Preschool day

Cody is at preschool this morning, but today he actually made excuses as to why he did not want to go. That is very out of character for him, but he even said his leg was painful so he would have to stay home. Sheesh. Anyway, I dropped him off this morning, so hopefully he will have a good time and come home excited to go back again. He missed last week because he was sick. Of course, I am still quite sick and was up all night coughing, but I do feel that there has been a slight improvement over the last 24 hours or so. I hope I am right!

Jamie is outside playing in the van right now. Not sure whether that's the best idea, but he loves it and he does not have the keys, so I figured the damage he could do would be minimal. Micah is inside with me, playing with the phone. He will probably dial somebody by accident. He has done it before. Crazy kid! He seems to be feeling all right, though he is purple under the eyes, and on one side there is a scratch or something, so it looks like he has a black eye. Other than that, he looks a bit better today and seems decently happy. I hope we are coming to the end of this horrible virus!

Today is the day I need to try to catch up with some housework, seeing it is still very messy in here. I have about five baskets of laundry to fold and put away, and I should do at least two loads in the wash.

Jamie just came in and saw a pinecone on the floor. He said it was gross and it was a choking hazard. He has determined that he should throw it away. He insisted it should go in the sandbox. He said bye, and then told me he is not Auntie Patti anymore. He is Jamie. Okay. Whatever works for him. He likes to pretend to be other people, and he was pretending to be his Auntie Patti while he was playing in the van, because she has a truck and he was pretending to be driving a truck. He is only two and a half, but somehow he knows that a van is not that cool and a truck is. Hm. Hehehe.

Anyway, not too much else to report at this time. Everything is the same around here for now. I have about two days to get better before we decide whether or not to stick with our Thanksgiving plans. (For you Americans out there, our Thanksgiving is this coming weekend. I know yours is much later, in November, I think?) I was supposed to be bringing the turkey, but my mom is going to get one herself because she doesn't think I'll make it there. We'll see, I guess. For now, I'm off to enjoy the last three quarters of an hour of silence around here, with Jamie still outside and Cody not home. Aaahhh. It is rather peaceful, I must say. Bye for now.

Happy pre thanksgiving!

I get the privilage of celebrating 2 thanksgivings. My sis and I are going to make some thanksgiving dinner this weekend since we are faithful Canadians. And then we'll have another celebration in November for American thanksgiving.

I love you and I bet that Cody will have a great day today at pre school!

Love you friend!
