Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired

Okay, seriously, can I be DONE blowing my nose every five minutes already? I feel like I've had a stuffed-up head since November and I'm ready to feel normal again. Whatever THAT is. I'm hoping it's something as simple as needing to change my allergy meds....later this week I'll pick up a bottle of generic Zyrtec and see if that helps. In the meantime, I think I'll just take DayQuil every few hours to keep from dripping snot on everything I see.

Needless to say, I have NOT gotten much done on the clay buttons.

Some randomness:

My brother Mark stopped by for a visit the other day.....and Jacob promptly attached himself at the hip. I think it's SO cute how much he loves his Uncle Mark. And he doesn't act that way around any of our other visitors. So bizarre!

We got a new pet rat over the weekend! His name is Pepsi Max, and he's the cutest little guy! He and Nicodemus are getting along quite well, but Max isn't sure what to think of us yet. I expect in a week or so, he'll be ready to come out and play with his new humans. :)

SO glad the kids went back to school today. They had a snow day on Friday, then MLK Jr day off yesterday....made for the longest weekend EVAH.

We were able to see our BIL Mark for a minute or two over the weekend....he's on his 2-week hiatus from Iraq, and his plane came in Sunday. We all met at IHOP for dinner, and a good time was had by all.

Some of us had a little TOO MUCH fun (ahem, Vikki)...

My layout for the current challenge over at Lotus Paperie (use a frame):

And this is my new etsy kit, "Love Blossoms," which I still need to list in my etsy shoppe!

All right, consider yourself updated! I'll try to remember if there's anything I've forgotten, but I'll need coffee first. :)

Have a happy Inaugeration Tuesday!!

Consider this an official protest. I liked the name Gus! Like the little mouse in Cinderella! Why would you name him after soda??

Hey, you know what? I don't think I've really been sick all winter!

Oh yeah - the rat... honestly he doesn't really look like a rat. So I guess what I'm saying (although I don't believe I am) is I think he's cute...and I like the name Gus too! But ya know Pepsi max is cool too ;0)
