With the Bad Comes the Good

So, I'm sick. Bleck. I have a cold. Fortunately it's not too bad. I can handle a little stuffiness, drippy nose, and sinus drainage. Zachariah had it first and shared with me. Isn't he just the sweetest!

But the good stuff is that I get to sleep in a bit tomorrow. My sister-in-law had some cancellations in the morning, so she doesn't have to go in early. That means my nephew won't be here until after 10:00. I'm hoping that buys me an extra hour or two of sleep in the morning. At the very least, Zachariah will crawl into my bed and watch cartoons while I rest for a bit longer. We don't do that often, because I have to be up earlier when I babysit normally. I like those quiet slow mornings.

And today Matt won tickets to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in concert this weekend! It just so happens that my parents are available to keep our kid. We're excited to go to something fun like this together. We're pretty fortunate that we do get out just the two of us once in a while. We have grandparents within driving distance, who are willing to take in their grandson from time to time. And it's so good for us to get this time together...to forget about being parents and just relax a bit.

I hope you'll feel better so you can enjoy the weekend. The kids are brewing colds here and I'm in denial because we have some big plans this month and I don't want all of them to be ruined by playing pass the illness.

Feel better soon!

Hope you feel better soon. My youngest and OH are ill too and it's horrible seeing them so fed-up.
