Manic Monday


Frankie is not feeling well today. I got up at 7, went back to bed at 7:30, woke up at 10:45. Thomas was reading a book in my bed, but I felt awful I let him down. I'm glad he let me sleep, though. My husband came home for lunch and I told him I just don't feel well enough to do school and he said to make this a Fun Monday and do school on our typical Fun Friday. Perfect solution!

Thomas is working on art, I'm sipping coffee and on the net wishing I had a drip IV of Motrin -- or something stronger.

Speaking of Thomas and art, he had an artistic weekend. He prepared his cake for his last Scouts Blue and Gold banquet. He worked on it Saturday night and Sunday morning. I am a little upset with myself because I didn't take a final picture. What you cannot see is the jello lake. Thomas scooped a portion of the cake out, and we made blue jello and poured it in. Stuck the entire cake in the fridge so it could gel, and he had his beautiful blue lake.

The banquet was yesterday afternoon and it was quite fun. Thomas got lots of blue ribbons for his cake. We're about done with scouts, we have our cross over and an ice skating event left. Counting the days...

I think I shall now go back to bed.

Hope you feel better soon too. A motrin drip sounds good to me too.

B&G cakes are the best.

Hope you are feeling better by now. At least Thomas was a good sport. I dread the thought of being sick with my 3 year old. Your description of the lake on the cake was just as good as a picture. You've captured it for him in words.

Sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather. I had that lingering all last week. The best thing is to rest and recover. Glad hubby stepped in with the quick thinking ot save the day. Enjoy the end of scouts...
