My evening ritual is going through the photos I take to see what inspires me to write a little something in this space. I'm usually the paparazzi, so I have plenty to choose from. Only lately, not so many pictures.
It's because we've been sort of out of commission. Well, not really sort of, definitely. We've been sick, the sickest my family has ever been. In two and a half weeks, my kids have gone somewhere exactly three days. And one of those three days was to the doctor. You know my kids are sick when Adrian hasn't farmed all day with his play farm and Audra has spent most the day on the couch. Plus neither of them have held a chicken in days. So not our typical.
The flu was suspected, but thankfully that's not the case. Never thought I'd be relieved for "just" sinus infections, but we are. Everyone is still so sick and we are having a hard time shaking it. Nighttime is like having an infant again with everyone up hour after hour. I know I'm a wee bit exhausted when I see that I have so few pictures. Perhaps walking into the doorframe of the bathroom just a few minutes ago and breaking my glasses might be a sign that I really ought to go to bed. I'm heading that way now, but not before I post a little something. I've been trying to get them outside for fresh air as much as possible, but their energy and the Maine winters don't always coincide.
Anyway, I do have these pictures. I snuck up on them while they were playing. Our four legged pal, Kammie, is really the best dog ever. I'm hoping shortly we can get back into our regular groove.
