Surgery for my inguinal hernia was postponed due to having a fever.  I finally had the surgery on Feb. 8.  I thought I might bounce back as quickly as my husband did from his knee surgery.  Not so.  Abdominal surgery isn't the same.  Coughing is almost impossible and sneezing is a killer!

Here we are trying to get back into the swing of homeschool with 10yo.  She is totally into National Geographic's Animal Jam which has its pros and cons.  She would rather spend her entire day playing the game BUT her spelling is improving.
