Killin' time...

Lolo has a fever. I have three kids, I'm no stranger to fever. But when fever-reducer won't reduce it (it was still 103.7) and she's breathing fast and unconsolable... Time for the emergency room. So, that's where Sam is. And since they won't let him call out on his cell phone even from the waiting room, here I sit, biting my nails. I figure I might as well be doing something productive, so I decided to finish uploading the pix. So, here you go... Thank rheno-pharyngitis for the following images *eye roll*...

Thanksgiving!!!

Delphine is a little camera shy... I had to enlist Sylvain's help!

There you have it... Now I'm going to go read and wait and probably worry a little...


Oh yeah, the sushi party is back on!!! We're eatin' sushi tonight, brothuh. Sam bought me a hoss new rice cooker last night. oooooh and he bought me some new pasta-flour called semolina. Don't worry, it's still organic. Gonna crank out those raviolies today... If I ever get any sleep, that is... Cross those fingers!
