The LONG, long weekend...

Ryan organized the kids to go for an overnight Saturday night at their grandparents house. It was such a nice treat and a great surprise! We had such a relaxing evening. Went for dinner then headed to a movie. We couldn't actually recall the last time we had a date night at the movies. It was so nice and relaxing. MUCH NEEDED! We saw, Bridesmaids. For those who haven't seen it and need a good laugh, even Ryan said, he hadn't laughed like that in a while.
We had a great night, and the kids weren't home till after noon the next day...so sleeping in was on the agenda! Until I woke up sooo sick. I thought at first it was a round of good old morning sickness. But with how lethargic, achy and pukey I was...the flu had hit. This thing swept through our house with a vengeance. It began with Si last week. It lasted one night and was gone. We thought we were safe; as almost a week later and no sign of it anywhere else. Until Sunday morning! By Sunday evening, Kai was puking, not even keeping water down. And then...bedtime hit Ryan hard, and his turn began.
Thank goodness today is a holiday! We are all lazying around, recuperating. Hope this is the last of it! I guess all it took was a day of rest for my body to let its guard down...and bring on the flu.

Ryan was supposed to compete in a Sprint Triathlon today; obviously that didn't happen. Hes a bit bummed, but cant do anything about it. There are more to be had when he is healthy and strong! This flu literally makes your joints so achy that walking up the stairs is not only exhausting, it physically hurts. I cant imaging him pulling himself through a swim, then bike and run. Not today. Next time love!

Anyways, on to the week!
I blogged on this the other day; but am really curious as to if others do it and if so what are their secrets!? Couponing! I am so fascinated by this and am looking to attempt it. I have always assumed there are guidelines at the grocery stores that you cant mix coupons etc...but this doesn't seem the case!? Or is it the case in Canada and not the US? I have no clue! Please fill me in if you know...or if you happen to be as curious as me, maybe we can help each other out! I am determined to start this. I have heard that once you save the first time, you get hooked; lets see how this goes!

Baby update.
15 weeks!! Where does the time go. I am getting through the awkward feeling months and beginning to accept and love the bump that is forming and not just feel bloated and "fat." There is a bump; The boobs are growing [not sure I am a huge fan of this side affect ;-) ]; and my energy levels (other than this weekend) are growing! Loving the second trimester so far.

Baby's now the size of a naval orange!Continuing the march toward normal proportions, baby's legs now out-measure his arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably can't feel the movements just yet.

A little humour in the "what not to say to a pregnant women department." However, my one suggestion...never make a comment to someone about their "baby bump" unless you are 100% sure they are pregnant. You may find yourself in a very awkward position; i have heard some great (well, maybe not so great) stories.
Happy Monday!
