Sick sicker sickest

I have been sick, sick, sick, which explains the lack of thoughtful posts. I thought the first two colds were on their way out when the evil third one struck Wednesday night. Now I'm wondering: sinus infection? I used to get those so bad when I was in college that my mom's friend, an ENT doctor, would suck out all the mucus for me with a special machine at his clinic.

Oh, how I wish for one of those suckers now.

So, in place of a post with any sort of "point," a few things of interest from our sick days:

Hot toddies are wonderful things, until you run out of whiskey.

Check out the amazing squirrel on my other blog.

This Little Bear clip is what I use when I need Abe to be still enough for me to clip his nails. I love it. Thanks, Autumn. This other one is
wonderful as well. Sweet, magical stuff.

Our son is the sweetest, gentlest guy I know. We've been having issues with a slightly older boy we see regularly pushing, hitt
ing, poking, grabbing hair, and rubbing Abe's face in concrete (yeah, that last one pissed me off--was ready to karate-chop a small toddler). When we ran into this same toddler at a park a few days ago, Abe walks right up to him saying "hi" and hands him the rake he'd been playing with while saying "Thank you!" (which sounds like thu-da). Tonight, Abe kept asking for M&M's, which he would promptly hand right back to me, also saying thu-da, wanting me to eat it. He's a giver, that one.

I kno
w this post is very linky, but this news story cracks me up. I laugh and laugh every time I see it.

And because I know it's all about kids in funny costumes, our Halloween pictures:Yes, he's a chicken.

It's fun when dramatic high school students in the neighborhood open the door to hand out candy.
