Valentine's Day

So Eric and Rowan sent me a dozen roses today. They are so pretty and I can't wait until I get to see them. It's just over two weeks away!! I'm enjoying the quiet times now when I get to sleep in. Does that make me a bad Mommy? Ha ha :) I also got a present that feels like a book. I plan on opening it when Eric gets my gift to him. Hopefully tomorrow. I just got these pictures of Tigger (our oldest dog, he's probably 11 years old and sleeps a lot) covered in toys. Eric says he makes a great toy box. I guess Rowan wants to share with Tigger.

I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day with their sweetheart! And for those of us who are separated, We'll see them soon.

So, now I'm feeling better. No more fever or yucky green stuff. But I still have a nagging cough. I assume that's because of the asthma. Dad has been coughing a lot and not feeling that well, and Mom started to feel bad on Friday. She's been running a fever of up to 103 for the last two days. And that was with tylenol. I had her with cool packs last night at midnight to try to get her temp down. This morning we took her to the doctor and confirmed that she has the flu. They gave her anti virals and some for Dad, to prevent him from getting it too. I guess I just have to take my chances :) Jude has been lucky so far.
As Mom said this morning "I'm glad Rowan isn't here" He gets to be up in Idaho with a lot of snow, but no sickness. Eric has sent pictures of how much snow he's dealing with. He's shoveling just fast enough to stay ahead of the accumulation. The chickens are not very happy, they huddle up underneath the cars. I'm glad I'm not there trying to drive to work in all that snow. But it's 80 degrees here in Texas. I'm not sure that's right. It is the beginning of February, isn't it? Anyone else dealing with unseasonable weather?
