Happy weekend to you!

I hope that your week was better than ours… Joseph came down with a nasty chest cold last Saturday and the rest of us caught it by Tuesday. After being extra, super-duper miserable most of Thursday and yesterday and not at all like himself when he’s usually sick, I took Dominic to the pediatrician yesterday afternoon and found out he has a double ear infection :(  I feel so bad for him! Joseph has never had one, but I had TONS when I was little (had tubes when I was in preschool, I think), and I can remember writhing on the bed, holding my ears and crying in pain many times. Hoping he’s feeling better soon!

And since we’re all sick, we cancelled Sunday dinner this week so we don’t spread our germs. Planning on lots of TV, couch time, and recuperating for all of us this weekend! What do you have going on?
