New Friend in the Blog World

Everyone say hello to Carly. "Life According to Carly Q". Her blog is now listed in my roll.

She's another mommy trying her best in this crazy world of parentdom and recently started blogging. She so kindly found this blog o' mine and made some nice comments. :)

I think she is a great addition.

I Hate Fn Drugs!

Damn it, damn it, damn it! Expect more that sucks....

So...Kenzie has pink eye. I knew that was what she had Saturday. Luckily the doctor gave me extra drops the last time she had pink eye so I started giving her the drops Saturday night.

Tonight I start feeling like my eyes are itchy and I think "oh great, I'm getting pink eye now too".. the doc told me last time if I felt like I was getting it to just use the drops I did tonight. Fuck if it doesn't have an anithistimine in it....

Unlike most people who get drowsy with an antihistimine I have the opposite reaction. So there I was at midnight, lying in my bed having hot flashes, my heart beating 100 mph, and with the shakes. I KNEW it was the eye drops but I was so messed up at the time that I didn't want to get up and look it up on the internet.

So now it's like 2 am and I'm up and typing and waiting for the drugs to start wearing off so I can settle down and go to sleep. At least I know I'm not losing my mind.... stupid ass drugs. Why can't I just be like most folks and get sleepy instead of wired.

Now I just feel sick to my stomach and all jumpy and shit. This sucks...

And now my Castles at the Beach!

We went to Florida this year for our July vacation. Found a lovely area not overdeveloped. We had a nice quiet beach house with white sand on the ocean. Loved It!!

Built two awesome least we think they were. Here are our two efforts. :)

This first one is more of a traditional castle...a moat around the towers, bridge to the castle, open center for the girls to put their toys in.

This next castle was inspired by too many late nights watching King Kong movies and other sacrifice the virgin type shows...

Notice the grand central tower, huge moat and walls, crude wooden structures and the final touch...the guards. Some transformer dude and a couple of plastic sharks.

A Return to Older Ways

Sunday used to be poetry day. I think I shall try that again. I like poetry, I like to read it, I like to share it, and sometimes I even think that I can write it...

Looking foward to the next few months and my favorite time of year...a haiku. I think it is not that great..but I tried.

Autumn is now here
Crisp breeze blows bright reddish leaves
Crunch crunch underfoot
