    I was soooo tired today, little ziti was up all night last night with either a cold or the beginning of the flu.....no fun for me. Hopefully tonight will be better. All of that said dinner tonight was leftover tacos.

    Not sure what the rest of the week holds. Guess it just depends how much attention little ziti needs.

    Anyone heard from RFB lately???
