I firmly believe now that SPRING is here!! I was driving along yesterday, and didn't I finally see my first Spring Robin!! I'll have to dig out the book for the kids :) It's a very cute story about how this little girl goes looking all over the garden for her Spring Robin to have returned from the South. It's got lots of stuff about different Spring flowers (crocus, daffodils, fiddle heads, etc). As much as you all know that I love birds ummm, tolerate birds, am totally petrified of birds.. I do like this story, and I do like seeing the Robins return! :D

My throat is on fire... but stuff has to be done!

My throat feels like it's on fire. More accurately, it feels as tho someone is scraping a razor blade down it, with the flat side! It's awful. I did manage to sleep OK last night, which is a blessing. So this makes it 'official' that all three girls in this house have this bug. JA is on day 7 of it, so we are returning to the walk in clinic this afternoon. Ugh. Sophia has it, but she will tell you she feels 'marvelous!' LOL However, her droopy eyes, suffy/runny nose, and the ragginess of her voice will say otherwise! She's flaked out in my bed, waiting for Dora to come on.

In spite of this, the house will not run itself! So here's my to do list for today!! I find these lists extrememly helpful in accomplishing tasks!!

  • get kids ready for school and on the bus
  • fold and put away laundry
  • clean the blue bathroom
  • empty dishwasher
  • tidy kitchen
  • thaw chicken for supper (mmm, fajitas!)
  • post day 2 of our Florida trip
  • do Mom's taxes
  • do Dad's taxes
I think that can be it for now! :D Don't wanna overdo things now :)
