I'm so Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo hoo!


A tribute to my favorite Veggie Tales character: Madame Blueberry...

I'm so Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo hoo! I'm so Blue I don't know what to do! I'm so Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo hoo! I'm so Blue with a case of the flu!
I'm so Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo hoo! I'm so Blue I don't know what to do! I'm so Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo, Blue-hoo-hoo hoo! I'm so blue my husband now has the flu!

But in keeping with the "Lesson of Thankfulness" that Madame Blueberry displays, I am thankful that my children have yet to come down with it! I also have to say that I am very thankful for my husband! He worked 18 hour days during the week, took care of me and the kids all weekend and tried to squeeze in homeowrk and study time in preparation for today's critical checkride (final "test" to complete the primary portion of flight school)- an exhausting schedule. He has been working so hard for the past year to get to this point. So when he came home sick yesterday unable to fly-we were both devastated! But he was such a trooper! Between runs to the bathrom yesterday, he sat at the table, with a bucket by his side, and finished his flight plan for today's final checkride. I don't know how he did it but I was purely impressed! His pure willpower and sheer determination (ok, and a few doses of Airborne) are what got him out of bed today at 4 am to go attempt to complete his checkride. I am so incredibly proud of him!

Well I read your post after I sent the first "comment". Go Toby! He is a trooper, sheesh! Hope he gets better soon and can enjoy some of his time off.

What are you gonna do to show your appreciation for your veteran?

Oh, what a guy!
And I love Madame Blueberry! She rocks!
Oh, I got a sneak peek at the new Veggie Movie coming out, and it is cute!

Go him! Sounds like he is truly a trooper! I hope that you and he both feel better very soon and that the kids don't get it either!
