Catching Up & Catching Cold

Conrad and I had a wonderful weekend. Since Isabelle was as my parent’s until Saturday evening, we went shopping and re-did our bedroom, which I am very pleased with. We got new curtains, which Conrad was totally excited about. I had only valences up (over blinds). He just didn’t get a valence’s purpose. But was excited about the curtains that help keep the early morning sun out. Never mind that they don’t work to keep the early morning children out!

We also got a new duvet and sham’s at West Elm, and new frames and matte’s to highlight our new family pic’s in our bedroom. I’ll post pictures soon. I still didn’t find throw pillows I have been looking for in a nice autumn shade of orange, or a chair slip cover (by the way, does anyone have any good advice on kinds of slip covers to get??), and we haven’t painted the walls yet. But overall, I am still very pleased!

We topped the night off with a late dinner at the Cheesecake factory. Very crowded but the food was pretty good, and of course, the Cheesecake was really good!

I also started the washing and packing process in anticipation of Baby M’s arrival. We got much done before we picked up Isabelle on Saturday night, and by Sunday afternoon I started coming down with a wretched cold. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep last night and I was jonesin’ for some Nyquil. Oh sweet alcoholic sleep….I resisted the urge and sucked on sugar free cough drops all night, as I tossed and turned, coughed and blew. It’s already been a long morning.

Yea, we have all been sick too. We can't seem to get rid of it. Even our babysitter is sick today and Eric had to stay home with the baby. (Of course he is still sick and so it the baby, so he is happy to stay home.) Hope you feel better soon. We're praying for you.

Nellie, I'm hoping that today brings you a litte relief. We can't wait to see what the doctor says today. Make sure you call me. Our offer is still on....we're ready to drive down and pick up Isabelle for more Oma and Opa time and rest time for you and Conrad. :-) Love, Oma
