Well after two weeks, we FINALLY got Em in a cast.
I was up this morning at 3:45, due to a barfy Em. I can handle blood, I can handle guts, I cannot handle vomit. It makes me ill. I quarantined her to her room and have delivered broth, bread, and water. I sent the other two to bed tonight with barf buckets. I am hoping for the best. Em claims it is food poisoning, but I am not buying that.
Yesterday we celebrated what would have been my dad's 72nd birthday. For any new readers, Abs noticed that we celebrated Lincoln and Washington's birthdays, so why couldn't we celebrate Grandpa's birthday? No arguments from me, and while I think of my dad every day, it was nice to have the kids remember things about him last night over dinner. (That would be the dinner at the mexican restaurant where Gunner's three children ordered cheeseburgers. They must not be my children!)
This my friends is Blue Bell......in COLORADO!!!! We heard that it had arrived on Tuesday and the kids went crazy....well I did a little too. If you haven't had Blue Bell before, you are missing out. It's HUGE in Texas, and apparently it's a hot item here. We got to Walmart, and three cases had sold out, and they had compiled into two cases what was left till the next shipment came in. I was talking to an older gentleman while we were in there, and he had been stalking the store for two days, and was upset it was out on the east side of town before the west. We love our Blue Bell!
So now Spring Break will begin, and mind you my children have ELEVEN days out of school. That shouldn't even be allowed while your husband is deployed. It's also sad, because Gunner should have been home this Sunday. (Of course with the outbreak of the barfs, I bet he is glad he's safe in Afghanistan a little bit longer)
Anyone do/doing anything exciting for Spring Break?
