Speaking of two cute boys, Taylor and Parker had a basketball game tonight. They played GREAT and are so much fun to watch! I'm so proud of them, if still a little bitter about the prank they pulled on me. There is a lady that attends their games (her grandson is on the team) that is so cute. She is enamoured with the kids and with our family dynamic. She'll say things like, "Oh, there you are-- the lady that sits around and eats bon bons all day!" or "Oh, there's Miss Serenity," or "So how's the lady with the peaceful, easy life?" She makes me smile. Sometimes just having someone recognize that your load isn't light makes your load a bit lighter, don't you think? (:
Well, I'm sure you will forgive me if I wrap this post up quickly. You see, I managed to drop a small weight on my finger earlier today, resulting in this:
If you can't tell, it's very puffy and VERY sore. This means that every time I type an "s", "w", or "x" I wince with pain. Fun. I'm not sure which hurts worse right now-- my finger or my throat. After two weeks of wiping noses every other minute and having all nine kids cough all over me and rocking and holding the sweet littles as they fevered, I finally got the lovely sickness going around our house.
At least I can lay in my bed and eat bon bons all day! (;
P.S. Is it just me, or were there a lot of those aforementioned letters in this post? Ouch!
