I Feel Like I Need to Post Something

I returned today from spending a few days in Ohio with my friend Anne.  It was so nice to sleep in a comfortable bed with peace and quiet all around.  No baby monitor, no swooshing of the vent, no suction machine, no demands.  Something all of us moms need every once in awhile.  I didn't take my computer and I didn't take my camera. So, I've got nothing to share.

Everyone survived in my absence (not that I was worried).

It's back to reality tomorrow tonight the second I walk in the door.

Unfortunately, I've got nothing new, nothing exciting and not even any pictures to share.

But, I really do appreciate all of you who check in on us.

We are all well.

Except for Mary.  She has an eye infection (in addition to the flu that won't seem to go away), so Mark took her to the pediatrician today.  The last time our pediatrician saw her was in 1995*.

Okay, so, I don't do well-checks.  Is that so wrong?

(*she's been to the doctor since 1995, just hasn't seen our primary pediatrician since before we moved to St. Louis).

I've been doing a lot of reading lately.  I'll have to share some of the books I've read and give you my take on them.  Some good stuff! (Thanks Caty!)

More later ... thanks for checking in.

No camera!? No computer!? You were serious about taking a break, glad you did & glad you enjoyed yourself. I can't seem to go away without the laptop & camera.

I'm happy to hear you got a break, did it feel strange?
I need one of those...
Have you read Room by Emma Donoghue
and I am such a book nerd so here's another one The Little Locksmith Katharine Butler Hathawy.

Heh. Who needs well visits? We see enough doctors! Glad you had a great weekend and saw a good friend.
