Well Di-i-ing Dong!
My sweet neighbor Nicki just started her own blog, y'all! And I can tell you from many many happy hours spent in her company and that of her Four Boys that she's going to have some hilARious stories to tell on said blog. So go ahead on over and say hello and then get her set up in your Google Reader or your bloggy feeds or whatever and sit back and watch her crazy busy but supremely organized and tidy life unfold before you. You're going to love her and her family as much as I do! Oh! And I would be completely remiss should I neglect to tell you that although Nicki's not the least little bit Southern, she's still one of the very most hospitable people I've ever known. And (conspiratorially) I caught her saying y'all yesterday. If two and two still = four, then just those two facts alone should tell you that Neighbor Nicki = Good People.
Meanwhile across the street, evil illness has taken aholt' of the two female residents of FriedOkra Manor. Bean's got a little cold (her first in probably 5 months, though, so she was maybe overdue by a little) and I woke up last night feeling that tell-tale ache of a brewing bladder infection. Fun times. We summoned the energy this morning to get out the house for a little fun (tell you about that later), but now we're holed up inside for the afternoon watching a Pooh movie, eatin' popcorn, and drinking our juices of choice - hers orange and mine cranberry (blargh!). Hopefully we'll have nipped all this viral/bacterial ickiness in the bud and be back tomorrow on HIGH.
