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
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…
