Three-day Memorial weekend? Yep.
Guest from out of town coming in? Check.
Big barbeque on Monday? You betcha.
Baptism to attend Saturday night? Oh yeah.
Four-year-old tests positive for strep? Of course.
That may explain part of the general combative atmosphere. And now (since the lab called, before the antibiotic arrives home) the girls are playing like a dream, and sharing cups, and hugging each other, and kissing the baby. No, girls, not that!
