The Week In Review

Well technically today is the beginning of the week, but I am referring to last week. There hasn't been much going on around here. These January and February winter weeks seem to blur themselves together in a cold, dreary way.

Ella didn't have school on Monday so we headed to the mall. What better place to spend time on a cold, dreary day. Even when the weather is warmer than average it's still not warm enough to hang around outside. The mall was nice. I don't think anyone actually purchased anything but we had a nice lunch.

Ella had her second swimming lesson on Wednesday evening. It's been a change for her to go from the only person in her class to being one of four but she's doing really well.

I've been running a lot on the treadmill, but have finally succumb to injury. I have these shin splints that have been limiting my running. I wish it was something that I could just run through and they would get better but I don't think that's going to be the case. I think I'll be walking for a while until they get better.

Ella had a fever yesterday that was hovering around 104 and 103 with Tylenol. Finally after midnight it started going down and by this morning was only at 100. Other than the fever and little cough she was fine. Eating and drinking and said she felt fine so I wasn't too worried. She's downstairs playing with Sam and I'm really hoping that he doesn't end up with this too.

The Vikings game is tonight and I wish that it was earlier in the day. I'm not sure what we're going to do until them. I'm thinking not a whole lot of anything, which isn't a bad thing I suppose.

This is the last week in January then on to February. I'm so excited for spring this year I just can't wait until it gets warmer outside!!
