I've worked the last two days, and am not scheduled for anything else this week so I'm gong to catch up on some housework and such. Next week will be tough and not sure how much I will blog since I'll be at school every day next week for some reason or another. I just know it will be crazy busy.

Last night Nicole was complaining of a headache, stuffy nose and had a low grade fever. This morning she said her head was pounding, so we let her stay home, in case its the flu. Please pray that it isn't.

Well bummer, the answers are already given. Although for the president, I'll say Barack Obama -- he hasn't changed his name over the past 34 years :)

Yolk is. Yolks are.
