Speed Post - Must Go To Bed!

Isn't that fun? It's a site that you can plug any word into and it will spell it out in pictures taken from Flickr photos. Chel had the site posted on her blog and I just had to share it myself. I spent waaaaaaaaay too much time on it today. I spelled Rexy 50 different ways and sent them to Phil at work so he can print it (the whole list) on the big printer. 2 feet wide and 5 feet long is my plan. The list looks cool on the email. If it works I'll post a picture. (To see this picture bigger, scroll down to the bottom of this page)

Gratitude Journal:

1. Cookies
2. Alliums
3. Singulair
4. Magazines
5. The way my husband hugs me

I had the best mail day on Monday. 3 magazines, 2 Posh Points deliveries, my BoxaNotions swap delivery (will post a picture soon - very cool swap), and not a single bill or piece of junk mail! How about that?

Rexy's been waking up coughing every night around 12:30 or 1am for the last 10 days. She's fine during the day and then wakes up coughing at night. Then last Friday she started doing this weird thing with her ears where she acts like she's trying to pull her hair out of her ears - except that her hair isn't in her ears. Very strange. So we went to the doctor today and there was no discernible problem except a little redness in the throat. So they took a throat culture and gave us some children's Singulair to try. (Asthma med that works on allergy symptoms, too-I take it every day myself) We have to stir it into something cold or at room temp. Well the only thing we know for sure she'll always eat is chocolate yoghurt...By the end of the week Rexy's going to be thinking that she's the luckiest girl alive! Chocolate yoghurt every night - whoo hoo!!! We may have a problem when we stop giving it to her...

In any case - she's still sleeping!!!! Yay!!! Now it's my turn...g'night everyone.

Hi Laurie!

Oh ... I'm so loving your name with the Flickr photos ... how cool is that? NEAT! I would love to see how the Rexy names all turn out. :) I'm sorry she's still coughing. I hope the asthma meds will help. I have really bad seasonal allergies and I try to hold out as long as I can without taking meds. I was coughing for three weeks before I realized it was allergy season again. *sigh* I take Claritin and it's really helping. Thoughts for you and Rexy ... all that interrupted sleep has got to be hard on both of you!

Have a GREAT weekend!

The name pictures are super cool.

Also, my 5 year old son also gets the major major coughing fits starting in spring...after YEARS of trying different things, he's now on a regular dose of allergy medication, and lo! no coughing himself awake at night anymore.

You are not alone!
