Tim was singing this three days ago (a bit prematurely) but NOW I think it's true. We have stepped back into the light of healthy digestive tracts. There are still a few coughing/snotting issues but those seem minor in comparison. Tim is back to work and we are back to the usual daily events. And now for your viewing, er, reading pleasure; I have compiled a list of five things I was taking for granted before last week:
#5 -Not having to taste and see every meal twice! I gotta tell you though, the last think I ate before I ... you know ...was Fruity Pebbles. Which may go down (and back up) as one of the least unpleasant episodes ever. Must be something about all that sugar. Not that I'd do it again for fun but if you know it's coming, I recommend Fruity Pebbles.
#4 -Not having to see every meal that my kids eat twice! I don't know what Isaiah had on his plate at church last Wednesday and normally I have nothing but compliments for our amazing kitchen crew BUT even the legendary Karen Frisbee's cooking leaves something to be desired when revisited.
#3 -Trash cans that are actually used as trash cans! No commentary.
#2 -Kissing and hand holding! When you are trying to keep germs confined these things are not an option. And while I am happy to kiss my husbands sweet, smooth, and feverish head; some lips would be nice. Which brings me to...
#1 -Naturally regulated body temperature! (What did you think I was going to say? Get out of the gutter, people. =)) Seriously, fevers are nasty and unless you are dealing with PMS, menopause, or illness; it's good to have a steady, comfortable, internal temperature.
Have a great Monday everyone!
