First things first: All the Foodies out there, go check out Mighty Girl's trip to the French Laundry. Intel is sponsoring her Mighty Life List and it's been fun following along. She's also the one who gave me the idea of making a quilt using all of the kid's pajamas that were worn on Christmas Eve night.

Okay. Justin gets home last night and starts telling me about the sickness of a coworker's husband. I'm finishing up dinner, the kids are hungry, loud, and I'm halfway listening.
Turns out he has a parasite. "How on earth did I get a parasite?" he asks his doctor. They start talking about it and found the answer. "My wife went to India a little bit ago". Bingo. My ears perk up now.
Turns out his wife, who was with Justin on the last trip to India, picked up a parasite while there and is a carrier. It can lie dormant in the carrier and can be passed along. So, Justin is visiting his doctor this week to see if he's carrying anything around also. He will also be asking if I'm needing to come in and be tested.
Remember back to one of his previous trips. I got sick about a month and a half after he got home and was prescribed the same medicine that they're given when they go to India to prevent the growth of parasitic bacteria in case they feel that they've eaten something bad. Not sure if they're connected, but ew. Ew, ew, ew.
Let's take our minds off that and talk about the cute pants Vaughn got in the mail yesterday. Red! With big pink heart patches on the knees! They're adorable! I'm feeling frenzied because of the cooler weather and the kids not having fall clothes. Many shopping trips have been made, because Vance is in between toddler and big guy sizes and Vaughn is just overall hard to size. Grrr....
Out of time! Have a great day!
Oh! Vaughn can open baby gates and doors now. Soon she'll be crawling out of her crib! Nothing can contain her!
