I'm not posting today

I feel like crap, so I'll spare you the "I thought I was getting better but today my throat feels like someone scraped sandpaper across it and right now my kid has decided she wants to watch a Barney DVD (Yeah, thanks, Mom and Dad, I knew I should have gotten rid of that thing before she knew who that creature was!) and I'll feel like scratching my eyes out before the thing gets started" schpiel.

Instead I'll tell you about some posts I've enjoyed and are worth checking out. I figure if I can use the chuckle, or the thought provoking discussions, maybe you can, too?

at The Mother Load talks about How to Find Your Inner Jew this time of year. She's even added a bit of a contest to the post, so it could be worth your while to stop by. I mean, after all, don't you want to know more about the Chosen Ones and the holidays we celebrate?

Lisa over at Three Bears Farm posted an incredible recap of her NYC Marathon experience here. She is an inspiration and I am in awe of her. And so proud! And if you're interested in the interview she had with me back in August to talk All Things NYC, check it out, as well.

My friend
That One Mom talks about how The McRib Saved her life ... and while it's kind of gross to me, it's a sweet life-saving sandwich, apparently!

And for a great chuckle, check out this series of posts over at
Single Mom in the South. They're categorized as A Southern Series, and they're bound to make you smile.

So, enjoy! And tell my peeps I sentcha if you're in the mood to actually say hi!


  1. Thanks for the shout out. Sorry you feel so crummy. I'm sure Barney isn't helping you any. *hugs*

  2. Yikes! I hope you're feeling better soon!

  3. Oh no I hope you feel better soon! It was nice chatting with you on twitter yesterday ;)

  4. Thank you!

    This sounds like an awful cold. :-( Hope you feel better soon! It's so hard to parent full time when you're sick and miserable and just want to sleep. Hang in there!

  5. So I saw this in my blogroll and was all set to come over and be snarky, pointing out that you did in fact post, but then I saw you weren't feeling well, so I thought I'd be nice AND THEN, I scrolled down and you gave me a shout out, so I'm glad I wasn't snarky *grins*

  6. Andrea,

    Thank you for all the shoutouts, and I hope you're on the mend. Do you have some chicken soup?

    On another note, just the mere idea of a McRib makes me want to throw up in my mouth a bit. So I might have to check that out just b/c my curiosity is piqued....hmmmm...


  7. I love That One Mom. And even if I think the McRib is gross Im glad she likes them!
