Monday Randomness

Havoc got sick with a stomach bug Tuesday evening, threw up until midnight & missed school Wedneday to sleep.

Thursday there was almost an ENTIRE INCH of snow on the ground so naturally, school was closed. (ok, not naturally, the county was actually doing rather well about not freaking on the snow thing until this). And Mayhem came down with his brother’s  stomach bug.

Which was no end of a bummer to him because it totally blew the snow day & since it hit him at around 11am, he was fine to go to school on Friday.

Thursday was also supposed to be the day the tower came down. But due to the snow & winds they put it off until Saturday.

Saturday morning I got hit with the stomach bug, but just stabbing agonizing cramps. No ‘activity’ as it were. So I spend the day in bed with my heating pad wishing whatever was tearing around in my insides would just pick an exit and LEAVE already; in between bouts of dizzyness, aches, pains & lightheadedness. (DH practically had to carry me to the bathroom at one point)

Saturday night DH got hit with it as well, but his version involved ‘activity’ so he was up and down all night long and spend most of Sunday asleep in his recliner.

Nobody came for the tower.

Supposedly they will be here today for it

We did manage a dash to Target to pick up Valentines for the boys’ class parties today. They came in packs of 16, 27 and 35. Havoc has 21 kids in his class and naturally wanted the ones that come in packs of 16. Mayhem has 18 in his and wanted the ones that come in 35 packs. So the bus driver, the gym coach, the janitor, the principal, the TKD instructor & guidance counselor are all also getting cards.

And we still have almost an entire class worth left.

Since it is Valentine’s day today I’m sharing an early photo of DH & I


Summer 1991. We’d been dating 2 years and would get married 2 years later. We were living together in this apartment while I finished grad school & he cooked at a local restaurant.

Happy 21st Valentines Day honey!

Oh such a lovely photo! I am glad you're still happy all this time later - and two gorgeous boys to show for it too.
Yukky about the stomach bugs.. hope everyone is better now.
Hope the "tower" goes ok and you still have your internet connection.

Awww - sweet pic!

Glad you guys are on the mend.

*currently knocking on wood and throwing salt over my shoulder that no one here comes down with it*

Having sickness in the house is the worst!

That is a great picture of you and your husband!

I'm only 7 years older than you? I thought it was 10.

I'm catching up quickly on the other posts I've missed - glad the tower removal got deferred, let's hope they give up altogether, eh?

Love the photo :-)
