My throat has been hurting since last week sometime. It got really bad on Sunday so I decided to go to the clinic here on base and do a walk in throat culture. It was negative. But as is always the case, they sent it to the lab. They called me this morning and told me it cultured positive. Did you know that only 5% of the cultures sent to the lab are actually positive? Hence my membership in the ELITE group. I now belong to the 5%. I know you're jealous. Really you shouldn't be. I know it's hard to let me have my glory. Husband gone for two months, five kids, CRAZY dog, Primary presidency, cold weather, and a bad hair-do. I realize how envious you all must be. But you really should just be grateful for your lot in life and let me have mine. Come on.
On a totally different note, for the first time in almost eight years, we no longer have a baby in the house. Seth has graduated to full toddler hood. He no longer uses the high chair, and sleeps in a big boy bed. Before I know it, we'll be potty training and I'll no longer have one in diapers. By the time that happens, it will be the first time in EIGHT YEARS. Can't say I'll be sad about that.
