whirlwind of a week

What a whirlwind of a week!

Last Friday was a bit shitty. The very important meeting that I went to ended up with the other side not willing to budge, not one little smidgen so things will remain status quo for a while now – bummer.

Friday evening turned out to be a lot of fun. Corey and I took the kids to the local fair in town. Rode rides and listen to the band on the courthouse lawn. My little daredevil boys rode the hammer but my favorite part was the family rides on the scrambler. Boys in one seat girls in another. The kids laughed so hard and smiled so much while on this ride. This is truly what summer nights are made of. A very nice teenage girl gave the kids an entire sheet of tickets that she didn’t want. What an awesome gesture from a very nice young lady ~ thank you! We stayed on the courthouse lawn listening and dancing to the band and then headed home. We are still not sure if it was from all the rides or from being sick earlier in the week, but Garrett got sick on the way home. Apparently this less than 5 minute drive was too much for him and the van, his car seat and himself was covered ~ yuck.

This is pretty much how the rest of the week went… vomiting and diarrhea and staying home from work/daycare. Kylie had it Saturday and Sunday, Corey caught it on Sunday, mommy had it Monday and Tuesday, Garrett had it again on Wednesday and David had it (very very mild case of it) on Thursday. Trying to look at the bright side of things, we were able to have a lot of family bonding staying home this week. Here today is Friday. Corey is staying home again to get it completely kicked out of him, the kids are at daycare and mommy is finally back to work (and so happy to be here!) This week of cleaning out garbage cans that kids vomited in, washing tubs and bathroom floors because little boys couldn’t control their diarrhea, the wonderful smell of bleach and the constant laundry – yep, I am happy to be back at the office!

editing this post to add a picture ~ can you believe my little guys (ages 4 & 5) rode the hammer!

(note this is not the hammer they rode just a picture from the internet that looks just like the one they rode!)
