As Luck Would Have It, I'm Not Dead Yet.

I have been fight off something. It consists of a stomach thing, a stuffy nose, a headache, all over aches and pains,a fever, but as my luck would have it, it hasn't killed me...yet.

I did not go to work today and I didn't have the strength to feed, dress and take the children to school, so they stayed with me. (Mother of the year, RIGHT HERE!!)

I do have to say that Emerson was the best thing to have with me, that is if I can't have 24 hour nursing care.

The way she acted today, makes me believe that there is hope for my older feeble years. She made her and Vivi sandwiches. She made me "coffee" which was chocolate milk in a tea cup.

She let me take a nap and then put Vivi and herself in the tub. Washed hair and then got out and got Vivi and herself into pjs.

I was so impressed, that I texted Matt and he brought her home a present. She got herself a brand new Webkin. And just to make me feel better, he brought me one too.

I am so glad she is turning out to be a kind and considerate person, because frankly, I had my doubts.
