I wouldn't spill the coffee...

I am not usually up this early on a Sunday.

However, this morning, here I sit, awake, and on coffee cup number 2!

Why? 

I guess it is any number of reasons.  Hammer got up at 7am and I checked on him, as I normally would do.  He is much better today, thank goodness.

I headed back to bed.  I hacked and coughed.  And, didn't want to wake Pumpkin, who slept with me while Daddy and Fuzzy were away.

So, here I sit.  Now, Pumpkin is up anyhow, still coughing like Hammer, but better.  It seems the fever part has passed.

I got to bed early last night, around midnight after watching 'Snakes on a Plane' on pay per view.  It was a typical action flick with a happy ending, but it was just the mind numbing entertainment that I needed.

Libby had her usual moment of psychotic barking that brought my Dad downstairs to calm her around 10:30pm last night. 

Thankfully, my Mom avoided any doorbell ringing. :-D

                                     

Earlier in the evening, Hubby came home, ate McDonald's with us sickies, then jumped in the shower, and ran with Pumpkin over to her Valentine dance. 

This year Pumpkin actually graced him with 3 or 4 dances before she ditched him for her friends!  lol

Yes, even though Typhoid Pumpkin is still coughing, I sent her to the dance.  Hey, she got the germs she brought home from one of those little trolls at school, and she didn't have a fever since Thursday evening.  Fair enough, right?  lol

Hubby informed me that Fuzzy is sick, too.  No fever, but does have the cough and cold part.  Fuzzy didn't want to come home from camp though, so right after the dance, Hubby headed back up!

He emailed me when he reached the cabin... everyone was sleeping!  All the boys and all the leaders.  It was 10:45pm.

I imagine that Hubby settled into sleep pretty quick since he had a busy few hours driving in, going to the dance, and driving back.

Fuzzy and Hubby should arrive home around 10am-ish.  I miss them and can't wait to give them big hugs. 

We will all have breakfast together, and then I think I will be ready to nap!  I may be back later with a little questionnaire I found surfing the net last night.

be well,
Dawn

Your poor family just keeps passing those bugs around.  LOL...I wouldn't hesitate a second to pass the germs back to the other kids.  Hope you're feeling better yourself.  I know you enjoyed that breakfast of yours.  HUGS  Chris

You make J-Lander number 4 (including me) who ate McD's on Sunday.  Are they using subliminals in their commercials now???  Rest and feel better.

I hope the plague leaves your house soon!  Why is it that everyone gets sick at once and then we just recycle the germs!  Maybe you should go to the hospital and get some of those surgical masks!  Wear them all the time! Should make for an interesting xmas card this year!  hee hee

Hope everyone feels better over there!!!  I love coffee number 2 and 3 and 4..... I can't wait to be done with this blasted unpacking so I can watch tv too and we can talk about it in my entries... Gosh I am having major withdrawals because we decided not to hook up cable.  I think that was really a bad decision.  LOL.  So awesome about the dance for Pumpkin.  Hugs,
Lisa
