Alive!

Wooo-weeee.  It's been a week around here.  Kenley had an ear infection, which Ashlynn trumped by having her sniffles turn into her random night time high fevers. Doctor couldn't find a cause so we just did a lot rest, fluid, tylenol, peppermint oil, and cold wash cloths to the head.   And a lot of skipped sleep from mom.

This is the second month she's gotten random fevers at night and then been almost fine during the day, and the fevers are actually scary high.  Thankfully that ended, but my bout with the flu began.  Down and out Friday and Saturday, hard.

Ashlynn had a full weekend of birthday parties, only the second I attend, which might have wiped me out as much as her.  Today I volunteered at my local Just Between Friends sale helping with set up and then finishing tagging all my items that I'll run back tomorrow.  This is my first time selling with Just Between Friends, and while I haven't shopped at an event and don't plan to attend ours, if you are looking to buy or sell baby or children's items definitely check one out if they are in your area.  I have been really impressed with how ours has been put on and how smoothly it all runs.

So that's where I've been - purging our storage space of all things brightly colored and plastic and not moving from my bed.  I'm hoping I have enough time to make some Irish Potatoes in the morning to take in to A's class when I pick her up, but it's not looking good from a motivation stand point.

Hopefully, I'll be back with some redeemable content soon.

  7. They are franchised, so some may be better ran than others, but definitely a great source for second hand stuff. Would be great for grandparents or other caregivers looking for things like car seats, strollers, feeding accessories, etc.

  8. I hope they're feeling better! My 8 year old gets random high fevers at night, and is perfectly fine during the day. She has always been like that! About 95% of the time, it's just a fever!
