Once more into the breach my friends...

Yes, the delinquent is back.

I've been working very hard at my Pirates of Penzance production of late so it has not left me a lot of free time. Although I am practicing a lot of piratey skills like swashbuckling, gun slinging and the singing of elaborately wordy songs, I have not been working on my blogging expertise. As you may have noticed. Ahem. Sorry about that.

Today I am sporting a new and improved cold virus. How do I know? I am a complete medical novice but frankly anything that has been kicking around since December deserves to be new and improved, up for a virus medal, winner of a virus prize etc. etc. How do I know it's a virus then? Because all the doctor's I've seen keep telling me it is one. I keep grossing them out with all the meuchousy, feverish, down right pathetic symptoms and they keep telling me the same thing. It's just a virus ma'am. Nothing to worry about.

Makes you want to invent symptoms, just to prove you sat three hours in the walk in clinic for a good reason. Gooey green scales on your elbow, flame throwing breath, or a weird hankering for fresh metal, for instance. I don't think it would help though. They'd probably just shrug their shoulders, pat me on the back and say. Nothing to worry about ma'am. All the colds this year are going that way.

Doctors are just too hard to impress.

I still think projectile vomitting in the waiting area might get you more attention, not to mention, faster attention also!

You need to try that one... just remind me not to join you when you practice this option. Thanks

I try projectile sneezing in my classroom.... so far the record is 6 feet, but I'm working on it....

vomiting on the doctor's counter when you're waiting to be seen really does get you in quicker--Katrina did it for me once...very quick service...mind you, it was just a virus...

Happy Easter to you all!

aaah, the fun of colds and flus...I'm SOOOOO glad Katrina has finally let go of her most recent bout!!

Just wanted to say thank you, yet again, for all the wonderful hand-me-downs you passed to Katrina--they'll help with the next little bambina too!! And they look SO cute on my little monkey!!

Hugs! A lady at church said she was talking with your better/other-half on the weekend and that your little one had to get stitches--hopefully he's OK!!
Take care and happy Mother's day a bit late!
