It's 21 degrees outside, but with the wind chill it feels like 9.  My computer backs up to a window, and I am freezing even in sweats.  I'm not made for cold weather!

After leaving a message with the clinic on their voicemail that says they will call back in one hour, I had heard nothing.  I called back and they told me that they were too busy to check the voicemail.  Ummmm.....maybe you should change the message?  Junior screamed most of last night about hurting but couldn't really say where.  He started running a fever, and is passed out on the couch right now.  The H1N1 is going around here, so I am hoping that is not what it is.  He's a pretty easygoing kiddo, so it breaks my heart to see him hurt so much.  He keeps complaining that his head hurts.

Sammy, so far, is wonderful!  Last night he slept next to our bed in his new little doggy bed, and he didn't even stir when we had Junior in there screaming for an hour, all our trips to the bathroom, turn the heater up, see what Abs wanted, etc.  At one point I asked Gunner to make sure that he was breathing.  He sighed, did it, and assured me that dogs don't have SIDS.  Yeah, you can only imagine how I was with my kiddos.  Em used to peep and we would both fly across the bed to the bassinet.  I was a little bit better with Abs, and Junior was born while Gunner was deployed, so I just put him in bed with me.

It's been snowing off and on all day, and Sammy does not like it at all.  He hates to put his feet down, so Abs
stole commandeered a ball of yarn and some knitting needles and is trying to make him some booties.  Em wants to sew him a whole wardrobe.

.....Apparently Junior has the flu.  They said they wouldn't prescribe tamiflu, and then Gunner just produced the papers that they gave him, and it is all about H1N1.  Great!  I have too much homework to do this week to be sick.  I'll just lysol the whole house, wash all sheets and blankets again in hot, and sanitize every surface I see.  At least there is no need for the sick diet.....yet.  Anyone want to come visit?

I've got chili on the stove, the heater is cranked up, and I have Mamma Mia from Netflix for the evening entertainment after the kids go to bed.  I'll be singing Abba all night long with a puppy snuggled up on my feet.

I forget you are in Colorado now! I am here, too. And I feel you on the coldness. We were out earlier and slid all over the road b/c of the ice :(

21 degrees?! That is nuts! I'm glad about the dog and no so much about the flu.

I hope it goes away soon. And warms up a little.

Wow! 21 degrees! At least it's in the 50's here. I'm sorry to hear that he's sick! Hopefully it got caught early enough that everyone else wont get it!

Welcome to winter weather! We had a little snow yesterday - nothing that stuck but plenty to see. Dress warm and when it snows, hunker down all you can. That's the best way to deal with it!

The dog is adorable and you're so lucky he's so good!

I hope Jr feels better soon, poor guy. I can't decide if I'm hoping we get it before it has a chance to worsen or if I'm going to pray the dutchkid gets the vaccine before it gets us... it does seem to be everywhere :(
