I didn't explicitly mention it, but we obviously didn't go to Disney World. Oh, darn. I didn't think Jim would take me up on the Disney/spa trade off anyway!
We are 0 for 3 on vacations where Jim doesn't get sick! He got sick toward the end of our honeymoon, was on his death bed the whole time we were in Aruba for Kristine's wedding and got sick Saturday on this trip...and is still "very" sick (to his "credit" he didn't get sick the two times we've gone to Chicago, I don't think). Sheesh, it is like having two kids to take care of. Although, last night he said I was super fun to go on a vacation with and that I take really good care of him. Hmmm...too many meds? He also asked if he was being annoying and I honestly replied, "YES!"
We made it home safe and sound yesterday (thanks Auntie Becca and Pete for picking us up!). Although, Finn was lucky the airplane windows don't open, or he would have found himself floating toward earth somewhere in the midwest! He cried, whined or screamed about 90% of the flight. It was miserable for everybody. It was a bad time for him (prime nap time), and he would NOT go to sleep. Eventually, the flight attendants had the person next to us move so we had more room for Finn, which kind of worked, but he still wouldn't sleep. Argh. Next time we are totally drugging him before we leave ;)
We only get daddy three days this week and then he is traveling for work again for a week and a half. Boo. Lots to do today, like unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping and a play date with ECFE friends! So not used to it being 35 degrees when I wake up! Hoping to find my camera cord today.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
