Today in health, Mr. B's ears look more normal today--the on-call doctor suspects it's an allergic reaction to something--but what? A mystery unsolved--we were at 2 strange houses over the weekend, anything could've triggered it. Dr. D recommended Cetirizine and Calamine lotion to ease the heat and itch. Mr. T's continuing to do well as we ramp down his meds--no seizures that we know of and the rest of his system is tolerating the shift. So far, so good!
In weather & road conditions...Snow continues to fall and our neighbor's tractor blew a head gasket so here we sit drifted in. A quarter mile looks reallyreallyreally long when you're facing it with a snow shovel in hand. Mr. D's using his snowblower, but this might be the year to trick out the ATV with a plow attachment. We had company for dinner last night and they got stuck on the way in. Mr. D had to assist their passage (thank goodness for cell phones or we wouldn't have known they sat in a snowbank within sight of our house). My turkey turned out well, though, and we had a jolly time--and another late night. You know it's bad when even your cat is craving a respectable bedtime.
In business news, UPS didn't come through for us--one of 2 R/C cars came Saturday--the car that arrived on time came broken. I made the executive decision late Christmas Eve that no one would receive an Air Hog Zero Gravity car and I'll deal with the returns when I don't have 3 monkeys constantly underfoot. Happily, they adore their Air Hog Helicopters, new Nerf guns and Magnetix roller coaster so they never missed the cars.

I'm hoping to hunker down with my laptop and catch up on all my blog reading later. The coffee is almost ready and Team Testosterone wants to watch The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl--here's to sloth, gluttony & Christmas vacation!
