Random Thoughts, Sick Kids, Mended Little Hearts

Ugh! I can’t believe there is still sickness going around our house! I think we are starting to get better, Owain is definitely much better than he was last night. His fever is way down and he is done throwing himself on the ground crying from discomfort. Tonight Honey Nut was the one who had a melt down. She screamed and cried for almost an hour. I can’t figure out she was in pain because of teething or if she had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics. I think her pediatrician told us once that kids can become allergic after a few times taking it. I guess I will know tomorrow morning when I give her the next dose.

We are so excited that we finally got snow today…and lots of it! Close everything down kind of storm. It started out kind of strange though, this morning when the storm started we had rain, freezing rain, thunder & lighting and snow all at once. It was one of the craziest weather events I have ever seen. Even the kids were running around the house talking about how strange it was…even they knew it was odd. All of this of course made homeschool difficult and there was no focus at all. Little Nut Nut and Owain need some prescriptions filled today, so Wing Nut and I went for a walk to get it. The roads were nasty this afternoon and I am pretty sure the snow plow still hasn’t been by our house, or even close to our house. It was a nice walk and the snow was coming down in big huge flakes…we figured out that there were about 100 million trillion flakes coming down. At least that is what Wing Nut thought and I think that he was pretty close. There was so much snow coming down that my glasses were soaked and fogged within just a few minutes. It was a fun walk, I think we are going to have to find somewhere to walk to tomorrow.

One of my favorite things about a deep fresh coat of snow…I love the way the air smells! More than that, I love the way it doesn’t smell. Everything is covered and frozen and the air has such a crisp clean smell.

We have been working on our Mended Little Hearts CHD Awareness Event and Fundraiser. The hardest part is that the other co-coordinator lives about 1 1/2 hours from me and has a 1 month old baby…and neither one of us live in Charlottesville. Everything is coming together and we are starting to get some donations in. This is our first big fundraiser and our biggest event…I am going back and forth between getting super excited about everything to having panic attacks that everything is going to go wrong. I am not sure what can go wrong, but I am still worried that something will.  We have less than 2 weeks to get everything pulled together…which I think we can do!

And I am still reading Eat Pray Love and I am still thinking that this could be the worst book I ever read. I am in India now and still not feeling it.
