Outside my is sunny and breezy, the blinds are doing that click click click thing.

I am thinking...about how much I hate being sick (which I am), I actually ended up in the ER yesterday for a much needed IV because I was getting dehydrated--more than once I almost passed out.

I am thankful for...friends like Caryn and David who helped us out yesterday, the kids for being so self sufficient, and especially for the best husband in the world.

From the learning rooms...sick day for me, at least it's Presidents Day so most kids don't have school anyway. Jonathan and Madi do have a lot of reading to do and hopefully some math.

From the kitchen...nothing but popsicles, gatorade, and gingerale for me...everyone else is on their own!

I am wearing...mis-matched jammies.

I am creating...we were doing a good job on our big planted area out back on Saturday, but that came to a screeching halt yesterday.

I am going...nowhere!!

I am reading...The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes. Jonathan and Madi and I are reading Stone Fox (school) and The Cure of Ars (Catholic book club) aloud. Jake and I are in the middle of Junie B Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentine. I finished Behind the Bedroom Wall is for our mother-daughter bookclub about Nazi was fantastic!!

I am get better soon!!

I am hearing...the kids downstairs.

Around the house...I'm not so sure, I barely went downstairs yesterday.

One of my favorite things...being healthy!

A few plans for the rest of my week...I have no idea, it all depends on how I feel, I'm praying the rest of my family doesn't get sick!!

Here is a picture thought I'm sharing...Yesterday was my brother Rob's and my friend Pam's birthday and even though neither of them read my blog, I love them anyway!

I do hope you are better soon Julie. Rest is so important for moms to get back in the swing of things. I did most of our school from my bed today. I can tel I am fighting something.
