Swine Flu, Candy Corn and Monkey Gyms....

Due to my battling the swine flu--Swine: 0 Chelle: 1--and winning, I'm all about the randoms tonite. Enjoy!

*I no longer feel like death. Which is always a plus in my book. However, Madelyn broke out with a fever today. Leo took her to the doc where she got prescribed with Tamiflu. Hoping that this is what Isabella and Leo had last week so they won't be next. What a week.

*I'm in love with Scrapblog. I made our Christmas cards yesterday and designed my twitter page. You could say that the Swine flu allowed me to stay in bed all day and be online...which I may have secretly enjoyed...

*Fall has arrived. Finally! It'll be in the 40's tonite and highs in the 60's tomorrow. I am in heaven and need to go and buy myself some fall clothes. Like asap. I won't be doing any shopping until next week, though. I would hate to still be contagious and risk getting others sick!

*Isabella has discovered the joy in Christmas catalogs. Girlfriend wants it all. For her and Maddie. She points out and tells me which is for Maddie and which is for her. Seriously cute. And seriously hard for me to say no to such cuteness.

*One of the things Isabella found was this monkey gym type of thing from One Step Ahead. Isabella showed me and then showed Leo who told her that it was pricey. She looked back down and said, 'pricey'. And looked a little longer before turning the page. So cute and I secretly want to buy it for her...even if it is a little 'pricey'...

*I've been craving a pumpkin spiced latte the entire time I've been sick. I haven't wanted much else except that. And orange juice. I am so heading to Starbucks on my get well shopping trip!

*Kind of grateful to the swine flu that it has curbed my cravings and inhaling of candy corn. I've even lost a couple of pounds. So, thank you swine flu for helping me out in that one department. Although I would have rather worked out to my 30 Day Shred dvd....


Well, that's all I can think of right now. I just wanted to post something of relevance to let y'all know what's been going on. Hoping nobody else catches this miserable flu, that's for sure.

Because it sucks.

Big time.

Well, I guess looking on the bright side, getting H1N1 means losing a few pounds, and for me that would be totally awesome!
In all seriousness, glad you're feeling better and I hope your little girl recovers quickly, too! What a nasty flu this is!

At least you can look on the brightside.I could use the swine flu to lose a few pounds. I kid, I kid, knock on wood!! Please dont let me get the swine flu!

Awwww poor thing. Chloe totally wants everything in the world. She has a list. She just had a birthday and everything she says is mommy I want this OK? OK? I say ok Chloe add it to the list.

For her birthday She got this:

She was so stoked that my family got her stuff on her list, yes alittle spoiled... but there was one thing on the list a guitar! Yes a guitar noone got it. Cuz dang those things are expensive LOL..

So sucky for you Chelle, but I'm happy that you are able to keep us updated and surviving the flu stuff.

I love it when kids say adult stuff like 'pricey'. ;)

I am so glad that you are feeling better! Glad that Maddie got some Tamiflu - that stuff seriously kicks the pigs but!

I will have to check out scrapblog. I have an itch for some Digital creating.

Every commercial Carter sees with a toy on it he wants. I wish he would just tell me the things he really likes rather than it all. I have no idea what we are going to get him for Christmas. He is usually so easy to shop for.
