Quite the stormy week around here…
We began with a delayed school opening on Monday.
Then the big storm hit Wednesday night
and school was called off for Thursday.
The kids (and the dog)
were in the backyard playing in the snow by 8:30 am.
Rosie could have stayed out there all day!
And I think we ended up with 7 to 8 inches
on top of what we already had.
The boys worked hard on shoveling the sidewalk.
But by evening we wondered if the snow plow guy
would ever show up and clear the driveway!
Luckily by this morning we were plowed out
and back to school!
(With a 2 hour delay of course!)
But the snow wasn’t the only “storm” I had to deal with this week. Last Friday night I felt a little tired when we took the kids out to dinner. Didn’t think much about it…Then later that night I woke up with a slight fever which turned to chills, body aches, congestion, sore throat….Let’s just say I haven’t had the best week.
I can’t remember the last time I was basically useless for days. A couple of the days I literally stayed in bed almost continuously. I really only started to feel better yesterday and even then (and now) I couldn’t do much because I feel weak very fast. Drinking tons of hot tea, resting and eating chicken soup has pretty much been my routine. My eyes were watery and I had so much head congestion that I didn’t even read much. Basically, I flipped though TV channels, read some of my favorite blogs and scanned through Instagram. So I want to thank all you bloggers out there who provided me with pretty things to look at and allowing me to keep my mind off of being sick.
And I want to thank Rosie for keeping me entertained….
I think she knew I wasn’t feeling well
because she was right by my side all week.
(When she wasn’t prancing around in the snow with the kids!)
Love this dog.
And thank you to my wonderful husband for taking care of dinners, dishes, kids, homework…just about everything. The house ran surprisingly smooth this week besides the occasional brother disagreements and bedtime shenanigans. Thank you to my darling boys for “tucking me in” and making me love being your mommy even more!
Feeling sick really makes you appreciate all the things in life to be thankful for…just as a loooooooonnnngggg snowy winter really make you appreciate spring! It’s gotta be here soon….
How is your weather?
Has anyone come down with the flu in your house?
