TIMMMBERRR!!!

The terrible spinach reaction was Sunday night, and on Wednesday I was scheduled to return to work for a really difficult 3 day assignment. I still felt sore and achy and NOT my best, but I wasn’t bad enough I felt calling in sick was an option. Besides, thanks to vacation in … Continue reading

Weaning, Post-TED Food Trials & MCAD

It’s been a rough few weeks. In fact, there’s been so much happening that I can’t fit it all in one post, so this will be a nifty “ongoing storyline”. To begin, we do have some exciting news! October 30th, I arrived home from work in the early afternoon. As soon as I … Continue reading

Baseline? What’s That?

This. Is getting. Ridiculous. Last month, we all got sick after our Chicago trip. Jed and Darrel bounced back quickly, but Zac and I had a harder time recovering. We had barely begun feeling better when, about three weeks ago, we all got the stomach bug. Seriously? Apparently, every Fall … Continue reading

Holding Pattern

We’ve been in a bit of a holding pattern the last month. Sickness ALWAYS throws our plans to the wind. After our trip to Chicago, the boys caught whatever cooties I came down with. It took almost two weeks for the sneezing and heavy mucous production to abate for all … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 4

Read Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 first! Having spent $50 on the cab to get to the museum, we just didn’t have the funds available to take a cab back. Public transportation time! It really wasn’t that long of a walk to the train station, but after such … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 3

Read part one and part two first.  After we left the kids science exploration area, we decided to go to the Viking exhibition. The kids and I read the Magic Tree House series as bedtime stories, and one of the books covered Vikings. I thought this would be a great … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 2

Read the first part here.  Saturday morning dawned bright and early. Thanks to our late arrival, we were all sluggish and running late that morning. By the time we had dressed, cooked and eaten breakfast, gathered our lunch/beverages/school supplies, and ridden the shuttle van back to the airport, it was … Continue reading

Homeschooling Flight Attendant Style Part 1

On Monday, September 7th, I was wasting time between flights at work one day and decided to take a peek at what I would be facing for my commute to work the next weekend. My next assignment was to begin Sunday morning at 6:00 a.m., so obviously I needed to … Continue reading

Sick Again

It’s been so quiet here for the last two weeks that I can hear crickets chirping, but there’s a good reason: we broke out of our comfort zone in a BIG way – and then we all got sick. Boo. I’ll share more about our trip in a whole post of its … Continue reading

Swimming Holes and Copperheads

One Friday a few weeks ago, Darrel woke me up with the news that he had decided we should go swimming that afternoon. This was huge! My children have never been swimming in their lives. We’ve wanted to take them, but thanks to Epsom salts, we know Zac can have FPIES … Continue reading
