"A" Bug

The Flu, the A strain to be exact.

We have it over here. I think it really stinks because we had a ton planned for this weekend.

My grandparents, who were in the car accident that I wrote about here and here, got into town yesterday. I have not seen them for about 2 years and tonight we were supposed to play cards together. Tomorrow we were going to do a big breakfast, and on Sunday my niece and nephew are getting baptized with a big party after wards.

Here I am at home with sick kids not knowing when or if I will even get to see my family on this big weekend. I guess that is just how life works.

Now to count my blessings, we caught it early and Tamaflu should help kick it much faster. The pediatrician is treating Makenzie with a prophylactic dose just in case. At the first sign of illness J and I will be heading to the pharmacy for our $70.00 box of medicine!

So today I played with pictures. I am not a pro by any means but it is something I like to do and can do from the comfort of my home. I have always loved pictures and could kick my self sometimes for not taking the time to learn how to take better pictures a long, long time ago. 

I spent a while looking a pictures today. Getting ideas and checking out other peoples styles. The Fix it Friday post and linkey was really fun because I got to look at the exact same picture and all of the many ways to edit that one picture!

I read a lot about actions and even figured out how to unzip a file. Moving up in the world!!! So I had to try it out!

Makenzie thought standing on her head in therapy yesterday was great fun! She didn't really want to do much for her OT so they did some body awareness and circulation stuff inspired by yoga!

This was one of my most favorite pictures from the park yesterday. I find it amazing when you boost the color and sharpen a bit how much better the picture looks!

This is very addicting. It feels good though to finally LIKE to do something that is realistic  for once in almost 4 years! So even though I got absolutely nothing done today I sure had fun.

Please say an extra prayer tonight for my sick family. Pray no one else catches this nasty flu bug and that my two sick boys wake up in the morning feeling better!!!

Believe... Prayer Works!

I'm so glad you found something to do that you really like that is just for you! I wish I could do that! Or at least find someone here to take good pictures and edit them for us. I love the idea of having pictures that look like how you see your kids. I don't know if that makes sense but I'm glad you're doing it!
