december 9 *JOY* alert

hack! hack! sniff! cough! achoo, achoo! ohhh!  Coming to you tonight from Sickville...

I missed Credo's gathering today, which was a total bummer. I did, however, enjoy a peaceful, quiet morning all alone.

My biggest JOY today was seeing Maxym--dear friend of our family--today.  He hasn't been here for awhile and we really miss him.  He came over at lunchtime and spent the afternoon and evening with us.  The boys watched football, played football outside in the cold with no gloves (because Mom, you can't throw the ball with gloves on!), made cookies, watched more football, and then we all made pizza together.

My friend, Armelle, brought over a device to breathe hot water and a natural decongestant into my lungs when she found out I was sick.  I hated the treatment (and it didn't even help), but I was glad for a sweet friend who was so thoughtful.

And just as I was getting ready to wind the day down and crawl into bed, Sam told me we are supposed to get a storm tonight and tomorrow!  I didn't know a thing about it, and now I'm like a little girl all excited about the possibility that school might be closed and we'll get stuck inside all day!  How can I sleep now?

hack! hack!

Okay, I'm going...
