I’m finally on the tail end of this horrid virus, but still feel bleh. Just really tired, but that’s much better than all the painful blisters, so I’ll take it. Mason has been getting little red bumps on his face and head for the past couple of days. Today he has LOTS. He’s had a low fever too, but it hasn’t gone over 99.7 (thank goodness!). It’s been awful to have HFMD again… But I’m glad that my case was the worst and the kids’ have been fairly mild. I’d much rather be the one who is sick. I hate having to watch my children suffer and not be able to make them better.
Yesterday Ryan was feeling really tired, so I took his temperature. I compulsively do that whenever someone says “I don’t feel good.”). It was 96.9. Naturally, I freaked out and made him get in bed. I put a hat on him, covered him with blankets, and summoned the cuddle crew:
The girls warmed him up, he had a nap, and woke up feeling fine. No one will be coming down with hypothermia for no good reason on my watch! In other news, our hard floors and vaulted ceiling gives our living space quite the echo. Ryan discovered a 65% off sale on icanvas.com a couple weeks ago. So we ordered some canvas art prints to help with the noise.
Buying art prints was one of those things that made us feel like real grown ups. When Ryan has more time, we are gonna tweak the alignment of the paintings a bit. For now we just wanted to get them off the ground so some certain little boys wouldn’t mess with them.
I really want to get a canvas print of a painting of the Seattle Temple. So far I haven’t been able to find one I like. If you know of one, please send me a link! Maybe someday I’ll paint one myself, but I don’t have the time or energy right now. Actually as I typed that out, the wheels in my head started turning… Maybe I will paint one myself.
