I'm tougher then a grizzly and other random thoughts

It's the Tuesday before Christmas and remember that to do list? It just got thrown out the window. The preschooler brought a little cold into the house. That morphed in to an ear infection in him and the most horrid bronchitis I have had in a very long time. So Christmas? Well it just go downsized, the gift to everyone this Christmas is that we will be there, upright, hopefully showered, and possibly not leaving bits of lung here and there.


My cat won't drink from a bowl, it must be a cup. Preferably one somewhere hard to get to where his head doesn't fit. Since his head doesn't fit he tips it over.

I used to like animals but now that I am a mom, it's just another thing to discipline, feed and clean up after and I think I am done. Especially if this one doesn't start drinking from a bowl and letting me sleep past 4 am.


I think it would be awesome if all those stupid little cards that the stores give you could hold account information too. Or if I could scan my credit card into my phone and just show the cashier the phone. Because when your sick, tired, a little emotional and spend an hour walking around Target you will break down into tears when you realize your wallet is in your diaper bag and not your purse.


I miss my BFF's. If I was filthy rich I would rent a huge cabin in the mountains, or in Yellowstone and I would spend Christmas there surrounded only by people who love me and my kids for who we are. There would be no expectation of gifts. No stress over how much to bake, make and buy. We would enjoy each others company and the beauty of the natural world around us.


Speaking of Yellowstone. We watched Christmas in Yellowstone on Nature the other night (we are so geeky!) and learned this: Grizzly Bears weigh 400 pounds and give birth to 4 pound cubs while they are hibernating.

I gave birth to two almost 9 lb babies, and I was awake.

I am totally tougher then a grizzly bear.


That's all I got because my head is full of snot and I can't put together a grammatically correct sentence to save my life. If you need me, I'll be in bed. If you need more Random Thoughts, head over to The Un Mom
