Feeling Dazed…Because I lost An Hour & My Ten Things of Thankful

It is 8:55 pm, I am working on my Ten Things of Thankful right now…let’s see how long this will take me from now to publish …ahem – without any distractions.

First off let me begin with, it’s been that kind of weekend where nothing was urgent and I am ignoring any schedule.  Which I must add or elaborate that the Daylight Savings time isn’t helping this mindset either, that lost hour has put me in a daze … well, almost a daze.  I did get some things done and tended to a sick child….

The call came on Friday afternoon; Nick was home he called me at work to tell me that the school nurse called because Amelia has a fever – he was on his way to go get her, he continued to say that he will bring her home and give her Motrin for the fever, or should he give a cold medicine.

I said if she has a fever, she should go to the doctor or Urgent Care – he took her to the doctor and it was determined she had the Flu ----Yuck!

Miss Amelia – on a better day

My Thankfuls…
First – Nick was home; although I would have left the office to go to her, I was glad that I did not have to.   

Second - Doctor was in to see her and prescribed medication right away

Third - Tamiflu - do I need to say more - she seems fine today no fever all day!

Fourth - new Apps on our phones that make pictures look like the one above and this one….

James dressed for a Mock Trial for Social Studies.

Fifth - I got me a pair of Cowgirl Boots…
Here they are

Six - A week of good eats –

Fettucine with a Walnut Sauce

Pancakes on National Pancake day – Teddy wants some too…The pile in the middle I call scribbles last bit of the batter scribbled along the griddle.

What a sick child wants for dinner…Orzo pasta with butter and cheese and ginger ale – of course, she didn’t eat the whole thing, but enough so that the Tamiflu wouldn’t upset her stomach.

What the rest of us ate - homemade Sloppy Joes on Pretzel Rolls-

Six – Although I am sad that it was the final episode for Downton Abby, I was quite pleased how it ended, a truly happy ending – Bravo!  It put me in a good mood at the start of the week.

Seven - we are ok - do not read into this, it a simple statement that really should be included every week, something I need to remind myself always.   Lately, I am feeling our own (everyone) fragility on a hypersensitive level.  

Eight – A new App for the computer that helps… it’s neat however, I am only using the free version.

Nine -  I am having my family over on Easter Sunday -  my mom is making  Lasagna,  dad is bringing artichoke, my sister is doing  an appetizer, Mimi (my sister’s mother-in-law)  will be making desserts….I’m making the rest a roast of some kind ( not sure what it will be yet ) veggie sides, and a salad – I make great salads. Looking forward to having everyone over.

Ten -    Them –

 Because Amelia was wondering, what was that song about the boots… here is what she asked for.

Have a wonderful week…


  1. I'm glad your daughter is feeling better. I haven't had experience with Tamiflu, but it sounds like it is really a wonder drug!

    1. the Tamiflu really worked - i think it was we caught in time too

  2. Or am I frist? Oh, well, I'm sorry poor Amelia had the flu! My kids had swine flu six years ago and it was horrible until the tamiflu kicked in.
    I need to come to your house so you can cook for me. I don't even like pancakes, and those look good to me!
    CUTE boots!
    Which app did you use to do the pictures?

    1. next time for sure - tamiflu really worked - so expensive though at least my almost covered it - i say that because i feel bad that not everyone can get it.... i will feed you any time thank you and thank you the boots was a gift to me --- i woke up one morning and said i need me a pair of cowgirl boots and not just plan ones ...
      the app is called sketch camera...there are several kind but all do the same. :)

  3. Our Tamiflu was for swine flu, too! And six years ago, yes. Did my other comment post?

  4. My other comment disappeared. I said glad the Tamiflu worked. We had to get it for our daughter when she was just one year old. Horrible scary night.
    The boots are cuuuute! And the Nancy Sinatra vid is one of my favorites.
    Walnut sauce is yum! I put it on tagliatelle because fancy! 😃
    Have a great week!

    1. don't you hate it when computer goblins hide things -well i don't hate but it confuses me a lot thanks love my boots - walnut sauce was good i also use tagliatelle but truthfully i did not want to spend almost 5 bucks for a pack at my supermarket so opted for fettuccine it was good too - farfalle would have been nice too. next time tagliatelle for sure.

  5. Aw, poor little one, getting the flu. Not nice at all. Glad the fever is under control though.
    Sounds like a lot of delicious foods and family fun for the upcoming Easter celebration.
    My parents love that show and were sad to see the final episode. I keep meaning to check it out and will eventually. Better late than never.

    1. Amelia is better and back to school now hubby has it. i am looking forward to Easter. yes you must check out Downton Abbey. :)

  6. I like your cowboy boots better than nancy's go go boots. although I had a pair of those!
    can I come to your house and just stay and EAT? ohmygosh.
    why does everything you make sound SO GOOD!
    and teddy's little face peering up at those pancakes.
    now I want pancakes REALLY bad.
    I love it when you share pictures of nick and the kids.
    this was just a wonderful post all the way round.
    except no picture of marisa! THEN it would have been perfect.
    and downton abbey. couldn't have ended better. I miss it already.

    1. thank you ..thank you yes you can come over...Teddy wee king of my family... thank you i will try to get into the pictures loved the last one and final episode - I too miss it - Mr Selfridge will start soon.


Now its your turn, let it all out it feels good .....tell me how you feel! Love to hear from you, I love comments ...they are the best part!
