I've Got The Fever

I've been feeling under the weather since Wednesday night. I was perfectly fine all day, but that night it hit me like a ton of bricks. I'm not sure if it's a cold or a sinus infection. I've had a low fever, sinus pressure, congestion, and a headache for the past few days and I am so. over. it. I have no energy and just keep zoning out!

That's not the only fever going around this house! ;)

Even though I've been sick, I've been on the go. This was supposed to be a free weekend-our first weekend with nothing to do in many months-but that didn't work out!

On Friday, I met Dylan at his school to take him to the book fair. I felt really crappy, but I had to go. A lot of the moms were meeting their kids at school to shop with them, and I didn't want Dylan to feel left out. It was so worth it when I saw the look on his face when he spotted me! I love how he thinks of others. He picked out one book for himself, and then insisted on picking out one for his sister and one for his class. He didn't expect to get anything else, but I treated him to 2 more books. He loves to read, so he was a happy boy!

Today, I felt a bit better in the afternoon, thanks to sleeping in, so we stopped at the mall. The kids had a great time! The big indoor mall is close to us, but the traffic is a pain in the rear and we have tons of stores that are closer, so we hardly ever go. They had a great time exploring, and I will never forget the look on Lexie's face when she walked into the Disney store for the first time! She was in awe! We decided to grab dinner in the food court before heading out. We always take the kids to zoos and festivals and events, but something as simple as a trip to the mall made their day!

The weather has been back in the high 70's the past few days. It's absolutely gorgeous outside! I haven't felt well enough to truly enjoy it, but I think we're going to take advantage of it by going to the pumpkin patch tomorrow morning.

Sunday update: Scratch that-no pumpkin patch for us! I think I overdid it this weekend. We're going to stay in all day, so I can get some rest. I'm disappointed that I haven't been able to enjoy this beautiful weather. Today would have been perfect for the pumpkin patch, but then again, it won't really feel like Halloween if we go wearing summer clothes!
