Lessons Learned

December 19, 2006

If there is one truth I have learned, one unswerving principle I have uncovered in my years as a wife and mother, it is this:

 A family of five makes a helluva lot of laundry.

When you’re married to the law, those “just to say I love you” phone calls sound like this:

December 15, 2006

Cell phone rings; Deputy Dad’s work cell phone number is on the display.

LadyBug:   Hello, Handsome.

Deputy Dad:  Hey, what’re you doin’?

LadyBug:  Not much.  What’re you doin’?

Deputy Dad:  Oh, I was just lookin’ over these human bones and I thought about how much I love you.

Not dead…just shopping!

December 12, 2006

Hi!  Hey!  Hello!  How are you?  Good?  That’s great!

So, yeah…I posted every day for the entire month of November, and then Boom!  Just decided to drop off the face of the earth in December!  Right?

Well, no, not exactly.  Truth is, things have just been crazy and busy and crazy busy.  Did you know freaking CHRISTMAS is right around the corner?!?  So, apparently, there’s all this shopping to do, and all these preparations, and the wrapping and the decorating and Good GRIEF, can I just put napping my sleepy ass right through to the New Year on my holiday to-do list??

I thought I was coming down with another cold last week, but I took high doses of Vitamins C and B-12 and got over it within a couple days.  I did the same thing last time I had a cold, and also got over that one uncharacteristically quickly.  I’m not saying I’ve found a cure for the common cold, but I AM saying that I’ll be keeping Vitamin C and Vitamin B-12 on hand at all times.

In other news, Deputy Dad had his stent removed yesterday.  Hopefully, he’ll be back to normal within a few days, and all this kidney stone madness will soon be a distant memory.

A little o’ this, a little o’ that…

December 1, 2006

Item 1:  Deputy Dad ended up having the kidney stone removed this morning.  The hospital did a CAT scan when he arrived, determined that the stone was still there, then did the procedure to remove it.  The doc also had to put in a stent because of all the swelling.  Father-In-Law drove Deputy Dad to the hospital, since it was 1 1/2 hours away and Deputy Dad had to be there at 7:50 this morning.  I wanted so badly to be there with my sweetheart, but three kids who needed to get ready for and be delivered to school and the babysitter made that pretty much impossible.  I spoke with Father-In-Law about 1/2 an hour ago, and they were headed home.  Deputy Dad is pretty groggy and sore, but at least the stone is gone.
Aaaaand that’s probably all you need to know about my man’s man parts, huh?

Item 2:  I did it!  I finished NaBloPoMo!  I actually posted every single day, for the entire month of November.  I have to admit I’m a bit surprised I made it.  I’m also ever-so-slightly proud of myself.  Just look at my pretty November calendar, with all its dates in blue!  I’ve enjoyed NaBloPoMo, but I have to admit I’m relieved to be off the daily posting hook.  I do want to post more frequently, but I just don’t need the pressure of posting every. single. day.

Item 3:  I forget Item 3.

 Okay!  It’s Friday, everyone!  Have a great weekend.
