a spoon full of yogurt

Did you know we have all been sick? We are recovering now, but it has been a rocky road including burst ear drums, staff infections, Influenza-A, sore throats, missed work, canceled piano lessons and sinus infections. It appeared Lucas would fight me for 10 days every time he had to take his medicine. Then I had a flash of inspiration. Read and learn, folks:

Me: Lucas come and take your medicine.

Lucas: No!

Me: Okay, well how about this yogurt medicine?

Lucas: Okay. [Gulp. Smile.]

Forgive the lack of pictures and comments on your own blogs. I am choosing to not spend much time on the computer until the end of tax season. Some updates will be posted after April 15th. [Just think of this notice as me filing an extension for blog posting/reading.]


  1. I knew you were sick... I didn't know EVERYONE was sick. I'll send well wishes your way.

    Hopefully I'm not the only one that thought your line in brackets was HILL-arious. Because it was.

  2. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  3. you're so awesome. extention granted.

  4. Sorry to hear everyone has been sick. I'm glad everyone is on the mend. I hope you're doing well otherwise.

    Your extension has been granted, by the way.

  5. Hope your family is doing better!! We are on our second round of the bug.

    Hope the job is going well!!

  6. Rachel, I just got on and read some of your posts! I am enjoying them thoroughly! :) You are so busy and still finding the sweet things that keep us going. I loved the Lucas messes. Sorry about that. The yogurt trick was brilliant.
