Speedy Weekend

The weekend went by so fast, it actually made my head spin. Scary! So now I sit here in front of my computer between carpool jaunts trying to remember where it all went. Hmmm… all I can think of is having a big homestyle fish fry on Friday, taking CG to her private cello lesson with CS in tow due to hubs working the weekend at the Corps office, generating a web proposal for a new client, working out like a mad woman on the elliptical, visiting Barnes & Noble in support of ‘School Day’, and finally laundry, laundry, laundry. So that’s where the weekend went.

And now it’s Monday all over again. I’m sensing a pattern here.

Time Flies, Fun or Not

Holy blogs, people! Has it really been since February 20th, 2009, that I last posted here? Um, yeah. Looks that way. Well, I’ve got a seriously good excuse for that, and it’s called:

I finally kicked the sinusitus/cold bug, passed it on to the youngest son, recovered for a week, and then found out said child contracted the Influenza Type A virus from a fellow classmate who had been diagnosed the previous day. Catholic Son even helped disinfect the classroom, only to be stricken down with the exact same germs he was attempting to eliminate from the room. Craziness! Poor guy…*sniff*”

It’s times like these that force a parent to remember why not only adults but children ALSO should receive the flu vaccine every single year, even if they whine and moan about not wanting another painful shot in the arm. Because who’s in charge of the kid’s health anyway? And who will be forced to stay home and put all work aside to play doctor and/or nurse? That’s right – Mom. (Or Dad, whatever the case may be.) Which amounts to lost income, used sick leave, and the added stress of the whole dratted event.

I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather be blogging and doing fun stuff.
