It's been a very long week. Sunday was Smurfette's 1st "friend" party. We won Tootsie the clown at a fundraiser raffle. So Tootsie was a big hit. We had about 15 kids here. I started feeling a little funky by the end of the party and Smurfette went to bed with 102.5 degree fever. Sorry everyone. And that started the week of misery...we both had fevers and a very sore throat. Went to the doc on Wed. thinking maybe it was strep...it wasn't...I got the "it's a virus and you have to let it run it's course" speech...so I gave him the "do you realize it's almost Christmas and I'm not done shopping...I don't have time to let it run it's course" speech...so anyway, Smurfette & I spent Monday through Thursday curled up on the couch. I still didn't feel right on Friday but I was going a little stir crazy being cooped up in the house doing nothing all week.....so....Smurfette went to school and I spent that time wandering around the mall.....by myself.....ahhhhh......It's now Saturday and I still don't feel 100%. My babysitter called this morning to cancel because SHE'S sick.....Papa smurf & I are going out tonight with some friends.....Grandma to the rescue!
Thursday I went to Verizon to get my new toy activated....got the Voyager phone....very exciting. But I had all 3 kids with me because hubby was still at work. So....before we walked into the store I warned them all that there would be no yelling and no warnings....If they didn't behave they would immediately have their TV and PS2 and WII privilages taken away for the rest of the evening. We weren't in there 5 minutes before I turn around and the boys are on the benches wrestling each other down and being obnoxious.....so I interupt them and tell them that I was going to start bipping heads soon....and Hefty Smurf with his sense of humor defense tactic says (with a "I'm so cute how could you be mad at me" smirk) "uh-oh....Dreamy Smurf....stop (Dreamy wasn't paying attention to me and didn't see me).....mom's threatening us with "the bip" while giving "the look"..... everyone in the store witnessing this busted out laughing.....as did I.....and yes ....they still lost their priveleges! Nice try though!
So Smurfette went back to school yesterday. When I picked her up she said to the boy Alex...the one she has a crush on..."bye snickers"
me: "why did you call him snickers"
J; "because he's just like my favorite candy bar...& I just want to eat him."
