Let's see - how should I describe my day? Hectic. Yes, definitely hectic. My Mom is doing ok - not feeling to well. She had a slight fever yesterday so she was staying close to home. I can't go up to visit her until she (and Olivia) is better. Olivia is still sounding pretty gross. I am having a hard time determining whether her lungs are congested or if it's all from the post nasal drip. She sounds just awful - the poor kid. I didn't go to Target today. I didn't think she would be comfortable in the car and she has a habit of coughing (sometimes hard enough to make her gag) and then throwing up. Yuck. I don't like cleaning barf. We went to Walmart (again!) and I picked up some really cute gifts for my Bonkos group. It is my turn to host it on Monday night. I don't have the room to have 12 women at my house so my neighbor Tracy graciously volunteered her house. I just have to provide the food. I was going to make an apple pie and perhaps banana bread or pumpkin bread. I was also going to have fresh veggies and dip. Maybe some fruit too.. I am trying to stick with a fall theme and I am just doing appetizers and desserts. ANY suggestions?? I am looking for quick and easy recipes!
Friday Five! 1. What are your favorite ways to relax and unwind? Either reading or sitting at the computer. 2. What do you do the moment you get home from work/school/errands? Kick off my shoes 3. What are your favorite aromatherapeutic smells? Vanilla or Mandarin Orange 4. Do you feel more relaxed with a group of friends or hanging out by yourself? Tough one - depends on my mood. 5. What is something that you feel is relaxing but most people don't? I like to roll change. Weird, huh?
Morning everyone! I am feeling a little bit better. Olivia is still pretty oogy.. she's got a pretty gross sounding cough, now with a slight whistle to it. She got another neb treatment with Pulmicort and Albuterol. Oh - bonus - she also has a fever. Poor damn kid. She got some ibuprofen too. She is mooning over her breakfast but she is drinking. She only wants the clear orange flavored Gatorade. Ick. Mom had her MRI yesterday but I haven't talked to her since yesterday morning. I'll give her a call soon. Paul is off today - thank goodness. I have a bunch of errands to do, including picking up party prizes for the Bonkos game I will be hosting on Monday. Target here I come!
