Questions from a tired mind

Yesterday was a long day. I had to do the mom thing all day with a sick kid. She was throwing up. It wasn't pretty. Even with my own kid, that's one bodily function that I don't always handle so well.

With all the running around I did all day, because heaven forbid I keep all my sick supplies in one place, I was quite tired. By the end of the evening, I was done. Stick a fork in me. I took a shower, not only to escape, but to disinfect. I don't do sick so well myself. I turn into a whiny I want my mommy person. It's ugly!

My plan was to watch some crappy tv and just veg out. There were so many things spinning in my head and I wanted to blog in the worst way. I needed to get those thoughts and stories out, but forming a sentence was close to impossible. Until a certain commercial for a new show came on.

For lack of better things on, I ended up watching Intervention. I've seen too many people struggle with addiction in my own personal life, so I can relate to the show. But I also like happy endings. I get really pissed when the people don't make it out sober.

I normally ignore commercials, but one for a new show caught my attention - Relapse. It's crazy that we live in a world where these shows not only exist, but thrive. But at the same time I have to wonder....

If people who start off on Intervention relapse and end up in an episode of Relapse, is that the same thing as a rerun?

My whole life must be a rerun then. I try to stop drinking Coke and always relapse.

Seriously? Is it about the same people that go through Intervention?? LOL at it possibly being a rerun!

I like Intervention, and like you, I get mad when they don't make it out sober.

Sorry about GG. I'm so exhausted I can barely type. I get the sick kid thing..for a week and a half now. Ugh.

Oh, I'm sorry! Pukey kids are THE worst! I'd be exhausted, too!

I used to watch Intervention and it's such a downer when they don't make it. :(
