Jay had gotten up countless times and I was getting exhausted having to tell him to get in bed 50 million times, in between trying to go over finances with my husband. My husband was also getting irritated. So I sat Jay down and had a long talk with him about why he can’t keep getting up and why he needed to go to sleep, along with finding out why he is getting up. He told me he is “scared of the dark”. Which I can relate to, when I was a kid, I was scared of the dark. There are times that even as an adult it still freaks me out a little (but not for the same reason’s as when I was a kid) I will save that for another blog post though. I explained to him that Mommy and Daddy were right in the living room, that KJ was across the room (they share a room) and that his grandpa was in the next bedroom and that if he needed us he could come get any of us or one of us would come in. I tucked him in with 3 of his stuffed animals and told him to hug them close and I’ll be…it worked. He fell asleep.
I actually had meant to write a good post yesterday but by the time I sat down to write it, I was just..well you know, you probably read it.
So yesterday, The kids and I went to church, this was the first time I had gone in at least 6 months and it’s not the same church I went to then, also this was the first time my children have gone to church. I was worried about them going to the classrooms (separate classrooms at that) because I had never left them with someone I didn’t personally know before. KJ was a little hesitant about going to the lady but he managed after a few minutes of me telling him it’s okay. Jay saw the toys and the other children in the room and had no problem going to the teacher. I was in complete shock, but the service was beautiful. I plan on going every Sunday and if I make this my home church, my husband will start going with us.
After church we ate lunch and the kids took a nap, and then I decided I was going to take one too. Oh, how I love naps but rarely take them. Afterwards we went to Sam’s club and then My dad, My husband, Jay, KJ, and I BBQ’d for dinner. It was such a great Sunday minus the night part where Jay was not wanting to go to bed.
Today, I got to visit with my sister in law and my niece who I haven’t seen in almost a month. Then, I got my house back in order and did activities with the kids and now having a relaxing night with my husband.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and a great Monday.
The sun is shining and the weather is nice. After the boys get up from their naps I plan on letting them play out back (they are going to love it). Friday and Saturday, were terrible to say the least. I was still sicker than a dog, layed out on the couch not wanting to move. Only eating chicken noodle soup and crackers, while drinking sprite and taking naps. To make matters worse, not only did my husband have to work on Saturday, after work he had to work on his brother’s car. Which took from 4 in the afternoon until about 10pm. That was no fun!
Sunday, I was feeling much better when I woke up. I was excited that I wasn’t going to be spending another day on the couch. The boys and I got ready and went with my father to Sam’s club to pick up a few things. (My husband got to sleep in). Then on the way home we stopped and got some McDonald’s, requested by Jay. He got his yummy chicken nuggets that he wanted so bad. The boys share a happy meal, they still don’t eat enough between the two of them to spend money on two happy meals that will mostly get wasted.
I got a little light house cleaning done. When my husband woke up, he got to relax for just a few minutes before his brother called and said something was wrong with the car, AGAIN! So they spent another ridiculous amount of hours working on his brother’s car again on Sunday. So we basically had no time together this weekend, of half the week for that matter sense I was sick and barely able to move. But I’m hoping this week/weekend will be different.
I made delicious Mozzarella Chicken, chicken pasta, corn and garlic bread for dinner last night. I would have made a dessert but we still had cupcakes and chocolate cake left over from last weekend.
Today, I spent all morning getting the house back in order (it was a complete disaster sense I was sick). It looks so much better! Jay decided to pour his orange juice on KJ this morning, and I walked in the room to see a huge red area on KJ’s forehead and over his left eye, and little rash bumps on his left cheek. First, i thought maybe he smacked his head on something, but his face was sticky from the OJ, so I hurried and cleaned him up and freaked out, because now I’m afraid he’s allergic to the texture of orange juice. He has drank orange juice before and didn’t have a reaction, but sense it was spilled on his face he got a rash. *sigh*
Well, off to do more cleaning and then outside time for the kiddos.
and to be completely honest, it sucks, big time. I think I have the flu. This morning I didn’t want to do anything! My mother in law (bless her heart) saw that I posted about being sick on facebook, and came over. She took the boys out back for a little while and let them play, while I layed on the couch not wanting to move. Then she gave them a bath right before nap time, that way they would go to sleep and then I could go to sleep. So that is exactly what we did.
After our two hour nap, everything on me ached and I felt like I was hit by a very fast moving train. The kids were good for about the first hour after nap time, and then KJ started getting into everything, hitting the new (well new to us) t.v. we got last night. Jay, isn’t doing to bad, he keeps coming up to me and saying.
“mommy you sick”
Me “Yes baby, mommy’s sick”
Jay “I fix you”
He keeps giving me kisses and rubbing my head. He’s such a sweet boy. Well, my husband was supposed to work late tonight, but sense I just can’t take anymore, I just want to go to bed, he’s getting off work and bringing me chicken noodle soup and sprite. So I’m going to eat, drink my Sprite and hopefully crash until tomorrow morning.
On the super down side of me being sick, my schedule is out the window today and my house is a mess. *sigh*
