This is the first morning we woke up to NO fevers!!! We woke up this morning and felt so good that we made a spontaneous decision to go to Portland! Yeah! I desperately need to go to Costco and the kids desperately want to spend some of their Christmas money at Toys R Us. We figure the kids can sleep in the car. I am so excited!! Everyone's wearing shoes for the first time in 8 days.
We're just waiting for Paul to get home from the Corps so we can leave. In the meantime, the kids took down the Christmas tree. I sat on the couch and wrapped up the ornaments while they brought them to me. It was a pretty good deal for me ;) I still need to get the rest of the stuff down that is throughout the house. It will feel good to put this all behind me and get on with the year.
