Well, we are in the midst of surviving our second family illness...the STOMACH BUG!!! It all started Tuesday night when Eric went to check on Eli before bed and discovered a nursery full of puke. It was everywhere, and we didn't hear a thing, poor guy. We assume it had only been about ten minutes prior because I had checked on him. So, we cleaned him up, set up the pack 'n play, and assumed he had had too much milk. Fast forward five minutes and we are repeating ourselves. After puking eleven times in an hour, we went to the hospital.

After two hours of waiting and no more puking, the nurse released us. Luckily Eli fell asleep on the way home, unluckily he awoke as soon as we walked in. Finally, at 3:30 am he was down for the night. So, I got about an hour and a half of sleep before having to go to work. After the show I was feeling sick, so I left early, came home and went to bed...where I stayed for the next 21 hours. Eric played with Eli who was feeling much better, and took care of me.

Now my poor hubby is sick. I was feeling better by noon today, and I have disinfected the entire house: rugs, sheets, door knobs, light switches, lamps, blinds, pillows, extra blankets, stuffed animals, computers, cell phones, refrigerator, remotes, towels...EVERYTHING!!

This bug is fast, furious and down right gross...please pray for a speedy recovery!!

And when I've had a particularly rough day, I always like to look back. Here is my boy a year ago...oh how time flies!!


  1. Our household had this bug about a month ago, and I most defiantly agree that it is fast & furious! Hope you guys get well soon!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
