Coming Up Next Week (or, What I Didn’t Write This Week)

I’d pretend to be sorry for the lack of blogging this week but, truth be told, I’ve had a nice week despite the fact that all of us are dealing with various health issues here in the FireHouse. I had things that I really wanted to write this week but I just ran out of time. Blame it on the fact that the random cold snap finally ended and we spent all day yesterday outside. And croup. And, and, and.

Blame aside, I’ve just been busy. But next week, I’ve got it all lined up. I know. New, right? Coming up next week:

1. Baseball. That’s right. I said baseball! And not just on Wii; REAL Baseball!

2. A book giveaway! Wee!

3. The update for May’s Goals. Oh, it’s not good.


4. A Big, Bad Book Review. I say “Big” and “Bad” because it’s a dual book review (hence the big) and actually (politely) demolishes one of the two (hence the bad). Curious?

5. More on Wii Fit. And other exercises. And some food. And, oh, the importance of sleep.

And so, come back next week. The fun starts on Monday. Now? We’re headed back to The Farm this weekend. Why? My best friend and her husband are baptizing their son this weekend and we wouldn’t miss it for the world. Plus, another weekend on The Farm will do my soul some good. (I get so homesick…)

Also, because I’m researching a topic for the following week, if you ever have a fire safety related question for your home and family, please don’t hesitate to ask. I was contacted (via our contact form) to cover a certain topic and will be doing so the following week. Don’t be shy. Ask away! FireDad is full of knowledge and sometimes he shares enough that I know things, too! And if I don’t know, I’ll bribe it out of him with some home cooked meals.

Enjoy your weekend! We will! (I mean, it would have to be better than last weekend, right?)

When It Rains…

What a weekend. And not in a super-great, “gee-that-was-fun” way either.

1. LittleBrother had to go to the hospital on Saturday for an “emergency weight check.” Words like “Failure to Thrive” were thrown around. He goes to the pediatrician tomorrow for follow up, possible diagnosis and maybe a battery a tests.

2. BigBrother went to the Emergency Room last night because he woke up in a panic and couldn’t breathe well. Turns out the kid has croup. He’s feeling okay today. My question: how long before LittleBrother barks like a seal?


3. I now have a sore throat and cold but no time to nurse myself with two little ones that need my attention. I am drinking Thera Flu and sticking Zicam up my nose.

4. I mentioned before that LittleBrother proved that “breastfed poop doesn’t smell” was a myth. Well, I decided to prove one bunk myself. Know how they say that nursing Moms don’t have a cycle? Welcome to the absolute epitome of how my weekend went!

Also: we sat in front of some jagoffs at the baseball game, BigBrother fell while running across gravel and skinned his knees, LittleBrother decided with the addition of solids to his diet that he didn’t want to poop so he was grump about that (he did finally poop though… a lot… and by a lot… I mean… WHOA), LittleBrother is also going through his six month growth spurt so he didn’t sleep ALL weekend and, to boot, I haven’t watered my flowers in a week because they keep saying it will rain here and it keeps missing us and so my flowers look heinous and wilted and that makes me angry.

Is there any possibility of a do-over on this past weekend? I’d like a nice relaxing holiday weekend. To go, please.
