Top 10 Things Learned While Mom was Sick...10+ Days

  1. The dishwasher doesn't unload itself. 
    Even though the dishwasher gets full and the dishes get washed, unless Mom specifically says "Crab empty the dishwasher" the dishes stay INSIDE the dishwasher.
  2. Mom disappears after being sick for 3 days.
    In the beginning, very attentive children brought popsicles, drinks, tissues, medicine.  After 10 days, I got ONE visit from the girls.  No visits from dh.  Ouch.
  3. Puffs Plus tissues, though occasionally causing excessive amounts of oil to develop around the nose, are the preferred tissue when copious amounts of fluid are leaking from sinus cavities.
  4. When Puffs Plus are not available, toilet tissue, napkins, and the occasional sock will work.
  5. Sapper *can* get the kids out of bed and to school.  (Maybe I add too much volume to the normal routine, causing him to avoid us like the plague?)
  6. 7Up and popsicles.  Not necessarily in that order.
  7. My mother is the most wonderful woman in the world.
  8. Flannel sheets are excellent for keeping the sickly warm & 'coasty' in cold weather.  However, they also trap heat when the sickly person has a fever (resulting in the formation of puddles).  Bleccch.
  9. Not all antibiotics are created equal.
  10. Sick time, when depleted, does not spontaneously regenerate.  ::sigh::
The biggest thing learned, though, was that H1N1 stinks!

Towels Are Inappropriate Climbing Gear

Once upon a time, there was a little girl.  This little girl was a little over 11-yrs-old.  She enjoyed singing with her friends, spelling class, and swim team.

One day this little girl came home from her swim practice.  She hadn't put on her clothes after practice because she only had her school clothes in her backpack.  So since she was wrapped in a towel, and she didn't want to open the gate that keeps her precious puppy from invading the upper regions of the house, she attempted to vault the gate.

And she got stuck.

"erkkk.  Halp?!"

Daddy to the rescue!

Silly Crab.

Hello world!  Let's get this party started!  Happy birthday, Shayla... you are now officially a 12-year-old! Yay!!! Updates:  Grandparents day has come already, thanks for everything Grammy and Papa!  Shayla turned 12!  I need to sleep!  Mom went to the ER with dad while Grammy stayed over night because Mom felt so awful. Feel better, Mom!

Hi it's me again!

Almost time to go to bed, so I am going to go take a shower.  Bye!  Happy b-day Grammy! :)

Hi, it's Crab!

Well, it's me again, Crab!  School is going great, but sadly mom is really sick so our grandma (Grammy, Happy Birthday!) has come over to our house again.  Get well soon mom!

breakfast a la Yell

Today I woke up feeling cruddy. Really super sore throat, sinus congestion, aches. I fell back asleep & was awakened by the chicklets.

Crab brought in scrambled eggs & buttered toast. Yell brought in hot apple cider.

It didn't cure whatever is ailing me, but it sure did make me feel loved!

Hello! It's meee-eee!

Hi it's meee-eee!  I recently went on a field trip with my class and Yell's class to CYO Camp, it was so fun!  I rode in a canoe and learned all about animals in the environment and such.  I am so happy!  I have to get my swim suit on for swim practice at 6, so, post you later!  And don't be a afraid to comment on anything!

Personal hygiene

Or a complete lack thereof.

If your desk looks like this, you need to give it a few minutes of attention.  I should NOT have to do it for you.  That is NOT in my job description.  You are an adult.  Please act like one!

(Honestly, if I have dry heaves after cleaning your workspace, there is a problem, and it isn't mine!)

Dear Amazon...we need to have a talk...

Once upon a time we received a package.

And the chicklets were happy!

And the package was huge!

Or was it?


You know, the item was surprisingly small.  Maybe we should have a talk about excessive packaging?

Because if a 65# 11-yr-old can fit in this box, I'd say the box was a little on the large side.
