Whining, or is it Wining?

Well, it's been quite a week. I finished report cards and passed them out today, stayed up with a sick 9 year-old last night, allowed the 11 year-old to stay home today too because he didn't feel well, and nearly ruined dinner tonight.
My youngest son (Birthday Boy from last entry) was sent home from school sick yesterday. After, um, barfing more times than I care to count, he stayed home from school today. His older brother decided he was also sick. Gullible me. I allowed the little faker to stay home with his brother and Pappy, who was on sick duty today. Live and learn.
The little guy is finally eating- pasta and tortilla chips. Go figure. The middle kiddo is fine, but is slightly grounded for the evening (read- no video games).
Everyone had a two-hour delay today. From a teacher's point of view that's both good and bad. Good - we don't have to make up the day. Bad - we lost 2 hours of instructional time, and what we did have was nearly useless because the kids were so wired.
I picked up my oldest from his archery league tonight (he shot 544/600 - his personal best - not bad for his age and experience) and took him to sign up for baseball. It's about 2 below here, so we weren't sure if it would be canceled or not. As we passed the house my husband called in a panic. Seems my adorable mutt took a cue from Mason and threw up on the living room carpet. (Okay, Mason didn't throw up on the carpet, but you get the point.) I won't say here what the dog ate that caused this to happen.
Long story short (and kid needing tucked in), I made chicken nachos (my own invention out of necessity) for dinner and promptly spilled my red wine all over them, me, the table, floor, etc. DH salvaged some of the nachos and excused himself to eat them while I cleaned up the mess. Fortunately I wasn't too hungry. I had a few nachos (and another glass of wine - not a bad combo, either. I know, chicken and red wine, but that's what was cold and calling my name).
That's when I noticed my package. My Wilton delivery arrived and I'm dying to try out my LARGE couplers, bags, and tips. I'm soon to be in cupcake heaven. There's a silver lining to this cloud after all. LOL and goodnight!
