Flu 2011

Oh, for REAL.
My children just got over the worst flu bug ever. 
Henry started Monday night LAST week and wasn't completely normal until Sunday.
Harper started her journey early Saturday morning and seems to be completely normal finally today.
Lots of pukes. Lots of the other stuff. Lots of laying around because of weakness. Lots of crying and whining. (I certainly don't blame them for that!) Lots of boring days waiting for everyone to be better. Lots of happiness that it's OVER!
Thankfully RJ and I managed to stay healthy. I'm not surprised RJ didn't get sick. His immune system is like a rock...I think he's called in sick once since I've known him??
I'm super surprised that I didn't get it.  Maybe it's because my hands are raw from washing them so much? Regardless, I am thankful us adults were healthy to take care of the sickly ones.
So I'm going a little nut-so, and am in major need of some adult interaction.
(Can't wait for a girls night at Smokey Row!! Woo-Hoo!!)

We were still able to make some progress in the house. Floors installed thanks to the help of RJ's dad. Base cupboards purchased but yet to be primed/painted/and put where they need to be. We *sold* our old stove and fridge on Craigslist!! Man, when that site works I love it, but it can also be so annoying.
On Saturday, a friend from church re-did our majorly-in-need-of-repair front steps, which we then stained. I'm in the process of spray painting our front screen door black too. Super lovin' it! 
So this is probably a bit silly that I feel a need to say this, but we refinanced a bit of our house so we could make some improvements. We've lived here for 5 1/2 yrs and got an amazing deal on this place thanks to a short sale so were able to take out some (not all) of our equity. It also lowered our interest rate! We don't suddenly have a lot of money. Trust me.  Ok. There. Just wanted to make that clear. :)

So, hopefully I'll get some photos up soon. 
And hopefully you aren't overly tired of house posts. 
I'll do more fun ones. Promise!

Have a great Thursday!

I'm so glad you're all healthy now! That was a crazy long run of sickness!

I'm relieved to hear where all that money is coming from... I was starting to wonder if you'd been sneaking it out of the offering plate.

And don't worry, I could never tire from house posts! Loving hearing how your kitchen's coming along!

Phew, I'm so glad everyone is healthy again! That sounds awful! Although, I think your children were working your nursing skills to the looked so skinny tonight! :)
LOVE the kitchen updates! I hear we robbed the same bank! Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, and I'm so thankful that Jenn married a guy to help us do these things!
