But it was close at times. I think that is the only time Justin and I have ever been that sick at the same time--definitely since we became parents. (I can't remember much before the kids. I swear pregnancy depleted the brain cells I used to use for memory.) My parents helped on Saturday, but they are pastors and so have to work on Sunday. And I didn't really feel right about asking friends, "Could you come over and pick up our potentially disease-carrying children so we can recuperate? We'll do the same for you in a week!"
Enough about that. Here's a picture of me holding a mask of myself which was drawn by Miss Pink. The photo is taken by Miss Pink, which I would say explains the darkness and blurriness, but in fact it is not much different from many pictures I take.
When I asked why my tongue is sticking out in the picture, Miss P told me it was because I was about to eat some chocolate.
It's so helpful to know what I look like when I get a chocolate craving. I bet I lose weight every time I look at this.
That kid knows her mama. For Mother's Day, her teacher interviewed the kids about their moms and this is what she said about me.

"I love my mom because she's sweet."
I'll tell you who's sweet, and she's five years old and wears pink glasses.
Finally, I did go ahead and get a twitter page. I am hlinefracture, if you want to look me up. I may already be following YOU! Muahahaha!
Must go shower. See you later, alligators.
