The kids seem to be on the mend.

Patrick finished the first half of his hockey season last night with a win. Now the league divides the top half of the league and calls that AA and the bottom half is called A. Patrick's team was tied in the middle with 2 other teams, so we still don't know what will happen. The silver lining is that if they are A, then we don't have to travel as far and they have a really good chance of winning the whole thing! He has been shuffled around a little, he was defence, then forward for most of the season, and then defence for the last 3 games, but now he is coming along as a defenceman and is getting some really good coaching. He does miss being a part of "the rush" just a little, but that's okay, he can still score now and then.

We have been eagerly waiting for word from our breeder that the puppies have been born. The puppies were due on Thursday, so every time the phone rings, I jump now. I'm obsessed with shopping for puppy. This puppy is SOOO spoilt and he isn't even born yet.

Still sick. UGH I wish I could just sleep it off.

Just thinking about George. He was a great guy.

We are still working on getting better. Kira was pretty tired and grumpy today and I woke up with a wicked sore throat. Patrick and Damon are still coughing a lot, but they seem to be better.

Our puppy is due to be born in 3 more days! We are getting very excited.

Well I think Kira is finally on the mend. She woke up with a fever and was having difficulty coughing, so I took her to the walk-in clinic. The doctor there said that she has another ear infection and possibly a little bit of pneumonia. Since he needed to give her antibiotics for her ears anyway, he didn't send her for x-rays. Her rash got much worse on Thursday and the doctors called it a non-specific viral rash. Finally today the rash started disappearing. Her torso feels like sandpaper now, but it is getting better. PHEW!!!!!!!!!!! I want us to be healthy. I've been wanting to take her to Gymboree to get some hairbows for her Christmas outfits.

Matt's friend Brett arrived today. He is staying with us while he works at the shop with Matt. They are understaffed and Brett comes from Ottawa (5 hour drive) when they need him to. He's a farmer, so this time of year he has some flexibility. I don't really mind Brett being here. It bothers me that my husband will be distracted and thinks he is a frat boy. I guess I'll just have to do some Christmas shopping to keep me busy so I don't notice.
