I have sat around in my pajamas for the last 36 hours, fighting some sort of virus that alternately has me feeling feverish and nauseous. Lovely. Tea, water and for some reason last night, oven roasted carrots have been my diet making that diet resolution pretty mute. I have worked on my blog and edited most of the pictures from the holidays. Sad they are over.
My family met in Florida for a very nice, relaxing holiday reunion that has become our bi-annual tradition over the past 7 years. Unfortunately we were plagued with illness. My brother and sister-in-law and their two sons did not even make it due to the flu. My sister was a day late due to stomach bug, which she accidentally shared with me, our other sister and my oldest daughter. Still, the trip was fun.

All in all, it was a great time. I read a lot and really got some good sleep. The house had a heated pool and our kids played a lot on the beach and in the pool. I think that was probably the best part of the house, the fact that we could literally throw a rock and hit the beach and that our kids could go down there by themselves.

Steve and I pawned our kids off on my sisters and had a fun date on new year's eve. Then we took Delaney to go hear two great bands. Steve was not feeling well, so we cut it short and went home to set off fireworks. As always, too short, but still great.
Fun times to carry me through the rest of the winter.
