The bug has been squashed!


OK, well maybe not completely squashed..but I've gone to the doctor, and he gave me meds..seems I have bronchitis and a sinus infection..a 'double-header'..

But, froggy-sounding that I was, I went to work today. That's the bad thing about liking your job..you really do miss it where you're gone and they are there..

Damn those fun co-workers!

Great problem to have, huh? Yeah, I am very lucky..and grateful ..

Big plans this week-end? My littlest son is having his birthday...he's um...420 months old..

Yeaaahh..that's 35 YEARS old....Oh, and when do we stop telling people our kid's ages in months?
12 months? 18 months? 24 months?
anyway, he was obviously born when I was like, 5, right?

..and he's 6'2"..not so little..

I remember when he was a skinny, knocked-kneed goofy kid who love his Smurfs and GI Joe..

OK, so the Smurfs went away, but he was actually on CNN for his GI Joe collection..

A whole room full of GI Joes...



Yeah...that's a lot of Joes!


And, I really do prefer that he took up with the Joes...instead of the Smurfs....




Yeeeeah...I think I really REALLY do prefer the Joes!

Happy Birthday Jeff!
XXOO, Mom

You had a room full of GI Joes? I had one of every single thing about StarWars .. characters, mobile anythings, nuts, bolts, scripts.....I wonder if he still has all that stuff. :)

Happy birthday to your son! I too turn 35 this year-in a couple months actually :)
So glad you are on the mend!

Did we discuss sons' birthdays last year? My son's is today! Though I have not yet figured out how many months old he is...wait, it's coming...420-36=whatever that is. How cool that he was featured on CNN for that pretty incredible collection.

You gotta love someone who likes Joes. Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Jeff!
Glad your feeling better. That is a wonderful collection he has. I really do like when people have a passion like that. Those Smurf people are kind of scary!

I am so glad that you are starting to feel better. A double-header? Yikes, glad you got meds for this nasty bug.

Happy Birthday to your son! What an amazing GI Joe collection! (I also prefer the 'flockheads' to the 'blueheads' LOL)
