It’s been so bitter cold the past few weeks, we are all so ready for spring!! It’s funny the weather keeps saying warmer weather is coming in the next few days and it keeps getting bumped further away. (sigh) We haven’t been up to to much here the past while. On Valentines Day morning the tummy bug hit our home and we are just now starting to get over it.
Valentines Day hubby had planned to go and pick up a load of firewood so was up early to leave for that. It was starting to snow, but we weren’t suppose to have any bad weather. With in minutes of him and dd9 leaving we could hardly see out the window! I was worried but also busy with dd12 feeling sick. What he didn’t tell me until he got home was that he was picking up a “new” couch and chair set for us. :) We had been looking for a new set for a while and had found one that I liked. I had no idea that he had made arrangements to pick it up. What a lovely surprise!
Unfortunately by the time they got home, we were up to 2 sick kids. It’s taken about 2 weeks to work through all of us, no fun!! Poor hubby even was hit and he hardly ever gets sick. He spent a day in bed and missed a day of work as well. The day he was the sickest we also had 2 water pipes in the basement freeze and crack. First the hot water going to the washer, so I had to shut that off. Then the cold water so hubby had to shut off the water to the house. Then thankfully was able to put on a temporary fix so we could get the water running again. Then the next day he was feeling well enough to pick up the parts and fix it right. Sickies, sickies go away and don’t come back! lol This week we will be spending a lot of time getting caught up.
The good news is a lot of the library books I had requested on inter library loan came in last week. Now that we are feeling better we can dive back into our middle ages study!
