Today, Thus Far...

Please bear with me.
It is not even 11 am on the east coast and already I've endured:

*A throbbing headache that laughs in the face of Excedrin Migraine.

*My brand new pair of fuzzy slipper/socks being thrown into the potty by my 3 year old...a potty full of shadoobie, no less. (Long story...don't ask.) Ew.

*News that one of my cousins has just been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. (Praying for Brian, earnestly.)

*A bite on the thigh from Lewis. I love that cat, but he's thisclose to becoming a fur muff.

*News that my beloved Herschel Walker will be on the next installment of Celebrity Apprentice. It made my head pound even harder to think of The Donald being mean to my man. I don't think I'll be able to watch. Gulp.


Oh, my head. Literally.

Again, please bear with me. I will pick a winner of the autographed copy of Kristin Cashore's Graceling later on today. Go back and comment again if you want--it will only increase your chances.

Why does this particular Friday feel like a Monday? Yeesh...

Sounds like your week is ending like it started. I have had the week from hell, too. But at least my slippers are clean. Well...if I had any slippers :-)

And I will totally go and comment again. I wanna win a prize!

((Brian))

and I just told a co-worker that today felt more Monday than Friday.

Cancer sucks. I'm sorry.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

Just thinking... could the cat be used to replace the fuzzy slippers?

Julie said...

i am so sorry for the headache, the slippers, and most of all Brian. Cancer sucks... praying for you right now

Shelley said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Brian. I will say a prayer for him.
I hope you will get rid of that nasty headache soon and well, for the socks, that's just gross.

I still want the book, so here's my comment.

Feel better soon.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

Man that stinks! What a rough morning!

Poor Brian, Cancer really sucks!

Your fuzzy socks in the toilet of shadoobie made me giggle! LOL

Kori said...

Seriously Cancer Sucks!

I love you and I hope the weekend is so much more better than today has been for you.

Shannon said...

I am sorry to hear about your cousin... will be adding him to my prayers.

What are you going to do with that little imp of yours? Oh, man...


Hope your day is getting better :)

Brandy said...

I'm scared by HTL's comment. Cause where would you put your foot? Yeah there.

Prayers for your cousin. And for your headache to go away. And for the cat cause it sounds like he'll need them.

Kristina P. said...

Lula, I'm sorry to hear about all this! I hope things start looking up!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Prayers, for everyone involved in your post. And the slippers too.

If we're pretending it's Monday, can't we all just pretend it's 5:00 as well, and add a little Kahlua to the coffee?

Probably wouldn't help the headache though.

Thinking of you and Brian.

CaraBee said...

Oh girl, that sounds like a whole lot of nothing good. Here's hoping the Excedrin has kicked in, that the slippers are machine washable and The Donald leaves poor Herschel alone.

Ashley said...

If Excedrin Migraine can't fix it, it must be bad. That stuff is good.

Hope your day gets a little better :)

Melissa said...

Cancer is such a boil on the butt of humanity. Praying for Brian.

Shadoobie. I love that word. It's so much better than poop. I hate that word. I hate saying it. I hate typing it.

I hope your day gets better.

Denise said...

{{{{{{{{{{Lula}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

I think you need some TLC today. Sending some your way.

XOXOXOXO

Tony C said...

I'm really sorry to hear about your cousin Brian. How old is he? Family?

My thoughts and prayers are with Brian. I'm a cancer survivor and know first hand the devasting effect cancer has in people's lives.

Please encourage him that God has purpose in all that He does in our lives.

Sissy said...

I am sorry your head has desided to pound and be mean to you. It makes everything worse. It does, I know.

Kristin said...

My day is craptastic too. My head is just starting to hurt. Off to clean crap.

Amy said...

You poor little angel! I'm so sorry.
I'm terribly sorry about your Brian. That makes me so sad. I will pray for him too. xo

ParentingPink said...

Augh, socks in the potty with pooh. Sounds familiar.

I will keep your cousin in my thoughts and prayers.

Take lots of Excedrin and feel better!

Heather said...

Jeez, I am so glad you posted 'cause I was worried about you!

Good luck on the headache; you do know a big weather system is on the way, and being a human barometer takes a toll on a girl...

Best of luck with the potty! The training and the cleaning. Yuck.

sassy stephanie said...

Surely this is a little hump before a great weekend, no? Keep your chin up!

Kimberly said...

I have studied my headaches in great detail :)

They can all be traced back to sinus aka allergies.

I take an Anaprox (the prescription version of Aleve ie. Naproxin Sodium)

With an Allegra-D chaser.

I'm a new person with a 20 minute nap after that.

Seriously, I could even change my name.

Linda said...

In the course of a year there's bound to be a few days like yours. On the up side, you're getting it out of the way early in the year! Can you imagine how glorious things are going to be after today?

Sorry about your cousin though, that's just terrible news. I'll add him to my prayers!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

My Mamma said there'd be days like this....

Sorry it just jumped into my head.

I will add Brian to my list. My cancer list is very long right now. Cancer SUCKS!

I will pray for your head too....

Kim said...

At least it wasn't your fuzzy Georgia socks! Give my baby a kiss and I hope your head gets better! Love you!

Nicole said...

Sounds like you could use the weekend to relax! Feel better.

Amy said...

I was wondering what happened to you when my early morning read wasn't there from you.

I hope things get better for you and your weekend is wonderful :)

Caroline said...

I'm so sorry. I almost called you this morning, but I got busy and forgot. Sounds like it wouldn't have been a good morning anyway. Ours got off to a rocky start with me comingthisclose to being a mean and nasty abusive mother. Thisclose.

Sorry about your socks. Yuck. And I'm even more sorry to hear about your cousin, that's terrible. I'll be praying. Sounds like you might need a trip to Savannah with me and Melissa. Whaddya think?

heathersister said...

You are pushing that girl too hard just 'cause you want to go to Disney and she is gonna make you pay mama. Give her a big hug from me.

She is just like you girl!

xoxo

Mama Kat said...

Would you tremble
if I touched your lips?
Would you laugh?
Oh please tell me this.
Now would you die
for the one you loved?
Hold me in your arms, tonight.

I can be your hero, baby.
I can kiss away the pain.
I will stand by you forever.
You can take my breath away.

Oh, I just want to hold you.
I just want to hold you.
Am I in too deep?
Have I lost my mind?
I don't care...
You're here tonight.

Rhea said...

Oh, no, not the slippers!!

Your poor cousin. :o( That's just not cool at all.

And about the headache...I demand that it leaves you. NOW.

Becky said...

"Shadoobie"...that's a new one...and I have heard it called MANY things!

Please don't hurt Lewis...do it for Becky, man. We have a dead cat sitting in a box in our garage right now, 'cause I have convinced my husband it is our lost "pumpkin" and needs a proper buriel...not lying. kinda wish I was.

Anyways...hope things get better:)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh gosh, Lula. So sorry to hear about your cousin. Prayers to his whole family!!!!!!!!

I do hope the rest of your day got better. It was my last day at a terrible job so in a way it was a great day but I am sure there will be headaches down the road in my search. It's a mess out there! Have a great weekend and big hugs to you!

Oh, shadoobie? Hah. Never heard that term.

Jen said...

Oh I hope that you feel better soon. hugs and kisses.

Mrs. S said...

I am hoping that by now, your day has turned around and you are doing well!! Sending some love your way!!

Swirl Girl said...

{hugs for your cousin-that just sucks}

your headache today sort of pales in comparison, huh??

scargosun said...

I TOTALLY agree with the whole Friday feeling like a Monday thing. I was thinking it all day.

TheRightWife said...

Lula, I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin. I'll keep him in my thoughts.

And - my - you have been very busy. I think I have a sympathy headache, and my headache is managing to survive the vicodin I'm taking (one of the perks of getting a c-section - the fabulous drugs).

Hope your head feels better soon!

Britt said...

Well heavens honey! I hope your Monday feels like a Friday next week .. or would that just be disappointing?

And praying for your cousin .. and your cat .. and your baby girl =-)

John Deere Mom said...

Jeesh..that does suck! Hope your Satuday is starting off better.

Veggie Mom said...

I'm partial to Herschel Walker, too! Don't worry about him and The Donald. He'll kick the living Shadoobie out of him!

Vicki said...

I hate to hear about your cousin. Cancer does suck. Reading is good for the soul though, I need to do more of it, and not on the computer.
