For today, Wednesday, January 27, 2010 (yes one of those "better-late-than-never" weeks!!)
On My Mind...glad that Tucker is feeling better! He came home from school Thursday with a headache and sore throat and didn't even want to go to soccer practice (that's when we knew he was sick!) He went to my mom's on Fri and when I called the school to let them know he was sick, the secretary mentioned that strep is going around so I called the pediatrician and got him in Fri afternoon and sure enough, he has strep! He's been taking his medicine twice a day and is feeling much better. He did have a little set-back Sunday night when he threw up ALL OVER our bed at 2 AM so he went to my mom's again Monday but since then, he's been fine.
Outside My Window...it is dark of course. We've been enjoying temps in the mid to upper 40s but it's starting to go back down to normal and there's a possibility of snow tomorrow.
What We're Reading...I finished Emily of New Moon and am halfway through Emily Climbs. I got the first two books of the Twilight series for my birthday so I am looking forward to possibly reading them next. Tucker's favorites this week were: The Marshmallow Incident (by the author of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), Penguins Strange and Wonderful, and The Enormous Crocodile.
What We're Listening to...I just finished Three Junes by Julia Glass ion the way home today. I need to get to the library for another audio book, maybe Saturday.
What We're Watching...I'm watching/listening to The State of the Union as I type this...the usual: iCarly, Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters. Also following The Biggest Loser this time around-wasn't happy with last week's elimination but feel that Michael has semi-redeemed himself this week and VERY happy with the elimination this week...Also Tucker and I watched Shrek and Toy Story 2 when we were home Saturday. We also watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 (we have the DVDs from Seasons 1 & 2, which I find both comforting (because we are/were really fans of this show) and sad (because of how it all turned out).
I am hoping...to catch up on my sleep at some point!

In the Kitchen...we had ham steaks tonight...Michael will probably make french toast tomorrow (I'm working late)...and then Tucker's at my mother's until Sunday.
Around the House...laundry needs to be folded...the army battlefield is set up again down here in the family room...I can hear the dishwasher finishing up.
Coming Up This Week...soccer practice tomorrow...Tucker's going to my mom's Fri until Sun...we rescheduled my getting together with Joan because both she and Tucker were sick last week so getting together with Joan on Sat to celebrate Christmas and our birthdays...soccer game Sun afternoon.
Some Picture Thoughts...at my mom's celebrating my birthday, Cassandra, Michael, and Tucker checked out games on Cassandra's iPhone
Eileen, Doreen, and Cassandra got me the first two books of the Twilight series, which I have been wanting to read but wanted my own copies. Check out the silly faces on Tucker and Michael!
