cooties cooties everywhere

This weekend, Angel #4's friend called to find out how to get rid of lice...I found a way that really worked well last time #4 had them. The friend came over to our house today and her mother hadn't done a thing! That poor little girl had ukos (they're so common here that the Hawaiians have their own word for them) so bad you could see them crawling around her hair by just looking at her. Can you imagine a parent that supposedly cares about her child letting something like that happen? The girls dad gets so frustrated because he'll deal with them when she's at his house, but they just come back again when she's with her mother. Well, I did the olive oil treatment on her head while she was here and combed all the nits out that I could find. I gave the nit comb to her dad when he came to pick her up and hopefully, he'll get rid of the problem. I hate to tell the angel not to play with someone, but dang, getting rid of ukos is such a pain in the butt there's no way I want her hanging around someone who's just crawling with the buggers.

I forgot to do Book Review Tuesday yesterday, so I'll do it today instead. The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan; classic diet recipe cards from the 1970's by Wendy McClure The author was helping her mother clean out their basement when she found a stack of Weight Watchers recipe cards from the 70's. The book contains pictures of these cards, along with the author's hilarious commentary. The food looks hideous and the props vary from silly to downright scary looking. Angel #2 and I giggled our way through the entire book.
