December Disruption

Well the stomach flu hit our house and gave us 4 young ones a good thrashing. It hit Ashley around 3 am Wednesday morning and Joe was certain it was the jumbalaya rice that Amy had given her at lunch the day before. She was immediately vindicated when myself and the boys became dreadfully ill on Thursday. Joe in his old age has luckily been spared.

One positive of this is that it's an excellent way to lose weight. 9 months to put on, 9 to come off they say. Ashley is going to be 9 months old tomorrow and according to my impressive 3 day weight loss of 5 pounds I have seen the "2" on the scale for the first time in forever. Alleluia!

So Tommy & Joe went down to Trenton for a hockey tourney last night. Tommy didn't play in the game yesterday because he was too weak but he is playing as I type this. Me and the little ones stayed home, Austin seemed to recover the fastest but then was hit with another round of nausea last night in my bed of course. ;) Lucky me.

Another positive is that it's given me lots of rest time. I've caught up on my People Magazines from November and am cruising through Eclipse. Good times.

And shall I say that I haven't gotten nary any Christmas shopping done? At least I have 6 days off of work before Christmas. Yay for Friday Christmas. No need to panic yet. It might be a good idea to get a list going though don't you think?

No more sickies!

Lists are a good thing. That way you don't go shopping, you go buying. Get the job done and back home asap if all goes well. You look GREAT for a mother of three children. Nasty way to lose weight though.

Ugh! No fun for sure! Glad you're all feeling better and I hope that's the end of the sickies for you!

Dawn said...

Thanks girls! I think we're finally in the clear. And uh oh, I'm hungry again. ;)

Amy said...

Glad you guys are all better!!

Don't think I would want what you had, even though I would love to lose 5 pounds in a couple days:)

Have fun out there with all those other crazy last minute shoppers!!

BTW - I have leftover turkey from our Christmas party, what some??:)

Dawn said...

Yummy Turkey - Amy, food is always good when it comes from you. Such a good cooker as Tommy would say.

Sorry you missed seeing me in my state on Thursday. Ick.
