We went on our birthday hike which was, as usual, fun and exhausting and I don't mean the hike. The talking, laughing and the stuffing my face with food is what kicked my butt; all the fresh air and the sunshine just about killed me. 

Mia and I baked chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies and hot lava chocolate cake this week, and then I weighed myself. I am just going to keep to myself what happened after that, but let's just say I think I invented some new curse words.

Lately, I haven't been doing much except watching a crap load of tv because the fall shows are all starting and I am still catching up on summer shows. I love to watch TV but I also feel guilty if I do it without doing something else at the same time, like painting or cleaning. So I drink wine while I am doing it so I am drunk and can't feel anything.

Mia is finally in Kindergarden and she is doing really well. This is the moment that I have been waiting for; I actually have a couple of hours to myself every morning and I have absolutely no idea what to do with that extra free time. This is what happens when you don't do change well. I am completely overwhelmed.

I got sick with the flu, which in turn, means Christopher got it too and when it was finally on its way out of our house, I put my retainer back in (that I didn't disinfect) and I got the flu again! Of course, I was a mouth breather due to the fact that my nose was completely stopped up, and I gave it to Christopher again. Isn't love grand?

The littlest one in the bunch got a nasty wart while we were away on the retreat. After trying to get rid of it with over the counter medicines and watching it get bigger and bigger, I finally iced it.  I hope this takes care of the problem because she is starting to walk on her tippy toes and that is not good.

Let me tell you about my friend, Vicky, who is a damn hoot and a half; she about killed me. She managed to fall down the escalator with her kid, and her kid got her ear and arm stuck in the elevator. She is the nuttiest, nicest, most accident-prone person I know and I can't imagine not knowing her.

This is about as random as you can get, but this has been my life lately. There you have it! I hope you enjoyed it. not really, I could care less.
