Here’s hoping it passes soon and doesn’t hit me in the meantime. I have a full week ahead of me with lots to share. Starting with the finished hallway tomorrow. Oh yeah…I finished it.
Were you worried something happened to me? Something did. A little thing called vay-cay and I didn’t want to announce it to all of blog land because that’s dangerous. I repeat–announcing that you will be gone from your house for a set amount of time on the internet is dangerous. But we have returned now–pictureless and ashamed about that–hopefully some of my in-laws can hook me up with their pictures…I know you’re reading this. We escaped to Bear Lake last Wednesday for a family reunion. Chris and I, along with Brandon and Stephanie were in charge of the whole thing. It turned out really fun and a lot less stressful than I had imagined it would be for months and months. Although vacations are totally different now that we have a 17 month old. More fun than a vacation with a 5 month old, like last year, but still limiting–especially since our princess has a 6pm bedtime.
Between chasing her around the two cabins and helping her adjust to sleeping in a playpen, we still managed to enjoy some night games and time at the beach and good meals. Greta and I took our first boat ride (yes, it was my first as well), but we passed on the tubing since Greta wailed when she was merely standing in the lake. Other highlights included: Chris and I escaping one night after Greta went to bed thanks to some house sitters to try out Bear Lake’s famous shakes. Chris making a bomb meal. Laughing until tears were rolling out of my eyes at conversations between Chris and his siblings. They are all so funny! I hope to gather up pictures of these happenings and give you all a full report on our getaway.
But as it goes, all good things come to an end. Vacation ended and sickness set in–immediately…as in, on the way home. First Chris and then Greta shortly after. My two, precious sickys have come down with flu-like symptoms and have been lounging (among other not-so-pleasant things) all day. I have been doing my best to nurse them back to health with lots of soup, juice and popsicles.
