What a week and weekend! I'm ready to stop for a while!
Buddy's actual birthday was last Wednesday, but we really didn't do much on that day. On Friday, Sissy woke up with some sort of stomach bug and puked. And puked some more. And I did at least 4 loads of laundry.... She was so weak and sick, she just laid around all day. She didn't want food, but I tried to keep her hydrated with ice water and Sprite.
Saturday was Buddy's "party" and I say that loosely because we don't really do that big parties with loads of kids. It's too much hassle and expense - and besides, he doesn't NEED lots of stuff. You know if you invite people to a party and say "No gifts, please", they still bring gifts.
So, what we end up doing is Buddy invites his best friend over for a sleep over. We take them out to dinner. This year, Buddy's choice was Arby's... yeah, go figure. But, it's his birthday, right?
Prior to picking up the best friend, we needed to run to the Mart of Wal for a few items and also for a cake. WM was full of shufflers and just otherwise clueless individuals. Pretty stressful and add to that the fact that Sissy *still* didn't feel 100% better, but at least she wasn't throwing up anymore.
We went to dinner and by the time we arrived back home, everyone was too full for cake. The boys finally decided to have some around 10 pm. They ended up staying up 'til 3 AM playing video games. I think I conked out a little past 11 PM. LOL. I figured the Evil Twin would take care of things (he did).
I feel like time is just hurtling along right now. Sissy will be three on February 2nd and both kids have dentist appointments on the 5th, then both have pediatrician appointments on the 12th.
I have a laundry list of "to do" items - it's about a mile long! Deep breath - I WILL get it all finished. Eventually.
Probably next thing I know, it'll be March!
Oh well, that just puts us that much closer to Spring and with Spring coming, we get closer to May.
And May is Walt Disney World! :-)
