Sick Daze

Whew, it feels like it has been a while since I last posted. Jimmy and I both came down with a cold on Wednesday and have been pretty miserable since then.

It’s just your classic head cold: sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, and that foggy feeling. Thankfully we haven’t had fevers (at least I don’t think?!), so I don’t think it’s the flu. We’re just in a sick daze.

We’ve never been sick at the same time, so we’re kind of enjoying being in the trenches together. I told Jimmy the other night that there’s no one else I’d rather be sick with than him 🙂

We even went on a little “date” to Walgreens to get medicine, cough drops, and other necessities (aka chocolate!). It has been a little rough figuring out what medicine is safe to take during pregnancy and I kind of miss being able to take Nyquil at night, haha.

I’m hoping we’re on the upswing now. I felt okay enough to do same baking today. That has to be a good sign, right?! I made chocolate cherry challah from this cookbook and highly recommend it.

The pets have been giving us lots of love and attention. I really feel like Malcolm knows when we don’t feel well because he sleeps on top of us when we nap and is extra snuggly. So sweet. Mavis and Lola stand by the couch, and Mavis puts her head in my hand and stares deeply into my eyes. She’s something else.

Well, I’m going to close out this post and stop talking about being sick! I’m actually looking for a birthday gift for my sister-in-law. She loves cats, dogs, coffee, and Penn State. If anyone has any gift ideas, send them my way!

How do you treat the common cold?


Scenes From The Weekend

We had such a lovely weekend celebrating Resurrection Sunday and spending time with family! Friday night was spent baking and preparing for Saturday’s dinner. I made black bottom banana bars and Jimmy and Mavis snuggled.

On Saturday, we had my father-in-law, his fiancĂ©, my sister, and brother-in-law over for dinner and it was wonderful hanging out with them, playing games, and enjoying good food. Sunday was spent at church, then relaxing in the afternoon before heading back to the evening service to hear more amazing preaching on the joy that is Jesus’ resurrection.

How about some pictures?!
