The whole household has been dealing with runny noses and headaches and coughing fits over the past week or so, and we are finally seeing drops in fevers and increases in the ability to breathe. It seems as if every year at this time we end up sick, regardless of the fact that we all have our flu shots. I can't escape it -- kids come to school sick, and it's only a matter of time before my daughter gets sick and/or I get sick...and then my poor husband ends up sick. He's terrible at it -- such a grump. I like to "manage" sicknesses, insisting upon hydration, medication, frequent temperature checks, lots of sleep, and companionable dogs and cats. Mostly I annoy my family into feeling better.
Anyway, things are finally looking up around here, thank goodness.
Before the germ siege, I worked on a few layouts for October Afternoon, one of which was up on the OA blog today. It's a nice reminder that the sickness could have been worse -- it could have been the stomach flu! Yuck. I love food too much, as you can tell by looking at this layout:
About a week ago, another one of my layouts was featured on the OA blog. This one warms my heart.
Thanks for visiting today! Stay healthy!
