Well it's been several days since I last wrote. Tatie was sick and now Bailey was sick, so I just haven't sat down to think of blog posts all week.
And even now, with having the time right now while Kevin is out and I catch up on DVR'd shows, I just can't think of anything to say. I'm pretty tired I guess. Last night Bailey had a very high fever and long story short (long story including a 911 call, a visit from a cop, 2am run to CVS and making her noodles - which she didn't eat) I am sleep deprived. The whole week I haven't slept well, it takes me back to my baby days. Thankfully, my girls are great sleepers so normally, I get a good 7-8 hrs a night of uninterrupted sleep...so to have a handful of 4-5 hr nights is not good for me.
But I'll tell you what is good for me. This weather. It's my favorite - not too hot, not too cold. Breezy. Sunny. Fabulous.
Tomorrow, Friday, I am really hoping Bailey is almost to normal and we can enjoy the day. I love taking the girls to parks and watching them play together. I will say, this week they were really good sisters to each other. When one is sick, the other one - usually, for at least a while - feels badly and is nicer. They call each other "honey" and "sweetie" and give up some of their lovies or prized Barbies to borrow. This kind of sister-love has a shelf life, but I take what I can get.
What I am watching right now is Jamie Oliver's 'Food Revolution' and I really like it. But I have a question - why can't some more parents or kids just make their lunches? Kids don't have to buy the lunches right? Now, that is a very broad kind of comment - a lot of low income families rely on meal plans at schools to give their kids lunch. I get that, totally. But a lot of OTHER families who pay for lunch, if the school serves crap can't they make their lunch instead? I think it takes 3 minutes, no kidding. I understand that my kids are still young enough they eat what I tell them (unless that's veggies, to which they say hell no - not really but you get what I mean), it's not like they have free reign yet with their own wallet in high school to make their own choices. Bailey wants to fit in - and I understand that too - and so on Fridays, pizza day, I let her buy lunch and milk. I figure that's a happy medium of control :)
Next up on the DVR is Mike and Molly, I love the actress in that. She has a really good laugh. Don't you love people who have a really good laugh?
Until tomorrow, with Sales Saturday.
