Scenes from the Weekend
I was sick. I’ve been sick for the past 2 weeks. I finally went to the doctor.
Double ear infection with sinus inflammation & drainage.
I crawled into bed Friday around lunch time…
And didn’t really leave until Sunday. Seriously.
The boys kept me company.
I watched 12 episodes of Prison Break
I finished one book and started another.
I made a makeshift desk and did school work.
I made a huge pot of veggie noodle soup with chickpeas…
And I ate it 5 times in 3 days.
At least it’s healthy.
Oh, and while I was sick and miserable?
Hubby was in California for work…
Playing golf at Pebble Beach!
He’s kind of a big deal
But boy am I glad he’s home.
PS.. That pic was taken right after he birdied the 5th hole!
