I awoke sick on the 4Th. Attempted to get moving and did manage to walk down the street and sit in a chair in anticipation of the parade, but couldn't wait until it started. Had to return home to be sick again. Climbed into bed and slept until they woke me up after the parade was over and the food was almost ready to eat. It looked like they were all enjoying it and I tried to nibble a bit, but found it very unappetizing. I visited with them until they all left to go and give the little ones a nap and then I went back to sleep and slept the rest of the afternoon.
When the arrived back for the bonfire, s'mores making time I was feeling somewhat better but sure didn't want to eat any s'mores. Fireworks were able to be seen from our back yard again this year, but Drew was scared to death of them and kept crying and yelling 'go in Mema's house'............so Drew and I came inside and watched the movie 'Happy Feet' ONE MORE TIME! After the fireworks everyone left and I went to bed and slept all night. Today is the first day I feel really good.
I hope the rest of you enjoyed the Fourth............it was pretty much of a blur for me!
