Super Saturday

I realize my blog has been extremely boring, and just many words about puke. Well, I am happy to say that all is well. We are all WELL. Life is back to normal today.

I was at a most exciting photography workshop on Thursday in Vancouver. And it really opened my eyes, and the information, and knowledge I took from it. Amazing. The very night, I actually started implementing my plans. I started using that info to help my workflow.

So, that is a behind the scene look at the past week. It was full of lows, and a lot of highs too.

We are making many discoveries this week, and plan on making perhaps major change in our life. Just making sure our plan will work. Top secret right now.

Well, I got to go. Mom in Law just walked in with a boat load of scratch and wins! Time to see if we won something good!

Happy Saturday!

I had it too. Yesterday.

Yesterday, all of the puke caught up with me. And I too puked. Just one, and really awful. Today, I am feeling on the mend.

Please puke. Please stop. I cannot have any more sickness around here.

Spoke too soon.

And then, my big boy called me from school today. He said his tummy was not feeling good. So, I picked him up, and the two others a bit early. And yes, he did throw up. Poor guy. That is a second go-round for him too.

Now, that is all six that have had it. Be gone tummy bug. BE gone!

Normal again.

Everybody is back to normal, like nothing ever happened around here. Except we washed about 6 extra loads of laundry this weekend. And A LOT of extra cleaning due to the germ factor. I woke up this morning, and thought how could this weekend be over already. I already want a weekend back!

Happy Monday!

Crackers and Apple Juice. And, Baked Potato Chips.

Well, no more throw up/puke/vomit. Everybody seems to be recovering quite nicely.

I am very thankful for this! Tonight, chicken noodle soup for the troupes and some white bagel.

I love this!

Shook me all night long...

Well, now with Claire and Courtney now sick, that means all six of the kids have had this. Since before Christmas to now. Not a good way to end last year, and not a great way to start the year off.

The laundry has been chugging all night long. I cannot sleep. I just hope and pray Cliff and I stay healthy.

I am supposed to run tomorrow. I had dreams of going to bed early. Here it is 1:12 in the morning. I somehow think I will be rather sleep deprived again.

I hope they both feel better tomorrow. And, hopefully we can catch up on the insane amounts of laundry.


And two more

Well, Claire got sick tonight, and then poor Courtney. Her very first time throwing up.

I feel so bad for them both. This will be all of us now, except for Cliff. He hardly pukes! How does he do it?!

I sure hope I don't get it. Especially because I kissed them all good night, and well, Courtney puts her fingers in my mouth.

Well, I thought Caroline was getting better, but she drank water this morning. And well, you can guess. She got sick again. Poor little girl. I hope today she starts feeling better.

This morning. there was a Michael Jackson marathon on Much, and the kids were listening and enjoying. Reminds me of when I was little! I LOVED his music. Still do actually. I have many of his songs in my ipod.

Well, the sun is out and we are off to school. I was hoping to walk #500in2010. But Caroline isn't up for a walk, so I guess we drive again. I will try for a run tomorrow evening.

I got to bed before 1:00 a.m. last night, and stayed in bed until 7:25 and I feel like a new woman. Seriously, I was getting a bit sleep deprived after the night before.

So, off to school we go!

Yesterday was one of my most awful days I would have to say. I bet if I looked back at my blog, I would find many other posts like that.

It was just a bad day. I don't think I would have won Mother of the Year award.

Now, we have more puke. Caroline this time. Needless to say, I am exhausted today. I have zero energy.

I am just thankful the sun is out, and it is a brand new day. I am hoping we are at the tail end of puke. So far since Christmas, it was me feeling brutal, Cameron, Carly. Catie, then Catie last week again. And now Caroline. Poor bubs.

She says...

Caroline, up, open, locked. Catie. Buddy. And the usual Momma, Daddy. Nonna, Pappa. Nannie. Milk.

Daily the words are flying out of her mouth! Phew. We were starting to get a bit worried about Courtney. She is proving us wrong now! We knew you would.

So exciting!! She is growing and changing so much!

Wet, and now saying every word she knows over and over and over. So good! So happy.
