And, I'm Back

Well folks, this past Spring break did not turn out to be a memorable vacation. Actually, that's not true at all. It was memorable, just not in a pleasant way. The morning we were to leave on our vacation, Peanut woke up with the stomach bug, and Hubby woke up with strep. So, I spent the first couple of days nursing all of my babies back to health. By the end of the week, I had strep throat too. We were able to salvage a couple of days - we spent one afternoon at the Montgomery Zoo. Peanut and Buddy rode the train, saw all the animals, and played on the big, shady playground. The next day was ugly and rainy, so we decided to head to Chattanooga to the Children's Museum and then to the Aquarium. I was so glad we were able to do something fun. The weather here at home was dreadful during the week. The sun literally did not come out for six straight days. It was cold and dreary. So when I tell you it was a forgettable vacation, I'm not kidding.

Our first week back at school has also been adventurous. Yesterday I took Buddy to the ENT to have the tubes in his ears removed. Ear tubes are supposed to fall out on their own after a year or two, but Buddy's got stuck in his ear canal. I thought he would be given some happy gas, but no - the doc just dug right into his ears to get them. Yikes!!! Buddy screamed his little head off. Neither one of us was a happy camper when the process was over. This story does have a happy ending, though - a happy meal and some fun out in the sun later, Buddy was happy as could be.

Luckily, the weather here seems to be improving. We actually have had lots of sunshine this week and very reasonable temperatures. Here's hoping that weather sticks around (though even as I write this it is storming!). I hope this post finds all things right in your world. Ciao!

  1. That's terrible! Glad everyone is feeling better! Poor little guy! I would have been livid if they had done that to Clayton without any happy medicine! Hope all is well!
