Mermaids and Sickness

Gemma has requested that her friends Hallie and Sydney come over for Princess Ariel School. What might Princess Ariel School consist of you ask. Well dressing up like mermaids of course. Watching The Little Mermaid, and coloring pictures of the Princess Ariel. All Gemma's idea. I'll admit that Ariel was also my favorite princess. I can still belt out the look at this stuff isn't it neat wouldn't you think my collections complete song from memory. And when they replayed the movie in the theatres back in 1997 I made my boyfriend/husband take me to see it. I think Princess Ariel school sounds like so much fun. I might even have to get one of those fabulous Little Mermaid cakes that turns your poop magical colors. Oh I can hardly wait. We are so having this mermaid party when we are all done with this darn sickness. Emily hasn't been feeling well. Tanner is waking up with crusty eyes. My eyes feel like they are going to pop out of my head, and my teeth feel like they are being smashed with a hammer. I finally made Rob go see a doctor because he hadn't slept in like 4 nights and his constant coughing and throat clearing was driving me bonkers. The doctor thought he might have bronchitis and put him on 3 different meds. I'm not complaining though because last year at this time I was pregnant and knee deep in throw up, and for me there is nothing worse than throw up. Wouldn't I love. Love to explore that world outside our house. Someday we'll be. Healthy and free. Back to ourselves.
