Monday Morning With The Sick Kid

It’s time for another Monday Morning Meme, which is brought to you by Karen @ Write From Karen. This week’s questions are:

1. What’s your mood today? Why do you feel this way? Would you consider yourself to be a moody person overall? When has your “moodiness” gotten you into trouble? Tell us about that incident. Today I’m mostly just siiiiick. In fact, pretty much the whole family is. We woke up yesterday with this lingering suck just sucky enough to make us whine about it, but controlled enough that we kept on trucking, getting our errands done. Do you know how hard it is to pick out fabric for a quilt when you’d rather be hiding under the already made covers? Oh well. This morning I’m doing laundry and being sick. I don’t really have time for an actual mood, I’m just trying to keep it together, you know? I am definitely prone to moody – I have ups and downs and they are usually well defined. I don’t know of any story of my moodiness getting me into trouble but maybe I’m just too sick to think about it?

2. How do you feel about the dentist? On a scale of 1 (terrified) to 10 (he’s like a brother to you). And, if it’s a low number … is there a reason behind your fear / loathing? Tell us a dentist story (we all have them!) The dentist is pretty much a 3 in my book – to be avoided at all cost. I’m not afraid of him, just untrusting and wary. I know I’ll have to get over that pretty soon. But when you combine a lack of dental insurance with a sketchy at best dental history, I think it’s understandable. I’ve had a lot of cavities, a few too many root canals, and I’ve even had to have a tooth pulled because of a lack of communication between the dentist and my father (when I was too young to be the person told) about needing a permanent filling added at a later date. Oh and the root canal where the doctor drilled too deep. That was fun. I probably have all my details mixed up but seriously, I just don’t like them. My last dentist was completely unaware of how to properly use Novocaine and to add to that, he was also the opposite of gentle and kind of a jerk – even the dental hygienists didn’t like him and complained about him behind his back. There is a supposedly really good children’s dentist in the next town (Dr. Tony – read about him here) over and I’m planning to take my son there when the time comes (and I think it’s coming soon) because I’ve heard rave reviews.

3. If you could interview anyone, who would you interview, and what would the first question be? I’d interview John Mayer and my first question would be, “Don’t you read my blog?” My next question would be, “Why haven’t you called Natalie Portman yet?” or “Are you really dating Jennifer Aniston again, because I’m skeptical of the media at this point.”

4. What did you do over the weekend? Let’s see, we had “game night” if you can call it that, and ate lots of yummy pizza, artichoke dip, pumpkin bread & cookies. I bought some fabric and a cutting board, etc. so I can learn to quilt – that should be fun. I hope. I’m not the world’s craftiest person but I’m gonna try! We also bought my son Big Kid Underpants because I’m planning to start POTTY TRAINING this week. More on that later.

    Your first question to John Mayer is hilarious, but I am sure he will say yes. I’m sure game night was fun, but it also sounds quite delicious! Hope you get to feeling better soon.

    @ Amanda : Well I’ve used a sewing machine before and done a few crafts, I’ll give it a shot, I can always make something else if I get bored. I made a tiny pillow this weekend, the sewing part was fun, the hand stitching though was tedious.

    Good Luck potty training.

    I wouldn’t actually recommend quilting as your first foray into crafting, unless you’re really really passionate about it. What about pillows? or kitchen towels? or something else really simple that will quickly give you a sense of satisfaction when you finish?
