I want a do-over.

I want a do-over on the weekend.  I had big plans.  I was going to do a cooking extravaganza which would result in freezer stocked with dinners.  Rykert and I were going to leave Scout with my sister and nieces and go to a movie.  But the best laid plans...

At the end of last week, Rykert came down with a virus (fever, headache, fatigue, blah) and Scout had a fever from her 4 month shots.  I knew it was serious when Rykert skipped his weekly ski night.  I took an impromptu day off, and got a head start on said cooking extravaganza.  But halfway through on Saturday, I felt like I'd been hit by a truck.  Fever, headache, fatigue, blah.  I spent the next 24 hours sweating with the chills and pretending I wasn't really sick.  Mind over matter.   Rykert, who usually plays the sous chef in these cooking explosions, stepped in and saved the day on the half cooked groceries, but I don't have the photographic evidence to publish the post I had planned.  In short, I want a do-over.

But, alas, we hit the ground running on Monday morning, and it's probably going to be a busy week.  We'll see how it goes.

We'll give a rain check for the babysitting. Just put her by the front door and ring the bell any time.

It's scary how feeling sick can hit you all of a sudden and knock your feet from under you. I hope you and your family are feeling better!
