Because, I'm the Mom!

I usually try to keep things on this blog writing-related, but since I consider my most important job title to be "Mom" first and "Writer" second, I just had to post this hilarious video from You Tube. And I guess I'm feeling rather nostalgic and particularly "mom-ish" tonight because my "baby" just turned 8 years old! He was born around 10:20 p.m. -- 1 hour and 40 minutes shy of being a Leap Day baby, which would have been both strange and cool at the same time. I know I wouldn't mind only having a birthday every 4 years! So in honor of Trey's birthday -- here's "The Mom Song." Enjoy!

In other news... I have now finally joined the ranks of high-speed Internet users, hallelujah! Which means I spend way more time surfing the Web than I should. All in the name of "research," of course!

Ever Feel Like This?

This hilarious comic from Debbie Ridpath Ohi at inkygirl is right on the money. With three kids 11 and under, this is exactly the way I feel 99.9% of the time. As a matter of fact, as soon as I get over this cold (yep, I'm still sick), I'll be outside, building my igloo.

Sick as a ?

Now that my most pressing deadlines are over (hallelujah!), I have to come up with a really good excuse for not blogging. So how about this? I'm sick as a dog. Not sure where this phrase came from, because my dog, Coda, (above) rarely -- if ever -- gets sick. Except when he got hit by a car, which is another story in itself. I'll have to do some research on where this phrase originated -- maybe later when I don't have a fever. So, why am I blogging at my computer instead of lounging in bed, you ask? Well, right now, my fever is artificially lowered due to the 3 Advil I took, and my head, although still feeling suspiciously like a bowling ball, is light enough to hold erect for a few minutes. Also, I'm afraid I may be addicted to the Internet. Is there a rehab clinic for that? More later when I'm feeling like a human being again...
