We have an expression that we use anytime we encounter any of the children being greedy and/or selfish. Unfortunately we use it more than we'd like and this past week we should have abandoned it altogether!!! That expression is, "we are a SHARING family!" Wish I'd never heard, let alone uttered , it ever in my life!! You see we are such a sharing family that for the past couple of days most of us have looked like this........ Since there was an obligation on my part to be the Room Mom in charge of the third grade Holiday Party on Friday, I spent a day or two looking like this... Must have been a serendipitous combination of chemicals in the dose I took before the party because I was informed by the teacher and class that it was a "great" party and that I was a "fun Mom"....weird but I'm soooooo not the fun Mom type that I'm a bit worried just how under the influence of Afrin I must have been on Friday?!?!?! I'm sooooooo NOT showing you pictures of the red rimmed eyes and raw inflamed nose...thus the cartoons! Just thought I'd let you know that I will be looking a lot like this for the next day or so..... because I loooooooove my hot tub and even if it doesn't actually cure me it will make me feel like things are better. AND I NEED BETTER....because I'm only about half-way through my shopping and the Mahoney side of the family has their big Christmas bash with Santa and all....TOMORROW! On a positive note, Julia appears to be on the upswing side of the virus and given the same timeline as her's, the rest of us should be viable by Christmas. No one need burst that bubble of hope I have by reminding me that Julia is the youngest in the family and thus most likely to rebound quickly...besides, my eyes are so watery I wouldn't be able to read it anyhow!
