This presentation is brought to you by Cranky, Sleepy, and Sickly, three of the popular house dwarves, who have managed visits to several Pixies and are now in residence chez moi. Let's hope everybody is feeling better, STAT.
The coveted Elevated Risk of Mullet Award goes to our Sue, for this gem: "Unsolicited middle-of-the-night Pixie advice: Playing Angry Birds is not conducive to relaxation and sleep." Runner-up is Liz, who adds: "Angry Birds is nothing NOTHING compared to Plants Vs. Zombies on the not conducive to sleeping front."
Sarah brings the fluids, and also wins a triple-header Old Skool Award for this: "Last night the 3yo peed in my bed, the 7yo had a nightmare and the 10yo had an ear infection. All in the course of 2 hours."
But wait, there's more! Sarah wins the Grace Under Awkward Circumstances Tiara because this happened on soon-to-be-ex's night, while he slumbered on obliviously, with a Kids First Sash for trying to work it all out in the least disruptive way for the young ones.
Esperanza wins her Own Medical Clinic; this is about week 43 of the sickness festivities, and this week featured her own lingering illness, Sweet's visit to the pulmonologist, and -- ta da! -- hives. Listen up, Universe! Enough!
The Running on Empty Award goes to Purple Kangaroo, whose hubby could use a little retraining on matters like finding a gas station at the appropriate time. Our Best Wishes in thrashing your way through the insurance jungle, too.
Days wins the Excellent In-Law Lottery, with three of her kids headed off for Ski! Week! with Grandparents! Hugs and crossed fingers about the trip back to NYC. xoxo
Happy Birthday to Liz's Muffin Man, who has achieved double digits! How did that happen??
Congratulations to Sue, whose head is so much better, and who has a sabbatical coming up!
Good Luck to Sarah, with the interview today!
Cluesticks to the K0men people, who failed to persuade us of their commitment to health when they defunded cancer screening for poor women.
Thanks for playing! See you next week, when the lovely Esperanza will host!
ETA: JenR wins the Walkin' Pneumonia and teh Boogie Woogie Blues Award, for her late-breaking tale of pediatric medical sorrows. May the antibiotics be with you!
