First Days & Sick Days

My poor little mini-munchkin is sick. Not just "kinda sick" No... seriously sick, maybe a trip to the hospital is in our future. She is miserable. I hate how helpless I feel. She has a stomach bug that won't go away. Poor dear can't keep anything down, not even water. Her little blood shot eyes are killing me :( Luckily she has only shared her virus with me, (i'm not near as sick as her. Can a mom really get a sick day anyway?) the munchkin and my hubby are still feeling fine. I hope they don't get this, that's all I need: A sick whiny husband and 2 barfing kids. FUN! Pray i keep my sanity if it reaches that level.

The house is coming together, finally! Once we haul all the empty boxes out of the dinning room this place should look great. Still haven't seen any scorpion or rattlesnakes. (THANK GOODNESS!) I am preparing myself though, if I see one and start screaming there will be no hope of the kids feeling comfortable here. Why do we women have to always be so strong??

On a happier note, the munchkin is currently at his first day of all day kindergarten. I am so proud of him, he showed no fear, no hesitation... Just marched on in there with his head up. I wish I had that kind of confidence all the time. It looks like he'll fit in just fine, and since he found out there are other boys in his class who love "Star Wars" he was happy.

The mini-munchkin and I just finished lunch, she actually kept the scrambled eggs down, so maybe there is hope for a recovery :) But, now she is napping, the house is clean, laundry is going, and I miss my little man. I thought I would enjoy the quiet, nope. It's too quiet without him running down the hallway yielding his Light Saber.

Also on the subject of "firsts." Today my hubby started his new job. He's called twice, which means he is bored and they don't have too much for him to do just yet. He never calls home unless there's nothing to do, so I hope for his workaholic self that he finds something to do. I, personally, LOVE days when I have nothing to do. But, then again... It never happens :)

OK I think I have jibber jabbered enough for now, hope i didn't bore you too much. And have a great week everyone!

Ta Ta for now

I hope you and your daughter are feeling better soon. That sounds awful...and a little scary.

I'm glad your son was off to a good start. You have my sympathies. I'm dreading next year when Julianna's in all day.

Hope your hubby enjoys the new job.

Sounds like you are getting all settled in. I hope the wee one gets feeling better really soon!

am convinced there is no such thing as a mama sick day. i remember caring for both girls with the flu and a 102 degree fever. we were all sick and in bed together.

glad your little man is doing so well.

sounds like you are doing a great job with the house.

could you fly out to maryland and finish mine, it's only been three months.

Aww hope MM feels better soon!

Thats great that the little guy made some new friends already. He sounds like he could be best friends with my cousin! He was running around the house with a light saber on Thanksgiving and it was pretty funny.

Oh and yeah, only the cool people name their decorations :)
