finally feeling healthy-ish

Wow – what a sucky week this has been so far. Three of the four of us came down with this nasty flu whatever and we are finally, FINALLY on the mend. Jaia had bounced back for a day or so and we thought she was over it, but yesterday her fever spiked again. Today…

Feis Weekend

I’ll have the Make it Monday post ready a little later today. We had a busy weekend being sick! Some summer flu bug has hit our house. Jaia had it first Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Rowan is down with it now. My husband and I have dosed ourselves up with enough vitamins that I think…
