Another Day

 Well, it was another day of sickness in our house.  This is Quinn...passed out...at 10:30 this morning.  Apparently he had had enough of the day.  And really, who can blame him.  I think I may have been ready for a nap at 10:30 this morning, too.  And again, Ike was more than happy to spend the day on the couch with him.  Chris stayed home today and I'll be home with him tomorrow.  Right now, we're imagining that all will be well by Wednesday.  Humor us, please.

We had breakfast tonight for dinner.  This is pretty much a meal that is in regular rotation in our winter menu.  Talk about comfort foods.  Yum!  Usually we have eggs, bacon, biscuits and hashbrowns.  But tonight Chris mixed it up a little bit and make grits instead of hashbrowns and with some left over potatoes from the weekend he whipped up this delight...
...potato pancakes.  I really should have taken a picture at the beginning of the meal instead of when I went back to get seconds.  Sometimes I am just not on the ball with things like that.  Anyway, can I just tell you that this was a slice of heaven for me.  Mashed red potatoes...skins on...onions...cheese...fried in bacon fat.  I'm not really sure that my heart thought it was heaven, but my mouth definitely did.  I praise God that my husband is a good cook.  Seriously. 

After dinner I actually felt like a good mother.  Most of the time I am forgetting to do things, sign things, turn things in...  But tonight?  I think I should win an award.  I made the girls' teachers Christmas presents tonight - fab new earrings - boxed them, ribboned them, and they are waiting on the island in the kitchen for the girls to take in tomorrow.  I may not be a room mom, or be able to attend PTO meetings and AR parties, but I can make some damn good Christmas presents.  And that's all I have to say about that.

Poor little Quinn. Will the sickness ever go away? You guys may just have to quarantine him until after the holidays. I bet his neck was hurtin' after that nap.

That's exactly what I thought, Molly! When he gets over the sickness, he won't be able to turn his neck!

Poor Quinn. I wish they had a magic wand for making little kids perfectly happy and healthy. I mean a DS will only get you so far.
