And if having your raisins aligned is just as lucky as stars, then my 2010's lookin' bright

Kate was under the weather for several days last week, but thankfully she's feeling better. Her fever spiked at 105 on Wednesday and that sent us for a scare, only to find out it was just a virus and we had to 'let it run its course'. You know the drill. Drink plenty of fluids. As much as I hate hearing that, because it leaves me with a helpless feeling, most of the time it's true. And she did end up feeling better within a few days.

She felt much better on Saturday, so we took her to Chuck E. Cheese. Because that's the natural cycle of an illness, right? You get sick, you get better, and then you go to Chuck E. Cheese? I could tell she was still a little tired from being sick last week - after playing for a couple hours, she fell asleep as we were driving out of the parking lot.

Holding her lips like that while driving clearly shows she means business. I do it sometimes, too.

Kate fed M to the Izz-A lots and lots of cotton candy. He's obviously just as big of a fan of the lip pooch as we are.
And on the first day of 2010, I knew it was going be a good year day bowl of cereal when I saw this:

No need to go searchin' through my bowl of Raisin Bran Crunch for all of my raisins when in one spoonful I see that there they are, in all their plumpness, stuck together just for me. Is that a sign or is that a sign? Actually, it's not a sign - it's just a big bite of goodness, that's what it is. How odd does that make me for taking a picture of it?
And yes, that's a paper Dixie bowl you are seeing. Because what if I already knew that I wasn't going to feel like washing a cereal bowl later?

Sometimes A lot of times I do that.
So there.
I just tagged myself for being an oddball and a little bit of a Lazy Lucy at times, all in one post.
How's that for a productive start to the new year?

Dear Sister from Another Mister,
Um, seriously we are freakish with our similarities. Black boots at CEC? Check. Cute vest? Check. I will say that your hair is much better than mine though. I missed out on those genes, I suppose.

Also- I am trying to sweet-talk a beach vay-cay out of my hubs for this summer. Are you far, far away from Destin??

I'm glad she's feeling better. Who doesn't love Chuck E. Cheezes?! I remember when it was called Showbiz Pizza! I always play the Skeeball. I'm not as good as I was when I was a kid though.
