January 2nd---I've made it 2 days!

Before the clock strikes 12 I thought I'd pop in to say I've now blogged on here for 2 days this year. 2 days in a row, even! Goodness, at this rate, I may be the next Pioneer Woman with a famous blog. Oh, wait, I forgot, she started with a wealthy rancher husband and can do all kinds of cool giveaways. Hmmmm, I could giveaway some used cookbooks. Oh, even better, some unwanted pounds! So, maybe I won't be the next Pioneer Woman. I'll enjoy reading her blog & trying to win things, though.

Last weekend (Christmas weekend) Natalie & I felt pretty yucky. We went to the doctors on Tuesday. My dr. said I was on the verge of a sinus infection & gave me some heavy duty new antibiotic. I felt horrible the next day, but by Friday I was feeling so much better. Today I have felt icky again, but I am on the mend.

The pediatrician (who happens to be a friend of mine) checked both girls (since B. was starting to feel icky, too) and said they weren't infected & lungs sounded good (Nat has had a time with her asthma the past few months), but gave us some potent cough syrup. They both seemed to improve until last night when Natalie went downhill fast. She woke me up at 5 a.m. with a fever and spent the rest of the day on the couch, taking ibuprofen to help her feel a bit better. I'll call Dr. Barbara back tomorrow & see if she wants to add anything.

Meanwhile, Phil seems to have developed a mega resistance system, which is really nice. I'm guessing that being in & out of clinics all the time exposes him to so much that his body has built up a good immunity. Never worked for me teaching kids who seemed to get sick all the time, but I have all sorts of auto-immune issues. He's been off the past week and has to go back to work tomorrow. He's NOT the work-aholic type. At all. Well, not in the "job" sense. He can obsess over certain things (like a computer problem that just doesn't want to resolve or working on a motorcycle engine) til the cows come home. Getting up early for work? Not his thing.

So, that's 2 days into the New Year. So far no one I know has been diagnosed with cancer THIS year. I do have a friend who was recently diagnosed from last year. So far we've paid bills (well, when the landlord is back in town & we give him the rent check, that will be true). So far, we have money in the plus side in the bank. So far, all of our living parents are doing well. So far, 2011 looks like a GREAT year!

Hope to be back on the 3rd!
