So much for my sick day...

I've been fighting what I thought were allergies since we returned from vacation, but Tuesday it became clear it is a cold. A nice present from my trip and the lack of sleep on it.

So today I finally gave in and realized that I stood a better chance of recovering if I stayed home and rested. Initially I thought about keeping M home with me, so we could bond, since she's been seeming a little under the weather too. Within half an hour, I packed her up for daycare. I love the little stinker, but she has too much energy.

After I dropped her off I came home, made a list, and went to the store. I suffer from this other sickness where I can't take a day off without doing something, so I decided to cook some stuff that it hard and too time consuming to do with all of the family around. It didn't quite go as planned when I crashed for three hours on the couch. However, I think I'm on my way to some rocking charra beans. I am not sure quite how they will turn out, but I think after like six hours, they're showing potential. Which is good, because it would have been an unfortunate loss of 12 ounces of bacon.

Still giving away a Wish Come True over at Savvy Source. (email my Savvy email address, or the one on my profile here) Seriously, they're cute and very fun. M loves hers, and Amy at Kiddywampus has generously donated it to be given away.

I hope you feel better soon - sometimes you just have to listen to your body and just crash.

Hi - I hope you are almost done with your crud.

Btw: I sent this email for your give away and it keeps coming back as undeliverable:

My favorite fall activity - expecially in Minnesota - is going to the pumpkin patch. Specifically I love Country Sun Farms. It is a great and affordable place to take the kids. It is free to get in and they have animals the kids can feed (goats, sheep, cows, chickens....) and there is a hayride (that actually costs money) and some great photo opportunities for the parents. It is never really crowded and inside their greenhouses they have tons of pumpkins, squash and everything fall and halloween. To say we go every weekend in October is an understatement.

Hey, I have that same sickness!

The "Can't do nothing" one. Unfortunately, it's not contagious. Neither husband nor daughter seem to suffer.
