Finally Closed on our New House!!!

We closed on our new house this past Monday! YAY!!! We still have yet to close on the house we are selling because of difficulites with our buyer pushing back the closing date. But hopefully that will be done the beginning of September. We still won't be able to move for a couple of weeks. We are living among a maze of boxes at the moment. I made the mistake of buying a brownie mix at the grocery this weekend. Guess what...brownie pan and anything that could possibly be used as a brownie pan are packed up. The boys were so upset. I'm going to have to go buy one of those disposable pans or borrow from a friend.

The past several days we have all been sick with respiratory crud. Ben got it really bad and was down for several days. I even had to sleep on the couch one night this weekend because of him coughing and blowing his nose all night. Poor thing couldn't sleep because his head would get so stopped up. I tried to keep my distance, so I wouldn't get it. (I was just sick a couple of weeks ago) Made the boys wash hands often, drink lots of OJ, and be careful not to share glasses or food. Yesterday I started sneezing and sniffling too. Cody has had good days, then bad days. He has had a bad cough and runny nose since last week. I think he is getting better, then daycare calls and says he is laying around and has a low-grade fever. I had to unpack a couple of bathroom supply boxes with medications and thermometers this weekend. I guess it is a good thing that we aren't moving this coming weekend because Ben was too sick this past weekend to pack up the garage and his workshop. So far Caleb has only had a stopped up nose. Last night he was cuddled up under a blanket with me and Cody. Ben came in the room and said, "Oooh Caleb you are sitting in a dangerous spot." Caleb looked confused and Ben pointed at us and said, "Sick and sicker." Caleb quickly jumped up.

Too funny. "Sick and sicker." Well sorry you guys have been sick. I miss you all! I can't wait until our October trip! It can't get here soon enough.

Must be sympathy sickness. We've been sick as well, everyone w/sinus infections or ear infections. Hope y'all get better soon! Great news on the house!
