All kinds of fun

I'm pissy today, probably because I'm fighting a mild sickness and it sorta feels like the boogers might be winning. My arsenal is zicam rapid melts, vitamin C and lots and lots of tea with local honey and lemon. What am I missing? Oh, I also spent all day yesterday with my ass plastered to the couch watching back to back episodes of Lost.

The result of this is that today, my head is still pounding, my throat is still sore, but I also feel lethargic, doughy and brain dead. Win! I worked out this morning, after a 3 day reprieve, thinking that maybe I just needed to sweat it all out. Am kind of thinking this was a wee bit stupid.

On the mothering front, I'm feeling a little substandard lately...work and my volunteer stuff and just plain old life has been demanding and I just feel like my nerves are frayed by the end of the day. Its so hard to be fighting with a now two-year-old who wants to do everything "AH BAH MAH-SELF!!!!!"

90% of the time, he is an absolute joy- so quick with the "love you!"'s and hugs and giggles and silliness but then we'll reach that point where we NEED to be out the door or getting dressed or picking up toys and he will just completely lose his shit. I know its totally normal but some days I close my eyes, count to 10 and wish for nothing more than just a generous helping of Patience because I can feel my blood pressure rising and the desire to just throw my own self down on the carpet and tantrum right along with my kid.

I know. I'm so adult.

I vote for tantruming with him. Do it.

Also... We watched seasons 1 thru 5 of Lost in less than 6 weeks. So... I win. ;) Now we are going through major withdrawals and realizing we should have paced ourselves. I'm coping by reading ridiculous amounts on lostpedia. Especially the character/theory pages. Shiiiit.

At any rate, I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is ass.

Jasie, I'm just starting season 4...after that not sure what I'll do with myself :-) I'll have to check out lostpedia because I find myself being sucked in.

I totally get the two thing. It continues to kick my ass. Tantrum with him. It totally freaks them out and the confused look is worth it alone.

HAHAHA Amelia, good to know. It would freak him out.
