. . . and because of that AWESOME benediction!!! "when brown can stick around"??? -- that was great :)
My sister was telling me about a sign, or bumper sticker that she saw that she just loved. I liked the first three lines of it, but the last line was a bit anti-climatic. Anybody have a good ending for it? it goes like this:
Rosa Parks sat so that
MLK could stand so that
Obama could run so that
________ can ______
Now on to the "pink." We have had pink eye going around our house for the past 11 days. It started with me and my AWFUL sinus infection that had kept us in the house for 5 days before the outbreak. So my sinus infection led to my conjunctivitis (pink eye)
which, 2 days later led to Eliza's pink eye, which, 3 days later led to Abby's pink eye, which, 2 days later led to Grace's pink eye, which, 2 days later led back to Eliza re-getting pink eye!!! My poor baby just finished her 7-day antibiotic ointment treatment, and 2 days later got it again!!!
Just shoot me now, somebody. Cause Abby's still hasn't cleared up, Eliza's got it now--we're honestly just going to keep giving it back and forth to each other for the rest of our lives!!!!! At least Grace's went away with a very simple home remedy that my dear friend, Sarah, introduced us to (which unfortunately didn't work for her sisters). Putting in that ointment is the most dreaded thing of my day. i have to pin Abby down (kicking, screaming, spitting, biting, etc) FOUR TIMES A DAY just to get that stuff in her eyes--for SEVEN DAYS!!!! Even Eliza really mastered the dodging of the ointment!!
We haven't seen our friends, been to church, or basically left the house since we got back from Christmas break! Luckily my girls have been pretty sweet, Eliza's 2nd tooth is all the way thru (which means i'm sleeping at night again), the weather's been REALLY nice, we have a fantastic backyard, and really we're not totally going crazy yet...but it's about to happen, i can feel it. And i really don't know how to get this out of our systems!! Does anybody out there have ANY advice besides burning our house down or living in bubbles????
