It's RANDOM THOUGHT TUESDAY with Keely at theunmom.com

It's my favorite day........except that I am so tired, I can hardly see straight!

*I don’t know why, but we’re all exhausted around here.
We’re all trying to adjust to the back to school schedule of getting up at 5ish. It’s really not working so well. And now….Garrett is sick!
He has this obnoxious dry cough and a headache. I think he is achy too. I don’t know if he has a fever. Because I didn't "feel his forehead." That's how we take our temperatures around here.
Hey! Maybe he has Swine Flu.
*Swine Flu – I’m not calling it the H1N1 flu.
That’s a stupid name! I don’t care if the pork industry has asked us not to call it that. They aren’t the boss of me! Since when does the pork industry rule the world? I know, I know. They are afraid that we’ll all freak out and stop buying pork products. I promise! The Swine Flu isn’t going to keep me from eating bacon every day!
*But there is one thing that I will not eat for awhile.
You will NOT believe this.
What have I talked about and talked about the whole summer?
Well, I went on a little excursion and OD’ed. (I’ll tell you more about the excursion on Friday).
But get ready – I don’t want to SEE another CUPCAKE for awhile. Just saying the word…..C.U.P.C.A.K.E makes me feel sick to my stomach. Can you believe I feel that way? I must have the sugar flu!
*Is it bad that we’re only 6 days into school and I am SICK of making lunches? Maybe I have the lunch flu?
*Is it bad that we’re only 6 days into school and I am SICK of school? Maybe I have a rare autumnal form of Spring Fever.
And you know what? I'm so tired that I'm sick of Random! I can't even be random!
Go get your random on!

I hear ya on the making lunches. Second day of school here and I did a little dance when it was Chicken burgers on the menu because they actually like those and that meant, no making lunches for me! Hope Garrett is feeling better soon!

I have to make my hubs lunch everyday and it's never as simple as leftovers because he eats in his truck. I am starting to hate packing lunches and I have years to go until it's school lunches! I'm in trouble!

Yeah the told us to call it "Novel H1N1" What a joke! I will call it swine flu forever. In 50 years no one is going to even remember what h1n1 was, except for the nerds with no friends! And maybe the pork industry.

I think it's the 'sick and tired' flu. You need to take a few lazy days and tell them 'mun's out to lunch' :-)

14 days into school and the newness has worn off. I wish my daughter would stand in line for lunch - she's such a whiner.

Hope everyone gets over their flus soon. That sugar one just can't last long. Gosh, kill me if I ever get that one.

Wow, you must have really O'D on cupcakes not to like it anymore! And I'm like you, I absolutely do not like making lunches. Thankfully, I only have to make lunch twice a day because my son likes the items on the menu the other 3 days!

Hope your schedule starts to settle down.

Haha! My kiddos seem to be getting sick too. Hopefully Garrett gets to feeling better soon!
I agree... calling it H1N1 is simply stupid. LOL!

Mine start next week and it's going to be so hard for them to adjust since they are still going to bed at 4 in the morning!! I'm usually up no later than 8 so getting up at 6 won't be too hard for me, but they are going to be hurting.

I hope Garret feels better soon! I also take temps by feeling foreheads cuz the kids always loose the thermometer and I refuse to buy a new one every 2 months anymore!!

It will forever be the Swine Flu to me, no matter how much the pork industry and my youngest yell at me when I say it.

I hope you're feeling better from your OD! Not wanting cupcakes? Has the world officially ended and no one bothered to me a memo??

Have a fantabulous day!
