You Take the Good, You Take the Bad…

….you take them both and there you have the facts of life. The facts of life!

 Thanks to Becky for reminding me about that great show. Of course, she got it confused with One Day at a Time. But I’m OK with that. And you should be, too. Both were great shows.

 I was never a Blair fan, though. My crush was on Jo — ah, Nancy McKeon.

For those that don’t know One Day at a Time, as Pessimistic Redhead said, Schneider was one of the great characters. He was the superintendent of an apartment building where the main characters lived. And, those main characters were a mom (Bonnie Franklin) and her two daughters (MacKenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli). Ah, pause while visions of Valerie dance in my head.

So there’s your 80s TV moment.

I’m a guest blogger for Clink today. Talk about a step up. If you’re visiting from there, thanks for stopping by. If you haven’t been there, check her blog out. Great stuff. And today, you’ll learn about how I got engaged. It’s a cool story.

Anna and I are playing Sick Kid Poker. I wasn’t able to go to the doctor yesterday with Renee and Aidan, so she called with the news.  Anna and I have been sharing sick kid stories this week. She sits in the office next to mine, and I just said, “Ear infection and bronchitis.”

She replied, “I see your ear infection with bronchitis and raise you one ear infection and a sinus infection.” I guess you had to be there. But it was funny. What’s not funny are sick kids. Aidan is on the mend though. Even slept until 7 today.

Am getting a cold though. So that sucks.

I think that’s all I got for right now. Afterall, this is really second post of the day. 🙂

What else? I got nothin’.

    Hi, sick too. Blech. My second comment of the day – GREAT POST! 🙂

    Sick kid poker. That’s too funny. Why is that when one gets sick, it seems they all spend the rest of the season passing stuff around and just morphing it into even nastier versions with each go-round? Yuck. Sick kids are no fun. I sure hope Aidan feels better soon.

    Your guest post was awesome.

    Also Jo was my favorite as well, and thanks because now I COMPLETELY have that song in my head. Thanks. Really. I like it. Seriously.
