It always seems to be a sign of sickness when I leave teabags dripping on the counter.

Unfortunately, today is no exception. The hoarse throat that I was convinced was from "talking too much" (which a gal with 3 little boys is prone to do when among adults all weekend), materialized into a full blown cold. Boo.

The Cold also snagged my two youngest sons. Double boo.

Kleenex, Mighty Machines DVD's, Ibuprofen, and a hot cup of tea have been my best friends today.

On the upside, I did manage to drag all the kids, stuffy noses and all, down to the County Courthouse to argue our vehicle registration taxes. We were so convincing, they waived the fees without much ado.

I also called Express Toll about a vehicle toll bill we received in the mail, saying that our vehicle went through the CO state toll way without paying the fine. Thankfully they understood that for this military family, Colorado was two moves ago and we sure weren't there on 12/30/10 at 3:46:21.

And, since the cold medicine I thought it a good idea to list random accomplishments, today I also had two Jehovah Witness' try to convince me that I wasn't going to heaven. After we discussed this at some length (while I stood in the doorway and froze), they decided to give me their "what the Bible really teaches" book and come back later to further work on this lost Christian woman (i.e. me). I'll be praying for them too, and look forward to the chance of  speaking with them about the real Way, Truth, and Life.

Anyway... I think it's time for another cup of tea. I'll try not to be so random again.

Oh, Kathryn! I am sorry you are feeling under the weather, and will pray for a speedy recovery for you and your boys. Keep smiling. Love you.
