Two of my sickies this weekend. Yes, even though Lily didn't feel well, she still insisted on wearing a dress and tights(that girl loves tights;)

This weekend has been spent in our pajamas, sipping chicken noodle soup, and smelling like vicks vapor rub. Five out of the six people living in this house have all been sick(Max is the only one who hasn't caught anything yet), and we all came down with it around the same time! It's been an interesting weekend, especially since both my husband and I aren't feeling well. Definitely not a time where I'd be winning any house keeping awards(not that I ever would, but you know what I mean..)

But even though this isn't the way I had been hoping to spend the weekend, there have been so many sweet moments that I don't want to forget. Moments like dozing off with my two year old, and seeing my four year old try to handle being sick with a good attitude. Watching Jack and Anna try to take care of Lily like mommy and daddy do.

There has also been a lot of sitting around. As a mom, I can get so busy(as I'm sure you do too.) There aren't  many times where I can just sit and watch a video or play a game with my kids without feeling rushed to finish the laundry or start dinner. So even though none of us have felt well, I'm so thankful we were able to have this time to rest and recuperate.

So far, I'm the only one who seems to be feeling better. I'm sure I will need lots of grace to get through the next few days or the next week, but for now I'm thankful for a weekend of rest and sweet memories.

These Five of Mine


  1. :( Yuck! Praying for extra grace for you and lots of quick healing for everyone else.

  2. So sorry! Hope you all feel better soon!

  3. Praying that the whole family feels well again soon!! And it is nice to just be able to relax and not worry about the next thing you need to get done! (even if you are sick!)

  4. There have been many times that I have found myself almost enjoying the sickness that is running rampant through our home. Everybody slows down and is content to just BE. Some of our sweetest times have come from weeks where we were all down! So wonderful that you are seeing the blessing in the midst of the yuck!

  5. Oh, man, I feel ya here. We've been sick ALL week this week. Started Monday with my youngest and just worked its way on down the line. Hubby is in bed tonight, with a low grade fever. Worst stomach bug we've had! I got out of the house for the first time all week tonight, and felt like I was on vacation. ;)

  6. I totally understand! Hope you feel better soon!
