That's a perfect title for this post.
So, the vomiting continues around here. That makes day 3 if you're counting. Same kiddo. It hasn't spread but I keep wondering if my stomach really hurts or if it's just in my head.
I thought Abbey was much better yesterday. She kept at least 12 Otter Pops down, and ate some plain pasta for dinner but she woke up early, early this morning and threw up every 30 minutes for a couple of hours. Poor baby. She's nibbling on saltines and sipping slowly this morning. And I'm praying she perks up soon.
My dad is out of the hospital. Big praise! He was there for 12 days but it seems like his infection is finally under control. I'm going to Arkansas next week to see him. While there I get to be chief nutritionist and physical therapist because he needs to gain a lot of weight and strength back.
I have my first official neighborhood book club today. A group of us decided at Bunco one night that we'd give it a go and I'm super excited about it. Good thing J will be home to stay with Abbey and good thing I finished the book last night. I'm usually not a last minute kind of girl, but I'm having a hard time reading lately. I go through spurts where I can't stop reading, and then times that I can barely stay focused on a chapter. Obviously, I'm in one of my slumps.
The cable guy came yesterday and got us hooked up. We haven't had cable in about 6 years. I can honestly say I haven't missed it one bit. Except maybe during football season!
My kids are thrilled because the $10/month package we got had Disney, Nickelodeon, AND Cartoon Network. That surprised us AND the guy who installed it.
I'm going to let the newness wear off a little and then set some rules about tv viewing time. My kids have watched more television in the last 24 hours than they have in a month.
Thanks to those of you that joined the 10 on the 10th fun yesterday. I always love reading your posts, but Emily@ThePilotsWife had me in stitches. I was reading thru them and thinking "I should have a prize for the best 10 on the 1oth post", but I decided against it because 1. I hate what competition stirs up in women (it's not usually pretty, ya'll) 2. I'd have to objectively pick a winner and I hate doing that 3. It causes me stress/pressure and I usually avoid those things. So...there's no contest. That was just a fleeting thought.
I should get going. I have LOTS to do today. Since it's 55 and overcast (yet again) it's a good day for inside chores.
Side note: I really don't think summer is EVER going to get here. When ya'll talk on your blogs about spending the day at the pool or the lake I cannot even relate. We've had TWO days since May 1 that we've climbed into the 80s, but we've had more 60 degree days than I can count. And 60 isn't really very warm. Especially when it's cloudy. But enough complaining. I'm sure I'll be wishing for sixties when I'm sweltering in Arkansas next week.
