15, 16, friends & tired...

Sorry about the lack of posting last night. AB had to work late both last night and tonight, so last night I had a dear friend come over for dessert and good conversation, and tonight I made my way with Quint over to V's home to share a meal and let the kids go crazy playing for a while. Afterward, we made our way to see AB, who was putting on an Improv show with his students.

So it's been a fairly painless non-spending two days and we're doing just fine and dandy. I can't lie though...in sixteen days, I have rarely left the house and it's just as well. I could have seriously done some damage to a Mocha Frappuccino tonight on our way home. Oh, it hurt to keep driving right on by the Starbucks...sob!

Short and sweet ~ and no food pics, because AB wasn't home to create photo-op worthy beauties. Who needs a picture of a can of Campbell's Soup? I mean, I know it's "mmm mmm good", but do we need a picture?

15th Menu:

Breakfast: Cereal and breakfast bars
Lunch: Leftover Roast Beef and Cheesy Potato Casserole
Dinner: Beef & Cheese Chimichanga with chips and salsa (frozen, btw)

16th Menu:

Breakfast: Blueberry Muffins
Lunch: Bean and Ham Soup w. butter crackers
Dinner: YUMMY homemade chili with sour cream and cheese. Delicious cornbread muffins with honey butter and people - it was so darn good, I had seconds of both. Thank you, V - it was a fabulous time, as usual! Love you! I wish I had my camera, so I could have taken a picture of this stuff - it would have been photo worthy for sure!

The only other thing I have is a picture I took of Quint the other night, while he was sitting in his little chair. Lately, about six different people have pointed out to me that Quint looks like AB - or that they see AB in Quint through his smile or facial expressions. (Don't worry, Eloise - I don't think you're crazy!) Truth is, as he develops his personality more and more, I'm sure he does in many ways imitate his very animated Daddy. Of course, we don't see it - but one thing is for sure - if you put Anton and I together - Quint would be the baby you would get. Amazing how God works like that...Quint is definitely our little "mini-me".

Well, we're all a little bit under the weather and I don't know what's up with that. I feel like every other post I'm whining about us being sick again. Annoying! So, my only concern is that I feel like I'm getting that fever/sore throat/really thirsty/too tired thing again. Uh-oh. You know. That little friend I had called Mono? I hope he's not back. I really don't want to go through that again...send a little prayer up for me, eh?

Back tomorrow for 17 - can you believe we've made it this far? I'm a little surprised, myself!

Sending you my prayers and thoughts. I know Mono can be such a pain. My daughter had it in 7th grade. I spent way too much on food today. I have been so good. But tonight, Amanda and I went to the mall. We ate at the food court at our favorite Mongolian BBQ. $20 never tasted like such a waste. And I used to love it. But tonight it just seemed like a waste. Plus, due to a time constraint, I drove thru Taco Bell for Adam and that was $5. And I broke down and let Amanda buy some bult candy, $4.24. SO that was about $30 in one day. Just to illustrate how much damage I can do in one day. I have been so good, and today I just broke down. Oh well, there is always tomorrow. A new start again.

Oh my goodness; I have Always thought that Quint looks like your husband, but I thought you would think I was crazy if I commented that!! I'm going to make the almond bisquick cookies for dessert tonight; have been enjoying the food updates. Hope you can rest and feel better very soon. ~Holly

I was looking at Quint in the picture thinking, Wow, he really looks like AB, and then I scrolled down a little further and read the rest. So, now 7 people think so!

Hope you're feeling better soon. Ben had mono last year and it just took a while for his immune system to bounce back. He caught everything that came our way last year, it was rough. But, it's been a zillion times better this year. Shew!

And, YES!!! Bring Quint over for some sledding fun! Although Ben probably wouldn't ever let him go. :o) He LOVES babies!!! We're in the Cincinnati area (No.KY), and we have some crazy weather here. You never know what's gonna happen! But, we've been loving the snow, and the week off that came with it!!!

Yay, I'm not crazy!

Get well soon, Christie, or better yet, don't even get sick! I hope that your tired achy feelings just go away.
