I'm Here

I forgot to tell you that I am still here, just that the "here" keeps changing. You can follow where "here" is by clicking here.

It Starts With a "W"

Have you seen the movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding?"  No, then you should go watch it, I think it is a very funny movie.  I would wait to finish my post till after you were done watching, but that wouldn't be fair to those who have seen it and want to keep reading, now would it?

One of the funny parts of the movie is the father always using Windex to cure everything, and the family rolling their eyes at dad and his crazy idea.

In my family, I'm the crazy one (no comments from the peanut gallery) who suggests one thing to cure everything that ails.  The children are the ones to roll their eyes and think I've lost my marbles.  What is this one thing?  Water.  Yes, plain, simple water.

Kid: My stomach hurts.
Me: Drink a glass of water and let me know how it feels afterward.

Kid (not necessarily the same one): I'm hot.
Me: Drink a glass of water.

Kid (not necessarily the same one): I'm hungry.
Me: Drink a glass of water, you're probably thirsty.

Kid (not necessarily the same one): I have a headache.
Me: When did you last drink a glass of water?  Then go drink one.

Kid (do I really need to type it again?): I'm starting to not feel very good.
Me: Then I want you to drink a glass of water now, and after lunch, and in the afternoon, and after supper.

You get the picture - right?  You would also think that with all this talk, there would be a lot more water action.  But sadly, the kids still think they know more than their wise mama and continue to roll their eyes at me.

I can't wait until their future spouse answers them when asked how they got over "x,y,or z" answers, "I drank some water."
