What's been going on this week (or how I traumatized my kid today)
- La gastro, also known as the stomach flu. It's hanging over my head like the sword of Damocles but I'm trying to be optimistic that all the hand-washing has paid off. My husband was hit hard and the baby currently seems to be recovering well. Am thinking the Japanese mask campaign would work pretty well here and wish it would catch on. Have done lots and lots of laundry.
- Woo hoo -- I finally have my 10-year residency card! Will not go into details because I think my fingers would bleed from all the pent-up resentment and frustration unleashed by typing. Now we'll just have to wait and see what other roadblocks the loan people will throw in our path before we can move into our new house WITH A YARD. (Ouch, that hurt...must calm down)
- My child is totally weirded out by Play-Doh. I thought it would be a special fun thing to do today, seeing as how we were both up all last night in less than desirable circumstances. But no, she hated the stuff despite my best efforts to show her how wonderful it is. Me: No, really, it's fun! Go ahead, squish it! Her: Ewwwwwww get it away from me, it's pliable and grooooooooosssssssss GOOD GOD WOMAN DON'T LET IT TOUCH MY FOOT run away run away! So, I guess I'll have the Food Factory to myself.
