Spring Break on the couch...

Spring break... so not such a great start to the week! I was at the Dr. twice in 10 days for antibiotics. I didn't feel like blogging nor did i have anything to report except for what i was blowing out of my nose & let's be honest... there are just a few people that are interested in that & one happens to be my brother. I spent several days on the couch letting darling daughter do & eat pretty much whatever she wanted! Lucky for me i have the type of child where you can take a nap & when you wake up she's playing on the computer or sitting quietly next to you watching cartoons! No fear of this one wandering off or drinking bleach! I said to her at one point "i'm so sorry Mommy is sick & we aren't doing anything fun" to which she responded "i'm having a great time"... Did i mention we just got a Wii

& she was allowed to play this for hours upon hours? I guess when you're 5 (AND 1/2!!!) THIS is a great time: mom into letting you eat junk she normally wouldn't allow with very little effort.

    2.have the computer 100% to yourself. the Wii ALL day LONG!!!

Finally on Friday i felt like i was in the land of the living so I asked darling what she wanted to do... anything... she could pick and what did she pick?

everyone now.... Ewwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

the ONLY time i've ever eaten at McDonalds & liked it was in 1991 when i was in Hong Kong & the choice was that or a snake out of a tank... I don't get how those chicken nuggets & weak fries can make a child so happy, but, it does! Actually, though, we all know it's THE TOY! I'll give Ronald that, he does have the best toys! This week: Monsters VS Aliens.
When i woke up Friday i was thinking i have GOT to get my blog updated but what in the world do i have to say... well, i didn't realize what an exciting day i was about to have.... After we got our "food" (i went for a Mocha & some apple/walnut/yogurt thing) & i got the photo, we were just sitting there talking when excitement broke out at the local McD's! As you can see from the above photo i'm facing the bathroom- that's the men's straight ahead & the ladies is to the left (there IS a reason i'm telling you thing). You can't see it in the picture but a row of high-chairs is down that hall outside of the ladies room. Anyway... a lady (coming out of the bathroom) swings the door open as a man is walking back towards his table from the men's bathroom (that's his head behind darling BEFORE the accident). This door FLINGS open like it's made of Styrofoam! It whips open & cracks this old man in the head & throws him into the row of high chairs! The poor lady that did it was beside herself (she's probably seen those Sam B____ commercials where he promises to sue the pants of anyone that so much as scratches you). The man is slightly dazed & confused & the woman is saying "i just came in to get my dog some chicken McNuggets...." (really? why?, do you hate your dog?). The guy cleaning tables is turning in circles not sure what to do, he wants to get ice, the men is assuring him he has ice (what in your COKE? that won't be sticky at all). The goose-egg on this guys head is rising high & fast & i wonder... "would it be bad to grab a picture for my blog?" Well, after this scene settles down & they go back to their food another man wanders into the dining room with his hands FULL, he's got a full tray in one hand & a full drink carrier in the other. He walks right by us and straight for the... men's bathroom!? Does he think this is the VIP room? I'm about gagging- just the thought of that food & drink in a bathroom with all those floating bathroom spores?! I've seen those "Dateline" specials, doesn't he know about "spray" when you flush? Just about the time i'm breaking out in a cold sweat he's back out with the most confused look on his face: "where is my family?", "where's the velvet rope that keeps the others out?" "where's the tufted seating?" & "why does it smell like urine in the VIP room?". By this time i've had all the McDonalds excitement i can take so we head out for bigger & better things like... a CAR WASH! Darling says "OH goodie, i LOVE the car wash" so i go all out & order up with deluxe with the tri-color foam! Pink, Aqua blue & Yellow!!! I wish the picture showed it better, because this stuff is flying through the air like confetti at a parade! Daughter says "this is AWESOME"... some days it doesn't take much!

So, it's almost the end of our spring break and what do we have to show for it? a clean car, a growing town on My Sims, & a trash can FULL of used tissues! Today we're headed to Chuckie Cheese... Yep, darling daughters choice again! See how excited i am? I'm going to go take pictures of what i did in the art room before the infection took over my sinus's...

i'll be back: bigger, stronger & less snotty!
