I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

I'm such a wimp. I'm chanting 'wimp, wimp, wimp' as I type. Wait, I lost my train of thought...did I have a train of thought going? Focus, people.
I have this little bitty, baby of a cold that's kicking my butt from the inside out. That's not a pretty picture, is it? Sorry...wait, where was I going? Oh yeah...
I've got this little bitty cold, and I'm being such a wimp about it. But that's not what I'm writing about. Well, it's the start to my end, but only in the longest route possible.
Mark told me to stay in bed yesterday and drink plenty of fluids...which was my total intent. And for the most part, I did. Well, except for the part of picking up Charlies friend in the morning and taking them both to school, coming home to help Casey jump start his car and follow him to Goodyear, dropping the car off and taking Casey to school, coming home to touch up my roots (women, wouldn't it just be easier to color the whole head of hair? I hate just doing the roots. I started graying at 16, so about 5 years ago I just went blonde cause it's so much easier to blend in gray with blonde. Ahhh, pooh...where was I?), dealing with Goodyear (put a new battery in to find out it was the alternator...runs great again...thank you Goodyear) and then I went shopping for a few new clothes to wear to work. All in all, though, a pretty stay in bed sort of day.
Off on a bit of a side road, why do people call when they know you're trying to rest? How do I know that they know I'm trying to rest? Because the first thing they say is 'I know you're probably sleeping...'. Well, yeah, I was trying to, but my phone keeps ringing. If I didn't have kids I'd unplug all my phones. I know what you're thinking, 'but your kids are nearly grown, they don't need you during the day when they're at school'...HA!!! Yeah, you'd think that, wouldn't you...if you didn't have kids! Or if you didn't have my kids, anyway.
Darn it, I'm lost out in the middle of a field again. I've got to get OnStar For Bloggers.
Back on track, I've got this little bitty cold. I'd love to take some Nyquil, pull the covers over my aching, chilling body and pass out. But I can't, because I have to stay in a 'ready to go' mode till my day is done, or until all kids are home and accounted for. So...I'm doing the Dayquil. Nondrowsy my butt.
When my hero and sweetheart of a knight gets home, I know my day is over and I don't have to worry about anything anymore. So, I go to bed and take my Nyquil. I tried to watch American Idol (the guys this year are so much better than the girls, don't you think deb?) but I can't keep my eyes open. A couple hours after taking my Nyquil, I'm shivering and aching again, one nostril refuses to acknowledge it's suppose to be a passage for air, and I've got a drainage race going on at the back of my throat. I know I can't take Nyquil again already, so I take some Excederin P.M.
Finally, I'm to my point!!! Why can't meds play nice with each other?? In 20 minutes I feel like I'm on speed from hell. My mind is racing with thoughts that sane people never admit to having, my legs are twitching and kicking the dog without mercy (and no, that's not a sly way of referring to any part of Marko. Our lab, Porter, always sleeps with us), and I can't quit peeing (which means I have to keep getting out of my warm bed over and over and over).
So, while I'm laying there with my mind racing faster than Jeff Gordon on a good day, I'm thinking why can't meds play nice with each other? P.M. should go with other P.M. just like legos build off of each other, don't you think?? Why do P.M. and P.M. equal A.M. with too much caffeine?
It's like antidepressants warning that you shouldn't drink alcohol with them. Who drinks more than the depressed? Or pain pills warning you shouldn't drink...c'mon, other than the depressed, who drinks more alcohol than those who are in pain? See...I'm thinking they should all be able to get along. Help each other, contribute to the system like welfare and food stamps. If you don't want them to mix well with anything else, then make them stronger! Or, take off the every four hours instructions. Yeah, I know...brain damage, death, law suits. But, dang people...when you're needing medication, it's not the time when you're thinking your clearest.

I'm late getting ready for work. I'm a geography teacher today. I need caffeine, Dayquil, and some ibuprofen. Those should all play well together, don't you think? I can't help but wonder if I should post this or delete it, I don't know how it could have possibly made any sense, lol. There goes my day. So, read quickly people, it may disappear soon.

Your stream of thought today made me dizzy, but it was a good kind of dizzy...like when you are in an earthquake during the completion of husbandly duties (was that clean enough, lol) Hope you feel better, cannot have my blog buddy being sick, no that won't do at all.

Sometimes letting people we love find their own is good for them. Knowing how to problem is a must have skill these days. Stop assuming you can't turn off the phones.

Bad kathi, bad kathi! take the meds and hit the sack

I know how you feel...I think I've been fighting the same cold. I stayed home from work Monday but still went to school cause I had a test. Then I stayed home Tuesday and didn't go to school. I was miserable!! I'm still not 100%, but I'm much better than before. Rest and drink fluids...it does help!

Hope you feel better soon! Love ya!

First of all, let's get one thing straight here.

1. When I'm happy I drink.

2. When I'm sad I drink.

3. When I PMS, I drink.

4. When I had great sex, I drink.

5. If I won the lottery- I'll drink to that!

There's no rules on mental stability when it comes to alcohol. Just wanted to point that out.


The guys SUCH ASS BIG TIME this year! They are AWWWWFFFFUUUULLLLLLL!!!! (I'm speaking of Idols) The girls are un-fricken-real! They beat them by a landslide! No man will win this year, not because I'm a big ol' dyke --- no --- has nothing to do with me being bias due to sexual orientations...But the guys' voices are HORRIFIC!

C'mon! If you can't pick that up, you're deaf! DEAF DEAF DEAF! HEAR ME?

I need to go take my medication now.


Now I'm talking to myself.

I have had the worst day. I'm so tired, sorry for this awful response. Don't forget to watch Idols later on--special KICK OFF show...(it'll be a guy of course)

AND PLEASE....feel better? I still wuv ya lots!


From your mentally ill friend.

Man I feel for ya girl!!
I hate it when I have "medicine head". I Make myself take a nap or just sit and chill for a while when I feel that way. otherwise your body will shut you down for a while.... Take heed or you will wind up in bed for a day or two and have to call in sick and feel like your not living up to your expectations as a mom!! So listen to your body and "go underground and get some heavy rest". Who said it? name that line..
Peace Big Bill

Kathi, you didn't read the label. P.M. stands for Pseudo Meth. It's a legal form of crystal meth I think. Guess what? Nyquil keeps me up at night. So I have to take Dayquil to sleep.

I think being an insomniac makes drugs work backwards. I need meds.

I just read other comments. Now I know I need meds. Your train of "thought" in this post seemed perfectly logical to me. That means that rambling is my normal. I need help - fast.

Kat I got one thing to say to you...ROBUTUSSIN! I know I mispelled that I think, LOL! Girl ditch the NyQuil! Robutussin is what I take at the first signs of anything and it knocks it out! I don't usually get colds or the flu but this is Texas and sinus congestion is a bitch, LOL! So I take this. It is the best medicine on the market. It's number one recommended. They got about fifteen different formulas for every symptom in the world. Kathi if you love and trust me, get some Robutussin. It will knock it right out. NyQuil never did a thing for me. It was like taking water. All it does is make you sleep but it doesn't work fast enough at all.

I think the guys and girls are pretty evenly matched. My favorite, though, is Katharine. Although I'm partial to Elliot and Taylor as well.

Hope you feel better!

Kathi's just the walking pharmacy all together Dzer.

Kath, Mike advised us that we turn off our word verification thingie majiggie, and now I am getting spam for mule horses, penis enlargements as well as viagra. Now put those all together and if I really did go for these advertisements, needless to say, I'd be hung like a 'horse'. Err...I think?

It's way too early to be blogging.

Oh and don't worry Kath---I GOT Mikey boy back. I blogged about him. I even put his mugshot up on my blog.

I think you'll find this revenge quite satisfying to say the least.

let your immunse system fight the cold .. that's all you can do actually ..even the medicines they don't fight the flu/cold at all .. they just make you sleep and just tell your immunse system that hey the body has a cold. Sleep is best .. ur shaking and if you have a fever .. it's a good sign .. it tells u that the immune system is at work ..

Chicken soup (not any other soup) helps when you have flu/cold. I got my flu short last year .. thanks God i've not gotten flu since .. when I get a cold or a flu .. it's down hill for me (I have chronic sinus)
