It’s Been More Than a Week. How Have You Been?

Me? I have been sick.

Two weeks ago, my guy and I were off so I took him to a playgroup. When we arrived he saw a mass of children and tons of toys. His whole face lit up and he said ‘Mommy, I go?’ With my permission, he dashed into the fray and played with giant soccer balls, walked on top of turned over buckets, talked on a cellphone, moved a bus and played with various other pieces of equipment.

Several days later, I remembered why I usually avoid those types of places. My guy picked up a new bug complete with a hacking cough, of which he shared with me. I got a killer sore throat Thursday and Friday, hit with a cold Friday mid-morning and have also been hacking every since.

Last night, for the first time in almost a week, I slept more than a hour at a time. Good news.

Happy Birthday


Today is our kitten’s first birthday. Cosmo received three new toys and will receive a tag with his name and address on it. My guy wants to celebrate this evening with cake, candles and ice cream – for him, not that cat.



Boo to snow
I hear there is snow in Sunday’s forecast. In my heart I knew winter wasn’t finished with us yet but I am still sad. However, the warmer weather and the burst of colour popping through my garden makes me believe winter’s return will be short lived.

Happy Thursday, everyone.

Oooh, we got tons of snow last night. Boo.

Those playgroups, I hated those playgroups. I liked them because they were a fun outing, but always we were getting something buggy from them.

Happy b-day, kitty!

I hope you feel better soon! I can't believe Cosmo is a year already. Wow! Happy Birthday, Cosmo. I agree with the little man about the cake and ice cream!

Cheers :-)

Yuck to the yucky germs. I am glad you and your little guy are feeling better.

The never ending sickness stinks. I have sanitizer on me at all times, but even then it doesn't always help.

happy birthday to your kitty!

I hope by now you're feeling tip-top. I shun indoor playgroups too. My kids always get something from them, and they always pass it on to me.
