It's good to be back!! After an overwhelming month of sickness we are finally feeling well again. Somehow we ALL managed to get sick enough to require antibiotics - it was pitiful and almost embarrassing that we were all sick. We work hard to make good, healthy choices but I guess sometimes you just can't outrun colds and flu-bugs when they knock down the door. Here's what we were dealing with...
Hannah - a head cold, a nasty ear infection (antibiotics for this) and the flu
Paul - a head cold that turned into Bronchitis (and yes, antibiotics)
Wyatt - a head cold followed by the flu which triggered two bouts of asthma issues (back on puffers and meds)
Me - a head cold, sinus infection (yet again... antibiotics) and the flu!!
It was quite a ride - Hannah and I ended up at my parents' house for two days so that my Mom could help us out - I had a fever that stayed around 102 for 4 days - I was useless - everything ached for about a week and a half. Just can't thank my Mom and Dad enough for taking such good care of us!! It was the best place to be - lots of love and kindness and even a 'hot-toddy' and a few good laughs in the midst of all the sickness.
I can't tell you how good it feels to feel good again. We are so thankful to have our health back - the world seems a little brighter, everything is sweeter and more fabulous. We are more than ready for the spring and all the great projects we can tackle. And... the SUN is shining! Gotta love that!
Easter was good - lots of visiting, sharing, laughing and CHOCOLATE!! The kids made it back to school in time to colour eggs with their class and enjoy some Easter fun with their school friends. Here are a few of my favourite photos...
And now we are ready to get back to our regular schedule - Paul and the kids will be back at school and I am looking forward to organizing, sewing (I haven't forgotten Candace!!), baking (inspired by Molly's post on lemon poppy-seed cake) and some other crafty projects to spruce up our little home and add some more SOUL!!
Happy Easter Monday!!
