Five hours and counting!!

Today started with George barfing at 6:30. And then she tells me "See I told you I was going to puke!" Lucky for me ElCid had gotten her a bowl and all she puked up was water.

Jr. woke up complaining of a stomachache and I wasn't about to force her to go to school after George's display so she stayed home.

Fred also woke up saying she still had her headache from last week. I think she's feeling the same way I was a couple weeks ago so she also stayed home.

My day with 100 things planned suddenly got canned for my 3 sick kiddos. In the morning they were calm and subdued but got a wind about 11 and then crashed out at 1 for quiet time. I admit I also took a nap. I was just tired. George didn't have a great night and all the stress is just about to do me in.

The party on Saturday is creeping closer and so is her baptism. Neither thing is a world ending deal and if something doesn't get done it will be okay. I keep telling myself that, now I just have to believe it!

ElCid gets tomorrow off but has things he needs to get done like a haircut (he's masquerading as the 5th Beatle this week) and a dentist visit. I'd like to have a dinner celebration but getting people to agree might be hard.

Well now I only have 4 hours and 15 minutes. He actually cut back quite a bit this year he's only done 200 hours of overtime instead of 300. One more year down...only 32 (or more) to go.

So, you were posting at 7 pm? I saw "5 hours and counting" and thought immediately of CSI... some people's mothers!

I am headed to work in 90 minutes so I will not be making phone calls to you and spoiling freedom day... didn't want you to waste energy screening against my calls. If I call it will be for something 'real' ;-}

I spent hours yesterday with JE at his school, they were hosting day one of a two day District 3 choir festival (competition), and all 3 of our groups sang day one, it was very nice. Of Course I bought the obligatory rootbeer and ice cream for floats! You would have thought he was too young to notice the floats after concerts thing... NOT so.

Have a wonderful day! We love and miss you... xoxoxox
