Back in the Saddle again... sort of...

     Yes, there really is something to the '24 hour' flu - almost as if there is a timer attached to the tiny, tear-out-your-guts viruses that makes them spontaneously combust exactly at the 24 hour mark.  wahoo.  Now I am just dealing with the lingering cold, which I will take anyday over what I was dealing with yesterday.  Fun times indeed!
     I do have to say a HUGE thank you to my dear gator-aide and saltine crackers friend and co-YW conspirator... er... I mean leader ;).  Sarah - that was so sweet of you - and you have no idea how good those cute little saltine crackers tasted!  (The kids were so enthralled by them, we have had them at every meal since!).
     And another HUGE thank you to the 'diaper fairy' for tonight.  That is so funny that I just put the last diaper on Ben, thinking, 'what am I going to do in the morning?  I guess he'll just have to suck it up - literally- and wear one of Joshie's ever dwindling pile of size 3's, when I got your call.  Truly inspired you were.  Truly yoda statement was that last sentence.  Too much star wars we have been watching.  Truly digressing I am right now...  
     I have been the huge recipient of the past couple days of the tender mercies of the Lord - and it has been in the form of some very sweet people.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

Oh Jen,
I'm so glad you're feeling better. You are right about being sick with healthy kids, there is nothing worse! It is soooo hard. I remember once in Texas when Darren was deployed (of course) I had strep throat and a tooth needing a root canal and I was laying on the couch with a 105 fever, and the day still is a daze I don't even know how the kids were taken care of! :) I loved the bit where you though drinking chocolate syrup would give Joshua hot cocoa. Very inventive and funny considering you were sick! We're counting down with you till Monday! We pray for you guys daily! Love you!
