Just One of Those Days

Jack's sick.  I'm sick.  It's raining.  The grape Children's Tylenol spilled all over the carpeted staircase.  John was *nearly* late for an interview at the White House this morning (he made it right on time, thank goodness, but I knocked at least a year or two off of my lifespan worrying about him).  It's just one of those days.

Fortunately, there are a few fun things on the horizon.  Mommy Joseph and her good friend Deborah are coming to visit!  I'm hoping I don't feel too sick, because I'm really looking forward to the zoo, shopping in Old Town, Mt. Vernon, and other fun activities.  We also have reservations at The Majestic on Saturday night, and I'd really like to be able to taste my coconut cake, thanks much.

Sarah and I also made it to the next and final round of the Lucky Lifestyle Contributor Contest!  Of course, I have no idea how many people made it, but at least this will all be over soon.  Thanks to everyone who voted, in particular Chad and Shauna.  Their dedicated clicking was truly impressive.  Voting for the next round starts November 1st, so we all have a nice break from Sarah's nagging.  In the meantime, I have a bit more editing to do before passing my novel along to the next round of beta readers.

If any one has any suggestions for a rainy day activity, please let me know!  We're already on our second episode of Sesame Street this morning - this does not bode well.  Especially since I'm talking along with Elmo during the intro to Elmo's World, in a really bad impression of Elmo's voice. 

It's almost like he's mocking me.
Thankfully, even on the worst of days, there's always nap time to look forward to.  Just one. more. hour.
