Duty Calls

This is day two of the 3-year-old's flu. I probably don't need to say anymore about that for you to have a full image in your mind of what is going on here. Mountains of barfy laundry. A whimpering, impish patient. And not much time for anything else. Luckily we did get a pretty good night's sleep. And the barf frequency has greatly dropped from about once every 1/2 hour to only once so far this morning. I'm tentatively crossing fingers that we are on the upswing and NOT headed for the doctor's office.

Today is Track Tuesday. We have 800's scheduled. There are horrendous winds outside today. Ugh. We may have up to 50 mph gusts by track time. WTF? Not only do I have to suffer through 800's but in my "favorite" weather condition, cold wind. The upside is that this is supposed to go away after tomorrow and we'll have HOT weather up through the weekend at least. Finally! I've been finding too many excuses to hide out inside.

And there is sad news in blogland - Marcy has announced her retirement from blogging....say it isn't so!

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear about the kiddo. That stuff is never fun but on the bright side there usually is a lot of sleeping that goes along with sickness. So maybe you'll catch a break from the usual madness of the house?!?

Awwwwhhh it's really not that sad, it's time to par-tay! Everyone's trashiest nightmare will be gone LOL

Nooooo! We love your site because it is a trashy nightmare! Damn.

You have to promise me that you'll keep writing in some form because you are really good.

And you're right about the sleeping that goes with the sickness...that's the upside.
