Update and Tag!

Update: Katie apparently has a virus, not an allergy problem. Her fever persisted all day today and when I noticed little white spots on her tonsils I took her on to the doctor. A strep test came back negative (though she has all the symptoms: no snottiness, but bad headache, fever, sore throat) but they sent a culture to see if something turns up in the next couple of days. We stocked up at Walgreen's on the way home...Zicam for me, sore throat lozenges, more ibuprofen and tylenol, ani-viral tissues, and some new coloring pencils to console the sick babes on the way home.
*sigh* So, I guess it is just the waiting game now. One of two things will happen according to the dr: Either it is a virus and will run its course over 48-72 hours, or it will turn out to be strep and we will find out and get something going. The good news is either way we should be well by the weekend!

Now, on to something more fun: A tag!

I can't remember if I have ever been tagged for a meme before, maybe I have, but I did actually try to find some sort of explanation for the word in itself. Apparently there is some historic/sociological definition as it being a word used for things that are passed down from generation to generation but may be mutated or changed...not genetic things, but things like habits, traditions, etc. Another definition I found, pertaining to the world of blogs was this:

meme: an idea, project, statement or even a question that is posted by one blog and responded to by other blogs. ...

I was tagged by Marcy to complete the "one word" meme. I have to answer each question with only one word. Then I get to "tag" 5 more people to do the meme on their blogs. I find it very difficult to even think about having to confine my answers to ONE WORD! AGH! Here goes:

1. Where is your cell phone? bedroom
2. Where is your significant other? asleep
3. Your hair color? brown
4. Your mother? scrapbooker
5. Your father? thinker
6. Your favorite thing? family

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? asleep
13. Where were you last night? home
14. What you're not? daring
15. One of your wish-list items? Quelf

19. Your TV? off
20. Your pet? scaly
