Another quick update before I go off to bed: Jessica’s been sick the past 2 weeks … started with that flu bug that’s been going around, and now she has an ear infection. Dr. prescribed some antibiotics, Jess hates the stuff — getting her to take her medicine is an uphill struggle. Plus she’s got this “pitiful little sick girl” routine down pat, LOL.
We had put off getting Christmas decorations out until she started feeling better, so we finally got to it today. Granted she whined the whole time, and went to sleep before we were done. (awwww)
She’s pitiful when she’s sick … and a bear to deal with (like I’m any better!). It’s funny how kids can be so trying, then just melt your heart in an instant. On a semi-sorted side note, some of you might find this amusing. I found it while looking up vampire news. (hehe)
Other news: once again, I’ll say it. I hate BellSouth, or should I say, BellSloth. My internet service was out for about a week and a half … and to make a long story short, every time I’d call, I’d be given a different excuse and time frame on when it would be up. It ranged from “about 30 minutes” to “sometime next week, we’re not sure” … ARGH!!!
I can cope with my internet being out (well, not really … but I had to!), but what really burned me was the incompetence of BellSloth’s support staff — one rep in particular was a condescending rude little twit who desperately needed to have his cranium extracted from his posterior.
But I digress …
The holidays are finally here. I spent a stress-free Thanksgiving (with the exception of my internet being out, grr!) for the first time in years. My parents had gone to Hawaii to see the Alabama vs. Hawaii game. We spent Thanksgiving with Jim’s father. We ate a lot of food, played computer games, and watched a lot of football … life is good!
I’m off to see my parents tomorrow (wish me luck). I have been putting it off for a while due to many factors, mainly I didn’t want to fight with my dad. On the other hand, I miss the relationship I used to have with my mother. The past 2-3 years have damaged our relationship and sometimes I wonder if we’ll ever be as close as we were before? I guess only time will tell.
Anyways, it’s nearly midnight now and I’m pooped. Another quick cute thing I’ve picked up: Limecat.
