Yesterday Stunk...

bad.

My mom flew in for a short visit on her way home from her Alaskan cruise with my dad on Sunday. Yesterday, I woke up with the flu. Yes, I somehow caught the flu in August! I'm so thankful she was here, she was able to totally take care of Maddox and me all day so that Kyle could still work.

I seriously don't remember the last time I was that sick, though. I woke up at 4am with full body aches and a fever. I laid on the couch all day long and was in and out of sleep and threw up 8 times. Blah.

Thankfully, I woke up feeling awesome this morning and we were able to go out for a few errands. I found a twin bed for Maddox at a consignment furniture store (Kyle and I just need to go buy it and pick it up tomorrow)and dropped off a rocking chair to be consigned. Then, we went to JC Penny and had Maddox's 18 month pictures taken. He was really cooperative and the pictures turned out super cute.

Please be praying tomorrow, we have a home inspection at 1!

We are going to be in Portland the 9th-12th. Jeff's wedding is on Friday the 10th, so we were originally going to head home Saturday.. But we figured we might as well stay till Sunday since we can. However, if you guys are in the midst of moving and such we will understand if you would rather we didn't stay the night Saturday night. But if we do, we will hang out Saturday, probably half of Sunday, and head home.
