We found out today that in July, we're going to get another niece. We've known that we're going to be aunt and uncle for the third time for awhile now....we just didn't know if we were going to have a niece or a nephew. My brother and sister-in-law, Joel and Amber, are expecting their third girl -- somewhere around July 15. I guess Marc and I will only have nieces. Marc's an only child (so no nieces or nephews there), and I only have this one brother. And they tell me they're DONE after this girl.
We're slowly on the mend in this household. Marc is doing better -- has been back to work for two days now. He just still has a nasty cough -- particularly at night.
Luke has been fever-free for over 24 hours now. He still coughs, but I think it's slowly getting better. We're still having him "take it easy" (as much as we can with a 19-month old) because we don't want a relapse.
I have a nasty head cold, and I'm hoping it stays out of my chest. I'm tired of Kleenex and congestion. But, I do know that "this too shall pass." But, I will say that I've been fairly unmotivated to do much around the house this weekend. Needless to say, I need to get a few things done this weekend.
We've been watching this each night....
(Yes, these photos are of our TV in our family room -- I took these photos from the comfort of one of our recliners).
We haven't just been watching Speed Skating (though it is a favorite for both of us), but we've been watching HUGE amounts of Olympics. What can I say? We're a bit addicted.
Sorry those photos weren't of the US, but I just took what was one. We're certainly cheering for USA as #1, but we do watch Canada. After all, we have very close Canadian friends :)
(And we're VERY sorry that Apolo Ohno was DQ'd from the 500 m race tonight).
We've had some really cool icicles hanging off of our roof this week. I took these photos. Keep in mind that I'm NOT a professional photographer, and I don't own a fantastic camera. But, I FULLY appreciate the one I have...It does what I need it to do.
The icicles, I think, are just a neat phenomenon.
And, speaking of not getting things done this week -- I NEVER did post our week's menu plan. But, to keep myself accountable, here was what we did eat and what we will eat the remaining part of the week....Just in case you wanted to know.
