Popping in

I'm not really back, I just had to say that I am excited because I FINALLY changed my profile pic, which I have been wanting to do for over a year. Crazy how sometimes it's the simplest tasks that take the longest, isn't it?! Monica took the photo on our last night of being together, and I really like it. That expression on Nathan's face is so him.

It's a good thing I planned to take a break last week, because I would have had to anyway. Nathan and I both battled a nasty stomach flu and were pretty much down for the count. I think this is the first time we've been sick simultaneously, and it was quite challenging for us.

I will have so much to share when I return at the end of the week--or Monday, we'll see. I didn't get as many "before" pix around our house as I should have, just because I was feeling so lousy, but it will sure be fun to show you the "after" shots. My father-in-law is working wonders in our 99-year-old house!

Appreciated all your comments on my last post--thanks. This is the first time other than being out of town that I've taken an extended blogging break, but it's actually given me more things to write about. I have quite the list going in my head. =)

See you soon, friends.

What a sweet picture of you both! Sorry you were sick - it's certainly no fun when both mama and baby are feeling icky. Hope you are feeling better!

Yeah! The photo looks great!

I've heard several others suggest that when you need more ideas of what to blog about just take a few days off and the ideas start coming! :)

Hope you're feeling better!

Missed hearing from you but glad you're enjoying the time off. We had the stomach flu here a couple weeks ago, no fun. Hope you're feeling better. Love the new pic!

I love your new picture! Maybe I can get a cute one of the four of us, once dragonfly arrives, because I don't like the one I have at all! Hope you're having a nice break- I'm taking one too, just stopping by to see the blogs.

I love your profile pic also!! I've never been sick at the same time as my little ones...unless you count being pregnant...hee,hee. I hope you are all feeling better soon! Your package goes out today. Nothing like waiting till the last minute...

Great picture!

I am glad that you are both feeling better. Stomach stuff is no fun, especially when a toddler is involved!

Looking forward to seeing your house pictures.

I didn't like to complain but have to admit I've been hoping for a new photo. Little ones change so much, so quickly!

Sorry you haven't been well and am glad you're on the mend.
