What a Ride!

My husband bought an older car when he became a Postal Carrier.  He got a 1999 Toyota Corolla.  The other day he picked the girls up from piano.  It was an unseasonably warm day and he had his window rolled down.  The girls asked him to roll theirs down and he told them they had to.  He looked back and they were trying to open the door.  He explained how to turn the handle to roll it down.  The girls flipped!  I guess they spent the rest of the ride exclaiming how cool it was and WHY don't they make ALL windows this way. LOL!  If they only knew.....

Heart of Gold

I was recently able to review the book Heart of Gold written by one of my favorite authors, Robin Lee Hatcher!  

The leading lady in this fictional book is Shannon.  She travels with her father to Idaho.  They are formerly from Virginia and Shannon is not at all sure that she should even be in Idaho.  She misses Virginia and all her friends that she left behind.  Shannon is unsure what purpose she will have in Idaho.  Then she meets Matthew.  His sister is a widow with a young son and she is sick.  Since Shannon had experience nursing soldiers she steps in to help care for the woman.  An unlikely friendship is started and Shannon begins to feel drawn to Matthew as well. 
If you want to know more than that read the book.  This one makes the list for a great summer read!  Especially if you are going on a vacation.  Pick up this book!

Sick of Sickness

This week all 3 of our kids ended up being sick.  Really does not make for fun times.  I sure hope they are feeling better tomorrow because we are supposed to go house hunting.  I believe there are 9 houses for us to see.  To recap the week...
The Professor had an ear infection and was put on antibiotics and a decongestant.
The Genius had an ear infection and was also put on antibiotics.
The Hippie woke the other day with a 103 fever.  Took HER in and she had a viral infection with a horrid cough and she was given some cough medicine.
Here's a healthy weekend!

Today was interesting.  I woke up and 2/3 of our kids were sick.  I called the doctor and got appointments for them at 9:30.  Turns out our oldest and youngest BOTH had ear infections.  They are just miserable.  Our poor Genius got sick after the doctor looked at her ears and she threw up several times.  The Professor is just grumpy and is not eating.  He has lost a full pound.  Now the meds are giving him an upset tummy. 
However, my husband unexpectedly had the day off and he surprised me in a BIG way!  He put an address in my GPD and told me to follow it.  He gave me money and told me to buy a fountain diet coke.  And he gave me a mystery envelope.  When I got to the destination it was basically a parking lot in a chain strip mall type place.  I called him and sent me a text photo of the inside of a nail salon.  I went in and had an appointment for a pedicure and the envelope held the money to pay for it!!! How loving is that?
