Wacky Monday

Last night Dominick complained at dinner his tummy hurt, sent him to lay down, fell asleep, woke up at 11m, running to the bathroom to throw up, continued until 4am, he is now sleeping.....really bad part of it is that today was the first day of SPRING soccer practice, and now he is not going. Also he had an appointment to get his implement and first part of his braces on, well they don't want any where near his mouth, not that I blame him.

AND it is SNOWING! Yes, big white flakes, sticking to everything. Does mother nature know what in the heck she is doing, the crocus and daffodils are blooming, and it looks like December out there.

What else can strange happen today??
