Not all is lost

Guess what?!?! No, really...guess! I will give you a minute.

Okay, you have your guesses ready?!?

If you guessed that my quiet time of all the kids going back to school was OVER practically before it even began... then you are right-a-mundo!

I got a call from the elementary school yesterday afternoon at 1:47 pm. My daughter was in the nurses office sick. YES S-I-C-K. ONE half day after being home for 10 DAYS of healthy living!!!!!!!!!!

Dear God, It's Me Onthegomom. Are you there??? Because I'm not feeling it.

So, my dear 10 year old is home with me today. She is sick. She has a fever, stuffy nose and a headache.

Lucky, lucky me.

On the up side, my 14 year old son is in the midst of a growth spurt. He has slept the past 2 days (except he is going to school). Last week he ate me out of house and home, so I knew this week he would sleep non-stop and barely eat, that is his growth spurt pattern. I know this, because he did it in January and grew 1 3/4 inches in 3 weeks. (NO LIE). So while he is going to school, when he is home he is asleep, all evening and all night. I love this stage!!!!!!!!

No news about the 18 year old, he does his own thing. This whole "I'm an adult thing" has worked quite well. He checks in with me, he pays for most of his own stuff, he goes to work when he is suppose to. It's great. Now, if I could get his friends out of my house it would be perfect.... well they are out now because they are all back in school, it's just the weekends and breaks.

But the cat is being good and I am loving him more and more each day :-)

HA! Isn't that how life always works? My daughter has been so sick and is getting better just in time for her spring break next week.
Hope your little girl is feeling better soon!

What a bummer.. (I love the part about, are you there god? it's me onthegomom.. It had me cracking up.) Too funny.. I hope she feels better soon.. Of course as soon as she starts feeling better, someone else will get it, and in the end, you will get it, but none of them will have any sympathy for you.. lol..

I blame the sickness on Murphy's law. I blame him for a lot of things. :) Hope things get healthy at your house quick!!

UGH, I don't look forward to my son growing that fast...:(
