Weekend Open Thread

Here’s all four of us in one shot! This is in Charleston, not that there’s any evidence of that. We’re having a good time and eating all the food. And getting lots of mosquito bites. And my gene for car sickness was passed along to my kids, bigly, so that’s been fun.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    Ugh, carsickness! I’m almost 40 and feel like puking every time I have to ride in the backseat. I feel your (collective) pain.

    Despite that, I hope you guys are having a great time!!!

      Yep, me too! It’s really bad. I didn’t choose living in NYC for that reason, but it’s nice not to live somewhere where I really don’t have to be in a car very often. (Although I never get sick when I’m the driver, of course).

    I can’t ride in the back seat of a car for long distances for that exact reason. Dramamine helps, but I don’t like taking medicine if I can help it. Thank goodness my friends and family are so understanding about it.

      Same here. It’s almost a guarantee that I will feel sick riding in a back seat for more than a few minutes. And my kids are the same way. I forgot to give them dramamine for the car ride to JFK on Thursday and joanie threw up all over herself, and then yesterday, I didn’t give them dramamine for our 20-minute drive and Jackson threw up all over himself (and the rental car, which we had to clean). I don’t like taking dramamine myself because it makes me so drowsy. It has the same effect on Jackson, too… but secretly, I don’t mind when his insane energy level goes down a few notches!

        Try Bonnine! It’s a different drug, and I use it instead of Dram, and I don’t get drowsy. I take it before scuba diving, so I really have to be sure not to be sleepy 🙂 they usually sell it at Targets, and Walgreens, but not other stores.

    I took a rectangular scarf and tied it into a damn cute halter top.

    Also, Maybelline made the BabyLips balm into this crayon thingy that really does feel like a balm, but actually has color like a lipstick and stays on all day. Not a joke.
