I took Tim out this morning to shop for Ben's birthday presents, and we ended up at the tire shop getting a flat off and a new tire on. Oy. We did get our shopping done before lunch, though, and then hurried home for food. I need to start eating bigger snacks 'cause I was shaking while putting together easy wrap sandwiches...

Later we'll make birthday cake. One set of grandparents is coming tomorrow afternoon for a visit, then I'll make sure Ben has a fun time Monday while Hubby's at work and Tim is at school. (Playgroup in the morning, something fun for lunch, etc.)

I'm hoping we'll be over our cold pretty soon. Mostly just fatigue for all and some coughing from the kids, but it's keeping us close to home for the weekend. My parents will fit in a makeup birthday visit later in the month so my mum doesn't get really sick from our germs.

Sorry I have been MIA lately. I have been busy with work and other things. When is Ben's birthday? My mom's birthday was Sunday and mine and Andrew's birthday is tomorrow. But we won't be able to really celebrate our birthdays till Wednesday because we both work. We're having lunch at Andrew's parents house and then we're going out for dinner and a movie in the evening. Funtimes! lol I hope you and your family will be feeling better soon. I know a lot of people are sick around here due to the consistent weather change.

Welcome back! :D Very cool to share a birthday! Have a great one!

Ben turned 3 today, though he wants to insist he's just 2. Oh well, that's my contrary guy, saying and doing things differently than you want. ;)

I took him to playgroup this morning and we stayed almost 3 hours, a long time for me not to be cleaning and getting things done at home! We also had a quick library visit before supper at McDonald's, then cake at home and new Play-Doh fun.

Happy Birthday Ben!  Hope he had a fun birthday.  Yesterday (4th) was my dil's birthday too.  We'll see her tonight when we plan to drive through a huge Christmas light display at the park near their house in St Louis.

I'm still going to the chiro 3x a week, icing my back daily, and being frustrated that I can't walk for more than 20 min or so without sitting down...but these things take time...my dh is helping out so much with shopping, cooking, etc.

Still trying to change my siggy in  ivillage.  Will test it now.

Keep hanging in there with the back recovery! I'd mostly forgotten about changing siggies when I had sign-in problems. I'm just glad to see and respond to messages, but it'll be nice to switch things up eventually. I think I have some nice winter siggies from last year.

Hey, I can get here and post from Firefox again! Yay! That means more opportunities at daytime chatting with the desktop. Love my laptop, but there's just something about sitting at our larger monitor and having a lot more storage space on the drive... Maybe the keyboard and trackball have something to do with my love. ;)

Since I used Quick Reply, let me give a summary of my Thursday morning in a separate post. Had to take the car in for new winter tires because of a flat on the weekend and wanting to be safe with all tires new and not just one of them! Where we live, it's super important to have great tires for the season (and we're supposed to put them on in October and leave them till May so we're good for highways and mountain passes all around us). Ben and I wandered around the mall while this was done, then we needed to buy some groceries once we had a trunk to put them in! Now he's snoozing and I've got lunch ready for him. Should get some dishes washed, too.

Sorry about the flat but glad you got your new tires for the winter.  Does Ben like looking at the mall?

Still the same siggy for me, when is ivillage going to work right again?!

Ben was better than I expected at the mall, and the car was ready just about the time I was thinking he needed a change of setting. :)

Hang in there, computer code is tricky stuff but it'll all come out nicely in the end. I think your flower siggy brightens up the thread in the meantime. :)
