TGIF. No, really!

Thank you for your kind comments about our flu-ridden family. I am LOVING the Amoxicillin the doctor prescribed for all of us. Best invented drug, ever. Can't wait until it works on us all!

I am actually looking forward to this weekend (now, if you read last Friday's post, I was singing a different tune) for the following reasons: a) Doug will be home to take care of us all, b) it is the LAST weekend of Meg's twice-a-week hockey c) Doug will be home to take care of us all (hmmm, pattern?), d) tomorrow night is the Daddy-Daughter Dance and Meg is SO excited to go and e) Doug will be home to take care of us all.

So, poor Izzie. Not only does she have ear infections, bronchitis and a sore throat, but tooth number 8 is about to pop thru. Poor baby. She is finally one up on Annie in that category. She has always been a bit behind Annie in everything (being Baby B and smaller at birth didn't help). She said words first, but is still trying to figure out the whole walking process. She CAN walk, but opts not to, unless it is along furniture, at lightning speed, laughing like a person possessed. Annie, on the other hand, has been walking since she was 10 1/2 months old. No, I'm not joking. WALKING SINCE 10 1/2 MONTHS! Meg walked at 1 year (on her first birthday) and Drew walked on Meg's 4th birthday (so, at 13 months). So, a child walking at 10 1/2 months has been, well, interesting to say the least.

What is everyone doing this weekend? I do hope it's something fun! Drop me a note and tell me all about it. I will be administering antibiotics and maybe even trying to find my house under all the mess. Anyone want to help?

It would have been less expensive to just ask instead of do the study, but men don't ask directions right, so why ask the question. Besides, I don't think they'd listen anyways.

Darling -- My weekend consists of the usual:


(oh and sleeping and cleaning, but they don't work as well in the rhyming.)

Librarian by day. Hooker by night.
Crochet of course. What were you thinking?

Dirty minded girl. YOU need to get out of the house now that Doug is home to help.

(What's thia talking about?)

Don't let her fool you. Auntie Nettie was actually having fun with her Peeps this weekend.

I hope you feel better soon. I've been fending off the flu for 2 weeks now while kids around me drop like flies. Thank God for standardized testing that keeps them away from me.
