Diving For Cover!

image from Pottery Barn (hint hint Jim...I'd love this room ;))

This new year, with all of it's bright shiny possibilities has been pretty much bummerville! I had the beginnings of a cold when I wrote the last post...which developed into the mother load of mucus and coughing (and honestly, after birthing 3 babies...I HATE coughing!!!!!!)

For the last 2 days I've spent all of my time snuggled up in bed (if I had that pottery barn bed, I'm sure that I would have felt better in 1 day....but then again, if I had that bedroom..I'd probably never leave it period!) Yesterday, Jim was off of work. He took care of the kids, made me all of my meals (and brought them to me!)....he even tackled the grocery list with all 3 boys! Can I just say that no matter how miserable I was with this stupid cold, I am completely blessed! Jamie kept making me get well cards---Reasons I Love My Mom about killed me! Corey kept coming upstairs, showing me his Iron man getup and patting my head, telling me "oh mom, you're so sweet..." Riley snuggled in with me for a couple of seconds, but soon lost interest in the movie I was watching (seriously, how many 7 year old boys would watch 2 seconds of Little Women!?!).

So, yes...the last few days have stunk it up. But even in the yuck, I saw so many wonderful jewels! (ones that I never would have saw if I just tried to power through and keep up our hectic schedule!).

Hey Shelly,
Sorry you have not been feeling well...get better soon.

Was it Katherine Hepburn 'Little Women' or Wynona Ryder 'Little Woman' ?

I love the older version the best.

Happy New Year!

Bummer to feel crummy--but how sweet to be doted on.
