Follow Friday – Sarah FAILIN’ Edition

19 Nov

I’m a bit hung over from Yo Gabba Gabba. It was so incredibly fun but it involved a lot of walking while carrying a diaper bag with all of our worldly goods plus my 24-pound toddler. My hips and legs are killing me in a way that they haven’t since I was pregnant. We got back very late and I was looking forward to sleeping in, at least just a little, figuring a late night plus all the excitement would mean a full night’s sleep. Wrong! Isobel was up from 1:00 a.m. to about 3:30 a.m. She was fussing and unhappy and, from what I could tell, in teething pain from getting one of her last molars. She also has a very runny noise. I’ m so grateful I took a furlough day today because I plan to spend the day in a semi-conscious stupor.

That said we really had a fantastic time and once I’m rested I’m going to write a recap. Hint: there may have been some high-fiving.

As far as twitter memes this week, my favorite was definitely #SarahPalinBabyNames. I hate her with a consuming passion and I hope she’s hunted down by polar bears that have been rendered homeless by her destructive environmental ways. Actually, I really hope those bears shoot her from a plane. For a reality TV show.

Stupid Sarah Failin’.

    Oh I LOVE the tweet of the week. I have a fear that Athena is going to bust out while I’m in the shower so I turn the house alarm on to keep her butt in check. She knows how loud and scary that s.o.b. is.

    My sole purpose for existing is to eventually win TofW at Little Big. TRUFAX.
