Puffs Plus with Vicks

Good for the nose. :)

It is so extremely rare for Kris and I to be sick at the same time... in fact, I am not sure that it has EVER happened before. BUT, thankfully neither one of us has a fever so it's not as bad as it could be. Just seems to be severe cedar allergies. The cedar pollen is pretty high right now, and the wind is strong today. Going outside produces (worse) headache and miseries. Erinn is feeling great, at least for now. I am watching her ride Thunder through the window. No, she's not riding him through the window. I am watching through the window! She took the bit off the bridle and put the hackamore on. He behaved very well after a few rebellious hops. He wasn't sure what to think of this new thing on his head, but ended up being extremely responsive to it.

Mooky is feeling better but still coughing. He went to bed at 7:30 last night and got up at 4 this morning when he heard me making coffee. However, I was not feeling great so by the time he got out of the bathroom I had turned the kitchen light off and laid back down. Since it was dark he went back to bed and slept until 7! YIPPEE! LOL. He just so rarely sleeps "late" like that. I know that isn't LATE to certain a certain cousin whose name starts with an A.

Maggie is looking huger (is that a word?) by the minute! She is so miserable. I know how she feels since both of our kids were over 10 pounds at birth, but maybe I don't know how she feels since I only had one baby at a time!

I haven't been grocery shopping since December 24!!!!!!!
That is a MAJOR accomplishment in my life. Truth to tell, Mum picked up $40 worth of groceries for me on December 29, and Kris got that much again earlier this week. BUT, if I had gone it would have been more like $100 plus extra gas money so I am very pleased.
Of course, now some of the pantry supplies are dwindling and need to be built back up, but it was still a big savings to stay home. I'm trying to hold out until next Tuesday before I go again.

Mooky gave me a gift card for Christmas that he said is for me to buy any kind of washcloths and kitchen towels that I want. Hooray! I am ALWAYS running short so I can't wait to get some new ones.

Next week will be busy because of kidding and 4-H activities. The yearly county livestock show requires at least 3 trips to town. (30 miles each way.) Hopefully we will be feeling better by then.

I didn't even lock up Mad Cow or Almond last night so I wouldn't have to milk this morning. Truthfully, I would have locked Almond up so I could milk Dana, but it was really cold and he was snuggled up right in between Dana and Velvet and looked so warm... his nose was already runny and if I had put him in the kid pen he wouldn't have had anyone to snuggle with. Even if I had put one of the wethers, or one of the younger does in with him they would not have let him snuggle so it would have been pointless.
