Catching Up...

Well, I didn't intend to take a break from blogging but for the past few days I have been as sick as I have ever been in my life.  Kevin too.  Wednesday night we just picked up dinner from a local restaurant.  We'd eaten there plenty of times before and their meals are big, so we just split a meal of calabash chicken fingers with honey mustard, french fries, onion rings, and cold slaw.  We actually watched a re-run of "The Big Bang Theory" while we ate dinner.  It was the one where Leonard gets to go to Switzerland and bring somebody with him.  He wants to bring his girlfriend, Penny, but his roommate and best friend, Sheldon, REALLY wants to go.  Anyway, this is what the whole show was about and then at the very end, Penny and Sheldon both get sick and can't go.  After we watched it I made the comment to Kevin that I couldn't even remember the last time I was THAT sick.  You know, stomach sick.  I'll never say that again.

About 4am I woke up sick.  I laid in bed for about an hour trying to convince myself that it was all in my head, because of the TV show we'd watched the night before.  But then I realized, it was NOT in my head.  Apparently when I got out of bed I woke Kevin up and he realized he was feeling a bit queasy too.  Around 7am he got up to feed Kate and then took her over to her Nana's house.  She ended up spending the night because we weren't sure if we had a virus or food poisoning, but we didn't want to take any chances with her getting sick.  We ended up coming to the conclusion that it was food poisoning for 2 reasons.  First, we got sick at the EXACT same time after sharing a meal- I mean within an hour of each other.  And secondly, except for church on Wednesday evening, we hadn't been around anybody.  Regardless of WHAT it was, that's the sickest I've been in as long as I can remember.  I didn't go to work on Thursday and I was hoping to be able to go back today (Friday).  That didn't work out.  This morning, I still had a fever and felt so weak.  Somehow Kevin recovered more quickly than I did and he felt much better already.  I feel a lot better tonight, but I'm still not quite 100%.  In the past 3 days all I've eaten are a few saltine crackers, a tiny bit of chicken noodle soup, and I just ate a banana.  I'm hoping I'll be fully recovered by tomorrow so I can get to work. Now is NOT the time of year to be getting sick!

Kevin DID go by my work Friday morning to pick up my laptop, and brought home my Valentine's day flowers.  I'd left them at work because I thought I'd enjoy them more there.  So he brought them home, and now they're my "Get Well" flowers. Bet he didn't know they'd be doing double duty when he bought them!

We finally got our little girl back at home with us tonight.  I'm so glad we have family close that she could stay with, but I did miss her.  I hadn't REALLY seen Kate since Wednesday evening, so it felt like it had been a long time!  And, while she was gone she got her very first tooth!  I knew one was about to pop through because you could feel it, and it decided to come on through while she was staying with her Nana and Papa.  That cute little toothless open-mouth smile is going to be changing! :)

In the past week, she also got a few surprises in the mail from some sweet friends!  One friend sent this adorable little doll, just like the ones her two little girls have.

And another sent this huge stack of children's books.  Love, love, LOVE them!

THIS one is my personal favorite.  Kate apparently loves to watch westerns.  She stays with her Nana each day, and her Papa loves to watch western movies.  Apparently, if the TV is turned to the western channel, Kate tunes in.  Especially on the horse scenes.  So this book is especially appropriate.  Plus, I love that her name is the title character's name!

And, here are a couple of additional cute pictures of Kate from Wednesday of last week and from this Wednesday that I hadn't had a chance to blog about...

 Playing with Rachel...

Playing with a golf ball...

And deciding that it was much easier to go down to the golf ball than to pick it up...

And now I think we're all caught up!  Happy weekend!


  1. I liked Cowboy Kate too because it had her name in it! So perfect!

  2. Hey Kelley I hope y'all are feeling better! Glad I found another south Carolinian blog :)

  3. Soooo sorry to hear y'all have been sick. I hope you're feeling much better now!

    Is yours husband a student pastor? (I noticed student ministry on the big screen.) We teach Sunday school in our student ministry. We love it! It's keeping us young!

    1. Thanks! I think we've finally recovered! Yes, my husband is a student pastor! He's actually the associate pastor and also does the youth (6th-12th grades). They keep us busy! :)


I'd love to hear from you- new friends or old!
