Have a great week!
I couldn't bear to post on the other thread knowing it's really Monday!
We had a pretty good weekend. Birthday party that sneaked up on me because T did not bring home the invitation. Well, we found it in the truck yesterday. Anyway, did that Friday night. Shopped after the party since we were in the city. Started Christmas shopping! That was fun!
I might be the only person in America, but I am ready to skip Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas. Or perhaps I'm ready to be Canadian with Thanksgiving already over. They have something there!
Yesterday we had to run to St. Louis so T and I went to the zoo while daddy hunted deer, or at least tried. The wind has been so terrible and that makes it hard to hunt. Still hoping though! The season goes through next Tuesday.
Today we stayed home all day; worked around here. Then after bedtime T started throwing up. Grrrr!!! We've been in the bathroom twice now. I hate missing work most of all but of all the times we've missed school I am in the best place there for this one.
How in the world are we getting so sick this year? It's so frustrating. T hasn't been sick like this since he was little. I thought we were past the getting sick all the time phase.
I had to stop for a minute for the third time in the bathroom. Poor kid, I think, is afraid to get sick in bed so he can't rest yet he can't throw up. We were in the bathroom for a while and he asked why can't he sleep, he's so tired. I pulled out some towels and he's sleeping in front of my toilet. Poor kid!
Lori-Still keeping you guys in our prayers. Sounds like a tough weekend & sorry you have to go back to work today. I'm sure a day alone to rest & catch up would be welcomed about now. Glad to hear the girls are doing ok. Hugs to you. And-glad LLG came to visit too. I'm sure he was a nice distraction.
Wendi-Ugh. Sorry about T. I hope the rest of your night was quiet & he's feeling better today. I think different areas just have different bugs. So he has to get used to these ones too. At least that's my thought. But could he have developed an allergy/reaction to something? Might be worth keeping a food journal & seeing if anything is causing issues. Glad you got to the zoo yesterday. I LOVE the sloth bears there. They are so silly.
Not a ton going on here. Typical work day ahead. I had a home sales party yesterday ("Thirty-one" bags & stuff like that-anyone heard of them?) I didn't really want to go, it was at EFN's house (Ex-Friend Neighbor since I haven't talked about her in ages). We have been cordial to each other, but I didn't really want to do something social like this with her. But-the lady who is selling the bags is Calla's old preschool teacher & I Love her. It was good to go talk & I didn't realize that she got divorced over the summer & is really working hard to get some extra income now. They had one of those rotten years last year where lots of close family members died too. So just seems to be piling on for her. Her DD is in college & DS is a Sr this year. She's so wonderful, I hope things work out for her. Glad I went in the end, but it was hard for me to go. Well-better go make lunch...
Wendi, I had to chuckle at you and T going to the zoo while DH hunted. Opposite ends of the spectrum, eh? Poor T. I hope he got some rest and is feeling better today!!!
Oh, and I'm ready to skip Thanksgiving this year, too. I'm not sure why. At least it's early - next week! - so then I can decorate and get on to Christmas stuff. Hopefully I can get DH to decorate either Wed or Thurs (his days off), because after that it's going to get crazy. He still DOES work 2 am - 11 pm on Black Friday. I think they're trying to kill him. I wouldn't make it.
Lori, I was wondering if you're all back to school/work this week or if you'd take a few days off. (I wish I knew what else to say here - I just keep staring at this and not getting anywhere.) Big hugs, again. We all love you and are sorry you have to hurt.
We all went to the outlet mall yesterday. (I wanted to go to a specific store, having a sale.) Then DH wanted to head to St. Augustine and walk around there. (The outlet mall is in the outskirts of St. Augustine, so we were mostly there.) We just walked around. Got rained on a little. We thought we'd check out all the shops, but we barely set foot in any. It was still a decent day. Today we're just hanging out. No real plans.
Laura, I have a little tiny 31 bag. A mom gave it to me as a going away gift from the IN school. I was so touched! I love it, too. We use it to take snacks places with us. I'd love to have another!
Lori, enjoy eating out tonight! Hope you can stay dry. It is super cold here today. I assume you are on the front side of the front that came through here yesterday. It's nice to see the sun though.
Can you believe the lady who took over the auction database in IN from me had to call me today for help? She's living in OH now and someone else new has taken over. But this new one found out she's pregnant and it looks like someone else is going to have to do it! Crazy! Anyway, the lady who called today I really, really like so it was no big deal. I still had to go in and fix it up for the current year. It's going to be crazy for the committee though. Supposedly, they are not allowed to get new software, which they desperately need. Then they wouldn't have to worry about finding someone who can manage Access. I guess I never knew there would be so few people who know how to do that. Or at least, who know how and would volunteer for it. Big difference. :)
I have also been making lots of calls and getting lots of business done I never get to do because of working during the day. I didn't get to do everything, but I did a LOT!
Back to work tomorrow, it looks like. He's kept everything down today but isn't really eating more than crackers. We're still not going to Cubs Scouts. He emptied the dishwasher because he was feeling better, but he would do a little, then need to rest. He's so into doing chores. Do you know I haven't done dishes for two weeks?!? I wonder how long I can keep this going? :)
