What We've Been Up To
The day after Christmas, we woke up to one miserably sick Maddie Bear. The only thing the poor girl wanted to do was sit on Mumma's lap and snuggle. I gladly obliged, and there we sat for two whole days...she even slept on me one night.
Turns out she had a double ear infection and probably pneumonia as well.
Thankfully, the miracle of modern medicine lent a hand in the form of antibiotics, and Madeline was back to her cheery self pretty quickly. Huzzah!
Off to New York we galloped to celebrate Christmas with Eric's side of the family.
Madeline got to spend some quality time with Nana and Poppy while Mumma and Dada spent a day in the city touring a cheese cave with Kevin, drinking beer, and viewing high-end furniture with Carol. Sigh...what a different life Madeline would lead if we lived in New York.
When we returned to Massachusetts, we got back to our busy schedule of eating and lounging on the couch. Eric and I barely managed to stay awake to usher in 2012. (I took a power nap at 10:30. It's the wine's fault.)
On New Year's Day, we brought Madeline to the Boston Children's Museum and watched her run around the place like a lunatic.
Finally, we spent our last day of vacation cleaning and organizing the house from top to bottom. I feel so much better now that the house is de-cluttered and clean. Hopefully it stays this way for a while.
And now....now it's back to work....and it's cold....and Christmas is over. (Cue Eeyore voice.)
