Sick of cold

I'm sick of having a cold......

I'm sick of being cold.......

I'm sick of Macy having the eternal cold....

I'm sick of my kids one by one thinking they have a cold....

I'm sick of it being spring break and having a cold....

I'm sick of it being spring break and it BEING so cold (I know...I chose to live in Utah)

I'm sick.....

After the last few weeks of my life, I can't say I'm surprised that I'm sick. My mom and dad moved in for a stint after her knee replacement surgery. Wow! I always think I'm at the fullest capacity that I can be at, then the Lord finds a way to give me more, probably to humble me. I'm so glad she could recover here, but it was work to maintain 7 people (not counting me...I was not maintained). It had it's advantages, like someone to read stories and play games with kids, but my mom is normally such a busy lady, it was hard to keep her down!

Then Bill announced to me in the same sentence that he was basically gone for 2 weeks AND could we have his sister's wedding gathering (if I call it a reception, I'll freak) at our house?Hmmmmm.

Then he takes Quinn and Parker to Moab....great, yes, except he and the boys narrowly escaped death. Not his fault....dealership forgot to tighten lug nuts on FJ....yes, that is a big deal. Needless to say, I was shaking for a good 12 hours after the event.

Oh yes....I have 150 dance costumes to distribute out to my students and put on production for 1500 people. No pressure there.

It's a good thing I have a good sense of humor, diet coke, and good friends to complain to! And a half-eaten pan of brownies....

Wow. Seriously, not quite sure what else to say... I wish I could at least send some Cali sunshine your way. I'll try to bring it with me when we head to Utah on Thursday.

Is now a bad time to have the boss over for dinner?

Looks like you've had a fun filled month!! Hope the sickness goes away soon. Good luck with the non reception gathering! Dick and I just did one for his Granddaughter but only for 150 people. Plus you get Daughter of the Year award. Your mom is blessed to have you in her life.

And hang in there!! Your recitals are always perfect...if you can keep your sanity til then.

(Bill, you are always so dang funny!!)

Deep breaths, it's almost over. Just a few more weeks, and you are past a huge part of the craziness of your life.

You're amazing. And as long as you have diet coke and brownies, I know you'll be just fine!
