Taking the week off

That is basically what I have been doing. I will pay for it later, I know. Dylan hasn't had any school and doesn't go back until Wednesday. We haven't left the house but one day this week to go and get groceries. Aside from the needed laundry and dishes, I haven't done much else around the house. And I don't particularly care right now. Like I said, I know I will pay for it later.
Today the kids woke up with a cold. Ethan seems worse off that Dylan though. Dylan has a slight cough from post nasal drip. Not much else with him. Ethan has a horribly runny nose and is sneezing like crazy. He also sounds very congested. When he first woke up it didn't seem to bother him much, but as the day goes on, he is a bit more clingy and just wants to be cuddled. The runny nose is the worst of it. Hopefully he takes a great nap to help him get through the evening.
The Christmas tree has been taken down and is put away. The tent/tunnel combo that we got Ethan for Christmas now takes its place in the corner. I'm glad we have a large living room.
...yeah, not the best picture but you get the idea. He likes it. I just have to watch Dylan with it. He gets a bit rough in and around it. I would hate for him to be the one to break Ethan's gift. But they do enjoy it.
If tonight's dinner turns out well, I will share the recipe with you. A month or two ago, I got a couple of racks of baby back ribs on sale. So they are in the crock pot right now. I'm hoping they turn out well. Dinner will be the ribs, cornbread, baked beans and a veggie to be determined later.
I mentioned in other posts about how December has flown by. Well for me, this week has drug on. Mainly because we haven't gone anywhere this week and haven't had to, I have no idea what day it is, haha, and it seems to be going by quite slowly. Oh well. All of that will change once Dylan starts back into school.


  1. I'm a little jealous! I wanted to have a lazy week this week, especially since I start back to work tomorrow, but that didn't happen :( I managed to catch up on most of my laundry though! :) I'm sorry that both your kiddos are sick! Sick kids are NOT fun! I will definitely say a little prayer for you! I've made ribs in the crock pot before and they turned out amazing, so hopefully your's will too! I'm looking forward to hearing about your recipe! Happy Thursday! ;)

  2. Thanks Ashley. The ribs smell good. I just hope they are tender. That seems to be my issue with them, I have a hard time getting them tender enough to eat, lol.
