Friday's showers brought out today's flowers...
This is the first Easter Sunday in a long time that I have not gone to church. All of the events of Cate's sickness and ER trips last week finally caught up to me on Friday evening. Call it exhaustion, call it a touch of what Cate had (minus the throwing up), call it whatever you want, but I felt horrible. I slept most of the day Saturday until my parents came over to help move in Daddy's new toy (which Cate also loves).
We got it free from a woman my grandmother works with. Of course Eric is thrilled to have a real piano in the house now.
Saturday night we headed over to my grandmother's for Easter dinner and to meet my cousin Melissa's little girl, Aubree, who was born in January. Melissa, her boyfriend, and baby Aubree were in visiting from Wisconsin. Cate was fascinated by Aubree.
And by the goodies in her Easter basket from Nana.
As soon as I took a few bites of dinner, I knew that I wasn't back to my normal self yet. We ended up leaving early and I spent another evening on the living room floor, watching TV and praying to feel better. Somewhere around the end of Saturday Night Live, I crawled into bed and slept soundly until I woke up this morning...hungry and feeling much better. We took a look at what the Easter Bunny brought Cate.
I still wasn't feeling up to going to church though, so while I continued to sleep a little more, Eric and Cate walked down to the grocery store to get some diapers, which we ran out of this morning (usually I notice when we're low and go to stock up, but having been a little out of it, I didn't get the chance to catch up).
This afternoon I'm feeling much, much, much better. I've always been a bit of a worrier, so I'm not really surprised that the lack of sleep all week because I was worried about Cate finally caught up with me. Even though it's a little chilly right now, the heat is off and the windows are open as fresh air always does a body good. I'm looking forward to enjoying the rest of my spring break which will be spent visiting with friends and getting caught up with some school work and some house work as I head into the final weeks before summer vacation.
Alleluia! He is risen! Happy Easter!
