I don't see any point

in spending the extra 75 cents buying the "Marie Calendar's chicken pot pie" when you could just get the Banquet one. They taste about the same. They are probably made at the same plant just boxed up differently. Ya know, like lunch meat. It's all the same thing.

This is my first day back since the "stomach bug." I'm so glad I'm better. It was awful. First time in almost 4 years that I've been SICK. I was too sick to watch my boys. It only lasted 24 hours, but have you thought about how many minutes there actually are in 24 hours??? It's a ton! And hurting for almost all of those minutes? It's bad. I may be a little bit dramatic when I'm sick (I like to groan). But it is always warrented. Mike called a sitter over for the day. I left the bedroom twice all day and just cause I was bored.

Today I woke up feeling absolutely fine --with about 25% of my normal energy.

The boys went to MDO. I checked them up and down for any trace of sickness. I didn't see any. I don't believe in sending sick kids to public places where other kids can get sick. It's just not nice. I'm really hoping my boys don't come down with this cause I'll feel bad that I exposed other kids.

I've been washing sheets and door nobs today. I also went to the Commisary (grocery store on base) for food. Jack asked me this morning if I would please go to the store and buy some more bananas. I told him I would.

I love seeing how his reasoning power is improving:
I'm hungry --> I want a banana -->
There are no bananas in the bowl --> We must be out of bananas -->
Where can I get a banana --> Mom gets them at the store -->
I'll ask her to go buy some.

It's great. Gotta watch that kid though.
