My Purple Wings Have Spots and Rainbow Colors

I'm recovering, thanks to all who sent me well wishes. I recouped with some down time which was in order. Mr. Coffee is very sweet when I am sick, bringing me take-out, flowers, lattes, extra soft mentholy and lotiony tissue. Yes, mentholy is a word...and even drugs like Nyquil, nectar of the drippy-nosed and bronchial congested. That stuff is a saving grace......and sweet holy Alice the Maid, I took some yesterday morning and ended up attacking my house like the FlyLady on crack...sans the purple wings.

You, too can shine your sink and eliminate hot spots in under 4.3 seconds!!

All seriousness aside, it's a deep seated, inherent need to organize and clean. I'm a Sep baby and often meet people with the same birth month with the same tendencies and characteristics. I don't do the whole astrology bit because I believe that the Maker of the stars holds my future, but enough about Simon and the American Idol judges.

On occasion, I meet people and they ask me what my sign is. I don't care, really, but I do believe there is an element of scientific truth in the whole 'what's your sign' aside from being a very bad pickup line. I'm thinking if a pregnant mother is stressed, it can stress the baby, right? This is proven science. Babies get their vibes from mom, so wouldn't it be realistic to know that women feel differently at each turn of the season? Traditionally, people have to be organized around Christmas time and do spring cleaning in April and March. They are happy spring is sprung, and generally most people are happy to see the flowers and sunshine. My theory is that this is why Sep babies like me are organized, easily make friends, logical and type A people persons. This is simply a theory but I think it is logical, but naturally I would think that. It would be just like me.


In other news, I've trashed yet another template from blogger. You can see the carnage here at Flip Flop Momma's blog. I love to design** and love the way this turned out. (**read: hunt and peck through HTML and CSS code with delusions of graphic design grandeur. I taught myself, thankyouverymuch.)

I knew you were sick.

I never get sick because i avoid sick people, drink lots of water and orange juice and I know how to write prescriptions.

Glad you're feeling better and the design you made at Flip Flop Momma's is awesome! You really should paid big bucks to do that stuff!

Amen on "Maker of the stars." My mom always made me chuckle when I was pregnant and told her about the baby and when it was due. "Oh, it'll be a Sagittarius!" Like, wow, man.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I think I caught your cold

I'm not sure I believe in that stuff either, but I do think it has some merit. Maybe like a knot merit badge or first aid or something.

I love to clean and organize (for which I get openly mocked at work, where many people are Type-A, so I don't know where the mockery is coming from). I'm a march baby. So I'm not sure what that means.

I'm a May baby, which means...hopefully nothing bad because my eldest daughter was also born in May. :)
