Yikes, Time to Get Cleaning

So today I'm feeling mostly better, although kind of listless after a day of eating nothing (and by the way I could barely zip my jeans this morning -- it's almost as if there's some kind of relentlessly expanding being inside my abdomen). The kids are both kind of listing around so I was able to spend the morning doing the same. Nutmeg decided she wasn't up to going back to school yet so she's indulging in more sickbed videos.

Now that it's naptime, I was wondering if I should catch up on writing (I owe posts to Chicago Moms Blog and Wise Bread), take a nap or, I dunno, tackle the huge mess that accumulated everywhere in the house yesterday while Epu was trying to work and watch the kids at the same time.

Then I got a phone call. A media photographer wants to come over to take my picture with my huge stockpilies of cereal and diapers for an upcoming article. I gulped and asked, "Today?" Granted, I did manage to get myself into the shower today, but still. Fortunately, they said they wanted to come Wednesday or Thursday. Which gives me time to start the cleanup process.

I'll give you more info when the piece runs, which I'm guessing will be soon since they want to take the photo this week. They're also going to go over to Jewel with me tomorrow morning for a bargain shopping run. Should be interesting -- I wonder if Jewel will kick out the photog.
