I'm here and still kicking.
Life has been a little crazy. I got back on Wednesday from a seriously LOVELY trip to Florida to see my seriously lovely friend Jenny and her seriously lovely hoard of children (once you have 3+ children I vote they be called a "hoard").
I would share with you all my awesome pics I took but I decided that it was a good idea to put my 1 MONTH old iphone into my pocket. And then go into the ocean. Well, it WASN'T a good idea...in case you were wondering. The phone is dead. All the tricks on helping water logged phones doesn't apply to phones that have soaked for a good 15-20 min. Soooo, there is an old non-smart phone on it's way here from my mother in law that I will use until one day we save up for a new one. Hmph. So, THAT was lame.
Otherwise the trip was just what the doctor ordered. Lots of sun, good talks, the warmth. Perfect. Jack was an absolute trooper. On the way there the trip was broken up into 2 legs...one 3 hour long and one 2 hours. They corresponded with his nap times so he slept a good 1 hour of each and the rest of the time he was great. On the way back to San Francisco it was 2 legs but one was an hour and the other almost 6 hours. I was a little nervous for that last stretch. He slept 1 1/2 hours of it and then the rest...he was great. Didn't cry once. I mean, I worked hard to keep him entertained but yeah...he did really well. At the end everyone cheered for him and said what a great job he did and he clapped with them...which basically won them all over.
I of course caught some sort of weird bug. Possibly strep? I've never had strep but this is a sore throat that I have never experienced. So painful that you basically grimace/want to cry every time you swallow your spit. Awful. I'm trying to ride it out without antibiotics. If I'm not significantly better by Monday I will go to the doc. I THINK I feel better today soooo...? Here's hoping. :)
And here are a couple of photos of our little Jack man to showcase the mad photo skills my friend Jenny has. Seriously. She's good. I would pay to have her do family shots if I could!!! :)
