Well, so much for all my promised updates of freshly-painted rooms, holiday craft projects, and general family activities. I’ve spent the past several days dealing with a nasty tummy bug that has now worked it’s way through 5 of the 9 of us. It is my hope and prayer that the 4 who didn’t get it won’t get it–ever!
To add to the fun, Jeremy was gone all week on business in Austin and L.A., so I got to deal with sick kids alone, which was especially fun when I was sick myself…yuck! It started Thursday when I had everyone up bright and early. Three of the kids had dental appointments that morning, and one had an appointment with an allergy specialist later that afternoon. Yep, you guessed it…just as we pulled into the parking lot at the dentist, Josiah threw up. Fun. Nothing like calling the dentist to cancel 3 appointments, telling the receptionist that you’re sitting in their parking lot with a kid who is barfing.
The rest of us were fine until Saturday. Then Joanna started (as we were leaving Jon’s basketball game in the car, of course…why is it that kids always seem to get sick when they’re in the car?), followed by Joseph, Jeremiah, and finally me within the next several hours. Let’s just say we were a pretty miserable bunch! Thankfully, the worst of it didn’t last more than about 12 hours. Thankfully!!!
So, if you were wondering why I’m so late on updating any of the projects I’ve been posting about, know you know why. And now you also probably wish you didn’t!
