Stuck at Home....and that's not bad!

My oldest has had an on and off fever for the past few days. Couple that with a truck in the repair shop and I'm stuck at home. I don't mind other than we're almost out of milk. It is nice to be forced to stay home because I am nearing my 6 week postpartum mark and getting antsy. If I wasn't stuck at home, I'd be out and about with 3 kiddos, driving myself crazy! LOL!

Rest is needed for all of us. I went to bed early last night and slept in this morning. We all did (except for hubby who had to go to work, although for once he didn't wake up BEFORE the alarm, but actually slept until the alarm went off.)

Oldest son is on ordered rest today, even though his fever broke. Daughter is "reading" a book to Baby Boy who's sleeping. I have the classical music station playing, the windows open, the lights off (it's cloudy today, so it's pretty dim in the house), and just cultivating an atmosphere of rest and peace. (Thanks Emma)
