a whole lot of shaking going on

30 Oct

well not exactly… but there has been a lot of madness. busy-ness. craziness. etc. here in mn. most recently the children have ALL been sick. all three of them. today is our first puke free day (knock on wood) in well 5 days. and of course in the grand scheme of things some stomach viruses and colds are nothing it is still exhausting to care for three sick and needy kids simultaneously. too much. but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. and it is in New Orleans. where i am supposed to rendevous with some friends this weekend (hoping beyond hope i have warded off this illness with zicam, vitamin c, multivitamins, and wishing upon a star or two)…

other than that we traveled to the east coast for about a week for my little (6’4″) brother’s wedding in CT. saw lots of family who had never met the twins. met up with a few friends. and then headed to PA to meet our newest niece Katherine. after a few days there we were back home. it was a whirlwind of a trip. a bit of a “stresscation” as M aptly named it but fun all the same.

I am feeling a bit behind on everything from work. to child rearing. to breathing. and thinking. some sleep is definitely in order (but not sleep like last night on the floor of the twins room). we are in the process of transitioning the twins to toddler beds (scary). and that is a post in and of itself…

hope everyone in blogland is safe after the crazy storm. thinking of you all.

    Our last trip in July was a “stresscation”. That’s an excellent word that I’ll be using every time we do a strictly family visit. Glad you’re home and catching up slowly but surely.
