Completely and totally random

It is 11:09 pm and as I sit in the dark here nursing Addie I thought I would see if blogging from my phone is possible, which now I see it is. This morning, picking Addie up when she woke, I realized that she is allergic to avocado, her hair matted with dried vomit (yes, lovely, I know) and herself sort of dull and clingy, more clingy and I-so-need-my-mama-ish than usual with ongoing stomach upset all day. Addie has only vomited once before and also that time was following eating her avocado, which she loves. So she and I hung out all day, no naps and it is hot. Meanwhile I feel as though I haven't stopped perspiring all day and I am so very much behind on house things that I would like to do before my in laws arrive and our yard is a tangled overgrown field, which, living on the country would be just fine except for the fact that we have an over achieving lawn just across the way, with manicured diagonal lines carefully clipped. Our poor neighbors are stuck with the hillbillies with poultry and pig snorts and wild eyed children running. But we ate a happy (albeit tired) wild eyed bunch. Well, at least this redheaded mama is tired.
Blogger won't let me upload any of my highly entertaining photos from my phone, so guten nacht ( autocorrect wanted to make that gutenburg nacho). See you on the other side more rested.

"Gutenberg Nacho." Has a certain ring to it, don't you think? :)

Oh dear! LOL. The description of your yard versus your neighbors cracked me up...'member from Understood Betsy..."the dreaded Putney family"?! ;) Personally, as much as I'd LIKE a manicured lawn, I much rather do other things! Your wild-eye crew sounds right up our alley!

Sorry about your little one! :(Someone else was just blogging about their little on throwing up after avocado! Interesting. I didn't realize your stomach could be sensitive to that.

Hah! Isn't it always the case when we *need* to get a hundred things done before visitors arrive.... something gets in the way. I think it's to keep us humble ;)

Thanks for being so real! I'm so tired long before it is time for bed most days and often feel so alone in my role as a mother to my four children. God Bless!

Oh dear, don't eat the wild bunch. ;)
