I've acquired my first sickness of the season and it has knocked me sideways. Despite feeling like I want to do nothing but crawl into my cozy clean-sheeted bed, I had a productive weekend at home. Sunday was one of the first weekend days in months that I spent at home with no plans to leave. My boys' bedroom is now clean, all of our beds have clean sheets, my bathroom is sparkling and the laundry is done and put away. Now if only the toys could stay in one spot for more than 30 seconds!
