Monday Craziness

Bubba is sick. He stayed home today and has mainly slept, thank God. He's being an ok patient this time, he's usually a big baby about it, but he's actually listening to Nurse Katie and taking his medicine.

I, also, have a sniffle, which I am putting down to allergies, as I have no fever or aches like Bubba does. Only the sneezes that occasionally throw me into fits. It's no fun. I bought 10 boxes of Kleenex at the store, just in case this lasts a while.

Speaking of the store, it is CRAZY in that place on Monday! I usually wait and go on Tuesday, as that's usually when the freshest goods are in, but I think Monday is the day of the best sales. I don't have a lot of space for storing extra food, so I usually don't go in for the 10/$10 steals (except on the Kleenex this time), I will only buy a few of the sale items, mainly what I need. What can I say, no storage in NYC has scarred me. Anyway, I'm glad I left the Munchkin at home with Daddy (with strict instructions NOT to touch him unless absolutely necessary!), because it would have taken me much longer.

Speaking of the Munchkin, he is thankfully NOT affected by our sniffles. He had a fever on Friday, way before Bubba ever showed any symptoms, but since then, nada. Not yet, anyway. The only thing I forgot at the store was the jumbo-size hand-sanitizer with pump feature. Might be nice to stave off the germies over the next few days. Oh well, I think of it as just strengthening his immune system.

It's the first time I've been sick since Feb. 2003. I'm not a weenie.

You know you don't have to buy 10 things to get the deal, right? You can buy one for a dollar? Just checking.

A favorite quote of our nanny: "When the father is sick, there are TWO babies in the house"

I was gonna say what Pigs said. You don't have to buy 10 items to get that price.

And yes, you are a weenie, Bubba. But I love you anyway.

Um, I know that you don't have to buy all of them, friends. In fact, I usually don't. But considering I've already gone through a box of Kleenex in a day, and they are usually $2 a piece, I stocked up.

Thanks for looking out for me, but I'm no sale-rookie!q
