Yikes!

Ok. So, I have changed my domain name… Which apparently means that some of my links on my pages now go to porn instead of to the posts that I had linked them to… I am fixing it, but if you came across this, I am sorry. I do not know why porn seems to be the default link. But, whatever.

So, I suppose I should explain my new name. A few folks have asked me about it and I did promise to write-up a post.

My maiden name means “fox” in Belgian. I always thought it was pretty nifty. The fox is also a symbol of someone who watches in secret, who holds secrets. That appeals to me. I used “Fox” as part of my online name for a few years. I feel a connection with foxes. It fits me.

Brooms. Symbols of cleaning and domestic care. They sweep out dirt and negativity. I like the idea of cleaning out that which is negative. Housework and childcare is hard enough without negative energies.

That is it. Nothing earth shattering. Just a change in the way I see myself. I am focussing less on exercise (which is still a part of me) and more on household. I know my focus will shift over the years and this is a name that I think will work with the many changes.

Tummy Troubles

I am totally ready for my tummy to be back to normal. Thursday at about 4:30 am, I started yakking up uncontrollably. TMI. It sucked. I was also up at that time with baby and didn’t have time to put him down and run to the bathroom. So I held him while I hugged the porcelain god. Thankfully, the hubby woke up and took him from me. It was a miserable day. Water wouldn’t even stay down. I was starving and super thirsty by the time I could finally get a few sips to stay down.

It is now Saturday night and I still have very little appetite and the tummy is still twisting ominously. I made Chex mix in hopes that might spark something. It is one of my favorite snacks… But no. The smell totally turns me off right now.

And, before you ask, I am not pregnant. I’m actually pretty sure this is food poisoning. Yay!
