Huzzah! The Chappy’s fever has finally broken, Pixie’s thumb is almost back to normal, and Momma enjoys a large mug of coffee and soy eggnog with breakfast. Pretend it is an eggnog latte. It’s not, but I’m cheap and it’s close enough.
Even better, today the menfolk return from the hunt!
They return in the afternoon sore, tired, and without meat, but in good spirits. The next day will see Hubbles back to work, so it’s not much of a reprieve from a stressful weekend (and thank goodness Grandma was there for so much of it!), but them’s the breaks. The kids were doing much better, which is pretty much the most I can ask for.
Oh, and cake. I can ask for cake too, right?
