Sick Day

It's another sick day in our household!  My youngest was up with a 103* fever last night and he got up still having one.  I spent the night either laying in his bed with him or checking on him.  By the time hubby got home this AM, I was pretty wiped out.  So, he stayed up with him so I could sleep some.  I got up and was sending him off to bed and before I knew it, both of them were asleep on the couch.  So, here I sit typing up this blog and trying to be quiet.  I need to be doing some housework and picking this house up... it's a mess!  Although, I did notice hubby unloaded and loaded the dishwasher.  But still, so much to do.  SO MUCH.  I need to hand wash pots and pans, sort and start laundry, wipe down the bathroom and start the disinfecting.  Starting to feel like we went on vacay and unloaded only to come back and be filled with grossiness!  BLEH.

This is how my son fell asleep on my hubby on the couch.  And I promise, he was asleep... he was snoring!  I did feel sorry for them and cover them up.  lol  How do kids sleep in weird positions like that?  I'd be SO SORE!

Anyways, on to the more 'normal' stuff.  My weight this AM is 185 flat.  Honestly, I am surprised since I've been eating a lot of carby stuff.  Mostly noodles and rice.  When I'm sick, I don't really want much else and even though I don't know for sure I was sick, I sure felt it and that is all I wanted.  I tried to be good, but when you're sick, you're sick and can only do so much.  So, I was surprised at the 185.  I hope it's not a fake number... I'm pretty happy with it.  LOL

Well, only thing left to report is that we did indeed have a little party for my sick little man.  But thankfully, it was before he got sick.  We had a little belated b-day party on Saturday.  I made him a monster cake.  Here's a pic.  :)

It was chocolate devil's food double layered with strawberry in the center and vanilla icing (tinted green) on top.  Everyone seemed to really like it and little man ate it up!  And I won't lie, it was sorta fun to make a silly cake!  I think there are only a couple of pieces left.  I only had one like a good girl!  I started to eat some the other day, but it just didn't hit the spot.

Ok, that is all for now.  Not much else to talk about until all of this sickness is over.  I feel like we're being beat down with it.  Hope all my friends up north stayed safe and are sound.


  1. I hope everyone feels better, and gets enough sleep! You guys sound exhausted.

    Happy Halloween. The monster cake is adorable!

  2. Aww, that pic is so cute, and that cake is adorable. I hope you guys are feeling better. I'd like to completely skip being sick at all this winter. Last winter everybody in this house was constantly sick. I blame it on the stress and my cousins germ-sack children. Eesh. My diet is wayyyy better now than it was last year, and my stress level has gone down ten fold, so hopefully we won't have to take turns being ill all winter again. Fingers crossed!
