    Good morning! :coffee:

    It's going to be a beautiful day today... high around 80. And the pool is filled! Hopefully the chemicals are right... :swimming:

    I have a ton of errands to run this morning then I may head over to the school with freezie pops for the kids. :hot:

    Have a great day! :salute:

    TM, I'm glad your pool is full - sounds like lots of fun in store!

    It's cold here, wintry. Rainy and windy too, with dangerous heavy seas. I'm stillcoughing (carefully).

    difficult child 3 & I saw the GP this afternoon, difficult child 3 has tested positive to mycoplasma, but I tested negative to whooping cough (which suprises everybody). The doctor hear me coughing (again) and says that it sure sounds like whooping cough. Plus she confirmed - as far as she can tell, I DO have a broken rib. I have to make an appointment with the allergy specialist to find out what antibiotics I can be given.

    So with difficult child 3 with mycoplasma, husband with whooping cough and me with no diagnosis but symptoms identical to both my males, I'm feeling a lot like one of those ducks at a shooting gallery. Just going back and forth, going nowhere but captive to the bullets whizzing around me, waiting for one to get me and knock me down.

    I got some shopping done this evening, I'm ready to turn out a kitchen load of comfort food for the wintry weather. Another Moroccan lamb casserole, a roast chicken dinner - the world looks a rosier place when there's a stomach full of good food.

    Enjoy your Tuesday.

    TM, What time should I come over? 80 degrees and a pool - I'm ready!!!:beach::swimming: ENJOY the day:D!!!

    Marg, I haven't posted much lately but have been keeping you, your husband, and difficult child 3 in my thoughts... I can't even begin to imagine how difficult, painful and frustrating this is for you... With that cough, you must be in excruciating pain from the broken rib. I know there isn't anything I can say that is going to help, but I want you to know I'm sending lots of positive healing thoughts and hugs your way...

    I'm only on my second cup of coffee this morning.:bloodshot: After the caffeine kicks in, I'm going to go for a jog. Then I'm off to work. From there I'll pick up difficult child 2 at school. husband will bring difficult child 1 home from the office later. As far as I know, easy child doesn't have anything after school today. I'm hoping to go to bed early this evening and try to catch up on some much needed zzz;s... :sleeping:

    As always, I hope everyone has at least one reason to laugh or at least smile today... WFEN:sunny:

    Good Morning kids.

    TM the early days of summer up north are just full of pleasant memories for me. The first dip in the cold pool and the excitement even if our lips were blue. Thanks for the nostalgic trip to my little girl memories.

    Marguerite, I can't imagine how worn out all three of you must be. Whooping cough scares the bejeebers out of me. Most kids who have it in the states are put in the hospital and I think they go into isolation to prevent the spread of a horrible disease.

    WFEN, you inspired me to amp up my walk with a bit more energy and a little jog with the dogs yesterday. It helped that it wasn't scorching hot. I know they don't recommend that sort of jog/run at my age but I did love it when I did it.
    Hope you get that good nights sleep.

    I attended a local pet stores animal training class. I figured it was a good way to interact with my newest pet. I had fun meeting the other pet owners and all the different dogs. Of course, like children they were all adorable and with personalities of their own. I was impressed that the vast majority of them were rescues. It's a good refresher and resource to make sure we help the pups live cohesively within our particular pack. LOL. It is a bit of a challenge to work with two dogs with different temperments and different needs. Hence I am doing one at a time during the course of the day. I should have taken this course before I had kids. Many similar principles. I like "no free lunch" everyone has to work for their food. Basically it's the old "do to get" philosophy that we have used with difficult child for the last 10 yrs.

    difficult child has a medication visit with his dr. today. It's so nice to just send him on his way. LOL.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Good Morning,

    TM-How fun!! I'm jealous! I still haven't made it to the swimming pool.

    Marg-Ouch on the broken rib. That is weird that they can't figure out the cough. Sounds like you will be enjoying some wintry comfort food soon!

    WFEN-Enjoy your jog! I hope you do get to bed early and are able to catch up on that sleep.

    Usual stuff on the summer agenda, club and napping. I think it is suppose to be a rainy day but right now the sun is out. Also we'll be celebrating difficult child's birthday (he is so excited, I'll do a separate post).

    Wishing everyone a peaceful day.:peaceful:

    Fran-Hi! You snuck in on me. We took Ella to dog training class-you're right the dogs are so cute! Ella, unfortunately is a doggie school drop out (we had to take her out because difficult child was hospitalized for the first time and doggie school was at the same time as visiting hours). How nice to be able to send difficult child on his own way to the doctor!
  7. Good morning, all! It's the last week of school for us. difficult child only has to hold it together for another three days. Well, mostly together, anyway. Hope everyone has a good day!
