Sunday: We were still recovering from our bout with the stomach bug. I went to bed feeling pretty awful the night before, so I had no idea how the day would go. We all stayed home from church, and David got up with the kids and let me sleep. When I woke up, I felt like a new person! I was so happy to be on the mend. We all just hung out at home that morning, and we watched First Pres on TV. We didn't have any food since I usually go the grocery store on Saturday, so we all loaded into the car and picked up some lunch. It was nice to get a little fresh air. We ate our lunch at home, and then we got the kids down for a nap. I took a shower and made a grocery list that afternoon. Since I was feeling fine, David was going to go to church that night and take Jude with him (Aubrey and Alaina hadn't been well long enough to go to church). David got ready for church, and I got Jude dressed. When they left for church, the girls and I went to the grocery store, and then we picked up some dinner. When we got home, I put up groceries, we ate, and then we just played until David and Jude got home. We put the kids to bed, and we went to bed fairly early.
Monday: We laid low all day since we were still recovering. Our day was extremely uneventful. I honestly don't even remember a thing we did :) David had karate that night, and I cooked soup for dinner. I bathed the kids, and then David got home, and we put them to bed. I talked to David while he ate dinner, and I got on the internet before bed.
Tuesday: I had Circle that morning, so we got ready for that. We left a little later than we should have because I always forget how long it takes to pump :( I took the kids to the nursery, and then I went to Circle. We started a new study on Colossians, and I think it's going to be good! I picked the kids up from the nursery, and we came home. We ate lunch, and I got them down for nap. I got on the computer for a while, and I straightened up the house. When David got home that afternoon, we talked for a while, and I fixed some dinner. I then left to go to Bunco. I met my mom and we rode together. Bunco was so fun! Between sickness and holidays, I felt like I hadn't seen my church friends in a while, so it was nice to hang out with them! I won a prize for least games :) When I got home, David and I talked for a while before bed.
Wednesday: That morning, we got ready after breakfast because Jude had an appointment to get his hair cut. Alaina woke up early, so she was able to take an early nap before we left home. We were running a little late, and then I had to stop for gas. I took Alaina and Aubrey to my parents' house, and then Jude and I went to his hair appointment. He did well, but he scowled through the whole thing.

Thursday: This was a rainy, COLD day. I wanted to get out of the house, but I knew running errands in the rain wouldn't be any fun, and the park was out, so I decided that we would go to Chick Fil A to eat and play. I was nervous about taking all three kids by myself, but I decided it was worth the possible stress to get out :) I got us ready, and then I put Alaina down for her nap. As soon as she woke up, we left. Getting unloaded and inside in the rain was the most stressful part, and then we had a lot of fun! CFA wasn't crowded at all, which was a relief. We ordered and ate our food, and the kids and I had a very pleasant time just hanging out together :) After we finished eating, I got one small cup of ice cream for the kids to share, and then I let them play for a while. They had a blast, and I tried to not think about all the germs. Haha! Alaina was very content to sit in my lap and watch, so that was nice. We left when it was naptime, and the kids went down easily. While they napped, I worked around the house for a bit and got on the computer. The kids got up from their naps grumpy, and I was trying to cook dinner, so that was stressful. Alaina just wanted to be held, and Aubrey and Jude were bickering. I finally got dinner ready, and David got home. We ate soup, and then we brought a chair in from the garage that I wanted to put in our bedroom. We had a move a few things around, and we ended up straightening up and decluttering a lot in our bedroom. When it was bedtime, we got the kids down. Then we talked and straightened up more around the house before bed.
Friday: I had planned to go to the gym that morning, but my mom and my brother had come down with a stomach bug, so they couldn't keep the kids for me :( We hung out at home instead and Aubrey watched a movie. I took a shower and got dressed, and then I got the kids ready. I fixed their lunch, and when Alaina woke up, we went to Home Depot. I needed to get a few things. The kids weren't really on their best behavior, so it was kind of stressful.
|I let them both pick a paint chip at Home Depot, and of course they both picked a shade of pink. Haha!|
