February 9 – Energy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHi and Happy Monday.  Hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was very low-key and we used little energy as we are trying to get over colds.

We had time to just veg out, catch up on shows, read, build new Lego creations, and talk.  Also, we were in our pj’s for most of the weekend.  With so much always going on, this down time was really nice.

I am, however, ready to get back to our normal routine and have us be feeling good and not sick.  I took Ian to the doctor Saturday morning.  He had a flu test and a strep test and both came back negative.  Thank goodness for that!  So far, no fever!  Yeah. That is great news!

Normally Ian is a bundle of energy.  I remember days before he went to school that he would talk all day.  He still can talk a lot when he is at home, but now he takes time to play by himself.  He also likes to build things, color, read, and do so much more.  I so love listening to his ideas.

This photo is an old one of Ian. We were at a beach in Florida and he was excited and ready to go.  Talk about energy!  Don’t kids amaze you?  They do me.  Unless Ian is sick, he goes 125 percent from when he wakes up until bed time.  I just wish I had the energy he does.

Today I am thankful for:

  • Listening to Ian explain a Lego build
  • Broccoli and cheese soup
  • Footed pajamas and warm socks
  • Time to relax and be lazy at home
  • My family and friends
  • Good health
  • Hugs from my hubby and son
  • Laughing about a family joke
  • Planning time with friends
  • Lunch dates with Kirk

I wonder how much energy will be used the rest of today?  Probably quite a bit.  Should be fun!
