It's been a whirl-wind of a week. The four other people that live in my house were absolutely thrilled that I had no voice yesterday evening and into this morning. This is the second cold I've had in a matter of a few weeks, I'm sure I've picked up something from the kids.
The power was out island-wide this morning. When the power would come on and off again (it flickered a couple of times) our smoke detectors would sound off. Funny thing is that Joshua was standing a time-out the first time the smoke detector went off, and he knew he was in serious hot water, so he didn't move from the time-out spot. So we had a long talk about what to do when we hear the smoke detector go off. Fortunately for us, we had plenty of practice with the alarms sounding 3 other times this morning.
Then Keith took the boys out in to the garage and had them come in bearing flowers and candy. I got the red roses and Megan got the pink ones. Daniel sang Happy Birthday to Mommy and it was so sweet I couldn't interrupt him.
