Happy Birthday RDA!

And who is RDA? Why this is the affectionate nickname for Richard Dean Anderson in the Crepeau household. Richard. Dean. Anderson. (said w/ smokers husky Patti and Selma voices) Now I do not have many celebrity crushes. Even as a hormonal teenager, it was pretty much limited to Zack Morris, MacGyver and Captain Jean Luc Picard. I know, I have weird celebrity crushes when I have them, with the exception of Zack Morris. But seriously, RDA is something like 57 today, and he still looks good. Yes, Matt is ok with my RDA crush, as he is now a big RDA fan due to a little show called Stargate SG-1, of which my brother has graciously loaned us boxed sets of seasons 1-6.

Waiting Impatiently

For the guy to come fix our heater! Seriously, why do your appliances always go out at the worst possible time? Our furnace has been sputtering since yesterday evening, and it is downright frigid in here. Of course,we called the gas company, and they won't come fix it b/c it's MLK day. Luckily I was able to find a private company that's open today.

Ooooh! Guy's here! Yes! Apparently it's the igniter. Uh huh. Yup, sure thing.

It's a houseloaf really. Made of real houseparts, but doesn't quite seem to take on that real house quality most of the time. Oh well, at least we won't freeze tonight.

Toddler Math

Ok, I am not good at math. But I can't figure out how exactly David was able to kick a cold in a couple of days that has laid me out since Weds. He was miserable for Fri evening and all day yesterday, but this evening is fine. I, on the other hand, have not been able to talk louder than a hoarse whisper for 3 days. So the real question is, how exactly am I going to keep up with a healthy toddler when I'm sick, when I can't keep up with him when I'm healthy?
