I’m laying down on the couch as I type this so please forgive any errors. I lack the energy to care!
The stomach flu hit me hard yesterday. I will spare you the details. It was very strange to know I didn’t do it to myself. It was not an anxiety thing. I haven’t thrown up of “natural” causes for probably years.
My kids are rock stars. First of all, Gwen puked her guts up in the middle of the night between saturday and sunday. I didn’t even know how extensive the damage was at first. She was bawling her eyes out for messing up her nice clean room. I spent the entire day on saturday cleaning two bathrooms and two bedrooms. all day. Unfortunately the newly steam cleaned carpet had been violated. Oh well. What can you do?
This morning Gwen came down in full on mother mode. “Mom, do you need anyfing? I can make toast. Do you want a banana? You bought all that stuff for us. What do you want me to get for you?” It was so sweet. I told her I wasn’t hungry. Then she went to the bathroom. On her way she said she would pee for me! “Remember that joke Mom?” Family joke. She is such a sweetheart.
Parker made lunch for himself and Gavin. He helped Gwen pour her cereal and milk, which she didn’t eat. He read the directions on the instant oatmeal packet and microwaved himself a bowl of it. That was super helpful to me. Gavin showered and made himself some toast. He was glad to be able to go to school.
right now Gwen is playing with a friend. The playdate was set up last week and my friend was sweet enough to pick Gwen up for me. Gwen deserves some fun after the not fun weekend we’ve had. Plus, she needs a break from the TV.
I’ve got the Propel Zero water heath picked up for me last night. I hate apple juice especially when I’m sick. I was getting worried I might dehydrate since I couldn’t keep anything down. So he hooked me up with a vitamin enhanced sport drink. What little I have consumed today has stayed in my body since 10 last night. I feel another nap coming on. I just wanted to say how lucky i am to have the awesome family I do.
