I'm Home - and Alive!

I know I haven't been around. But yes, I'm still alive. I was at my parents' house all week. (Well, I came home Thursday.) I had fully intended to blog while I was there, but it just didn't happen.

On Thursday morning, CJ woke up not feeling good. His stomach was bothering him. I figured what he ate had just not agreed with him. My Mom took us to Olive Garden for lunch before we headed home. CJ didn't want anything. My son - turning down food - not a good sign.

He slept most of the home. He never ate anything on Thursday - not one bite! Before I went to bed, I checked on him one more time and he had a little bit of a fever, so I gave him some Tylenol. Thankfully, when he woke up Friday morning, there was no fever.

But he still wasn't feeling good. He slept all day yesterday. He ate a piece of toast, a couple crackers, some applesauce and a bite or two of chicken noodle soup. Poor guy - he was miserable.

This morning he woke up and came and sat in the living room for a few minutes. I knew that was a good sign. He said he was feeling a little better. He told me he was hungry - Yay!! He ate 2 pieces of toast and so far, they are still in him. I hope they stay put! I think this thing has taken a turn for the better.

Now, you want to know what is so NOT FAIR? Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE snow. And I envy everyone who lives in places where there is actual snow you can go out and play in. We haven't had "good" snow like that since 1993 - that year was awesome.

Guess what it did on Wednesday? It snowed. And I WASN'T HOME! I was 2 hours south, and there was only a little bit of sleet there. My husband decided it would be fun to torture me and sent me pictures of our snow-covered back yard. What a turkey! Of course there were absolutely no traces of it when I got home. Oh well.

But right now there is some white stuff falling from the sky again. It is beautiful. Will it stick? I hope so. But I'm not going to hold my breath.

I opened the door to show Ruthi. Then I said, "Let's close the door - it's cold out there."

She said, "Yeah, when it gets warmer, we can play in the snow."

Obviously, she's a bit young to understand that's not how it works. But I told her that if we get enough, we will bundle up good, and go play in it. Hopefully we will get to play. And hopefully, CJ will feel good enough to enjoy it too!

So yes, I'm alive and well, and now that I'm back home, maybe I'll get back to blogging without going a whole week again. But don't hold me to it! I've got lots of catching up to do, and a long to-do list. But I'll try not to neglect all 6 of my readers! I'll be backe with some pictures soon.


  1. sigh, i understand the whole reader thing! maybe it is better to be loved by few, than adored by many!

    look forward to seeing you next week around blog world!

  2. YAHHOOOO.....You are back. I was getting ready to send out a search party. Was thinking maybe you were put in time out and weren't allowed your computer! Sorry about the snow, but maybe you will get some this weekend!

  3. Glad you're home safely!!

  4. Glad to hear CJ's feeling better! Poor fellow...going to Olive Garden and not eating...yep, he must have been feeling reeeeeeally bad!

    Hope you got some snow to play in!
