Weekend Update

Sick. Sick. Sick. Seriously, I haven’t been so sick in a long time. Blech. Pack your head full of cement and you’ll know how I feel. The best part was, DH got sick too- but with the stomach flu. Yippe! The kids have basically had the run of the place- what with both of us down. You can imagine our laundry room right about now. Yeah.

We missed Jeffrey’s soccer game yesterday- somehow, I don’t think they would have liked us to show up with our barf-bucket and my bottle of Ny-Quil. Beanie, conveniently, had a bye.

I just looked out the back window, to see Jeffrey, butt-naked, on the swing-set trapeze. One moment please….

Ok then.

If you’re looking for a good cold medicine, I highly recommend Alka Selzer cold and flu. Totally works, doesn’t taste nasty like Thera-Flu, and can be drank hot or cold. That, and you get to sing the “plop-plop, fizz-fizz” song in your congested head while you wait for the little tablets to dissolve.

“Oust” does wonders at getting rid of sick smell. Just thought you might like to know.

It’s finally starting to get cold here. We had our first fire of the year yesterday- which entailed Beanie flipping the switch on the wall and us all ooh-ing and aw-ing as the fire burst forth in our gas fireplace. Easy? Yup. This is my first gas fireplace, and I think something might be lost in translation. But you can’t beat if for easy.

  1. High’s in the low 90′s, (but with most of the day hanging out around 78 degrees.) OVERNIGHT lows in the 60′s. We have yet to use our fireplace :)

    Come here. You know you want to.

  2. Ah Oust! Thanks for the pointer on that.

    I really, really, hate being sick. Yipes. And both of you at once.

    I wish you a quick reprieve.

    I loved your lightbulb entry. Thank you for that too!

    October will be here before you know it. I love that you have an idea of what might be ailing him. Knowledge is half the battle. SID, is confusing. Hold your ground, and good luck!

  3. Sorry you were sick. My allergies went into full gear, but I didn’t mind because it snowed on the Rockies last night and left a beautiful scenery for Sunday morning coffee on the back porch! I love it here!!

  4. I’m SO sorry! I echo Melissa and hope that next week is not more of the fun you’ve got going now, only with smaller people who don’t make it to the bathroom! Feel better!
