It's Saturday. I should be 'headed up' by now. I have to teach a class of first graders at 'church school' tomorrow. But I'm all wound up and all exhausted at the same time. So I thought I'd work backward since there seems to be so much catch up for me and this little place I put my life.
Today I took Abigail to the doctor because I was sure she had pink eye. She left with yes pink eye but also a positive test to Strep!!! "Ohhhhh... that explains everything," I thought. Like why she cried every half hour today.
I wonder how I 'missed this one.' I know her sooo well and she's sick a lot so I always know the onset of every ear infection, cold, fever, everything.. missed this one. After the meds tonight and as she was falling asleep she was moaning. Poor thing! It's gonna be a loooong night... maybe.
Earlier this week her little group class was asked to play at a Chocolate Festival. Scott and laughed as we stood by the onions and trail mix and watched her play. She was darling. But it sure was a fiasco getting there on a Thursday night. Anna played too but she was standing behind Abigail and we couldn't get her, darn! (especially since she played more interesting music than her little sister) Here's a little clip...
And since we're working backward, earlier this week we had a snow day. It was lovely. Tea, sledding, tea, and everything good that comes with an unexpected change in the schedule.
Just steps out of our back door
I really wish I saw these pictures before today because I can see her pink eye right there!
Oh I love Abigail's smile as Anna had a crash fun landing.
And her walk back up the hill
Lots of tears this week leading up to Strep and pink eye :(
I love snow days. They're glorious.
And before that Scott had an overnight trip to NYC. It snowed that afternoon so even though it wasn't that much the girls wanted to shovel for daddy; to surprise him when he came home.
And our traditon is that if daddy is away overnight it's a sleepover with me!
Here's to meds working, me not having to work backward here in this space. And to a happy, healthy Sunday.
