Five of us had strep.
I fell down the stairs.
The van wouldn't start.
Tough things for Garrett at work.
And then it was Wednesday. SHEESH!
Here's to looking at the bright side and hanging on to grace and thanking Jesus for things like penicillin and netflix and friends.
And away we go...
1. It was quite timely that our week of strep coincided with the Disney/Netflix deal. (Basically, Disney is going to move towards offering their movies for TV viewing exclusively through netflix. But it will all take awhile.) Though there are some of the Disney classics I don't care much for, there are a few that I do. Three words: Rescuers Down Under. Oh, yeah.
2. Tonight some awesome friends brought us dinner- homemade runzas and french fries. It was quite delish, as my neighbor would say. Every time I eat a runza, I can't help but think, "Man, this would be even better if it had tomato sauce and peppers and olives and pepperoni and mozzarella in it." But I guess they already have those and they're called calzones. On an unrelated note that is likely to offend the locals, my husbands believes that there are certain regional foods that are, shall we say, an acquired taste: Valentino's pizza and Runzas. I agree with him on the former. Homemade runzas are, however, a great comfort food and even my pickiest of little ones scarfed down a bit. (Thanks, friends!)
3. The kids have been such champs throughout the sickness. The quote of the week comes from Isaac: "The worst part about being sick is that I can't kiss Tessa." He loves that baby girl.

Well, guess that is it for today. In the next few days the kids will be in their first Christmas program (!), I will get a grip on my laundry and my life and my Christmas shopping, and then we will all load up for a trip to Colorado. So there you have it. Next week's quick 5 will be on location from the mountains!
Hope your weekend comes just when you need it, finds you ready to enjoy it, and fills you with good things to give those you love.
Over and out.
