Wiped Out

I'm tired, y'all.

I finally rolled into my driveway last night around 9:00. And went straight to bed.

I could have gotten home a lot earlier, but I ended up laying around my parents' house all day. I felt sick, tired, and miserable. And I whined....a lot. It is really easy to be whiny when I'm back in my mama's house. My inner-baby just comes rushing back.

I finally hopped in my ultra-clean van around 5:30. Wait. What was that? My van? Clean? You betcha. All thanks to my sweet daddy while I was gone on CRAZY. I'm so impressed that he was able to even brave through the squashed M&Ms and the ground-in month old chicken nuggets. He had driven me to meet Stephanie on Tuesday and was thoroughly disgusted with the state of The Red Bomb. And I guess decided that he couldn't have his grandchildren subjected to toxic waste any longer....

So...back to going straight to bed when I got home. All our long CRAZY days had finally caught up with me. And I was snoozin' great....until...I heard this...from Keaton...at 4:30...a.m....

"MOM! I'M GOING TO THROW UP!" And throw up he did. All over the bathroom. Excellent.

So...lucky me.

I now get to spend my day hangin' out with sick kids, mountains of laundry, and no groceries.

Only redeeming factor...I'm also going to squeeze in time to read this...

aw, man, amber....not the way you want to end spring break...so sorry! at least you will get some reading time. can't wait for my boys to be grown up enough to occupy themselves a bit so i can read again. i've been working on book 3 of the twilight series since we moved to washington in october. between getting settled into a new house and having a new baby reading hasn't quite fit the schedule. you enjoy. come up here and see me sometime and we can make a little trip to forks and la push. it's pretty cool to go there.

It is SO hard to recover from a vacation. I think it's more work than preparing for one, and it takes longer. I hope your little guy feels better soon. I think you and I both need a vacation without kids!

I started Twilight last night, finally. All of daughter's friends have seen the movie and she's been asking about it. She's 10! I figured I better read it so I know what I'm talking about when I tell her she can't see the movie. So far it's not at all what I thought.

p.s. Where are you in AR? I'm from LR.

Goodness girl...does he have food poisoning or the stomach flu??? Not fun at all...BUT at least no one was sick on the trip.

Priorities. Read the book in between doing the laundry and holding a cold washcloth to the back of the sick one's neck.

And my dad ALWAYS cleans my car out when we go visit.

Whoa, what a trip, and what an END to the trip - so sorry your little guy is sick. I guess maybe reading the book will help make up for it - let us know how you like it! I have not yet jumped on the whole Twilight bandwagon...thinking about it...

Oh wow! Sounds like fun. :( Hope he gets to feeling better soon.

I started Breaking Dawn last night and couldn't hardly put it down. I'm almost finished with it and will probably finish it tonight. I just couldn't help myself.

Okay...so, ya know that first book that I started less than two weeks ago? Well, here it is two weeks later and I am finishing up Breaking Dawn tonight. So pretty much I have not been productive AT ALL over Spring Break, and here it is OVER!!! I am so ashamed...I was totally not gonna be one of those people. I may need a support group.

Can I hire your dad to clean my van?

So sorry about the vomiting. Blech.

Do you think that book is weird yet?
