Strep Throat and other fun

So this week has been great! It's Spring Break and my kids have been sick as dogs with strep throat. Fun, fun fun! We had plans to go skating and Nickelrama and the science museum...instead we are stuck here at home having fights over whose Webkinz is whose. So I'm going to go crazy and since they are both on antibiotics now so we're headed to the newest $1 movie in Dallas to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. (Those of you in Dallas, did you know the Hollywood over on 635 at NW Hwy is now a $1 movie? I don't think many people know because it's dead there all the time, usually we are only 3 of the 5 people in a theater).

I'm still debating if we are going to the annual easter egg hunt at my husband's work tomorrow. Last year we all overslept and missed it.

Well I couldn't wait any longer and went ahead and ordered from One Good Bumblebee. Remember the post I made awhile ago her neat stuff - well she now has Special Edition Piles of Paper, and you get a secret envelope with your Pile of Paper that could have a gift certificate up to $100. I had to order one, lol. I'll post pics of my super cool pile o'paper when they arrive.

And I finished reading all of Phillipa Gregory's books on the Tudor life. I love them all. I think the most haunting one was The Constant Princess. It makes you wonder how different life would have been had Arthur lived and Henry VIII never became king.
Now I'm onto a new book called Midnight in the Dragon Cafe. It's really good. I'm a little more than halfway through. It's told through the eyes of Su-Jen a little girl who comes to Canada from Communist China with her mother to live with her father in the chinese restaurant he owns in the 50s and 60s. Her mother had an affair with her stepson and I think the father suspects it, but there is so much more to the story. I have a hard time putting it down, but I love books with an asian theme or element.
