Things have been kind of crazy around here. The plague struck our house, attacking first Neil, then myself and finally our dear little Bean. For Neil and I, it was the regular old flu, but Sophie got that AND a stomach bug. Which was awful on sooo many levels. I won't go into details because no one needs their meals ruined, the way ours was, okay that's a tiny detail right there. Grossed out yet? Anyway, we seem to all be back in good health, although there are some lingering stuffy noses and such.
I went to the gym this morning for the first time in 10 days. That's the longest stretch I've missed in over a year. It felt weird and great to get back there. The kids in the daycare shouted Sophie's name when we walked in. I know she was happy to get out of the house. We've all had cabin fever. The worst of Neil and I's illness came during some really, really beautiful weather here, so our poor darling was cooped up inside with us while the rest of the world was out enjoying.
Finally, I had another bloggy get together this past Saturday, Momzshare. It was put on by Jennifer of Hip as I Wanna Be and Lara of Chicken Nuggets of Wisdom. They did a fabulous job. Held at Jennifer's house, which was exactly the right size for the number of people attending, it was intimate and comfortable. There was oodles of great food and wine and the company simply couldn't be beat. This will be a quadrannual (4x a year) event and I can't wait until the next one!
In the meantime, I have a pile of stuff to do. We are still catching up from us all being sick which is why I've been so scarce in bloggyland. I'll be back to normal operations soon. I hope. In the meantime, here's a cute picture to tide you over. It seems my daughter's laundry basket sleeping days are not behind us.
