Supper Mom?

T was suppose to make dinner for me this evening. When I got home he was eating beefaroni. Or some such thing. So instead of having made dinner he chose to make himself a ‘snack.’

I let loose with a bit of sarcasm that T took to be the truth. After I screeched at him he came out and made dinner. Spaghetti. Well the first burner ended up with spaghetti in it and began smoking. The back burner also smoking. We finally struck upon the front right burner was working.

Frist though was waiting for the water to boil. Little bubbles begin to form so T thinks that now he can throw the spaghetti in. I get up and go over to look. It was not a roiling boil. We both started laughing as he attempted to say roiling boil 5x fast. It is very hard to do.

We set the timer for 8 minutes and he waited. And waited. When the timer went off he wanted to know if he could throw it against the wall to check it. And it stuck. The kid made good spaghetti in the first try. He did forget about the sauce but that was quickly remedied.

Bringing the bowl to me it only filled a quarter of the way. I asked for a little bit more and was informed that I was very needy.

It was a good dinner and T has added another item to his cooking repertoire with which to wow friends and his father. 🙂

Had To Be Tested

When T came home on Sunday he had the sniffles.
Nothing major not enough to alarm me at all.
He had had for a couple of days or it just started on Sunday I have yet to figure that one out.
 
When I got home from work on Monday T told me he was not feeling well.
Stuffy nose that would not stop running.
Head.
His throat was a little sore.
His buddy had had a cold the previous week so again I was in no way concerned.
Tuesday he was a little hot, still not feeling well and wanting to sleep.
So I agreed to him staying home.
I would rather be safe than sorry.
 
Yesterday I woke up and my throat was a little scratchy.
And my nose was stuffy.
And I was coughing.
I knew it was a cold.
I am positive it is a cold.
Yet T was still not feeling 100%.
I hemmed and hawed but eventually I called Health Links.
And after answering their questions they recommended that we be tested.
For Covid.
Or self isolate for 10 days.
 
No not isolating for 10 days so I called and made an appointment.
We were going to get our brains poked.
 
Our appointment was for 9:20 we were back home by 10.
And it was not that bad.
Head back.
Eyes closed.
In went swab.
Found the spot.
Twirl for 10 seconds.
I crossed my fingers and my eyes were fluttering wildly but I held still.
 
Then it was T’s turn.
And he took it like a champ as well.
Except he really wanted to sneeze.
 
Now we are waiting.
We were told 2-3 days with today being day 1.
T is really hoping we get them today because he is feeling better and wants to go to bubble soccer tomorrow night with his friend J.
Other than the lingering cough and stuffy nose I feel fine.
Fastest cold I have ever had given that tomorrow I will most likely be 95% or so.
Will let y’all know how it turns out.
