Mo 'Tussin

Ok, I've been taking care of sick people all week, hence my only posting goofy bar photos and adverse reactions to debate rhetoric. This is what's been happening in my house this week:

Lots and lots of boogers.

I've been wiping kid noses and administering Robitussin every four hours and refilling the humidifier when it empties out. Juliana, being that she's four years old and attending pre-school is probably going to be sniffling and coughing all season but poor Ava doesn't understand why her breathe-hole is pluggy and why Mommy keeps shoving tissue in her face all day long. She just doesn't get that I'm trying to help her! It is getting better now but we had a rough couple of days. We had such an awesome time last weekend that I knew I was going to have to pay for it somehow! The Channels show was great. Greg's band Seahorses was also great. Plus, I got to go out with Stephanie, sans kids, and not have to drive home at one in the morning for the first time in oh, THREE YEARS. Seriously, what is wrong with us? We've gone out a couple of times to concerts (Ani Difranco, Henry Rollins) but I always have to be back in the morning to watch the girls so I end up driving on 94 in the middle of the night with a big cup of coffee and slapping myself in the face every thirty seconds to stay awake. This time, however, Jason and I got a room at the Astor Hotel (and a babsittter- thank you Michelle!!) so we were actually able to hang out after the show and have a few drinks before getting a ride back to the hotel to sleep. And I slept until 9:30!! We also got a chance to stop by the Hi-Fi so Jason could check out Maddie and Juliana's art show. Me=Happy. I almost don't even care that I'm probably going to get sick now. In fact, I'm getting ready to unleash my army of compassion to liberate all the germs in my house.
