Things I don't like that a lot of people do like:
Cupcakes (unless they are cut in half)
Garlic (especially mixed with mashed potatoes)
Thing I wonder:
Do people sneeze in their sleep?
Things I did today:
Got mad at the cat for peeing outside her box then realized that the wall in the laundry room is leaking after smelling the wet paper towel.
The weather yesterday:
Thing I wonder:
Why do I compulsively smell everything?
Things I have to do today:
pack my bags
set out large bowls of food and water for the cat
Thing I have to do tomorrow:
Fly to Vegas
What I plan to eat for Thanksgiving dinner:
What I order at Fatburger:
Veggie burger with egg, cheese, mayo, ketchup, lettuce, tomato, pickle.
Thing I think is funny:
One of Jake's holiday spelling words this week at school is "Indian"
Thing I think sounds racist these days:
Asking a child to sit 'Indian Style'
Thing I'm trying to be in denial about:
My hair is falling out again.
Things I think sound inadvertently sexual:
Any sort of adjective in front of the word 'style'
Anything said with air quotes
Thing I think is hilarious but I haven't thought of in a long time:
Replacing the word "gas" with the word "pussy"

Other thing I have to do today:
Take my child to the eye doctor because he failed his School Nurse Eye Exam
Also, he is 45 pounds and 44 3/4 inches.
He is taller than a lot of his classmates, which comes as a surprise to me but checking the CDC charts he is just above the 50th percentile for height and almost to the 75th percentile for height. Not bad for a kid who was born at the 50th for height and the 5th for weight.
Thing I know the hard way:
It's really hard on the heart to have a baby who is marked Failure to Thrive for the first six months of life.
Especially being in the field I work in and knowing what is implied by that label.
Thing I'm trying not to do but am failing miserably:
Things I'm thankful for:
Everything that I have and the ability to work for everything I need.
Also, I'm thankful for a lot of things I don't have, like bill collectors ringing me up and blood-born illnesses coursing through my body
Everybody have a happy and stress-free Thanksgiving.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by all the familial going-ons, eat more.
It always helps.
(so does running away to Vegas)
