This plague at my house is slowly coming to an end. Thank God!
I've had strep throat and Monkeyface has bronchitis so there's been a lot of sleeping on my part and very little sleeping on his. Last night was a dream b/c we both simultaneously slept through the night together.
My dad has been keeping him at home since Tuesday. I'm so thankful that he is retired b/c I have certainly needed him this week. He's happy too though with good food in his belly.

I have a whole chicken in the crock pot today stuffed full of garlic, onions, and a random orange covered with herbs de provence and the juice of one lemon. I've been reading cookbooks lately and really wanted some rosemary lemon chicken but that's nearly impossible without rosemary. Luckily I'm good at improvisation.

I don't post here nearly as often as I would like but I've been without a computer at home for about 2 weeks now. Hubby took care of that last night & with the help of one SuperAsian I am now back in business. Granted...I am posting this from work :)

I have a new nephew that I will hopefully be meeting soon. I get to hold baby fingers and toes again. I miss that. Not that 2.5 isn't wonderful in it's own right but boy oh boy do I miss rocking and cuddling for hours on end. I don't even complain about getting up with Monkeyface when he needs me b/c it means that I get to hang out and rock in the glider with him. I'm such a sap.

I've been thinking of making a new mixed CD. I haven't made one in over a year now and do believe that it is time. However, all I've been listening to is what I call porch music. Low key, soft spoken, background to my thoughts kind of music. I need a front porch. I really do.



Glad you guys are starting to feel better! We are just pretending that we don't have the plague right now, because we are about to fly on Sunday. THAT should be fun!
