More than tired. Exhausted.

I'm afraid Joel probably has pneumonia. He has promised that he'll finally see a doctor today. In the meanwhile, I'm thankful I have a nebulizer in the house and have been making him do some breathing treatments. (ETA: He doesn't have pneumonia, thank goodness. Just very severe bronchitis.) The girls have been sick and home from school, too. I have still had to teach a million lessons (the University gave me yet another student the other day--a month into the semester!) and try to keep some semblance of order, and I fear I'm starting to get the darn sickness myself. Either that, or PMS. Or just plain exhaustion.

Today is supposedly my "Frugal Friday" post, but I think I'm going to have to skip this week.

Instead, I'll link you up with my friend Carolyn and her cool new blog about building tablescapes. She is an expert at it. I never even knew what a tablescape was until I met her! I've seen a few birthday tables she's done for her kids and a couple other holiday tables in real life and they are all amazing! And, she does it all so cheaply (hey! Maybe this can be Frugal Friday after all!). Anyway, she just started this blog, and she would like to attract a following, so she is giving away a $30.00 Target gift card. The best part about it is that if you win, I win, too! So make sure to go over there and don't forget to tell her that I referred you. And then refer all your friends. And then go look at her gorgeous tablescapes.

Makes me want to go out and figure out something really cool for Valentine's Day. Instead of the heart paper plates and cups I just bought at the dollar store for our V-Day breakfast.

Go check it out now!

  2. I hope you stay healthy! Well, not forever, that is a pretty unrealistic expectation. I hope you don't come down with it when your hubby is sick and that when you DO come down with something, he'll be well enough to take care of you.

    I saw your Facebook post and I can't believe that you guys are mostly sick. I hope you can skip it and get much done before exhaustion gets you.

    Give your girls big hugs for me (when they are better) Lisa and Jasmine say hello and feel better too...
