"Every party has a pooper, that's why we invited you. Party pooper. Party pooper."
I am sick. I am pretty sure that it is the nastiest sinus infection I have ever had. It may be strep, but I don't think so because if I have run a temp, it has been mild. And my doctor, WebMD, has suggested viral infection.
This illness has wreaked havoc on my weekend, the one where I actually had plans. Church directory pictures (ugh - I think I still have to get those done. It will be reminiscent of jr. high yearbook photos, I am sure.) Late breakfast with a friend -postponed. Girls Night Out/going away party for a friend - should not attend.
But here I am - deciding to at least attend the Ultimate Blog Party. Here I can party at 6:30 AM with my penguin flannel pajamas and my citrus-green tea. I know how to live it up.
So a little about me, UBP-ers. I am thirty-one. I am sometimes sweet and reflective, and sometimes I tell it like it is with a dose of sarcasm. No matter what, I am always authentic. That bothers some people, but I figure, reading my blog is a choice. At least until I become President in 2016. Then it will be mandated.
I have been married for seven years. The Hubs is a counselor, but he is starting a nursing program this fall. This will enable me to continue being a stay-at-home mom (which I love and which IS work) in this double-income society of ours. I have two sweet boys - Bubby will be three in May and Bugaboo is sixteen months. They were both preemies. Bugaboo is having some delays - cognitively, verbally, and with his motor skills, so we are trying to figure that out.
I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.I love the ideas on there. I hate that I never have the ingredients (or motivation) to make the recipes and that I lack the skills (and patience) to craft. Sill, I pin away. I love to read when I have the time, and check out multiple library books. My fine-paying has decreased since the advent of the online notification system. I love movies, too. There hasn't been much on tv lately that has caught my eye (or that I've even had the time to watch), but I did enjoy watching the first two seasons of Downton Abbey with my mom over Spring Break.
I'm off now to make a new cup of tea (though what I really like to drink are iced caramel macchiatos) and open a new box of Kleenex. Hope to see you again once I am back to normal!
