Our Mini Linky Party | Week 163

Ohhhh man!

Adam and I have both been down for the count this week and the flu is hitting us hard! 

I had to make a trip to the ER this week as well, which sucked since Adam had to miss work and go with me. But I am not getting worse, so that is good. He is still not feeling well, and we are both struggling to get through the day not feeling healthy at all. I wonder if this is that terrible flu that has been going around and everyone else has already dealt with, or if we caught something coming back from our trip to New Orleans. Either way, I will just be happy when we are both feeling better!

This weekend we will be trying to recover while also trying to get through the work day...at a slower pace. Being sick and having to work is as close to my own personal hell as it gets. But I am very thankful that I have the flexibility to be able to put work down and resume it later on when needed, since I don't have a strict schedule like Adam does. I am hoping we will have some normalcy after this weekend, and that we will both be feeling better in no time. 

Check out the features from this week:

DIY Hairpin Floral Bench from At Home with Ashley

Healthy Butternut Squash Soup from Dizzy Busy and Hungry

  1. Hi Cathy....so sorry to hear that you and Adam were so sick. Hope you are starting to feel better now. This is my first time to your party (I think!) Thanks so much for hosting. Today I shared three posts: one on playing Olympics with your kids, one on conquering a pile of undone laundry and one about setting up a wedding registry for newly engaged couples. Have a wonderful, peaceful weekend. Sinea ♥

  2. Thank you for being so supportive of other bloggers. I think parties are the best social media strategy around!! I linked my Broasted Chicken, Fish and Chips and my Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili for that down home comfort meal. I hope you enjoy them. Have a happy week! #OverTheMoon #WWBlogHop #ThursdayFavoriteThings
