Thursday Thirteen 26

Thursday Thirteen Symptoms of the Cabin Fever From the Snow Storm

1. “mommy you just relax and go to sleep and im going to trash the rest of the house.” (This is a DIRECT QUOTE)

2. Hand to Hand Poop Transfer. (by both boys today)

3. My compulsive need to offer myself up to the natural selection process. Only three eggs left? Oh no we wont make something we can stretch out. We will scramble them! And hey, why don’t we have some chocolate milk for snack. We still have a few glasses left…

4. My Valentine’s fantasy: Committing the perfect crime to get myself put in jail so I could have adult contact and be able to sleep at night. Gill got a little nervous when he heard the fantasy had elaborated itself to the point where I planned a way to bitch myself to the biggest bull in prison, thus securing safety and privilege in the prison pecking order. (Think this is idle worry? See number 3 for a recap of my survival skills).

5. He also became nervous when I offered to have buttsex with him, his boss or the weird slightly autistic guy at the plant in St. Mary’s if it would get him home sooner. (ok in my defense this was completely contextual. Not a random offer...)

6. Apparently my Blanche DuBois “Ahve always depended on the kahndness of strangahs” philosophy does not pan out in terms of magic plow fairies showing up. Couple this with not even owning a snow shovel or a PHONE BOOK to look up snow removal services and you can imagine the complications.

7. “Mommy, I need to slap both your cheeks to see if they make different sounds.” (Thank you Drake and Josh)

8. Im an educated professional adult. The grilled cheese should have never been such a struggle.

9. “Remember when I puked today?” Uh no? “Well I did on my bedroom floor but I didn’t tell you because I don’t understand you and you don’t understand me. So I thought I would wait to tell you.”

10. This.The picture I see countless times each day before the turnip shuts my work down on my fingers and giggles maniacally. (yes, I know. This was pre-mullet.)

11. Did you know that you can see the same episodes of Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, Drake and Josh and Fairly Oddparents several times in one day? How the hell many times do I have to see Josh and Mindy break up this week? Because Im up to four.

12. There was a torn apart couch in the family room that I ignored for a few days.
When I made it over there today, I found two pairs of my socks, a pacifier (the turnip has not used a pacifier in at least a year) several sippy cups, and a huge amount of junk. Oh and dog puke on the cushions. I cleaned up the dog puke and the sippy cups, took the pair of socks I knew Id wear and pushed it all back under the cushions. And the worst part is? I don’t even care.

13. Hey there mr. snow plow guy showing up at 6pm. Don’t you judge me for the way I dress my kid. He threw on the Scooby doo t-shirt and camo shorts expressly for your benefit. We were perfectly happy being naked here. Now take your 25 bucks and be gone.

Blogs I like that do TT’s because I don’t have the wherewithal to link anymore

Yeah, I think y'all have had enough snow for a while, but you made me smile. . . but then I only had one child at a time. I loved the different cheek sounds, at least I will be forewarned now if the neighbor's child asks to try it. Amazing how they just make us love them in spite of. . .

Canada said...

Okay, number 4. You and I are so insanely similar!!! I have no desire for jail (bad decor and I'd miss my tub), but I refuse to get a flu shot every year, in hopes of getting the flu and having to stay in bed for 3 or 4 days. I think the first aching/chills/fever/feeling like death day would be worth it for the remaining three during which I could lounge in bed, read as much as I want, sleep as much as I want, and have Hubby take care of the kids, make all meals, and generally cater to my every need.

Guess what? No flu, dammit!!!!!!!! The kids are six, and still no flu! I remember being such a bitch when I was pregnant and on modified bedrest for the last month, and now, I would just about sell my soul for it (not so much that I want more kids, I'm not that crazy!)

Frances said...

And here I was crying about a couple of inches of snow today.
Glad the snowplow guy showed up - hope you enjoy that first trip to the supermarket.
Know you are going to buy thee place out - I would!
Take care

I have burned grilled cheese, and spent more time than it would have to cook another scraping off the black with a butter
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

Aw, hun, sounds like you need a vacation somewhere warm. like Florida, the east coast. I know this tiny perfect little town..........It has a guest couch, a five year old child with too much energy and a hormonal pregnant 23 year old who hasnt had a drink in five months. It also comes complete with sandy beaches though.(and the 23 year old is willing and able to play the DD and babysitter)

Ash said...

Also, the loony bin, way better than jail, and better drugs.

Jill said...

You really need to get out!! But at least, it makes us, tt readers, something interesting to read!!

Leanne said...

Cabin fever indeed! Sounds like you need a case of calgon, eh?

Congrats on being selected as one of the featured Thirteeners for the week at the Hub. Thanks for sticking with it! Enjoy! :)

Becky said...

Oh good gosh you need to get out of the house! ;) Sorry for your woes, but it did make for a good T13! Have a better day!

Uisce said...

OMG I totally feel for you but I can't stop laughing! happy TT, mine's up!

RockDog said...

Wait...Josh and Mindy broke up? How did this happen? Damn it...they were so right for each other!

Trixie said...


Anastacia said...

Umm... interesting list! I have to say, I've thought about the jail thing too, just to get some peace & quiet, but then, I usually change it to a mental ward... it's probably quieter!

I'm a new Thursday 13er, and I'm having fun visiting as many blogs as I can! I wish I had more time! You can see my first list at:

Pippajo said...

CRSE! Congratulations on being a featured Thursday Thirteener! It couldn't happen to a better dork! I am so proud.

And I loved this list. Yup, I did. You never fail to deliver.

"...but I didn’t tell you because I don’t understand you and you don’t understand me."

Oh. My. God.

Did he turn 14 while I wasn't paying attention?

Queen of Wands said...

Number 1 is going on here on a day to day basis it seems. A nice hot, scented bath can work wonders. Hope that the snow goes away asap! ((()))

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

I came over from canada's Thursday Thirteen List of Beautiful Women. I had assumed to find another list of beautiful women but instead I get hand to hand poop transfer. This is a shock from which I may never recover!

Mert said...

Hand to hand poop transfer has 'MYSELF" intrigued. LOL, I just read Jenny's post/rant about grammar.

I have to say that i am enjoying your 13 , not because of your suffering, but because i love to hear about the real inpeoples lives.

It drives me nuts all these blogs out there that are all hearts and flowers 24/7. In reality, their rugs probably have ground up Doritos and cat barf just like ours. Only we admit to ours. :D Great 13, it makes me like you even more.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Oh god that picture is so cute. It makes me want one.

Come home Gill!
