Can I Foretell Doom, or Can I Foretell Doom?

Hey y'all. We're sick and worn out here at FriedOkra Manor. Head on over to 5 Minutes for Parenting, where I whined a little about it. (I know. I can really sell it when I want to, can't I?)

The beauty is, just about everything I wrote in my last post here came true in the space of 12 hours.

So bad news, my kid's sick and I haven't had more than 45 minutes of sleep in a stretch for two days, but hey, good news is it turns out I'm psychic!

Or maybe I just know how to play the odds.

Y'all can subscribe to FriedOkra's feed here.


  1. Oh dear! You poor things. Loads of get well sonns and hugs (although not too close, I don't want to catch it..hehe!) your way!

    On the plus side I now know who to turn to when I want to know what the weather's going to be ;)

  2. So funny! I got a call from my daughter yesterday saying she wanted me to come over so she could have a nap - she lives about 5 1/2 hours away! I gave her sympathy and told her that she will live through it - after all, I did! You will make it, even if it feels like there is no way right now!

  3. oh no, sorry to hear about the sickness and most of all the no sleep! hateful, really.

    I will head over to 5 minutes for parenting and check out your post!

  4. That is a little freaky...but really cool if you can use your powers for good too!

    I hope everyone feels better, and that you don't get it!!!

  5. Oh no! I hope everyone returns to good health soon.

  6. Oh no! I'm sending you well wishes. Do you need more Clorox wipes and antibacterial soap??? I hope you all are feeling better soon.

  7. Blech. We had the stomach ick last week -- only two of the kids caught it, thank heaven. And only one of them is of an age where she's still an unpredictable little barf volcano . . . after age 5 or so, they are reasonably reliable about getting it in some kind of container (so you have that to look forward to!).

    In an unrelated event, our parakeet also threw up. I'm not even kidding.

    Hope the rest of you escape the bug!

  8. I hope everyone is feeling better now and that you are able to get some sleep!

  9. Hope you guys are already well! When everybody gets sick, it is really hard to even take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest and sleep. It will really do you good.
