We're making her a purple rectangle cake in honor of her 11th birthday wish for a cake that was not a heart.
Cori said we should go leave a piece of cake on her grave today "like the good Buddhists we aren't"...
I think we will.
She would laugh.

Happy 47 Mom.

Havah too...

I really hope Lilly was the one who brought it into the house, and is already done...

Swine Flu

Cori is very sick. Headache, chest cough, fever. Our Mama Sue very kindly consented to take him to the urgent care this morning, since I'm not supposed to carry the car seat yet, and Cori should not be driving.

He just Skyped me from the Dr. office. They're testing him for H1N1 (swine flu).

Oh joy.
When I wished for days off from work, this was not exactly what I had in mind.... oh my poor sweet husband.

*** He's got the flu.... great...

No touching, breathing or looking in the baby's direction at all... or the girls & I. LOTS of bleach water, Lysol wipes, laundry, hand washing and hand sanitizer.

Worst part? None of the sweet kisses that husbands and wives share while adoring new babies... Nope we have had and will continue to have absolutely none of that.

Best part? I get to sleep in my very comfortable bed all by myself... (there has to be a silver lining right?) Cori's already been moved into the upstairs guest bed with his tissues, hand sanitizer and face masks.

Pray nobody else gets this. It's crummy.
