It’s Sunday again. The week disappeared amid naps, movies, and 13 boxes of kleenex. Poor Miss B slept through three days.
We’ve watched Mary Poppins and The Shaggy Dog (the new one with Tim Allen) several dozen times each. Miss B has eclectic taste.
I didn’t get the flu, but I had some crazy case of allergies. For several days I thought my head was going to explode. Nothing I tried helped. I couldn’t sleep and was utterly miserable. I was also fairly certain that my death certificate would read: death by allergies. I was skeptical when Jake suggested we get an air purifier, but as usually happens in these cases, he was right. I’ve kept myself sequestered in our bedroom with it right next to me and I finally feel human again. Hallelujah! I’m going to live.
Thankfully the boys have been on the mend for several days now and are back to normal. This morning Jake took Jacob and Josh to church while Sam stayed home with Miss B and I. She’s doing much better, but I still wouldn’t want to pass what she’s had on to anyone else. Sick kids at church is a pet peeve of mine.
Losing a week sure threw us off our schedule. Today we were supposed to be arriving in Anaheim for a week at Disneyland. I’m sad we aren’t there. Disney is our family’s happy place. Though I am infinitely grateful that we had a soft place to land during our mini epidemic!!
This week we’re going to explore the local area: the Alamo, Riverwalk, and sub-terrain caves. We also have plans for some family bike rides since we’re picking up our new bikes tomorrow (about time!!) Next week Jake and I will fly to Utah with Jacob to drop him off. Jacob, Josh, and Miss B will stay with our friends in Houston. Can’t believe we’re down to the last 10 days.
After that, everything is up in the air. We’re still waiting to hear what is happening with Jake’s job, at which point we can finalize the last few months of The Big Blue Bus Tour. If I were to go out on a limb and predict anything it would be that he’ll be starting training in New Mexico in May. That’s my best guess. If that’s the case we’ll probably stick around Texas for another month or two and then take the bus east toward New Orleans, Mobile, Savannah, and Key West as the grand finale to our adventure. How cool would it be to take the Big Blue Bus to Key West?!
