Geri called me and talked me through fixing what ailed my blog. THANK YOU, GERI!
If you are just joining me for the day I have a big weekend/Monday update a couple of posts down - with photos included. Our day has been hectic and we haven't even left the house. The Odyssey is still not finished. The alignment is now correct but now the systems all have to be set because the airbag sensors will not go off. Once again, a glaring reminder that we are doing the right thing in not putting the kids back in this vehicle. $18k+ in repairs, 2 months and one fiasco after another. They are thinking we might get it back tomorrow. Goodness.
On the home front. William has been in rare 2-year-old form today. Stripping and leaving a trail of tinkle behind him, full blown tantrums at every turn (especially when I insisted that the dog's dish was full - he kept wanting to pile the kibble on top of the dog food mountain and was FURIOUS with me when I made him stop) and the most charming when I have been dealing with the body shop, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, auto glass services, a doctor's office - you get the idea - every time I picked up the phone he was in my face, SCREAMING. ACK! I do think this is spectacularly deviant behavior because he isn't feeling well. He sneezed throughout the morning, fell asleep during Sesame Street at 10am, didn't eat his lunch and is now sacked out against my side on the couch while I type. We have been so blessed this winter - one pre-Christmas cold and Zachary's short bout with the stomach flu last week, I guess it is our time to have another batch of sickies.
