Yeah, yeah, I know. I need to post.

I'll post for real sometime soon, I promise. Suffice to say, I'm alive and holding it together.

Meanwhile, here's an "NSV"* from this evening: something I'd never been able to do with my kid before:

= Non-scale victory. The ones that count.

since we're sharing
last weekend, ocean city had free rides for 4 hours, and i took some kids with gabe. they dragged me on this thing that swings 60-75 feet back and forth in the air. first i checked with the machine operator to ensure i could fit, that was a resounding yes! so i was psyched....
THEN, it started to do it's thing, and omg, my stomache left my body and i was woozy and going to be ill. i was waving frantically to get off of the ride, while the kids screamed with glee, i was so uncomfortable
that i would mess up their good time and hurl into the booth ahead of me.
i think the operator stopped the ride early because as i hobbled out of the seats, i apologized and she said, guess you can fit, but maybe you should stay on the ground.
amen to that one!

I'm glad you survived! I guess fitting isn't the only issue. :)

I also got unexpectedly queasy the last time I tried to ride the Scrambler. I never get motion sick, but apparently, in my 30s, I can't really handle the spinny rides any more.
