Hello and Happy Monday. Only a few pictures and a few words from this weekend because we had a nasty virus run through our household. Lydia and I dealt with it most of the week, then Joey got hit with it on Friday. Dempsey had a low grade fever a few weeks ago so I’m hoping he was the originator and we don’t have to deal with him having it after Joey!
This was the look of our Friday night. Luckily I was feeling better and had enough energy to put the kids to bed. We watched Top Chef then went to bed ourselves.
Plans to go buy flowers and get the backyard in shape for Memorial Day Weekend were scraped and instead we watched a lot of TV and ate whole wheat waffles. Mid-morning, Dempsey and I took a trip to Target and dropped off a quiche my mom had made for Lauren and Adam who welcomed a new baby boy to the world last Monday! We’re being cautious, so only Joey has met him so far but I’m really really hoping we’re all well enough to go over later this week. A cousin for Demps and Lyds!
The rest of the day was pretty low-key. Joey’s big task was figuring out a replacement for himself in the Colfax Relay. We were all hoping he’d make a turn for the better but by this point it seemed clear he wouldn’t be able to run 6 miles. Luckily, Wayne stepped in for him! 🙌 Briefly got to see him and my sis, plus Lori and Chad so they could get their bibs and baton. After, I made us a corn pasta, which sounds weird but is super good! And we let Lyds sit in her high chair for a bit. She seemed into it! Joey and I started How to Blow Up a Pipeline after the kids went to bed, but with 40 minutes to go, I had to call it quits. Too tired!
Dempsey and I’s Target pick up was black out curtains for our room — too many 6 AM wake ups for our little lady! — and it worked because she slept in! Joey was revived enough to go pick up biscuit sandwiches for us and we got updates from all the relay runners. I think everyone had a good time. Made me kind of sad we weren’t there, even though we hadn’t planned to be there even if Joey had run it 😋 Played outside a little (the air quality in Denver is soooo bad right now 😢), Lyds took a two hour nap (!!!!), made salads and finished our movie. I’d heard good things but thought it was just okay. Had leftovers for dinner, put the kids to bed, watched Succession and went to bed. I’ve been SO tired at night.
Hopefully we’ve all got our sicknesses out of the way and are on the up and up, just in time for MDW and the Bolder Boulder!
