Sick day

The boys are home. Joey was complaining of tummy trouble yesterday, so I went and got him from school. That came with a nasty fever that broke early this morning. Now I just have two sniffle-heads. OK, we really have all four of us sniffling, but I'm the mom, and poor Allan had to go to work. :P

So I have two sniffleheads. They feel OK enough to want to play, but they get tired out easy and that makes them grumpy. So instead of getting them up and down the stairs, I have left them in their pajamas, and brought breakfast upstairs.

Now, I am not a gadget woman, nor a big TV viewer. My husband, however, is all over it. When he got his nice, big bonus this year (because he is an awesome worker and got awesome reviews), we got ourselves our anniversary present: an Apple TV. I was unsure how this gadget would be any better than the other gadgets we have, but it made him happy, and that was the important thing. But now, I would just like to say, thank you, JoeyAndyDad, for our AppleTV. We have spent a deliciously restful morning in the bedroom, tucked into Mommy and Daddy's bed, watching Oobi on the fancy TV. The boys are getting much-needed rest, we've only had one whining spell, and everybody is happy. We are sipping our juice boxes, no one has waxed, and we have smiling faces, despite still having fevers and sniffles.

Now I just need to find a couple pairs of google-eyes for two boys who want to play Oobi...

Well, I'm glad no one's waxed so far! Oobi looks interesting; I'll bet you can find the eyes somewhere like Michaels or A.C. Moore.
