Sick and Bored
Jake, Kate and I are sick this weekend. Here's my self-diagnosis, courtesy of the internet.
Cryptosporidiosis which we think might be related to an outbreak from pools in Utah: http://www.abc4.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=a7c6a00f-0900-4cb8-9dc0-407a2dda769f
It's pretty much a severe case of the runs. The kids won't eat and I feel awful and haven't had anything but Gatorade and crackers since Friday night. But on the bright side, I get to lounge around all weekend marching my way through Gilmore Girls season 4, finishing The Scarlet Pimpernel and finding other ways to keep me occupied as I stay within 10 yards of the toilet at all times.
Today is Sunday and I watched a DVD of the celebration for the 2004 rededication of the Sao Paulo Temple in Brazil. I served my mission there, oh, a decade ago, and LOVE the people there. I just about bawled my eyes out when all the missionaries marched into the stadium, Olympic style, waving the Brazilian flag.
Then I decided to do Kate's hair. I'm used to the "squirt and go" kind of hair, with two boys, so
this is foreign to me. I copied my friend Jenny, who always does her daughter Katie's hair so darling. So here it is...Kate's first official hairdo!
I know, she has pitiful amounts of hair but hey, I've been excited about this since the ultrasound in January 2006. The downside...I'm going to have to get up at 6:00am to pull this off for church.
Check out that profile!
Jake just informed me that he "didn't want this kind of baby."
"Because she steals my things and cries all the time!"
She is being a pill, although she sat still for the hairdo(?) C'mon, she is starving. Not to mention Jacob is pretty ornery himself. Hope we all get better soon!
