She Has Done It, Ladies and Gentlemen!

I dropped Bub off at preshool at 8:55. A whole 5 minutes early! I listened to him tell his teacher that "his baby brudder dropped Mommy's M&M jar on the floor and broke it.", provided the correct question in response to his story..."but who got the jar down for baby brother?", and was back in the car by 8:57. It's going to be a good day. I can just feel it.

Yesterday, I was feeling really cruddy. I was trying to kick a sinus infection and not my children who had the annoying knob turned all the way to "kill mom". However, there was good that came from it. I totally spaced swimming lessons and my Lou, Lou was so GRACIOUS and forgiving of her crazy mother that it almost brought me to tears. To make up for it, I taught her how to make friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss. Then, in the afternoon, Doc called to tell me that he had his nurse cut his day short so he could come home and take care of things for me. Awww. He did, too. He gave the kids bath and wrangled them into cleaning up the school room (which was a disaster because we had turned a cardboard box into an airplane and made a mess doing so). Then he helped them clean their rooms and tucked those sweet little babies into bed when they were done. After that, he checked on me and then he took all the laundry down to the laundry room and started the process. Then finished all his charts and paperwork from the day. What a man.

Today, I woke up feeling a bit better and praying that the antibiotic would kick this thing before Saturday when I'm meeting ALL my sisters (there are 4 of us), in Wichita, to run the Turkey Trot 2 mile run! It will be fun! Rock Star, by the way, ran over 4 miles on Sunday...the show off. I keep telling Doc that she is 6 years younger and has had 2 babies less than me...I can't be expected to keep up!!

So now I'm off to help Lou with school (as if she needs my help). And I'm expecting today to be a great day. I hope yours is, too!

I really just think you STOLE MY time! I got in the van at 9:01 this morning and couldn't believe it was that late! I have NEVER been late taking K to school...hhhmmmm, coincidence?, you have to wonder! LOL

And - good for you with all this running! Sounds like a little sibling rivalry helps keep you on your toes!

Oh you sweet thing! I am so sorry you are feeling under the weather. I remember being sick and in bed for a couple of days (unusual for me) and thinking how good my then 3 year old daughter was being. When I was feeling better, I went into her room to spend a little time with the sweet baby, only to find she had been entertaining herself with a bottle of Elmer's glue. She had set up "house" in her room. You know... a little kitchen, with food glued to the plates and her favorite baby in a high chair with food glued to her hand... a little bedroom for her and her favorite baby, with a little hammock made out of a baby blanket my grandmother had crocheted for her glued to the wall and the side of her bed... and she had decorated with glue, too. Lovely. But fortunately glue washes off of everything, even little girls! :D I hope you get to feeling better and have a really great day!

Whoo Hoo for being on time! Can't wait for our big race! I think Kim is right about sibling rivalry. I wouldn't be doing this if I wasn't trying to keep up with you punks! I still say I get a bigger, brighter medal than you girls since I have way more junk in my trunk to move across that finish line! :) Hee Hee.

Hope you feel better soon. I can't stand being sick.
