Around Here

Little Bit celebrated her 6th birthday yesterday and then promptly came down with the flu. She has been so miserably sick today and her party this weekend is in real jeopardy. She also had to miss the field trip she was looking so forward to today. Why can't they get sick when you've got nothing goin' on? Goodness knows there are a lot of weekends like that around here.

So, with the birthday and the fever, school has not been going on so much these last few days. Gotta get back on track. Hopefully I can use the extra time this weekend to make some plans for next week.

I love Thanksgiving. It is one of my most favorite holidays. I hate that it gets blown over. I don't WANT to see the Christmas stuff the day after Halloween, OK? We don't have any plans for Thanksgiving yet per se....but we will get it together. What I know is I want to bring back the tradition that my aunt and I used to have where we made a Christmas craft after Thanksgiving dinner. I want to make Christmas shirts with the girls. Anyone seen any cute ideas?

Well, I just wanted to check in here. Not much going on but temperature taking and Tylenol administering and TV watching.

So basically, this was 5 minutes of your life you will never get back. Sorry. :)


  1. I'm so sorry she's sick :-( We'll be praying for her to get better quickly. Poor thing!

  2. Five minutes is nothing, I've taken up way more than that before!

  3. Two of our girls have/had the flu -- lasting about six days each. Hope yours won't be lasting as long!

    On Thanksgiving day we "traditionally" put together a gingerbread house. I take the easy way out on this and purchase the kit from Costco, well in advance. The girls love it!

  4. Aw, poor girl! Get well soon Little Bit! Enjoy your birthday party!!!

    School-schmool. You'll get back on track. :)

    And I love your making a craft after Thanksgiving dinner idea. I might steal it. :)

    Blessings to you, Brenda!!

  5. i'll lose that five minutes happily to spend it with you!

    poor girly. i prayed for her and her party today. will continue. hope all goes beautifully this weekend.

  6. Actually, it was only two minutes. And it gives me a chance to say a prayer for your sickly birthday girl so it wasn't a waste.

  7. Little Bit!! Poor thing. I said a prayer too for her party and her sickness. It's never fun to miss out on a field trip.


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
