Home again, home again...

So, we had a nice holiday weekend. Got home Saturday night. The kids did pretty well with the drive overall, aside from doing the stereotypical "are we there yet?" a bit more often than was funny, especially Kaylee who has no concept of time yet.  Cousin Josh is as cute as can be, and it was great to catch up with his parents too.  His mommy's having a bit of a rough pregnancy, but still managed to do a fabulous job with the Thanksgiving meal, and finally gave in after we all insisted she go lie down afterwards.  It's hard to believe how big my nieces (the other sister's kids) are getting at 10, 12, and 14.  It makes me feel old to remember them running around as toddlers. ;)

Unfortunately, Kaylee has come down with some sort of cold or flu or something and has been running a fever and coughing since Sunday.  She had a really rough night last night, which means Mark and I had a rough night too, and I'm really feeling it.  I've also had a sore throat today.  Ugh.  I so do not want to be sick again after I just got over whatever it was I had before.  I started in on the Zicam this evening and am hoping this doesn't turn into something major, but it's slowing me down big time already.  I had to go take a nap after Matthew's homework today, and I'm going to be heading back to bed again here shortly.  

So if I'm still a bit absent online this week, that's why.  Send me some get well quick vibes.  We've barely even started on the Christmas decorations, which are normally done by now, and have not done one lick of gift shopping yet. I'm trying so hard to fight off my Grinch tendencies, but it's going to be a tough battle if I'm sick. *Sigh.*

aw, geez, Kim so sorry you're feeling sick again, and Kaylee too!

I hope that the Grinch feelings exit your body soon, and you're feeling in the Holiday Spirit again soon!
