There has been some sort of “Super Bug” living in my house the past few months. Herman began getting sick just before Thanksgiving and after many weeks of being he merely had a virus a dose of antibiotics fixed his issues. Kat came down with the same thing just after Christmas and a round of antibiotics was all it took for her to get better. I on the other hand have now taken 3 rounds of antibiotics since Thanksgiving. I have gone through an upper respiratory infection, a sinus infections and now I am battling bronchitis.  Here’s hoping that attacking everything in the house with Lysol, Clorox wipes, and straight up bleach will kill it.

I just wanted to apologize for such a slim number of updates lately. We are now in the full swing of Christmas plans. It has been very crazy around here with both Kat and Holly having such full social calendars. We have all been sick at some point since Halloween with various illnesses. Our little exchange group has to see two of the members off this coming weekend. It will involve two separate days of driving to Savannah for us, but we want to be there, so that the students will know that yes they did touch all of our lives.

Hopefully after Christmas, I will have the time and energy to post somke updates and brag a little about how well both Kat and Holly have been doing in school and outside of school.

Still of Puppies on Halloween

Still of Puppies on Halloween

I found this live streaming video of puppies in a box that is too cute for words.  We had a tragedy in the family this week and I don’t really want to discuss it, but feel that I just want to watch cute puppies and kittens instead.  I thought that everyone else might get a little pick-me-up from the video.

This is awesome news. Free Dr. Pepper for everyone in the U.S. of A. .

Below is original announcement/article as reported by Billboard. 

Dr Pepper Sweetens Pot For ‘Chinese Democracy’
March 26, 2008 , 11:30 AM ET       Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Many have tried, but so far nobody has been able to pry the decade-in-the-works Guns N’ Roses album “Chinese Democracy” from the hands of lone remaining original member Axl Rose.
Now, Dr Pepper thinks it’s up to the challenge. The soft drink company says it will give a free can of Dr Pepper to “everyone in America” (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if “Chinese Democracy” arrives anytime during the calendar year 2008.

“It took a little patience to perfect Dr Pepper’s special mix of 23 ingredients, which our fans have come to know and love,” Dr Pepper director of marketing Jaxie Alt says. “So we completely understand and empathize with Axl’s quest for perfection — for something more than the average album. We know once it’s released, people will refer to it as ‘Dr Pepper for the ears’ because it will be such a refreshing blend of rich, bold sounds – an instant classic.”

Dr Pepper has also launched a blog in conjunction with its offer. GNR’s label, Interscope, was unavailable for comment at deadline.    “Chinese Democracy” was most recently scheduled for release on March 6, 2007, but promptly vanished from the schedule without a new date being set. It will be the first Guns N’ Roses album since the 1993 covers collection “The Spaghetti Incident”; in the ensuing decade, the group has burned through a reported $13 million in recording expenses.

Dr Pepper is ready to give out free soda coupons to every American when the album is finally released on Nov. 23, 2008. If you’re out to get a free Dr Pepper just follow these simple steps:

Coupons will be available for 24 hours, starting at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Nov. 23, 2008. Allow 4-6 weeks for coupon to arrive. Coupons will expire on Feb. 28, 2009. Limit one coupon per person. Full terms and conditions available at www.drpepper.com


1. On the Nov. 23, 2008 release date, go to http://www.drpepper.com

2. Register your information to receive a coupon for one free 20-oz. Dr Pepper.

3. When your coupon arrives, redeem it wherever Dr Pepper is sold.

4. Drink your Dr Pepper slowly to experience all 23 flavors. Dr’s orders.
