I can't wait for my (sick) little vampire to wake up so I can dress him in his costume and hang out with him on one of my favorite nights of the year!

Sunday

October 30, 2011

And today we got to be acquainted with the local pediatric urgent-care clinic.

Saturday

October 29, 2011

Today's trip to the emergency room for my out-of-control asthma was later offset by the cuteness of my son at the pumpkin patch, but now our pumpkin is running a high fever.

Friday

October 28, 2011

I want to close my eyes for, like, several days.

Thursday

October 27, 2011

The first cool snap of the season + World Series game on TV tonight = happiness.

Wednesday

Tuesday

October 25, 2011

I'm hoping today's blood work leads to tomorrow's answers.

Monday

October 24, 2011

Kick me when I'm down, everybody--come on, it's great fun!

Sunday

October 23, 2011

I didn't do all I wanted to do this weekend, and I am not prepared for the coming week; the last thing I need is a repeat of the horribleness that was last week.

Saturday

October 22, 2011

I guess I'll be getting my thyroid checked; this hair loss is just alarming at this point.

Friday

October 21, 2011

A week awful enough for the record books is coming to an end; please let next week be gentler to me.

Thursday

October 20, 2011

Excited for game 2 of the World Series--go, Rangers!

Wednesday

October 19, 2011

This week is shaping up to be just fabulous; today's big event was a (non-injury) car accident.

Tuesday

October 18, 2011

The first truly cool day of the season always blows in with it a hint of nostalgia.

Monday

October 17, 2011

Happiness is where you find it; I've turned everything in the house upside down and am running out of places to look for it.

Saturday

October 15, 2011

I got a huge kick out of watching my son and the other kids at his buddy's birthday party today--happy toddlers are such a joy.

Friday

October 14, 2011

The little one and I enjoyed a relaxing stroll around our neighborhood on this gorgeous, cloudless autumn day.

Thursday

October 13, 2011

The ALCS is really causing a backlog on my DVR.

Tuesday

October 11, 2011

Another month begins, and where my contentedness used to be, a chasm widens.

Monday

October 10, 2011

Between the OCD, raw hands, and anxiety attacks, it's no wonder my hair is still falling out.

Saturday

October 8, 2011

All of this waiting and wondering is going to kill me eventually.

Friday

October 7, 2011

I am concerned about the things I'd do for a Xanax right now...Well, not really...Maybe.

Wednesday

October 5, 2011

And I didn't meet my neighbors during National Night Out after all; my social anxiety got the better of me.

Tuesday

October 4, 2011

National Night Out = me committing a bunch of social faux pas in front of all my neighbors.

Monday

October 3, 2011

If we combine every person in this house, we make one able-bodied person.

Sunday

October 2, 2011

I had a dream last night that I was going to be executed via hanging for a trivial nonviolent crime, and no one--not even the crappiest of lawyers in town--would associate himself or herself with me to try to save me; I woke up to a wet pillow.

Saturday

October 1, 2011

October: the month during which I play Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video (and the documentary of the making of said video) pretty much on repeat.
