3rd Illness Of The Year

We made it through the pink eye fun from last week with only 1 case of the nasty infection, but don't worry we've redeemed ourselves with one hell of a cold. Hubby was sick over the weekend, hacking up lung cheese and complaining. There's nothing worse than a man with a cold. You'd think the world was coming to an end. "Honey, I don't feel well, can you get me something to drink? Do I have a fever? I can't get off the sofa, I'm sick." Oh yeah lots of fun, and for extra credit I had the privilege of washing 37 hankies, because why use a Kleenex that can be discarded mucous, germs and all when we have perfectly good hankies to use, then shove back into our pockets and reuse until completely saturated with illness?
Surprise, surprise now the rest of us have this pesky cold. Mae was home sick yesterday and I kept Binny home today only because I don't think she would keep on top of her drippy nose at school. She isn't running a fever, but not up to snuff either. This morning I started to feel a roughness in my throat and that woozy head cold feeling, but I'm the mom and we all know that moms don't get sick days (I need a better contract). At least hubby is starting to feel better and I can now tend to the real children.

And now totally unrelated: This was the sunset here last night.

The summer sunsets are only better because I don't have to put on my boots to go outside and enjoy it.

Beautiful pics!

And yes, isn't funny how when WE have a cold, we're still asked 'what's for dinner'. And when THEY have a cold, they're all like 'dying'. lol
