Day 5 and still not feeling that great. I think I was re-infected by the kids when they were infected by me. Right now I’m feeling better than I did this morning – probably because of this weird drink my friend Livvie told me to drink. It was 5 smashed garlic cloves, lemon juice and water. I brought it all to a boil, poured the water into a cup and added honey and a ton of cayenne pepper. Bottoms up! It wasn’t as bad as it sounds, actually! And my cough finally seems to be tapering! I also have some restorative tunes to give to credit to. Guster’s new album came out 10 DAYS ago! How the heck did I forget about it?! So I’m listening to it right now – Guster always makes a person feel better! Love the Guster! Oh and lets not forget about the Almond Butter Cups that always make me feel super. Love those too!
In other news, we must bid farewell to an old friend. I’ve been given crap in recent years for my green winter coat. Last year I was told I better get rid of it before other hockey mom’s start calling me Shrek. I’ve worn this coat since 2005 I think. Its been with me thru my single days, my preggo days and has brought me to here. Its a great coat! Only problem is yes, I’ve had it a LONG time and people are sick of it. Also, its permanently dirty from brushing up against the car, etc. It was time I moved on. We ARE going to miss each other though. Don’t worry, I wont be doing anything DRASTIC like getting rid of it. We have such a tight bond! That would be just WRONG.
So, let me introduce you to my new coat! I dare you to come up with a nickname they could call me now, Lulu! These pics are the best I could do. I wore my hat so my hair didn’t scare you all. I’m sick, ya know! Like I really do my hair when I’m sick! Or um, if I’m not leaving the house.
Today’s snack ROCKED. I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff. It is SO good. Especially when you heat it up and its all warm and melty. Mmmmmmm Avos had her apple sans almond butter. She prefers to stay clean. Her hair may be messy, but her clothes must be clean. At least that I can control, right?
Well there is a rousing game of hide and seek going on. Dylan is hiding, so I spoze I should quit “pretending” to seek!
