Oh gosh, last week was a mess. We were all miserable and sick. Jesse’s mom had surgery up here, so Jesse spent evenings visiting her. We missed some fun playdates and hikes. I only got 4,000 steps on both Tuesday and Wednesday. It was rough.
But, still there are so many things for which to be grateful! It’s the hard times that I appreciate things and people the most. For sure. Even if this is a little late…
Friday the 20: Mom. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. My mom is the best. She takes good care of my girls, and of me.
Saturday the 21: Theatre.Mom and I went to see Ordinary Days. It was my second time. I loved it. Oregon Contemporary Theatre always does such a fantastic job with their shows.
Sunday the 22: Swimming. We got to go swimming at my dad’s club’s pool. Alma and Harriet loved the water. We were really smart, and last year bought some pool toys when they were on sale. Alma floated around in her zebra ring the whole time, even kicking around.
Monday the 23: Doctors.We had Harriet’s 9 month check-up (a month late) and she’s growing perfectly. Later in the afternoon, we went back to the doctor’s office because Alma’s fever was getting worse and worse.
Tuesday the 24: Jesse. Jesse stayed home from work to take care of all of us. I woke up sick, and knew I wouldn’t be much help. Jesse and Harriet had a good day running errands and taking care of us sickies.
Wednesday the 25: Dad + Deena. My parents took Harriet for the day so Alma and I could just watching movies on the couch. I’m sure it helped both of us recover. As Daniel Tiger reminded us over and over, ‘when you’re sick, rest is best.’ I really appreciate my parents. I think it’s cool that Harriet got to spend time with her grandparents by her self, too!
Thursday the 26: Normal.Things were finally getting back to normal.
