This Week...

This week started out pretty fun. Derek and I were staying with a couple LCA kids while their parents were out of town. Saturday and Sunday went great. We've stayed with these boys before and they are so easy. We just make sure they get fed and taken wherever they need to go and they're happy.

Then Sunday night came, and I was up most of the night feeling sick to my stomach. Which is one of my least favorite things. I sent poor Derek out on a 3 am run to get me some Sprite to try and calm my stomach. Luckily the Sprite did the trick and I'm pretty sure I was sleeping by 4 am. Not ideal, but at least I didn't get sick, which is always the goal with me.

Well, around 4 pm on Monday, I get a call from Derek saying he is feeling really sick to his stomach. I tell him to go back to our house, rather than the house we're staying at, because I definitely don't want the kids to get sick. Poor Derek spends the evening with the full on stomach bug while I am staying with the kids.  The good news is that Keith is at our house to take care of Derek. Although I felt really guilty not being there, the truth is he was probably better off with Keith, because I don't do throwing up. I am happy to do whatever I can to try and make him feel better, but if he's throwing up, I'm staying where I can't hear it. This is going to be a problem whenever we have kids, but I'll cross that bridge when we get there.

So Monday and Tuesday of this week I was watching the kids myself while Derek was sick/recovering. Throw in full work days and it has been a long week. There are lots of things on my to-do list, but I probably won't get to many of them because we have full weekend planned with my parents coming in town and several other things going on. Of course I would much rather spend the weekend with my parents than crossing things off my to-do list, so I am a very happy camper and can't wait to spend the weekend with them.

So this is what's going on this week. Not the most fun week, but things are looking up and I hope to be back next week with better topics than stomach viruses.
