Things I did today...

  • made a banana-blueberry-spinach smoothie for Emmett and me for breakfast
  • baked chocolate chip cookies
  • did laundry (one load still in the washer right now)
  • vacuumed upstairs
  • cut out hearts for Annika to make into Valentines for her teachers at preschool (the rest of the kids got bought cards, but she wanted to make something special for the teachers)
  • ran 2 miles on the treadmill while Annika was at school and Emmett was napping (I'm still slowly getting my groove back after being sick for so long - stupid cold)
  • played far too much Candy Crush (anyone else addicted to that game?  I'm stuck on level 65)
  • made Emmett laugh hysterically   
  • cooked a delicious supper - check out the recipe here
  • finally got my right ear to "crackle" and almost pop (I've had fluid - but no infection - stuck in there for almost 2 weeks, from my cold, and the doctor recommended "hold your nose and blow" to help clear it out.  Prior to tonight nothing would ever happen when I did that, so I was quite excited when it finally made a little crackling noise this evening.  It hasn't quite "popped" and cleared all the way yet, but this feels like progress - which is good because we'll be flying in less than 2 weeks)
  • put the kids to bed, sat down, put my feet up and blogged

Sounds like a delightful and productive day! Making Emmett laugh hysterically would have been the cherry on the sundae!

Sounds like a fun day. When I have fluid in my ear, sometimes pulling on the ear lobe and tilting my head helps to clear it out.

Ugh! I'm stuck on level 65 too!! I do like it that when you run out of lives you have to stop for a bit - even if you send requests to friends for 'help'...it still takes time for them to respond. It forces you to put the game aside for awhile. :)
