Well, we experienced another first this weekend. Not only was this the first time Evan has been sick (other than a couple minor colds), we got to experience what it is like when the WHOLE family gets the same stomach bug at once. Let me tell you, it is not fun. There was a period yesterday where I physically couldn’t leave my bed, Evan was screaming, and poor Ben, who actually got hit the worst with this, had to rock him for hours. I’m starting to rethink the decision to live so far away from our parents.
We were actually supposed to be in Daytona this weekend for a conference, but when Evan woke up sick at 3:30am on Friday morning (when we were supposed to leave) we had to cancel. Thankfully, Evan and I feel better this morning. Though it is still mostly a let-the-baby-play-while-I-lay-on-the-couch kind of day so far. I guess this is life with a kid, huh? (Neither of us has had a stomach virus in our adult lives before this).
We’re supposed to have my aunt and her husband over this afternoon. They’re down from Maine and want to meet Evan. I am hoping we all feel up for it. We’re also supposed to go to a campfire birthday this evening. But I’m thinking smores are not in our future.
At least I have some good books going. I’m currently in the middle of Shades of Earth – the finale to the Across the Universe series. And I wish I had the time (and energy) to just race through it. I am also just finishing up The Emerald Atlas on audio. And I’ve started Kristina Riggle’s The Life You Imagined, but I haven’t made it that far since I got caught up in Shades of Earth.
We are also in the middle of the first season of Community and the first season of The West Wing (thank goodness we installed our new Roku box in the bedroom on Friday). So some good television kept us distracted, too.
So tell me something fun you did this weekend so I can live vicariously through you from the couch.
