Our Crazy Little Life

Germs and sickness have hit our little family hard this year. January brought a nasty feverish flu which revealed itself while we were driving back from California. Illness on car rides is a treat. February brought a cough so hard that stomach juice seemed to be spewing out with each cough. March brought another flu which I am happy to report all three children came out alive and well -- we did, however, lose a few pillows to the virus. April has brought the hives to me and distorted my face for a few days. Think Will Smith in Hitch. That was me. Yikes. Good thing those marriage vows include "for better or for worse." I did remind my husband of those vows. He, of course, rolled his eyes at me for the reminder and being the wonderful Love that he is, continued scratching my arms and legs while I rubbed my eyes and ears. One simply doesn't have enough hands to manage all the scratching necessary to survive the hives.

  • My sisters kids managed to pick up our flu virus while visiting from Nevada and sent us spinning through another round of bodily fluid eruptions and such sad little faces.

  • We are SO thankful for our wonderful carpet cleaner who cleaned out EVERY nasty spot! And thanks to my Mom for ordering us a fresh bottle of thieves. We've been out since last year when Kate dumped the whole bottle on Isaac's treasure chest. His room smelled of cinnamon and cloves for a very long time:)

  • This blog is being ridiculous and not letting me space out my paragraphs -- hence the bullets:)
