In Which Everyone But Me Is Sick, So It's Only A Matter Of Time

So both the guys are sick now with some new bug.  Whoopie.  I'm drinking a whole lot of immune booster-type vitamin C drinks in a desperate attempt to ward off the nasty stuff so that I won't be bogged down with taking care of the guys and packing and being sick.  Because that would not be fun.

Connor spent the day home again.  By evening he sounded much less congested and he's not snoring (or throwing up) like he did last night and during his nap today, so I'm hoping that it was just a 24 hour bug and he'll be over it tomorrow.  We'll just have to see. 

I spent most of my work time today delving into the giant box maze that is our office, which is where I had been storing all of the boxes I'd packed.  Of course it would have made logical sense to you know, pack the office first before I stacked up all of those boxes in front of everything, but apparently logic and I are not very well acquainted.  So I moved all of the boxes to our bedroom and Connor's bedroom, which have both been packed, and now Connor, Jer and I are all sleeping in the living room, but at least I can get to the stuff in the office.  I'm hoping to finish that up tomorrow and tackle the living room.  We'll see how far I get-- Connor's MASSIVE file collection may bog me down for a little while. 

I did manage to sneak out of the house this evening after Connor went down for bed.  I drove over to see how the new house looked (and also to pick up more dishwasher detergent, scrubbing brushes and cheese, but that's beside the point) and was amazed at how quickly things are moving! 

All of the floors are in and it's just the trim that's being worked on now, the kitchen is sporting a gorgeous tile backsplash and the fantastic faux paint finish on the cook top hood is currently being completed, and the master bathroom has a beautiful glass tile backsplash now (reminds me a little of tortoiseshell-- isn't it beautiful?) that will probably be grouted in the next day or two.  I'm so glad I got the chance to sneak away; the place has really become a sanctuary for me and I love going by and sneaking some quiet time to imagine the happy adventures the three of us will have in this home.

Can't wait to move in!

Wow, Jess. The wood floor and the built-ins and everything look superb. Everything has come together beautifully. I really love that backsplash too. We considered something along those lines above our cook top, but ultimately went with travertine instead. I'm so excited for you all to move into your gorgeous home!

Stay well! Those glass tiles are beautiful- I love glass tile. I can't wait to see the house when it is completely finished. You have really done a gorgeous job on that house!

Jess, it all looks so beautiful! I can't wait to *read* about the adventures you'll have there.

Ooohhhhh so PRETTY! I'm a little jealous, but mostly just happy happy HAPPY for you guys; y'all deserve every happiness in your lovely new home :)

As to the sickness? Ha. Good luck with that. I just recently had my three little boys drop like dominoes (antibiotics for all three within four days) and then the BIG boy as well and a week went by during which I took vitamins, washed my hands raw, and kept my mouth shut.

Then my husband, DANG HIS HIDE, said "well hey, at least YOU didn't get sick" and I felt a little tired, took a nap while the youngest did, and woke up coughing.


Here's hoping you have better luck, and tell Jer I said not to marvel over it if it starts looking like you do, because it will CURSE YOU IF HE DOES!

The house looks gorgeous!
