Sickness Rant and Zoe in Shorts!

This week it is sore throats, coughs, headaches, and other various aches and pains. Seriously, I used to go YEARS without getting sick in California, now I get sick in one way or another every few weeks during the Winter & Spring here. Though there are many pluses to living in South Dakota, getting sick so often is definitely not one of them. I don't even leave the house very often...just go to to church and maybe the grocery store. Zoe has some eye gunk that is finally starting to go away after about 4 or 5 days, Gage has had a cough for 2 weeks, and in addition to that cough now he is dealing with the same thing I am: headaches, a sore throat, feeling as if there is a balloon in your head..

Other than being sick, things are going pretty smoothly around here. Zoe has been practicing her running skills and not exactly succeeding as she continually falls, gets back up, runs, falls, gets back up. Gage is enjoying some free time now that school is finished for the semester, and I've been making a detailed list of what to pack and what bag to pack stuff in for the trip. My house is a mess though, because I haven't been feeling well. My goal is to have it *spotless* by the time I leave for CA in two weeks ;) We'll see if that happens.

Gage mowed the lawn today! Now we have a nice pretty green lawn. Zoe went outside and walked around in the backyard for the first time today, wearing her 2nd pair of shorts and and a tank top and boy did she look CUTE. I should have taken a picture :) We were given a Little Tikes play house for the backyard that was cleaned up today and is currently drying. Hopefully she'll get to check it out later on today.

  1. Getting sick frequently usually happens after a move. Perhaps the strains of germs vary from region to region and it takes a while to build up all the right immunities...I dunno. It does seem, though, as if every time I move to a new location I spend a lot of time sick for the first year or so. Hopefully next winter will be much, much better for you!


Finding Joy in the Winter Months

For our family, this time of year is full of two things: celebrations and a slightly overwhelming sense of cabin fever. Both Gage and I cel...
