Up a Horse's Nostril

Wow... I haven't posted anything in a long while. For those who don't know - our family is sick! Really sick...

First Ethan was sick and broke out in the hive-thing. We now know that he is allergic to eggs. So... he looks a lot better now.

Last week I was very sick with whatever the kids at school decided to share with me. It was horrible. I lost my voice and I found out that mom's don't get sick-time. So I was at work every day, planned and executed our school's Open House, and came home to take care of the house and my family. The days I was home Ethan was sick with what I had. It was so not fun.

Today, I got a phone call from Dave letting me know that he needed some medication from the store because he is sick. I was given a list of five different medications! The cashier was looking at me weird! I laughed when I saw Dave in bed... what a baby! I asked him why I didn't get any sympathy when I was sick? I reminded him that I took no medication, worked twice as hard at work, and at home! Men when they are sick... :)

The only thing that has kept me going this week is taking Ethan every day to house sit 3 dogs. On the way to see the dogs yesterday, there was a horse at the gate of a pasture. So, I pulled over and got Ethan out to see the horse. I signed "horse" and held him up to the animal. Ethan then decided to put his finger in the horse's nostril. Well... I guess if I was 1 I would probably wonder what the big hole was on the horse's face too. Anyway, the whole way home today he was signing "horse." But, the horse wasn't there... so sad.
