Worst Case Scenario

Pequita has a stomach bug. So far we've had to wash puke off her car
seat, the back seat cover, many surfaces of my car, every article of
clothing we've all had on today, and as of the last hour, all the
bedding on the master bed. We are all in the living room watching the
Project Runway marathon and waiting for the kids to fall asleep and
the laundry to cycle through. We're going to need more ginger ale
before this is over. If anyone is driving by and could throw some on
the front porch, we'd appreciate it. Last time this happened, Monito
followed his sister, then I succumbed, finally H-Mama. Yuck.

I just want to let you know that you have one very adoring reader out here. I would love to drop off some ginger ale but unfortunately I'm about 3,000 miles away. I was on the IVF connections les board way back when you were trying for M, and have been reading your blog ever since you started it. It makes me want to pick up my 8-yr-old and move to your town -- such a better environment for kids than L.A.! Anyway, I don't think I've ever left a comment before but I wanted to say THANKS and Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.

Oh, my, that is very sweet, Debi. Thanks for commenting and the kind thoughts. I felt better enough that I took the kids out yesterday to shop, and stocked up for the next bout of sickness, may it not come for many months.

I'd love to *visit* L.A., but in spite of the 7 inches of snow [or because of it, in my case] and 25 mph winds we are experiencing right now, I still love it here.
