  1. I had bronchitis in June. It was absolutely NO fun. Glad you're all feeling better!

  2. I pray you start feeling better soon. Our week has been a nightmare. Three out of four kids have ear infections. They all had a temp for five days (each reaching 105 degrees). Things are finally starting to look up! Glorious day here, 65 degrees! Feel better!!!

  3. Wishing you better health. Bronchitis is so yucky - I truly know.

  4. I love when you do by the numbers. I need to put a post like this together!

    You still have 3 more books to complete before November! I don't know how you are doing it! But of luck.

  5. Hey Carrie-I am lifting up a prayer for your families health and for it stay! It was fun running into last week.-Jen

  6. Hoping everyone stays healthy for you through the rest of October! You've been busy, that's for sure. I had too many tomatoes freeze in my garden too--it came too soon!

  7. That's a lot of number crunching!

    Hope you are all on the mend and some of your numbers go down next month!

    Have a great rest of the week!
