I witnessed guardian angels at work today.
It snowed here last night, a couple of inches of the heavy wet stuff that clings to bare tree branches and look beautiful. Not enough to merit a snow day mind you. As Baby J and I were driving Lucy and Edmund to school, I saw a mighty big limb come flying down into the street, RIGHT BETWEEN two moving cars. This limb would have done some serious damage. Edmund surmised that should this limb have hit our car, it may have made the airbags go off. I suspect Edmund would love to see the airbags go off.

I'm exhausted from THREE weeks of a coughing, snot-faced baby. There. I said it. I make it a point not to complain on Facebook or on my blog (well, I try). I hate reading posts about kids barfing in the night and status updates about other people's sinus infections and migraines. Heads Up! Everyone's kids barf in the night! Nighttime is for barfing, or couging up lungs, or just couging every 30 seconds followed by gagging and barfing. That's what parenting is all about.
Now, I feel better. And I might go to Starbucks today. Because it's worth it.
Quick Take #3 has me already feeling more chipper less bittcher. That's a combination of bitter and another word. So have some more Marcel, on me.
March 10th, Baby J and I are going to the Behold Conference in Peoria. Jen Fulwiler gives the conference a shout out in her Quick Takes today. She's going to be there too. I'll try not to make a fool out of myself if/when I meet her, like I did when I met Mashup Mom in the grocery store.
Yesterday, when I got all verklempt about my kids growing up, I mentioned Fr. John, but I neglected to mention that he was my classmate at the University of Dallas many moons ago. He kept looking at old yearbooks while we were prepping dinner and then warning us not to let our kids see our yearbooks. Curious. What could be in there? I must have a look-see.
An update from my Meatless Mania post. The Falafel Pitas were very yummy. We put the falafel (falafels?) into pita pockets with red pepper and cucumber slices and Tzatzaki sauce from Costco. That Tzatziki sauce is good stuff. I use it as dip, sandwich spread, and salad dressing. You might think I was a paid sponsor of Costco, but I'm not. Though I'd like to be.
