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 .

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!

be well...

I hope you start to feeling better - you all exhaust me with all you do!!!
enjoy the weekend and get some rest!

Beth said...

Sounds hectic but fun!

Hope you all get to feeling better soon. That Ebola stuff is nasty. ;)

Lisa said...

I hope you start feeling better soon!

Sounds like you've been having a great couple of days with some good food sprinkled in as well.

I would have loved to see the ooompa band, they are so much fun.

At least if you are the house all the kids like to be hanging at you know exactly what is going on, that is a good thing. Besides, you rarely sound bored!!! ;)

I'm feeling like dog doo also!
Get well soon!

Bill said...

Sorry to hear of your world wide illness. That is what you get for having the entire neighborhood in your home. I'll bet that local Deli you got the Fresh Mozzarella and Roasted Peppers at is Italian. I would give up my home for a good, old fashioned Italian deli like I grew up with in NJ. Sounds like the kids are having a lot of fun. Regards, Bill.

Holly said...

My co-worker's fiance is a school teacher who lovingly refers to his kids as "Germ monkeys" - I think you would agree!

Get well soon!

It's almost Halloween!!!!

Chris/cacklinrosie101 said...

Oh my gosh, Dawn, an Octoberfest with a German oompah can't get better than that. I would have loved it. Hope you feel better and yep, I used to always have a house full of kids also. Now, you are one cool mom! HUGS

Chrissie said...

Sounds like you all had a blast and how nice of your parents to include everyone and take them out. They ROCK! John and I were the same way about wanting our children at home and the friends came over except it was one per child.. since we had three kids three extras was enough LOL. Gretchen was a dear one to start the thankfuls. I just noticed your little ipod thingy with videos that is too cute. I might have to steal one of them for my blog. I have music, but no videos and those are the best part. You and I would get along I like your music.
Take care, Chrissie

Glad you had a fun day even though you felt like dog doo :o)

lisa jo said...

Hope you feel better soon...i have cold or something also...sounds like you have had some fun and good eating. it is cool to be the house all the teens like to come to. XO

Bethe said...

You busy girl! Just reading it all made me dizzy. It's so great hubby does early mornings. Hope your cold gets better quick (haha) I know ALL about those immosupressants. They make my hair fall out : P Anyhooo take good care of yourself!


Jeannette said...

I do hope you feel much better soon. Hugs

Missie said...

Hope you feel better soon. Kevin and I like to be the hangout house too. I don't mind if kids are hanging around, at least then I know what they're up to.

Toon said...

I see you're just as busy as you were in J-Land! lol


a corgi said...

I think its neat you want your kids/their friends at your house; I did the same when mine were your kids ages; stocked the fridge with their favorite foods/drinks, you name it. a pastor's wife told the ladies at Bible study to let your house be the house where kids like to come; you get to know who your kids are hanging around with and you get to keep an eye on things; so you are doing good Dawn by opening up your home!!

sorry you are under the weather though :(


Gillie said...

I don't think it's crazy~we wanna be that house too! I so would prefer my kid at home with his friends so I can secretly supervise that to have him somewhere else and not know what he is up to!

Kath said...

Hope you are feeling better by the time I post this comment.I have been away again.Sounds other than the colds you have had,you have also had a blast here there and everywhere he-he..Love to read how much fun you all have.ENJOY whilst you are able and they are young,it's the best time.Take Care God Bless kath xx

erarein63 said...

Hope you feel better soon, it must take a lot of energy to keep up with your crew! De; )

Linda said...
