Home Again

We had a wonderful time visiting Disneyland last week, truly the happiest place on earth. I loved every minute of it -- seeing the sights (that I hadn't seen in nearly 30 years), enjoying the beautiful weather, being with loved ones, and mostly watching the joy and excitement on the faces of Maya and Mason. It was a lovely week. It really was.

Natalie has posted a lot of pictures but I, for some reason only known to Blogger, don't seem to be able to. Not sure why but there you have it. Annoys the heck out of me!! If it ever allows me to do so, I will post some cute pics of Mark and Chris on their Segway tour.

At any rate, the newest news is that I am sick. I started with a very sore throat and congestion in my ears mid last week but it got progressively worse over the weekend. Then last night my right eye become very swollen and when I got up this morning it was stuck shut (never a good sign!) so I was on the phone to the doctor at 7 a.m. this morning. She checked me out and said that I do not have strep (which I had wondered about since there's been a lot of that here and the throat has been so sore) or an ear infection (although the right ear is completely congested -- but not infected) but I do have pinkeye. Yippee.

So now I'm throwing away eye make-up, washing towels and pillowcases, and wiping down anything that might have had contact with my face in the past 48 hours.

Welcome home!

glad your back and glad you had the best time at disney! so sorry you have pinkeye. i had two kids with that in december and its not a picnic thats for sure. hope you get better soon jan!

Mia said...

Oh no! Not the welcome home reception you would have hoped for... I hope that you are feeling better soon. Get some rest if you can. I have had tons of problems with blogger lately too, starting with the whole spell check issue. I did like Natalie suggested and switched to firefox which resolved the spell check issue, When I have a problem posting pictures I have had to save all the text close my browser all together then go back in and before I type anything upload the pictures. Crazy right! Hope something works for you.

Sounds like Disneyland was tons of fun! I don't think it matters what age you are, it's still the happiest place! Hope your pink eye goes away---that is not fun. I guess that's what happens when you party so much!!!j/k

Did they give you the eye drops for conjunctivitis (pink eye)? Those drops are amazing...should clear you up in no time!

SO glad you're all back. Things just fall asleep around here without you and Nat!

Pinkeye's one of those things that kids get all the time, right? It's gotta be the kid in you oozing out :) Hope it gets better quick!
