Why I’ve been MIA and a Mommy brag, too!

It has been raining here since Sunday night. I’m lucky if I get 10 minutes of internet service a day because of it. Gotta love living in the boonies and only have satellite internet service as an option. One freaking cloud in the sky means no service for me. So, I haven’t run away (yet), I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, and I’m not blowing anyone off. I’m just not able to get (and stay!) online.

I am feeling a bit better. I think Monday was the worst day, and I’ve gotten a little better every day since then. Still have a swollen nose, goopy eyes, and a nasty cough, but at least I can tell that I’m on the mend.

Lulu has slept all night long the past 2 nights. I’m really hoping this continues. Gene has started his new job, and I love his hours, so things are working out perfectly. If I could just get the boys to quit getting up at night.

Ok, time for my mommy brag! Yesterday for art class, I asked Zander to draw something that we’ve learned about so far in school. Here’s what he drew:

When I asked him to tell me about his picture, he said, “This is the world. ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.’ I don’t know what heaven looks like, but I know what the earth looks like, so I drew it.”

He asked if he could keep drawing, so he drew me a few more pictures:

This one cracks me up. Note the nipples and the washboard abs? He doesn’t miss a beat!

He’s certainly my little artist. I’m so proud!!

Thanks for letting me brag on him. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow, so I’m sure I’ll have more to update on then!

    Good, I am glad. Was worried you were in the hospital.
    I love Hulk.
    Are you up to two week appointments now? I don’t remember how it works.
