Double Duty

This morning Sam and I went to Stroller Strides, and then this afternoon we went to the Y so I could work out and Sam could play. If you don't hear from me again it's because I've collapsed into a heap and was unable to de-heap myself. I am so drained that I cannot for the life of me think of anything to blog about.

Who am I kidding? I have plenty to blog about, just nothing very interesting. Unless you're my mother.

Like how I woke up at 3am with my right boob on fire for no apparent reason. It was all swollen and throbby, and I was achy all over. I took some tylenol and applied warm compresses, and it's feeling a tiny bit better. If I have mastitis nearly nine months into this whole breast feeding thing, I'm going to be pissed.

Like how Dr. SOB broke my jogging stroller last night because men know everything about mechanical things like pumps and tires, except for when they don't.

Like how silly Sacha Baron Cohen has been getting the shit end of the stick for making one of the funniest movies ever. Reportedly. I haven't seen it yet because, well, you know.

Like how I spent an hour making a delectable piquant cheese sauce for macaroni and cheese only to find out that we have zero macaroni.

Like how I inadvertently scheduled a mom's night out at Dinner A'Fare on the same day Sam will be getting his nine month vaccinations. Dad will not be happy.

See, I told you it was boring. Will this make up for it?

I wish your mac & cheese had worked out.

Maybe it's just me, but I kinda like hearing about the "inconsequential"... makes me feel like maybe my life isn't the only one that revolves around nap schedules and lofty plans that don't turn out the way I hoped.

And, you use the words like "delectable" and "piquant". That alone puts you in the running for the coveted "Blog So Much More Interesting Than A Word-A-Day Calendar" award. I hear they'll be giving those out soon... :)

The mac and cheese was salvaged by a quick trip to the super market. Thank god it's across the street!

Susan - It's a honor just to be nominated!
