No Title Because There is Really No Point to This Post

Wow. I've been reading some really deep and thought provoking blogs lately that are making me feel like mine sounds something along the lines of "blah, blah, blah and then I blah, blah, blahed and then here are some pictures of the kids blah, blahing......".


But, then I remembered that the main reason I started to blog was to make a journal for generations to come. I've always half heartily tried to journal, you know, on paper, but I'd start writing while I would be laying in bed one night and next thing you know I'm waking up with a big drool mark on the page that contains a lonely paragraph. So, this whole "blob" thing seems to be working for me. So, there. Now, I feel better admitting I'm okay with my random and sometimes shallow posts!

In fact, right now I'm actually watching #3 fish her Claritin pill out of her green plastic cup of Turkey Hill Diet Green Iced Tea. I think it is important to document that because none of my other kids could swallow a pill at the age of six. Never mind that she is supposed to be in bed and wanted to take her pill with juice. No way am I opening a whole entire juice box to swallow one little pill and she says it gets stuck with water. She needed allergy medicine because she was laying in #1's room where the cat that they are ALL allergic to lives most of the time. I certainly can't give the cat full run of the house or The Dog will turn her into something that resembles what I drive by regularly on the side of the road. Although, it's not like she was ever very friendly before The Dog came to live here. I can't bear to get rid of her, we've had her since she was a kitten and now she's almost 8 years old. No one even knows we have a cat. Seriously. I've had friends that I've known for years that ask me when I got a cat. It's sad. My only consolation is that she's getting old and hopefully, one day soon, she'll fall asleep and never wake up. Then, I don't have to feel so guilty that the kids are allergic to a pet that lives in a basement and ignores us except when she's hungry. Why oh why do I seem to completely mess up every animal I've ever had??!

How did I go off on that tangent? Now, #3 is standing on a counter stool getting an ice cube out of the freezer to put on her nose. See how helpful I am? I'm typing on my blog and The Husband is playing Xbox while the 6-year old roams the house trying to breathe at 9:56pm. I'd be lying if I told you this was the first time.

So, it's time to put my mommy hat back on (I really just wanted to zone out a bit and write about the $11 winter coat I bought for #1 at Boscov's today). But, as I remind myself again and again, I have the rest of my life to zone out and only a short time to wipe runny noses and sing my little ones to sleep!

I enjoy your "blob", and amidst the blah blah blah (which actually is amusing and points to the reality of life) you have quite a few deep posts yourself. But if every post were deep, it might be too much to read.

Your blogs are never filled with Blah, Blah, Blah. It is always good stuff. That's why I keep coming back for more!!!!

After reading your blog, I always realize that I am not in "this" alone.
