in other news...
i was up coughing half the night.
not fun.
poor scout master was very patient.
rubbed my shoulders when i asked.
love him.
heard the pork loin making "dinosaur sounds" at the tv this morning.
also heard him make the "n" sound while watching "super why."
i smiled and patted myself on the back for letting him watch evil television.
b/c we do watch it.
every single day.

The scoutmaster and loin are lucky to have you, o wondrous cook that you are. Seriously.

Hope your cough goes away soon. I just hate when I'm coughing in the middle of the night. The worst!
