I might be a hypochondriac

I woke up one time last night and my face felt warm so I decided I probably had fever. Never mind the fact that everyone is warm when they are tucked under a down filled comforter. I awoke again and had my leg outside the covers, decided that this was strange and it must be because I have fever. I went back to sleep and was having very strange dreams and felt like things were going in fast motion, so once again...I was convinced that when it was time to get up in the morning, I would be feeling terrible and running a fever. Geez. Even though my throat was a little sore, I woke up feeling fine.

We are sickly.

We've had sickness running through our home for the last two weeks and it doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon. Ray came down with something last night and that something had better not inflict me. I'm still dealing with plugged ears and a bit of sore throat. Caitlin, who became sick over the weekend and who also played two high school games with a fever and chills, has showed no signs of getting back to her old self yet... but maybe by tomorrow. I'm just hoping the rest of us won't be recontaminated with something new. I've been spraying Lysol and cleaning fixtures with Clorox wipes just trying to minimize the germs. I'm afraid that we are losing the battle. Send help.

Back from Phoenix

And I'm still a little under the weather from my cold last week, but happy to have that trip over with. Our team did not do well and the fields conditions are to blame, for part of it. Dirt and rock do not make a good pitch. The competition was good but the tournament was poorly ran. We made it home at 1:00 this morning due to flight delays so needless to say, we are pooped. Caitlin has soccer almost everyday for the rest of this week so we will be quite busy. I have videos to upload and then I'll add one or two of them here later.

Hot and Crispy

I cook almost everything, that comes frozen packaged, in the oven at 450 degrees and for 20 minutes. As if the directions on all the packages are wrong and I know better. But I like what I like and I like my food to be crispy. Nothing worse than a limp chicken tender. Even my kids know when they turn on the oven that there is only one temperature setting that matters..."Hot".

Untimely sickness

Today is Cody's birthday and he's been unable to go to school since yesterday due to a fever. So it's not going to be the best birthday that a 9 year old boy could have, but we are sure going to try. Happy Birthday, Cody!

Looking Ahead and Behind

My days at work have gone by quickly and it helped that we were busy. Both days I had work that I wasn't able to finish, so that is what I'll do today.

Caitlin and I are looking forward to Phoenix. New places to shop! Whoop..whoop!! Lots to look forward to. One of the girls on our team and who also goes to school with Caitlin is needing a room to stay in so we have offered our room. I'm not sure if her mom will accept because I think she's a little put out with me for making a big fuss about people paying their own way. (I'll always remember that day with fondness... I had the best time:-) This was way back when we had a different player and her mom had no qualms about taking advantage of the families on our team. Anyway, this mom of this friend of Caitlin's got caught in the crossfire because she had to ask for help a time or two. She always paid her own way but she still took the ordeal personal. Whatever! But I do like her daughter, she's very nice. And I hope she stays with us.

If I had it to do that whole thing over again... I'd do the same thing. Things have changed for the better on our team.

Here's a new video. It's a bore but I'm still trying out this video thing. This one is of our dog and cat playing. Brandy & Mojo

Surfin' this and that

Leslie and I weren't the only straight women enjoying a "girls" day out yesterday. No, there were others and all of them to see the same movie. Sunday is a good time to go so that you avoid the teenage madness that takes place during the weekend. Anyway, the movie was very good and no sad parts; just a fun movie to see.

I actually kept my eye on the Superbowl once I got home. I'm happy about the outcome. I never watch football but I was able to spot which team I wanted to win after a few minutes of checking out the teams. One little thing like hearing that one of the players is from Midland is enough to sway me the other way. It made it interesting for me.

I also got caught up on Beauty and the Geek and watched reruns of Monk. I had a bit of a headache so I wasn't very productive. Just laid around and surfed through the tv stations.

Ill be ready to take on the week as soon as I finish surfing the internet and finishing off my first fix for the day... diet pop. It'll be cappucino later, then diet pop again. The cycle continues.

It's been a good day.

After Caitlin's practice, we went shopping for Cody's birthday. The traffic was bad but we finished and headed home. Now I'm trying to get some things checked off my "to do" list. I think Leslie and I are going to see a movie tomorrow. It's a chick flick and hopefully it will be worth the time.

I had a good time at Caitlin's practice, visiting with a few of the parents. Two of the moms that were there, I enjoy being around the most. I really like them both and they were pretty funny as usual. I enjoyed seeing them again.
