On a lighter front though, after not seeing his big brother most of the day, Callum started giggling like crazy just at the sight of Aidan.
Our lab had to have is ear 'Quilted' because of it filling up with blood. He was uncomfortable but didn't have to have the collar.

Did Aidan go to school for the first time yesterday and Callum miss him?

I remembered to make a healthy lunch last night to take to work today and didn't have to go out for yet another gut-bomb.

Thanks Expatgirl! I am glad to just be getting a change of scenery, even if it is just for 4 days, I haven't been home in a year and a half so I am dying to get back.

My dear friend just called and told me this story about her little boy. Last year she was dating a guy and her boy was in the backseat of the boyfriends car and they stopped at DQ to get icecream. Well the little boy got himself a Blizzard and when they got home she discovered blizzard all over the floor and some on the seat. The little boy wouldn't disclose what happened and the mom cleaned it up.
Well yesterday she took him to DQ and he ordered himself a Blizzard but when the sales person handed him the cup he saw the words on it and he said, "Oh no I'm not falling for that one again"! The cup said.........Turn your Blizzard Upside Down"...................

SizzlinIN--That didn't bring a smile to my face that made me LOL!! Reminds me of the beginnings of some Texas Aggie jokes (which I am one): Similar to the Blizzard cup--- Did you hear about the Aggie who walked down the sidewalk, saw the sign "Wet Cement" and so he did??? I know----baaaaaaaaad! Her story was great because it's true and she really ought to submit it to Reader's Digest's "Life in the USA"!!

The years first batch of zucchini bread is minutes away from being taken out of the oven. The house smells good!
