Not so perfect week . . .

This week started off great! Cameron didn't have school on Monday, so I took the day off and we went to the movies together. Just a little mom and son time. We saw Paul Blart Mall Cop, which was pretty funny.

We came home and I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup. Not too many people know this, but the day my mom passed away, she had just finished making a big pot of her chicken noodle soup - and I hadn't had any like it since. Around the day of the funeral (when we still barely had appetites we were in so much shock) we ate some. That was a sacred pot of soup. So I followed her recipe - and we had some good soup that night.

However, the next morning I woke up really sick. I wasn't sure if it was stomach flu or the soup was bad. But since my family didn't get sick right off - it had to be the flu. However, I was saying that the soup must be cursed. Anyway - Tuesday was a really bad day - I was more sick than I have been in a long time!! Then Wed I was so weak that I still couldn't go to work! But today is much better - now I am just a lot behind on my work stuff. Good news - I lost 5 pounds. Way to kick of my diet, that's for sure!!

Tonight Cameron wanted to play mercy - he thinks he can beat me! Maybe in a couple more years - but not yet. Here is his face of defeat!! Enjoy!
