Best. Day. Of. The. Week.

Another busy week is behind us and I'm finally taking the time to post about it.

Monday was dance day and they let the children wear their Halloween costumes if they wanted too. Maggie chose to be Pocahontas, but I didn't take a picture. :-( There was an excessive amount of drama over wearing full dance gear (footless tights, leotard and tutu skirt) under the Pocahontas vest and skirt and how on earth were we going to incorporate a feather into a ponytail!!?? I was nearly in tears by the time we walked into the studio and just forgot all about snapping a picture.

Tuesday was Maggie's half birthday and I bought the stuff to make Whoopie Pies. (We bought some at the Farmer's Market on Saturday and Maggie is a fan!!)Lots of people (including my mom and sister) thought that celebrating a half birthday was silly, but sometimes a girl just needs to celebrate. Big Daddy has been out of town so much lately and while the kids seem okay, it causes quite a bit of extra drama and sadness and I want my Daddy-fits at home. I thought making Whoopie Pies would be fun and a good way to use math in a practical way.

I woke up around 5am with a horrible headache. I was just going back to sleep around 7:30 when Maggie came into my room to cuddle. And then Ellie woke up and agreed to cuddle with us instead of wanting to eat as soon as her feet hit the floor. We stayed in bed for 30 minutes or so and when I stood up I became extremely nauseated. I assumed and hoped it was from the headache. I waited a little bit and then forced down some toast, coffee and headache medicine. The headache went away, but the nausea remained. I got partially ready so that we could go to sign language that afternoon and then I made Whoopie Pies with my girls while wanting to hurl. Maggie did her homeschool work in the living room while I was on the couch.

To make a too long story short, my sister came by to bring me a bubbly drink to help with the nausea and I started throwing up. She took the kids to my parents house and I was sick and completely alone for the rest of the day. I was still sick that night so Poppy came to get sleepover stuff for Maggie and Ellie. I was alone in our house for 20 hours which has never happened before. I was busy getting sick, wanting to die and trying to sleep. I was awake most of the night, but was better in the morning.

Wednesday started out rough, but I managed to eat breakfast and shower, get gas and then GET MY GIRLS. To say that I was lonely without Big Daddy and them is a huge understatement. I didn't teach my class at church on Wednesday and spent most of the day trying to recover.

Thursday is one of my favorite days. I really enjoy taking Maggie and Ellie to the library and we were also having our Halloween Party. Maggie was "Raggedy Ann" and Ellie was "Cinderella".CinderEllie and Raggedy Maggie

It was fun to see our library friends all dressed up and Ellie was excited about the costumes!

Cousin Callie had an early release day from school, so we had lunch, did our school work and went to Nana and Poppy's house to jump in leaves. It was a really nice day and I was able to sit in the sun with my mom and sister. My sister has some sort of crud and stayed out of work, but we let her sit outside with us anyway!

Fall is quickly becoming my most favorite season because of pictures like the one above! The girls played in the leaves (and dirt) for over 2 hours.

And my girls were worn out at bedtime.

And I totally love homeschooling.

And being SO nauseated for about 12 hours makes a girl never want to be pregnant again.

Glad you got over the bug quickly (and that no one else got it:))
I love the pic of the girls playing in the leaves. Fall is actually competing with Summer to be my favorite time of year!

I didn't know champagne helped with nausea ;-) I was thinking mounds of leaves and though y'all don't have that, y'all still have more on the ground than we do. Sounds like it was a good week overall! Glad BD is back home!

Oh, that is CRAZY terrible. I'm sorry you had the throw up bug! I think the girls look so cute in their costumes!
