Long weekend

B's parents, oldest brother and his three kids came here for the weekend.  The arrived Friday afternoon and were all here when I got home from work.  We hung out here for awhile and then went to dinner up at the Bostwick Lake Inn (darling restaurant that we have now been to twice in three weeks!).  We all had a good time.  Saturday morning we woke up, I went to get my eyebrows waxed (seriously, they were beyond gross), and when I got home B said he didn't feel well.  Within an hour of that he was deathly ill (the GI tract kind of ill).  He ended up spending almost all day in bed.  So, I ended up entertaining his family for the rest of the day, including cooking dinner for 9 all while also taking care of SYT.  It was a long, long day.  Luckily, everyone enjoyed the meal, so I was happy about that.  B was finally able to keep down advil and some water about 10 p.m. last night.  SYT slept in his pack and play on the main floor and I slept on the couch next to him.  I was completely paranoid about Spence getting horrid diarrhea and having to go to the hospital for dehydration, so I wanted him as far away as possible from the germs. 

This a.m. we all woke up and had a big breakfast of waffles and pancakes and within 2 hours one of the nieces and the nephew were also sick.  Both of them threw up multiple times today.  It wasn't food poisoning since it was being passed around, so it must have been just a 24 hour bug.  Finally, almost everyone is in bed, and no one is still getting sick.  I've been washing my hands a ton and just praying that SYT and I are still healthy tomorrow. 

Ugggggg........................I'm actually excited to go back to work tomorrow, only to get away from the germs.  I have cleaned our bedding, bedroom and bathroom today and will do the rest of the sheets tomorrow night after everyone leaves in the morning.  I did a lot of catching up this afternoon- we ordered pizza for dinner for those who were eating!  I'm hoping I got enough done today to be organized for the week ahead. 


  1. Oh you poor thing! That is terrible. Lauren got that when she was 3 months old and Logan got it when he was 3 weeks old. It sucked. The good thing is that SYT has your antibodies from BF so hopefully he will be ok. I wonder if he is the one that brought it home to B from daycare. Chris and I were the sickest Lauren's first year of daycare! Hang in there.

  2. yuck! I hope you and Spence are spared!!!
