Good Morning Wednesday, November 23, 2005

  1. Well, I have a feeling I'll be up after midnight so I thought I start the thread.

    Poor 4 year old has been sick - tummy ache, diarrhea, n/v . .. .since about 3 p.m. Pale little face . .. laying on the couch near the bathroom. DD and I are hoping we don't get it . .. .I asked her to help me clean for Thanksgiving, just in case we get sick tomorrow. At least the house will be clean. Hey, she even cleaned the pantry for me!

    So, I've been cleaning the wood floors with Murphy's Oil Soap and my knees are killing me . . watching the American Music Awards . . Ok - Keith Urban is just . . well, nevermind.

    Y'all will have to make your own breakfast . . . . I am NOT tempting fate by eating anything. We've been downing ginger though . . .you are welcome to some tea.

    Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

    Awww Steph, I'm sorry your baby is sick!! I'm also sorry you have to clean though, I hate that myself. Although, I must say that Keith could make things a little easier. Both my kids will be home today so probably lots of cartoons, lol!

    My oldest is driving up from So Cal tomorrow and his brother will be coming up with my dh after they attend a football game together.

    Oops, there goes my 4 year old to the bathroom again. I'm amazed - all my kids have always made it to the bathroom when they were sick, except when being awakened in the middle of the night.

    I keep wiping everything down with anti-bacterial wipes.

    I'm glad the family's getting together! My 2 yo had the runs for about a week that has ended as of yesterday. I mean 6-8x a day, eat the skin off as soon as it hit the diaper. Thank goodness it's over and I pray that y'all don't have to deal with it for that long. Poor baby!

    Sorry to hear about you 4 yo Stevielynn. I have such fond memories of my mom spraying the house down with Lysol when my bro and I were sick. Piece of advice: make sure your kid has elastic pants on. I was sick once, threw up with a belt on.....ouch!

    Get to baby sit my twin nieces tonight! They'll be one on Dec.1. Not too sure I want to see 'em though. They're teething and I swore when they were wee little ones that I'd be leaving the country when that time came around. Made it through 2 teeth so far so I'm an old pro. Give 'em some whiskey and they'll be fine. Kidding everyone!

    Keith does nothing for me. Give me um, I forget their names. Faith Hill's husband and Renee's ex. Preferably together
    Hope everyone's relatives don't drive them crazy this turkey day.

    Good morning family,

    Steph - Sorry the little one is sick. Hugs from me.

    Southernlpn - Enjoy having the kids home today!

    Bethin - Have fun with the twin nieces. Faith Hill's husband is Tim McGraw and yes, I'll take him any day.

    Just sitting here wrapped in my snuggle wrap sipping my hot chocolate. Baked beans are in the crock pot for potluck at work tonight. Have to work the next 3 nights. Have a great day to everyone who follows. And Happy Thanksgiving Eve.

    Hi everyone!

    Awww Steph, I hope your lil one feels better soon, poor lil guy. I agree about Keith Urban .... I'm seeing him in concert next month, I'm excited!

    Are yall ready for Thanksgiving? I'm ready for some pie! We're having Thanksgiving dinner here at our house with all the family ..... should be good And my sister is in town for break, so I've been loving that .... it's great having her home!

    I was supposed to work last night and tonight but ended up calling in sick both nights ...... I feel TERRIBLE about calling in like that especially being new. But I've had a high fever off and on since Sunday night. Went to the doctor this morning, he said it looks like I have bronchitis, prescribed me a different antibiotic, and a decongestant. He told me not to go to work the rest of the week and wrote me a note. So at least I have a note for when I go back, so they don't think I'm just being a slacker. I don't remember the last time I was this sick .... I can't even remember the last time I ran a fever, back in high school maybe.

    I'm back off to bed here in a bit. I hope yall have a great night and have a great day for those getting up soon!

    I'm at work, just finished catching my report sheet up to the moment, chugging my 9th Diet Coke of the shift (hey, I gotta stay awake!). It's going to be a long day. My mom and grandmother are coming to town today just long enough for her to have an MRI (recovering from brain tumor) and to have our Thanksgiving together at Ryans. I do have lots to be thankful for! And I will be with my dh. Also gonna buy some turkey for my 14 cats (including 4 baby kittens) and three dogs. It's finally cold- frost this morning for the first time this winter! Last week I was in shortsleeves...
