It's only a matter of time

B has a cold.  Not the stuffy head, blow your nose a million times kind of cold.  Oh no, he's got the deep in the chest, cough til your lungs explode and drive your wife crazy kind of cold.  I noticed his deeper, and somewhat sexier voice last night.  He said he was feeling fine, I knew he wasn't.  By 8 p.m. it was apparent that if I was going to get any sleep, Nyquil would need to be taken.  (By him, although I thought about it!)  So, he took his medication like a good boy and slept like a baby.  Of course that meant that the germs were being thrown into the air with each snore and I'm pretty sure the majority of them landed on me.

This morning my throat felt a little sore.  But I don't have a cold.  I blamed it on not sleeping well.  I swigged my diet coke all day and forgot about my throat.  We bought cough drops tonight, because I can't stand the hacking.  He isn't using them.  And even when he does use them, he chews them quickly (crunch, crunch) and that's almost as bad as the hacking.  I think a double dose of Nyquil is in the works for this evening.

I don't want this cold. I have tried to avoid him, but it's hard when you are husband and wife to avoid the germs being spread everywhere. 

So, I know it's only a matter of time before I'm hacking up a lung.  Can't wait.

The things kids say

We have had the blessing of having our 6 (almost 7 he reminded us) year old nephew at our house every day after school this week.  We love this kiddo with every fiber of our being.  He is handsome and smart and tells it like it is.  We have had discussions on all sorts of topics from why do we say the blessing before we eat to when can he have a sleep over.

He has had many pearls of wisdom for us this week.  He asked me Monday if I knew that B was 50.  I pretended to be surprised and asked him if he thought he looked good for his age.  He replied, "oh yes, he looks really young!" 

I made chop suey for supper one night - after he told me that he loves chop suey.  Unfortunately, mine was not quite as good as his step-mom's.  It was good...just not great like hers!  He ate a little bit, and then went home and ate another supper.

Tonight we were playing the Wii and he told me that I should play because I needed exercise.  I could stand to lose a little weight.  I said "what!" and he told me that I looked good, but could lose a little around my tummy.  So of course I played the Wii!   My personal trainer is 6 years old!

We have him with us one more night this week and I cannot wait to hear his latest thoughts.  Our house is going to be mighty quiet after tomorrow night!

No More Snow!

The past 3 or 4 weekends there has been no snow.  The weathermen have threatened us with the possibility, but nothing.  The past 3 or 4 weekends we haven't had much for plans - B was working, last weekend we just hung at home. 

We have had this upcoming weekend planned for weeks as a quick trip to see my family 4 hours away.  Monday, the weathermen talked of a little snow possible on Friday.  Tuesday, they said it might be around 6 inches in our area.  Today, they are now calling it a huge Nor'easter with feet (not foot) of snow, coming in Thursday night and lasting til Saturday morning.  What?????  I'm afraid to hear what these weather guys have to say tomorrow morning!

I worked extra time Monday and today so I could leave early Friday.  Won't that be great...driving in the middle of a blizzard?  The good news is that there isn't suppose to be much for snow where we are going.  The bad news...our 4 hour drive will probably take 5 or 6 stressful hours. 

Oh, some more good news is that Sunday they are predicting sunshine and no snow on either end of the state.  The bad news...the weather people will probably have changed that by Sunday!

So, please pray for safe travels for us!

Superbowl Sunday

So what's so special about today?  Yes, 2 football teams are going to battle it out to see who is the better team today.  Big whoop.  Yes, we are going to have  our 2nd annual Superbowl Party for 2 and eat buffalo chicken dip and fajitas.   Yum.  Yes, I am going to watch the commercials and probably not much football.  Truth.  Yes, I do all of this for my husband who is a sports fanatic.  Love.

I think what makes this day special is that B and I got up and went to church.  We worshipped and fellowshipped and heard a great message from our Pastor.    Millions of dollars are being spent today on bets, food, tickets, and more.  But the bottom line is that spending time with the Lord and an eternity in heaven is priceless compared to all the other goings on today.
