Day thirty: Is it... is it really day 30 already?

Oh my holy grapes, mother have mercy, I can't believe it's finally over. NaBloPoMo will be a thing of yesterday tomorrow and I'm actually surprized I made it here. I must give out special thank yous to Chag over at Cynical Dad, Something Baby Blue and Jezer over at JezeWhiz because they kept me going on those rough days and I tried to do the same. And I have to say thank you to all the people that commented on my (sometimes lame) posts. You all freakin' rock.

Now you will not hear from me for a long time.

I am solo today and tonight, Bumper refused to go to sleep and cried and cried and cried until an hour after her regular bed time and I want to have dinner. I swear that husband must give her a fifth of bourbon or something* because I can never get her to go to sleep as quickly as he does. GAH! So after I press Publish, I'm going to curl up in front of the TV, watch me some Survivor and eat whatever I darn well please. Grilled cheese with a pickle sounds about right. Easy to make and filling.

Some reminders before I collapse:

Did I forget to mention that over at Mommy Blogs Toronto there will be new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday? No? Well you know now. Go check it out today and tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, Friday is the last day to vote over at the Canadian Blog Awards. Go vote for Metro Mama and Sunshine Scribe if you've been meaning to - there's only so much time left!

There, I'm done. I have now collapsed into my couch not to return until I have done some commenting, written about 100 emails and created a few movie lists that are actually worth reading.

Hey - did I mention you all rock?

* husband does not give our child bourbon or alcohol of any kind (as far as I know). I'm kidding, I swear he doesn't and neither do I.

Congrats on the the month!

Thanks for the shout out - I'm embarrassed to keep reminding people but I think I'm in dead last.

Congratulations for making it through your month of blogging daily!!!

You have more willpower than I ever could muster in my right foot!!

Well done!! I have thoroughly enjoyed your musings

Jezer said...

We did it! We did it! Now, go hunker down and recover. You did an amazing job at writing GOOD stuff every day (much better than my "Here I am publishing five words, this counts, right?" placeholders!).

Grilled cheese and pickles! Yum!

Congrats on keeping your fingers slying for a full month! That's quite a feat. I've been pretty fluffy this month and I'm not even writing every day! I'm hoping all my vacation time in Dec. will translate into some slightly more worthy material...

ali said... was your grilled cheese and survivor??

sounds like a great night to me!

Bri said...

Congratulations! I honestly enjoyed reading every post, seriously!
I'm with you on the solo thing, Joe's working 3 nights this week and 12 hour days with Sam are killing me!!!!
A little bourbon now and then for us mommas can't hurt!

I think the babes stay awake with the mom because we are too darn exciting!

Thank you for helping me do BloPo too! Time for celebratory drinks!!!

Her Bad Mother said...

Congrats on making through the month! Now - go eat cheese!!!!!

(When you recover, WB would like some Bumpa time...)

Hope you have a yummy dinner of grilled cheese and pickle. But make sure you take that bottle of booze out of Bumpers mouth and transfer it to your own. Congrats on the month. Does it feel good? Was it worth it?

Congratulations! Still think you were all mad - MAD! - for taking on such a thing, but it is very impressive.
I'd write more but all I can think of is grilled cheese with a pickle. Takes me back. That was my favourite thing to eat when I was a kid. We used to eat them at the Skillet restaurant in Zeller's. Does Zeller's still have a restuarant in it? If we can find one, let's go! I'll buy you and Bumper a grilled cheese sandwich with fries and, of course, a pickle!

sunshine scribe said...

YAY you!!! Congratulations on completing that month of craziness. And none of your posts were lame. Enjoy some time off of the blog. You deserve it!!!

MrsFortune said...

Yeah, I think our kids do that to make liars out of us. Because I can be all "the baby was crabby and crying and screaming and wailing all day long" to my husband, then the minute he walks in the door we have an angel child on our hands. Seriously. Exasperating.

Glad you made it, cheers!

Have you tried grilled cheese with pickle slices in the sandwich? Good stuff.
