Sick Monday...

Yes, we've finally managed to catch something in our house too!  Stuff has really been going around and we did well until the end of this past week.  Nathan had 8 kids absent from his class on Friday!  Now not only have I been sick for days, but am now on antibiotics after going to the doctor this morning.  Nathan is home with me today too since he started getting sick yesterday.  The dr said if he's not better by Thurs, to bring him back!  I sure hope he's better by then!!! 

Kyle was mad because he still had to go to school this morning, but little does he know, that's probably a good thing!  He was at a Cubs event all day yesterday too, so he has been out of the house and that may be part of why he's still healthy at this point.  Kyle has a great time at his Cub Skills event though and was learning things like knot tying and how to light a fire.  Pretty cool!

Haven't been doing too much creatively lately though I did have fun with my classes on Saturday - especially the Exploding Box!  I did want to share a couple of cards done by my friend Alexis though!  The card above and below are just a couple of the hundreds she and her mum made to sell to raise money to help support a needy family over the holidays!  Amazing job Alexis and hope everything went really well yesterday!

Well, thinking that's it for today.  Going to go hunker down and relax.  Hoping the meds I'm taking don't upset my stomach too much which they're apparently prone to do.  One of those great things where they tell you the more you eat, the less likely your stomach will be upset, but if it's upset, you don't want to eat!  Such is life!  It's one of those days where you're thankful for the little things and I was reminded of that while in the doctor's office this morning.  Even though I'm not feeling good, it could be much worse. 

"Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it."
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Thanks for the shout out! You're a doll. Sunday went great. We raised over $650. It was fab!

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hope you feel better soon.

Big hugs, Alexis
