What A Week!

I haven't really been on a computer much at all this week. After Lexi's birthday party, it seems we all caught some cooties from someone. Lilly and Lexi both have runny noses and flemmy coughs, and I've had sneezes, coughs, fever, swollen glands, scratchy throat, body ache, I can't do anything kind of sickness. Fun eh? Better yet, after holding off going to his brother's house for a couple days, Luke finally goes up there today, while we are still all sick! Seriously? I barely acknowledged him when he left this morning, do you really think it's wise to leave me alone with 2 toddlers all day. Lexi threw up last night from coughing, and I popped some Tylenol PM just so I could sleep. It's now 3:30 in the afternoon, and I haven't even gotten a phone call to check up on us. I have about 2 1/2 hours this morning that I don't remember. I'm pretty sure I passed out on the couch, and the girls lunch consisted of cookies, chips, and popcorn. And he may not be sick, but he is probably carrying germs, and his brother has a 2 month old baby. If I was Crystal, I would have kicked Luke right out the door. I hate it when people are sick and then come over. I'm pretty sure that we probably didn't even get it from the birthday party, but from Kendra, because even though her nose was draining like the Niagara, Chelsea insists that she is over her sickness and not contagious. Ugh... I hate being sick.

I give up on trying to reason with him. I have dishes all over the stove, countertop, and floor. The platters from the birthday party still haven't been washed. I have two baskets of laundry that have been sitting upstairs all week that need brought down, and the only reason a load of laundry was done yesterday is because the bag with cloth diapers and cloth wipes was full and needed washed. And I'm the one that took them upstairs, put them in the washer, and hung them on the line to dry! I have popcorn and cereal all over the floor, and after I'm done with venting on this post, I'll probably pop some Tylenol PM that I have been trying to avoid all day because I know I'll pass out from it, because I feel that crappy. We still need to go grocery shopping too...

On top of that, I got a killer deal on some wool pea coats, and ordered a size medium, only to have them come in and be a bit tight in the shoulders. I bought them with the intention of losing a few pounds and fitting into them nicely, but who loses weight in the shoulders? I'll probably never fit into them...

I got in my supplies to make some lotions and soaps. I used my little food processor to blend up some avocado lotion. It's nice...but I don't have anything to put the lotion in right now except empty baby food jars.

Oh...and the best part of the day. We got a sex offender notification in the mail, about someone who lives right next door. Apparently 3 years ago he got tagged with gross sexual imposition with a victim under 13, and rape! Just what I need with 2 little girls running around the house. Time to go lube up the guns, because if he steps foot on my property, that will be the last step he takes!

I'll update with party pictures and stuff whenever I can get Luke to do the pictures...

  1. I love you and I'm sorry you're sick. I know how much it sucks to be sick and have a sick kid to take care of.
