There are high winds tonight. It started with a flash of lightening and a big clap of thunder that sent the cats scurrying for a hiding place. I got up awhile ago and they came creeping back into the living room. Must have gotten enough sleep to be awake now. I'll head back to bed soon.

Vicki, the new rules are really invasive. Good grief - how many of us have pets and we don't crate them during meals and our children survived.

Well, back to bed.

The "letter" I got today was 17 pages long of all the changes. Most of them I was aware of a year or two ago when they were just talking about them but figured they had been dropped as I hadn't heard any more. Another one of the new rules is that if you have pets of any kind you must write up a plan of action about their care and any contact the kids would have with them. They cannot be in the kitchen or dining areas during any food prep time or meals and must be caged or kenneled during those times. You also can not have a feeding or water dish on the floor. We do not have any pets now so it isn't an issue for me. Of course there are lots of other rules in regards to pets (shots, etc) that only make sence. I am licensed for 1 week of age through 12 years.

Well, have to be getting to bed. Have an early morning.

It's been a lovely day here. I hope all the sicky's get a good nights rest and feel better tomorrow.

Vicki, strange to hear you say you don't want a fence around your back yard. You must have a good size one. Those of us city dwellers with 50 x 100 ft lots all have our back yard fenced. I suppose they don't want the little ones wandering off. Don't you just care for babies? It must be so hard for you knowing your DH isn't getting his mobility back.

I was all prepared this morning for the house next doors construction project to begin. I think this has been in the process for about 5 years. It didn't happen today. The builder put his sign up on the lawn about a month ago and that's as far as it gotten.

I've been sleeping a lot today. When I got up this morning I looked in the mirror and told DH & DS my hair looked like Andrew Jacksons! This is just a full-blown cold but I don't want to repeat the bronchitis I had in November.

Shar, sorry to hear you are under the weather. I remember the days of doing child care and being sick - usually got it from the little ones. I think I only had to close once and that was when my best friend passed away. I hope this passes you by quickly.

Vicki, I can't believe they could demand child care providers put up a fence. Home child care doesn't bring in the funds to do stuff like that and yet I'm convinced good home is very valuable. I'm sorry to hear your DH is having so much pain.

Carol, There are spurts where I don't get Sparkmail and then it starts up again.

Carol, I didn't get my sparkpeople email for a long time. I finally set up a yahoo mail account and changed my spark address over to that and now I finally get them. It is a pain to have to go there for my mail but it is kind of nice to have them separate from all my other mail. I hope you can resolve it.

Shar,
I tell my families that they need to have a back up sitter in case I am closed or am sick. I think I have only called twice in the early morning to let families know that I was sick in 24 years! I try to give at least a month notice if we plan a vacation or a day closed.

Feel good again today so whatever made me so miserable on Saturday only lasted that one day. I am so glad! I hope everyone else under the weather feels better just as quick!

The sun is shining here today again but it is only 17 degrees now at almost 1 pm. Brrrrr!

Hubby had an MRI with contrast dye this morning on his shoulder. He has had a LOT of pain since he tried walking again. I am really worried about him and wonder if he is ever going to be able to walk the way he did before this.

Got a letter from the state today about changes to the child care licensing rules. Being I have been licensed before Jan 1st this year I have till Jan. 1, 2010 to put up a 4 foot fence or a vegitation border outside around the play area. There was talk about this a few years ago but never heard any more about it. I told hubby that if it ever came to that, that would be the day I was done! I will not put up a fence. Our yard is landscaped and none of the neighbors have fences. I won't do it. I may be looking for a job come the end of the year! And we don't know what is going to happen with hubby, if he is ever going to be able to go back to work. I'm thinking that he isn't going to be able to but it is a wait and see right now (still!).

How is your day going?

Vicki

Shar, so sorry you're under the weather, hope you feel better soon. I haven't been getting my e-mails from SparkPeople, and am just getting caught up. Has anyone else not been getting them?

Happy belated birthday to Louise! I hope it was a special day for you.
I am very under the weather today. I think I have caught the bug for sure. My head feels like it is splitting in half for sure! Hubby is doing a lot of coughing. I suppose I caught if from one of mylittle ones as they have all been sick also. I am trying to take it as easy as I can but that is hard to do with 6 all under the age of 5. Someone asked Vicki what she does when she is ill since she does childcare also. I always tell my parents to have a back up or I find one for them if they don't have one before I take them on. But so far I have not had to take any time off for being sick. I hate calling early in the morning but sometimes you do what you have to do. So taking it easy here for me today. What about the rest of you?

Shar
