Puke gag puke and other random things

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.

Hope that the puke has stopped for good!
Mmmm. . . Those maple leaf cookies sound great. Maybe it's a good thing we don't get them over here!

Puke is bad, but Brussels are awesome. And sticking to your budget is awesome, too!! We've been cooking at home more, too. Last night I managed chicken in the George Foreman grill, instant rice and microwave-steamed fresh broccoli.... It wasn't fancy or difficult, but it was yummy and I made it myself!

Veggie jambalaya sounds a lot harder :)

Oh poor thing. I hope noone else gets it!!!

I wish we had a crockpot.. I got a dutch oven for Christmas and am enjoying putting it to use, it does help. We've got to get back on budget, the last couple of weeks we didn't really. More meals out than I want to admit... this week is going good so far though lol. Glad it's working out for you too. Btw, have you looked at the MPM site I have linked? She has tons of ideas for food and stuff... it's great!

Girl, I already placed my order for Girl Scout cookies. Not a good idea considering I am not eating sugar.

Midwest Mommy said...

I hope everyone starts feeling better soon. That has to be hard.

Jiff said...

LMAO. You booed Bush?? And flipped him off? That's hilarious!

Hope your kiddos are back to normal and you can enjoy a puke and baby gate free existence. :)

Clare said...

Hey, we have had lots of puking in this house as well. The wife is having the morning sickness again, although it is not as bad as it was last time!!

amanda said...

and yay you for being all suzy homemaker!!

love the dieting news...makes me feel better about mine. i made a pan of cookie bars yesterday. nothing makes the thighs feel better than cookies!

Missy Marshmallow said...

I a sucker for Pepperidge Farm too, but I prefer Milano. Lately, I have been giving into my Oreo cravings.....maybe I will have some now.

Dana said...

i hope the puking has stopped and that everyone is feeling much better!!! And way to go taking the baby gates down - bet it feels great!

MarvelousMOM said...

That sounds like a LOT of puke!!! Yucky. Hopefully you have been puke free for a couple of days now. I would love for you to share with me some budgeting advice!! :)

Rachel said...

Christy-first off let me say I LOVE you! You are great. We should do a diet together for support-let me know when you are ready. As for the crock pot-I swear by it. Also put some beans in it and you can make a real soupy kind of bean and veggies dal. It is so good and so damn easy. I use my crock pot every other night to make a soup for dinner.
