Recovery

Sorry for the lack of meat this week on the blog...man has the flu or whatever I had kicked my butt (and every other human on the face of the earth's too). I wish I had tons of pretty pictures to show you but I am not one to really plan blog posts in advance so if you wanted to see what has been going on in my life this week, you'd see pictures of empty tissue boxes, Mucinex (life saver), rain on my windows, and lots of Ernie cuddles. I hate complaining because honestly I hate going to blogs that just complain about being sick all the time... that's why I tried to stay off social media because my tweets would have been me saying goodbye forever since I was basically on my death bed haha. But I am feeling GOOD and back at work, the sun is shining, Jon comes back from business this afternoon. I couldn't be more excited to do a whole lot of nothing this weekend (I mean that is what our weekends normally consist of but hey).

Last weekend, well Thursday-Tuesday Jon went home to Cleveland to visit family and I had a huge list of stuff to get done. Nothing major but just piddle paddly stuff around the house, different crafts, stuff I had been putting off. My husband travels for work during the week but I am never alone on the weekends so I wanted to jam pack the days so I wasn't bored. Luckily I had Friday night and Saturday during the day before the sickness of 2013 hit. I had a hot date with my favorite munchkin and we took advantage of free movie channels for the time being. 


Oh and this post will be the Ernie show since Jon has been gone, I just take pics of Ernie all day haha



Ever since we took Christmas down on New Years, the house has seemed naked to me. I have been dying to get some Valentine's Day decor up and was excited to get my craft on. I really love February because we got married in February (5th), got Ernie in February, Valentine's Day... and to add some cheese, our last name is Hart so there are hearts everywhere. I don't go overboard with decor but I want to feel the love. A girlfriend came over for craft day and we made these adorable wreaths. I saw them while searching on Pinterest (duh) and when I clicked on the site, it was in a language I couldn't decipher, so sorry for the lack of credit. My door is naked without a themed holiday wreath and I am trying to think of what I could do after Valentine's Day? Is it too soon for Easter?





I barely moved a muscle after the sickness hit, except to get snacks, take baths, and let Ernie out. I tweeted about it earlier this week but seriously I don't know what I would do without my little man. It's like he knew I was sick and never begged to play ball (which if you know him is HUGE) and stayed cuddled by my side for days. I cried many tears this weekend both of pure sickness frustration and realizing how much I love Mr. Ernie. Hey if Jon couldn't be there to take care of me, Ernie was my next best thing. I assumed I was nearing my death so I slept at my parents house one night so I didn't have to die alone...luckily the good Lord had different plans for me. I took 2 days off of work and slept, ate more snacks, used another box of tissues, and ate Mucinex like it was Reeses Pieces. And on Tuesday morning, I was so wrecked that I sobbed when I woke up knowing Jon was coming home. Why am I so lame?! Luckily it rained all day so when he got home, we ate Chick Fila, showered and went back to bed. I know I am not helpless without Jonny but I missed him so stinkin' much. 


Oh and the rain... Ernie was such a weenie and didn't want to go out there to pee. I had to shove his cute little tail-less booty and he was so sad coming in soaking wet. 




My dear dear husband chose to leave at 5am on Thursday morning for a business trip to spend time with his desperate wife instead of going the night before. So unfortunately last night I was hubby-less but kind of fortunate because I got to catch up on Pretty Little Liars (because it would be wrong to make Jon watch it, right?). And on that note, I am SO confused by last night's episode. I can't keep track of everything that has happened! Cliff notes anyone? But here I am, on the road to recovery... feels weird to be wearing makeup.


Can you tell this is my, I can finally breathe and am pissed off I already had this funk 8 weeks ago face? With awesome rain soaked hair!


We are dog sitting Miss Daisy (white Scottie) for the weekend... I was having fun making them turn their heads from side to side, "do you wannaaaaaa?"

I told ya, Ernie is a cuddle monster and can't get close enough to me, especially in the cold. I am convinced he is part gorilla in this pic. Those little lips kill me!


In other Hart family randoms...

  • I am having the hardest time coming up with a 2 year wedding anniversary gift for Jon. The traditional theme is cotton and I don't want to do something big, just cute. I did buy him some Nike workout shorts but I doubt there is 1% of cotton in those shiny things. Last year for paper, I had boudoir pictures taken and made into a gorgeous leather bound book for him... never will I be able to top that!
  • Jon and a buddy are doing a healthy weight loss competition and I am nervous that I have to start cooking super healthy. I don't cook like Paula Deen but if something calls for cream cheese, I will use it (I am just smart about it). Jon requires meat at every meal (protein king)... so do y'all have any good healthy recipes to share?

It's Sooo Fluffy! said...

So glad you're feeling better! I'm also so glad Ernie was there for you this weekend. I wasn't sick on Sunday BUT I was incredibly lazy. It was BAD. Brody cuddled with me the entire time :) Those pups are the best kids ever huh?

Glad you are feeling better!

For Cotton you could get a tshirt made or new 800 count egyptian cotton sheets. Just a thought.

So glad you are feeling better! That nasty stuff is really making it's rounds this year. You could always make a St Patricks Day wreath. I think that one's between Valentines and Easter!!

I kinda think everyone in America is sick right now. Most of my family got it....I barely made it out of Christmas alive. Fingers crossed it doesn't hit me now!

Celeste Aslanyants said...

Ugh, you poor thing! I can't imagine being sick and Arsen being out of town...how awful! I'm so glad you had little Ernie to keep you company. Isn't it cute how they just seem to know you need a little extra love? I swear since I've been pregnant Addie has been such a good cuddle buddy...and she is normally not one to be attached to me! Sweet pups :)

Jenna DeSantis said...

Love the wreath and love the dog :-) Your blog is so cute. You are so crafty! A wreath with hearts is something I've never thought of, yet I love both!

Awww I love the Ernie pics! I'm glad you're feeling better. We have a wheaten Scottie and a black Scottie and we love getting them to tilt their little heads!

Lauren said...

Glad you are feeling better!! Also I loooove making the pups head turn asking the same thing and Tag hates going out in the rain too. But really who loves going out in crummy weather?

Abbey said...

Glad your feeling better. Super cute wreath!

Sarah said...

Glad you are feeling better! I just know that dogs can sense when we are sick...they are the best nurses!
Floyd will not go in the rain either, I had to shove him outside this morning and force him to go in the rain.

As far as recipes, we really like stuffed peppers, turkey burgers, or crockpot meals. The other night I did this recipe and it turned out well and made a lot: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Spicy-Beans-with-Turkey-Sausage

Aww, I'm glad you're getting better!! The flu is the worst!! I'm terrified for the next time I get it! I just got a cold for the first time since 2010 and I STILL have the cough. I got the cold the week of Thanksgiving! Yikes!!
As for recipes, I wish I could help you. But pasta is a staple in about 80% of the meals I cook in this house, so I'm not much help! Lol!! :D

Amanda said...

Your hair has gotten SOOO long! It's insane :) But I love it. I just got mine trimmed this week, but it definitely needed it since it had been so long since last time. Anddd I just wish that we lived closer together. That's all! Happy weekend, BBFF

Chelsea said...

Aww cold/flu stuff is the worst :( glad you're feeling better and that Ernie was there to keep you company!

I haven't caught up on PLL yet but I'm about to!!

KRISTIN said...

So glad you are starting to feel better and even more glad that Mr. E is there to take care of you! xo.

Katie McKenzie said...

Glad you are feeling better! I try to cook healthy at our house too, but it is not always easy! My husband is a big meat eater too! I wanted to find a way to make BBQ for healthy because I can choose the meat and how much fat is in it. Here is the recipe for my homemade BBQ and pair with a veggie and then you are good to go! http://godslittlegrace.blogspot.com/2012/11/the-best-homemade-bbq.html

Enjoy!

You are a crafting beast! I am so glad you are on the mend. The junk funk has hit our house and the kid has had it for a week!
