A Whole Bunch of Randomness

So I just realized that it's like 2 in the afternoon and I have abandoned all my lovely bloggy friends today.

I really don't have much to say.

Shana has strep. WOOHOO!!! Strep is possibly the best childhood illness ever. Why, you ask? They are fine within one or two doses. In Shana's case, she is generally fine within two hours of the first dose. And yesterday proved to be no exception. She got her first dose at 12:30pm ,and was feeling better by 2pm. I kid you not. It's insanity.

And btw her doctor appointment was at 10:45, and she didn't have her antibiotics until 12:30. Why? Because I had to go to two different stores. Why? Because the first store (Walgreens) did not honor my competitor's coupon for a gift card with a new prescription. And darn it, I wanted that freaking gift card! So I called my pediatrician's office back and they so nicely called it in to CVS for me. So it took forever. But between Benjie last week and Shana this week, I have $60 in CVS gift cards!!! WOOHOO!!

Jakie came home from school on Friday with only one sneaker:

"I don't know what happened, Mommy. I went to school with both sneakers in my bag but whenI opened my backpack when I got to school there was only one! It was like magic"

Sure. Whatever.

So yesterday was open school day (that's a topic for another day. Soooo bad for working moms). I stopped into the office on the way out, and EUREKA! his sneaker was sitting there in the lost and found. Wonders never cease.

Lastly, I'm getting really, really excited for my Florida Marathon trip! Benjie and I leave on Thursday morning and are coming home Monday night...I cannot wait! So much sun to sit in and yummy kosher restaurants to eat at. If you've been recently and there are any new ones we need to check out, please let me know!

I just checked the weather forecast...where are the 80 degree days? :( :( it's only going to be in the 70s...but it's not supposed to rain. Watch it pour. But I suppose 70 is better than the 15 it currently is here in Chicago.

Still waiting on the new camera...much to show you all.

Good luck Sara! I hope you get your camera so you can take pictures. I am so so so jealous, enjoy every minute. You deserve to have a great time!

See you guys there!

Have a great time! I'm incredibly impressed with your running. Enjoy the warmth and eating out. I have no recommendations on restaurants because when we went to Miami in May, I was pregnant and the thought of food made me want to we did not eat anywhere. My husband was not too pleased.

Um, it was 48 degrees today when we left the house. Can you remember the last time I saw the temperature for 48 in Miami in the daytime? I was 3. And it snowed.
Thanks for bringing the cold weather.
Should be in the 60s when you're here.
I'll be in a parka.
