Day 230: Sick Day

Charlie was sick before we left for our trip, but rallied through. When his ear was hurting on the plane, I knew he really was still sick. Luckily it felt better today, but he was still under the weather (isn’t that a funny expression?) and Jeff and I are a bit sick too with itchy ears, throats, and achy heads. So the three of us stayed home today…

And tried to rest.

I got to actually enjoy my little boy, who isn’t that little any more. He invited me to make a leprechaun trap. He’s hoping to catch the sneaky little guy on St. Patrick’s Day and has quite the plan. I loved hearing his ideas and seeing his imagination and creativity.

After the trap was complete and set up in a good spot, it was time for a snuggle. He wanted me to sit with him and watch a movie. The movie he picked was Brave. Have you seen it? It was such a great movie that changes the princess story to something that I love – the main character was a strong, independent, sporty woman with her own destiny, writing her own life script, with her wild and crazy hair and choosing her own path and partner. I could relate! I also loved the mother/daughter role and how they learned together. But most of all I just loved having time with my little buddy!

I Am happy we were home sick, yet hope we will be better tomorrow! Stay healthy! xo

  1. We had our annual Spring tea today (which used to be “yours”) and I made the yummy coffee cake and thought of you…..and we all talked about you and your family and when you’ll come home (as I understand it, for the summer, then 1 more year?) and how we missed you…….and how we live our travel lives vicariously through you!
    Love & miss you, my friend! Marcia

  2. Feel better soon!
    I’m glad you got to see Istanbul. The cities over there are so ancient and have so much history. Thanks for sharing.
