This and that...part deux

  • Please say a prayer tonight for a fellow blogger buddy and her family (TongguMomma). She lost her FIL today.
  • Through a chain of crazy events, I learned that my prom date my sophomore year is Paige's teacher's brother-in-law. Get that?
  • Paige has reported that she WILL be in the Nutcracker again next year. She is LOVING this production. She is talking about wanting to be a Prima Ballerina. (This coming from a little girl who is a self proclaimed tomboy, who would rather wear cargo shorts and a football jersey than anything pink).
  • I have a sinus infection the size of Texas and want some relief!!! Any suggestions or old home remedies??? I went to a walk in clinic and they didn't give me an antibiotic....aye yi yi!!!
  • It snowed here in TN. today...only briefly, but yet there were flakes. Speaking of flakes, I bought some of my dear friends the cutest little Christmas dish towels today that say, "Some of my best friends are flakes" and they have little blingy snowflakes all over...cute, huh?
  • Paige just sent me into an asthmatic fit because she is sitting here beside me on my bed, hair gelled back into a mullet ( had Nutcracker practice and this is the way it has settled after taking it out of her bun ), and she has her toes curled and she is intently eating pancakes. I looked over at her and she said, "Don't stare at me. Can't a girl eat her flap jacks in peace?)
  • Life is great! Happy Weekend to YOU!

Sorry to hear you are sick....sinus infections are the worst! Did they give you anything at the clinic?? One thing that usually works for me is Mucinex-D.
You can get it at the drug store, but you might need to ask the pharmacist for it...I think you usually have to sign for it!!

We had some flurry action yesterday too.....and it is SO cold!!

I am so glad Paige is loving the Nutcracker and has her sights set on becoming a Prima Ballerina....very cool!!

Hope you girls have a fun weekend!

Talk to you soon!

Paige is such a little character. You just gotta love that girl!

Sinus infections aren't much fun. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Missy,
I hope you feel better soon. I can't say I've ever had a sinus infection, but I can only imagine how much they hurt.
You've inspired me to take Jade to see The Nutcracker here. I haven't told her yet, just in case my SIL decides to have her baby the day of the performance and we have to miss it. Of course, I'll be thinking of Paige! I wish we could see her performance.
Have a good day!

Oh - poor baby - we are sick too. It is so cold here! So Cold! Keep those flakes where you are :D

I will pray for you friend - how hard to loose love ones this time of year.

We are going to see the Nutcracker too! I can't wait!

Ladybug hugs,

You had SNOW? Lucky! Even if it doesn't stick, it's so pretty coming down!

Love to hear that Paige is really enjoying the Nutcracker. That is so wonderful.

And yeah, can't a girl eat her flapjacks in peace?! (Paige is such a hoot!)

I too hope you get better soon. Paige is such a hoot:) I am so glad she is having such fun with the nutcracker rehearals...

Chris and Deb said...

So sorry to hear that you are sick Missy! We have all benn sick here too...Sounds like Paige is keeping the humor going for you though! :) Thanks for the update on TM...will head over there too! Hope you are feeling better soon!

Donna said...

What a funny girl! Hope you're back to 100% soon!

Jboo said...

How great that Paige is enjoying the Nutcracker! I'm sure you will be posting photos -- can't wait to see them.

Sorry to hear about your sinus infection -- no fun at all! Have heard of some using a netti pot (am not sure what is is, but available at drugstores, like W@lgreens here) and supposedly helps sinuses. Hope you are feeling better soon! Take care.

The Byrd's Nest said...

I just love her personality...I would love to meet both of you!

I am sorry you are sick....Ugh! I detest sinus infections.

Snow??? We NEVER get snow!

day by day said...

Hi Missy!

I hope you are feeling better now!

Hooray for Paige that she is looking forward to next year's performance...what motivation!!!

Have a great week!

Joe and Jane said...

Paige is a riot! Love the flapjacks comment.

Hope you're feeling better soon! It seems the entire world (or anyone in contact with kids) is sick right now!

Jennifer said...

I have a cold too...yuck!

I am cracking up about Paige and her "flap-jacks in peace".


Shawnstribe said...

Hey Girly
hope you're feeling better,
cant wait for more photos : )

Michelle said...

Hi Missy,

Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. I hope you can kick it soon. Sinus infections are no fun.

Your sister cracks me up. Flap jacks. I'm not sure I've ever called them flap jacks. She's a hoot. I'm glad to hear she is loving her part in the Nutcracker!


Dawn said...

Missy, thanks for your comments on my blog. Nancy (supermommy) is a very good friend of mine (although we have yet to meet in person -- hopefully one day). Anyway, I know I have checked out your blog before, but now I have it listed so I can look at it regularly. Paige is beautiful! I can't wait to learn more about her.

Heather said...

Oh friend - take care of that sinus cousin swears by the netti pot and I am a big fan of mucinex and antibiotics! Feel better quickly, no fun.

Paige, girl, stay on those toes! As a former dancer myself, nothing gives my heart more joy than young dancers, such a precious time, such precious memories.

And ummm Missy, in the future can you give the kid a break and make sure she can eat her flap jacks in peace? Okay then.

Have an awesome week and a completely blessed Thanksgiving.
