This morning I woke up pleased to see that Clarissa was feeling better and then Matthew woke up with a fever and a really bad headache. I sent Josh off to school, made Matthew a bed on the couch, put on some old Nickelodeon cartoons for him on Netflix and then got a phone call from school that Josh was in the office with a fever and a headache. So Shawn went and picked Josh up from school and I got him settled on the couch by Matthew. And then the puking started. Josh hasn't thrown up yet but Matthew's stomach certainly isn't happy today.
It's been a looong morning. Clarissa is bouncing off the walls because she hasn't been out of the house in three days, the boys are miserably sick and cranky, my house is a wreck, I need a shower, I haven't been to the gym all week and I'm starting to stress out about getting the kids better and the house back in shape before our exchange student gets here on Saturday. I'm hoping and praying that I don't get the kids sickness in the meantime.
For the moment Clarissa is taking a nap and the boys are content on the couch so I'm taking a much needed moment of quiet and I thought I'd get a quick blog post in while I can.
Todays picture of the day is a total cheat, but given the way my day is going it's the best I can do. I didn't take this picture and it wasn't even taken today. Last week I got a call from my grandma letting me know that she was in town visiting my aunt and uncle and she wanted to know if we wanted to go to my aunt and uncles house to visit her. I don't see my grandma (or my aunt and uncle for that matter) nearly enough so we were really excited to spend the evening over there. Some of my cousins and their kids were there, which was really fun. We had a good time catching up with everyone.
I was dumb and didn't take my camera but my uncle had his and took a picture of my family with my grandma and he e-mailed me the picture today. It is really rare for my family to all be in a picture together since I'm usually the one taking the picture! So here's my cheater picture of the day. :) Let's hope tomorrow is a little less crazy and I can get my camera out for a real photo of the day.
