Hi all! You won’t believe this, but we learned at DD’s doctor’s appointment today that she’s got pneumonia. HA! I was told last week that this may happen, but aside from a cough she’s been back to normal. Well, the right side of her chest is infected. She started on another course of antibiotics this afternoon and will be out of school until Friday when she goes to see the doctor again….hopefully for the “all clear”!! Yikers!
I needed a quick breakfast today because DS had early morning practice and I had to go pick him up. I decided that it would be the perfect opportunity to have a bowl of the Nature’s Path banana almond cereal I bought Saturday;
This was amazing and very filling. I loved it! Those people at Nature’s Path know what they’re doing!
After dropping DS off at school DD and I went to Wal Mart to pick up a few Christmas things. (Remember…at this point I was sure she would get a green light at the doctor!!) Among the few things I bought was Twilight for $8.00! Is that a steal or what? When we got home we borrowed KC and took him for a walk down to the drug store so I could mail my over sea Christmas cards. While we were walking it started to snow! Actually, there’s suppose to be a big storm blowing in this Wednesday. Brrr…
Next up was the doctor, then the pharmacy. I had some time until I had to get DS from school so I played on the computer and did a few loads of laundry. I was hungry by the time 3:30 rolled around so I had a piece of vegan banana carob nut bread with chocolate honey for a snack.
I had bought a pound of ground bison when we were at Whole Foods a week ago and my hubby requested that I make burgers with it tonight. Sounded like a plan to me! I combined the meat with some onion, fresh parsley, panko crumbs, egg white and various seasonings. They were ready for the grill when the grill master arrived home from work. I loaded mine up with goat’s milk brie, mango wasabi mustard, mayo, pickles, tomato and lettuce. Check this baby out!
I bought that Glade candle today. It’s apple cinnamon scented and boy does it smell delightful!
We just got back form the kid’s Christmas concert. My sister came over to hang back with DD who was not at all happy about having to miss out. Poor kid! Once I finish here I’ll be catching up on a few magazine’s that came in the mail today seeing as there seems to be nothing but repeats on the TV these days.
