Sometimes I hate thinking of titles.

I'm back to firing on all cylinders, but little KayTar is home sick for the second day in a row. She has been so healthy for so long (at least in KayTar terms) that I don't mind much at all. Of course I wish she was healthy and able to attend school with her friends, but this illness doesn't have that draining feeling of sick again attached to it, which I very much appreciate. The illness itself is not such a big deal, fever since Saturday, cough, congestion...a basic URI. I did take her to the pediatrician yesterday for a nasal swab to rule out flu (in case that is what I had and passed it along to her), but it was happily negative. I would have felt really bad if she got the flu shot and the flu...doesn't seem fair!


Easter was nice enough. Josh and I took shifts for the festivities. He took BubTar to his brother's house for lunch and an egg hunt, then I took BubTar to my parent's house for egg coloring, dinner, and another egg hunt. Even though she didn't get to participate, everyone sent goodies home for KayTar. She was pleased as punch and didn't seem to mind spending the day resting at home.


We're having a lazy sort of day, which seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Between school and speeches and sicknesses, our weeks have been pretty busy and a laid back day to play catch up was needed. I'm sure if it happens again tomorrow I'll be climbing the walls, but for today it is a nice little break. A little laundry, a little studying, a little snuggling, a little cleaning, a little playing...a little bit of a lot of things.

Titles are hard! Sounds like Easter went well in a nutshell and hopefully Kaytar got to go to school today.

Of course I wish that KayTar was at 100%, but I'm still glad you guys have had such an enjoyable day...getting some R&R at home.

I really like your egg pics, by the way. Glad it was a good Easter for everyone!

I'm loving the feel/vibe of this post Kyla. And the pictures, very laid back and cool--so appropriate for the tone.

Here's to less cooties for the 'Tars =)

Sounds like you got nailed by the sick. I hope you're all on the mend. Love the picture of your little one craddling an egg in her hands.

Perty pictures. Love coloured eggs. What am I? four?

A little relaxing and all isn't so bad.
