Adventures in family life

Well, we are all sick now..... thankfully not the stomach flu like fever and throwing up thing my son did last week, but we all have some sort of cough and sneezing-running stuffed noses (if that makes sense) and a general ill feeling.

Add to this the carelessness of my 6 year old who threw a book yesterday, which hit my almost 4 year old in the nose causing it to bleed. And my son constantly trying to climb out of his crib at nap time. And the mellow drama that goes on continually; yesterday Ysa (6) was Laura Ingalls, Moriah (>=4) was Mary Ingalls, and Nathaniel (2) was Mr. Edwards. Today they are some of their own made up characters and they keep switching who they are so I can't even tell you which "friends" are here right now.

So I made soup for dinner, Sopa de Albondigas, and it turned out quite a bit more meatball and less soup, so I'll just be adding to it for dinner tonight, but that's less work than a normal dinner, so I'm not complaining.
Due to brain fog on all our parts, school will be light duty this week.
Yesterday we did: Spelling: new list; Math: introducing 3 addends; and watched a Science movie. So today we will most likely continue on that same path. Ysa, of coarse, reads all the time so I don't have to assign it much, and she's having Little House withdrawls since we are waiting to go to the Library for the last book in the series. She's already asked if we can start over again since we don't have the last book right now!

I am still waiting for a returned call from the nutritionist so we can make a new appt. and Friday we have 2 appt.s so I may have a busy for me week.

So I think I'm going to stop this stream of consciousness writing and go rest now.
Wish me well.

one of my favs.
But the recipe seems to be missing something. Maybe more spicy! Spicy is always good!
How in the world did you get an accent mark!!!!?
I can't every do it! :#
