I'm totally out

Well, I lasted for over three weeks on the "post daily" bandwagon, but tanked as of Wednesday. And when I fall off the wagon, I fall all the way off. Thanksgiving was fine, except for the meltdown that Lil Joe had (hinting at the possibility that his ear infection was returning) and Mom being somewhat short tempered at me for bringing a sick child to the party. But, my mother loves me even though she yells at me, and I love her even when she annoys me. By Friday, my sore throat and muscle aches had returned, and I was having trouble swallowing. My fever has risen steadily, peaking at 101.7* and the gunk I've expectorated in the past two days would gross out even a middle school boy. OK, I'm going back to sleep.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
