Here I am posting again without any photos - I completely forgot to update this blog in the last three months or so.
Can this really be called a blog if there's nothing in it?
Not much to post about, well, there is, more or less. I have another cold, Hubby's sprained finger is better and Alex is practically over his bronchitis. I seem to post nothing but about how sick we are/have been, but this has been a bugger of a winter for us.
My Mom (Hi Mom!) also had some health issues (I'm skirting around the thing here to not put her on the spot) and Michael did a great job of putting in the emergency call and handling the whole thing on his own. Which might be why he goes up to casual acquaintences with Mom in tow and tells them aaaaalllll about the health issues that she had, which, as I said, kinda puts her on the spot, but he does this from a kind heart. Michael is really an OK kind of guy, and I'm really proud of him.
Lessee, what else, oh, Alex reads like a pro now, but hates doing his Italian homework, he much prefers Maths (the kid DID NOT get that from me, anyone who knew me when knows that - actually anyone who knows me at all knows that - I am a Maths Dummy). His maths teacher was almost gushing about how he never had such a good maths student as Alex. When Alex isn't daydreaming in class, that is. Now THAT sounds like me! He definately rubs his English teacher the wrong way, he gets distracted too easily and zones out and that pisses her off, so she's always writing remarks on his workbook "Alex didn't follow the "Numbers Song""; "Alex didn't write the words next to his drawings" and so on. She actually substituted his regular class teacher for a day or two and wrote in RED PEN all over his Italian notebook that he had started the work at 8:30 and at 12:00 STILL hadn't finished and had also copied the whole story instead of just the words that he had circled. Geeze Louise, the rest of his notebook was all "Great Job" and little hearts and things like that. Can you tell I'm a little ticked off at the teacher?

I have been reading the Julie/Julia Project blog lately, damn thing is destroying my eyesight, but is very funny. I really enjoyed the film Julie and Julia.

Oh, I finally got the goose that I was given for a Christmas present out of the freezer. I'll just have to cook the thing in a regular pan instead of with the roasting grill that will let the fat drain to the bottom, oh well. I had to make room in the freezer for the lasagne that I cooked last Sunday anyway. I am also hoping to getting around to making more English muffins this weekend, but it's gonna be hard, on Saturday Alex has a costume birthday party to go to and on Sunday not only did I want to go to Ikea, but also to go vist my best female friend (bff).
We'll just have to see how things pan out.
Maybe I'll even post a few pics.
