What a crazy week this has been. Wednesday afternoon, Brody woke up from his nap with a fever. There weren't any other symptoms, i.e., runny nose, cough or anything like that, but he was very irritable. It is now Sunday, and he doesn't really have the fever anymore, but now he has this rash. After talking to the nurseline, our brother-in-law, and a little self-research on the internet, it seems he has some virus that manifests itself with a fever, breaks suddenly, and then breaks out in a rash. "Hold me Mamma," has been all that he has wanted for the last few days and it has been crazy trying to get things done. It's hard enough when they are well and you are trying to figure out what they are trying to tell you, but it is even harder when they are sick. I just feel so bad for him. We'll probably start the week off with a doctor visit, oh well. Kids aren't supposed to get sick in the summer; right?? No more kissing girls! That picture was actually taken at a birthday party a few weeks ago. Brody is such a ladies man :)
On a separate note, due to all my cuddle time with my snuggles, I had a lot of down time and so after sitting in the rocker with Brody for about a half hour, I decided to call a friend that I hadn't talked to in a very long time. I had actually found her, as well as Katie (the best note-writer in the 9th grade, LOL) through the blogging world, and looked up her phone number and gave her a call. It was so good to visit with her and to find out about the "going ons" in her life. We had such a good visit and I just think the world of her. It made me realize how I need to be better at keeping in touch with all my friends. It's amazing how easy it is to fall out of touch with people when there was a time we were inseparable and did everything together. After our visit, she blogged about the experience and challenged everyone to get in touch with an old friend. As a result, I am extending that same challenge to all of you. You never know how you may brighten someone's day. So, in honor of my friend, and for a little blast from my past, here are some fun pictures. LOL Mandee!! I miss you!
So.....to all of my friends out there, new and old, I'm grateful to you and your support, your friendship and your love. THANKS.
