I'm not going to lie, I'm sitting here writing this post with a stiff glass of tequila (I'll have a glass of alcohol please). It's been a week. My Father-in-Law was taken to the ER on Monday after being sick for almost 10 days. They finally discovered that his appendix had burst and was creating a pretty nasty infection. I was in the hospital with him and my mother in law all day Monday, and Joel has been stopping at the hospital after work all week. It's been taxing on everyone, and frustrating, and exhausting, and we really just want him to get better and get home. He's tough as nails, but not feeling well, so we're waiting for the antibiotics to really kick in. Send some positive energy our way if you can! We'd really appreciate it.

The only good thing about this dreary, rainy weather? Leo loves it! He could stare out the window for twenty minutes watching the rain fall, trees shake in the breeze, and cars drive down the street with their lights on. Thank God for toddlers - where else would we get such sweet, simple joy?

Also, I finalllllly found a fun, beach read! I'm really enjoying Southern Solstice, and I paid nothing for it! If you have Prime, Amazon started doing a "Borrowing" feature, so I've borrowed the book,

CrockPot update? We are going with the Cusinart multi-cooker, but I haven't bit the bullet on which size. I'm thinking we need to go with the XL size and go with the 7qt!

Leo is getting a water table for Easter - any recommendations on a good one?

We're busy this weekend with friends and family and getting our loved ones back to good health, and then next week Joel and I are leaving for Los Angeles! We are so excited to see our friends, so excited to fly without our baby, so excited to watch our sweet friends get married, and so excited to meet our newest niece in San Diego. It's going to be packed ten days!
