My how times does fly...

I can't believe it has been a week since I last was here. I was starting to notice a trend. Thursday's were wiping me out. But last Thursday was the Queen of all Thursdays. I was a BIG CRANKY MOM. So cranky that Danny offered to take us out for Mexican food for dinner. My whole family gazed with mouths wide open as I ordered the LARGE Margarita. (for those that know me, I don't drink often, and when I do have a drink, it is usually a small glass of wine or a small beer) It was a REAL good drink. I mellowed out a bit. Okay, okay, a LOT.


Friday, I was still tired, so I didn't worry about the daily journal project. Saturday was the day I would make it all up. Well, Morgan got strep, AND was throwing up. Poor baby. I couldn't really concentrate on anything. My baby was sick and I was powerless to make her better. I couldn't get anything to stay in her little tummy. I was worried she would dehydrate. She is a twig. On a fat day. She didn't keep anything down on Saturday, and her poor little throat was so sore on Sunday, she didn't eat anything. I stayed home with her on Monday. Good thing too. She was one HUNGRY little girl. She wanted melon. So I got her melon. She ate the whole thing. She wanted Ramen noodles. She ate the whole thing. She wanted Oreos. No, I didn't let her eat the whole thing. But she would have if I had let her. She had three servings at dinner. And dark circles under her eyes. But she was back to her fun loving beautiful little self. I love her so much. Tuesday morning found her full of energy and raring to get to school. All of my freaky kids love going to school. Megan, I think is for the social aspect. Morgan loves learning. And I think Melissa just loves going somewhere.


So, here it is Wednesday. AND I am pooped. My project has taken a back seat. Oh who am I kidding, it is in the trunk. I will pull it out this weekend and catch up. I have to. I want to.


I just hope Melissa and Megan stay healthy.....


Here's a pretty little kitty to make you smile. Halloween is coming soon. And the girls are bugging me to have another Halloween party. They really had fun last year. I am going to give in and let them have one. Gotta make those invites this weekend. I will probably use this kitty. She's cute.

Well selfishly as your friend, I have missed you - but I'm delighted that Morgan is getting back to fighting strength. Sigh, I guess I can't guilt you into daily entries until you feel like it. SIGH SIGH SIGH

As for margaritas, I believe that is something we have in common. And I'll leave it at that!

Oh, and NOTE TO WORLD - evan at her worst, she is NOT a big cranky Mom. She's like sweetiepie mommy. It's absolutely disgusting but you have to love her for it because she's so darn good at it.
