Keep On Driving

If you pull up to our place on the cul-de-sac...just keep on driving. Do not pass go and do not collect $200. That is unless you would like a free transmission of the grossest and yukiest case of whatever form of bad chest cold/flu/headache/stuffy nose/fever/chills plus full frontal green oozing snot you've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

I was icky sick all week while the Muffin Man traveled for business. I've said it before but it is a special kind of hurt reserved for those adults who are sick and still have loads of childcare responsibilities. I'm calling the Sesame Street people to personally thank them for babysitting my kids this week. Where can I buy stock? If it wasn't for my dear friend who fed me and my kids this week while calling each day to make sure I wasn't slamming my head into the brick siding for congestion relief, well, I'm not sure what I would have done. Then, as luck would have it the Muffin Man rolled back into town with it. And, we all know how the average man does with the flu. We are no exception over here. My God, you'd think he's had some dread disease diagnosis. Everyday he's taken to shopping for the best vitamin drink or nasal spray with 8813% B12. I'm not exaggerating, the one he brought home this afternoon has 8813% of the daily recommended value of vitamin B12. It took everything I had not to tell him you just use the 100% and pee out the rest, Sparky. Oh no, I simply nodded and said "Yes dear, I'm sure that energy drink will completely cure you by 8pm tonight."

Everyone must get better by Wednesday morning. End of story. We have a date with the Mouse. You know the big Mouse who lives in Orlando? We are riding his coat tails down to Orlando while he works business.

Of course all Ava cares about is the darn pool at the resort. Magic Kingdom within striking distance and all she is concerned with is if she is tall enough to slide the water slide at the resort. Consequently, I did not go overboard buying park tickets this year. She can slide all she wants and I will sit in that hot tub sipping something overly fruity preferrably with an umbrella in it.

Ooh! I'm so sorry you've been so sick...thank God for your friend! It's SO hard to go it alone with the kiddos.
And, I do hope that the Muffin Man is cured by his magic drink.

Enjoy Disney! (and your fruity drinks!)

Hope you all feel better in time for your visit with Mr Mouse, et al. We just got back from the happiest place on earth and, I must admit, it was a ton of fun for us all...
Happy travels!
