Hard to post when you're sick...

This week I got the flu for the second time this month. I woke up at 2:15 on Tuesday morning with a 103.5 temp. In all, I missed 9 days of work this month. I really don't like being sick, but I really hate having to miss work. However,...

Maren & Eowyn have stayed healthy. Maren's sister Kirsten flew in on Monday, and she's been healthy as well, so that's good news. Kirsten was supposed to arrive Sunday, but her flight took off & then was sent back to Frankfurt for a computer problem. Then they were diverted to Birmingham, AL because of tornados in Atlanta, so she missed her flight to Shreveport. She did get to stay in the Hyatt on the Airline's dime, though.

Eowyn is teething. She's getting her two bottom front teeth. We've felt them for a little over a week, and they've been poking through for a few days now. She's been a little cranky the last 2 days. Its fun to watch her run her tongue over them, trying to figure out what they are.

She also discovered her tongue, and that she can stick it out. We had fun this afternoon sticking our tongues out at each other.

Little Mullet Girl: No More

So Maren's finally put her foot down about The Mullet. "Its grown too long," she said. "Its time to blah blah blah blah blah," I heard. "Blah blah blah blah, blah blah. Blah. Blah blah blah blah blah." I don't think it was too important.

However, because of an earlier bad haircut episode, and because of her own complaints of bad haircuts at the hands of her own mother, I had made her promise to never cut Eowyn's hair again without my expressed written permission. I gave it to her verbally.

So, her hair has gone from this

to this

which made her do this.

But when she saw it, she did this

and finally this.

Some fun pics

Not only has it been a somewhat stressful semester in terms of the workload at school, but I had the flu for about 10 days. So its been a while since I've had a chance to, or even felt like, post anything. But I'm feeling better, and best of all, Eowyn & Mommy never got ill. So, to honor that, I have some fun pictures to post.

Where does the weekend go??

Its been a rough weekend in our house. I've been flu-ish all weekend, and Maren hasn't been feeling well, either. Fortunately Eowyn has been well. But it sure makes it hard to stay up with school work, so I'm spending my Sunday afternoon at the office catching up on grading and other things I've fallen behind on.

Here's some new photos of Eowyn:

Yes, she's standing by herself...just using daddy for balance.
