It's been a wild two weeks since I last posted.
My grandpa passed away somewhat suddenly, which prompted a last-minute trip to Idaho last week. Nothing like travelling with two young kids at the last minute to throw me into a panic! It went really well and the funeral was...nice? pleasant? how does one say that and not sound morbid?? My grandpa was a wonderful man and I'll miss him very much, but he had undiagnosed kidney failure for the last six months or so and towards the end it became obvious that it was his time to go. I'll probably write more later.
So we got home on Tuesday, and I'd had a terrible sore throat from Thursday (I think) on. It was bad BAD to swallow, to the extent that I'd wake up during the night because I was swallowing convulsively and it HURT. So I didn't get much sleep, but blamed it on the low humidity in Idaho (like 15%, I think, vs. the current 65% here in Oklahoma). I finally made it to the doctor today and it turns out I have strep throat. ACK!! DH has it also, although his symptoms are more severe than mine. His started a few days after mine, so hopefully we can get him taken care of a little sooner in the illness than mine. Thankfully both kids seem to have avoided it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way!!
Anyway, I have lots of pictures to post once I get them off the camera and play with them a bit, so hopefully in the next few days I'll be able to do that.
