More Popular Than Snuggling With My Sick Kids

The kids didn’t feel well at the beginning of the week so the fact that I got anything done earns me the medal of honor, valor and awesome-sauceness.

This picture makes me smile even though it exists because they were sick.

I appreciated the extra snuggling with my son, but I wasn't as into it at 2 a.m..

When I’m not taking care of sick kids and looking for extra sympathy, I’m writing and reading elsewhere…

My Other Hangouts (don’t tell my blog):

Favorite posts I didn’t read, I mean, write:

  • H&M, I Quit You: From The Woven Moments, my friend writes “… to tell me I’d be lucky to find something that fits, considering I wear the same size as the average American woman, well that’s just insulting.” (compelling)
  • Diabetics call Paula Deen a hypocrite for hiding disease while promoting sugar-heavy foods: From FoxNews, as you’ve probably heard, Paula Deen announced she has Type 2 Diabetes and in the same breath is the new spokesperson for a pharmaceutical company. Why Deen is (and has been) doing a disservice to others. (interesting)
  • Scientists create ‘time cloak’ that masks an entire event: From MSNBC, I freaked out when I first read that scientists could mask people in time, but it turns out it was for 15 picoseconds and not a person. Still kinda cool though. (nerdy)
  • Supreme Court Overturns ‘Right v. Wrong’: From The Onion, the Supreme Court narrowly overturns Right v. Wrong letting wrong prevail forever. (funny)
  • Peace Begins At Home: We all deserve healthy relationships. Let’s support the Building Healthy Futures fund through this fantastic new license Virginia plate. (important and even if you can’t buy the license plate, consider sharing the link with your friends, Facebook and Twitter if you live in Virginia.)

I hope your family is feeling well this weekend. Or at least keeps their sick germs away from us. {shakes fist menacingly}

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
