Entertain me


Where is everyone? All of my online haunts were people-free this evening. Maybe everyone was glued to their television sets, watching the President's news conference. Ya think? I'm waiting for the liberal news media to hammer him for not apologizing for 9/11. You know it's coming.

Also, whoever picked out and/or approved that tie should be fired.

Another too-busy day. Took DD to school, got my blood drawn for the celiac test, took DS2 to story time (he actually did 2 songs! amazing!). Picked DD up from school, picked up BK for lunch for them, went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. They behaved themselves remarkably. Finally got home well after 1:30, having left the house around 9. That is a long day for a 3-year-old.

So we were slugs until it was time to get DS1 from school. Picked him up and then helped him with his homework, then it was time for his basketball practice (DH's domain), then they came back and it was time for us all to go out to the Peter Piper Pizza where they do the sports photos. DH's entire basketball team showed up. Of DD's cheer squad, only 4 girls showed up --the squad leader forgot! One of the women had her phone number with her and called her, and she said she was on her way. We all hung around for an hour before giving up. We did get individual photos taken of the girls, though. We'll see about re-scheduling the team photo tomorrow at practice. I forgot to bring DD's pompoms but we were able to borrow another girl's for the picture. She looks very cute but very skinny in her outfit. Of course that's because she is very skinny.

Max reminded me that if I test positive for celiac I need to have the kids tested, too. It would not surprise me at all to find that DD has something like that going on. She never seems to gain any weight, although she is growing, height-wise. Maybe that's just the way she is. But I swear her head hasn't grown at all in the past 2 years. Maybe she'll just have a small head, proportionately. Teeny tiny girl.

Came home, watched the TiVO'd President and a bunch of commentary. Makes me want to throw things at the TV screen. Grrrrr.

I'm coming down with a cold. I had a brutal sinus headache today and now my nose is simultaneously stuffed and drippy. I wish DH had given me more warning about his impending cold last week, because I might not have been so willing to mack. The last thing I need right now is a cold. I don't get them often but when I do, they seem to hang on forever. Well, with this journal now I will be able to keep track. Today is officially Day 1, because yesterday I didn't have an inkling.

Of course, it may not be a cold at all, just the after-effects of staying up until 2:30 this morning. Moron!

Finally got my e-mails from my latest column over at LCL. Yay! Another half-dozen or so, with some good content-generating questions. I need to get them another column for May, I think I'll send over "The Tyranny of Food"... it's a good one. Maybe I want to save that for my syndication packet. Have to think that one over.

Tomorrow... usual school pickups, maybe one or two errands, and DD's cheer practice in the evening. I hope I feel better than I do now, but it's not a realistic hope, I fear. DD has this cold, too. So far, the boys have been spared. We'll see how long that lasts...

Odd day today. Not good, not bad, really, just busy busy.
Eh. I need some sleep.
