Hi guys…you are not going to believe this. I am sick. Again. No, I’m not joking…trust me I would not joke about this. Last night Smalls covered me in vomit last night and I wake up this morning to find myself nauseous and all stopped up again, complete with massive headache and chills. I just do not feel well enough to do all the work it takes to get ready to be on video. I’m sorry guys. It sucks, but you don’t want to hear me whine (hear not read, of course you want to read it) right now. I figure today I’ll make up for it by “chatting” with ya’ll this way.
Late last week we got 6 inches of that gorgeous fluffy stuff…but we didn’t go out and enjoy it. OH no. I was not going to take the chance of taking the girls out and exposing them to any germs. Lotta good that did me huh? Sigh. Bigs went back to school today hallelujah after three weeks off. This evening I was looking through the work she brings home from school and noticed in a series of sentences where she was to use “action verbs” she wrote: “I am blogging.” Warmed my heart a little…but also made me awful glad she didn’t write “I am Tweeting“, I would never had heard the end of it.
Tomorrow I will be sharing my grandmother’s recipe for chili (without a photo at first) on Tasty Tuesday. With weather as cold as it has been, I have been craving chili intensely. We use spaghetti noodles and beans in our chili…I know there are as many ways to make chili as there nationalities on Earth. I like mine especially spicy, but can’t add the spices until after I have separated some for the girls. How do you like your chili?
Oh! And there is an update to my bloggy schedule: Rather than taking Thursdays off I’m moving my off day to Fridays. I tried it last week and by the time Friday rolls around I am sick and tired of getting up at 5am to write .
Also, with so many great conferences happening in February I must get a haircut this weekend! Must. I’m starting to look like one of those scary moms…hair all shaggy and such. I have one of those haircuts that requires a trim every 3 weeks to keep it looking hawt. Due to budgeting strategies, it has now been over 6 weeks. It looks really rough, seriously. I would be embarrassed to be seen by my buddies, brands, or Harry Connick Jr. with my current hair-do.
Did I mention something about conferences? Why yes, yes I did! Thanks to Katja Presnal, Skimbaco Lifestyle, and Tommy Nelson publishing I will be able to attend Blissdom with little impact on my family’s budget. I will have much more on the upcoming conferences and my wonderful sponsors this week…I want to give each sponsor and conference the kind of attention they deserve.
I guess that should be it for now…it’s bedtime for the kiddos and I’m having chills now. All I want is to feel better for an extended amount of time. This being sick over and is getting old.
And as always, I am looking for posts from the Internetz that will leave me a little smarter than I am today:)
Ya’ll leave me some feedback and some links of posts I just can’t miss!!
