Matt Betts and I are having a challenge to see who can qualify as an active member of the HWA first. Why? Because we wanna. And it’s always much more fun to do something like this with somebody…or against somebody. Our contest officially begins today, and I was going to have a huge “Are you ready to rumble AUUUGGGHHHHH!!!!!” thing to kick it off. I was going to swagger and tell you all about how Matt seems like a nice guy, and it’s easy to make nice guys cry, and I was going to win, etc etc etc. (Insert familiar Mercedes “I Can Do It!” trash talk here.) But this morning my baby girl had three seizures within ten minutes, and we got out of the ER a while ago. She’s never had them, and they have no idea what happened because all of her tests looked fine, so we’re scheduling an appointment with a neurologist. Rah Rah and Sis Boom Bah, but I’m going to have to start a day or two later than originally planned. Don’t think that I won’t win, though, cuz I will.
I am also comforted by knowing that I’m two rounds ahead of somebody in a separate challenge. Let’s all hope that it stays that way.
Lies to come tomorrow, I swear. For now, it’s family cuddle time.
