Luckily Abs still goes to a civilian doctor, so my mom was able to convince them to call in a prescription for Ab's worm problem. I talked to the pharmacist and the doc put in a refill. Thank goodness. She said the worms probably didn't clear up from the first time since they only gave Abs one dose. Time will tell. I'm so grossed out, that I hope this is the last time we have to go through this.

I got an email from Ab's teacher today:

I’m sorry to inform you that I had to write Abs up this morning. While I was testing another student at my U table my students should have been finishing up their writing from Wednesday morning. During this time Abs chose to exclaim “Prepare for war!” She proceeded to throw a pencil at another student. The pencil hit the other student’s arm. Thankfully the other student is un-harmed.
I’m sorry that we had to start the morning this way. Expect a phone call from the office.

I shouldn't laugh, but I imagined it being totally quite, everyone hard at work, and "Prepare for war!" being yelled out by my daughter. She ended up getting D-hall during lunch. Maybe they should make that permanent since she wasn't there to cause a riot at the lunch table or ask people if certain words are part of the English language.

Remember the cupcakes that I went out for late at night? Well Em brought 9 of the 12 back. I told her she should have stood over her friends and made them eat all of them!

And Junior??? He thinks he is a cat--he meows and everything. I used to think I needed to breed like crazy to make sure the world is full of sane people--now I am thinking it is a good thing we stopped because maybe we are contributing to the problem?

I know, I shouldn't laugh either, but I did :)

Jr. is like Abs was when she was younger, I remember her growling at me over the telephone when we were in W'ville. D said he used to scream at him over the phone.

I'm with you and Susan. It's like you pictured it - complete silence and then "prepare for war!" It's too funny.

My niece, who is now a beautiful 22 year old on the verge of graduating from college, spent a great deal of her childhood on her hands and knees because she was a horse. No more hands and knees - she's got a real one to play with.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Isn't it great what happens when the men are away? I'm not a military wife, but I am a firefighters wife, which leaves me with a part-time husband...;) I'm just a little curious. Why does Abs get OT and PT. I have an 11yr old that needs the same. I know what a toll all those appts can take on Mom. Happy holidays.
