Crazy Day

I decided that today's theme is "Crazy" since....
it's Crazy Hair Day at Schoo Middle School. Tyler loves to dye (temporarily) his hair for any occasion, so he couldn't wait for this one to come along. He was praying for no snow, so school would be in session.
I talked him into the Colt's theme with this weekend's Super Bowl. He said he wanted to wait to do it on Sunday for church youth group. I put the kibosh on that one. Everyone doing it is fine, but doing it by yourself is nerdy. Good thing this kid's got me for a mom, huh?!
Our neighbor girl, Hannah, had her hair done too. I didn't ask her if she put blue in her hair for the Colts also. I'm guessing not.
Another "crazy" event is poor, sick Maddy. Don't ya just love how I always have my camera with me? Well, she got sick yesterday at school. She had a headache, fever, terrible sore throat and vomiting (just once), which to me are all the right signs for Strep. The first test came back negative and we could hear today if the second test is positive, but more than likely it is just viral. She did have a 103.6 degree temp. last night. Of course, when I pay a $30 for a co-pay, I want it to be Strep, so I get my money's worth. I know that is indeed "crazy"too.

Madison's illness, along with no daycare for Grant today sealed the deal for me staying home. Oh, did I mention Andy is at a Surveyors' Conference in Kearney? Sick kids and Andy's absence always go hand in hand!

Today is the first of three days for a weekend scrappin' event here in Lincoln. I've never signed up for a full weekend crop before. I usually do a 12-15 hour one in a day, but never something this mammoth. Of course, being a mom is my first priority until Andy gets home tomorrow afternoon. I'll post what I get accomplished this weekend. Woo hoo! I can't wait!
The last "crazy" event of the day is more snow. We got a couple inches, which began as rain and turned into snow, and will continue to be in a Winter Weather Advisory until noon. The roads were a little slick this morning, but we are unfortunately getting use to driving with these treacherous driving conditions.

Your poor girl. She looks miserable in that photo. Still, you gotta love when you "have" to stay home from work.

We did get the call today that said the second test was Strep. I really think I could have become a doctor! :)

Mamma has spoken said...

I'm with you, if I take a kid to the doctor, I want it to be something that requires medicine because I don't like to waste the money either! Is the snow you getting an unusual amount for your area? We are in the middle of a winter snow storm too.....

Amy said...

Yes, Mamma it's been a long time since we've had this kind of wet, wintery weather. I can't recall this many snow days that we've used and the make up for it is difficult. I can't believe 36 minutes a day to a schedule can make it such a long and tiring day. I even notice my students are worn out.

Strep after all, huh? You should have been a doctor...:)
I hope Maddie is feeling better today.
