Katie and I drove around town even though it rained most of the day. I thought it would be a good idea to get a McDonalds meal, go to the park and watch the ducks. Katie didn't like that idea. She throw an absolute fit when I turned into McDonalds. "I not want a McDonalds Mom!" she demanded. Okay. While we were droving around, seeing what's been going on these past several days, Katie fell asleep. I drove around as long as I could, so Katie could at least get a 30 minute nap. There is a new children's clothing shop in town called "Kids Unlimited." It just recently opened and from looking in the window, it looks real interesting. When and if we ever get a warm sunny day, I'd like to go check it out. I spoke to my cashier friend, I usually get her to check me out. She asked me if we've dodged the sickness. She said that they should have closed and quarantined Walmart this past week because of the illnesses. I told her that we didn't have the flu, but we did have the sinus trouble. By the way, Laura - we are trying the Mucinex (?). Katie's bad seal cough is pretty much gone. When she gets to playing and hot, she begins coughing. So, I'm hoping this will get the mucus on out of her. Doug came home coughing and he tried it out. He said that it tastes good at first, but it has a terrible after taste. He has to chase it down with a glass of water. He said he would stop by the store on the home tomorrow and see if they have a pill form.
I would love to go to Gymboree right now. I got a 20% coupon in the mail and they are having a pretty good sale. There is a green smocked shirt that I would like to get for Katiebug. They also have some of their Fall/Winter clothes on sale.
I can't say I'm surprised with the results on this weeks American Idol contestants. Out of my list of 4 people that I thought would be sent home, I got two right. I was torn between Colton and Garrett leaving, but I was hoping Danny would have been the one. I have a feeling he is going to be another Sanjya (?). I absolutely could not stand that kid last year on AI. I really didn't think Joanne would be sent home so quick. I hate it because I know she's got a voice. After revisiting the women's performances from last night, I think I've changed my mind about Ramiele. I believe I'm going to add her to my list of favs.
I spoke to Mom tonight and she sounded really good. She was upbeat and refreshed sounding. She told me that she got a warm welcome back at the rehab. She got to work with her favorite PT, Anthony, today. I asked her if he was stunned to see her again. "Yes," she responded. She made friends with the clinic staff, so she got to rekindle her friendship. She told Anthony about her trouble area in her hip. He told her that it was a nerve that's hurting. He assured her that they would do specific exercises to help that area, while she was staying with them. Her heart scan came back good and that there was nothing wrong with her heart. Overall she had a very good day.
