Sick of being Sick.

If I lived to never have the flu or cold or strep throat again it would not be too soon.
I am totally over this. I was up ALL night long coughing and coughing and coughing. Just as I am now. I ended up staying in bed and kept Gena home with me. Why you ask? Why would a mom who hasn't slept and is sick keep her overly hyped up child home with her. Torture I suppose or the fact that I wouldn't have been able to drive her to preschool let alone drive home and climb three yes people three flights of stairs to get back into my what usually is a comfy, cosy bed, that I now do not want to lay in for the fact that i have layed there for more than 20 hours!

So now I sit in my Grama's lazy boy chair that I inherited after she passed. It is an old chair but I feel like I get a grama hug every time I sit in it. I type away, coughing. Barefoot Contessa is on the TV because God forbid that I actually turned it off, I might feel lonely. But you have the hellion child you say. Oh no my wonderful cranky husband came home early to take her to her best buddies birthday party. So the house is quite except for the snoring pug and oh did I mention my coughing. Oh I did didn't I?

I pray that I somehow make it up to see 18 kids and counting cause I just love this show. Will I make it up probably not should I DVR it probably if I had one but I am cheap or frugal whatever you would like to call it. I don't want to pay more than I have to for cable. In return my husband drops little hints at least 3 times a week about how great it would be to have a DVR. God Bless him for putting up with not just me but mini me (Gena) and the pugglypig Milo. Of coarse I am guessing it is fair game cause he has his faults too. Not just one but a few ;)

Do over Sunday

Okay so let me start with I had the worst of the worst migraine all day. You know the kind that you have to upchuck to get rid of it. Yeah I know you wanted to hear that.

Well now that that is over with I can go on to other things. Josh and I started a new chore chart for Gena today. The Princess Chore Chart. Okay so this kid only has a few things on it and do you know half of them are still not done. She was not happy when she found out the cash flow would dwindle down. Then we also did the Privilege Ladder that I read on It Feels Like Chaos blog. Thank you so much to the lady who wrote that on her blog. Do you know that this thing helped out so much.
If you want to see what I am talking about go to It Feels like Chaos Blog

Okay so as you have already read I had a stinking migraine and so when I put out the chicken breasts to thaw it was already 1 maybe 2 in the afternoon so needless to say we had pizza delivered. It did help the headache some but then I thought I might vomit again so I stopped eating. Oh but it was good.

Do you ever notice that you are drawn to shows that would normally not appeal to you but since you do have a kid and you are so used to watching them that the next thing you know you are watching the Disney channel and The Princess Protection Program is on and you Liked it.
My child wasnt even in the room, no, the dog, who by the way is 2 whole years old today, big feat for a dog that I didnt think would make it through 1, seeing that my child treats him like a sibling, anyway I am off the beaten path now. So yes the pug, Milo, watched this with me. He snored more than watched but he is a great snuggler.

Oh and did anyone see that not only in 1 weeks time did Ed McMahon, Michael Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett pass but Billy Mays (infomercial king) passed too! God sure is busy bringing people home. At this point I am waiting to see who has passed on tomorrow. Morbid but true.

Well it is getting late and I have to get up early so I can teach a group of 5 year olds. Hip Hip Horray. No really they are great. Did I mention my kid is in that class too haha. This should be fun. ~Jess

Welcome to my new blog spot. I am a mom of one, yes one but apparently is equal to at least two (according to my down stairs neighbor) and I have a great husband who interns as my second child and a sweet but very very stubborn pug named Milo. I am currently working at a preschool as a teacher/assistant. Loads of 2-5 year olds. Great kids but do cause White hair. I am currently working on my first novel. A historical romance. Can not wait to finish it and see what people think of my hobby that I hope to be a career. I look forward to writing about my day to day life. Sharing with all who are interested. ~Jessica
