I was on vacation. Don’t be jealous.

3 Dec

This year, for the first time in many, many years, the husband and I decided to stray from the norms of Thanksgivings past and embark on a road trip to beautiful Southern California.  There we would visit friends and family; it was going to be FUN!

Here are the highlights from our nine-day trip:


  • On our almost eleven hour drive to San Diego (FAIL), our toddler began, and continued to, shit his britches with such vigor husband deemed it comparable to the sound of a milkshake being blown out of a tuba.
  • Stopped at a Denny’s for dinner in the middle of nowhere.  Was pretty sure there was going to be a zombie attack at any moment.  It was fucking creepy.  In the end though, it was toddler’s next blowout that had me hiding under the table.  I wished for zombies.



  • Eight hours in, why has toddler not passed out yet?  I knew I should have brought the whiskey.  For me.


  • Aw, beautiful sunny wet, rainy, and dreary San Diego!  Rain, rain go away.  Don’t ever fucking come back when I’m on vacation!
  • SUSHI!  YAY!  Saki bomb, Saki bomb, Saki bomb.  Karaoke!  YAY!


  • Augh.  Katie no feel good.  Hangover?  Wishful thinking.  Try stomach flu.  Thanks milkshake boy.
  • In between puke sessions, attempted to “break” my friends’ cute-n-psycho Chihuahua (Bella).

me: Why you runnin? You come here!

Bella: Bitch you best stop frontin.  I will beat cho ass in this cute ass
dress!  Whhhaatt now?  Huh, huh?

me: Nah, uh?  No you di’nt!

Bella: Bitch, yes I did!

OUCH!  She just bit me on my lip! And not even on the top lip – you
know, the one I want to get some injections in?!?  Hated it!

  • Twelfth hour of throwing up . . . what’s that?  Oh, just cramps.  On the bright side, at least I’m not pregnant.


  • Bye bye San Diego!  Rain and puke.  It was fabulous.
  • Hello L.A.  Please don’t disappoint.
  • YAY, I lost three pounds!  Who loses any pounds on vacation!  I love you stomach flu.  I feel so skinny!  Maybe I should reconsider the whole bulimia thing-I think I just trained for it.
  • Staying with the in-laws.
  • What’s this shit?  SORE THROAT?  You have got to be fucking kidding me!?!


  • Head cold accelerating.  Stressors high.  Scotty, beam me mutha fuckin home.
  • In-law’s dog thinks toddler is a chew toy.
  • La Brea tar pits.  Nothings more depressing than this:
    Mommy!! : (

  • Then I found out there were GIANT sloths!  Just imagine:

This little guy a million times bigger!! Awww!!


  • I feel great today!  If by “great” you mean “like shit.”
  • Wow, Rodeo Drive is so awesome!  Popped in to FENDI and blew .15 . . .  after the police escorted me out. (F’n NyQuil.)
  • Ah oh, somebody’s scoring points for hitting pedestrians!  And I’m not talking about Grand Theft Auto or me!
  • I’m going to bed now, but first I will cry my eyes out.  Being sick and on vacation sucks.


  • It’s a fucking miracle!  I’m WELL!!  Off to the happiest place on earth, the bar Disneyland!!
  • Day seven is bomb.
  • I heart day seven!!
  • !!!♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Day Seven ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥!!


  • I almost died today.  Twice.
  • Did you say something?  Can’t hear past the mucus party in my head.  I wasn’t invited.
  • Strolling through Old Pasadena and came upon a most awesome store – Gold Bug featuring an exhibition by:

Lisa Woods
“Insects at Home”

This shit is major!

  • Low-fat Thanksgiving dinner, on a Friday.  It’s magically DELICIOUS!
  • Packin our shit.  There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.  Click, click, click.


  • Shouldn’t really count as a day, and neither should day one.  Driving home.

Summary:  Being sick sucks.  Being sucker punched sick sucks more.  Disneyland is bad ass.  Home is best.

Does this shit only happen to me or what?

    So this is how you stay sane from the blessings of motherhood and economic shadows.

    Pretty close to FOTFL, or even IWMP.
    Read the whole lot like 5 desserts in a row.
    Outrageous fun.
