Random What's Up Wednesday.

So here is a little random to go with your Wednesday Wheaties. Or Lucky Charms. Or Fruity Pebbles. Or Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Or Cheerios.

There is a guy named Tom Kruse that invented the Hoveround. A mobility assistance device for the physically impaired.

There is so much irony and ridicule waiting to be had in that statement that I am just going to leave it at that.

There is a commercial for a chiropractor here in my city and his name is Dr. Noback.

My daughter walked by a FedEx truck the other day that was loudly blasting country music and said, "Mommy, I really like that crunchy music!"

I was reading the great EPCOT cake comment tragedy this morning right before I posted this, when from the other room I heard odd squealing noises that sounded like a stuck pig or a teenage girl at a Jonas Brothers concert. Since I don't own a pig and The Brothers Jonas are forboden in my house, I jumped up to see what the fuss was all about. It turned out to be FCB looking at his stock ticker and doing a happy dance in his chair because he was making some money back from the slump that occurred yesterday.

Simple things get him going I guess.

Watching the news and the HYPE that is going on with the swine flu, I learned that there has been a fatality in TX. A toddler. And my heart just broke all over again. I have been following the story and the devastation that this flu is causing is just heart wrenching. I couldn't imagine losing my child. I am actually thinking about yanking Punk from school. Not only because I don't want to be exposed to this AGAIN (yes, I think I had this thing. Every symptom they are saying this thing comes with I had in excess for the last 3 weeks. I just didn't get my but to the doctor because I knew I would be hospitalized if I did and I didn't want to be. But I am on the mend, for now, and don't want to get sick again with anything else.) but because I really don't want my child to ever have to suffer anything like what people are experiencing around the world. We were both very sick with this last bout, and I don't want either one of us to go through it again.

So that is mostly what is up with my Wednesday. How about you guys? What's new with you? Give me a shout out and let me know who is still hanging in there with me.

Oh and have a great What's Up Wednesday!

I prefer Lucky Charms myself ;)

I saw that on the news about the toddler too- it has to be something about Mexico though, that toddler died in TX, but was from Mexico. A dirty dirty place, lacking hygiene in a lot of areas. I'm sure that can't help :( At any rate, I too am keeping an eye on the news, and the first time they start talking about it in FL, I don't think daughter will be going back to school for awhile. I did see on TV that there was a suspected case from a Mexican visitor to disney last week- but Disney and the CDC both said no. I hope that's true.

The world is a scary place :(

there isn't a lot going on with me on WU Wednesday- I am sick myself with something, and feel like ass. Husband is out of town, and the kids are wild as usual ;) I actually am geting ready to book a girls cruise for this fall for me and a friend- thank God I hadn't already booked it, we were going to go to Mexico! Jamaica it is now :)

And in other news I'm pissed off at my parents because they booked a cruise a few weeks ago- to cozumel- and still plan on going. And then coming here 2 weeks later. I think it's time for a collective "HELL NO", and laying the law down- no flu ridden visitors here, thanks.

the little baby in Tx is soo sad. Breaks my heart. I sent my girls to school with the anitbacterial gel and orders: Clean your hands w/ soap, no kissing, sharing sodas or sticking your fingers in other peoples noses/mouths.
I suppose if you told Punk all that, she would go to school and tell the teacher she needs to stick her fingers in other kids mouths. Yeah, if you don't have to send her to school, it would not hurt to keep her home.
Love your jonas brothers comments...really, where do you come up with this stuff???
Already did a plethora (Love that word) Of stuff this morning and am going to run an errand. Have to get a birthday present for a friend...what do I get a girl who HAS everything and if she does not have it, she can get it herself???
have a good one. Suz
