Just another weekend… March 1, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 9:47 pm

* 3 sick kids…one with RSV and 2 ear infections…one with one ear infection…one with a cough keeping her awake at night…


*Brooke (the one with RSV)  is up at 3:00am, then 4:00am…


*I forgot Leah’s shoes at dance class…she cried


*Brooke vomited in my bed…


*Medicine, medicine, medicine…


*It’s cold outside…light snow today…


*Hubby is traveling for work this weekend…


*Brooke won’t let me put her down…


*I have to unplug the toilet…even though Brooke’s not feeling well, she still wants to help…


*Lily (dog) has a seizure…


*Kami wakes up in the middle of the night crying because of her coughs…


*Brooke coughs so much she vomits on me…


*I have to run a few errands for work…we leave Staples without buying anything because Brooke won’t quit crying…


*We eat McDonald’s twice this weekend…uggh…


*Did I mention hubby is working out of town…


*Did I mention Brooke is miserable…


*We go back to Staples because I still need supplies…I forget the Avery label number to purchase labels…


*I eat an entire bag of Hershey’s chocolate eggs (these things only come out at Easter time and of course hubby had to bring a bag home from the store the other night)…


I know it could be so much worse…just struggling a bit this weekend…better days ahead…

    Hey, we’re all sick here too! It’s not easy with 3 sick kids so I feel your pain.

    Hope your hubby is home soon and that your girls feel better very soon.
    And I’m betting you don’t want to see McD’s for a while eh? 😉

  9. Tina Says:

    OH Jill that is horrible! Hopefully tonight will prove much better and everyone will get some rest. And it is ok to have the NEED to eat McD’s in times like these. Praying for wellness at your house!

  10. Tricia Says:

    Aw, so sorry everyone including the dog is having a hard time these days. I am sure the chocolate helped though 🙂

    I’m with you on the Hershey’s chocolate eggs 😉

  12. Whoa, that is one heck of a weekend! I am sorry to hear that things have been so rough for you . You are right though, there ARE better days ahead!

  13. So sorry your weekend was so lousy, just keep thinking that this will be over soon & spring is around the corner!

  14. Must be in the air…I had a whole house of sickies too…we had one wake on Friday night and make a mess all over the kitchen floor…then the little one made it into my bed on top of me last night to then tell me she was sick…and got sick all over me…
    So…sounds like we’ve both been doing way too much laundry and passing out meds!!!
    Hope you all feel better soon…my secret has been that the nightime meds work great for making them nap during the day! :o)

  15. Tanya Says:

    big hugs to you Jill x

  16. Gracie Says:

    Oh I hope the kids will feel better. It’s tough when kids are sick. My little girl vomits a lot when she catches a cold so I always try to keep her from having one. I wish you better days ahead. Hugs.

  17. Adriana Says:

    Oh Jill, I felt like I was reading about one of my days! I SO know what you are going through! I pray that today is a better day, that the kids and dog are feeling better, and that maybe someone locally can come and help you out! It is SO hard!!!! Get another bag of chocolate eggs, and sit for a “mommy moment” and enjoy each one of them! I will be praying for your day today! Hugs!!!!!!!

  19. Jen D. Says:

    If it cheers you up at all I just made my first class using JBS product! I used a piece form the Chopped Tomatoes piece from the Minestrone Collection as the backdrop of my layout…this splash of red polkas brought my whole project together perfectly!!!

  40. Jill:
    Hope your kiddos are getting well soon, nothing like sick kids and hubby out of town, so you have to deal with everything….Of course you know this will pass, but when you are in the midst of the storm sometimes it seems impossible.
    Will be sending some prayers your way for things to calm down soon. Karen aka nanakaren

  41. Ashley Meek Says:
