sick days....

Good morning bloggy friends!
We have been struck with the yucks here at Chez Tickled Pink. Just when I think I can start getting things done around here. Oh well, such are the days of motherhood! I feel very fortunate that I just have to rearrange a few things, and don't have to worry about missing work. I give so much credit to moms who work outside the home!
C has had strep, J had a stomach thing last week, I had a stomach thing Sunday (thank God John was home so I could rest- he is off to CA this week) and now J has some new crud (we will be off to the Dr.'s to test for strep later)
And we are supposed to get 6-10" of snow tomorrow. Oh how I wish we had purchased a snowblower! I am not a fan of shoveling by myself! But John is taking the red eye home Wednesday night, so I will need to get it done so he can get in to the garage.
It has been awhile since he travelled. While I sure do like having complete control of the remote, I miss him! It is hard when he is in a different time zone, because connecting on the phone is always hit or miss. Don't know about the rest of you, but when he is gone, I have such a hard time going to bed. Not that I am being at all productive mind you! Last night I was up until after one reading a Women's Murder Club mystery. I just HAD to finish lol! I really should have quit when J showed up around 11:30 crying because he had a really bad sore throat, but no, I kept reading....
Have a great day everyone! I am going to embrace being home, and try to get ready for the big snow :) Maybe some banana bread is in order.....oooh, and maybe some turkey chili! (not together)

I hope you and your family are all feeling better soon :)

I too am dreading the snow tomorrow; there is already enough on the ground!

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Good luck with the snow. Will this winter ever end?

Are you all planning an ACK trip this summer?

Ooooh that sounds good. (the bread and chili, I mean) I hope everyone is feeling better soon. My husband is out of town too this week. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, I stay up till the wee hours doing stuff too...it's like a slumber party for me. :)
Enjoy the snow (gasp!)
