It's a great day to be out and about, doing something. Unfortunately, two of four family members are sick and home-bound. That translates to about a 50-50 chance of having any fun. When the weather lady on TV says that there is a 50-50 chance of rain, you just know that it's not going to happen. That is the story of my life today. I'll probably end up making some Red Velvet Cupcakes, from a recipe that I got at a cupcake class last week. If I don't end up eating all of them, maybe I can sell some at our street corner. (I'm sorry. Did I say weather lady? I meant meteorologist lady. No, I think I meant weather person.)
I already went out to get my wife's car washed, and the air freshener that they sprayed is still making me sneeze. I don't what they sprayed in the car, but I just know that it wasn't the 'new car smell' that I had requested. Now the scent is all over my clothes and I'll probably have to change. I also stopped at Target to get some kind of sniffly nose medicine that I will have to bribe my daughter to take. For some reason, neither daughter likes to take pills, and they just start to cry when I bring up the subject. "If you're really sick," I say, "why wouldn't you want to take any medicine to help you feel better?" Does anyone else out there have to buy the kid's liquid medicine and do the fancy calculations to properly dose the older kids?
