We finished Little House in the Big Woods a week ago and, with cool enough weather to start a fire in the fireplace (a cool 66* outside), the girls and I enjoyed roasted hot dogs for dinner. We then ceremoniously (or not so much) destroyed our toilet paper log cabin by throwing it piece by piece in the fire as well. Due to the high humidity the walls were starting to collapse and it wasn't going to last much longer.
So the plan was to start a new week with a new book, Little House on the Prairie. But as life happens I ended up getting sick. The virus and head cold I ended up with wiped me out and school was cancelled for the week. Thankfully the timing of my sickness was perfect. My husband doesn't have classes for two weeks due to a module, Good Friday and other circumstances so he was "free" this week. He and my mother-in-law graciously served me as I laid around for four days with little ability to do much else. They took care of the girls, prepared meals and washed dishes. All that to say, we didn't start our book as planned.
