The Joys Of A Head Cold

Head Cold, noun: A common cold mainly affecting the mucous membranes of the nasal passages, characterized by congestion, headache, and sneezing. That's me on the phone, except when I speak no one can understand me because my nose is so plugged. The good news is that the faucets attached to the boys noses have stopped running freely and we can now move about our day without a supply of Kleenex. The boys were super excited because today is pop can recycle day! That's when our stash of pop cans becomes so big it's a nuisance to step over on the back porch. The boys take great pride in carrying the garbage sacks of pop cans to the recycling guy. Even more fun for them is that he is deaf, so he signs, and they totally dig it! Today we made $3.60! Woo-hoo! It goes into our Disneyland Fund. We'll be able to go to Disneyland in approximately 25 years at this rate! :-) The pop can adventure was followed up by a visit to grandma's office. Grandma Patti keeps cookies in a special drawer. The boys think this is a huge treat and want to go to grandma's office all the time! After a great nap, we visited the library and played outside for an hour or so. Exhausted as they are, they are in their room antagonizing each other, not by hitting or biting, but with words. All I hear is Josh saying, "Stop please, WAAAAHHHHH." And Thomas responds by singing a song, which apparently Joshua dislikes. Ah the joy of having a sibling and sharing rooms! I'm off to watch P.S. I Love You (thanks for letting me borrow it Kim and Greg, I'll be crying all night long!).
