What a week!

I can't wait for this winter to be over. I've had a cold and flu bug again this week. It kicked my butt this time around like it did last month. This is what I get for not getting my flu shot. I've gotten it every year for 10 yrs and haven't got sick like this and definately not 2 times in 2 months. Now my hubby has it too. The worst thing is my little grandson (almost 4 months old) got quite sick too. In fact, his mom took him to the doctor who gave him an inhaler but told Kandi that if things got worse or he got a fever to take him to the ER with it being a holiday weekend. Well, on sunday he ended up at the hospital. Thankfully after a chest x-ray and a saline mask they sent him home with mommy. The doctor said it was a bad respiratory cold and to keep giving him his inhaler as needed. Poor little guy, there is nothing worse then a baby who is sick and there really isn't much you can do for them. He seems to be feeling better, but still has quite a rattle in his chest.
I got to see all three of the grand children this week which was great. I was feeling somewhat better yesterday so I was able to go to "Dancers for Smiles" to watch Hannah in her fundraiser dance. What a cutie she is. Keira, is so excited because she has her first lose tooth! She was there last night wiggling it and wiggling it trying to lossen it! The cutest thing is she had her mommy bring her tooth holder just in case it did come out. It will be so exciting when she does lose it.
Sunday was my husbands birthday, we went out for breakfast and spent a quiet day at home. (other than the couple hours I was at the hospital with Kandi and Everett)
We watched NASCAR-Daytona 500, which was just what he loves to do this weekend every year!

Valentines Day

Do you do anything special for Valentines Day? We generally exchange cards but that is really it for us.
Our very first Valentines Day was 2 days after our very 1st date. Arend had gone back home to Kincardine (we lived in Cambridge at the time) after a weekend at his brothers (and my sister who is married to Arends brother).
We had had our 1st date at Lil Big Horn in Cambridge and spent some time together on the Sunday before he left. To my surprise the next day when I got home from work there was a note on the door that there was a package for me at the florist. We actually thought it was for my daughter who was dating a guy at the time too. But SURPRISE, it was for me and it was the most beautiful dozen long stemmed roses that I have ever seen!
I guess I must have made some sort of impression on our date to have been so lucky to have gotten such beautiful flowers so soon!
I certainly fell in love with a wonderful man who is the love of my life!
