I Have Decided to Live

But it was close at times. I think that is the only time Justin and I have ever been that sick at the same time--definitely since we became parents. (I can't remember much before the kids. I swear pregnancy depleted the brain cells I used to use for memory.) My parents helped on Saturday, but they are pastors and so have to work on Sunday. And I didn't really feel right about asking friends, "Could you come over and pick up our potentially disease-carrying children so we can recuperate? We'll do the same for you in a week!"

Enough about that. Here's a picture of me holding a mask of myself which was drawn by Miss Pink. The photo is taken by Miss Pink, which I would say explains the darkness and blurriness, but in fact it is not much different from many pictures I take.

When I asked why my tongue is sticking out in the picture, Miss P told me it was because I was about to eat some chocolate.

It's so helpful to know what I look like when I get a chocolate craving. I bet I lose weight every time I look at this.

That kid knows her mama. For Mother's Day, her teacher interviewed the kids about their moms and this is what she said about me.

Favorite color: Green (correct!)
Favorite Food: Chocolate (no comment)
Favorite Flower: Any flower
Favorite store: Wal-Mart and Target (because we are always at one of those two)
Favorite Book: Any Grown-Up Book (she knows I read a lot of 'em)
"I love my mom because she's sweet."

I'll tell you who's sweet, and she's five years old and wears pink glasses.

Finally, I did go ahead and get a twitter page. I am hlinefracture, if you want to look me up. I may already be following YOU! Muahahaha!

Must go shower. See you later, alligators.


  1. YAY! You came into the Twitter light! Thanks for following me!

  2. Apparently I'm going to need a twitter tutorial.
    The mask is cute, and so lifelike.

  3. I'm glad you are feeling better. I hope everyone is back on their feet soon! I love the picture of you getting ready to eat some chocolate! Your daughter seems really sweet and observant!!

  4. I'm glad you're back on the side of the living!

    Ms Pink is MUCH too cute... seriously!!

  5. Oh Honey I hope you are feeling better...so sorry that you've been sick. I know how it feels to not be able to do ANYTHING you want to do! That child of yours has you down pat, doesn't she? Love the picture she did...do I see an artist in your future, lol?

  6. I am glad you did not die. I always feel BETRAYED when my husband gets sick at the same time, like WHO WILL LOOK AFTER THE CHILDREN NOW?

  7. And I am following YOU too!! Twitter, baby!!

  8. You and your sassy tongue DO NOT need to worry about chocolate consumption. You're tiny, dude!

  9. I love the evil laugh at the end!

    And, your Miss Pink is so sweet... make my teeth hurt... okay, so its the best line I ever got from you...I use it all the time.
