Skipping School (Again)

I'm being naughty today and playing hookie from college. I have a test tomorrow and a paper due tomorrow. The test I'm ready for (almost) but the paper - yikes! I haven't even started it!

And I have tonsillectomy paperwork to finish up. Plenty for me to do without putting in a full day of lectures too.

Baby Princess is sick. This is the real reason I'm home today. She's got a fever, cough and snot pouring out of her like she's just a snot faucet. She hates it when I come after her with a kleenex so she just wipes her nose with her hands and wipes it all over her cheeks and forehead. Then she rubs her hands together like she's applying lotion. She's a beautiful sight.

I got her some pediatric Robitussin for cold and cough. It's really working! But holding down all her flailing arms and legs and pouring a spoonful down her screaming gullet is not an easy task. I finally got wise this morning and put a spoonful in the freezer. It froze up like a little popsicle and I shoved that in her mouth. She swallowed it! The whole dose! No screaming! I'm impressed with myself for coming up with that one! I've got the next dose freezing up right now.

I should get with it and do a little research so I can whip an essay outa my wahzoo today. It would be nice to pretend I put some time and thought into it.

Wow, that was smart, the medicine thing. I would never have thought of that.

Now get busy, and shoot that paper out your wazoo. Or are you done with it now? What's it on? Sorry, I'm curious...and nosy. lol

Oh, and isn't it a glorious day when they learn how to blow that stuff out? :)
