Thank You Very Much

Ahh, free therapy time - courtesy of KMama and The Daily Dribbles! Head on over and get your fill of things we're grateful for this week!

The Daily Dribbles

To the lovely flu bug that decided to take up residence in our household for the SECOND time this young winter... Thank You Very Much. I truly enjoyed spending two nights without sleep and without any apparent control over my body temperature. For all the achy joints and nausea, Thank You Very Much.

And to the nasty head cold bug that ALSO found its way back here... Thank You Very Much for the snot factory that overtaken my son and prompted him to begin wiping his mess on any and all articles of my clothing. Thanks as well for the chapped lips right before picture day. And for timing your arrival along with my flu bug... Thank You Very Stinkin Much.

~

To the Thomas The Tank Engine millionaires... you guys realize the little train is like 70 years old, right? So stick with your 1400 episodes from the past several decades, instead of adding new characters every week. New characters that my son just begs Mommy to get on the computer and buy for him. While I am tripping over the "old" characters as I put him to bed. Yeah, Thank You Very Much.

To the health insurance policies that punish employees for being married, Thank You Very Much.  And the new $250 annual deductible increase was a lovely touch.

It’s a heckuva week already – this has been great therapy!

I am SO sorry that you guys are sick again! Grrrr... germs, be gone! I hate that whole snot thing; the little girls next door both have a touch of it, and it makes them grumpy and whiny. And when they cry, they actually blow these bubbles out of their little noses that just gross me out. Hoping that ALL of you dry out, cool off, and feel better!

Kmama said...

I'm so sorry you guys are sick again. That's terrible. No one deserves that once, let alone twice!!

Ugh. I can relate to being sick, that is for sure. The flu has gone into bronchitis and that is no fun. then I went to the eye doctor this morning and now I can't see right because they dilated my eyes and didn't warn me how bad it was going to be!

I have resided with the fact I cannot wear black during this time of year. I had a black shirt on a few days ago and when I looked in the mirror at the end of the day I realized I was completely covered in snot and here I thought the baby was just excited to see me all day when she was rubbing her face on me! It was lovely! Grrrr insurance! The reason I am now a stay-at-home mom because they were charging us more because I worked then what I was bringing home.

Ugh, hate that you have been sick but doesn't something always happen right before pictures?!

Emily said...

Man, y'all are sick again!? NO FUN! :( And I'm sooooo glad my kids never got into Thomas.

HeatherOz said...

Geez! So sorry about all of the sickiness (that's how my son says it)! I feel your pain, girl!
My boys loved the Thomas show but luckily didn't go crazy about having the toys! Yes!

He & Me + 3 said...

Stunt Man is not into Thomas the Train...I guess I should be thankful huh? Sorry you are fighting the sickness again over there. No fun.

Oh, oh... the right before pictures thing made me think of a True Story! yippeee... thank you for jogging my ancient, cob-webby brain! heeeee!

Danielle said...

Stopping by from Kmama. We too have had the flu twice this year. I am hoping your family feels better soon

xoxo Danielle

OMG that was a lovely read
you have a way of making light of tough situations
SOOO right about the thomas situation

Brandi said...

Blah to sick germs. We're going on week 2. Everyone feels better, but the noses just won't stop running!!! Hope y'all feel better soon. :)

Jodi Thornton said...

Boo for being sick! Feel better soon! And I know what you mean with insurance woes. Same thing happening here.

:)

Lisa said...

Sick AGAIN?!?! Well, Mr. Daddy is in the elderly age group that is at high risk for illness and flu, cough cough, so that could be where it comes from.

And I TOTALLY get you with the Thomas thing. There are like a gazillion charactors, new ones are NOT necessary.

Hope you all feel better soon. And stay better.

K said...

thank youso much for your kind comment on my blog
you totally made me day

Foursons said...

Oh girl if I were you I'd be screaming "Why me?!!!" by now. I hope you all get better soon and stay well- especially through the holidays.

And to the insurance company, "Bite me."

Sorry to hear you guys have been sick. And yet you still manage to make me laugh all week (well, laugh and blush on Sunday). I feel your pain on the Thomas the Train characters. I mean, really, does he have to be friends with everyone on the Island of Sodor? It's enough to turn me into Cranky the Crane when we're at the store.

Hope you're better soon.
