... when Matt is out of town.
Remember this post? When I had the raging case of food poisoning? And I was sick ... All. Night. Long?
Well ... it happened again.
Early Friday morning. On the LAST day of school. Of course! I got "the" bug. The one that Grady had the week before. When he too was barfing throughout the entire day.
I just never thought I'd get it 10 days after he did. After everyone else in the neighborhood seemed to get it ... all within a few days of each other.
Oh, but I did. And it was ugly. So ugly that I was up at 2:30 am praying that I could hold off vomiting (which I managed to do for about 2 hours). So ugly that after watching the room spin for 4 hours, I couldn't even lift my head off my bed to get the girls up and ready for school. So ugly that I couldn't get up to make them breakfast, or even put snacks in their backpacks, or kiss them good-bye before they walked out the door. SO UGLY that I couldn't even take Grady to school that morning, and after managing to wobble down the steps to the couch, I let him play on my iPad, fetch his own breakfast of cereal, and lay all over me until I felt well enough to get up and pour him a glass of milk.
Yeah ... it was that bad.
We had the neighborhood "End of the school year block party" that I was co-planning that I barely was able to attend in the late afternoon. I felt like cr*p, I spent the day cr*pping, and it was cr*ppy that I wasn't able to help out as expected. But everyone understood. I think...
Everything that I had planned to do yesterday, now has to be put off for another few days. So for those of you who were hoping to see pictures of the girls on their last few days of school, or better yet, read the latest edition of the FS BRU, it'll be here soon. Just as long as I can stay out of you know where long enough to use the computer ... my bathroom doesn't have an outlet in it!
