What Have We Been Up To

Our house was hit!! This is what our counter looked like.  Each of the 3 kids had fevers for 5 days and they were one after another which meant 15 days of being in the house with sick kids.  I think we went through 4 bottles of Motrin. Just when I thought we were in the clear.  I got hit and was flat in bed for 3 days with a fever.  I haven't had a fever like that for a long time and wow does it wipe your body out.  If only there were sick days in the moms job description.  It seems like the work is never done when you are health but after being sick for 3 days it felt like major catch up. 

 I felt the need to spring clean a little early and disinfect our whole house after 2 weeks of sick little ones and sick germs all over.  So the last week this is what has been on my counter.  

This week the focus has been packing and preparing for 8 days with my husband on the beach recooping, relaxing and enjoying some time for just us.  We have been busy getting suitcases packed for papa and grammy's house and lists made.  I can't wait to be in a warm sunny place, walking the beach with Eric watching a beautiful sunset, yummy dinners with my husband, chips and guacamole by the pool, sleeping in  and taking a little nap or reading a book on the pool side mattress below!! There is even a Starbucks across from our resort!  I think I get a little spoiled having some morning coffee on the beach! Maybe if I have some down time and post some pictures on our trip otherwise I'll fill you in when we get back!
