Tales from the Trenches: Hubs has a cold, K- has homework and I put up a Christmas tree today.

Hubs?  99.8 F fever.  He called me at work to tell me.  I'm happy to report that he will live. 

Yes, he remembered to get K- from school.

K-?  She has homework.  She's floating in the tub right now, then it is flash cards, spelling test and reading.  Whew-boy! 

She's excited because she got one part of her walk-a-thon prizes today.  They ended up getting a double lunch and double recess.  Now to me that seems a little excessive on the food front.  When K- saw me in the hall, she told me about her upcoming pizza adventure. I reminded her to wash her hands and to be mindful of her fill line.  (Pizza and reflux don't go well together when eaten quickly.)  She was thrilled with the extra recess.  That's more my speed.  I would have loved a triple recess, but alas . . . 

Me?  I put the first Christmas tree of the season up at work today.  I did that while pulling myself out of the remnants of a migraine (didn't go full blown as I was on it with lots of things.)  Still, I suffered from migraine hang over and that made me move slower.  I did get done what I needed to get done and so I'm still on track.

I'll be sleeping on the couch tonight to stay away from the petri dish that I love to call Hubs.  When one is sick, we usually separate in attempt to avoid the plague.  We've done this all our married life.  No use in two losing sleep when one losing it is bad enough.  And yes, I come in through the night and check on him just as I would K-.

Smiles in my day:
-  Leaving the windows open all night, though that could have been cause for the migraine.
-  That K- took the initiative to work on her homework before I got home.  Hubs checked it and it is all good. 
-  Flat [Stanley] is off through the mail system and to [her] next place.  I was so afraid she would be lost or misplaced.  It made me nervous!

Have a great day!

First off, we would LOVE to help out on the Flat [Stanley] project, if you're interested. :o)

Second, so sorry Hubs is ill. My in-laws do the separate thing as well. I get it.

Hooray for fun times for K, although I concur with the double lunch. Ugh.

Christmas? Already?? But it's not even Halloween yet... Et tu, Amy? :oP

The Flat [Stanley] would have come your way. Believe me, I thought about it! However, my sister-in-law runs such a tight ship that she wants it to go only to those on the list and lickety split. What can I say, I followed directions, but believe me, I thought of sending it to you guys!

Hey, the Christmas thing? When you have one person who works 3 days a week and has 7 trees and multiple ceilings to set, you have to do what you have to do. I've started my season of twinkle.

Well it's a shame about the "Flat" project, what with us living in such a fantabulous historical area and all...oh well.

The Christmas thing? I figured that's what it was, but I had to gig you just a little anyhow. :oP

I'm with you. Wanted you on project "Flat." If K- does one, you'll be on our list! I've been to your historic places, but K- never has been. One day we'll have to spin by your neck o' the historic woods.
