home again, home again

i am focusing on the above picture today because:

1. it contains my beautiful nephew, upon whose face i shall never tire of gazing.
2. it reminds me of a happier time, a time when my children were not bugging the shit out of me.

and someone? anyone? please remind me next time
that saturday (the day before sunday/church day)
is maybe not the best day
to bring exhausted children back
from a fun-filled vacation with their grandparents.

i'd like to think that if we had had even one more day to rest things could have turned out differently.

1. K would not have told my pregnant friend she was going to have an evil baby with a monster head.

2. it would have ocurred to neither E nor K to jump on stage as church was starting in order to show everyone the new, cool BAD GUY laugh that grandpa donut taught them. (MWAA-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaaa!!!!).

3. when greeted by an adult, they would have been able to think of something a bit more polite than, "YOU ARE A POOPY HEAD!" or " I THINK YOU HAVE A STUPID POOP NOSE!" to say in return.

hee hee. And here I was shuddering over my daughter telling a perfect stranger that 'Mommy has a big tummy. But she's not having a baby.'

And then the kicker...'She just loves hamburgers.'

WHERE DO THEY GET THIS STUFF???

i am going to focus on that cute picture because:

1. it takes my mind off the fact that my entire house smells like urine, due to the fact that MY three year old, who is perfectly ABLE to pee in the potty when she has to, has decided that she would RATHER pee on the couch, futon, floor, carpet, etc., mainly because she is pretending to be a baby and babies do NOT pee in the potty.

2. They do not look cranky, which is how all the children that live in my house look lately.

Argh. And now they are back from a walk with their daddy. Hide the cushions.

With a header like yours I couldn't resist checking out your blog. Glad I did. My 3 also supply me with endless writing material. They are also the reason for the bald patches on my head (kidding- a little). They really are the reason my tubes are tied though!

Zoloft Side Effects said...

My name is Thomas Kane and i would like to show you my personal experience with Zoloft.

I am 57 years old. Have been on Zocor for 3 months now. My experience is that there is a minimal dose required to be effective, and that there is a maximum dose above which the effectiveness wears off. At the proper dose, the effect is darned near magic. Whoever said that the generic is not as good as the real Zoloft is exactly right. There is a profound difference, and it's not made up by increasing the dose. The drug acts very quickly, and the loss of sexual desire is almost immediate. I haven't gained weight yet, but I can see how it would be possible. I have a yearning for donuts and recommend an aggressive program. Also, the combination with alcohol is seductive...watch out.

I have experienced some of these side effects -
difficulty maintaining a quality diet; difficulty getting up in the morning

I hope this information will be useful to others,
Thomas Kane
