R woke up at 2:30 am with a fever and upset stomach. At 8:30 she told me she didn't feel good...bad headache and just a yucky feeling. I gave her some ibuprofen and also mentioned that she WOULD be going to school (we've had many days where she has prepped the night before to try to stay home from school). So, needless to say...I felt like the crappiest mom in the world when she woke me up and I could immediately tell she was sick. Flushed cheeks, clammy hands, wide eyes and willingness to take any medicine to make her feel better. She was up and down all night, her head was pounding and her stomach sick. I'm letting her sleep as long as possible this morning...and hoping that it doesn't turn into a traveling a stomach bug.
Now on to more fun things...that don't involve throw up....5 Question Friday! Link up over at My Little Life to join the fun. Just copy, paste, answer and post!
1. Do you and your spouse go to bed at the same time?
sometimes. He works nights sometimes and that's when I find I go to sleep way too late. I guess I am relishing in all the alone-ness of it all. Usually we both head to bed around 11. Does it count when I am still watching TV and he's asleep beside me on the couch? Because that happens a LOT.
2. A question for the ladies...What kind of facial hair do you like on your man?
I love a goatee! When B got the job he has now...at a refinery....he had to shave his hunka-hunka-burnin'-love goatee and I literally cried. Yes, cried. I loved that goatee, it was part of the wild and crazy kid I fell in love with. I still miss that thing. During our 2 weeks of summer vacation he lets it all grow and I love it. When he had to shave though he did keep his mustache. So...I guess I can live with that. Seeing as though he'll have this job forever, I'll have to.
3. What's the worst vacation you've ever taken?
I had a bad part of a vacation.....
Colorado, I was 15 I think....and had some kind of stomach bug. (I thought I wasn't going to include throw up in the 5QF)....my dad had just married my step mom that year and we were in this amazing condo. I was sick for a full 24 hours, laying on the bathroom floor dyyyying. My dad took care of me and I remember catching Pee-Wee Herman's Playhouse on at like 4:30 am. After that the trip was amazing! Snow, skiing, my BFF, cute boys, heated pool and hot tub. Ahhh, the good ol days.
4. What's the first-ever blog you followed?
hmmmm........I checked my blog buttons and it would have to be Blog Giveaways. I won quite a few things. I still try to every once in a while when I'm on a kick.
5. Do you enjoy amusement parks?
I LOVE amusement parks!!! I'm not talking Disney....I haven't been
Oh, AstroWorld...you are missed.
