Daybook~ The Puke House

For Today...May 2, 2010

Outside my window...another beautiful day. It was hot and humid yesterday, so I know the heat is coming. Even though everyone is sick in this house, I've sent them outside to enjoy the fresh air.

I am shorts and a white shirt.

I am listening to...Wilco

I am hoping and praying...that everyone is on the mend. Squirt and I are the only ones who have yet to catch this virus. It's pretty nasty, and I'm assuming we're going to catch it. I just hope it happens sooner rather than later. I am slowly introducing dry toast to the boys and praying it stays down.

From the menus planned yet beyond dry toast and bananas. I am trying to think of things that won't be gross when I puke.

The Baby so on the shit list. Yesterday he decided to grab a pen and write all over the couch. When I asked him what he might have done yesterday that I didn't like, he knew exactly what I was talking about. I guess it was dumb to ask him why he did it. Although honestly, I am more bothered by the fact that Squirt wrote on his wall in pen too. How old is he? Yes, he'll be 15 in two weeks. He had no excuse either.

To be fit and happy...I am so freaking bummed. My favorite instructor at the YMCA got a full-time job and won't be teaching Bodystep after this week. I can't explain just how much I love Bodystep. Missing two classes last week almost killed me. I am going to be so upset if I can't go this week due to illness again.

I am thankful for...the graciousness of my host and hostess yesterday. I have really learned a lesson in charity. I can't say enough nice things about this couple. If somebody's child had puked in my house, I would hope that I would be half as nice as this couple was. Even when I made a comment about hoping none of their children got sick, they just didn't care. They were only concerned about Goose. Once we were cleaned, they didn't immediately shuttle us out of their house either.

Around the house...Lance is on his way home with the bunk beds!!! The boys are going to love them. They have no idea they are coming. We'll set them up tomorrow and buy another mattress for them. By Tuesday, they should be sleeping in them. NOW...I need to find comforters and some stuff for our new play room! Actually, my goal is an appropriate sized desk and more shelves for the play room, in due time of course. NO NEW TOYS. DO YOU HEAR THAT GRANDPARENTS?

On keeping home looks so clean and smells so nice. Too bad that no matter what I do, it seems I can't get rid of the germs.

One of my favorite things...PAUL! Paul was in town this weekend. Even though the circumstances weren't ideal, sick kids and hubby, we still managed to enjoy ourselves. We didn't end up trying any new places to eat like we planned, but that's okay. At first, the kids were really upset that Brian wasn't here too, but in the end, it was nice to see them visit with just Paul. Baby Hulk and Goose made him play games and talk to them nonstop.

The airport shot at home since I couldn't take him to the airport today.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
  • sadly there aren't many plans except to make sure everyone is healthy and the house clean.
  • I am hoping to get to Bodystep by Wednesday
  • Goose's field trip with the boys on Thursday
  • and a little surprise for Brian on Friday

A picture thought I am sharing...
