Short and sweet post today. I’m still not feeling well and the only thing I can eat is saltines. Good news…our very own Mary Poppins…aka my mom…is on her way here from south of the Maxon-Dixon, to help out! She was already planning on coming today and hopefully we aren’t contagious any more!
Other good news….after much deliberation and searching, we picked out some patio furniture. The winner is…
This four piece wicker set from Target! It’s a great value for the whole set and we think it will look perfect in our new backyard! Now we still need to get some lounge chairs and possibly another patio table and chairs. This is a great start, though!
That’s it for this Wed. I’m as weak as can be. We also feel awful because we gave this crazy virus to our SIL and our nine year old nephew. We are praying my BIL (hubby’s brother) doesn’t get it! Another family from our Gymboree class is also sick. Ugh. Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day….you can imagine what ours was like! haha It was actually nice, even if we were sick.
As Emily Blunt says in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight!”.
Since Friday at midnight, we’ve been dealing with one killer stomach flu in the DePiero household! It’s been miserable. Fri night, our little guy woke up and threw up all over his crib. This has never happened before and he hasn’t been sick in 10 months. I was absolutely panicked!
As Blakey started to feel better, the virus spread to my husband and I. We both woke up Monday morning with the worst stomach flu either of us can remember. Dean stayed home from work…something he has NEVER done in his professional career. Our biggest question…how to take care of a toddler while we are both so sick? Luckily, Blake was so good and he entertained himself most of the day. We put on his favorite cartoons and were too sick to feel guilty about him watching so much TV. Oh, how I wished for a Mary Poppins to come and take care of us all!
Last night, we were all in bed by 7pm! Today, my husband feels 100% back to normal. I’m about 60%…still feel a little shakey and can’t eat much.
The only good thing? I may now have reached my goal weight! There’s always a silver lining!
Has this flu or norovirus that’s going around hit your house? What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? My plan was/is to cook a nice dinner for our family. Jury is still out on whether or not I’ll be doing that. To be continued….
