I got the fever & the cure is more cowbells!

Gryffin has made a full recovery. Just one of those mysterious kid fevers I guess. Thank goodness, because we were afraid we might have had to cancel his birthday party tomorrow. That would suck.
Today I have to bake his cake and decorate it. He's requested a Ben 10 cake with all the aliens on it, our dog Scraps on it and sprinkles. I'm pretty sure I can do all but the dog. I also have presents to wrap, goody bags to cram full or stuff, pack up the plates, utensils, napkins and cups. Oh yeah, and I have to plant the peppers and tomatoes. That should be enough to keep me out of trouble, hopefully.

I haven't been killed by an avalanche of dirty clothes; although, they have formed a union.
Here's a quick update in bullets:
  • trying to get ready for Gryffin's birthday party next week
  • adopted a puppy
  • upped the antidepressant/anxiety meds
  • made Easter dinner for my chosen family
There was a lot more but my memory sucks, sorry.

Home Sweet Home

We returned home late Sunday night. The trip and visit was wonderful. Gryffin got to catch bugs, explore a cave, tour the Mothman Museum and pee in a cup. I think he was most excited about the last. We got stuck in deadlock traffic somewhere in Indiana and he just couldn't hold it anymore so we made Grandma hold the cup. Hee hee hee.
Gryffin was really good at keeping himself occupied while strapped in, he only watched one movie each way! On the way there we traveled at night and after the first couple hours he slept. On the way home he colored, played with his superheros and talked to us, kept us laughing the whole way. Damn, I love my kid.
His birthday party is the weekend after Easter at his dojo. Gryffin keeps telling us that he is determined to be a black belt. Hey, we need a ninja in the family, who doesn't?
The neighbors have been asking about when we are having our next party. We haven't had one in a few months and since we average one a month they are in withdrawl. So am I... maybe it will be warm enough for the Trailer Trash theme party. I can see it now... friends dressed in there trailer park best, empty beer cans turned into party lights, cheese that comes out of a can, pigs in a blanket and really cheap liquor. Or maybe a Wino and Cheez party, how about I make a bunch of egg rolls, crab rangoon and Chinese food or maybe even board game party. Of course the one theme I will never do with my crazy arse neighbors is truth or dare!
