What's a Girl to do at 4:53 in the Morning?
Write a totally random blog post... of course!
  • Little Bug got up around 3:45. Hubby got up with him. Apparently he wanted breakfast and a potty break. Go figure. I don't think he's fallen back asleep yet... but I sent Hubby back to bed seeing as how I can't sleep anyway...
  • Why can't I sleep? Well, exactly one half of my nose is plugged up. It's so plugged that I cannot even blow my nose and it keeps randomly running down my face... while I sleep. Can I get an EWWW?? Thank you.
  • I am not done making Halloween costumes. Slacker Mom of the Year. Baby Girl's costume isn't even started. Luckily - she's flexible. She dug into the dress-up box and went to school as a clown yesterday and tonight she's going to be a princess. Not the fairy princess that she wanted, but no one ever really gets what they want, right? Well, unless you're Red. Then you get your Jedi costume - no matter what. I've been promising to make him one for 2 years... this year he's holding me to it.
  • And speaking of making things... I'm using a Simplicity pattern for this costume. May I just get something off my chest here.... THERE IS NOTHING SIMPLE ABOUT A SIMPLICITY PATTERN! There. I feel better. I measured Red and bought the pattern that SHOULD have worked. The Jedi robe fits my husband... since it was a one size fits all type thing... and the tunic fits me. I wonder what the models look like that they base their sizing off of??
  • We had a ghoulish dinner last night and then watched old episodes of "The Addams Family" on Netflix. I'll try to do a Halloween post with costumes and food stuff later... maybe tomorrow.... or next week... or... um... sometime.
  • I get to host book club at my house in a few weeks. We're reading "The Hunger Games" and may I just say how much I love that book? Have you read it? If not, I highly recommend it! If you have read it, would you like to help me brainstorm a bit? Can you think of any discussion questions? I have a thought of few already ... but I'd like to hear from you guys :)
AND....... I can breathe! The nasal decongestant has kicked in...which means I can now blow my nose! And I think Little Bug finally fell asleep! Can I get a w00t? Yeah... probably not at 5 a.m. Maybe later...
Welp. I'm gonna see if my brain will let me go back to bed for awhile. Happy Halloween!!

Let's see--Ewwwwww. Glad the decongestant has kicked in. Hope you get some rest before you have to tackle those costumes--particularly that "Simplicity" pattern, which I agree is just a name that has nothing to do with the pattern.

You are hardly the "Slacker Mom of the Year"--I've been reading your blog for a long time and know that hardly fits your description.

Happy Halloween.

Yay for being able to breathe again! And good luck with the Halloween chaos!

I'm finally going to read Hunger Games, since it looks like an extended hospital stay isn't in my future (woot!) and I'd better read it before Claira arrives. Eeep! Running out of time here!

hope you can breath soon. ;)

i picked up the book, hunger games, because of what you had to say about it after reading it a while back. but it's still sitting on my shelf. i WILL get to it one of these days.

Magirk said...

Um, Ewwwwww!

But, ACK! If I were up at 4:53 in the morning, I would most likely be crying over the sleep I were losing. :-S

I agree about those Simplicity patterns, totally NOT simple.

Good luck with the book club!

And I hope you get better sleep in the nights to come! ;-) ALL of you.

I've been wanting to read The Hunger Games for awhile now! Thanks for the recommendation!

I just finished the HG. And CF. Within a 48 hour period, I might say. I loved them Melissa and definitely have some great ideas for discussion topics it you want to brain storm with me.
