Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!

Hope your Valentine's Day was a fun one! We had a quiet Valentine's Day at home, which was great, considering we are both sick with sinus infections! We were (are) quite the pair....nothing says "romance" like blowing your nose, coughing repeatedly, and sniffling all night! This year seemed like a good year to stay "in" rather than go out. So, we had a nice meal, I picked up some great dessert from a place I really love, and we watched a movie. Although we were both sick, it was exactly the kind of night we needed. We're both on antibiotics now and slowly on the mend, but this cold weather isn't helping. I'm starting to become very sick of snow and freezing temperatures. I remember this setting in at about this time last year. I really do love winter and lots of things about it, but after 3 months of it, I'm desperately longing for Spring! At least it's sunny out today and I think it's supposed to be a balmy 30 degrees!! That sounds like Heaven compared to the negatives we've been living in!

We both just realized that Monday is President's Day and that means Travis will be home! I love weekends like this...we have almost nothing going on and several days to sleep in. We're going to need the rest because next weekend we'll be "up north" with our junior highers on our annual winter retreat...this marks the anniversary of our first event at Grace...this will be our third winter retreat. I can hardly believe it. Where has the time gone? We're both looking forward to it...there will be lots of outdoor games, drinking hot cocoa, and sitting by the fire. But for now, we are happily holed up inside and enjoying the peace and quiet. Hope your weekend is off to a great start!

I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. I haven't had my annual sinus infection- of course N.C. has been very mild this "winter". Tate is sick now with his first little cold. He's slowing getting over it. It's harder on me than it is him I'm sure! Take care and have fun at the retreat!

You all are always sick. I feel bad for you.. It must be cause of the freezing cold. I'm glad you are having a long weekend. I'm sure your retreat will be so much fun! Get some rest!
