    Weekend Plans

    OK, it is just way to quiet in here!

    DH and I did have plans. The girls were going to MIL's for a sleepover tomorrow night. But, Elizabeth came home from school yesterday with a fever. Scrap that plan! Now we will probably just be staying around the house, waiting for Emily to come down with it, too.

    Anyone have anything exciting planned?

    We have a birthday party tommorow (across the street) for the little gal we babysit sometimes. She turns 1 yr old ! It is a small cake/ice cream thing.
    I am trying to come down with a cold so I don't feel well. Probably some movie night tonight.
    The boys have school off on Monday so I took Monday off work for their last winter break day!
    Hoping this cold passes quickly. Everyone at work is sick and keeps coming to work ! UGH
    Not much of a fun weekend here. My Mom leaves today after I get off work.

    Levi and I are off to Winter Wonder Fest at Navy Pier with a classmate and mom. Then he has swim practice. His former nanny is meeting us there to take him to dinner afterwards as DH and I have a cocktail party to go to. We may go to a friend's restaurant afterwards. Tomorrow DH and I have a play to go to. Sunday, Levi has a bowling birthday party. We have to get ourselves ready to go back to school and me back to work on Monday. Back to the routine.

    I came down with a 102 fever on NYE and now have no voice. A cocktail party and no voice should be fun. The cold started the day after Christmas and has just amped up. No else seems to be getting it which is good.

    Like most people on this board, we'll be working on recuperating this weekend. DS had a cold over Christmas, I was sick over New Years and now it looks like it's back to DS - he came home early from daycare yesterday with a fever. He's home today with DH. Looks like another low-key weekend for us.
