Status report from Puke Central

I know, I know. I invite everyone over for a party, tell them to come back soon, and then disappear.

I suck.

It's actually not true though - I don't suck. Work, however, sucks. (That's not actually true either, since I kind of love my job.) But working is sucking all my time. Steve is seriously busy, I am seriously busy, and sadly it's just going to get worse until about the middle of May.

And then my 2 big things are going to be open and I'm going to take a week off to plant my garden!

Then, life will be normal again!

So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to tell you that from now until May, don't expect much. Heck, if you don't expect anything at all, no posts, no nothing, then now and then we may actually be able to exceed your expectations around here!!

Life on the Roof: Lowering Expectations since 2009.

Right now I'm at home on a weekday for the third time in 2 weeks. Next to me is the light of my life, who has a smokin' fever and has spent only 2 of the last 16 hours puke free. It's a darn good thing I love this kid so much, especially considering that I spent the WHOLE DAY yesterday catching up on 3 weeks worth of laundry. At 10pm, less than an hour after I had tucked the final piece of folded laundry away in it's home, the pukefest started. And it just kept going. And going. And going.

It finally stopped about an hour ago.

The first (new) load of laundry is in the dryer. The second is in the wash. The third is still in the laundry basket at the top of the stairs, not entirely convinced that it has seen the last pukey pair of PJ's.

Despite the fact that everything has been or it on it's way to being laundered, and I have showered, I can not seem to escape the smell of regurgitated Italian dinner. I think the kid is the next thing to hit the wash.

So while we're hanging on the big bed, about to fire up Wall-E for the third time today, I thought I'd head over to Random.org and find me a crown winner!

Comment #3 - is Secret Mom Thoughts - yay! A crown of your choice is coming your way!

So remember, expect nothing. That way we can promise to meet or exceed your expectations every single time you visit!

Puke Central, over and out.

(9:24 pm Edit - spoke too soon about being puke free. Load 3 of laundry in the machine. Loads 4 and 5 (Pillows...YUCK!!) standing by.)

Griffin, sick again? Wow. Poor kid. He's really getting nailed with it this year. I hope you all feel better soon and things start to slow down.

Low expectations are always good by the way. Then you are pleasantly surprised when they surpass expectations.
