(I started telling that story in a much longer version including details of my kid's pukefest but decided noone wanted to hear about that. Although I'm tempted to just SEO the shit out of it because it's gotten to the point where I kindof feel like I've become something of a puke expert. I have so many pearls of wisdom on this issue! Such as this gem: If you think you might be sick NEVER, EVER wear a cowl neck sweater.)
(another aside: Junk punches for everyone who called the Duchess of Cambridge's recent hospital trip "privileged" Um... puking so much you are dehydrated to the point of hospitalization is AWFUL no matter how many crown jewels you own. And throat punches for anyone who has said that "it should abate by the second trimester" HAAAAAAAA. Yeah you don't start a pregnancy puking that much only to magically feel 100% better once the clock turns week 14. More like you keep most of your food down and it's a pregnancy miracle worth celebrating with cheese-steak)
ANYWAYS! How about a quick photo summary of the last few weeks?
My daughter and I got to be guest judges for the Gingerbread House competition at Glow - the completely revamped winter festival at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens:
For Thanksgiving we went to a family reunion in PA and then continued on to DC to visit our friends for real this time:
|Rufus was happy we made it this time.|
And the Space Shuttle Discovery:
And the landing thingy for Apollo 11 which blew my mind:
|seriously how did they ever convince astronauts any of this was a good idea?|
In the calm between my daugther's sick and my sick we decorated a bit and went to a bar for some football:
We also cleaned out our crazy hoarder basement. It was pretty insane down there. Once we sorted and removed the layers of baby crap it felt like visiting an apartment we used to live in. But it's time to move on and we have listed quite a bit of the nonsense on Craigslist. Such as this wonderful pool table:
elliptical that we acquired accidentally that I have literally never (and will never) used.
So yeah. I think that's about it for now. Hopefully now that I'm over the worst of it I'll be back to this space with some regularity again. I miss blogging the same way that I miss so many things I haven't been able to do lately (knitting, eating solid foods, dying yarn, functioning as an adult, etc.)
