Sick babies. Sick mommy. Zycam is my friend today. I went to bed at 8:00 last night. The children were in bed at 7:15. Slept good. Now, I'm laying in the bed, watching Maroon 5 on A&E while the boys are playing Gamecube. I periodically hear dog-like barking coughs from the baby, who's almost better.
I like Maroon 5. I think I may put them on my playlist. They remind of my last girl beach trip with Anita, Angie, Laura, and Paige. We listened to Maroon 5 and the soundtrack from the movie "Shall We Dance?" predominantly. Paige and I were pregnant with Carson and Felix. That was a good trip. I remember when we watched "Shall We Dance?" that everybody loved the leading man. Doggone it, what's his name? Pretty Woman guy. Huge liberal activist. I think Maroon 5 is distracting me. RICHARD GERE. Anyway, I don't really like him much. I like Gerard Butler.
Did you forget? Though I do like him (Mr. Gere) in Chicago. Great movie. It's a musical, too. I miss going on the beach trips, even though I only went on two. We basically had no plan of attack, no schedule, just a 'do what you want to do-it's your vacation' kind of time. It's so much fun to go to the beach with a group of women. Get a group of women to go anywhere for more than an afternoon or evening and they turn into teenagers or, at best, girls who are in college. Actually, when a group of us celebrated Heather Davis' birthday, we were gone for most of the day (eating, shopping, laughing, singing in the car, and, in general, behaving like we were 18 years old). Here are some of my favorite pictures of that day.
I love having good friends. That was a great day. It's very good for me to do something with a group of women. That cake was divine, too.
Maybe I'll watch Phantom in a bit. It's been since Thursday that I've seen it. I wished I had brought it to Crissy's yesterday because we would've watched it. There's nothing on TV this morning. Drumline's on TBS, infomercials on lots of channels, Trading Spaces on TLC (I do not like that show), boring, boring, boring. I almost want to get out of bed. Almost. Flip. Flip. Flip. Yeah, I think I need to get up.
Well, I do have plenty to do this morning, even though I'm plugged up. Having some old friends over for dinner (won't they be glad when they get a cold from us in three days?) and I promised her a pecan pie. Have a good Sunday.
