Cabin fever sunk in today. I have left the house several times since last Thursday, but only to go to the Doctor or to the hospital.
To be honest, I can't believe another Friday greets us tomorrow - I swear it's only Tuesday?! The weekend was such a blur, and the rest of the week has continued on in the same blurry fashion.
As much as I love home time, I also like to be out & about. And being forced inside this week; constantly measuring fevers and administering medication, rocking & patting baby to sleep, cleaning up messes, and tiringly having to carrying Ryder's 11kg body around constantly, took it's toll on me today & I needed out.
So, we headed to the park...
Some fresh air, blue skies, a packed picnic, and feeling the raw ground under our feet.
And collected pine cones.
Ryder looks completely unimpressed here. He did like our trip to the park. I promise :) Just a bad photo. I will say that I am missing our super-smiley man. Be gone Flu.....just be gone!!! We've had enough already!
I just want to get our life back on track. To actually allow Ella to go to Kindy & ballet. To meet friends for playdates. To have people around & not worry about passing on germs. To walk up the stairs & not puff my heart out. To not be constantly stricken with worry about every cough, every cry, every temperature spike. To go a day without panadol & nurofen & antibiotics digesting through each member of this family. To just BE again.....be us - happy & HEALTHY!!
P.S. Update on the BOOKWORMS CLUB - due to me loosing a week here. I have decided to do only one link up for this month's UNDER THE SEA theme, instead of 2. I will aim to to have it up late next week :) x
