bench monday the infirm jack-o-lantern edition...
or happy jacks.
we just cannot kick these germs in our home..
kellen seems almost 100%, but casey has had a relapse and now hives (she almost always gets hives when a bad virus grabs her. poor thing) and now i got it. i mean really what did i expect when i slept with, wiped noses of, got coughed on by, the little people i love in my home for the past 2 plus weeks. i drank LOTS of oj and took my vitamins and drank water and washed my hands a lot, i was just bound to lose the battle. so here i sit, puffs plus lotion is my new best friend. (for real, how did i live 36 years without lotion in my tissues???) i clearly remember the chaffing and chapping that blowing your nose usually brings, so THANK YOU puffs! i wasn't feeling inspired to jump on a bench at all, but then i remembered the sad looking jack-o-lanterns sitting on our stoop which are destined for the trash man tomorrow. they are quite slimy, rain logged, and growing some serious mold inside. i figured they deserved one last hurrah before they go. so here we are, all looking a little bit infirm. happy monday everyone.
