Strange Week

Wednesday I was leaning over the kitchen counter, reading. My right hand was under my chin, and my left hand was behind my neck.  I felt something between my third and fourth fingers.  And?  It was this:

Apparently if you somehow stash a ladybug between your fingers, you can totally remove one of the cute red and black dotted shell pieces.  That weird piece sticking out was more like black mesh. I have no idea how long it was there. How it got there.  Why.  I was so surprised that I took the picture and then just let it walk off. Yes. In the kitchen.  Somewhere in my kitchen (because I’m typing, and i KNOW it didn’t find its way back to the space between my left 3rd and 4th fingers), is a slightly smushed, half naked ladybug.  (yes. ha ha.  better than a slightly smushed, half naked lady in my kitchen, i know.)

Later Wednesday would get even stranger. It became the Sleepless Night of Vomit.  I think I’ll spare you most of the details, but I will tell you that I ended up having to scrub multiple WALLS in the house, not just floors.  Ew.

And the dog? The dog has whooping cough.  How sad is a chocolate lab, wrapped in a chocolate blankie? He had a chill, and was grateful to be tucked in.

And you might not ever guess this in a million years, so I think I’ll tell you.  Frequently my children do things that are SO disgusting, I can’t even clean it up enough to blog it in such a way that wouldn’t make you sick and never return. Seriously. I know I gag you out sometimes, but it could actually be so much worse, you have no idea.

I swear I don’t gross out easily. Isn’t this why we read people’s blogs, to hear how foul other people’s children are? It makes us feel better about whatever is going on in our own homes.

I really, really, truly hope you have a tracker that lets you see what people Google to get to you. Because this:

“better than a slightly smushed, half naked lady in my kitchen, i know.)”

is going to get you some CRAZIES! :-) Won’t they be disappointed when it’s just a mom who chooses not to blog about the really gross-out things her kids do? By the way, I agree with Jill – you can’t gross us out beyond ever coming back. It’s just not possible!

I just got back on the computer myself after a long absence following a computer crash and the installation of a new hard drive…sigh.

ANYWAY, I just wanted to let you know that I did get your wonderful package in the mail, and was thrilled! My daughter fell in love with the coin purse and I’m afraid I may have to give it up to her and her big brown eyes!

Thank you so much…and truly, hearing about other people’s kids being gross just makes us all feel better about our own kids! I’d suggest a gross-out contest, but I’d feel really badly if I won! LOL!

Welcome back!

I’ve always heard ladybugs are a sign of good luck. Guess that’s not true. Sorry!

I guess years of watching the Ladybug Picnic on Sesame Street is not really naturalist training for identifying bug parts.

I saw the story of your blog on gospelcom, and I had to come and check it out. Being a tech guy, normally I am not one to read mommyblogs, but yours is super cool, and I’ll go ahead and capture the rss feed once I’m done commenting. Way cool!!!!
