i'm not too creative today. i'm not feeling well at all. since late tuesday night i've been achy and coughy. and just plain sick. :) so i just ask for prayers that first off my kids don't get it. i feel absolutely awful and would hate to have to see them feel this way. and of course prayers that i feel better soon.

thankfully shaun was able to stay home with me and the kiddos yesterday. it was so nice to be able to lay around all day long and not have to do much of anything besides nurse evaleigh. which i must say even that was sort of 'painful' yesterday. it took a ton of energy, but i figured pumping would be more work, so i just fed her.

and it was so beatiful out here in wisconsin yesterday, shaun took full advantage of my 'sick day' and installed our new doors. we bought doors a few weeks ago because our other ones were starting to let snow IN not keep it out. and we figured we might as well. God totally worked it out too, because we needed to special order the doors and special order doors *just happened* to be 15% off when we bought them. so the kiddos played outside most of the morning and shaun installed our beautiful new doors. so that's one more thing off of our 'checklist' on the house. our bathroom really needs to be done. but that's a huge expense for that. it needs to be completely redone, and shaun wants to do it all at one time, not pieces here and there. so it's on our list for awhile yet i'm sure. we'll probably need a new barstool (perhaps even one from CSN stores? which i get to do a review for soon!) or three or six in the kitchen too. although they're not really 'barstools' but i don't know what else to call them. the screws fell out of the one, so only an adult can sit on that one. :) but those things can be crazy expensive, especially when you're buying more than one of them. and right now they're still useable. so that's what we do.

shaun took amelya to dance class too. so it was nice that he could see her dance. he generally doesn't get the opportunity to come to dance class. he took the girls to awana and then had to go out in our fields to plow. so my mom was super great and picked the girls up at awana and dropped them off. i'm SO thankful to have great family members willing to help out. i don't know what i'd do without their help sometimes! shaun was out in the fields til 1 this morning. and then up for work at 5. so i'm sure he's tired today. BUT he gets off this weekend!! yay!! i'm super excited for that. it's always nice to have him home for an entire two days straight. :)

anyways. that's what is up with me. i'm hoping to feel better soon. thanks for the prayers! i appreciate them. and know that i pray for my bloggy buddies too!

5 loving words from you.:

Get better soon! I woke up Tuesday morning with my normal pg related (or so I thought) nausea and a dry throat feeling. I thought I was about to get a cold, but I spent Tuesday and yesterday mostly moaning in pain with stomach cramps. YUCK! I hate that stuff!!! I really hope your ick is moving on and getting out of your system! Take care and get some rest :-) And, yes, I know that's way easier said than done!

I feel for you! Being a mom just doesn't jive with being sick. Praying you feel better soon...and that no one else catches what you have.

It was good to see you again. We are enjoying our huge bag of p-nut M&M's. :o)
