We did, however, have a wonderful weekend. I *made it* through my 2 sessions with relative ease, enjoyed my SPA day immensely, gathered some golden nuggets of wisdom from tried & true moms, the boys had a blast with aunt amber at the children's museum, and john even got to climb with brian in his garage. The only problem was, I was not back to 100% health going into this weekend, and no doubt the good *stress* from preparing mentally & emotionally for the ladies day + being exposed to a whole new set of CT germs + staying up late with amber(there was also a cake disaster in the mix) = sick, sick, sick! (it was kind of like college days...after exam week and going home and the immune system just kind of crashes for awhile). But the one (of many) wonderful things about a husband who works at home is that extra measure of flexibility when mom is down! He had the boys up & rolling with scrambled eggs cooked before I even set foot on the floor! And a huge THANK YOU to Richele, who took Drew for the afternoon and brought *good for the soul* chicken broth that is keeping my mug full and my body warm.
And thanks to all of YOU for all your great comments! It warms my heart to know you stopped by to read the scribbles from this little ol' blogger.
