Spoke too soon

So, do you remember my last post in which I declared the Robinson household healthy. I spoke too soon. To say I jinxed myself would be putting it mildly. In fact, I jinxed the entire family with the exception of Nigel. Nora had a head cold that clogged her ears so badly that she could hardly hear. She was laid up all weekend and missed school on Monday. A stomach bug, no stomach monster, laid waist to me. I spent the weekend curled up in a ball on the couch. On the plus side I did get to see most of the weekends football games. I tried to go to work yesterday, but two days with no food took a toll on my energy level. I came home and went back to bed. Robin was worn out from taking care of Nora and I, and chasing down, entertaining and generally wrangling a fully healthy and energized Nigel. Today Nora went to school, I made it to work, Nigel was being Nigel, and Robin did not have to play nurse to anyone. I am not going to say it, but....

We are currently getting ready to begin our January tradition of watching American Idol. I know, it is a guilty pleasure, but who can resist the horrible auditions? They are absolutely fantastic. We do eventually tire of the bad singing and are taken in by the talent. Although last year was a bit of a disappointment. The show did not seem to have "it" like in the past. We are hoping this year will be better, but there is a good chance it has run its course.

Word of the day...

supererogatory (soo-puhr-uh-ROG-uh-tor-ee) adjective
1. Going beyond the call of duty.
2. Superfluous.

Have a great night.
