Back from the Dead

2014 12 21 Injured

Or at least, that’s how it feels. A killer sinus infection, followed by a lovely allergic reaction, has had me on my butt for the last few days. I’ve also been off work since December 23rd, so I think this is the first time I’ve actually turned on my computer since then.  I feel like our Christmas break flew by so fast.  When it started, I was so excited for two weeks of just hanging out with my family and friends without a ton of obligations, but like usual, we found things to keep us busy and then I got sick.. and here we are.  I’m going to try to keep it short today and just share a few pictures of what we were up to before Christmas.


Braden’s First Day of 1st Grade and Feeling Better

First, I wanted to say thank you so much for all of the well-wishes for Mackenzie.  After a week and a half at home with me, she is finally fever-free and back at school today!  They moved her up to a new class while she was out with several of her older friends, so while she didn’t exactly want me to leave, she was excited to see them!


Easy Peasy Cowgirl Costume

One thing I love about the school that Mackenzie goes to (and Braden for the summer) is all of the fun activities they plan for the kiddos. Each week, they do a different theme and occasionally ask the kids to dress up to match the theme. My favorite one, until recently, was Braden’s mosquito costume.


Clearing Out the Dust Bunnies

I kind of don’t know where to start.  I have a million posts swirling around in my head, I started making a list and it’s quite long and that’s just what I came up with off the top of my head.  I guess that’s what happens when you don’t blog for a month.  Work has been keeping me so busy and by the time I am done (which has been in the wee hours of the morning, for the last three weeks) with work for the day, the last thing I want to do is spend a second longer sitting in front of the computer.  Even if it’s to write about things I enjoy.


Catch Up. Ketchup. Catsup.

Or in other words, I’m a big nerd.  I’m okay with that.  I am no good at coming up with post titles and for some reason when I wrote “Catch Up”, it made me think of ketchup.  Then I remembered when I was younger seeing it spelled “catsup” and thinking it was strange.  So there you go.
