There is a sense of satisfaction to go to bed with your house clean, including your kitchen being clean. Let me go one step farther - not only is your kitchen clean, but your dishwasher is empty as well. Oh yeah, that's very satisfying. No dishes to put away in the morning. Ahhh. This is the life.

I kept Anna home today. Her cough is better today than yesterday - but it's not gone. I emailed her teacher who said that there are other kids with a cough and that she, herself, has a cough. I'm not sure that makes me want to hurry up and send Anna back to school tomorrow. I think I might keep her home another day. I asked her if she wanted to go back to school tomorrow and she said "no" which surprised me. Maybe her Mama is more fun than school. Maybe Anna still feels sick. Just for fun, we'll go with the first maybe. :o)

Amidst cough drops, games of Guess Who and snuggling with Mama - Anna relaxed today, watching her movies that we got from the library. She is such an obedient child. Whenever I ask her to do something, she says: "Okay, Mama, I'll listen." How cute is that? She's also very logical in her way of thinking. She wants to understand things and it's fun to see those wheels turning in her head. She's such a doll and I enjoy being with her. I've noticed that she, too, likes her alone time. I remember my Mom needing some time alone when I was growing up and I know that I need my alone time as well - otherwise I get overwhelmed. I think that perhaps Anna does as well, because she will go up in her room and play with her toys - doing role play between her dolls. Like mother - like daughter - like granddaughter. It's the great circle of life. Cue The Lion King soundtrack.

Tomorrow I'm doing the liver cleanse. I know what you're thinking - the last 2 times I've set out to do this cleanse, something has prevented me from doing it (mainly myself because it's so terrible). But this time is different, I will go through with it - and my allergies will be gone for 6 months! Hooray!

Does the liver cleanse really eliminate your allergies for 6 months? That is really cool. I don't remember if it had that effect on me. I've been thinking about doing it again, but I'm not sure that would be wise just yet (simply because it's so horrible). Let me know how yours goes.

Love, Kathey
