Random Thoughts

*I made it to Shelby's field trip yesterday. We had a fun time. The performance was enjoyable (for Kindergartners).

*I am on day 10 of my Wii Fit workout. Where else can you make a baby bottle, wipe a 3 year old's bottom and catch vomit while working out?! Only from the comforts of your own home!!!

*Things the dog chewed up after his escape from his crate while home alone today: 1 pair of shoes, several diapers, a whole box of wipes (box included), a bracelet, Emily's favorite toy, one sippy cup, one package of thank you cards, and a box of tissue (box included). There were three chew toys and two bones available at his disposal. I just don't understand!!!

*Shelby is sick to her stomach. It's going to be a long night. She has had some phenergan. Best invention ever...a compound that you rub on their arms. You can't give suppositories when they've got diarrhea and what good does it do to take it by mouth?!

*This morning's temperature was 19°. Saturday it is going to be 70°! Can I get a whoot whoot?!

*I'm still on the COBRA insurance from my old job. I have got to make myself research some insurance companies for dental, medical, vision, and term insurance. I just can't seem to make myself do it!!!

*Did you hear that the postal service is considering cutting mail delivery back to five days a week due to the significant decrease in the volume of mail and the rise in the cost of delivering it?! Also, there will be another rate increase in May.

*Self cleaning oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, & lap top: I cannot imagine my life without them.

*Well, I can't imagine my life without my husband and children either. *grin*

*Oh, for those of you wondering...Emily is better! She's got a bit of a cough still, but for the most part she's well and my brother is well. It turned out that he only had a virus. Whew!

*I'm so ready for spring...and summer! Shelby asks every day if she can go swim in the pool! *LOL*

I really don't envy your having to look for insurance. I had to do that when my COBRA benefits were expiring. Luckily, after I got some lined up, hubby ended up getting a direct job with a company, and we got corporate health insurance. Whew! That COBRA coverage is expensive!

Good luck with the insurance search. I'd rather have a root canal than shop insurance. Blech.

And what's up with the dog?

Sounds like thing are humming along a little bit better. Glad to hear that Emily and your brother are doing better.

Thank goodness the dog didn't get one of the new pacifiers.

I've never heard of taking Phenergan that way - it's brilliant! Hope Shelby is feeling better.

I'm ready for spring, too!

I'm glad Emily is on the mend. I was wondering. Now Shelby is sick so you still can't get a good nights sleep.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
