Another week gone by

Wow, another Friday and I'm happy to say we've made it through the week! Both girls are recovering form Scarlet Fever. Kaylee's rash is just about gone and Jennah's is fading fast as well. they're chomping at the bit to get out and play with some friends since they been cooped up for 2 weeks. I managed to get out and have dinner with some high school friends of mine last night. We had a fun time as usual. We went to a German restaurant and although German food is not a favorite of mine, it was very good. Of course you can't go wrong ordering a Reuben sandwich! Anyway, we're off to get some shopping done today. Hopefully, it won't rain on us!

It was the most awful...

Tonight, I made the most awful dinner we've had in a long time. Seriously, it was a cross between Alpo and prison food. I've never eaten either one of those things but from what I hear they're not good! I don't really know what went wrong. I broiled some fish. Sounds easy enough right? Well, I've done it a million times before but this time, it was honest to goodness mush! Then there was the semi Greek salad - tomatoes, onions, Greek olives and Greek dressing. Oh, did I say onions - because all we tasted were the onions. The funny thing is, the onion I bought was the same kind we had in a salad earlier this week and the other one was very mild and sweet. Not this one. There's not enough toothpaste in the northern hemisphere to bring the breath back to normal after eating the onion we had tonight. I'm surprised my eyesight is good enough to type this post up. The canned baked beans were the best part of the dinner but don't applaud yet. I did find a piece of the can label in my scoopful! It was so funny! Oh well, now I'll just sit back and wait for Debbie (aka Paula Deen) to make her comments! LOL

Oh yeah, I now have TWO spotted children! Jennah woke up to get a drink of water a few minutes ago and her cheeks looked funny to me so I had her pull up her nightgown to find she's all spotted too! Funny thing is I've been checking her frequently during the day and didn't see anything until now and to my knowledge, she didn't have a fever that I know of. Well, I know, it's not funny but I thought we MIGHT get away without her getting sick - silly me! Guess I'll be calling my favorite pediatrician tomorrow to get an Rx for Jennah!

Florida Life...

If you ever want to see some mad rain, visit Florida in the summer. They don't call us the Lightening Capital of the World for nothing! It has been raining non-stop for about two weeks now! Typically, it just rains for about 20 minutes in the afternoon around four pm. Lately though, it's just been raining all day every day! I'm done! Done with the soggy lawn which cannot get cut because it's soggy. Done with trying to entertain the kids while it's pouring in buckets outside, and just done with the rain all together... listen up Miss Mother Nature, I want some sunshine! LOL We did manage to slip out yesterday to get to the hobby shop so Mike could go in and get some parts for his r/c car. When we got home, there was a big turtle at the end of our driveway - He looks tired of all the rain as well!

Yes, those are some nasty clouds.
