Vaughan went to school today, Steve stayed home from work. Justin is doing better and I am maintaining.
All the phones are turned off to protect those who are sleeping.
My mom brought over her homemade chicken noodle soup, fresh squeezed OJ, homemade biscuits and strawberries. Steve and Vaughan made a Walgreens run last night, add in our vitamins (which we hadn't been taken as regularly as we should have been), a bottle of echinacea and my kitchen counter looks like this:
For those of you who know me well, you know how much I avoid medicine, so it's pretty rough around here. Anyway my alka-seltzer is kicking in so I'm going to push some laundry through, start the dishwasher, eat a few strawberries and then watch some of the Presidential festivities on the tele. Gotta say although I didn't vote for Obama (registered independent right here) I am excited for our new President and support him 100%, as I believe we should always do as Americans, watching all the stuff on his journey has brought a few tears to my eyes.
I also am excited about his call to service for the people of our country. Something very close to my heart and something we have been actively doing in our church or the past 4+ years.
Helping rebuild New Orleans, LA and Waveland, MI, Make a Difference Day, giving to the inner city children of Detroit and local service to the people in our own neighborhoods are just a few things my friends and family have participated in as part of a call by Jesus to serve others and give back.
So... off to some housework before medicine wears off.
I feel like yuck!
