we kicked off january 2020 fighting a stupid nasty cough and cold. there were a lot of fluids and drugs and napping people. it was meh. eventually we were all on the mend and regular old life resumed. lots of lounging around. arts and crafts. games. you know. randomness. for christmas, my mom got me […]
december 2019 miscellany.
firstly. let me go ahead and throw this out there. this post is disorganized and all over the place. i did my best to group like activities and such. but mostly, it’s just 100% random. but that’s sort of how our december was, i suppose. our first order of business in december was procuring a […]
carlsbad-ish camping miscellany.
this is the post about our two weeks in carlsbad, when we weren’t exploring nearby national parks. but, before that, our trip from big bend to where we were staying near carlsbad was over 5 hours, so we broke it up with a layover at the fort stockton, texas walmart. decidedly less cool than big […]
west virginia. mountain mama.
the first leg of the official official lidbom rambling road show was to a little spot in west virginia, about ten minutes north of charleston. we arrived late at night and had to navigate some super windy, dark, narrow country roads. but we survived. this was what we were dealing with, only in daylight. and […]
charleston. doctors and beaches.
ok. i’m going to attempt to get this blog up to date. starting with last monday and tuesday. in charleston. i left off with a miserable annababy. well, she wasn’t getting any better. high fever. symptoms very similar to hazel’s when she had the UTI at christmas. she was ultra miserable. we found a pediatrician […]
a rocky start.
upon returning from our super fun aquarium adventure, Anna starting complaining about some stomach pain. we got her all snuggled up on the couch and sort of assumed it was just travel and sedentary life induced constipation. she is a terrible sick person. while she was out of commission and Hazel napped, I […]
adventures in misdiagnosis.
ugh. on the monday before christmas, hazel had a fever. we gave her some ibuprofen. and crossed our fingers that whatever it was would be easy, quick and not contagious. before she went to bed, her fever had come down and we thought it was just a fluke. hahahah. then, at 1:30 am, there was […]
belated (mostly instagrams) march post.
beware: this post contains 45 pictures from the lid kid month of march. we kicked off march with derek and isaac heading out of town to a wedding, so i just had the girls. which meant anna watched a lot of frozen and slept in the bed with me and dressed like a princess and […]
crazy kidney week.
so. well. we had a little excitement last week. on sunday night, i started to feel a little blah. then, that evening my lower back started to hurt. a lot. i hit up a heating pad and some baths and nothing was touching it. then, a fever rolled onto the scene. around 2 or so, […]
On Friday, Ike got a nasty cough. It’s made for some rough nights. And then he has these episodes where he coughs violently for a few minutes and then vomits for his grand finale. So there’s been a lot of steam cleaning and laundry. Then this morning, annababy woke up coughing like a smoker, and […]
