Love. love. LOVE.

Sunday was Valentines Day. Ok, I know, it seems like an obvious statement. But I have been home for 10 days (10 days!) with sick boys. And so knowing the actual day & date, was a miracle. Time seems to mean a lot less when you never leave your house.
Miles is better. Brian is on the mend. And by some miracle, I seem to have avoided most of it. So in honor of my first week 'unemployed', here are
10 Things that Happened Last Week
1. It was my first week at home. My first week as a SAHM (go ahead, ask me what that stands for... I totally know!). And I truly experienced what it was like to stay at home. And I survived. And I love that. I had a hella-bad case of cabin fever but I survived.
2. For my birthday I got a trip to Pincher Creek to a scrapbook retreat. Here's the catch: It's the last week in February. So as I pack my bags and head out of town I will be chanting "I will not go into labor. I will not go into labor." And hopefully that does the trick. If not, Kim assures me she will haul me down the highway as fast as possible so that I can have my baby in High River, as planned.
3. I got 2 gifts! One from Miles & one from Brian. Hmmmm. Does that mean next year I get three? Miles got me a team Canada hoodie. It's a size XXL and barely zips up. I love it.
4. My sisters came over and made me dinner. Which was awesome, because I sure as heck wasn't about to take my sick baby to the grocery store (see #5). They cooked and cleaned. Yeah I know, lucky me.
5. I tried to take Miles to Costco. He barfed all over me in the parking lot on the way in. I wasn't even upset, it was wishful thinking... I should have known better.
6. Brian fell asleep at 4:30. So I called and canceled the babysitter I had lined up for our "date". Then I took our date money and spent it on a toilet paper holder for the new bathroom. Glamorous.
7. I watched the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics. It was awesome. I was so proud to be Canadian. I was a little disappointed with the way they sang our national anthem. I don't think it was an appropriate time to change the melody. Anyway, the girl who sang it was cute (loved her dress) and did a great job.
8. I cleaned. A lot.
9. I spent a lot of money on getting my boys better. Two bottles of Robitussin (day/night), 4 boxes of Kleenex, VapoRub, VapoRub for babies, Herbal Cough Syrup for Miles, Coryzalia, Infants Tylenol, Riccolas....
10. I made cupcakes and Valentines with Miles for Day Home (above). And he actually helped. It was pretty wonderful. We had a good Valentines Day. I got Miles a cute red sock monkey, he made me a card & I made Brian a crossword puzzle (Free online!). I also got a bottle of champagne for when the baby arrives. Vueve Cliquot. My fav.

Hey Haley! Been thinking about you this past week. Sounds like it wasn't the best first week home, but I know it will get better! Happy Birthday too! Have fun scrapbooking!

WOW that was a busy week. Hope the boys are better. Once winter is over and Babe is here you will not have cabin fever. (I hope) lol
