I am sick as a dog. (Where did that phrase come from? Do dogs even get sick?) Anyway, I am not sure which one of my three kids brought home this illness but it sucks. Yesterday afternoon I felt so terrible I put some TV on for my kids and went upstairs to take a nap. I have never done this before. I told them not to answer the door or the phone and to come get me if anything caught on fire. After about 10 minutes, Lolly came upstairs with a jar of spaghetti sauce and asked me if it was salsa. I said no, and described what the salsa jar looked like. I knew in my head that this did not bode well for my couches or living room rug, but I didn't care. Thank heavens Mr. Mint came home a little early or I don't think my kids would have got dinner. Or else I would have just handed them some dried pasta and a jar of spaghetti sauce.
This morning I could barely get the girls ready for school. After I fixed their breakfast they got out some kind of craft and proceeded to spill glitter all over the couch and spread beads and tiny pieces of string all over the floor. Again, I didn't care. When it was time to leave for school I asked them to clean up and get dressed. In my head I was screaming, "it's not f***ing craft time, it's time to get ready for school!!!!!" I may have said this out loud. I'm not really sure.
At any rate, Gloppy is at my in-law's, the girls made it to school and I am alone until 2:45pm. But here I am typing away when all I want to do is take some NyQuil and go curl up in my bed. See how much I love you dear readers?

Sleepovers. Lolly and Frostine who just turned six have their very first sleep over party tonight. I am not sure how I feel about this. Part of me thinks they are way too young and the other part of me thinks, "hooray! Mr. Mint and I get the night off since Gloppy can stay at my in-law's!! Bring on the booze!!" Too bad I fear I won't be able to get my @ss off the couch in order to enjoy our night alone.
The girls are super excited about the sleepover and I think it will go just fine. It's not like they have never spent the night away from us. They have spent several nights at my in-law's and my sister's house. My beloved sister-in-law even took them to Disneyland without us when they were only 4 years old and it turned out great.
Besides, we know the family very well and they don't live too far from us. I think I am just writing all this trying to convince myself that they are old enough for a sleepover party. Now I just need to go buy them some new sleeping bags since theirs have Disney princesses on them and they informed me this morning that it's not cool to have a princess sleeping bag in first grade. Who am I to argue?

Facebook. I have resisted joining Facebook for a while now. I enjoy making fun of my husband and his 100+ "friends" they way he enjoys making fun of my blog and my "imaginary friends." But then I got a message from a friend from college and I couldn't say no to her. So I joined Facebook. It's a little strange and I only have 8 friends so far. That's all I have to say about that right now. I'll keep you updated on my friend count.

Link! My friend Marinka linked me in her post yesterday. I have never met Marinka in real like, but her blog is one of my favorites. I hope she doesn't mind that I called her my friend even though we've never met. Maybe I should call her my friendrinka.
Anyway, if you don't already read her, you should because she is wickedly funny and every time she leaves a comment here I have to make sure I am not drinking anything that would hurt if it came streaming out of my nose. I love Marinka my friendrinka. Go read her lastest post and leave her a question.
That's all I got for now. I am going to make some tea and do my BFL picks now. Wish me luck.
p.s. I am not going to proofread this, so please accept my apology for the many typos I am sure you will find.
