Y’all.. this sucks. SUCKS. We need all positive thoughts our way. We have the flu. Both LB and I, but she’s taking it much worse than I am.
Day #4 of 103 fevers. If this keeps going, I’ll be on a plane to Psychoville. I hate watching her suffer.
*You can see an update of the fever at The Flingers. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers and sympathy fevers (BabyBeaux) but really, no need to suffer on our account! We do appreciate y’all thinking of us.Read more
Some very calculated paranoia, lemme tell you.
She’s been doing this head shaking thing. It’s like she’s saying “NO” but it’s out of her control. It started a week ago and has been getting worse. She does this while we’re playing. She’ll try to play with something but her head will shake no and keep her from focusing. Or I’ll be dressing her and her head will start bobbing for no reason while she plays with the tube of butt paste. In all cases, it seems that she’s out of control of her own body.

I’m afraid to go check on her. We laid her down after some Tylenol, still feevery, and I’m scared to walk in there. Why? Because “what if…”
Do you ever think that?
I’ll go look in on her and get ready for bed. Obviously, it’s been a long day. ‘Night y’all.Read more
Yet another reason I know women kick ass. The following conversation occured last night:
Mrs. Flinger, “She feels warm. I think she has a fever.”
Mr. Flinger (groggy and asleep whilst *I* take care of the baby) “um? Nah.. she’s ok.”
Mrs. Flinger, “Was she warm when you fed her earlier?”
Mr. Flinger, “..... n… o…”
Mrs. Flinger, “Ok, well, look at her, she’s flushed now. I think she has a fever. I don’t want to wake her all the way just to check, though.”
Apparently, I’m as hip as a 50 year old grandma. Ack.Read more
Do you find that the majority of parenting fall on you, the mother? Do you find that the home stuff is all to be done by you because women belong in the kitchen cooking, cleaning, and feeding/caring for the child you bore? Do you find that when she is up every night, regardless of time or duration, that it is you who has the maternal instincts to get out of your peaceful slumber, stumble into the nursery and care for the baby and regardless of poking, crying, or throwing things, the mister can sleep? It’s annoying, really.
All that work for women’s equality. All those... Read more
Have you ever considered taking off, starting over and making yourself new again? Being anything you want to be? Going to a place nobody knows you, knows your past, who you really are and being something fantastic?
I do. I used to do this physically when I was younger. I’d actually move across the country (ok, I did this twice, don’t let me sound too cool now) and just started over with a new job, new group of friends, a new life. Mostly.Read more
Seriously, though, isn’t summer supposed to be about reading? I’m so excited to read... Read more
You know how you love vacation? You know how you hate to go home? Well, think that but then throw in the fact that you *hate* where you live. This town is the slime of the state. Seriously. Everyone knows it. Meth addicts love it. Rapists love it. Oh, yes, we harbor everyone here, fair and balanced.
So, I wanted to virtually share with you some of my favorite Northwest Washington Stuff:
Uh.. if you don’t read my Moms site, you might want to for a good laugh. Holy crap.
I showed her how to post a picture. GOOD LORD she’s OUTTA CONTROL! OOOhhh, Oma! She doesn’t do ANYTHING in little bits.Read more
