This weekend I was pretty pitiful.  I couldn't shake my fevers for long, and I had no energy to go anywhere or do anything.  I had to miss the birthday celebration of a dear friend, and I love birthdays.  All I could do though was sleep in with baby girl (unfortunately G had to work), get schoolwork done most of the day, and take leisurely breaks to play and cuddle with Dylan. 

Perhaps it was the chance to just sit, and lay, and focus on one task at a time without guilt because that's all I had energy for.  Perhaps it was getting to cozy up all weekend in G's comfy flannel shirt, sweatpants, and blankets.  Perhaps it was the several cups of hot tea.  Either way, after my last fever broke Sunday... I started feeling like my old self and ventured out for some cool fresh air. The funny thing is, sick as I was, I got more accomplished and felt more rested by this weekend than most.  It was a strangely great way to start what will prove to be another hurried week.

Sometimes I have to get sick to slow down too. I'm glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet!
