A Seinfeld Post

I have no idea what I want to blog about, so this will be a post about absolutely nothing. I have been reading all my favorite blogs and enjoying commenting here and there, but my life has been a completely boring place to be recently.

Maybe I could write about the fact that Nathan has had fever since last Wednesday. We paid his doctor a $20 co-pay to tell us that he has a virus (duh), and can go back to school tomorrow.

Maybe I could write about the fact that we had to remove all lotions, baby powder and otherwise messy products from Gracie's room, because the girl is NOSEY and additionally, loves to climb. I found her room dusted in baby powder Sunday morning after she had a heyday dispersing it throughout the space. I wasn't there, but I'm confident it involved twirling and laughing.

Maybe I could write about the fact that our sitter won't be keeping Nathan this summer and that I am stressed about finding somewhere to send him for the 12 weeks between 1st and 2nd grade. Between my mom, my sister-in-law and my sitter, we have 7 weeks taken care of, but 5 more to go. Have I mentioned before how much I hate change, and the thought of not knowing how Nathan's summer will play out is killing me?

Maybe I could write about the fact that my cousin Courtney sent me a fantabulous scone recipe that I can't seem to quit making. Seriously easy....seriously good. I'm not a big fan of scones. They always seem to be too dry, but these make me want to eat the entire recipe.

Maybe I could write about the fact that I have apparently caught whatever it is that is going around this part of the country, my throat hurts and I am ready to go to bed at the embarrassing hour of 7:22 pm. I'm thinking a nice big shot of NyQuil with a Vitamin C chaser is in order tonight. If I catch it early enough, that usually does the trick, unless my body remembers that I don't have a spleen in which case all bets are off. We'll see what happens....

I would love to write about all of these things in excruciating detail, but now I'm too tired. Maybe tomorrow.....

I love Nyquil. I know, weird. I hope it works for you and that you wake up tomorrow feeling tons better. I had to laugh at the baby powder and Gracie. When Luke was little he "powdered" our Rottweiler and he was completely gray. I have a picture somewhere. . .

I know the feeling about the sickness. I woke up with it last Wednesday. Sore throat. Runny nose. Headache. Fever. Body Aches. Yuck!!! Right now I just have the stuffy nose and occasional cough. I've never tried NyQuil. I'm on Tylenol Cold & Flu - I like the nighttime one - conks me out quite nicely.

Hopefully not too much detail. Misery loves company. :)

Hope you are feeling better really soon!! Mom's don't have time to get sick. :)

Sorry to hear you are sick. I have just recovered from the WORST stomach flu. Ugh! I know things will work out with Nathan...what about a fun day camp or two?

Andrea said...

I have had a few instances where I was worried about child care for my girls too. But somehow -- through a lot of prayer -- it has always worked out.

Keep the faith...

Hope you are feeling better. I know what it is like to feel "uninspired" and boring! But you are far from boring even in this Seinfeld post! Lots of vitamin C is a great idea! Get better soon!

OOh, you poor thing. Absolutely no fun to be sick, and especially with little ones. Healthy little ones who are intent on spreading their joy -- and whatever else they can find -- around!! Feel better soon!
