Random Tuesday-Sicko Edition

I am having a hard time concentrating today (big surprise there), so I am doing my first "official" Random Tuesday post. This is the brain child of Keely over at the UnMom. You can thank her later. Oh an Captain Dumbass, he is the King of Random, you should go over and read his post for today. I haven't read it yet, but I am sure it will probably make you pee yourself laughing. OK now, lets bring on the random.

* I don't know if I have gone to the bathroom by myself in the last 5 years. If I don't have one of the kids in there the dog or the cat feel the need to come in there with me. Sam the cat wants me to turn on the facet for him so he can get a drink, and Elizabeth figures that I can't escape so it is time for forced cuddles.

* I am still sick. I have some good days and some "will someone just please take me out back and end this swiftly because I think I am dying and I think I just coughed up some of my lung and it is sitting right there please just shoot me" days. I have also learned that if I raise my voice to yell at my kids it will throw me into an uncontrollable bronchitis induced coughing fit. This also happens when I laugh hard.

* Last night when my husband was surfing though the tv channels, Elizabeth jumped up on his lap and rolled onto her back so he would pet her tummy (she always wants her belly rubbed). His response was "EWWW get your old lady nipples away from me, beast!" They look funny because of her having the puppies and them actually getting used there for a while. I laughed really hard at this and then went into a coughing fit. Then called Liz over to me so I could give her some lovin' and sooth her hurt feelings.

* My kids think I am awesome because I let them play with play-doh and paint all in one day. The truth is that I was just too sick to deal with them begging and it was just easier to let them have their way.

* Yes my lens on my camera was dirty when I took those pictures. I have cleaned it since then. I took these pictures yesterday of my back garden. Spring is springing.

(As usual these are best seen big. Click on the Pics)

* Last night I was trying to get the girls into their PJ's for bed and I called KiKi to me to change her pull up. She came over to me and took the pull up off. Then she took off running (naked now mind you). I tried to call after her, which threw me into a coughing fit and my husband into a laughing fit.

*Oh and Dawn at Bee and Rose is having a ginormous giveaway at her place for her 100th post. You need to go over there and try to win something. Plus she is funny as heck too so you might have a new blog to follow as well.

*Last 10 Songs
-The Proclaimers "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
-The Killers "Somebody Told Me"
-The Gourds "Gin and Juice"
-Metallica "Broken Beat and Scarred"
-The Toadies "Possum Kingdom"
-Alice in Chains "Heaven Beside You"
-Hall and Oates "Maneater"
-Rush "Tom Sawyer"
-Warren G "Regulate"
-Darius Rucker "Don't Think I Don't Think About It"

Take care everyone. Love ya. Mean it. Smooches!

Does two kids plus a day of playdough and paint equal a hideous mess?!

When you mentioned your smudged lens I was reminded a moment of Captain Dumbass's dirty sunglasses - not that they were in fact dirty.

Actually, taking a photo through his sunglasses may be quite a fun thing to do...

Still sick? Geez. Get better already.

Dawn Parsons Smith said...

You poor girl! I'm sorry you are still so sick:( {{big hugs}}

I have the same "Visitor" issues with the bathroom too...ugh! I try to even sneak in there, but they still find me!

Thank you for the linky love! I really wish I could enter my own giveaway!

(Love your photos! I wish we could grow things like that here in AZ. It's all brown and ugly
Get well wishes are on their way!

Cammie said...

seriously....what is it with kids/pets wanting to be with you in the BATHROOM. They dont do this with daughter thinks the best time ever is to sit on my lap while Im in there for pete's sake

Joanie said...

I've been taking Mucinex for my bronchitis and it seems to be working (along with steroids and Levaquin) I'm coughing, but it's productive. I don't feel so short of breath now. Give it a try!

Michele said...

Bathroom visitors never go away. My dog still wants to spend time with me in there. I tell him; "I don't need any help." and he leaves. Wish that would have worked on the kids.

i'm jealous of your spring but not of your phlegm - feel better kat!

Jess said...

OMG! Let me give you a high five on the Warren G! That is SOOOOO my JAM!

GUESS WHAT?!? I am sick toooooooooooo! It all started with a stuffy nose and now it has drained into my chest and I am coughing up some nasty ass shit. Way to put germs on the internet!

Jen said...

I love these random posts. And will you get better already!

Expat No. 3699 said...

My dogs follow me in too. The worse part? Even though they know what I'm doing in the toilet they still insist on drinking out of it. (AFTER I FLUSH!!)

Get better soon, for Pete's sake!

Jenny Grace said...

I'm pretty sure I can count on my two hands the number of solo showers I've gotten to take since the entrance of Gabe into my life.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Get better soon! And the randomness was great, even if you are sick!

Lola said...

I feel terribly lonely on that rare opportunity that I get to pee all by myself ;)

Feel better, and you lucked out inheriting the pretty flowers, girl!

Your garden is coming along nicely. I have those purpley flowery things on long stems that get longer and longer through the summer.

Poor Elizabeth and her saggy nipples.

PS, If you need a fix - try Costco, think that's as close to one of your big stores we get.

ChurchPunkMom said...

Get better hon.. and don't read Captain Dumbass's post today.. we don't need you losing the rest of your lung.

Cameron said...

Get better, sicko ;)

Oh I hope you're feeling better!

Great garden pics! Love it!

Naked running story, priceless.

for a different kind of girl said...

As if your post wasn't random enough, I get to the end and see your last 10 songs, and I think that takes the random cake! It also feels like home because I love all those songs, and wouldn't be surprised if they cropped up in some rotation I was playing!

Here all our gardens are going into hibernation as the days get shorter!

Have a great Easter.

steenky bee said...

I love that Rush was on your playlist. Speaking of yelling so hard that it causes a physical reaction, did you ever see Malcom on the Middle? One time the mom yelled so loud that she threw her back out. No joke.

Isn't Dumbass the Seinfeld of Blogging? His ransoms are so much fun!

If you're only coughing up lungs, you'll be okay. No need to worry until you see shoes flying out of your face. =D

Totally forgetting that you had mentioned Captain Dumbass in your post, I jumped back over here from his site to let you know that my little one is talented like KiKi. How?? How in THEE world do they do that? Sometimes I wonder/worry that it's broken.

Captain Dumbass said...

I am so proud, padawan. Or should I say, Phlegm-bo?

And in answer to mo, I have taken pictures through my sunglasses. You should try it, cool results.

Cape Cod Gal said...

You are still sick? Did The Man try to give you "the cure"? That always happens when I'm sick. It doesn't work. Don't fall for it!

Mama Dawg said...

I love random posts.

You are an awesome mom for the paint and play doh day. I hate play doh.

Cough! I also require an escort when I go to the bathroom.

Hope your bronchials are starting to improve.
