FINALLY back......
WHEW!!! What a Christmas rush! Am I the only one that feels, that you prepare, and prepare, and then in this whirlwind, its all over? It was a good whirlwind, but boy, it left me really sick! Lack of sleep, tons of junkfood (btw why does everyone celebrate holidays with food that's bad for you? pies, cakes, cookies, frosting, candy, drinks, chips and dips, and hams, and gravies...ughhhhh I've eaten enough fat and sugar these last 2 weeks to last all of 2007~funny, we don't show up with carrots and say,"Dig in, and Merry Christmas!"), not much sleep, and a tad bit of stress. That combination, plus let's get everyone together in warm houses and hug...has let the virus bugs fly here in my house, and recovery has been rough! I'm still feeling like, OK, that's it, it's over, and now the New Year? And the next party and the next big shopping sale, then the Valentine's day rush, which before it's even Feb. 14th we'll be pressured to decorate and be ready for Easter......wow.....Maybe my last 3 days in bed were good, just to get a breather!
I've been down and out for 3 days and I'm actually excited to go to Albertson's and get some groceries today!:) Madalyne has taken care of me incredibly! Luckily for me, being that I got so sick right after Christmas, she had plenty of new toys to occupy her time! She's been so cute though, playing "doctor" for mommy! She came to the bed yesterday afternoon and brought a whole collection of Disney Princess jewelry and pretend makeup, as "medicine" that was gonna make me better! I tell you this, I don't care HOW sick anyone would've been at that moment, YOU would have been better! I was just cracking up......each little toy had a sound effect when she "used it on me". Sound effects were incredible and she kept saying," Don't laugh, I'm fixing you!" I had to put my hand over my mouth to keep her from seeing my giggle, I can not put here in black & white the sounds coming out of that kid. She then adorned me with all the jewelry pieces....so a plastic blue pinky ring, one large clip on earring, 2 beaded necklaces and 8 bracelets later, I'm all better!!!

Glad to see that you are feeliing so much better! Welcome back to humanity !!

Funny thing about your Maddy the Doctor story is that you were that way too! Always wanting to 'help' when we were ill. Guess it runs in the family!

Isn't having children just a blast??? Nothing like it!

Love you ...

Yo Chica. Hope you didn't get the bug from us. Ash has been talking all about the bug he had that came out of his mouth and went into Car Car and Mommy. I guess I should call it something else besides 'bug'. Can't wait to party with you guys tonight! What a party it will be...ha ha.
