sickness has entered our home

I feel like such a fat ass! I haven't been to the gym for most of the week, I went Monday and had a good workout, but chose to not go on Tuesday, just because I didn't want to. I didn't go yesterday, Wednesday, because I took Baby Princess to the library. Well, after the library, Little Red's momma and I had Mexican for lunch (YUM!), and after lunch we said, "oh, we'll work this off at the gym tomorrow..." Upon driving away from the delicious Mexican restaurant, and on my way home, I got a call from Big-Girl Princess's school nurse who tells me that BGP isn't feeling well, and even though her temp isn't the 100 degrees it has to be to go home, it is still 99.8. I told the nurse, "I'm on my way there to pick her up!" Later in the evening I learn through husband that she went to the nurse's office after PE, so she probably had the headache and was overheated because she didn't drink enough water. Bonus, I can still go to the gym, right? NO! BGP woke up today with a fever of 100.1 degrees, so she must stay home. The fever broke later this morning, but after her nap the fever resurfaced. So now, I will not be going to the gym tomorrow either, hopefully Baby Princess won't get sick so I can at least be a gym diva next week.

A good thing though, they both took a nap this afternoon. :)

Just to clear some stuff up...

I feel like I need to clear up something, people may ask, "Queen 'B'", wtf? She seems to think highly of herself... But, it is really my oldest princess told me a few months ago that she was a princess and so was her baby sister, so I told her that I wanted to be a princess too and she set me straight and said, "no mommy, you are the queen, and daddy's the king..." I always thought that was sweet, especially since we live so far from the royalty life.

I also need to clear up something about my king... The big reason why I don't mind my husband going out for drinks with his friends is that when he gets home he is sweet and wants to have sex. Well, last night he throws in some dirty talk and I just laughed, and laughed and he kept talking. Eventually, I had to move to the sofa because he was so drunk and silly I wasn't going to be sleeping there, and I need all the beauty sleep I can get.

Also, for some reason I was so unbelievably tired last night, I went to bed at like 8:30ish, read before going to sleep, but I was probably sleeping by 9ish, which is usually when I catch up on TiVoed reality shows that I may have recorded. I'm still a little tired this morning, maybe that little birthday party I threw, on Thursday, is still with me. I also wanted to add, good book club choice, Blue Momma! LOVE IT!!! I am hoping that I can finish it before the meeting.

Yesterday, I took the baby princess to a play date at Chuck E Cheese, and for those of you who have never been, it is definitely a tiring experience, especially when your kid starts to throw tantrums and I seriously was thinking about eating there, but we had to leave before we were able to order any food and even left before we could turn in the tickets we won! That's what you have to do though if the kids act up, just leave.

Princess habits

I think it is pretty funny how there is now a gossip magazine for kids by Disney. Hubby bought it for big girl princess on the way home from work yesterday, and wouldn't put it down because guess who is on the cover? Miley Syrus! (or, Hannah Montana) Big girl princess had trouble putting the magazine down, and hubby/daddy reads over her shoulder that Miley is dating one of the Jonas Brothers? Big girl princess looks up and very matter-of-factly says, "yeah, Nick." It's like she is a little me, and will soon get her news from People, Us Weekly and all the great trash magazines that I enjoy. awwww.

The baby princess really enjoys Elmo, I have trouble with him because his voice is too high, and well I just find him irritating, but baby princess LOVES him, so I am able to get by okay. For the baby princess we (really me, because hubby was in Wisconsin on a business trip) bought her a little "Get Dressed With Elmo" toy, and we get to hear him sing songs about getting dressed, she can practice buttoning and velcroing and learn to tie shoes even. Well, today Elmo was sitting next to us and he started ringing, like a phone, and then he said, "That's Elmo's cell phone..." WHAT?!?!? Okay, I am about to sound like an 80 year old, but isn't he supposed to represent a kid? And I probably shouldn't say anymore because I am going to really sound like an 80 year old and how cell phones are a necessity that we just didn't have back in my day.

For Random Mommy

Why do you blog? I started my first blog on myspace when I was going through b.c., and I started this more public blog because I wanted to jump on this mommy blog bandwagon and write about fun stuff in my life.

What was the first blog you ever read? I think it was this funny woman on iVillage who wrote about living in "the tiny kingdom", which I knew was Mtn. Brook, then I started reading mom blogs of women I know, but the funny thing is I always felt I was lurking until I started my own a week ago...

What was the first blog that had you hooked? Actually, the blog that hooked me was billville, written by a friend of mine from college. He doesn't write on it anymore, unless it is to give a book review.

Which blogger friend would you most like to meet in real person? I think I have met most of them in person. I will have to pay more attention to if I read any strangers' blogs though.

Which blog do you admire the most, why? Random Mommy's blog, she isn't afraid to say anything, and I appreciate her honesty, besides that she is very funny.

How different are you in real life than in your blog? I try to make my blogs sound more like my conversation because I kind of talk as I type, so I think I am just like myself in my blog.

How many blogs do you keep up with on a daily basis? Just my regulars, and I don't know how many that is, but I don't think everyone writes in them everyday.

Today...snow...and par-tay.

It did snow, so we bundled the princesses up.

They were able to catch snowflakes on their tongues.

Then we were able to go celebrate Baby Princess's birthday.

We had a full day.

Friday, January 18, 2008


I think it won't snow tomorrow, but here are my reasons why it may:
  1. I have a little party planned for baby princess' birthday tomorrow and if it snows people can't go, because the city seriously shuts down when it does.
  2. I have already bought a cake and party favors.
  3. The weather people say it will snow, and sometimes they are right.
  4. I don't even have a full bottle of wine.

And here are my reasons of why it will NOT snow:

  1. I have enough bread and milk.
  2. Part of me wants it to so the two princesses can see it and play in it for the first time.
  3. The weather people say it will snow, and often they are wrong.

cleaning and stuff

Okay, I have finally gotten my energy back!!!! It hit me yesterday, and with that I am cleaning like how I used to with detail, not just the surfaces. The house thanks me for it! With that said, I haven't been working out very much this week, except for Monday and Tuesday. I wonder though if the energy I have had these past two days is because I didn't work out, eeeek, I am already looking for excuses.

I am thinking with this new energy, I may start back on the South Beach Diet, I was on this before I was diagnosed, but have been reluctant to start again for some reason. It's that first two weeks that I am dreading of detox where I can have no sugar, no flour, no alcohol, no caffeine (except I still had my morning cup of coffee), and it seems like there was something else I couldn't have, oh yeah, no chocolate, so that means no sanity! I am thinking after my birthday because I want to serve alcohol at my party, but then there will be Valentine's Day, and then Mardi Gras, whatever, I may and I may not.

First blog here

I have jumped on this whole bandwagon and now want to blog. I guess my first one is off the radar since it is on a private thing on myspace. But, here we go, I'll write more later, I really need to vacuum and the littlest princess is running around in the next room so I'll get back during naptime or later tonight.
