The past two weeks have been a thread of people in my house being sick with the stomach flu. This is why you have not seen a Week 3 Hair Skin and Nails update from me. Nor have you really seen much blogging on my part. Most of it has been taking care of little ones, but just a few days ago it was me getting it.
Yep. I finally caught it. It feels as though it's been ongoing for the past few days. It's not quite hit me hard so it's been lingering symptoms. Mostly nausea. Almost feels like morning sickness again.
No. That is NOT a pregnancy announcement. Lol.
Yuck. I feel gross though.
I have taken to Vlogging the past few days. It's made getting my thoughts out a lot easier. I haven't really had much time to sit down and write so I've recorded myself talking instead. It seems like the easiest option lately. Currently for example I am in my bed wrapped up in blankets trying to let a wave of nausea pass before I get back to cleaning. I figured I could dictate this post through my phone and just get on my computer later to add videos and pictures.
You can't tell me that this girl doesn't know how to multitask!
Funny thing about it is that while I am sick I know that it's great to not have any plans because I can take time to rest. Unfortunately however, all I think about is how much I wish that people could come over so I can play hostess! I just love it when we have friends here! Tomorrow night for example we will have our weekly installment of our "Nerd Night". Jonathan and I, along with 3 other friends faithfully watch The Flash on Tuesday nights together. It is one of the greatest highlights of my week!
I look forward to seeing them each week. Keith and Jennifer are a sweet newly wed couple and Joe is one of the funnest guys that I know.
(Yep. That's HIS book! Check it out here!)
Honestly, I don't know what I would do without these three. I so look forward to seeing them on a weekly basis.
One of the best things about it though is that they are not the only people that we have gotten close to. We have this sweet couple that we have become very attached to since moving here. David and Bekah are such wonderful friends that we hang out with fairly consistently. We became bonded to them quickly over the similarity in the ages of our children and our love for coffee. Bekah has become my dearest friend. I can't tell you how thankful I am for her. She was instrumental in being a great comfort to me after my dad passed away last January.
Anyway, this post turned into a a bit of a novel. I totally didn't intend on that being the case. I do however tend to go on and on about how grateful I am for these people in my mind so I thought it would be appropriate to get it down in words.
I should probably attempt a small nap. Something that will help calm my stomach. My mind keeps racing though, so I'm not sure how much success I'll even have. Lol.
