Pigs Fly

Well, I guess that since it has been covered by the national news everyone must realize that one of the reasons that I did not write yesterday was because all of the kiddos were home from school due to the district closing. Well, that and the fact that I had stayed up until about 1:30 AM in the morning dealing with kiddos that were having trouble sleeping and a puppy who had decided to spend the evening whimpering.

So, this is day 2 (of a possible 9 school days) that the kiddos will be home due to the H1N1 flu closure. I must say that the kiddos were excellent yesterday. They kept themselves occupied out in the playroom and gave me the freedom to get a bunch of work done. I don't know what to expect from today but I imagine I will be spending more time entertaining them and less time working. I can see them being in harmony for one day - but two. Wow, that is a stretch. Who knows, I could be wrong.

Plus, I really would like to spend some quality time with my rugrats - the merry band of twerps.

I really can't believe this whole swine flu pandemic. I am amazed at the response and all that has transpired. However, I have been surprised by a lot that has transpired over the last year. Had you asked me last year if I believed that a black man could be elected president I would have said "When pigs fly." Then, much to my surprise, on Obama's 100th day of office - swine flu.

I know - groaner - but it is worth a laugh.

Have a great day.

Mine will be full of purpii.
