurt... OOOOHH NOOO!! So, I called up the doctor and made an appointment for later in the morning...

Luna is usually the Alpha Twin... Very independent, but at the Dr's office, she wouldn't let go of me, and only wanted to be carried.. I KNEW she had to sick... My poor baby. It breaks my heart to see her like this..


Turns out, my baby has both ears infected, and by the time we reached the doctor's ofice she was running a fever too. My poor baby....
And NOW......


They're both juiced up, full of meds, and napping... and MOMMA is bracing herself for two sick gremlins... Wish me luck..

Random Thoughts Tuesday: Losing it

randomtuesday
Been seeing this meme around for a minute, and thought I'd give in for a little more randomness, give the Unmom a look see..


I hate driving in this stinking state... Not only do you put your blinkers on when merging into another lane because it's the law, but out of courtesy.... I have ENOUGH space to get in there, but I'm letting you KNOW I'm coming... But HERE??? A blinking signal light means... Speed it up buddy, there's enough room for me to get in there... WTH... and you wonder why you get CUT OFF...

Is the middle finger considered international sign language???

Let's not even begin on days with any sign of precipitation.... HECK... we don't even have to have water (in ANY form) falling from the sky to freak these folks out... it could be CLOUDY and everyone automatically drives 10 miles BELOW the speed limit.

Can PMS start at 2 years of age? I swear sometimes these two have issues... and I have NOOOO Idea where they get it from.. Maybe it's just me... I have been a little moody after my surgery in November, But on a lighter note, have lost 65lbs...

I've lost some weight, 2 sizes, and those extra chins.... But I'm in NO hurry to find them either...

Happy Blogging folks, I've got 2 gremlins to attend to...

Random Thoughts Tuesday :Short Order Cook

randomtuesday

Been seeing this meme around for a minute, and thought I'd give in for a little more randomness, give the Unmom a look see..

Came down to make breakfast this morning, like any other morning.. and the girls said they wanted eggs.. Sure, no problem.. eggs it is, and as I'm putting a pot to boil water... They start chanting Papapapapapapa, Papa is the Spanish word for potatoes... Fine, Mashed potatoes with boiled eggs it is.. (heck got a pot of perfectly good boiling water right here..)... You'd think that was the end of it.. NNNOOOOO!! I open the cabinet to put the bag of potatoes away and low and behold... I hear Macanoni an cheeeee mama.. WHAT?? Ok for lunch... Macanoni and cheeeee... and it's getting repetative, and louder.... Well as I thought about it... WHY NOT??? hahahaha so.. the girls have mac n' cheese for breakfast TOO... (NO they didn't eat ALL that food, but I won't have to make dinner.... hehehehe


Have I mentioned enough that being a mom is the greatest job I've ever had?

It's mentioned in a medical journal that a cure for a cough is laxatives, it's meant to keep you from coughing for fear of an accident... WHAT? Not kidding folks.. Makes me wonder if they're sponsored by Depends... hehehe

And if you're wondering what has prompted me from feeling all warm and fuzzy about being a mom to thinking of poop? Well, don't they go had in hand? Of course.. I can smell some now.. gotta run..

Happy Chinese New Year


The lucky mascot of lunar Rooster year.



Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese year 4708 begins TODAY.

The year of the tiger...

Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in tiger years are natural leaders and excel as actors, pilots, writers, and managers. They are authoritative, courageous, emotional, and intense. Demi Moore,Emily Bronte, Tom Cruise, and John Steinbeck were all born in the year of the tiger. (for more traits, or to find out what year YOU were born under, go here.)


Chinese New Year is a time to start with a blank slate. Chinese families clean their homes, buy new clothing, and repay any debts they may owe in order to prepare for the New Year.

On New Year's Eve, families decorate their homes. They set off fireworks to scare away evil spirits. Families also prepare a feast of traditional Chinese New Year foods.

Chinese New Year is also a time for people to connect with family and honor their ancestors. On New Year's Day, people visit family members and friends to wish them luck in the New Year. They say "Gung hay fat choy," which means, "May you prosper." Children receive red envelopes called lai see with gifts of money inside.
