Colds, naps and frozen pizzas.

I woke up this morning. Freezing. It was a mere 20 or so degrees. The fire had been stoked by Russell but I was still cold nonetheless. I did some grocery shopping not thinking the coldness of the morning would affect me later on in the day. I stocked up on fresh fruits (lots on sale) and cereal and cheese. I came home and started sneezing. I even took airborne this morning. Love that stuff. Then my nose started running. I had to catch it. Several times. I took some benedryll for allergies and colds and picked Nephi up from the bus. Luck would have it he didn't want to eat his lunch this day. So....
He took a 3 1/2 hour nap. Maybe he wasn't feeling very well either. I expected him to wake up after an hour or so. But luck was on my side. I fell asleep too. When I woke up I felt worse. Now my throat was hurting. Where is the honey? Fell back asleep and woke up again just as the boys came home from school. By this time it's almost 4 p.m. Nephi still hadn't woken up yet. Russell came home a few minutes after the boys and sent me back to bed. After I told him we were having frozen pizza for dinner. My rationalization was they were a good pizza brand and on sale for $2.50 a box. I certainly can't buy cheese that cheap.
Now that it is evening and having taken more airborne - I am starting to feel better. I will take another benedryll before I go to bed and tomorrow should be just grand. I hope you are having good health at the moment. If you would like - I could sneeze or cough on you and we could share the germs. :)

I feel your pain. It's cold here too and we (the kids and I) have the yucky phlegm cough but nothing comes up.
Burns when you cough like that.

Hope you feel better soon!

Keep the germs to yourself! I normally have eight in one reading group and seven in the other. Each had four kids. Sickness is going around. Get better!

That is just GROSS, do not give me your germs, lol. But I was feeling pretty bad myself so maybe we already shared?

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
