Some Things We Learned This Past Week

Listen to the Red Cross workers and DO NOT do anything strenuous after giving blood. Big Daddy almost croaked last week during his weekly bike ride, even though they took a much “easier” ride than usual.

The internet is your friend when looking to solve a problem. I have not seen a creepy piss ant since I washed my counter down with white vinegar and sprinkled it with bay leaves and cloves. The vinegar stunk, and the new decor looks funky but so far, no ants.   *NOTE: See Update on previous post*

Sharing popcorn with a friend can lead to strep throat. I’m sure the friend didn’t know she had it at the time, but when Youngest Son got the worst sore throat EVER, and then later found out that the girl who’s popcorn he finished two days before had strep, well, we didn’t have to go to med school to figure that one out.

Having one extra person home generates about 20 extra pounds of laundry a week.

Two weeks flies by like a day when your son is on leave and has to go back to Iraq for another 4 months. Those 4 months will drag on like a year.

    And now I have it. Plus a head cold. And my roommate seems to have it, but he claims it’s only when I’m nearby. Maybe people are allergic to me. =/

    Crap. But do you really think it’s strep? Cuz if so, you better make them give you antibiotics–but I don’t think you were here when he had the strep–and none of us got it so maybe it’s just a bad sore throat that is part of the head cold. And maybe you’re just allergic to your roommate! Get better!!!
