So far so Sandy

I have been off work for three days with pneumonia (i thought i felt ill but i didn;t realize I was actually sick).  Sandy has closed the office for another day or two.


OKOKOK I know, this is a serious storm for everyone in its path but let me have my moment. I get to stay away from Psycho boss for another day or two. When I emailed her that I had pneumonia she asked for a report asap. Whatever. Fire me byatch!!! I don't freakin' care anymore.

So, Sandy means...

  • We played dress up dragon this morning - awesome
  • We went for a quick walk while the rain was mild - kids were awesome
  • We just ordered sushi - bless NYC!!!

Being a mum to toddler twins is never ending drama. It's great, don't get me wrong, wouldn't trade it for the world. Yet, I would trade some of this floor beating, screaming and MINE!!!!

And that is Pip!!!!!

However, hearing my boy count or sing erases it all. Mimi can actually read and enjoys reading to daddy. She is a daddy's girl. It is lovely to watch.

But right now, kids are asleep and we can catch up on our shows. Yahoooooooo!


  1. thanks for posting.

  2. Omg your boss sounds so awful. Because I have been there before and have morbid curiosity about such train wrecks of the supposedly adult world, I would love to know more details, but don't mind me, I'm a ghoul. What is it about bosses and thr world of work that turns people into psychopaths?!! Enjoy your time off!!

  3. Glad you are safe. I am in Queens, but we are fine in my area. I work in a school, so I've been home with my 2 year-old twins, too. My son must be plotting with Pip and coordinating annoying behaviors lol. Max kept climbing onto the TV stand over and over until 10:30 last night, and of course, fell and smacked his face really hard. I just kept praying that I wouldn't have an ER visit in the hurricane! The sad part is that no matter how many trying moments I have, I never, ever, ever wish I were at work! 10 hours of continuous toddler tantrums are nothing compared to psycho b**ch bosses! Feel well and daydream about psycho sitting in the dark, with storm tainted food and no working plumbing hee hee.

  4. Hey EB -- so glad you and yours came through the storm all okay and hopefully you were off work today too; or, at least maybe things in the office were quiet? Take good care.

  5. After publishing this post out lights went out ! We decamped to a hotel. Ah well!

  6. I think your blog is very inspiring! Especially for women over 40. Life really doesn’t end in 40-50! It’s only the beginning! You’re absolutely right! It's never too late to become a mother. I know it from my own experience. I gave birth to my daughters when I was 61! During my whole life there were no man to have kids with. I was not really lucky in choosing partners and there were no one whom I wanted to have kids from. So here I am, 58 years old, no kids no family. I thought that it's too late for all these. So I came to terms with the situation and continue my lonely life. But in a couple of months I met my Jorge - the love of my whole life, a man who loved me with his whole heart, a man, whom I gave all my love. All those failures in love were just wiped out and forgotten. Now I have him and nothing else matters. He was 63, he also had no kids. We understood and felt each other from the first meeting. And we've decided that it's time for us to build a family, which we had never had! I have menopause so we were not able to conceive a baby naturally. We didn't back down and decided to try ivf with donor egg. We've found clinic in Ukraine BioTexCom and went there. We became parents of 2 beautiful girls! They are 3 years old and we are the happiest family in the world! The service was good, their doctors are one of the best. They even helped us with our girls, when they were just born. Jorge and I were confused, we had no kids so we were scared to make something wrong. We didn't want to hurt our little babies. We didn't know how to hold our children and how to swaddle them, but the pediatrician and the coordinator of the program really helped us and showed how to do it right. They gave us recommendations how to treat our babies and we are really grateful about that. I've never regret about my decision. Finally I have big family I was dreaming about. I wish you and your boys all the best!
