Discourage Mints!

Life has gotten a little crazy at La Casa De Infidel. My two youngest mini-Infidels have struggled through phlegmy coughs, fever, and bouts of crying during the night for a whole week which in turn kept me awake too.

I don't have to consult etiquette guru, Emily Post to know that it's rude not to reciprocate the lovely comments left by all you bloggers whom I dearly love, but right now I just can't. I'm so tired and irritable, (but no cramping or bloating!) lately....... and I feel as though I'm subsisting on a diet of little EMO-faced "testy-mints." I'll see you all when I'm back in my sunshine-lollipops-and-rainbows-everything happy zone.

I'm sorry you're feeling crappy. That blows. But at least you have cool mints.

Does Papi now make everyone call him "The Honorable Papi?"

No Cool Story said...

It's ok Elastic. I know you love me best even if you can't come visit.
Don't you know I love you unconditionally?

No Cool Story said...

"The Honorable Papi".
Sounds bien, no?

Awww, I hope you feel better soon! I feel like I'm getting to know you a lot better, as I just got through your archives to January 2007. It's taking me longer than I thought, because sometimes I can't help but to click on the comments and they're hilarious too!

I think you're going to be the one to get my stomach to shrink with all the laughing that goes on. I'm also getting sleep-deprived.

Now get better, and if it helps get a hammer and smash some of those "discourage-mints" into non-existence! Then stir them into hot chocolate. Yum.

You need to take those little mints and melt them down like Jean Knee did... I bet you could make some cute Valentines with them to hang off your urinal...
I hope you and the kiddos are feeling better soon!

Them thar Discourage Mints look soooo verrry sad...yet strangely appetizing at the same time.

Makes me want to bite their little heads off.

Hilary said...

Poor you. I hope that you and your crew feel better soon.

Nancy Face said...

I'm sorry about the sickies at La Casa De Infidel, and the resulting lack of sleep on your part. That pretty much stinks. Or maybe it's just that I have gas.

Nancy Face said...

Congrats to Papi for graduating with honors! That is amazing, especially for a hard working husband and father!

The salary thing isn't so great...in fact, it's ridiculous...but things should be looking up before too long with your future CPA man!

Hang in there, sista! :)

BarnGoddess said...

Missed ya while Ive been ill-stricken.

Sketchy said...

Credits for CPA exam...that can't be too much longer, right? Hang in there, you'll make it.

Sorry for the sickees. Feel better.

Bee said...

[GUILT FREE PASS]
Take that pass and do not feel guilty for not visiting people.
I hope everyone knows what a busy, lovely, funny, taller than me, person you are.

Hope everyone gets better and nobody else succumbs to that vicious virus!

Jean Knee said...

Oh my dear infidel, take a break, relax, eat some candy-not those crappy mints, splurge for a chocolate bar.

I already Knew about Papi but I'll pretend I didn't;

That Papi rocks, smart and accountant cute. you go girl
one more semester, you can do it

There's something going around for sure. I'm sorry your kiddos have it. Brayden isn't sick but he pulled the whole waking up in the middle of the night thing. It's rough!

Congrats on the graduation. He's so close to the CPA...that's great! Matt still hates thinking about those yucky tests. Hang in there!

Maddy said...

Congrats to the new Grad!

As for your 'out of sorts' ness, do not fear Infidel, afterall you taught me [and probably quite a lot of other peeps] the principles of commenting, which is much more important.
Cheers

p.s. does that need translation?

I believe the Infidel rule is [approximately] you visit a blog, you read a blog and then you comment, to do otherwise constitutes 'lurking' which is not nice.

Is that right?
Cheers

Lisa said...

Congrats to Papi!

Hang in there. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!! Take care of your kiddies and take care of yourself. That's all that matters.

Geosomin said...

Sleep lots, eat lots of mints and relax...it'll all come together. Once your little minions feel better make them look after you...it's only fair. :)

I love the discouragemints BTW.

on.the.run said...

Stink and double stink. It is much harder to go one semester than it is to go 5 when you weren't expecting that extra one... sorry dude.

Millie said...

Here come da Hamma!!

You know, I will always love you and think you hung the moon, no matter what. Never fear.

Here's hoping Papi's last class passes by quickly and your babies will quit making your life hard for a few minutes. ;)

carronin said...

I love the Emo-mints. I need to get some of those to pass out to my pouty, whiny, Emo student who doesn't want my help because he is not a "retard".( his words not mine.)

Hope your babies get better soon.

Rhonda said...

I knew that college was overrated! ;)

Hope you feel like yourself again soon!

nikko said...

Yay for Papi!

Go, eat some chocolate and take a break. Hope you all feel better soon.

Lei said...

You are so well loved you get multiple comments from the same people. So I'm sure you'll be forgiven for taking a much needed break (and hopefully nap).

Lei said...

See, even I'm back for more!

Hoep everyone gets feeling better soon... and I'll pray for you every time I swallow. My kids have had the same crud and they gave it to me. I so hope yours don'tgive it to you. Although it is the weekend... perfect time to stay in bed.

Carrot Jello said...

Can't get rid of me, I've got you on speed dial!
Muwahahaha!

aubrey said...

i'm sorry your little ones are sick! i hope everyone is feeling better soon and you are able to get some sleep!

Lauren said...

At least you aren't bloated. Heaven knows I was last night after a hefty guacemole bacon burger.

Don't feel sad about not commenting, we all love you!!!

Palm Springs Savant said...

Oh I know what you mean- it seems that everyone is sick at the moment, coughing and hacking. blech.

Jean Knee said...

I miss the infidel more than anyone else does.

ELAAAASTIIIIC!

carronin said...

No way, I miss her more.

Come back, please hurry why don't you come back....

wynne said...

Hey, I'm the original elastic stalker. Back off.

Congrats, Papi, and the kids are better by now, right? I mean, I got here so late...
