Christmas Anarchy

A scorecard update:

Queen Mother has made a total of 6 trips to the grocery store since yesterday.

Cats are being let out of doors that are supposed to remain shut. Prompting Houseboy to lose his shit. (his cats are the indoor variety, and his only real love in life)

The Kaiser’s mother rescued the gift I nearly botched for the Kaiser.

Everyone might as well just spoonfeed Count Waffles straight sugar. Despite my pleas to try and temper the holiday goodies given to the toddler, he’s being handed cookies and candy every other second.

Did I mention the Count has croup and Princess Peanut has diarrhea, a runny nose, a chest cold, and cutting her two front teeth???

I took an Imitrex and had some wine and could care less about anything.

Its anarchy. Fa la la la la…la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

But actually, its turning into the fun kind of anarchy. Not the kind where people die and things burn down. So that’s good. I think I just finally had to let go and enjoy. Which is exactly what I’m going to do from here on out! Happy freaking Holidays! May you all enjoy your crazy ass family as much as I am going to enjoy mine!


  1. Amen Sister!

    And it seems diarrhea is the poop of choice this Christmas for little ones – my daughter is sick as well. Hope the kids get better soon.

    Merry Christmas!

  10. (btw, I nominated you for mommy blog on the Bobs)

  11. Oh god…

    I think my baby has croup as WELL as diarreah, a fever, AND is teething.

    He’s miserable, and now I’ve got some sort of horrid flu thing that feels like my lungs will implode at any moment.


    (I’m glad you got the gift thing sorted out!)

  12. Thank you Running.I don’t even know what they are! But thanks!

  13. Oh my god… hilarious! Just keep that wine coming and this could be the best holiday of your life!

    A very Merry Christmas to you and yours–see you on the flip side 😉

  14. Well, a hearty Happy Freaking Holidays to you and yours as well!

    Love that Imitrex. Have your tried the new Rapidly Dissolving Zomig? I think it works even faster than the Imitrex injections! Lurve my vasoconstrictors 🙂

  15. Your Highness seems to be enjoying Christmas spirit a lot…

    Wish you and your family a very Happy and Blessed Christmas!

    Live Well and enjoy your Anarchy…

  16. I realize you may consider this unwelcome meddling, especially at this particular time when you are under seige at the hands of your MIL, but here goes anyway.

    I am both in the healthcare industry and a migraine sufferer who uses Imitrex. I absolutely had to comment on your use of Imitrex and wine.

    Number one, Imitrex is not a pain reliever. It will do nothing for a “regular” headache. A true, classic migraine is the result of dilated cerebral blood vessels. That is why your head pulses pain with every heartbeat.

    Imitrex is a vasoconstrictor. This means it causes those dilated blood vessels to contract and THAT is what stops the pain and also why it has such a dramatic, quick effect. It is not relieving the pain, it is reversing the cause of the pain. For that reason, it will not relieve just any type headache, no matter how bad it is. It is for migraines and in some cases for cluster headaches, as prescribed.

    Imitrex can, in theory, be dangerous, for the very reason it works. Constricting blood vessels may cause other immediate health problems such as heart attack or stroke.

    PLEASE, do not take Imitrex for anything, NOT FOR ANYTHING, but a true migraine. And don’t mix it with any form of alcohol. Also, I would mention that wine actually triggers migraines in many people.



    IMITREX IS ONLY FOR MIGRAINES or as prescribed for cluster headaches.

    MIXING IMITREX WITH ALCOHOL WILL NOT GIVE SOME GREAT HIGH. That ain’t happening, girl, not the chemistry of the thing at all.

    Ask your doctor. PLEASE.

  17. Oh MEDS, its really ok. I actually worked myself into a classic migraine frenzy that day. Aura and everything. I had the wine before the migraine hit…so that was kind of a freak bonus/accident. I never take my imitrex unless I get the aura. My doctor gave me a loooooong lecture about that when he prescribed it, because my family has a history of strokes. I appreciate your concern!
