Sick, sick, sick....

So I realize I haven't posted in about a week. I've been so sick with some sort of cold thing that has just zapped all of my energy. It started last week on Tuesday night and has been up and down since then. I've had it all... the fever, the sore throat, the headaches... you name it! So needless to say, I haven't been feeling well lately. I'm still not feeling normal.

Then last week some things happened that required my husband to be at work a little more. That left Momma home with 2 wild children and a nasty cold and a pregnancy.... so I was more than happy when my dad said he was coming to town Thursday and we could come back home with him. And that is exactly what we did.

We had a relaxing weekend on the lake with Pappy. I, of course, didn't take any pictures because it was all I could do to keep up with both of my girls and my husband all weekend. The girls love the lake... we did a lot of swimming and a lot of snacking. My Crazy 2-year-old will tell you, when you ask her what she does on Pappy's boat, "swim in the water and eat chips and drink capri suns".

Pappy fed us powdered donuts for breakfast (which was a big hit with the girls!) and cooked some of our favorite meals and took us to some of our favorite restaurants. It would take a couple of weeks to go to all of our favorite restaurants in Mountain Home and for Pappy to cook all of our favorite foods, but we had a nice sampling this weekend.

Saturday we were discussing lunch options and I said I would like to go eat at my favorite BBQ place. The hubby decided he wanted to vote for his favorite burger place (which I also love). I won, of course, but I was so glad that my sweet husband has some favorite places of his own in my hometown.... He's almost a local! :)

We got back pretty late last night so today the girls and I are just relaxing and catching up on laundry and a few other things around here. I realize that this post is beyond boring.... I'm just too drained to be cute or creative or intelligent. :) Maybe next time.

I'm happy to hear you're on the mend. Not long after finding out I was pregnant, I got sick...right when I couldn't take meds of any sort! I hope you're back to 100% soon.

Sounds like you guys had a good time in MH!

I'm glad your feeling better! School starts on the 19th of August. I can't wait. I want the students to come back so I can meet them and get into a normal routine. Hope things are going great for you all!
