Then came Sunday afternoon. I had to run an errand (Ok, I went to get a much needed massage to help relieve a never ending headache... does it ever end?) and I decided to treat my boys and myself to a treat. After a stop at Starbucks I came home with a Grande Nonfat Chai for myself, a Grande Soy Mocha with Whip for Keith and a CUPCAKE for Oliver. MMMMmmm YUM!!!! The treats were a big hit and the perfect Valentine's day celebration for the family.
Yes, Oliver is still in his PJ's at 4:00 in the afternoon. I was washing his laundry because he didn't have any clean pants in the morning. Next thing you know, it's the middle of the day and he's still in his PJ's. Since we weren't going anywhere we figured it was a good PJ day to go with the rest and relaxation. Ahhhh... he loved it. He loved it so much he didn't want to get dressed or wear shoes today. It is so hard to explain to a two year old why PJ's are not acceptable to wear out in public.
Scott, Geoff, Keith and Bart.
Bart was Geoff's neighbor in Fort Collins. Now, they play in a band together with Bart's wife Betsy.

Exactly two weeks ago today, I came down with a nasty bug that kept me home from work for two days. For the past two weeks I have been battling one ailment or another. Today has been the best so far, so lets hope for a repeat tomorrow.
Oliver came down with something two Friday's ago, five days after I did. He battled a fever for four days. Keith stayed home with him on Monday since I had just missed two days the week before and I'm taking Monday off since Oliver's school is closed for teacher training. Keith also stayed home Tuesday morning to let Oliver sleep in. He woke up fired up and fever free, so he went to school. When he walked in Keith said he hugged Cadence and then ran off and played with Charlie. He was ear to ear smiles and stoked to be back with his buddies. At 3:00 I got a phone call that his fever was back. I took him to the Dr that afternoon and found out he had the beginning signs of an ear infection and pneumonia. Next stop was the pharmacy for some top of the line generic antibiotics.
Keith has been a trooper and has been battling mini versions of what Oliver and I have had. He has been wonderful at taking care of the two of us. Hopefully Oliver and I are on the mend so that we can pamper him next weekend.
Between the three of us, we have covered the following: coughing, sneezing, running nose, fever, headache, stomach ache, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, insomnia, big appetite, no appetite and large doses of crankiness! Needless to say, there are no photos to document these moments.
Oliver and I have a date day planned tomorrow. We have big plans to go to Barnes and Noble in search of new books followed by lunch with Dad. I'm hoping we all wake up feeling wonderful and rearing to go.
We did manage to get out this past Friday for our friend Geoff's 40th birthday. I have a few photos from that night as well as some Valentines day photos of Oliver to share. I'm off to get some more rest, but maybe I'll get to posting the photos tomorrow during nap time. Keep your fingers crossed for a good quality nap. Those don't come around every day now either. Something about Oliver being two and wanting to exert his independence by playing instead of napping. This usually guarantees a disaster by 4 PM.
