This past weekend was full of activity. But is that different from any other weekend, day, hour, or moment in our family?

Micki has strep throat. She had it really bad last week. Stinkin’ kids at school… She went to the doctor and got some antibiotics to help. Thursday. So, Friday she laid low while Grace played with friends and I worked on the basment. We had officially booked our high-end babysitter/friend/co-worker/fellow U2 efficionado Sherry to come Friday night. Micki sick. Sherry coming. Micki sick. Should stay home.

But we didn’t. We hadn’t been out on a date for awhile and just wanted to hang out together. So we went low key and did Don Pablos in BC, then jetted over to the mall. Sherry was having some friends over after she tucked in G. So, being the lame old people we are, we called to make sure WE were staying out late enough for Sherry to have fun at the Shimmy Shack [our house]. We sheepishly arrived around 9:30. EARLY. But no biggie. Sherry’s friends came over anyway and had fun soaking in the tubby-tub. Hope they’ll make a habit out of it. Something built into our DNA: “Share what you have. It’s not yours anyway.”

So, before Sherry [AKA: “Sher-Bear”, no, really, I’m serious. Grace free-styled that nickname] tucked in Grace, she tried out a cool new feature of her blog. She had Grace read the bed time story into her cell phone and it automatically posted on her blog site. So cool. Just like Sherry.

So, if you’re having a hard time sleeping and need a good bed time story, shimmy on over to Sherry’s Blog and hear Grace “virtually” tuck you into bed.

Thanks Sherry! U da Bombdiggety!
