Because, really, you can only watch so much television

I think I'm feeling better today. Last night was a rough night for the baby...I suspect he's cutting another molar (the first and last one he cut a couple weeks ago was really rough on him), so I didn't get much sleep. But I think my symptoms are starting to ease up except for a dry, nagging cough that doesn't want to let go. But I AM feeling better, thank goodness. I was starting to really tire of lying around on the couch watching television and actually wishing I could muster up the energy to get some housework and laundry done. Wow. Did I actually just say that???

It's been wonderful having Jerry home this week and last, and he's been such a help with the boys while I've been under the weather. I'm so thankful for a husband who takes such good care of us and makes an effort to spend time with us on his days/weeks off. He took the boys to an outdoor festival on Sunday so that I could get some much needed rest and brought dinner so I didn't have to cook. Yesterday he took them to one of Cody's appointments and while they were gone I actually mustered up the energy to prepare dinner....tacos! Well, wonders never cease. We enjoyed the beatiful weather and ate it on the patio. It had been a while since we'd been able to do that. Afterward, we went for a long walk and let the boys play at the park until just before dark. Besides Cody wiping out a few times on his bike (this seems to be a daily occurence!), it was a wonderful couple of hours, but I was dog-tired by the time we returned home.

I really love summer, especially when we can all spend time together. I hope you all have a great Fourth of July.

Glad your feeling better. It's so hard when mommy is sick. Sounds like you've got a great man there!

So glad you are feeling better. I too have one of those wonderful husbands that pitches in even when I'm not feeling sickly. Have a Happy 4th!

Nope, doesn't look like we'll make it up this week. A week off fills up quick. Some day...

Glad you are feeling better!! Just in time for the celebration too!!

I know the molars, well all teeth really, were hard on my son. My daughter faired well but my son had agonizing pain when he cut his. I guess he had reason to be fussy - he usually cut 4 at a time. Not the 1 or 2 here and there as my daughter did. Good thing was when he cut one you knew he would have a break for awhile at least. :)

Thankfully my boys never had major moments with teething -- or maybe I mistaken it to being stubborn with sleep training??? HA! Glad you are feeling better!

Glad you are feeling better! Not nice being sick when you need to take care of your family, but it was nice to hear your husband was so helpful!

I'm envious of your weather too. We are in the middle of Winter here and it's so cold and wet YUCK!
