We’ve been struck down with the lurgy here are Casa de Squidge. I came down with it Monday night and Squidge got it on Wednesday. I spent 3 days in bed with the chills wanting to die. It was pretty miserable. Squidge is still a little sick but soo much better than she was. She is now blowing snot bubbles and running up to me saying ‘mummy dose’ or ‘mummy my dose has boogies’- meaning she wants me to wipe her nose. Being a mom is soo much fun. She’s also telling random strangers that she has boogies in her nose- I’m sure they’re all thrilled to bits to hear it.
The most exciting news of the week was the purchase of a new computer. My little Dell was dying- slow, files corrupted, cd-rom not working etc, etc, etc!! So after much discussion (we’re talking months) we decided to buy a Mac. I had originally thought about getting a MacBook but finally settled on an iMac. I don’t need the portability of a laptop and the monitor on this thing RAWKS! I’m still not sure how to use it all. Would you all like an example of my complete and utter confusion with this machine? Last night I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to shut this thing down. I never did figure it out. I just left it and it eventually went into hibernation mode, although Apple calls it something else.
The weather here has been horrible- cold, snowy, dark and gray. Yesterday the sun was a shinin’ people. I wanted to go for a walk but had just put Squidge down for a nap so we decided we’d go out today instead. Wouldn’t you just know it, as soon as we got a few blocks from home it started to rain/snow. We kept going having decided to stop for a coffee while we waited to see if it was going to let up. It didn’t but at least I had a nice cup of (expensive) coffee.
On the head lice front I still haven’t found any so I think we lucked out. I’m still checking almost daily but it’s been a week so I think we’re safe. I have photos to post and I’ll update this as soon as I get them up so check back!
As promised, some pictures.
