Da Doo Doo Doo De Da Da Da
Greetings and salutations, Blogger Bretheren.
My darling school attending kids, Pumpkin and Fuzzy, brought home an ebola-based cold that began with Hammer on Wednesday night, and myself on Thursday night. Of course, I always get it worse due to the immunosuppressive meds. Joy.
Yes. Yesterday, I felt like dog doo. Today, I feel like the dog doo smooshed onto a shoe bottom.
Yeah, it's like that.
Anyhow, I wanted to drop in. I haven't kept up with blogs as much as I would like, but as I start to feel better, I will catch up!
Thanks for all your wonderful comments on Thankful Thursday! I didn't begin the tradition though. It was Gretchen from http://livinginbamacountry.blogspot.com/ .
Anyhoo... yesterday was a nice day, and hectic all at the same time. Hubby worked from the house, which was lovely. We took the kids out to breakfast before school, a treat for all!
When we came back home I napped until noon-ish, then Hubby, Hammer, my mom and myself had lunch, sandwiches from a favorite local deli. Hammer had chicken breast, but we all had the Fresh Mozzarella and Roasted Peppers with Balsamic Vinegar on a fresh baked baquette. Yum.
After school we had DogBoy for the evening, as his parents were having a much deserved treat of a dinner out. DogBoy, a) doesn't do Italian food as he is a very finicky eater and b) needed to go to the 6th grade Halloween Dance as a reporter for the school paper. Pumpkin was attending the dance, so it all made sense.
After the dance, which Pumpkin attended at a very cool hippie, her friend Tiara came home to sleepover.
I know, we are nuts. But, Hubby and I want the kids hanging here with their friends. We want to be the house, so we can be a part of it, keeping an eye out. The kids really do like to come here, too.
My parents treated the whole crew of us to dinner at a local favorite and it was Octoberfest! They had a German Oompah band and we all sang and clapped and had some fun! Yay! The kids even got into it. My kids are so cool! They don't get embarrassed and really embrace fun!
Hubby took care of them all this morning, got Tiara home at 9am as she had soccer today, and whisked Pumpkin off to a birthday party by 9:30am. The birthday party is a movie theater rental and they do a nice party.
Which brings us to now! Hammer and I are relaxing, while Hubby and Fuzzy go to pick up Pumpkin from her party.
Oops - they are back! Gotta go!
