Q. How can you tell when you've got a true-blue friend?
A. She comes to your house when you're as sick as a dog and picks up your four kids and takes them off for the afternoon with her one kid.

Wow!! I think I'd better add her to my life insurance policy or something. So I was able to go to the doctor and find out that I either have a throat infection or an abscess. I can try taking regular old antibiotics, but if they don't work I'll have to switch to one of those nasty kinds that make your stomach feel like it would've been easier to deal with the throat.

Okay, I'm going to try and stop complaining now. And just count my blessings. I'm thankful for friends (including the ones who got together with the above mentioned friend so that my kids had plenty of playmates.) I'm thankful for modern medicine, which I often resist, but can be pretty handy sometimes. I'm thankful for my children who came home saying they missed me after being gone for a few hours. I'm even thankful for the one who is standing here yelling at me that he doesn't want any cheese crackers! Oh, and I'm thankful for a husband who volunteered to bring home Indian take-out for dinner. Very thankful for that.

Okay, that feels better!
Now I need a nap.
