Bah Humbug!!

It's been an interesting 96 hours around here, and this picture pretty much sums up the way Eli and I feel about it.  Lets review; shall we?

Friday: Eric called me at work to say that he was feeling bad, and  Eli had sores all over his mouth and wouldn't stop crying. I called the doctor to set up a sick visit thinking we dealing with strep or thrush, then I finished my interviews and rushed home.  On my way there Eric called to tell me that Ellie was throwing up. 
So, I left Eric home to rest since he was sick while I loaded up both kids and headed to the doctor.  One tearful hour later we found out that we were dealing with two separate viruses.  LOVELY. On the way home I stopped at the Dollar Store for essentials like soup, Pedialite (sorry but I can't spell), and crackers.  The rest of the day was spent snuggling and taking care of sickies.

Saturday: Everyone was whiney, but appeared to be in better spirits, so I talked Eric into getting me out of the house for dinner and Wal Mart run.  On the way home we pushed our luck and looked at lights for all of 30 minutes.  We stayed up to watch a movie at which point I started feeling sick.  I thought it was from the Mexican food.  I was wrong!!  I had the bug too.  I'll spare you the details, but I spent some time getting acquainted with the toilet. Ha!

Sunday: Needless to say, we missed church on Sunday in fear of contaminating the entire congregation.  Luckily, both kids were in good spirits and seemed to be on the mend.  I wasn't up to par, so I rested on the couch and let them play. It wasn't awful...until midnight.  That's when Eli got sick with the stomach bug.  

Monday: So here I am, exhausted but glad this is behind us.  I was up until four this morning taking care of Eli, so Eric took Ellie to daycare so that we could sleep.  The only problem is that Eli woke up at 8:00 sharp singing Christmas carols.  He's better, but still puny.  We're snuggling, watching movies, and sneaking in a nap while Ellie and Daddy are gone.

To you, Stomach Bug, I say, "BAH HUMBUG!!!"


  1. Yuck :( Bryar and I had this a week ago. Thankfully it skipped the others and passed super quick. I hope you guys feel better 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
