We saved a spot just for you!

Happy Valentine's Day!


This is what the kid's Valentines look like this year (with a cute Walgreens border), but now that we are all sick, I don't recommend stopping by to claim your spot. Sam called for me at 5 this morning and because I was too tired to care I just let him come into our bed. Brian was gone already and I just wanted to get back to sleep asap and avoid waking Julia. Within 30 seconds of being in our bed he started making that telltale vomiting sound. In one swift move I grabbed the bowl next to the bed and got it into position just in the nick of time. That's when I noticed that it wasn't 5am, but barely midnight. If I had seen the clock correctly I would have been changing Sam's sheets instead of rinsing out a bowl. I wouldn't have let him come in our room that early, but obviously I'm glad I did. Julia slept straight through the night again (even though she'd soaked through her jammies and sleepsack) so I was able to get some decent sleep - as decent as it can be with two feet in the small of my back. Somehow Sam turned sideways on our bed. My biggest concerns today include: how Brian will get any sleep when he returns from a night of plowing, how to keep us hydrated now that our symptoms include diarrhea, how to keep my milk supply up when I can't eat much, and how to survive in a house that is getting messier by the second. I guess I'll just look on the bright side - I won't gain extra weight today since I can't eat chocolate.

  2. I was going to offer to come play with the kids tonight so you and Brian could sneak away for dinner or something...but that doesn't sound like that would be happening! Let me know if you need anything-and get well!

  3. Oh Carrie... If I was closer I would put a germ-resistant mask(sorry, have to.) and come over and help pick up and get you guys some lunch (if you could keep anything down/in). I hope you all feel well soon, man oh man how that isn't a way to spend Valentine's Day, let alone any other day! I too wonder how/why they turn sideways in bed, it drives me nuts!

  5. Ugh! I wrote you an email, but didn't click over to your blog until now. I am so sorry to see such terrible news. Double ugh! Here's hoping you guys will survive the afternoon, that Brian can hang in there on little sleep as well, and that you all get better SOON!
