    This is a long weekend in most of Canada. Here it is called Heritage Days. They have a a big festival with different countries are represented with art, crafts and food. There are about 80 countries represented. We are trying to figure out which day to go. Was going to go tomorrow but it is calling for thunderstorms and so we may go Monday. We go early so we are done by the time the crowds are there. heritage festival

    Finally back from the doctor and finding an open pharmacy. Caitlyn has strep throat. I was surprised because she did not complain of a sore throat. I am glad to know what is wrong and have medicine for her though. Here's hoping no one else gets it.

    Glad you know it's strep, Bonita, and can deal with it!

    And Margaret, good for you on the hair! It's hard to see in the pictures but what I see I like. I am the same as you, I hate having my picture taken under any circumstances.

    I got a haircut today too, so did Juliet. She looks like a princess.

    We're off to see Matilda on Broadway tomorrow! Then a friend of mine who I've known since 7th grade is coming to stay with us for a week. All good stuff.

    I have tried to get better about having my picture taken. DH insists that I be in at least some pictures so that our girls will have pictures to look back on when they are older. It is hard though.

    Oh gosh, no more sick kiddos! I hope everyone feels better soon.

    Margaret, I love the feeling of a new hair cut, don't you? It always looks better to me right after the hairdresser does it than i can ever make it look myself.

    So get this....Cecilia THREW UP this morning.

    I'm now more confused than ever. Is this seriously some virus that they are all now going to go through? Three weeks...really? I'm almost in disbelief honestly.

    She threw up once and it was VERY spontaneous. She got up...seemed fine and was talking about other stuff and then all of a sudden ran up to me and said "mommy, i'm going to barf" I honestly dismissed it at first because she has said that before and then proceeded to 'spit' in a bowl. But then she got upset and said "MOMMY, i'm going to barf" So i sat her down and gave her a bucket (very easily accessable and ready to go these days!) and sure enough she puked.

    And then 10 minutes or so later she got up and started running around and acting like it never happened ...and was that way the rest of the day.

    Nathalie actually had a good day. No barfing.

    I never mentioned that i ended up bringing her to the doctor again yesterday morning because she was complaining that her arm is tired/tingly. Something that she very non chalantly mentioned before (and i in turn mentioned to the doc) but this time, she seemed much more upset about it. So i called and they had me bring her in. She barfed on the way into the doc and barfed twice after we were there. Saw a dif. doc since it was a sick visit and she tried to tell me that maybe its acid reflux. She had me stop the other Rx, and they put her on Zantax and i'm supposed to keep her on it until Tuesday, which is her next appointment to see if she improves.

    I honestly think she's wrong and its not acid reflux at all. She basically ignored any and all other symptoms. she blew off the headaches as something that she might have had earlier that she is getting over, didn't even seem to care about the fatigue and when i mentioned the arm again at the end she said she felt fine just 'keeping an eye on it' for now because she did a quick set of neurological tests and everything seemed fine. Well okay...but why are all these things happening at once?

    But now with Cecilia i can't help but wonder if this is the virus from hell just F'ing with me. I so want to stick my head in the sand at this point!

    I always make sure there are a few for that same reason. I try to do it on days when I feel better about how I look!

    Kim -- I'm so sorry you are now going through this with kid #2, although maybe that means it really is some kind of virus, which would be better than a long term condition. Very frustrating and upsetting. Hope you get some answers soon.

    Oh i would be very happy for this to be just a virus! Just amazing to me that after all of this...that might be all it is. Strangest virus EVAR. Totally bizarre. Guess time will tell.

    I try to do better at pictures. I had a sister die when she was 29, my niece and nephews cherish the pictures of her, especially any that were the kids and her. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow when we are out, but I love getting my hair done. I really needed the colour my roots were almost 2 inches of grey and it was really bothering me. When Robbie saw me he said that my hair kind of looked purple. It does have red tones and so that is probably what he was talking about.

    Kim - that is crazy what your kids are going through. Not fun at all. I really hope they find out what is going on.

    Think I am headed for bed, had a hard time sleeping last night.

    I have something weird going on with my body. I get menstrual type cramping for an hour or so, then it stops for several hours or until the next day. This has been going on for the last 4 days. Usually I get cramps that stay until AF starts. I may be late...with my body you never know, boobs started hurting today as well.... While in some ways I hope I am pregnant in others I think do I really want to be pregnant at 44. I want another baby but it also makes me nervous. I dunno, just hope my body settles down soon.

    While I would love for you to be pregnant, I will tell you that I have a UTI (urinary tract infection) right now and did recently notice that it mimics period cramps. I also remember pre-kids thinking more than once that I was pregnant when in actuality it was a UTI.
