I was really productive last weekend. Crazy productive.
Like 9 loads of laundry... washed, dried, folded and put away. All in one day.
That put away part... that's a big deal. I'm really good at leaving laundry baskets full of folded clothes sitting around.
All kinds of things crossed off my To-Do-List last weekend.
Which was good.
Because I spent most of my evenings this week like this... 
(Sorry for the lousy picture. My phone was close, my camera was not.)

Poor little Gretchie started running a fever Wednesday morning. 103* most of the time. 
She wouldn't eat or drink or do much of anything. She just wanted held. And it was like holding a little space heater. Poor, sad baby. 

Corey stayed home with her the last two days. I was worried she was close to getting dehydrated, so I got a last minute sub today and went with Corey to take her to the doctor. Strep test was negative... just a virus. We spent several hours just like this today and luckily her fever finally broke. 

By evening, she was back to her happy, spunky little self. She ate more for supper tonight than she has in the past 3 days. (And kept it all down, too. Yay!) We were so happy to see that sparkle back in her eyes. 

I guess she just needed a day with her momma. =)

i love the picture of you and Gretchie... what a sweet, sweet face...and, while she was sick, a wonderful memory of loving your baby girl and being the best momma... :) so glad she's feeling better... :)

Good job mama,
She looks content and peaceful sleeping on you :) Glad she is feeling better now! Also... nice work on the NINE LOADS of laundry! I did like 4 last weekend... they are still piled (unfolded) on my husband's side of the bed since he's gone right now :)

Poor dear! "like holding a space heater" - that is a funny phrase! Made me chuckle. So true though when they are sick like that!! But children are a bit more cuddly!

i secretly like it when my kids are sick (well, not puking sick) because there is lots of cuddle time!

I'm glad she's feeling better! (and I had to laugh at the leaving folded clothes in baskets, I do that all of the time!)
