happy bench monday


bench monday the infirm jack-o-lantern edition...
or happy jacks. 
we just cannot kick these germs in our home..
kellen seems almost 100%,  but casey has had a relapse and now hives (she almost always gets hives when a bad virus grabs her.  poor thing)  and now i got it.  i mean really what did i expect when i slept with, wiped noses of, got coughed on by, the little people i love in my home for the past 2 plus weeks.  i drank LOTS of oj and took my vitamins and drank water and washed my hands a lot,  i was  just bound to lose the battle.   so here i sit, puffs plus lotion is my new best friend.  (for real,  how did i live 36 years without lotion in my tissues???)  i clearly remember the chaffing and chapping that blowing your nose usually brings,  so THANK YOU puffs!  i wasn't feeling inspired to jump on a bench at all,  but then i remembered the sad looking jack-o-lanterns sitting on our stoop which are destined for the trash man tomorrow.  they are quite slimy, rain logged,  and growing some serious mold inside.   i figured they deserved one last hurrah before they go.  so here we are,  all looking a little bit infirm.  happy monday everyone.

feel better soon, mama!

i too have two little ones who battled a bug this past weekend. fevers, coughing, and we had to skip trick or treating.

I always think slightly "worn" pumpkins are all the creepier! Happy Bench Monday!

Such a sorry state...when the mama gets it too and starts identifying with the infirm pumpkins. Snuggle down, and feel better soon!
