  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

A plague upon Ourhouse

The snot is still with me. And yet, I am at work. Why, you ask? Well, let me tell you.

I couldn’t stand Daddy-O a minute longer. He is just beginning to get sick, you see. So, not only is everything I have done to rid myself and children of this plague wrong, but it borders on medieval in it’s ineffectiveness. “What? You’re only using Tylenol Sinus, Dayquil, and chest patches? Have you dosed the children? What no antibiotics?” Forget that they don’t have ear or sinus infections so there is no reason for anti-biotics… You’d think I was applying leaches.

My MIL insists on giving me the life history of every soap opera character on TV. Really. I HAD to go back to work out of self-defense.

D has turned into some sort of toddleresque version of Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde. He’s apparently learning his negatives – you know, “don’t”, “I do not”, etc. So he has whiningly demanded his drum, only to scream invectives and “DON’T!” when presented with it. Replace ‘drum’ with ‘cookie’, ‘milk’, ‘water’, ‘juice’, ‘milkjuicewater’, ‘buttons’, various CDs, etc and you get the picture of the day in Ourhouse.

B is not sick enough by half and is b-o-r-e-d. He was sent to school today to spread the plague willy-nilly amongst the villagers.

Nobody wants to eat yet I still have to cook. That’s just BS of the finest sort.

The MIL is here to help… yet see all of the above.

So. I am back to work where I at least stand a chance of being left alone to get some rest.
