Adios!....Week of Sickness!

R finally had enough of being sick and dragged herself to school yesterday.  She finally had that realization that we all kind of hope to be sick some days so you can stay inside, watch movies and eat Goldfish.  Then, you really get sick.  You feel yucky.  You are so sick of the Goldfish you could smash their happy little faces against the wall and you are starting to feel awfully bored watching TV.  So, by day 3 at home, she had cabin fever.....and was happy to pop some meds before school and head out the door.  Thank goodness her fever had peaked earlier on that day and Thursday she was free and clear.  Luckily, we have a neighbor that brought home her make up work everyday so we don't have to be punished for being sick with stacks and stacks of worksheets.  With the new curriculum our district has, it is pretty impossible to miss a day of school without missing a new concept or an important test.  {I hate CScope}  I really wanted her to stay home one more day to recuperate but she wouldn't have it.  Poor thing, still looked a little weary on the way out the door yesterday.
My voice is starting to come's at that husky, scratchy point where you don't really mind losing your voice but really wish you could sing a great bluesy song.  So, this is syonora!
to the Yucks.  Because of my house full of kiddos, I did not have time to get Valentine's gifts for The Hubs or the kiddos yet.  Luckily, we don't do anything too big so a quick trip to Target or even.......Wal Mart {save me now} should take care of it.  I will also be picking up the new Twilight DVD.  Talk crap all you want....but I love it.  I totally read the books and have watched every movie.  Swooning in all of my 31 year old glory over Edward.  I always find the Twilight bashers funny.  They talk about the lack of literature and how it's cheapened the world of readers all over.  Well.....the same people that bash Twilight are the same ones....I know not all of them but some.....that watch Jersey Shore.  So, different strokes for different folks. 
Speaking of books, I started reading The Descendants this morning and I love it already.  Wonderfully written.  I am completely one of those weirdos that has to read the book before watching the movie.  
Have a fabulous, germ-free weekend, everyone!

Day 22:

When a girl has had enough TV sick's time to get crafty!
 Day 23:

 Day 24:

Ready for her first day back after 3 sick days away from school!


  1. It's always a double~edged sword with sick days.... I hate when my kiddos are sick... but I love the extra snuggle time. But then it reaches the boredom point & the extra makeup work.... and then it's just time when you are READY to get back to normal. So glad you are all starting to feel better! Have a great new week!

  2. Hi! Found your blog over in the Green Mom group on Bloggy Moms! I'm also a closet Twilight fan (shhh). So glad that everyone is on the mend. This year has been terrible so far for illness!! Both my kids have been down with the bugs as well. Never easy to see them sick.

    I'm looking forward to following your blog!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
