Both kids are down with the flu bug since Thursday. Maybe you caught one of my tweets like this ....
yes. worst decision ever. We always get the flu shot, why did we skip it this year?! Any claims that the flu shot is ineffective or it gives you the flu were proven wrong by my two boys. Never again will we face the flu season without flu shots.
Other A-Typical happenings thanks to Super Bowl 2013....
kicking off the Super Bowl by watching 'sexy' meet 'smart' via GoDaddy. Now seriously, that ad was geared to appeal to the horniest man at the bar, the one drinking heavily and lacking the intention of ever owning a domain. clever marketing, not so sure about that. memorable, yes probably. awkward to watch with your 12 year old son...most definitely.
wanting a mini van. WHAT?!! when has this chick ever thought of owning a minivan, never! but, I gave it some thought after watching super mom create a killer football team for her son and the "epic playdate" commercial had me seriously considering a mini-van's level of coolness compared to my VW Passat. And then Audi reminded me of their awesomeness at which point, I told Lance, "Sorry, your Mom will never drive a mini-van and you will never speed off from prom with a black eye."
being ever so grateful for Destiny's Child. If you were accompanied by your tween son like me...you were eternally grateful for the "crazy in love" dance moves to stop. I mean, the woman's incredible. I'm a long time fan, her voice, looks, ability -it all adds up to dynamite. But as much as I enjoyed the show, I thought, oh s*hit what goes through a tween boy's mind?!! ha!
feeling like The Rock. milk is mandatory in this house. My 3 L's drink up a gallon, almost daily. and yes, I dodge the mishap of running out of milk and have been seen buying it in last nights pajama's.
wanting a beer. a Budwieser at that. I hardly ever drink beer but show me a cowboy, play some Stevie Nicks....and all of a sudden, I'm considering a cold one. Then I remembered the Sky Vodka in the freezer and the Ginger Ale in the fridge and went for a refill and new slice of lime.
What is typical for me and my household and yours too (I'm sure) is....supporting our troops.
There isn't a day that goes by in which we don't think about//talk about//pray for our troops. There isn't a day that camo doesn't walk in and out of my front door or lay in a puddle on my bedroom floor. Not a day without the sound of clinking dog tags. Or a day without the rip of velcro and toss of a PC. Years ago those sounds were absent. Thankfully, I count only 2 Super Bowls that hubby was deployed but for many others their count is as high as 10 and 12+. Our troops, our soldiers and their families have gone through some days and years of hell. We've all fought hard and it's been the support of family, friends, and organizations that makes it all possible. If Jeep wants to promote themselves with patriotism, then so be it. They were able to spread a beautiful message in their commercial last night to millions of viewers. Their marketing was not for you to get up and fill your plate, it wasn't for you to twist off another cap, or drool and envy over a hot chick. Their message was to remind us to support, to remind us that dear ones are still overseas fighting and serving and that many families aren't whole, yet. And, if you happen to purchase a Jeep, then 250 dollars of that will go towards the Operation Safe Return, a campaign Jeep partnered with through USO.
Oh, and the goats scream on the Dorrito's commercial. Very much like mine or Lucas's after the 9th time of rocking our sick babe back to sleep. Thank goodness Lance is grown, his biggest need has been as simple as a back rub or warm bowl of chicken noodle soup....ohhhh, this too shall pass!
Did you do Super Bowl? Did your team win?
