My nose will not quit running.
I have a bit of fluid in my right ear and every time I swallow, my ear makes a crackling sound that is super annoying.
I keep chugging Emergenc-C and telling myself I will NOT be sick.
Because next week is Spring Break and I have things to do, places to go, and people to see.
I think daylight savings time is getting the best of me. I've been so tired lately.
A couple of nights ago I took a "nap" after dinner. Weird.
My kids have adjusted pretty well to the time change. They always seem to adjust more quickly than I do though.
John and I have recently discovered the beauty of weekend afternoon coffee dates.
We have several coffee shops that are close to our house, so we've been trying to get away alone for an hour or so each weekend. It's my favorite hour of the entire week!
We went last Sunday afternoon (it was snowing!) and in addition to our lattes, we bought a bag of Tanzanian peaberry to brew at home. Let me just tell you, THAT is the only thing getting me out of bed with a good attitude this first week of daylight savings time. It is yummy!
The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous the last couple of days.
Looks like today will be gorgeous as well before temps drop 40 degrees and some snow piles up. It's springtime in the Rockies. And that means widely varied weather.
I have lots of errands to run today.
Because two of my peeps have a birthday on Monday. John will be 43, and Abbey will be 8.
How can my baby be eight?
She asked to have an art/craft/sleepover party. I love the art/craft part but the sleepover part isn't my favorite. But she gave me the sad, puppy eyes which always makes me cave. She pretty much planned her entire party for me. It's going to be CUTE. I'll share more later.
We didn't exactly plan for them to have the same birthday. It just sorta worked out that way.
Abbey was 4 days past her due date and my doctor, who had a solo practice, was leaving for a Spring Break vacation. I wasn't crazy about the idea of an on call doc I didn't know delivering her, so I let him induce my labor the day before he left town, which also happened to be John's 35th birthday.
I think it's kind of sweet that they share a birthday.
I think it's really sweet that John just smiles when I serve him a piece of cake decorated with Barbie or butterflies.
He's a good sport. And an amazing dad.
We're not going anywhere exotic.
We have some birthdays to celebrate. And some new and old friends to visit with. And my girls are so very excited about the grand opening of the American Girl store in Denver, so we may go check it out!
Last night, Abbey and Sarah finished dinner then headed out to the trampoline to enjoy the last little bit of our gorgeous day. As Abbey was walking out the door she turned to look at us and said: "Peace out, peeps." Cracked us up.
Peace out, peeps. Have a great day!
