Throw Me Something Mister!

Are the Good Times Rolling Yet?

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted. We suffered through a dreadful pandemic starting the end of January that lasted a few weeks. Ok that may be exagerating a bit....I am after all reading "Influenza" right now (the true story of the 1918 flu pandemic which is NOT a good thing to be reading when everyone in your family seems to have the flu!). Actually it was just me and the kids but it was bad. So bad in fact I was secretly hoping I'd be hospitalized and quarantined with no visitors allowed for at least 2 days. How sick is that. When I went to my regular prenatal Dr. visit I was so sick that he gave me some prescriptions to get me over it. He also (as a joke) called Andy on his cell phone to tell him that I had chronic bronchitis and needed to recouperate so instead of putting me in the hospital he was ordering that I be sent to the spa at the Grand Hotel for a few days. Andy then replied...."yeah...well....she also has chronic gas and wets her pants when she laughs so what are you going to do about that?" Guess the joke was on me. Have I said lately how much fun it is to be pregnant?

We did manage to take the kids to a few Mardi Gras parades and they had a great time. Until Catherine was pelted in the face with a pile of beads and William was plowed down by a fat woman trying to steal his Moon Pie. Oh wait...that was me. He's ok though. He will grow new teeth in a few years.

Happy Mardi Gras!
