This post will be short and sweet, as I’ve been over on The Female Problem page this morning. *If you arrived at this post from a childbirth related tag, go on over to The Female Problem page*
I got up early and used my new apple peeler, corer, slicer (from Grandma Shirley) and put the apples into the crockpot for some more apple butter. It’s so easy, makes the house smell wonderful, and makes me feel like I’ve accomplished…something. Thanks, Ranell and Kate, for the recipe.
I’m still suffereing from earaches. Last night was the worst yet. My right ear started hurting as well, and I started to feel kind of fevered and nauseous. I liberally self-medicated, got a hot water bottle, and hit the sack, hoping that today would be better. I’m going to give it one more day, then go to the doctor tomorrow if no improvement. I’m starting to get as bad as my husband about going to the doctor. I’ve really got my work cut out for me, I can see, with him in the future. It will be a feat to get him to cooperate, I think, when he’s seventy.
I finally succeeded in getting the kids’ clothes sorted yesterday, a task I’ve been putting off for weeks. Any mom knows what a big job this can be, especially with a 0-3 year old, because they grow so fast. I had to get out all the fall stuff, and pack away the summer and too small stuff. Linus has started to level off a little bit, so he wasn’t as bad. But Eliza…there are no repeats this year. I have to thank my hand-me-down suppliers, here. I don’t know what I’d do without them.
I don’t like this bailout one bit. Not. One. Bit. Hey, economic experts out there: What would happen if we just reduced the capital gains tax and greatly reduced (or eliminated) corporate tax? Wouldn’t that stimulate the economy more than anything? Just wondering. I feel like we’re marching closer and closer to socialism. Obama-ites see no problem with this. I, however, do. (And yes, I realize that Bush, McCain, Palin and everyone else supports the bailout, too.)
