Good morning and sorry for neglecting you for a few days. We’re experiencing what you might call a surge of activity in our house. I don’t mean to by cryptic, but we may be in for some big changes (no, we’re not pregnant again) soon. So I apologize if I’ve failed the blog.
To the news:
So now we know this strain of the flu isn’t as bad as they thought it might be. In fact, what were’ finding out is that they didn’t know much of anything at all. We’ve now started calling this virus H-1 N-1 on the air, in large part because the Govt changed it’s terminology. This morning I got an email complaining that we’d caved, and saying they’d never watch us again.
So you can people some of the people some of the time but you can’t please all of the people all of the time…
Is that the way that one goes?
Anyway, the Marshalltown Schools will reopen tomorrow. That’s a reversal of a previous decision to close schools until the start of the next week.
Amazing…that’s what I thought about the face transplant doctors performed at a Cleveland Clinic. The before and after photos are shocking. I also have to admire the way the woman faced the process and the prospect of multiple, painful surgery. She’s not done yet, but the applications of this surgery and what they learn really have to potential to make a difference for people who would otherwise live disfigured.
I want to thank some of you who read this daily for your kind notes checking in on my family. We are doing really well. Both of the boys are healthy an, most of the time, happy.
We’re getting ready for our first big road trip….that should be interesting. SO far we’ve only ventured out for a few hours so we didn’t have to feed them. We’re testing boundaries every time we go out though. We kept the boys out long enough to have to feed them Sunday. That meant an entirely different set of supplies to bring on the road. We had a really nice lunch at Gateway out in the Village at Ponderosa. What a great place. I hope they can survive.
These are pictures from that day.
What do you do when someone you don’t know or don’t know very well requests to be a friend on Facebook? You don’t want to be rude, but I’d really like to keep the number of people I communicate with on this thing down as much as possible. So if you ignore the request, they know you don’t want to be friends with them. What if you see them out then? Someone post a solution.
Have a goodone
