A little emotionally and psychologically beaten, battered and bruised but none too worse for the wear. Shortcake brought back a scary illness that mimicked the symptoms of the UTI that landed her in the hospital when she was younger, but after a trip to the ER turned out to be just a crazy little virus. (I was so hoping maybe she was just allergic to South Texas thereby giving me an excuse to avoid it, but no.) Here's hoping it doesn't sweep through the rest of the family.
Sunshine had to have a dozen splinters picked out of her hand after touching a cedar fence and BigBoy lost a corner of his big toenail, but other than all that... we are good and happy to be in our home with our Daddy who missed us tremendously but distracted himself with repainting the bathroom doors and replacing the handles. Yeah! (No more SURPRISE peeks from BigBoy!)
I will be holed up here for a little while trying to whip our routine back into shape, processing all of the thoughts floating around in my head and catching up on all I missed. Boy... you gals have been busy!
It is good to be home.
