Summer Fun

Wito and I are both experiencing unbelievably hellish summer colds on this lovely Wednesday. How did this happen? I was minding my own business, rocking the Wii Fit Super Hula at 1pm yesterday, when BAM! Snot explosion! Head cold from hell!


1. Grocery shopping and errands this morning while babysitter is here.

2. The never-ending Hair Thursday tasks including, but not limited to: (SUB-LIST ALERT.)

  • Complete post for tomorrow.
  • Organize my update post. (3 ladies!)
  • Find some sort of WordPress plugin that will organize my Stylists section. (Halp! Someone!)
  • Write post for upcoming AWESOME contest on Friday.
  • Edit several HT “how-to” videos that I filmed at my hair stylist’s salon on Monday.

3. Finish ParentDish Image of the Day posts for the remaining week.

4. Brainstorm ideas for my new writing job that starts July 7th. (It’s about CLOTHES and MAKEUP and LOOKING FABULOUS! Hell to the yes.)

5. Return 49 million emails.

6. Take care of my poor little boy.


1. Cancel babysitter due to horrid germs.

2. Take care of my poor little boy.

3. Try not to die.

4. Cry.

    Summer colds suck. And blow.

    I’m dying to email you about your new writing gig, but will spare your inbox one more email.

    Get better!

    The bright side? At least you’ll be better three weeks from now ;)

    Dear Whoorl, please get better SOON. I can’t wait to see the HT videos. I LOVED the video on straightening your hair. I need more HT help.

    I’ll be waiting.

    Feel better and get one of those services that delivers groceries. Isn’t that one of the perks of living in your part of the world? When you’re sick, the last thing you need to be doing is grocery shopping.

    First, yes. Congrats on the new writing gig! Second, could it be allergies? Sometimes allergies can hit you out of the blue like that. Whatever it may be, I hope the both of you get well soon!

    I have a nasty winter cold, and in three days I have done nothing but produce mucus and block up all my pores.

    My black market tissue-box and nasal spray dealer knows me by name. (And while we’re on nasal spray: EW.)

    Super Hula Hoop.
    There are no words.
    Be sure to check my abs in three weeks, I’m sure something will show up if my hips don’t fall out.
