…and so little time to write it!
Wish I had a direct connection from my brain to here. Oh, wait. No, that wouldn’t be good.
Oh, Dave and I got to see Amy Grant in concert last night! Not that Dave was thrilled with seeing it, but he did say he enjoyed it. I thought it was real good. She is so funny. I did not know that about her. A very good concert with good friends, and it was in an outdoor amphitheater on a beautiful evening. Good times.
Harrison missed baseball practice on Thursday and then the first game this morning (Saturday). He got sick on Wednesday. It started with a sore throat and then came the gunk and a cough. He JUST DID THIS. I am so sick of snot. Oh… and you know it… the little sweetie decided to share with his brothers… so now JJ has it! (He just did this too!) Now I am all over them with garlic, vitamin C, Vicks and my special potion (ya… not really mine… but we call it “mama’s potion”! Mostly just to scare the kids).
I am very bummed that Harrison missed his first game. It took a lot for me to send the email to his coach last night and tell him he wasn’t coming. But if he’s sick – he’s sick. What can I do? The coach was nice and said he understood, and also said that his son – who had the flu all week – would not be their either. No sense in having a relapse. This is true. I will get over it and there will be other games.
Our study on the American Revolution is supposed to end Friday, however, we are not done with our Living Book and are enjoying it very much. The boys asked if we could have another week of this study. I am considering it. It’s been a good study. The other night we made a ground beef type stew (with veggie meat) and then made “fire cakes” to dip in the stew/soup. Fire cakes are bread that the American Soldiers ate during the American Revolution. They are just flour and water (salt if they were lucky) and then cooked over-or in the fire. We cooked ours in the oven. They were fun to eat with our soup, but would get old if that were all we had to eat!
It may be a good thing that Harris couldn’t make his game today, as I have been sick with a migraine. They seem to be making me nauseous more now than they ever did. Eeeuuuwea. No fun. I did make a big pot of chicken noodle soup (with tons of garlic) this afternoon, but proceded to spill an entire bowl of it all over my lap and burn my legs. Idiot. I am going to go take a nap now. I’m just not right. (and no comment from you about that, Eddie.)
Chow all. Life will be back on track tomorrow I am sure.
