Monday Morning Inspirational #71802


OK, so I don't remember the part in the Old Testament where Chuck came in but I was never known for my listening skills during church. Motherbumper spent waaaaaay too much time trying to figure out why that old lady in the choir sang with that ridiculously high-pitched, fake-sounding falsetto every freakin' solo or better yet, why Brother John in full Franciscan garb was missing a finger. With so many things to contemplate, who wouldn't miss when Chuck took over?

Anyhow, I spent this weekend being a redneck . Oh yes, she was in town for a whirlwind tour and Saturday night found me and something like 25 other bloggers up on top of Toronto toasting the night away with Redneck Mommy. I was not drinking (WHAT? screams the crowd my Dad) because I had a 100% patented motherbumper of a migraine Friday and was still nursing nausea wounds the next day.

This translated to me being a bit slow on the uptake and downloads during the festivities. I was about as sharp as nerf ball and dangerous as a wet kitten but f**k it, I had a blast. More on it later, when I can get all the linky love going because oh my holy heck - there were so many bloggers there and I'm really that lazy.

Right now it's Sunday night when I write this and I'm 98% sure that I'm sick. Again. Didn't I just got over the real-life-made-for-tv thus plague-worthy flu? Here it is, finally Spring outside and I'm getting sick. Some days I'm pretty sure this is purgatory.

So I'm extra special crispy, loopy and lazy tonight and I cannot do excessive linkage - I have yet to memorize everyone's freakin' url. Shame on me. See? Extra crispy tonight.

Oh and update to the *ahem* case of the missing jewel or she sh*ts diamonds by the seashore: there has been no definitive sighting of the bedazzled joy that gave that extra special twist to our past Thursday afternoon. We've given up hope in finding the bauble. But I'm glad that our experience could serve as a warning to you all - just when you think you have them figured out, they make the next move so unnerving and unexpected that game begins again. Good times.

Ah, parenthood - looks so good on the outside, pure mayhem on the inside.

I'm sorry I missed the gathering, but more sorry that you're sick. Being sick is not fun. I know.

Hope you can get some rest today.

You're sick?!

BOOOOO!

Assertagirl said...

You mean the germ-fighting properties of eggs benny and sausage didn't keep you from getting sick? BAH!

nomotherearth said...

I'm sick too. Hope you feel better soon, friend. Being sick in the sunshine sucks. (Look at the consonance in that sentence...my parents paid big bucks for my education)

Kyla said...

I'm SO jealous! ACK. I love you crazy Canadians.

BubTar has what looks to be a possibly DOUBLE ear infection, so he feels your sicky, sicky pain. (in other news, the universe hates me, LOL)

Backpacking Dad said...

Erin and I both woke up sick this morning. It's not going to be a fun day.

Mandy said...

Sorry to hear your weekend is being capped by evil germ gremlins.

Feel better soon!

Ali said...

Mimi said...

Oh dear. Um, I think I picked up the Mommy Blogger germs because there's some weird and ominous creaking going on in my brain today and some whistling in the nose .... uh-oh. NOT AGAIN!!!!

(So so lovely to see you again)

temptingmama@gmail.com said...

It was soooo awesome to finally meet you!

Sick? Dude, if I come down with something, I am sooooo coming after you! LOL

Mamalooper said...

NOooo.... [or as Monkeygirl says, nononononononononono Mommy]... I don't want to catch the Mommy Blogger germs! Too many colds this winter already.

Good to see you on Saturday night!

Mac and Cheese said...

It was great seeing you, but I'm a bit miffed that you didn't do the linky thing on your post. I'm also too lazy too make all the links, so my plan was to link to someone else's blog where the work was already done. I'll keep trollin' for someone. I hope you feel better.

Somehow, a wet kitten sounds dangerous to me...

And I can't believe the little gem hasn't made its appearance yet. Feed that kid some fibre, will ya?

Hoep you're feeling all back on top soon, hon.

Major Bedhead said...

Feel better. I'm finally getting over some week-long cough-and-sneeze fest. It sucks.

Redneck Mommy said...

Aw Bumper.

You can wipe your snot on my sleeve any time.

Hope you feel better. If it's any consolation, I'm feeling rather sickly myself today...

But it may just be due to the fact that I MISSSSSSS you...

the mama bird diaries said...

Hope you feel better girl! :(

Chicky Chicky Baby said...

I don't know what you've been doing in your spare time, but wet kittens can be VERY dangerous. I've checked.

Sorry about the migraine, babe. I'd totally send you some good drugs if I had any.

Carlo said...

Good Job! :)
