And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
thank you ladies. i didn't fall asleep until after 5 this morning, but that was because of stupid storytelling and me being sensitive-> snowballing into something even more stupid.
maybe i should start exfoliating.
i came back to check the weather forecast for today (and MDA of course), and now i hear that my oldest has taken over cooking the food that i was cooking.

Glad kiddo is a bit better. Croup is def no fun - I almost died from it as a child - I got it often. I can remember trying to hide the cough - it's so distinctive - much like the name but with a hyphen in the middle. My daughter also got it often, but my son has been much healthier. I usually have the steroids in the house just in case and we've spent oh so many nights w/ a steamy shower or racing out to the hot tub (cold night air is also great for calming it BTW). I think primal/paleo has made a huge dif w/ this for my son. Get some rest and think "pleasant thoughts"!
you almost died? oh dear. i remember the first time my eldest had it; he was just shy of 3 years old and i hadn't really heard of croup. my husband was taking finals (cell phone off/evening class), my newborn daughter was sleeping, and my son was just hanging out as i took a shower. i remember how quiet and dazed he looked; i thought he was just sleepy and was relieved that i could get a shower in without anyone crying. but by the time i came out of the shower, he looked rather ill and by the time i got dressed, he could barely sit up on his own. he wasn't coughing, so i was really slow to catch on. i remember trying to figure out the logistics of carrying a newborn and a 3 year old across icy paths to the car, then drive them to the ER and hold them both across a sloped, icy parking lot. it was so cold out that i worried about leaving my baby girl in the car while getting my son; and i worried about my son panicking if he was left alone. when we got the ER and i knew we were out of the woods, i just started sobbing (and apologizing for it, lol).
can you get the steroids OTC? that would be nice to have in an emergency.
hey guys, i just wanted to drop in and say i'm still here, just mostly lurking in the shadows. there have been some serious posts lately, and i'm sorry i haven't been a part of the discussions. some of my trig homework was really stumping me and i've had a slew of other events go on which have prevented me from my daily MDA time. insomnia has been keeping me groggy (which sucks for reading comprehension and math "clicking"); this may have something to do with my precipitous drop in "greens" consumption. anyway, after a few hours of study, playing around with formulas (the professor's instruction made no sense to me), and practice, i think i've gotten over the hump. my first test is tomorrow, then an afternoon appointment. another busy week of babysitting and homework ahead; hopefully laziness on the weekend.
Glad things are getting sorted out (And double-glad you can figure out your trig by "playing around with formulas." That's pretty awesome!)
OK professor, here's a math quiz to keep you on your toes. If I have 10 strips of bacon, and Jon asks me for 45% of my bacon, how many strip of bacon will I eat?
Answer: 10 strips of bacon.
