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.
