The Mundane

gnightgirl has issued a challenge-something mundane about myself?

Hmmm, well some would say *cough-frugalmom-cough*. That I'm unusually lucky or my karma is really good. I seem to have great luck with being sent things to test or getting free stuff from companies. I've had whole crockpots sent to replace cracked handles, I've been sent extra stuff from home parties(stuff that was not ordered, which I of course kept), I belong to a gardening club and have been picked several times to test out products, etc. I don't know if it's my karma or my survey answers or what. It does seem to happen a lot though.

Sick boys

So, as usual, my boys have contracted something. 102 and 101 temps, headaches, don't feel like eating. Great, so they will probably miss school tomorrow. Hmmm, I guess we have challenged immune systems.

P is feeling really bad, no doubt he is ill. G, well he may be sick but he's milking it for all it's worth. In hopes, I'm sure, of being able to miss school tomorrow.

I guess my plans for the next few days have been altered. Here's to a quick recovery.

I've been overseas I swear!

So, I posted and then went to Germany for a week. Sorry. It was my first time overseas and it was quite an adventure. We saw two castles, a monument honoring Einstein, lots of small cars going very fast, many, many odd looking punks and Goths, Birds(remember the cow statues that were painted by artist and placed all over the U.S., like that only birds). We ate lots of yummy food. But now I'm suffering from jet lag. So, when my DH gets home I will post photos and tell my stories.

I'm actually alive

So, some of you may think since it's been almost a year since I last posted that I actually did have a brain aneurysm. Maybe your thinking I: a. Actually did die and so I haven't been able to post or b. Had some kind of damage done and couldn't remember to post. Neither would be true. I have just been so caught up in reading other blogs and knitting and life that I haven't made time to post. So, I'm giving it another shot. Hopefully this year will be better.
