Spring, Sick Kids, Cleaning House, & Flea Market!

(picture from
I love this time of year. The flowering trees are one of my favorite things about Spring in Virginia. Dogwoods...ahhhh!

My kids have been sick for the past couple of weeks, really. Zach had scarlet fever, and Taylor Fifth's Disease. It sounds like we should have a lock-down quarantine around here. Things are going alright, though. I think everyone is on the mend.

Everyone has been talking (or blogging) about spring cleaning lately. I haven't felt well enough or had the energy to even think about it. But my mom came over and for a few days and we cleaned, rearranged, decorated, hung stuff up, threw stuff away, and cleaned some more. Whew! If I didn't know she loved me before, I know it for sure now! :)

This Saturday is my favorite JUNKIN' event of the year! It is a flea market called Thirteen Acres and I have gotten a slew of great stuff there in past years. They used to do it twice a year, but now it is only once. I CAN'T WAIT! Can you tell I'm a little excited?!!!!! I'll be sure to fill you in on the treasures I bring home!

3 love notes to me!:

I can't believe the kids have been so sick. It sounds like you've had a rough couple of weeks. I hope you are all feeling better now. I'm impressed that you got so much cleaning done. I haven't even thought about spring cleaning and have no idea if it will actually happen. I really do need to dejunk a little bit though. I need to start thinking about making room for this baby! Have fun at your flea market!!!

You poor thing! There's nothing like sick kids to make you exhausted. I hope that they get well quickly. That's crazy that they caught such interesting diseases. Yuck. I love de-junking! Our next project is to get out all of the baby clothes and get rid of anything that's stained, they never wear, or we don't like. D.I. here we come!

I'm glad that everyone is getting better. You've had a rough few weeks...I wish there was a Time Out for Women coming up soon! It would be nice to have a break!

P.S. I just found out today that I'm your new visiting teacher! Yea!
