Last week was the
Well, maybe not ever. But it was definitely the worst week I can remember having in a long, long time.
Somebody in our family had either the stomach bug, an ear infection, or strep throat e v e r y day of the week. Which means there was throw up most nights. Screaming children most nights. A crying mommy some nights. And exhausted parents every night. And day.
It also means we were stuck in the house e v e r y day of the week. Which makes me crazy.
It also means I did about 88 loads of laundry consisting of germy blankets and vomit-covered stuffed animals.
It also means I used a whole can of Lysol.
It also means we were ever-so-grateful when my mother-in-law offered to take the kids overnight Saturday night--even when she knew they were sleeping horribly. Thank the Lord (and G-mom) for giving us a freaking break! Matt earned the Best Husband Award by joining me in a Twilight-a-thon all day Saturday. We were lazy, and it was awesome.
It also means I lost two pounds. I'm neverrr the person who loses weight while I'm sick! So that was cool.
Oh yeah--another pretty cool thing happened last week.
My sister finallyyy had her baby! Meet my dear nephew, Philip Michael:
Anyways, here's to a better week this time around! A week without sickness! A week full of play-dates! A week where I get to meet my nephew!
It's gonna be good. :)
