Lately...

Bronchitis always hits me so weird. Instead of a wicked cough, it just knocks me out. Out cold. It's like my head and chest become filled with sand, and my heavy body demands to be horizontal at all times.
Every time I get diagnosed with bronchitis, I end up sleeping like 18 hours straight. It's really a strange feeling...I don't get up to go to the bathroom, eat, drink, anything. I just conk out.
So even after resting most the weekend, I still slept from Sunday afternoon through late Monday night. I just completely missed Monday- day.

God bless my husband!

Seriously, I don't brag on him a lot here, (and he doesn't even read this regularly ;) ) but he has been Man of the Year lately. 
He tackled all things home and kids while I was in Portland, and then again for several days this weekend and week, he's done EVERYTHING. All the grocery shopping, the laundry, the meals, the dishes, getting the kids to and fro...all of it.

I stumbled out of the bedroom last night, trying to orient myself, and was beyond amazed to see everything clean and orderly, kids asleep and uniforms for the next day all laid out.
I mean, what would I do without him???  I'm feeling so thankful for him lately.


I'm upright this afternoon and actually even managed to shower (and my family members shout "hooray!") and run the vacuum and fold a load of laundry, but that's about all I've got in me =). Laying on the couch with the laptop however is doable =).
Perfect time to catch up on posting some pics of our days here recently...

Sister decided to keep David company while he was making dinner, so she set up a little writing station in the kitchen...




The kids are learning about Nomads at school, and one project we had to complete at home was making a tent.
Paper plates, straws, and paper for the win!




Brother playing out in the hallway with a dozen ladies =)...





David's parents sent these fun build-able straws back to Kuwait with me for the kids, they've had so much fun playing with them...








Their class won "best dressed" and earned a uniform-free day at school the other week. Our kids did not mess around with this kinda freedom, and went in full on costumes!
Brother was Boba Fett (Star Wars) and Sister was Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon).
They were SO excited to go to school like this!



My In - laws also sent some zen coloring books back with me, and one evening I was coloring, and Sister joined me on my picture, then David and Brother started their own. We ended up coloring for over 30 minutes, and it was really peaceful!!



...of course when it was time to finish and go to bed, the peaceful time gave way to whining and complaining...but it was nice while it lasted =)



The weather in Kuwait is just so perfect in November. Still warm, but a light breeze in the evenings. 
The other night we decided to go out to eat and play a bit...




(I love how Brother is winking in this one!)



We walked around the paths and ended up at a fun playground...







We've done some painting with the neighbor kids...




Brother and I played Kids Scrabble...



And we've enjoyed beautiful sunsets...



And that about wraps up life lately around here =).
