I've finally realized...

"Crazy" is my new normal. I always think it's crazy here and think to myself, "As soon as 'this thing' is over, things will quiet down." But as soon as 'that thing' is through, a new thing comes along. Today it came along in the form of 2 sick little ones: Ethan and Claire. Claire has come down with a bad cold/sinus infection or something; but Ethan is "sick" mostly because Claire is. He has had some problems with allergies, I think, recently though, so I have them both going to the doctor this morning. He can go back to school tomorrow, but I know I will keep Claire home at least another day...which will be kind of nice really. I miss the Old Days already!

Oh, and about the nun picture in my previous post...earlier this year I posted about Allison asking me if I had ever pretended to be a nun when I was a kid. Steven, my mom and I all about popped a gut over that one! rofl!!! My mom just happened to come across a picture of two nuns in the newspaper shortly after that, and took one of the nuns out and put me in! I still laugh every time I look at it, and I keep it on my desk. If you want to read the original post, here it is...http://lorilaurielauri.blogspot.com/2007/04/conversations-with-allison.html

Time to go get ready for the doctor...she might appreciate a shower.

I do kind of miss the old days when I was working and I would fake a sick and play hooky with Zoe and go see a movie.

Hope the gang gets well soon!

Left you a long, bizarre rambling message - but the cliff notes version is that I miss ya!

DEB! I have been thinking about y'all so much! And if the long, bizarre rambling message was on my cell...well...it doesn't work anymore, and I haven't gotten another one yet. I'll have to send you an email...
