I'm no Cinderella

It's come to my attention that I would make a really lousy Cinderella. For many reasons. . .

5. I can't dance.
4. I don't care for mice. If a bunch of them tried to hang out in my room with me, I'd probably freak out, not sing songs with them!
3. My charms wear off well before midnight. More like 10:00.
2. Glass slippers sound terribly uncomfortable. I'm all about sensible shoes.

But the reason that was most painfully obvious to me this week is this:
1. Scrubbing floors is hard work! I do not have the stamina for it. It took less than 2 minutes of scrubbing vomit off the carpet on Saturday to convince me that the life of the despised step-daughter is not for me. Nope, I think I'll stick to the life I have.



(So there you have it, readers, my third post in a week in which I use the word "vomit." Anyone think I need to find a new topic?!)

I wouldn't make a good Cinderella either, but the picture from the movie does carry me back to my childhood. That was probably my favorite Disney movie when I was a kid. I didn't own it until much later, but I used to borrow it from your mom to watch it. :) Life was so much simpler then.

Is everyone healthy now? Clearly, you're still psychologically and emotionally getting over the disgusting vomiting episodes, but is everyone physically recovered?

Yes, thankfully, we are all well. It was just a 24 hour thing for J, and none of the rest of us got it. Yeah!
