A Sad Little Tale of Woe

I’m up to my eyeballs in deadlines.  And up to my armpits in used tissues.  Literally.  I keep stuffing them into my bra strap for an emergency sneeze, and before I know it I look like I have a third breast.

A cold that couldn’t have come at a worse time.  This is a week when I have to actually look presentable.  As in, I get to leave the house and be around other adults.  And discuss adult type issues. On camera.

How can I have an intelligent conversation with someone when they think I have a third breast?  I KNOW!  I’ll get a huge pimple on the side of my nose!  That’ll distract ‘em.

Actually, it was a pimple.  Now it’s just an angry red gaping hole on the side of my nose.  And I’m sure that I don’t need to go into any more detail than that.

Let’s just say that I need to clean the bathroom mirror.

And that’s all I’m sayin’.

Your welcome.

I haven’t posted about how the eating plan is going.  (Notice how cleverly I did not say the word “diet”?)  There’s not much to tell.  I’m still down 5 pounds, and have introduced healthy carbs back in.  Praise God for oatmeal.  I now need to hit the gym.  Hard.  When the plague leaves me.

How are those of you doing this with me holding up?

I posted the winners of the Little Debbie 100 Calorie Snack Assortment on my review blog.  Y’all love your snacks.  All a person has to do to generate a good buzz on their blog is give away some snacks.  I knew I was in good company.

The “Lost” premiere is Wednesday night.  My joy knows no bounds.  I may need to tape it though because Fiddledaddy is working.  Do people still tape shows?  It’s not really taping, it’s sort of capturing it on our computer.  We have some sort of fancy shmancy technology that turned an old computer into a television.

I don’t understand it.  I’m just along for the technological ride.

Some of you have been asking about the homeschool conference where I’m speaking this Saturday.  This is the information.  If you want to see a grown woman cry like a little girl in front of an audience, then that’s where you’ll want to be.

I’ll post when I can.  Y’all have an awesome week!

  • Feel better! I’ve got the plague stirrin’ in me too. 🙁 Drink lots, get some rest (yeah, right!)…

  • OMG – the bathroom mirror! ROFLMBO!! I think my cube farm neighbors are curious about what got me rollin’, but I think I’m gonna keep that little gem to myself. Ya know, for your sake. 🙂

  • I really like how you are listed as “Special Entertainment”! Have fun.

  • Wahoo! If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have known when Lost was to start.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  • At this point in my “eating program” I’m thinking it should be illegal to type those words in the same paragraph as the words “Little Debbie”. Their 100 calorie line really doesn’t help much when you consume 5 or 20 of them at the time.

  • Is it bad that I am giggling about you being called “Special Entertainment” for the homeschool convention?! I mean, with the third boob and the red crater on the side of your nose…

    Have you tried Afrin for your nose? It clears up nasal congestion and doesn’t make you feel all icky.

  • You do know that you can just go watch it after it airs on abc.com right? No recording or techno-genius ability required. 🙂

    That’s what we do, so we don’t have to plan around it.

  • Yes, I can’t wait until Lost!

  • Hope you feel better soon. The plague has invaded our home and I’m up to my armpits in tissues, thermometers, tylenol and ibuprofin for 3 small children and one whiney man. 🙂 None of us have set foot outside in a week.

    Sigh. I still need to watch last season of Lost.

  • I just got my Little Debbie snacks in the mail for my giveaway and those yellow cakes. They taste like Twinkies. I am in heaven!!

    And Lost. Booyah!! (no idea how to spell that word, pretty sure it isn’t even a word)
