This weekend didn't end up exactly like I planned. I needed to get tons of homework done, but Friday night I spent time with the kids, planning on doing lots of homework on Saturday. Saturday I found out that I had pneumonia and I had such a headache that I tried to do my homework (in between General Conference sessions and after), but could not concentrate. It was horrible how long I was stuck on the same algebra problem! It felt like I had ear infections too and I was just achy all over. So almost nothing got done.
I prepared for an icky Sunday--glad to watch General Conference from bed at least. I planned ahead and bought a Papa Murphy's pizza Saturday night and put it in the refrigerator so we could pull it out and heat it up for dinner today. I ended up feeling quite a bit better today, but glad not to have to cook. I was even feeling well enough to drive so I drove the kids over to the temple for some pictures in between sessions. We had some time for quiet thinking also while we were there. Well, the kids took that time to play in the water in the fountain. But it was nice for me. Even though I didn't get to go inside today, I still left with peace and hope that I really needed. The short time outside the temple and hearing all the wonderful talks this weekend (and getting some of the scoop from the Priesthood session from Alex when he came back from going with his dad) has left me feeling renewed. Hopefully I will be able to sleep better tonight with no algebra nightmares. Hehe
The photos are mostly for my family. I sure love these gorgeous kids!! What a blessing to be a mother.
