What Am I doing?
I puked. Yeah, this week kinda sucked. It started on Tuesday when I was taking my kid for a walk to get the mail. We had just picked it up, and he saw a sticker on the ground. He pointed at it and said “Sti-” and then threw up. He didn’t seem too bothered by it, but upchucked a few more times…and then finished his sentence…”sticker!” Brought the kid home and put him to bed after a few more times letting loose. He slept for 10 hours and felt great the next day, so I figured it was just something he ate.
But in the middle of the night, Michelle started feeling sick. Uh oh. No sleep for her that night. I stayed home to nursed them back to health the next day. I went to work on Thursday, and things seemed great. I figured they had a bad smoothie, and it was all over with. WRONG! Starting around 11pm on Thursday night, my stomach started really hurting. I tried to sleep, but ended up getting sick in the middle of the night. I stayed home, it was definitely the flu. Ugh! So, here I sit, still drained from the flu, but on the upside of it all, I got to spend 2 extra days with my family this week Yay.
Dayquil saved the day on Saturday, as we had scheduled a fall favorite, our pumpkin patch day. We picked up a sweet coupon from Living Social for $15 which got us $20 in pumpkins, 4 corn maze tickets, and 2 “kinds play barn” tickets. It was a blast, and our little man got to play with his awesome cousins and pick out his very own pumpkin. We packed a lunch as well, so the 4-hour outing only cost the original $15, and we walked away with 3 awesome pumpkins. Good times all around, even if I did feel like a zombie.
