It rained and was Arctic-cold on Easter Sunday. I thought about maybe wearing long underwear under my Easter dress. No egg hunt. We fit in a quick road trip to Richmond on Monday, which I'll tell you about another day. And then the weird tummy ache bug that has afflicted our area of Virginia descended upon our house and chose Michaela Byrd as its victim.
So I spent all day Tuesday and most of Wednesday glued to the leather couch. Offering alternating doses of ibuprofen and acetaminophen, refilling a water bottle, and carefully tuning to the pre-selected channels of Nick Jr. and Disney Jr. We watched a lot of Nick and Disney, people. I feel like I am friends with Peter Rabbit, Doc McStuffins, and that family from Good Luck Charlie. I can sing many theme songs now. Yo Ho, let's go!
We're keeping my sister's dog this week, so I was lucky to have a back-up nurse around.
On the bright side, lots of couch time meant that I was able to log some hours for a work project that's in full swing. I guess I just wanted you all to know why the posting hasn't been exactly my best material here lately. Lots of family stuff and work fun too. I'm hoping that once the taxes are in and the project is ready to go, I can get back to posting some creative and homey stuff. I know there's a great recipe in my drafts folder, waiting to have photos added.
Anyone else have their Spring Break hijacked by unexpected events?
We're off to the American Girl Store in Tyson's Corner (DC) today with a few friends. The link party is on as usual for tomorrow morning! Bring your best post of the week to share!
