I am grateful and happy to announce that I am finally on the mend! I am so appreciative of "good health" now, that I am almost bounding through the house doing my chores. I'm not bounding too much though, because I don't want overdue it. This weekend I refused to do anything at all, cancelling all previous engagements and skipped church.
The new healthy me!
I laid around all day and slept for a lot of it, by Sunday evening my migraine had subsided with the help of a regime of Ibuprofen every four hours. Monday my sore throat came back and Tuesday I went to the doctor and she announced that it was one of the reddest she had ever seen. She sent a culture out and prescribed antibiotics for the next 10 days. Anyway, this is the first day in weeks that I've felt like myself. Yeah for me!
My house order is getting back on track, it's amazing what one day of good health can do to a messy home! The worst part about it was the dust that had accumulated on our hard wood floors, mainly under the beds. I have been busy packing for our trip and are really excited to be leaving very soon. This is my last post before setting off, there's no way I can blog and get ready - it would be crazy and frantic! Before we leave for a trip I spent at least a week picking out my wardrobe. There is nothing worse than realizing when you get to your destination that nothing in your suitcase is going to work! Am I the only one?
I also spent time picking up little toys and coloring items for the girls, things they can do while on the plane and while we are waiting.
And I always have on hand some baby wipes and a couple good books to read for me too. The book I've been dying to read is the The Monsters of Templeton. I don't like to preview books online, I like a good mystery, something I can determine whether I like or not - so we'll see if this is any good. At least the cover is pretty cool! I also am starting to read books that might help me transition into the older girl stage - any suggestions?
Paper dolls ready for our trip.
I found these paper dolls at our dollar store. There were six sheets of dolls and outfits which I had to cut out. I got four pages done before realizing I just didn't have time for the rest. each doll comes also comes with a paper stuffed animal which you can also dress up, a name, and a little story that goes with it. I thought it would be fun to put in the girl's bag.
Thank you so much for your kind words about my health and about the song. I am very lucky girl to have so many friends out there! Take care and I will be on your blogs by tonight to see how you are.
btw - I realized a mistake in my Valentine post about the wonderful blogging friends on my sidebar - I missed Carlo! I am so sorry so without further ado, this is why I have Carlo on my sidebar: Witty, caring, creative, heartfelt posts, and truthful.
Thanks for everything! And thank goodness Spell check is back and working!
