It's a good day for hot chocolate, even Gretel agrees. 2 kids home sick and me downing vitamin C like they were uppers, downers, advil? Pick your poison. 2 kids in their own beds asleep by 9 -yee ha! Too bad I am too tired to enjoy this feat. So yes, this is a picture of our labradoodle Gretel with her stuffed hot chocolate. The main reason for posting this was to see if I could actually get a picture on my blog. Now that I know how, watch out! The girls and I watched Hairspray today with John Travolta as the mom. If you haven't seen it, you have got to, if only to watch John Travolta play a woman 150lbs heavier than himself. I find myself staring at him and cracking up imagining what it must have been like to play opposite him. Yes, I can sing all the songs too. I am a sucker for a good musical. Does anyone have any advice on how to take care of canker sores? K has a huge one and other than the hot chocolate, spent the day only being able to down frappes. Poor little thing.
