I'm of the opinion that they ought to put him in the hospital, sedate him, and give him fluids and antibiotics intravenously. But what do I know. I'm just the wife. And you know about men and doctors. Although, this week, it seems the hubby has had his doctor on speed dial!

I know. Don't let word get around. And for goodness sake, Christianne, don't tell the pigeons! But he truly is correct. I've been working harder at staying on top of the cleaning around the house. And it truly is so much easier to clean a little bit every day, or a little more every week than it is to do it all in one big shot if someone is coming over.
So far today I haven't done a whole lot, but the housework is almost done. I still need to do the bathrooms and the kitchen floor, but that pretty much covers it.
So, you heard it here first. I'll admit that he was right.
In other news, the munchkin and I will be heading to a Halloween party on Tuesday night. We're going as a pizza. I painted it this afternoon. I'll cut a slice out of it and munchkin will wear it. I'll wear the rest. Should be a good time. There's a bunch of other people from work going to be there and some of them are bringing their kids. So the munchkin should have a good time too. We won't be there long. It doesn't start until 7 and the munchkin needs to be in bed by 8.
I am working furiously on the hubby's afghan. It needs at least another foot to be finished. Possibly two. But I keep working on it.
Tomorrow Teri comes back. And boy am I glad! I've missed her a lot and it will be good to have my normal tech writer life back.

Except no red. The red really doesn't match my complexion. But I am so excited. I'll be donating the hair I cut off to Locks of Love. Check it out. http://www.locksoflove.org/ Everytime I get crazy and chop it all off, I donate it. It's just something that makes me feel good. There are very few selfless things that I can do in this world. Consider donating your hair or money. It's worth it.

Munchkin's as happy as can be. Hubby gave her an empty 2-Liter pop bottle. She thinks that's great. Plus, she's just as cute as can be.

Several delightful things happened. Some people ended up with chains ten feet long, other with chains a yard long. Some were really tight, and some were dangerously loose. Some combined both extremes into one chain.
On person is making a pot holder, three people are working on scarves, and everyone else is just learning the basics.
Because we're a bunch of women, talk turned to childhood toys. There was Barbie, My Little Pony, Polly Pocket, and many more. We all told funny stories about toys and our childhood. I think I'm really going to love this group!

For dessert I picked up a Hershey's Cacao Reserve Bar. Premium Milk Chocolate. 35% Cacao. This, I theorized, would also not be worth my money, but as I've been eyeing them as well, I gave it a shot. Worth every penny of the 99 cents that I paid for 4 smallish squares of this delight. Smooth consistency, delightful chocolate flavor, rich, delicious, and oh so wonderfully melty.

Someone cut right out in front of me without even looking. Part of me wanted to flash my lights at them while flipping them off and honking my horn. Then I quickly realized that, not only did I not have enough hands to complete all those actions simultaneously, but that would probably decrease my driving skill. So I just sat there and continued to drive. One of these days I'm going to do something really outrageous like follow them until they stop and then give them a piece of my mind. Of course, my luck, it would be like the girl my dad talked to. "Where in the hell did you get your driver's license?" "In a little brick building right over there." Yep, that kind of stupidity I don't need!

The other morning while taking the munchkin to daycare, I couldn't bear the thought of listening to her music. So I had my favorite radio station playing. They played "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne. I love the song. Evidently so does the munchkin. All of a sudden, from the back seat, I hear a 20-month-old voice say, "No way, no way". I almost had to stop the car I was laughing so hard!

1- Have your heart broken.
2- Love someone with your whole heart.
3- Learn to love someone without expecting anything in return.
Yep. Pretty deep. And while I would wish that my munchkin never had to experience the pain of a broken heart, you can't know the wonderful things that come from loving someone with your whole heart if you don't know the pain of having your heart broken. It's that whole highs and lows thing.
I want to hear what your lists include. Don't be shy. And for goodness sake, don't feel the need to get all deep like I did. I've just been thinking a lot lately.

Ear infection. One ear, possibly both. Antibiotics can be a wonderful thing. I'm told that this winter will be a telling one for us. If the ear infections continue, we may be looking at tubes. Not quite sure what to think about that.

My next project will be to crochet a likeness of myself, animate it, and send it out to face the world. The munchkin has succeeded is losing a library book. You may be asking yourself, "How does an eighteen-month-old lose a library book?" I can't tell you. All I know is that I brought the thing home from the library and haven't seen it since. I did not pack it to go to Nana and Papa's. It did not go to daycare. I have turned the house upside down in search of it. My only theory is that it went out with the trash. Guess we own it if it ever turns up!
