Simple Sunday – Stress + Rapid Pace = Sick (and a cheer-me-up from Cody)

The spike in my stress level from Cody’s doctors appointments Thursday along with the rapid pace of my life as of late has caught up with me.  Sick with a nasty cold, I spend all yesterday lounging around blowing my nose and taking naps while Husband took the boys out of the house on a day long adventure to the Seattle Science Center.

Today I feel better but still not fully well.  I worked on some school work and puttered around the house.  While cleaning, I came across this sweet message on the boys’ chalkboard left by Cody.

Cheerful Message

It was a lovely little pick-me-up that made me feel better.  When I told this to Cody he said that his chalkboard note had a little magic in it.  The picture shows me jumping up and almost touching the sky.  I land next to some small worms and a treasure (the signed by Cody is the treasure).

    Sometimes it’s not so bad to get a cold and to slow down a bit! Hope you feel better soon.

    That is so sweet! I’ve never been to the Seattle science center, but will have to check it out sometime! Hope you are feeling better and are able to get a bit of relaxation in. 🙂

  5. Often times our body has a way of making us take care of it… and sometimes that means forcing us to slow down for a bit. I hope you feel better!
