I settled in Sunday night with a Diet Coke, a cup of decaf from my Keurig and a Skinny Cow Chocolate and Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich. Apparently I was preparing myself for the week ahead. I was also sitting under an electric blanket while consuming said ice cream. Sunday, January 29th
As Mondays go, the day wasn’t terrible. Both kids have had nasty colds, but I think everyone around here has some sort of crud right now. The kids were in a great mood Monday evening. They did a little Prince and Princess slow dancing, then I caught a quick hug before we tried to settle everyone down for bed.

And then Tuesday kinda sucked. Tuesday is one of my ‘office days’. Both kids stay with my grandma, yes – their great grandma – while I work. Mamaw can handle nearly anything, and never calls unless someone is sick. And I mean beyond ‘has a low-grade fever’ sick. When my phone rang around 12:30, I knew a trip to the peds office was in our future. Thankfully, my peds office offers after-hours hours Tuesday – Thursday, so I finished out my work day, picked up the boy and headed to the peds office for a suspected ear infection. Unfortunately, the boy’s ear canal was gucked up and the ped couldn’t see the ear drum without cleaning them out with a Waterpik. That was not fun. Once cleaned, we confirmed the ear infection and headed to the pharmacy.

Since boy wonder was running a fever, he got to play hookie and camp out with me Wednesday morning while his sister was at school. He spent most of the morning laying around, but he started feeling a little better in the afternoon.

I think everyone has at least a few songs that conjure up an image in your head the moment you hear it. For me, Bittersweet Symphony is one of those. No matter where I am or what I’m doing, it always brings me back to the movie Cruel Intentions. Always. It popped up in the shuffle on my drive home Thursday. I could play it over and over.

Friday here was in the 60s. It feels more like Spring than Winter. The kids and I did our running around with the windows rolled down. A milkshake only seemed appropriate.

As evidence of our crazy weather, everything is starting to bloom already. My loropetalum is already full of bright fuscia blooms. We’ll probably have a freeze before it’s all said and done, I just hope it doesn’t kill all of these blooming plants!

If you’re wondering about the feather, it’s still parked in the same spot. I didn’t get a chance to grab a shot of it this week. Hopefully, it will still be waiting on me Tuesday!
