A deal my kid would love if… well, funny story

Okay, so, hi! How are you? Life has been pretty uneventful, here. I mean, my youngest graduated from high school and my parents came for graduation right when it appeared my daughter had gotten the flu—and that was terrifying because I didn’t want my folks to get sick—but hey, good news! Turns out my daughter has mono, and since her grandparents don’t spend a lot of time making out with her, I think they’re safe. But the bad news is that apparently mono can make you really, really sick, so now my kid is in the hospital. Which means I’m in the hospital! Hello from the land of terrible coffee!

(It’s fine. Everything’s fine. She’s finally a little better and we are hoping she’ll be sprung soon.)

Anyway, I hope you will forgive me for abandoning you. I was a little busy.

Now that I’ve had a shower and grabbed my laptop, I am of course guilt-shopping for said kid who is totally miserable. So here: Charlotte Russe is currently offering 20-50% off everything, plus free shipping on every order. My daughter loves their stuff, and it’s a lot more fashionable than the gown she’s currently wearing. Most of it even provides more coverage in the back than said gown, too. Worth a look if you have teen/college-aged young ladies who like trendy clothes (and you like reasonable prices).


  1. Hoping your daughter is feeling better soon. I had mono (many years ago) and was out of school for a whole month. Be patient with her 🙂 and I wish her better soon!!

  2. At least it’s not mid-semester. The day before driving my son back to school for sophomore year, he was diagnosed with mono. I crossed my fingers and drove him back to school, hoping I didn’t just flush several thousand $$ down the drain. It all turned at well; seemed he has a “mild” case. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  3. So sorry your daughter has been sick. Hope she feels better soon!

  4. Oh no! Best wishes to Chickie and hope y’all are outta there ASAP!

  5. Wow! I wonder if it is a particularly virulent strain this year? I know another person who ended up hospitalized with mono a few weeks ago (Also a college student).

    Glad she’s on the mend!

  6. Mono is bad. Bad coffee is inexcusable. Get outta there asap.

  7. Sorry to hear your daughter has mono. I had it when I was in 3rd grade – I was SO sick and missed over a month of school. I hope she gets better soon!
