It's Friday!

It isn't a regular Friday in our house.  Layla bug is missing her second day of school in a row for the entire year so far because she is feeling yucky.  She came home from school on Wednesday looking pretty run down.  She had fever on and off and so Thursday I took her into see our pediatrician.  Bless her heart, she must have caught strep from her little brother.  Soooo...we are all home hanging out. AND the kids have a school holiday on Monday.  Talk about a long break.  I hope this break is just what both kids need to get better!

I just hate hearing about so many sick people right now.  I feel like every family I know has a sick family member.  I love winter, but I am slowly getting more excited about spring.  Go away sickie germs!

Yesterday was a hiney kicker.  We are so blessed to have a doctor that gets us right in when the kids are sick, but we have a bit of a drive to get there.  Once we got done with the appointment we were starving for lunch and then we needed to get prescriptions filled.  Our pharmacy wasn't in a speedy mood yesterday so by the time we get all of our errands done the three of us were worn out.  I rested for a bit and then I felt like I needed to do a clean up around the house. I cleaned the bathrooms and changed all the sheets....that is the germophobe coming out in me.  Yuck!  I hate strep throat.  I pray I don't get it.

Oh and let me just tell you about my lunch yesterday.  I am such a creature of habit.  I always eat the same things when I go to restaurants.   I don't want to be disappointed so I always stick with what I love.   I usually get cheese enchiladas when I eat Mexican food.  I always eat shrimp at seafood restaurants.  I AM GETTING BETTER though.  I am branching out in my old age...heehee!  Anyway, yesterday the kids were starving for lunch and they wanted Chic-fil-A.  I didn't want the calories I usually consume when I eat the Original chicken sandwich, so I decided to branch out.  I am so glad I did.  I loved the Grilled chicken sandwich.  It is so good and I will definitely get it again.   I put a little bit of mayo and the honey roasted BBQ sauce they gave me.  I enjoyed it so much.  Have you had it?  What do you get when you go to Chic-fil-A?

So yep.  That is all we have going on around here.  I just planned our menu for next week and I need to run to the grocery store.  We are super exciting around here huh?!  And to think I got an email in which the person called me fake. I laughed when I read it and hit delete.  I honestly have no words.   I believe I am anything but fake.  In fact I may be a bit too transparent, and that is why I laughed at the email.   I don't write this blog for other people.  I write it and post about my family as a journal of our lives.  I appreciate those of you that read, but if no one read this little blog I would still post.  Quite honestly it is the best journal I have ever had. I get to look back at my kids and how they have grown.  I can see what the weather was like last year. AND I get to share the things we love to cook and eat.  Sooo....that is all I have to say about that.

Have a great weekend!

Hope the kiddos are feeling better soon & you don't catch it. I'm still feeling yuck too. I hate this! I love, love, love Chick fil A & I always get the regular chicken sandwich. I haven't had one in a long time though because of the calories.

Aww hope those kiddos are better already! I vary between the nuggets and grilled sandwich at CFA-the grilled if feeling healthy b/c it is so good with the CFA sauce I don't feel like I'm missing out. I get the nuggets when I want to splurge b/c at least I'm not eating the bread too that way. If I'm feeling like my willpower is REALLY kicking in I get a side salad with the grilled vs the fries. I'm getting better about wise choices, BUT this week has been bad between the chocolate and baked goods. I'm positive I reversed the 2 lbs I finally lost. I have/had 9lbs to go-ugh! Hope the kiddos are well enough to enough the long weekend!

Hope the kids get to feeling better. I am sure the break is what everyone needs! Ha I know I was so excited about ours.

I agree about the blog being the best journal. It is the longest I have maintained something like this before giving up. Glad you laughed at the email rather than letting it bother you.
