Blink, blink, nose wiggle.


I am sitting at my computer (on the couch, in pjs), sick as a dog. I have been sick all week and the kids were sick even earlier (they are who made me sick). The husband got in last night from his week in Munchen, so I sent him off to the pool with the kids for Thing1's lesson (he will swim with Thing2 while 1 is learning). I packed their bag, their clothes, their snacks, their water shoes, their cover ups and towels. I told the husband he needed to add his swim trunks and water shoes and have 1 euro for the locker.

He just called me from the swimhall to tell me he forgot his trunks.

What should I do? I tried teleportation, but it didn't work. Crossing my arms and blinking hard didn't work either.

(edit- I ran down in my pjs and gave him the trunks- I guess my suggestion of borrowing a pair from the Lost & Found didn't fly.)

Never could work out why it is that when 'they' forget something, it is 'our' fault...

Gute Besserung
Get Well Soon... don't give it to me, I had it over Christmas and that was enough.

Got some Chicken Soup on the burner?

Exactly what my mom said, but since there are no edible canned German soups, the answer is no. I did make a very good chili two days ago, but the kids can't eat it, so I have salmon and rice in the oven. Tomorrow I will go to the Arab market and buy: chicken, onions, carrots, dill, celery, celery root and parsle. then I can make the soup and by afternoon, perhaps rest and enjoy it:).I usually have some in the freezer, but I have been running the freezer down in expectation of moving quite soon (within Berlin, I'll post more later).

Thanks for visiting our blog and I appreciated your comment. I agree that the DanActive drink is too sweet.
I had to laugh at the forgotten trunks - why does it seem that when men get married they check their memories at the door?

You are a better wife than me. He would have had to figure out something that didn't involve getting me sick butt off of the couch.....
