I am so freaking excited to announce that Whoorl and Hair Thursday won Best Personal/Family Blog and Best Shopping/Beauty Blog at the Just Spotted Orange County Blog Awards Party last night! I was totally shocked…in fact, they had to call out ‘whoorl’ a few times before it registered in my post-partum, pea-sized brain. A huge THANKS to all of you who voted! You made my night! However, don’t worry; my short stint with a big head lasted all of 30 minutes. Shall I elaborate?
My fellow blogging compadres Tera and Christina invited me to grab a margarita after the awards party to which I responded with a bit of drool dribbling from the side of my mouth. (I guess that means yes.) On the way to the restaurant, I called D to tell him the news.
Me: I won! I WON! BOTH CATEGORIES! I WOONNNNNN! I’M KING OF THE WOOOORRRLLLLD. SO HAPPY! SO EXCITED!
D: That’s great! So great………um, Wito has diarrhea.
Me: Not so happy. Not so excited. Not so King of the World.
D: Sorry, sweets.
D assured me that everything was fine (p.s. – believe it or not, this is Wito’s very first gastrointestinal issue in his 4 years of living, so we are totally novices in the barf/diarrhea department) and to have a good time. So I enjoyed my dinner and Celebratory Margarita™ sans kids. It was quite relaxing, I must admit.
I returned home around 10pm to a quiet house and busted out a brief performance art-based “I’m a WINNER” jig around my living room before retiring to bed. This girl was ready to saw some happy logs! And that’s when Wita, my perfectly consistent 8:30pm to 6:30am angel of a sleeper, decided to wake up at 11pm. And 3:30am. And 6:30am.
I now sit here with a 4-year-old diarrhea patient who is begging me to drink milk (NOOOOOOOO) and a spaced-out 11-week-old who is 3 hours away from receiving her first round of immunizations.
WAY TO RAIN ON MY PARADE, KIDS.
(But you like me! You really like me! Thanks again, all!)
