Green Boogers

One of the most fun things about living with a little kid is their frank way of talking. If you have a tender ego, you won’t last long. But they are brutally honest, which you don’t get – generally – from your friends. This can come in handy when you want to know whether you look the way you imagine you do. For instance, getting ready for my dinner downtown last weekend, my daughter just looked at me for a minute... then said I didn’t look like myself. (I was wearing makeup!) It took longer for her to tell me I looked nice. :)

Anyway, this week I’ve had a miserable cold. It kicked in exactly at the same time I got M enrolled in SAE. I had hoped to use the time to pound out my classwork (I have two weeks left) but instead I have been walking around with a head that feels full of cement. I took my midterm just hoping I would pass, and my paper, I am sure, was not my best work.

I still have horrible green boogers, and M has politely told me so, and that I look terrible. I am plodding along with my homework and putting things away. I’m really glad M hasn’t gotten this cold yet, and after her illness at the beach, I’m not up to her being sick again so soon! It’s a gorgeous day outside today... we’ll see how it goes.


  1. Sorry you got sick. Must be because of all the stress of moving?

  2. Sorry about the boogers! Hope you are starting to feel a bit better, and hooray for wonderful weather. I'll keep my fingers crossed that M doesn't catch your ailment!

  3. My boogers were red when I was in CO (you're welcome).

    I hope you get well soon, M stays well, and you finish off your last two weeks with style! :-)

  4. I'm so sorry you are so sick! Google ads recommend a natural "excessive phlegm remedy." Ha - sorry, can't resist. Those Google ads are so nosey!

    Good luck with the green boogers! You poor thing! Hope you feel better soon.
