Sometimes I don't think Thought Vomit should only occur on Thursday. Other days deserve Thought Vomit too, no?
So you might not know this about me but I think about some really random crap. (I know! Hard to believe, right!) Most of the time I spare you guys the details but I have come across the perfect platform to spew my mind vomit all across the Internet.
Thought Vomit Thursdays was brought to my attention by Josey over at
(Go ahead and click the link. She’s fun. The first link will bring you to her home page, the second will bring you to her first TVT post.)
Saturday morning we didn’t have to wake up early and Bud proved once again that he is the best little boy a mother can ask for! Him and Babe woke up at the same time and as I lay snuggled in my bed he took her downstairs and made her breakfast! Yes, he got a bowl, and a spoon, and the cereal, poured the cereal in the bowl, got the milk and poured the milk in the bowl (WITHOUT SPILLING) and served it to her in front of the heater (just as I do every morning). (Yes, my kids eat their breakfast on the kitchen floor so they can be in front of the toe kick heater. It’s a fight I don’t find important enough to have.) I did have to get up
kicking and screaming shortly after but those few extra minutes were pure heaven!! This is why I’m done having kids. They are getting old enough to do things like this for themselves and it’s just too good to make me want to start all over again.
We went out for dinner with friends and ate at Uno Chicago Grill. (They have a gluten free menu so it was an easy choice.) Seriously, they served me the best GF pizza I’ve ever eaten! GF pizza leaves a lot to be desired but this one was so good I almost ate the whole thing (it’s a lot for one person). Thankfully I was able to stop and save a few pieces for lunch today! YUM!
Our friend was driving us back from dinner (she has a Tahoe so we all fit in one car – so much more fun!) and about ½ way home (a 40 minute trip) Bud made a weird sound from the back seat. I turned and he was covered in vomit. Awesome! We (living were we do) were in the middle of nowhere so thankfully we had some napkins in the car and I cleaned up best I could then we hightailed it to a gas station to finish the job. I was just going to wipe it all off the best I could until we got home but it wasn’t working out so I just took his pants off of him and wrapped him in my vest to get him back in the car. (He was very nervous people would see his underwear.) (I do wish I had my camera trained on his friend A when he got back in the car. A was VERY weirded out by a Bud in his underwear sitting in his car!) Afterwards Bud was completely ok. He has never gotten car sick and doesn’t tend to throw up (the only other time I can remember was the time I spun him too much on our swing and he threw up red kool-aid and macaroni on my beige carpet. That was a lot of fun.) so I’m not sure what that was all about but I’m just glad he was ok!
As I thought about what I was going to write for this Thought Vomit I couldn’t help but sing (to the tune of Lou Bega’s Mambo #5) “A little bit of Thought Vomit in my life. A little bit of real vomit in my life. A little bit too much vomit in my life.”
So this morning I woke up to the sun shining and the birds chirping. It was great. Until I realized it was 7:30…the same time I’m supposed to be in my car on the way to work! Yeah, I forgot to set my alarm and if it wasn’t for one of the kids coughing in their sleep and me hearing it I would have been even later! I did manage to get myself ready and out the door in a ½ hour (thanks to husband getting Bud dressed and driven to school – of course he missed the bus too!). It was some morning!
So I don’t know if you guys remember but a few months ago (October to be exact) I shared the news that my husband had finally gotten a new job! Well, time to dust off that wording again! My husband got ANOTHER new job! It was a little unexpected but the pay is almost double what he’s making now and the hours are so much better (6am-2:30pm instead of various shifts ending sometimes at 10pm). I can’t even explain how much better this is! We are so grateful he got the 1st new job because he had to get out of where he was but it was a pretty big pay cut and we knew the hours wouldn’t be the best but it was just absolutely necessary to get him out of his old job. So this newest job (which he applied for the same time as the 1st new job) finally got their act together and hired him! This job has the trifecta of perks, good hours, great pay, and it’s not a desk job (something that was very difficult for him to adjust to with the 1st new job). He’ll be working with people he already knows and gets along with and they are all hunters and they even take off during hunting season (like they close up shop for a week) so they can all hunt. (He nearly died when he heard that one!)
I’ll take a little vomit mixed in with good news like this any day!!
Happy Monday Peeps!
(Speaking of Peeps…I could go for some marshmallow goodness! I love Easter candy!)
