What is the Past Tense of "to Vomit"??

When I think of upchucking - I think of my young adult days. I think about when bowing to the porcelain goddess made my stomach feel SOOOOO much better. Maybe I had eaten the wrong combination of food before indulging. Maybe I had indulged too quickly without enough in my stomach. Maybe, just maybe, I had indulged a little too much. - Whatever the reason, tossing my cookies has almost always brought instant relief. Even when it was a stomach bug - when I was finally able to retch - boy did I feel better.

This is not the case with my daughter. She seems to be able to gag on command. From a mother with alsmost NO gag reflex, is a daughter who blows chunks whenever, and where ever she decides she should.

Yes, last week DD had a stomach bug. I was in vomit up to my armpits. (Which. if I had a gag reflex would have had me spewing as well.) Of course, she gets this trait from her father, because he would have heaved melted milk duds if I had made him clean it up. I know, I know - GROSS.

Well, there was my wonderful end of last week and this weekend!! - Hope you all enjoyed the kaleidoscope of words and phrases used for the disgusting action!

For those who are only reading because of all the 'puking' references -

Irish Proverbs: Drinking
A man takes a drink, the drink takes a drink, the drink takes the man.

It’s the first drop that destroys you, there’s no harm at all in the last.

If it’s drowning you’re after, don’t torment yourself with shallow water.

(Happy St. Paddy's Day!!)

For my family -

The kids have Easter pictures that we are sending your way. They are in no way 'perfect' so you can expect a good laugh!

Not Lazy, Just a Little Chaotic

OK - So they are more like opposites than complementing excuses! -

Dazjah started "school" yesterday. She loves it, her teachers love her (so far), and John and I know that she is SO ready for it. She has had a backpack for school for over a year now. The backpack now holds only one doll and a change of clothes incase she spills or starts a mud fight on the playground. The teachers say the extra clothes are in case she has an accident, there are no accidents with Dazjah. I have seen her wipe oatmeal on her shirt so that she could go change AGAIN! - What is it about little girls??

OK - Here is another DDMN - Dazjah is Driving Me Nuts! - The other day Zephan was talking to me in the car. He told me that he had changed his mind. He no longer wanted to be a policeman. He now wants to be a scientist. GREAT! Well, then Dazjah pipes in. "Mommy, I changed my mind too!"

"You did? What do you want to be now?" I reply.

"I want to be a buyer of clothes."

This made me wonder, was she going to be a professional shoplifter and has now changed her mind??? All kidding aside, I attribute this to her desire to wear sundresses in the dead of winter, change clothes as many times in a day as she can sneak in, and her Auntie Danielle. Johnathan's sister buys and sells all sorts of girly wear. Dazjah would love to try on all those clothes. Too bad she doesn't have a kids line out!

My father use to always say "Famous Last Words" when I said I was going to do some chore that any teen in their right mind would let themselves be distracted from. So, for him, here are some REAL Famous Last Words: Arnold Rothstein, a.k.a. Mr. Big. In response to questioning by the police about who had shot him. He was also known the fortune he made in the 1919 World Series fix. "Me mudder did it."

Workin for Jesus

I know, I know... how lazy can one person be? Well, when it comes to blogging - pretty lazy!

I am getting close to graduating and have officially started the job hunt - anyone willing to pay 6 figures?

What is the latest BIG news... well, I have accepted a part-time job working in the church office of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church! As best as I can figure, I have full-time access to forgiveness!

To my wonderful family - yes, I am still alive. I will try to get some newer pictures of the kiddos up tomorrow - or early next week. Hey there are a lot of naked, starving people that I am in charge of helping!!
