There has been puking at my house. Lots and lots of puking. Porgie started puking Saturday evening. She puked and puked and puked. Then she dry heaved, because she had nothing left to puke. Poor kid. She continued puking on Sunday. The only thing she could hold down was applesauce and water. Monday the puke-fest continued, except Porgie managed to keep down a bowl of cheerios too. YAY! And today, I have yet to see any puke spewing from my daughter's mouth. I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop, and for Izzy to start barfing.
SOOOO, things had been gross around here lately. On a positive note, we have been sticking to our new budget. I made dinner last night using my handy dandy crock pot. I prepared veggie jambalaya, and it was delicious. AND I intend to make dinner again today. Can you say Suzie Homemaker?
In other news, we took down all of our baby gates this weekend! I feel like a free woman! I had no idea how liberating it is to walk unhindered through your own house. Amazing! We actually had three gates dispersed throughout our house. We used them originally to corral Porgie into the living room while Izzy was napping. When that was no longer an issue, we arranged the gates to keep Izzy out of the kitchen. Since that is no longer an issue, the gates are obsolete. And I am free at last!
In dieting news, I am officially a fat ass. I think instead of fighting it, I am just going to try to except my lot in life as a cow. I am addicted to Pepperidge Farm cookies - specifically Brussels. I can't stop thinking about them. Even worse, I can't stop eating them. Oh, and I have also developed a love for Maple Leaf Cookies. Porgie has developed a love for the Maple Leaf Cookies too, because they taste like a little piece of heaven, right here on Earth.
Today is inauguration day! Are you excited? I am elated! Did you know that I attended Bush's inauguration in 2005? I stood on the parade route and booed him. I even flipped him the bird because I am classy like that. I wish I could go and cheer for Obama today, but alas, I have two small children to take care of. But I'll definitely be watching on TV.
Okay, I have tortured you enough for today.
