The week started badly when Foudy had another 3-puke day on Monday, where, of course, she threw up on my bed again. So I washed the comforter and all the bedding again. Fourth time in 2 weeks. Unbelievable. Thankfully there were no socks in her this time, and I did not take any pictures, because that's just gross. I do wonder what keeps periodically making her throw up, though.
On Wednesday, when the cold had really settled in, Zach and Drew used some nice teamwork to push Drew's toy around the kitchen. They both thought this was loads of fun.
Zach and I made cookies to send to Aunt Katherine at college. We ate a few, too! (Katherine, if you're reading this, they'll be there soon! I stuck them in the freezer right away and just mailed them yesterday.)
We tried to stay away from the windows and the front door, where there was ice inside and out. The first picture is our front door. More proof of why we need a storm door. The second picture is our kitchen window. It's a little hard to see because of the glare/reflection.
The boys watched the trash and recycling get picked up. I especially felt for the recycling guy, because he actually had to get out of his truck and stand in the cold, cold weather. Trash day is Thursday, and that was our coldest day! The trash guy never gets out of his truck, so I didn't feel so bad for him.
Friday it was finally warm enough to get out to playgroup, which was much needed by everyone! Saturday I took Maggie to the vet for another ear check. Her ear infection is not 100% better, but it is getting a little better. While we were there she decided to take revenge on us all by kicking her anal glands into high gear, which just about stunk the vet, the tech, and me out of the exam room. That was embarrassing. Dr. Allison and the tech took her off and cleaned her out, so hopefully that won't happen this next Saturday when we're back at the vet again for our 3rd recheck on this darn ear! If it doesn't get better, Dr. Allison said she might have to anesthetize Maggie to get all the gunk out to make sure her eardrum is still intact. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.
Finally, today I had a meeting after church and then I went to the grocery store, so Mike and the boys came home. Mike apparently got some good time to watch football and play on the computer, as the boys were out of harm's way, I guess.
Maybe I should have used that when I was going crazy being stuck inside with the cold temps. I'll have to remember it next time, I guess.
